Brett is a back up.

Recommended Posts

I just saw that that packers would love to have him back. But there is one thing he must back up the starting QB. This is no lie.

I heard it ticked him off so he asked to be released so he could go to whatever team he wanted... *shrug*

I love and respect the guy but he should stayed retired, he doesn't have anything else to prove...

I cant agree with you more. I was ready to move as soon as he said he was done. The stuff hes pulling now is making me lose respect for him more.

I don't understand why people get so upset with him changing his mind.  I'm not a Favre lover or hater.  He is just another guy to me so I can be biased.

The way I see it football is the only job the guy ever had and he's freaking retiring in his 40's.  Thats a pretty young retirement age.  I hear of people in their 60's retiring getting bored and going back to work.  If he wants to come back thats his business.  If Green Bay doesn't want him or has already moved on, release him.  Thats their business.

I hate the fact he wants back now...after juggling the thought of him retiring.I kind of would like to see him on a coaching staff.

A guy in his 40's playing against some of the youngest stronger young guys his chance of getting hurt is greater.

Guys like him need the lime-light to stroke their enormous ego's. He doesn't care that he put the Packers behind the eight-ball with this childish antic.

He is one of the greatest quarterback that ever played the game but like most athletes , it's all about me.

I hope Green Bay does what's right for their team and does not cave in to this man-child.

Funny, I never percieved him as that kind of player.

As a Favre fan, I'm on the fence about this. On one hand I think he has been the man in GB for so long and can still play and be productive so if he wants to come back, bring it on.

On the other hand, I think he should make a solid decision and stick to it. He's been back and forth the past couple years and its put a strain on the GB management with draft picks, Aaron Rodgers, the fans and everything else.

If they do give him a release to play somewhere else, I bet that release will be loaded with conditions that won't let him QB for anyone in the NFC Central and possibly not any team that may be a threat to win the SB. If he doesn't agree to the terms of release (if release is offered), he might be holding a clipboard and calling plays in to Rodgers.

I hate to admit it, but Favre cannot play in the cold anymore; his body just won't do it.  This was evident in several games last year.  A Wisconsin team cannot have a QB that flubs in the cold...it's always freaking cold.

Rodgers has been warming up in the bull pen for a long time.  If Favre wants to be released, so be it.  In my opinion Rodgers has, to the most extent, proved himself.  He's level headed, agile can think on his feet.  And he can scramble with the best.

He's had a great mentor and no one can take that from Favre, but Rodgers deserves his shot now.  He's paid his dues.

Sorry Brett.  Your one of the best, if not the best QB ever, no one can take that from you.  Let it go!

Since the day Brett announced his retirement, I've really liked the way Rodgers has handled this. His comments are great, a little cocky and surly. He really has been a straight-shooter and told it as it is. Basically he's said 'look, I'm not Brett, never will be Brett, I'm Aaron Rodgers and I'm going to do things my way.' I'm diggin' it.

You are correct, he has paid his dues.  I mean we've had an offseason retire/not retire bunch of drama for several seasons now, not that that bothers me, but I'm sure it wasn't paricularily pleasant for Rodgers.

This particular situation never presented itself before.

You get paid that or make that kind of money for that long and you'll have an ego that needs to be stroked too!

I don't think Brett can help another team at this stage of his career, but he knows the players that surrounds him in Green Bay, and chemistry goes along ways in team sports.

If my memory serves me correct,  Mr. Rodgers has had two season ending injuries thus far in the pros.  Boith scrambling in the pocket!!!!   He's waited for awhile, but he hasn't proven anything yet,

When has Rodgers proved he could play in the cold????  For a season??

The bottom line is the Brett announced his retirement FOR SURE and stated in no uncertain terms that this was the end.

At that point, Green Bay had to make plans to move forward, and to undercut Rogers at this point would be extremely detrimental to team moral and would kill Rogers confidence at this point.

Imagine Aaron Rogers as a starter with "the legendary" Brett Favre standing on the sidelines every game.... The first time Rogers had a bad game, the crown would be chanting "Favre...Favre...Favre.." This would be unacceptable.

I also greatly respect Favre and this Green Bay should release him. If he wants to play at this point, he should be allowed to play. He has payed his dues.

I understand the Coaches decision but also understand Favre's.

I read that packer fans are sitting out side of lambeau every sunday protesting him to be QB if he comes back. Then today brett said he didn't feel welcomed in Green Bay. Well I wonder why.

Tip-  Do you mean pro-Favre or anti-Favre protesters?  I ask because they've had pro-Favre rallies as far south as State Fair Park.

Matt-  I never said Rodgers can play in the cold, I just said Favre can't.  I've watched almost every single game he has ever played at the pro level; he simply can't get it done in the bitter cold anymore.  

I do agree with you on Rodgers and the injury bug.  I'm very concerned about that.  But hey, we've been spoiled with Favre and his ironman streak.  If Rodgers goes down, we'll finally know what it feels like to have the Pack's starter miss a game.  I'm glad they drafted Brian Brohm just in case.

He's back up huh? Well tell him to sit back down!

Had enough of the Brett Farve lovefest whenever the Packers are doing good. He's a good guy and all, but when he's in the playoffs, or close, sports announcers talk about Brett like they want to date him. :P

I've also had enough of the "will he retire" frenzy at the end of every season.

He's one of the greats, for sure, but I think its time for him to be put to pasture.

if he has to be a back up i dont think he will come back at all. If they dont play him I think they should just go ahead and release him. Because the greatest QB since Joe Montana deserves to play as long as he wants to

Not very many teams or individuals can play in extreme cold conditions.   You don't ever get used to that and the pounding that comes with the cold on Sundays.

     I always say proof is in the pudding.    

Say what you want over the past 3-4 seasons, talent stunk, RB position has been injury plagued for his past 4-5 seasons putting the pressure on Brett to do what he did when he came into the league, be a gunslinger.   And his receiving core wasn't the best surrounding him either.  Key losses seasons past with Walker leaving and such.

   I think being one game short of the Super Bowl speaks for what Bret did last year.    By the way, how do you judge someone?

   From past results!   Last years results showed he can still play.

Lots of the great QB moved on to finish their careers.   Unitas, Namath, Montana all finished elsewhere.
