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 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.

Yeah, the Packers are worried.

I think it's pretty clear that the only people who still care about this at all are (in order of how much it matters to them): Favre, Packers fans, and Vikings fans. I'm guessing the team and FO are a little busy with other tasks at this point, and I would imagine that they really don't care.

Charley Walters is as bad as senile Sid Hartman. He looks just as bad as the MJS sports writers when Favre was playing good for the Pack. Ugh.

I think the reporter has a point. I mean, look at these statistics:

Code:
Comp Att Yds Avg TD Int Sck SckY Rate
RODGERS: 27 38 458 16.9 6 0 0 0 151.096

FAVRE: 14 22 146 10.4 1 0 2 12 63.636


Based on those numbers, I think Ted Thompson should be on the phone right now proposing a heads-up trade, Rodgers for Favre.

Favre envy, indeed.

With the absence of a 'sarcasm gauge' my computer has, without those posted stats, I would have believed you... Then discredited every other post you've made from this point on.. lol

The difference is, Favre was "playing good for the Pack". :lol: He looked more like a washed up QB clinging to what tenuous shreds of his talent still remained vs. Houston than I even anticipated he would. VS. HOUSTON for chrissakes. It's entirely possible he's not comfortable enough yet with the team, and it will improve. I don't think that's it though.

Oh.. but it doesn't matter how good he was playing for the Pack.. Your precious sports media guys slurped up his jockstrap somethin' fierce. Unfortunately, that bad habit has creeped it's way across the border.

And as far as how Favre played.. We shall see. =)

To be fair, Houston kept Rodgers also pretty well in check. His stats from that game:

19/30 (63.3%) for 295 yards (9.8 avg) and 2 TDs, 1 INT and 2 sacks for -16 yards. Passer rating of 104.2. Rushing: 1/4 (4.0 avg) for 0 TDs.

Certainly not a bad performance by any stretch of the imagination, but not exceptional either.

lol I mis-communicated. What I meant to say was, "As far as how Favre WILL PLAY, we shall see. Meaning.. We don't know how well or bad he'll do in the regular season until.. Uh.. The regular season.

It wasn't a silent confidence vote of mine in Favre's abilities/nonabilities to help my favorite NFL team.

Yeah I missed that whole game. Ok so strike the last sentence. You get the idea.
