9-29 pod cast

the 27 minute one

Said base your love for Brett on other things, not on Teds ego..Then goes on to explain why Ted's ego was not the reason why Brett is gone..

about 8 mins in is when it starts

pointed out that on June 20th when Brett called to officially say he wanted back was the day after OTAs ended..
Mike McCarthy didnt want Brett to come back...TED DID

Then I applaud Mike McCarthy for finally stopping the charade and Ted Thompson for taking the blame and standing behind McCarthy, while being the most ridiculed and hated man in Wisconsin.

Still a lot of speculation. We will never know EXACTLY what happened. Interesting discussion though.

Wow, great post, the audio that is. I'm glad someone of the media has said what I've been saying for quite some time (and McCarthy has implied) that it was him that turned Favre away, not Thompson.

They also touched on a lot of other things too. And holy crap, you can tell these two have spent a LONG time scoping through the details of all the Brett/Packers split. I was glad to hear them point out the Packers mistakes in this too. Because they are definitely guilty as well.

One of the things said that I feel is not understood by a lot, or maybe missed. Favre is used to always getting HIS way. When the Packers didn't let him back in the second time (Brett changed his mind end of March, wanted to play, etc) he got pissed off.

I wish I had a dang transcript of that cuz there was a lot of good things said.

I agree...When I first heard this wasn't to sure if it should be posted since it is a subject that could very well lead to big arguments again..

But it has information that reporters ( that I ) have NEVER heard said in public.

Wow, very insightful. Thanks for the post. I had no idea Mike McCarthy was the guy that didn't want him back at first in April.

Excellent discussion of the subject. The time lines all seem good. I agree 100% with the team letting him go at that point. One thing that wasn't talked about, that really gets under my skin is that even after everything played out. Brett jumped straight to, Give me my outright release. Not even trying to use the middle ground, of. Well since you don't want me, give me permission to seek a trade.

Okay now my funny is over.


Click HERE to read the press conference that made me think it was Mike (because he basically said it it was his decision) and not Ted that didn't want Brett.

beast (14h) : I'm not sure if it's still true, but it used to be hard to get sacks on Eli because he'd toss one up when linemen got semi-close (which lead
Zero2Cool (15h) : Slam Eli a lot very early. Once rattled he can't regain composure.
beast (15h) : since slot WRs might be the Packers strength depth/talent wise
beast (15h) : With AR's passing % down field so low, I've been saying they should go with short passes like the Pats used to do, especially since slot WRs
beast (15h) : What's going to be needed against the Giants is OL and DBs (IMO)
Smokey (28-Sep) : Cook(TE) has time to heal, but may not be needed against NYG on Oct 9th .
Zero2Cool (27-Sep) : . Aaron Rodgers has a completion percentage of 33.3 on 10+ air yard passes this season (tied for the lowest in NFL).
