I just heard on ESPN news, from the mouth of Al Harris, that Favre has the itch to come back and he is seriously considering it. Is this just anothing rumor to stir things up? Is it good or bad for the team? Let me know what you guys think.

Oh yeah, having Favre on your team is a damn good thing.

Chris Mortenson is coming on ESPNEWS soon with breaking news and new details about this. Right now they are talking about how Brett may want to return but the organization does not want to open door, and the uproar that would cause with the fans.

ESPN's Chris Mortensen reports that Brett Favre has told coach Mike McCarthy that he has thought about playing this year.
This follows up a Mike Lombardi blog post along the same lines. The comeback talk is reportedly only in preliminary stages, but Favre's family is encouraging him to play. Cornerback Al Harris says Favre told him he still "has the itch" to play. This situation could turn thorny. The Packers own Favre's rights, but we'd guess that the front office would simply rather move forward with Aaron Rodgers. The coaching staff may lean more towards Favre.


Former NFL personnel man Mike Lombardi writes in his blog that one Packers player told him Brett Favre is giving "real consideration" to making a return.
Lombardi, a 20-year veteran executive, recently worked in the Raiders' and Broncos' front offices, writes for SI.com and started a blog a few months back. He doesn't have the same standards as bigger news sources, but undoubtedly has connections. The Packer told Lombardi that Favre would consider returning with another team if Green Bay won't take him back. Favre was recently placed on the reserve/retired list, however, and the Packers own his rights.

If they let Favre become a FA I'll just F'n snap. AR will probably be good, but we don't know that for sure, or if he can even last an entire season. But if the front office decides that they don't want him back, it'll be pretty bad. Pretty stupid.

man i love brett and all. and i want him to play. but this is getting somewhat out of control. i think that brett is the only one that could get away with this in pro sports today. i am definitely torn on this. but i am a little taken back by a-rods lastest comments about packer fans as well. if favre comes back and rodgers decides to leave. we have brohm waiting to be groomed i guess

good point servais. isnt he on the reserve retired list ?? basically it is just a reinstatement.

I hope it's not true. I'd love to see him play but don't want to see what this would do to his reputation, the media will turn on him.

as do i beast. maybe this has been the plan the whole time i guess. he hate off season workouts and stuff. training camp is just around the corner. the timing is almost mind boggling. could this be why brohm was drafted. to take over after rodgers leaves town. i dont know. but i agree with you totally. i want answers and if it is a "yes" i want a commitment for "x" number of years

im getting really pissed at favre!

the media was about to turn on him anyway and halfway already has...and now hes throwing this crap around....im with the administration on this....he said hes retired, we are already planning on the start of the rodgers era and its bull that we have to do this trip again

another question i have is....whats aaron gonna say about this? hes waited patiently when favre has been on the fence, now when he jumped to the other side aaron FINALLY has his chance, and what hes gonna sit again? id be willing to bet that if brett comes back, and if the pack actually take him back, aaron is gonna demand a trade and we would lose TWO good quarterbacks in a year or whatever when brett really retires

stupid stupid stupid....

wwfd1220
07-02-2008, 04:57 PM
remember .... mike m. chose another q.b. over rodgers for a reason unknown to anyone but him. if favre comes back. he will have brohm who he selected taking over. assuming of course this is not all bull****

how do you know rodgers is going to be good ??? alot of people on this forum have a huge ? mark at our q.b. position this year. i dont know that he will be good. nor do i know that he will be bad. with favre we know what we have. thats my opinion anyways

Personally I dont care what Aaron Rodgers thinks about Favre coming back, he better not play the victim role, WE gave a chance to his butt when he was all embarrassed and fell almost out of the first round in the draft when he was expected to go top 10, so as far as I'm concerned he is in our debt..Its could end up being the beef kind of like Montana and Young, but why dont he study how that situation played out if he is so cocky and confident Young eventually got his chance and won his super bowl...not to bad of a wait after all

Ryan Diesel can never argue any points with me and just resorts to accusing me of being a Vikings fan because I'm not down on my knees washing Favre's balls with every post.

Fact is we all saw Favre's playoff performances over the last decade and he has a terrible QB rating in those games. Make all the excuses you want. You can all get hyped over maybe getting to another second playoff game and losing if you want to but I'd prefer to go with the future guy and hope he can actually get us to the Super Bowl someday. Favre is not bigger than the Green Bay Packers.

But yeah, I must be a Vikings fan because I actually want the team to succeed.

I get what your saying and I personally thought Favre played a fantastic game against the G-Men, If Harris wouldnt have gotten melted so bad we would have won, Favre scored every time we had to except the final drive, and what happened to the running in that game? I think we should have fed Grant alot more

Ryan Diesel
07-02-2008, 05:23 PM
This coming from the guy who types like he's in middle school. John Elway and Brett Favre are nothing alike.

Your right, Elway lost 3 Fn SB's and who knows how many years in the playoffs. Did you not watch football in the 80's and 90's?? He had knowitalls like yourself crying for Bubby Brister before he went on to win two in a row. Your out of your element dude. Hopefully you'll just go away like those people did when we win the SB with Favre this year. Have fun cheering against us because you'd rather be right than see Favre win another.

It's true about Harris and Grant but the fact is the picks Favre hurled at the end were what cost us the game and they were totally unnecessary, especially the last one. Had he just hit his checkdown instead of throwing it in to double coverage it would have been fine.

That's hilarious. I'd rather be right than see Favre win another?

More like you'd rather be right about Rodgers sucking than see him succeed. You and twelvepack. Just look at my sig. You accuse me of not being a Packer fan when in reality you two are the ones that are not supporting our quarterback unless it's Brett Favre. That's not what a fan does.

I'll root for Favre if he comes back but won't be shocked if he throws another season ending pick in overtime.

All of that is true, but you cannot deny that the guy has not been good overall in the playoffs this decade. He has had some good games, but overall has been a bad playoff QB and it showed in overtime in that game.

I think it looked like an obvious slip of the ball in the -5 degree temp, but its not about arguing about this or that, Favre had a GREAT year and Joe Montana could have even had a couple bad throw in that temp

Ryan Diesel
07-02-2008, 05:28 PM
Favre was not the reason we lost, we never should have been in overtime anyway, your clueless if you think otherwise. If Favre, or any QB for that matter has to throw 80% of the time against a SB winning defense lol, there is going to be a pick or two in there, especially if you go into overtime. We failed to run the ball, we ran like 15 times all game or something ridiculous. Dude said Favre can't play in the playoffs anymore, are you kidding me?? Did you sleep through the game against Seattle? Do you think Rodgers would have done better against the Defense that whooped on the undefeated Patriots?? Do you think we'd do better NEXT year with Rodgers over Favre??

He has been subpar in the playoffs but he still gives the Pack the best chance to win right now and this team is built to win right now.

I am skeptical that Rodgers can take this team to the playoffs much less the Super Bowl.

If you can't just argue points without acting like a little kid and calling people stupid or accusing them of being Viking fans then why are you even here?

Oh and look, someone's making a post full of excuses for Favre. What else is new?

Talk about the defense and Ryan Grant and all this crap, the bottom line is Favre threw the picks to let the Giants get into position to kick a field goal on us and win. He did the same thing in Eagles game back in 2003.

Rtardz
07-02-2008, 05:32 PM
I have no problem with him coming back. I was past it and ready to move on with the Rodgers era, but Favre is still a known sure thing ability wise and Rodgers isnt. And you only get one shot at a career.

There's only one way to find out if he can, and sooner or later we will have to find out if the next guy can do the job. We can't ask Favre to play forever, and if Favre comes back, Rodgers leaves. We have to groom another guy. So then what, if Favre comes back for one year and then retires again? We have to wait another 2-3 years for Brohm to be ready? What if he sucks? Then how long are we set back for?

You better hope we win a Super Bowl in that one year of Favre or else it's a complete waste that sets us back at QB.

07-02-2008, 05:35 PM
And he also threw the TD's that got us there. lol Oh your going to bring up the Eagles game?? Only a queen would. Yeah 4th and 26 was totally Favres fault huh. Your not gonna win em all, ask Tom Brady. Like I said, Elway lost more big games than Favre before he won two in a row. It's pretty ignorant to say that Favre isn't good in the playoffs anymore.

Why would Rodgers leave? If he does who cares. We are taking a step back regardless of who plays quarterback next. Personally I think Brohm is going to beat him out anyways.

I want to win now. If Favre isn't playing next year the Packers are wasting a great opportunity with a talented team.

Not really since servais just admitted as much. Check the numbers.

Seriously, you need to grow up. Not every Packer fan worships Favre as much as you do, some of us realize that life goes on when he retires. That doesn't make us Viking fans and you're baiting anyway.

Ryan Diesel
07-02-2008, 05:37 PM
Obviously the team knows Rodgers isn't the long term answer anyway, thats why they drafted Brohm. Rodgers is going to be a FA soon, so even if he plays good, he'll probably jet on us.

Sorry to jump in the conversation, but jwdaly07, yes Favre was not Mr. Clutch in the playoffs in the past few seasons, but u really should considered the teams that Favre was on for this decade. The early years of the decade, our whole team wasn't all that great, especially our defense was crap. Favre was really only surrounded by a good team (somewhat complete on both sides) in the playoffs once, which was last season. Look at Peyton Manning, he had a great offense for so long, but did crap in the playoffs against the Patriots, and his defense stank, so using ur mentality why didn't they just try using another QB. Look how he won the SB 2 years back bcuz he had a more complete team.

So let's not put it all on Favre.

jwdaly07
07-02-2008, 05:39 PM
Yes his time has come and gone considering he had a MVP season last year....:rolleyes:

His time has come and gone because he said "my career is over" and Aaron Rodgers has been preparing to play for months now. So yeah, his time is gone and the organization will not let him back, like it or not.

The team drafted Brohm because they didn't have a backup and didn't want Daunte Culpepper's washed up *** as their backup.

jwdaly07
07-02-2008, 05:41 PM
It's all a moot point because there's zero chance Favre is starting for us week 1 unless Rodgers gets hurt before then. TT and McCarthy will not send Rodgers back to the bench.

I don't understand how it is Favre Hero worship by us because we want him back. The guy is a hall of famer and one of the greats. Plus he is still a top 5 QB in the NFL. The Packers were a couple plays away from the Super Bowl with him. Lets try again. I don't understand how him coming back could be anything but positive.

Oh and look, someone's making a post full of excuses for Favre. What else is new?

Talk about the defense and Ryan Grant and all this crap, the bottom line is Favre threw the picks to let the Giants get into position to kick a field goal on us and win. He did the same thing in Eagles game back in 2003.

Normally I'm with you on your posts, but I think you're taking this one a little too far to try to prove your point with Ryan D. You can't put all those playoff losses directly on Favres shoulders, I get what your saying but I think you've said a little too much and now you find yourself defending prior comments hence making you not look like the fan I know you are. I know you're a Packer fan but I can see how someone new to PSD or just an ignorant packerfan could think otherwise. Just an outsiders opinion.

I wish he would stay retired, but if he truly does want to come back I would be happy to have him be our QB.

if fvare comes back. he starts week one. why wouldnt he start week one, he has been leading this team for 16 years. i think he has a grasp on the offense. i am sure he can get in shape in a month and a half. maybe he has been working out with a trainer, who knows. if favre comes back. he will be the starter. and if tt does not let him back, or releases him. he better hope rodgers has a very good year. or he will be run out of town.

I can't imagine the Packers reinstating him and then trading him. I think they would just let him go by releasing him from his contract. If Ted Thompson wants to villified then he certainly should trade him. If they release him atleast they let him decide where he wants to go. They owe him that much. He was pretty instrumental in Ted and Mike's big contract extension. Without Brett those guys might be polishing their resumes right now.

you know what if he wants to come back great. if not I`ll move on. its not gonna tear up my world either way, I support the Packers and whoever is at the helm. Do I feel Favre gives a a better chance? Of course. Do I think its a little unfair to Rodgers? Yea, but you know what Brett has earned this right, God bless someone having a hard time giving a game they love to play and not love to make money at. I wish more players were in it for the game than the money like Brett is. But there is no sense in getting in arguments and belittling fellow Packer fans who we are supposed to walk side by side with. Believe me other teams are gonna be attacking us enough how about saving some of that energy to argue back with them.

WOW!! This could get really messy. I really would love Favre to come back, however, this is going to cause a rift in the fans and the coachs/front office (mostly TT). I've loved Favre since I was a kid, but I don't know if it would be worth it. The team may not perform like they did last year, we have a very tough schedule and teams will be gunning for us. But I really do think Favre gives us the best chance to win now.

THIS IS WHAT SCARES ME...... TT would most likely shop Brett or release him.. This is something straight out of my worst nightmare and is proof that Thompson is an incompetent fool. It seems to me Rodgers may have some animosity towards fans and possibly even the team itself.

This is a far worse thing than it seems, unfortunately.

It's Favre hero worship when it comes from a guy like Ryan Diesel who bashes Rodgers because he's not Brett Favre. How are you a Packer fan if you only will support one quarterback? You're not, you're a Brett Favre fan.

I have never bashed Rodgers in any way other than saying that he's not as good as Favre. I've never said he wasn't good. I might have kinda bashed his haircut once, but thats pretty much it. Don't twist my words with something someone else said.

then the whole team can rally behind him, they can play their hearts out for him, and the admin can tell aaron "hey man, one more year....thats it....then the team is yours"

its a win win because it would give us the best chance to win next year, without sacrificing the future franchise qb in rodgers

"Brett's a high-quality person and he's not going to push it that far. He'll do the right thing [and stay retired]," ESPN.com quoted a team source as saying. "This was almost predictable, the idea that Brett would get the itch to play as we get closer to the season."

Let the greatest player to ever wear your uniform go when he can still perform at a high level. (see 2007 season) Take a chance on him competing against you and quite possibly on a division rivals team. You piss the fans off and set yourself up to look like a fool.

One because I just want the team to move on since we will have to sooner or later, two because I don't want to hear all the media bull**** about him coming back or being selfish or whatever, and three because I believe Rodgers will be a great replacement.

If he comes back, obviously I'll root for him as hard as anyone else. I just hope he doesn't.

I know he doesn't care. It's in his best interest though to stay retired. He's not going to be the same. He's probably going be out of shape and there is a greater chance that something could happen to him.

hey wis, not to bust your nuts or anything, but scott favre did say in his interview with tmj 4, that brett has been working with a personal trainer all summer long. so you can throw out that being out of shape deal. what weird thing though. his interview with letterman, and now this.

Sounds to me like you just don't want him to stumble. You know Brett ain't throwing back beers and sitting around on his couch all day. He could easily get into football shape with the time we still have left before the season. If your worried about Rodgers I can understand that. However we did draft a couple of QBs. Brett coming back isn't a bad thing. I really don't think that we will be back in the NFC Championship game in Rodgers first year. We have a much better shot at it with Favre.

I really agree with all that. I don't want him to be that kind of player that never lets go. He is the hero in GB. If he moves on to another team it just wouldn't seem the same.

why would he be out of shape all of a sudden?

I think a better question would be why wouldn't he be. He hasn't done anything for how long now? At his age his body isn't going to want to move as well and he'll get out of shape faster.

Favre isn't coming back with the Packers I already know that. Do I want him to go to another team and possible help them? Absolutely not. You'd be crazy to think that I want Favre to help out another team. Is it best for him to come back? I don't think so. Do I think he misses the game and wants to come back? Yes. Am I worried that Rodgers might stumble on his face? Who isn't, but I do know if Rodgers did stumble and come out to be a bust we wouldn't be calling Favre to come play again for us. Do I think we have a better chance with Favre? Thats a ridiculous question because he isn't coming back with the Packers. I think I have spread my opinion and don't need to alaborate on it any further.

This offseason probably hasn't been any different than last offseason. Favre has never been a big workout guy and frankly he doesn't have to be. He can certainly get in shape for the upcoming season in the next two months. There is no doubt about that.

I dont know the stats off the top but im pretty sure Brohm had more than 1 good year, I think he finished with most yard in Louisville history with like over 11,000..not sure somebody could look it up but bottom line more than just one good year

WOW!! This could get really messy. I really would love Favre to come back, however, this is going to cause a rift in the fans and the coachs/front office (mostly TT). I've loved Favre since I was a kid, but I don't know if it would be worth it. The team may not perform like they did last year, we have a very tough schedule and teams will be gunning for us. But I really do think Favre gives us the best chance to win now.

THIS IS WHAT SCARES ME...... TT would most likely shop Brett or release him.. This is something straight out of my worst nightmare and is proof that Thompson is an incompetent fool. It seems to me Rodgers may have some animosity towards fans and possibly even the team itself.

This is a far worse thing than it seems, unfortunately.

Ok, so I seem to remember Brett thinking TT and MM didnt want him to come back and wanted to move forward with Rodgers.. So do you think this whole retirement deal was his way of testing them?? So he could get out of his contract to play for another team?? you know a team with a GM that actually wanted him around, who wasnt only obsessed with his own players starting?? IDK, i hope this isnt true but its just a thought.

Well, any fan of any team is allowed here and it doesn't really seem like he is trying to bait or anything like that. His team plays us 2 times a year so i think Favre possibly returning affects him.

I'm not completely sure how i feel about the whole situation. There is a part of me that loves to watch him play every week but it seems like that part is in the minority. I feel like it could hurt Favre if he decided to un-retire. At this point i don't know how big of a deal this is because i'm sure he has had the itch since he retired.

But i cannot see him ever going to the Vikes!

No I was informed by a friend that lives in Bristol, When I can get proof of this, he said that the Source closest to both Favre and the Packers was Al Harris. He was said to be in the studios at the time of this rumor. After hearing that from a friend that I have known since grade school, I really think this is a Smoke screen. Buss Cook wants it, Al Harris wants it, Green Bay doesnt want this.

Yeah, i think it would be kind of the same feeling if he somehow ended up with the Bears. They are probably the 2 best possible situations outside of Green Bay for him, but also the 2 teams that i don't want to see him play for. They are our rivals and it would just be so weird. I think i would have to kind of hate Favre...in a way

I like the idea of Brett coming back to the Packers. The Packers are interested in Jason Taylor and he said he wouldn't be interested in a trade to the Packers if Favre wasn't on the team. I was kind of wandering if Jason and Brett had a conversation together about coming out of retirement so he could go be traded to a playoff ready team. + I don't like the comments that Aaron Rodgers made in that article about Green Bay and it's fans when he hasn't even played a whole fricken game yet, he should just shut his mouth and let this play out because he is only damaging himself because all qb's that follow legends are going to be compared by the fans plus the media.

its funny how you clap and laugh and agree when someone says Brett needs to shut up and go away. but then you seriously ask if the Bears have a shot at landing him? This goes to prove every fan that is not of Green Bay only hates him because they never had him.

07-03-2008, 08:02 AM
This may have been anticipated by the Packers' front office all along. There may be a very good reason why the team opted to draft a solid prospect QB in the draft rather than signing a veteran backup. I know a million dollar offer was made to Culpepper, but who really thinks Duante would have made 53 man roster? He would have been as expendable as Matt Flynn is now. Just a thought.

Mziolkow

The bears would be a terrible fit for Favre. Their offensive line is awful(even with Chris W) and he would get destroyed by it. They have a rookie running backs and the biggest bunch of scrub *** recievers i have ever seen collected on a single team. Brandon Lloyd? What a joke...


The vikes would make alot of sense though, which scares me

We just play this waiting game every year and like it or not it hurts the team. The team (players, coaches, etc) have moved on and now view Arod as the QB IMO. A part of me wants him to come back for just 1 more year because we are legit SB contenders, but how much longer can we do this to Rodgers? What if he wants out if Brett comes back and then Favre is gone after this year anyway? And Brohm would/will not be ready to start the season after the next.

One, Rodgers is under contract through next year. At which point he is a restricted free agent afterwards. Meaning we can put a tender on him of a 1st and a 3rd. Nobody is signing him for that. If they do then you go with Brohm. Not sure how you are so sure that he won't be ready next year. I have no problem with that. If Rodgers does then look to trade him. This is not the minor leagues where we are developing players for down the road. The Packers were close to winning the whole thing last year. Favre gives us that same chance this year. Obviously he rushed the decision and is having second thoughts. Pretty sure the rest of this team can adjust to him coming back in the fold. He has only been doing this stuff for about two decades.

If he does come back he needs to say this is it....Then every team and city he goes to can have their farewell. It works better that way IMO. I guess the Packers could always just release him, watch the Vikings sign him and we can have a return of Favre/Packer jersey retiring in the same game opening night. That would be a lot of fun if you like watching your favorite organization be embarrassed.
