LOL! Excellent imagery (and I’ve been a Favre fan).
I like Brett Favre. But the Pack didn’t make him the bad guy. Favre did that himself. He is nothing but another athletic diva who thinks he is bigger than everyone else.
Each year, for the past several years, Favre would wait to make his decision on retirement while the Packers would wait patiently, looking for the puff of white smoke that would signify Lord Favre’s return. He’s the one who had no regard for the team’s needs, letting the entire organization twist in the wind while he made his decision on his time. He would bring up the retirement issue annually, and then blame it on the media as they discussed it.
This time, he retired. There were rumors that he was coming back, but Favre himself said that they were untrue. Now he comes back again, wanting the Packers to make him the starter again, but they have already acted on his retirement and moved forward, so he and his family act like babies, complaining that the organization has disrespected them, when it is Favre who had no respect for the Packer organization.
He has tarnished his legacy as a Packer, and he only has himself to blame.
I have to eat crow on my last statement…Brett did look like a crybaby to me upon his wanting to return, and am horribly disappointed with the whole situation.I am just glad there is a resolution, and believe it or not, the sun did rise in Wisconsin the day after his trade…[;)]
That’s a regular season for us Jet fans!
Maybe he will change the Jets’ luck. They have never even won an AFC championship so far in the NFL.
Oh you should try watching the regular evening news here in Wisconsin. YOU CAN’T!!! Brett Brett Brett Brett, who flippin cares???!?!?!?! He’s just a man! He’s not God! He’s NOT Vince Lombardi & he’s no Curly Lambeau!!! Enough already!!! Isn’t anything else going on this month? [:(!]
It was nice to go to Mayo Clinic (yes, nice to go to the doctor!!!!) and get away from all the yackety smackety on all the channels. so nice & peaceful!!! [:0]
A Super Bowl win by the Jets gives the Packers their 2009 #1 pick. I can dream, can’t I?
I hadn’t heard that one. I like it.
I suspect the Jets may find Favre high maintenance. Holmgren got a lot out of him but then during the Mike Sherman years Favre was looking like he was going down hill. It took McCarthy a whole year to get Favre back on track. In his press conference he was dismissing next year even though no one asked. So, will he be able to adapt to the Jets this year or will he struggle under a new system? I don’t think his heart is into playing for the Jets. It could be an excruciating year. It is interesting that it was reported that the Packers put a poison pill in the trade that the Jets would have to give up three 1st round draft choices if they in turn traded Favre to the Vikings.
I will give him this though, he is the second best quarterback the Jets have ever had…….
hope to see him lose to the Packers in the Super Bowl.
Super bowl? Come on now. You are giving this all time interceptions leader waaaaay to much credit.

Farve is a clever sob—he will make more from Madison Ave than from the Jets—-stuck in the boondocls all these years Brett will be a
New York darling. Mucho Dinero. Namath had one good game and became Broadway Joe. He still is. Brett will CASH IN !!!!!!!
Jets have spent some $’s on upgrading the O line. With Favre as a threat to throw, should loosen up opposing D’s and give the running game some room…I hope! It’s been 40 yrs. since the B’way Joe guarantee.
Brad…I think the turf is better than what it used to be; however, the expectations are MUCH higher at the jets than they would be at tampa bay simply because of the media market he is in. If the Jets don’t make it to the playoffs Favre will be to blame in the eyes of the ny/nj media.
I heard what sold Brett on the Jets were the parts of Jersey where he could live and hunt as well as Favre believing the Jets had better players. I think he meant offensively.
Paul – I didn’t mean anything negative towards your statement. I just like to look at the bright side of situations.
