  • Lombardi thinks Favre to Tampa

    Even though I hated him on NFL Network for Draft coverage (for obvious reasons), Mike Lombardi (who has worked with GM Bruce Allen before) predicts Favre to be a Buc when all is said and done.

    I really just don't see any other scenario where Favre is not starting Week 1 for Tampa if he doesn't retire.

      I'm still holding on to hope that Favre stays retired. Am I deluding myself? Most definitely

        He needs an offense similar to GB, no way he can learn a new system

        if Favre joins TB, I'll have to watch his argument with Sapp on sportscenter for a week

          Um, Jon Gruden runs one of the most pure west coast schemes in the NFL. His scheme is actually great for Favre.

              I agree. Everyone wanted MJ to retire, but he didn't.

                  Tampa Bay may not be to high on Favre's list

                  http://blogs.tampabay.com/bucs/2008/...bay-may-n.html

                  Brett Favre is planning to play in 2008 and no longer feels welcome in Green Bay.

                  But if he is able to gain his release or be traded from the Packers, the Bucs may not be very high on Favre's list of new teams.

                  Favre has recently told sources close to him that Tampa Bay was 'too hot,' and that he prefers to play and practice in cooler weather. That sounds rather strange from a guy who grew up and spends his summers in Mississippi.

                  There also is another problem. The Bucs playbook under Jon Gruden may be unrecognizable to him.

                  Gruden is a disciple of the west coast offense and the principles certainly still apply. But he has evolved his system during 10 NFL seasons and the terminology is voluminous.

                  Former Raiders quarterback Rich Gannon, who played under Gruden as recently as 2001, was doing a Bucs game for CBS and sat in a couple quarterback meetings. He has commented that the offense was unrecognizable to him.

                  What would that mean to Favre? Could the Bucs, after spending an off-season refining the offense in the second year with Jeff Garcia under center, adapt the system to Favre? Could the Bucs players adapt that quickly to their new quarterback?

                  While some teams in the NFL have indicated they have no interest in Favre (the Jets and Ravens, to name a couple), the Bucs have had no comment on the subject. That's not unusual since talking about interest in a player under contract to another team can be considered tampering.

                  But this is not fantasy football. It's likely there are many discussions about Favre taking place among the Bucs front office and coaching staff. Again, Gruden has said many times how much he admires Favre. Aside from maybe Peyton Manning and Tom Brady, there's probably not another quarterback he respects more.

                  But the Bucs report to training camp in 10 days. Like the Packers, they have to move forward.

                  Jeff Garcia will be taking the first snap at Disney's Wide World of Sports. The Packers have said they will not release Favre. It's clear after listening to Favre on Fox News Monday night, he won't return as a backup to Aaron Rodgers.

                  That means Favre would have to be traded and the Packers have asked him for a list of acceptable teams. An agreement for compensation, in terms of draft picks, etc., would have to be reached with the Packers.

                  That's a lot of ground that would have to be covered in 10 days. And if the Bucs were inclined to strike a deal for Favre, it's unlikely Jeff Garcia would want to remain as a backup, so he would have to be traded or released.

                  It's been made clear to Favre they don't want him to be their starting quarterback this year in Green Bay. That said, Favre has not named another team he would like to play for.

                  But the story is going to remain as hot as a summer day in Tampa Bay.

                    Uhhh..... Yea. Disagree. The only team Favre would want to go to other than Minnesota (Packers will NEVER let that happen) would be a contender. TB would be a contender with Favre, most other teams that need a QB aren't contenders. The Packers won't release Favre, therefore he will have to be traded. The Packers WOULD trade him to Tampa Bay. Therefore Matt is absolutely right. And by the way, Sharper said that as to not bad mouth his teammate. It is no secret Jackson sucked ass last year. Behind that offensive line with that good of RB, facing cover 3 defensive schemes most of the time, it would be hard not to succeed. Let me quote Steve Young after Sunday Night game last year vs. Chicago. "If I could face a cover 3 as often as Jackson, I would come out of retirement right now. That kind of coverage is what Quarterbacks dream of." That's coming from a QB, who, might I add, has a pretty stellar reputation. I think he understands the position better than most. So do us a favor and just give it up on Jackson until he proves he's got what it takes.

                      Carolina isn't reportedly interested.
                      Baltimore isn't reportedly interested.
                      Tampa isn't (by one source) reportedly interested.

                      Green Bay won't let Favre go to the NFC North.

                      Kind of hard to believe that a lot of teams in the NFL aren't interested in one of the 10-15 best QBs of all-time (on my list), threw for 4155 yards last season, 28 TDs, and 66.5% completions.

                      I'm not buying it. I think Tampa is trying to lower the interest in Favre early (if this report is true) to drive down the price of that draft pick.

                      Also, saying Tampa's playbook is voluminous...what NFL playbook isn't? That's a bad point to make.

                          Nobody wants this diva on their team to come in there and screw up chemistry.

                          I'm sure the Dolphins will take him....Oh wait that will be to hot.

                          What a pussy. All he cares about is himself.

                          I used to have a tad bit of respect for the guy but now I have none.

                            I agree with IVF to an extent. Favre is really seeming childish, a part of me thinks he is doing this for the attention...but IVF don't ****ing kid yourself. You're a green bay hater. At least admit it. Nothing wrong with it just saying ur heavily biased.

                            Anyways, I'd still take Favre on Tampa. He does give us a different dimension in the passing game vertically.

                              Well obviously I'm a Green Bay hater. All Viking fans should be GB haters, and Favre haters.

                              A few of the Vikings have already said they don't want Favre on this team and neither do I. And apparently multiple NFL teams don't either.

                              Don't forget Favre still hasn't ruled out staying retired...Hopefully he does.
