Charley Walters: Do the Green Bay Packers have Favre envy?
Pioneer Press
Updated: 09/01/2009 11:58:02 PM CDT

If Ted Thompson and Mike McCarthy were watching Brett Favre quarterback the Vikings in Houston on TV Monday night, and it's expected they were, the Green Bay Packers' general manager and coach had to have glanced uneasily at each other and murmured, 'Uh-oh.'

It was merely an exhibition game, but it put Favre on display, and he showed he still has plenty of what it takes to win, especially with the Vikings.

Thompson and McCarthy two years ago figured it was time to move on without Favre, who turns 40 next month. But they were uncertain whether they were right that's why they included the poison pill prohibiting Favre from playing for the Vikings when they traded him to the New York Jets.

Now, Thompson and McCarthy have to be nervous. And some Packers rooters have to be wondering, too, about the decision to ingloriously dump their beloved future hall of famer.

Favre insists there was no Packers revenge motive in signing with rival Minnesota. But his display against the Texans strong, on-target passes and poised field leadership forecast that the Oct. 5 "real game" between the Vikings and Packers at the Metrodome should be one of the classics in sports history.

And in what should be even better, there will be the "Classic II" game between the Vikings and Packers three weeks later in Green Bay.


I hope I didn't put this in the wrong place, or it's been done already. I just found it humorous. Some how I don't think Ted Thompson and Mike McCarthy are saying "uh oh".

Don't think there was Uh-oh on their minds either based on Favre. Vikes defense is looking pretty stout against the run again, passing still has some holes. Peterson opening run was a big Uh-oh as well.

Other than that, and the 2 min drill drive, there was really not much to uh-oh over from the Vikes offensively.

I was just about to post this.

This is the equivalent of Saddam Hussein puffing his chest out and thinking that America was shaking in its boots when he acquired some old, reworked scud missiles.

I don't think the game plan changes when playing the Vikings: try to shut down Peterson/Chester. Passing downs - blitz.

Maybe the author should have mentioned that Childress was probably saying 'uh oh" when Aaron Rodgers was moving the ball down the field with ease on almost every drive of every game so far. Or maybe how Childress was saying "uh oh" when he saw our defense forcing multiple turnovers every game, giving the Packers a +10 turnover margin through the first 3 games.

Good point!
I STILL laugh when i read how the Packers supposedly "dumped" Favre. He retired, unretired, the Packers were gonna let him come back as the starter, he quit again.
How is that "dumping" him?
I wish these so called "reporters" would get that straight. At least SOMETHING factual!

Get over it. No matter what happens, no one is proving anyone wrong or right. It was the right decision to go with Rodgers when we did.

Dude, it's not even close. Favre completed maybe 1 downfield pass with zip on it. Everything else was dump offs or incompletions.

Cheesey: THANK YOU again for all you do.
Cheesey: You do all the work, while some think they don't have to honor your few rules.
Cheesey: Kevin, you KNOW how much I appreciate this site.
uffda udfa: Nope. Too much pressure for them.
Zero2Cool: NFL MVP's don't seem to win the Super Bowl the same year, do they?
Zero2Cool: Panthers played uninspired and predictable, actually (and sadly) reminded me of the Packers. :(
Zero2Cool: Thanks 68md, good to know some notice and appreciate.
Zero2Cool: Holding a different or less than popular view is perfectly fine. You fail to understand this even though I repeatedly tell you. It's annoyin
uffda udfa: Good night, Smokey.
Smokey: good night uffda.
uffda udfa: Wonder how Colts fans feel, and Mr. Irsay?
uffda udfa: Today, anyway.
Smokey: DEFENSE DOES WIN CHAMPIONSHIPS TT !
uffda udfa: Carolina will never be back to a SB under Cam Newton.
uffda udfa: Denver D just dominated the current MVP and the former this year.
uffda udfa: Cam for LVP in the SB. No character.
uffda udfa: Newton is a wuss. MVP? LOL.
uffda udfa: #VonFire
uffda udfa: People who have passion and expectations aren't A words. Accepting less than the best doesn't make you not one either.
uffda udfa: Sorry, Kevin...maybe you called Dakota an A word and not me? Had to be one of us.
uffda udfa: Marshawn Lynch announced his retirement in a cool way via twitter. What could've been in Green Bay, Marshawn!
uffda udfa: It's okay... you called me the "A" word. All because I don't tickle the ears. I get it.
uffda udfa: So someone like Buck deserves privileges because he's a better fan than me due to his flattering opinions?
68md: wet blanket ? He works his ass off to keep the place going for you ?
Smokey: Zero, Why are you such a wet blanket host ? A real SB "Chat" should have been a priority for this site. Wet Blanket strikes again.
Zero2Cool: BTW, I'm not saying you're an asshole. I'm stating a fact, that's all.
Zero2Cool: You don't get it. You confuse right and privilege. Assholes don't deserve privileges. Get it, got it, good.
uffda udfa: Talib playing a Burfict half so far.
uffda udfa: You have an R rated section on a Packers board. I think moving the guys you really don't want rocking the boat to their own forum is a great
uffda udfa: I think the same was likely said at KFAN when it was suggested they have a Packers show. I believe they still have it. I used to produce it
Zero2Cool: Seriously think what you're asking and do so before asking. Unreal.
uffda udfa: Aaron walking gingerly in that SB MVP introduction thing.
uffda udfa: May I suggest something? How about a "Packers Cynics" sub forum. A place for the Dakota's and me. I would exclusively post there.
Zero2Cool: One way or another, there is going to be a big change coming to PH.
uffda udfa: I don't want to be difficult but you do for some reason. I know you've been dealing with a lot.
