Jacob you forget Moss was a FA last year and Ted Thompson didn't do anything thus pissing off Brett and in my belief caused Brett to say he is retiring.



lets not make this a favre thread -_-

And the initial FA year he did go for moss. I'm not sure why he didnt the second year, im sure his price went way up, due to him coming off a great year with the pats as to prior he was coming off a shitty year with oakland, much like TO is coming off not so much a bad year with dallas but, a bad rep, causing his price to lower

Which initial FA year? He wasn't a FA when New England traded for him, was he? Or was he in the last year of his deal? I don't remember.

I can't leave without saying thanks to Ron Wolf and Mike Holmgren for giving me a chance when no one else would. I'd like to thank Mike McCarthy and Ted Thompson, Bob Harlan, Tom Clements my recent quarterback coach, Darrell Bevell. Mike was my quarterback coach in '99. Andy Reid, Marty, ... Steve Mariucci, Mike Sherman, Ray Rhodes, Tom Rossley, and I could go through so many different names and players and seasons.




I think last year and the year before I was tired and it took awhile but I came back. Something told me this time not to come back. It took awhile once again. Once again, I wondered if it was the right decision. But I think in my situation, and I had this conversation with Mike and Ted, that it's a unique situation in that at 17 years I had one of the better years in my career, the team had a great year, everything seems to be going great, the team wants me back, I still can play, for the most part everyone would think I would be back, would want me back.




And Brett Favre got hard to live up to. And I found myself during games at times, tough situation, people always kind of made this joke or other guys on the team, even Mike at times would turn to me and say, 'All right Brett. This is where you're at your best. Pull us out.' I'm thinking, 'Uh! ... ' Now I wouldn't do that, but I'm thinking that.





Of course there's always this quote too...

I know there's been comments and issues in the press lately about why I'm leaving, whether or not the Packers did enough, whether or not Ted and Mike tried to convince me to stay. None of those things have anything to do with me retiring, and that's from the heart.





So, with your comment you're calling Brett a... liar?

He was in his last year of his contract when the Pats traded for him when it was rumored he was coming to Green Bay. Last year he was a FA and as far as him saying he didnt want to come here i don't remember. But i know Ted Thompson made no effort in going after him, but your right Jones and Martin are far better than Moss 😛
Just Imagine this for the next 6-9 years. What a ride it will be 🙂 (PS, Zero should charge for this)

Don't put words into my mouth.

No where did I say Martin and Jones were better than Moss. I simply mentioned our WR roster held over from the prior year as a reason to NOT get into a bidding war with whomever for Moss.

Moss said he wanted to stay a Patriot.
