I never liked him beyond the year he won it all. And I can't stand all the hype around the guy. He has sucked for years now, and the only thing saving him this time around is the strong ground game. If I see him making another pass beyond the line of scrimmage I'll go nuts. That used to make me happy when I cheered against his teams, but it's unbearable now. They can win in spite of him, but it won't last. The sooner they become the team they are without him, the better.

As a Pack fan, I want Favre gone. I can't wait till he returns to Lambeau. He could've finished his career witht he Pack a few years ago and left with somewhat of a legacy. Now, he's a whore.

packers disrespected him, IMO. he told them he wasnt ready to quit, but they didnt care... their whole planning was to have him mentor rodgers for a little and then retire, and have rodgers take over.. unfortunately for them, favre wasnt ready to go and when he told them that, they pretty much told him 'too bad, rodgers will be starting, and you will be the back up'. can you blame him for going elsewhere?
why should he retire or in this case; be forced into retirement if he's still got it? which it seems he has.

how did you loose $100
it was obvious they were going to win yesterday
Lions are actually showing something while the Skins couldn't score on the Rams
you should consult before you put down money
I bet on the Lions in our pick 'em, wish I could have put some money down

He doesn't have it. Hell, the Packers did him a favor by keeping him in there for so damn long. Rodgers was more than ready and everyone knew it but out of respect for him they allowed him to keep the job instead of developing our young QB. Hell, even the year prior to that, he was playing around with retiring or not retiring. Why not just say, I'm gonna leave the team, instead of doing this entire fiasco?

The Packers did more for Brett Favre than any team would do. Hell, they told him he'd have to compete for the job. What's wrong with that? The guy hadn't won us a super bowl since the mid 90s. How much longer is he gonna live off of that aura?

And does he still have it? Ask Jets fans. He looked terrible last season. He looked his age. And then signing with the Vikings? Brutal.

i'm not really sure how the packers disrespected him when he was the one stringing them alone with his retirement. i can't applaud the packers enough for telling him no when he decided he wasn't ready to retire, after he already retired. it's not like they gave him a week to decide. the retirement talk was over the course of two seasons.

Odds are the Pack brass and Brett had a sit down before they drafted Rodgers... they all discussed the franchises future and they probably all decided that it would be a perfect time to draft a QB and let Brett mentor him for 2 seasons, afterwhich, Brett could retire and the team could move on with Rodgers.
i'm sure they hammered it home that he was supposed to retire and pretty much everyone knew it... they sure had Favre convinced as well... then when it was time, Brett decided he wanted to play again. The Packers brass probably saw this as a neg on their agreement, but c'mon, you cant agree to force a player to retire... and Brett wasnt ready to.
they straight up told him he'd be second string, and i dont see any HOF'er sitting back and taking that order, especially when you're a few yards and TD's away from breaking the biggest 2 QB records in the NFL.
would you retire?
the guy has aged, thats for sure, but he's still better than half of the starting QB's in the league... so why would he want to quit if he knows he still has it, and has the passion to play?
Jets fans can say what they want, but they were damn happy at the beginning of last season when they were winning. They are just talking smack now that they have Sanchez... if they didnt they'd probably be pinning to have Brett back.
I'm sure Minny is happy.... Farve is 10 times better than Jackson.

i actually think the packers stumbled across rodgers. i remember the year he was drafted he was supposed to be top 5 in the draft, but no one needed quarterbacks. when he fell to the packers, they were like 'yes please'.

as for what you're saying about farve....you're making it up, aren't you

The Packers were ready to go another season with Favre before he started dicking them around with retirement talk. Then he announced his retirment, so the Packers did the sensible thing and went ahead with Aaron Rodgers. That's when Favre decided he wanted to come back and wanted to assume the #1 role in Green Bay. That's wrong. I'm glad the Packers' front office didn't give into him.

Rodgers was supposed to be the 1st qb selected that year. If I remember correctly it was between he and Alex Smith. The niners chose Smith and Rodgers fell down on the board. Hell, I was ecstatic that day.

And Jets fans by the end of last season saw he was done. No one really wanted him back (or at least fan wise). And while I agree he's better than Tavaris Jackson, you don't tell the kid all off season long (along with Sage Rosenfels) that you're our guy, you're our guy and then at the 11th hour turn your back on him. Or at least say, you're gonna compete with the job. No, they hand the guy the starting spot without any training camp prep. Be upfront. Say, y'know we're looking to add him, maybe you'll learn from him.

And we were up front with him. If Favre wanted the job, he'd have to earn it. But look at the difference last year. Rodgers was the better QB last season. Why would you have the better player sit? Favre needed to compete. Plain and Simple. If that's disrespect then fine.

I think the Packers saw this is the greatest miracle ever... they knew Brett was winding down his career and they would eventually need to replace him... but they never had the balls to draft a QB or trade for one until Brett was ready to go.
But all of a sudden, the clouds parted and the sky opened up and low and behold; Aaron Rodgers is available.
they had to take the kid... it was the most perfect thing to happen to their franchise in years... it would save them time and energy looking for Brett's replacement.
Now, they could talk to Brett and have him go with their plan. whio cares if he's not ready, he'll have to.... they would make him.
so when brett went against the 'miracle' plan, they parted ways. Packers still came out winners IMO. And unfortunately, Favre got the 'whore' title. and for what? because he wasnt ready to retire. because he wanted to keep playing?
Montana could have retired a 49er. when Young took over, he knew his time in SF was up, so he played for KC and had 2 good seasons. He had 2 good years left in him and he knew it, thats why he never let himself be forced into a retirement he wasnt ready for.... as for brett, maybe its the same thing.

My Packers beat the hell out of the Rams yesterday but damn, Steven Jackson is a beast. If he had some talent around him and a good offensive line he would be challenging AP as top dog.

i heart Steven Jackson...
i actually got a Rams Jackson home jersey for 25 bucks on ebay... probably one of the best NFL jersey's i have.... the gold and blue look great.

As for that sad sack team... they need a new QB, how the hell did Bulger get such a ridiculous contract? he stinks.
and their D is just plain bad.

Potential. He took over for Kurt Warner when he developed fumbleitis for a couple years. Bulger played solid ball then and his weaknesses were shielded by a still talented team. Now he has very little to work with and as such he's expected to make things happen because Steven Jackson can't carry the ball 50 times per game. Why they did not pursue guys like Jeff Garcia or Michael Vick or Matt Cassell I do not know.
