  • Breaking News: Packers don't release Favre...Aaron Rodgers (re-)declared starter

    The Packers told Favre they won't release him...they also told him he will come back as the backup.

    Gotta say I LOVE this move by the Packers. Finally A-Rod gets his chance. I don't expect Favre to be traded, but I do expect them to release him eventually.

    I still think Favre will be a Buc.

    Congrats to Wisconsin. Even more congrats to UK haters.

        Totally agree with the descision by the Thompson and McCarthy, as much as i love Favre he cannot decide the way the team goes. A-Rod is our guy and he needs to accept that.

        Fantastic strong policy by us.

          Brian Brohm couldn't hold A-Rod's jock.

            If Favre were trying to steal Brohm's job, Brian would break his legs unlike Aaron Rodgers who weeps in a corner quietly.

              Brian who?

              There's only one quarterback who's clearly the heir apparent to number four.

              I of course am talking about Matt Flynn.

                Very good move by management. Brohm will be a good backup for a few years until he is ready to be traded. I love Favre but he handled this situation terribly.

                  so apparently, according to van susteren in an article i read at the milwaukee urinal sentinel site,

                  favre felt pressured into retiring, because the packers wanted to know BEFORE THE DRAFT. even though they told him then they wanted him back. and he had already retired. wtf. grow up.

                    Seriously. When Mariucci did his interview and was talking about how unlike the two preceding off-seasons the Packers didn't really try to convince Brett to stay enough and that his feelings were hurt. What the ****? You're a grown man, and you're crying because a team that has proven its loyalty to you time and time again doesn't stroke your ego enough to make you come back despite the fact that a city, a state and pretty much the entire footballing world worships you. And then you try to blame your early retirement on said team? Pretty weak. If he actually really wanted to come back and he'd already gone through his tearful retirement and ****, then he should have gone through the right channels, shut the **** up in interviews and just sat down with the Packer brass and A-Rod and figure **** out.

                    Also, I love Favre and I like Mariucci as an analyst, but their relationship really grates on me. It's like Frodo and Samwise's sexually-tense trip to Mordor.

                      is it just me, or does anyone get the feeling that this young packers team is ready to move on and totally rally behind rodgers after more of these stupid ass favre shenanigans?

                      it just seems like they're so sick of him (for the most part) that they're gonna have rodgers' back through anything, since he actually cares about them.

                      maybe i'm smoking dope, though.

                      according to favre's complaints about thompson, it sounds more like he just doesn't like him because thompson didn't let favre run the team. dip****.

                        Matt, I think the only way the Bucs will get Favre will be if he is traded to them before he is released.

                        There are many reasons, other than purely financial ones, for that.

                        1: Favre's former QB coach is in Minnesota now.

                        2: The Vikings appear to be better suited for a championship run than the Bucs. With the exception of their horrible QB situation.

                        3: Several of Favre's former friends and teammates play for the Vikings currently. (Shaper, Ferguson, Longwell, ect.)

                        4: Many Viking fans are Favre fans, so he already has a fan base built up in Minnesota.

                        5: It's very close to his home in Wisconsin.

                        6: Favre doesn't like Tampa Bay.

                        7: The Vikings don't have 34 QB's on their roster already. (Unlike Tampa. )

                          Favre said he doesn't like warm weather and he is full of **** cuz he wants to play for Green Bay. Tampa had many battles with Favre when the Pack/Bucs were in the NFC Central. He never complained in the past. Otherwise, show me where he said he doesnt like Tampa.

                          Also, all the QBs on the roster don't threaten Favre at all. Tampa will have backups of McCown, Josh Johnson, and Brian Griese. This isn't a reason for Favre to not come to Tampa.

                            Okay, fair enough, but he did say he doesn't like the weather in Tampa, which doesn't bode well.

                            Either way, you do agree with my earlier points that indicate that Favre is more likely to choose the Vikings if/when the Packers cut him, right?

                              I think those statements are rather absured. Were the Giants in a good position for a championship last year? No.

                              I bet most teams would gladly accept Favre and become fans for him. Minnesota isn't any different.

                              It doesn't matter if Tampa has 527 QB's on their roster, Favre would be signed/traded for to start.
