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.

Too bad there isn't fantasy sports page..


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.

I think this is stupid. Favre WILL melt down. A choker on a team with a long history of choking.

http://msn.foxsports.com...ackers-have-Favre-envy?-

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.'

I hope to hell Ted Thompson and Mike McCarthy weren't watching Brett favre play Monday night.

In fact I can almost guarantee they weren't.

I hope to hell they are busy getting ready for The Bears, then The Bengals, ten The Rams, after that they can start getting ready for The Vikings.

I'll say it again, some of you are so fixated on Brett Favre, that it is going to be a very long year if The Vikings happen to beat The Packers in one of those games.

There is 16 games to a regular season, division games a little more important than the rest, but it will not be the end of the world if The Packers lose one.

The writer of the article is full a crap if he thinks any of The Packer coaching staff were watching how Brett played. IT IS PRE-SEASON, IT DOESN'T COUNT.
Nobody knows what teams are working on or what they are trying to get tape of during their games.

Bottom line is this, Vikings think Brett Favre gives them the best chance at winning. IMHO I do to. Does this mean they will? Only time will tell.

I am more anxious to see what The Packers do the first 3 weeks of the season, then I will worry whether The Vikings are going to be a threat or not.

Aaron Rodgers > 40 year old Brett Favre

I think the right decision was made. It's interesting to see the Vikings reporters writing about Favre like this much like the Jets reports did. Hopefully Minnesota reporters don't blame him if the team doesn't win the Super Bowl, but you know they will.

I didn't think Favre was that amazing Monday night. He did some nice things, but he really checked down and let everyone else do the work. I want to see Favre late in the year make the big throw to win the game. That's what he needs to do. Three of the last four years suggest he can't.

At least we get to find out. I'll enjoy watching Minnesota when GB isn't on. They'll be fun to watch and the Green Bay market will get their games.

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!


Last time i checked he got dumped, he did come back to the Packers and they traded him and those are the facts look it up :P

Then "dumped" is NOT the right word. He brought whatever "dumping" that happened on himself by his own actions.
He was NOT just cut loose (as the term "dumped" would imply) for no reason. HE caused it all by his first, and then second pulling out, or "retiring".
He "dumped" the Packers TWICE, before they "dumped" him.
How about admitting that FACT, and putting the blame where it SHOULD be?
(I know you won't)

Check again, he RETIRED. A wall absorbs facts about Brett more efficiently than yourself at times.

We've had this non-debatable argument a bazillion times. Facts are facts and Favre nut-sack ticklers refuse to comprehend them.


The Packers have no reason to be saying 'uh-oh' about Brett. They sure as hell better be saying 'uh-oh' to Adrian Peterson. Let Brett dink and dunk all day. Any average QB can do that. If the Vikings get a lead on a team, they will most likely win because they can run the clock out and dink an dunk it to death.

If the Vikings need to come back, they will be screwed more times than not because their offense is not built for quick strikes, unless Adrian busts one of course.

I'm not scared and I know our coach and GM were not scared with watching Favre playing. I say 'know' because they are professionals, not over reacting writers who need to eat bleach an suffer the consequences.

You said he was dumped. Then said he was traded. Wrong. He retired. Then unretired after the Packers had already moved on. Went through training camp, etc ... Brett even said himself I KNOW THEY HAVE TO GO WITH AARON, HES BEEN THERE THE WHOLE OFF SEASON. His gripe was, he wanted go CHOSE which team he went to. Understandable, but unreasonable. What the hell is so hard to understand about this? have you not listened to him? have you not read his interviews? do you not comprehend fucking English? or English? or mother trucking English? ANY!?!

March 08, nothing left give, i retire.
July 08, im back
Feb? 09, im done, thanks jets been great, but im done
July 09, cant do it, can't make it through a season, body wont let me

Stop being a smartass and throw your bias out the window for 2 seconds and you'd learn something.

Poor Hazer cuts out ALL the stuff that happened that doesn't fit his "view" of it.
He sees Brett retiring, unretiring, retiring again, then getting traded as "BRETT WAS DUMPED! TRADED TO THE JETS JUST OUT OF THE BLUE!"

Don't expect his view to ever change.
If you asked him, he's probably say the Jets "dumped" Favre, and the Vikings saved his life. LOL!

But if you look at what you wrote again.. It's kinda what happened. lol

He put his slant on it, but it's still accurate when you boil it all down. Regardless on how you look at being traded, you can also look at it as being dumped (and considering there were rumors all over the place that Favre was going to TB.. You bet your ass it feels like he was 'dumped' in NYC).

It looks to me as if you guys are arguing toMAYto/toMAHto. Pointless.

If I trade my wife in for a newer model, I'm not dumping her. I'm giving her an opportunity to obtain greater happiness in a fresh relationship. :downtown:

Ohh.. You know they will. Outside of a few guys (of which moved on to national media outlets) I really dislike the Twin Cities sports writers, for the most part.

That's the thing.. Minnesota has been looking for a QB to do exactly what you said Favre did (checked down, let the rest of the team do the work, etc). Ideally, that's what they want. By not showing their deep ball often, teams don't gameplan for said deep balls as much. Look.. Bernard Berrian lead the league (or was in the top 10) last year in yards per catch average. If Gus Frerotte can make those deep, big throws.. I'm pretty sure Favre can.
