So it happens to the Bucs and people dont blame their GM, but happens to the Packers and its all Teds fault

Quote:
About a week or more into training camp last season, Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach Jon Gruden went to bed with visions of regular-season touchdown passes dancing in his head.

He woke up the next day to discover nothing had changed . . . .

Jeff Garcia and Brian Griese were still his guys.

Gruden thought his quarterback for the 2008 season was going to be none other than Brett Favre. But the Green Bay Packers decided to trade Favre to the New York Jets.

"I talked to Brett on the telephone," Gruden said Wednesday during a conference call with reporters. "I think if you talk to Brett yourself - both of us thought he was coming to Tampa. I went to bed about 20 minutes after 12 or 12:30 (a.m.) thinking we had Brett Favre. I was sure we had Brett Favre.

"When I woke up the next day, Santa Claus didn't arrive. It was a sad day for me."

This season, Gruden is an analyst on ESPN's "Monday Night Football," working with Mike Tirico and Ron Jaworski.

"My understanding was we had it done," Gruden said. "(Tampa Bay general manager) Bruce Allen was working with Ted Thompson in terms of the compensation. And I really don't think any of us knew there was another partner that was willing to get involved at that point. So I think we were both thrown a curve ball. Both of us, Brett and I, thought we were going to get the deal done. There was another partner that developed later that evening, somewhere across the next seven or eight hours."

The Bucs GM didn't have the authority to trade Favre away.. Teddy Thompson did. Now, yeah, Bruce Allen dropped the ball a bit too, but ultimately Thompson was in the drivers seat. That's why he gets the 'blame' in some eyes..

Trade Favre to a Week 4 opponent OR Trade him to a team you won't play in a few years?

Favre was/is pissed at the Packers. With that motivation, you don't want to go against him.

Yeah, TOUGH decision.

Typical Vikings fan, see only what you want and ignore the rest. You had mentioned "blame" in your post.

Why is it people seem to forget that Moss was a FA the following year and Moss had made statements that he wouldn't play for the Packers and Ted Thompson but thats ok we understand you Ted Thompson crotch sniffers don't want to remember that part Razz

Because this article is not about a free agent it is about trading for a player and one team thought it was a done deal and another team stepped in and said no... we got him..

So what does your statement have to do with it other than your trying to be a dick?

There was no way in hell Ted Thompson was going to trade Lord Favre to anyone in the NFC and for damn sure trade him to one of the opponents during the season we all knew this. So them thinking he was going to Tampa were as Gruden said waiting for Santa Clause.

Then tell that to Jon and Paul Allen..

I know before the trade I was talking to a relative of Bretts ( and not the pilot) nephew of Bretts mother..

I think I posted the info he had..there was a conference call and terms of a trade were talked and agreed on..Chris Simms and a 3rd rounder for Brett

So dont sit there and say we all know Ted wouldnt do it, cuz he was going to until Jets came in..

Then yes Mike McCarthy and Ted decided it was best to shop him where they wouldnt have to play him

It was a smart move

the Jets coming in was late and surprising. the packers moved swiftly on it so fast that they DIDNT EVEN TELL BRETT. (which i think they should have been the ones to tell brett, not stupid fuck espn)
