one bit I heard is that he is denying that he ever told Peter King he wanted to stick it to Ted

Peter article

The reality, Favre knows now, is he not only wanted to play again, but he wanted to show Green Bay -- particularly general manager Ted Thompson -- that it was making a big mistake in going forward without him. "Part of me coming back last year, I have to admit now, was sticking it to Ted,'' he said in a rather startling admission.

I'll sure be glad when the whole "drama" is over.
Hopefully by the end of this season.
But it sure has been a wild ride.

Just for Zero


Seems like the questions asked are not provided..


Quote:
# Are you motivated to stick to Ted Thompson: "Never was motivated for that reason. So, no. It had nothing to do with it."

# "I didn't say it was about revenge. It wasn't about revenge to begin with. The fact that I had a torn biceps had an affect on how we finished up. I really wasn't willing to have the surgery...I felt like I could play. I think I proved that last year. Being released by New York, I still had to have the surgery to play at a high enough level. I eventually decided to have it."

# "What I said with Peter (King) was that it was human nature -- I didn't use the word revenge -- to prove to someone that I could play. That's not motivation enough, never would be for me. It's too long a season."

# "I want to win it all. I don't think I have to prove anything to anyone."

# "There were numerous, numerous throws last year...Not only was their pain, but there was (inaccuracy). It seemed like it was more and more frequent."

# "I can't answer that. I'm sure there are some people that are disappointed or upset. Sixteen years there I know how personal the Packers are to the fans. I'm very aware of that and that's the beauty of the organization, and will always be....I know people take a lot of ownership in that and that's great...

But my intentions are not to doing anything else but to play and hopefully lead this team to a championship...I'm proud of the career I had there. If there are people disappointed and picking sides, I understand that. It is what it is. I can't control that."

# Better at handling emotions: "I would like to think so."

# On whether he wanted to play in Green Bay in '08: "Yes, it was. Why wouldn't it be? I had just had, in my opinion, the best year in my career."

# Why Minnesota? Why not stay with the Jets? "Um...Well, I wasn't willing to have surgery at that time. That's first and foremost."

# On his release from the Jets: "None of that matters now anyways. The only thing that matters in the game on Monday night. I'm having a good time."

# On why not talk to Aaron Rodgers: "For what? I think Aaron has not only done well, but I think he'll have a great career. I said that from Day One. That's why they drafted him. No one's called me. I've talked to Drive...I don't know what to tell you."

# On whether the damage can be repaired: "I'm sure it can but no one's concerned about that now. We'll deal with that later."

# "He's got all the tools. Very knowledgeable in the offense. There was no reason why the offense couldn't be productive...I think he's done a very good job and I'm not surprised by it all."

# Do you have trouble making decisions: "No, I don't think it's a problem here. It's all based on winning and what have you done for me lately. The only thing I can do is do what's expected of me here. All the stuff that's happened in the past is over and done with."

# Any doubts lasting the season: "You know what, I thought about it my first, second and third year. The chances of any player lasting a season is tough. But you know what? Like I played the other day, I'm going to hit, block. Am I sure I'm going to get up everytime? No, but nobody is."

I think the last time Favre and Rodgers spoke was shortly after the Giants game where Rodgers was invited to the Favre house for dinner.

Look it up on the forums. We have a search feature. I've posted it before. Busy scouring the net for other "work" related things. :)

LOL uh huh

here is dinner


Quote:
Rodgers is in a weird spot with Favre. At the end of last season, the formerly chilly relationship got warm, with Rodgers going to Favre's home for dinner. But a frost settled over the friendship in the offseason, when Favre retired and then came back, hopeful of getting his old job back, a job the Packers had given to Rodgers. When they both went to the ESPYs in Los Angeles, they didn't connect, even though they were in the same audience. I asked if the relationship was harmed forever.

"I sure hope not,'' Rodgers said. "I have so much admiration for Brett. I would love for the relationship to go back to what it was.''

Here is Bruce Ciskie's take from NFL FanHouse. Rodgers says he tried calling Brett. Brett says no one called him.
