Wow, this is unbelievable... I never thought I would ever see Brett in a uni other than the Packers.

I cant believe this!!! They said that Favre doesnt think that anyone in the Packers organization wants him back. Even though I think its true, hopefully MM or TT comes out and says that they want him back and he changes his mind!!! I can hope....right??

A sad day, but a necessary one. Green Bay needs to give Rodgers a chance, he's too talented not to, and can't carry Favre, Brohm, Rodgers, and Flynn. Also can't go through this every ****ing year. But if Favre wants to play, he has that right, he has at least earned that much. No reason this needs to be a messy thing either, give him 2 weeks to try to find a trade for himself, and if he can't just cut him.

Yea but you saw what Harris did to Peterson last, wait till this year..He's gonna wake up out of his coma wearing a LA Vikings uni

Please don't act like that hit was some sort of indictment against Peterson.

Injuries happen.....and if you think Adrian is on the receiving end of vicious hits more often than he gives them, you need to spend some more time in the video room.

If he ever happened to become a Viking, I'd have to say I wouldn't cry my eyes out. I won't run out and buy a Favre jersey, but I won't burn one in downtown Minneapolis, either.

If this actually happens, I think TT's fate has been sealed. He will always be remembered as "the one who wouldnt take back Favre". That will be his "legacy" in Green Bay. I hope he gets run out of town when he gets back from "vacation."

isnt the offense already committed to rodgers though? its honestly time for favre to move on..i believe he gave you guys the shaft in telling you he wanted to come back this late...he should have said something before you drafted brohm

newdude
07-11-2008, 03:58 PM
If they decide not to release him and bring him back, the reason is they are scared to be known as the ones who ran Favre out of town, as someone has mentioned.

No way he gets released, I see us getting at least a 6 or 7th round pick from tha jets or ravens

Brendan
07-11-2008, 03:59 PM
Yeah he would, IF HE IS STARTING. he doesnt want to sit on the bench. And i really really think that they have moved on to Aaron Rodgers in the FO.

Do they REALLY think that?

(They = Packers execs.)

Asoriano12

you guys have moved on, rodgers is your qb and favre just cant come in and take it back. IMO it was an unprofessional move on favre

They just said on NFL Live that there has been no response from the Packers.

Brendan
07-11-2008, 04:04 PM
Brett Favre asked his agent to send a letter to the Packers asking for his release. Bus Cook sent the letter to the Packers asking him to be released. The letter is at the Packers facility. Mort is saying that even if the Packers came to Favre saying okay we want you back he wouldnt come back to the Packers because he doesnt feel wanted

Would u want to be back after being pressured to retire b4 u wanted to? And then asking to come back and being ignored.The only reason they want Favre back now is bcuz they're afraid of the backlash by the fans and Favre is being adamant on returning.

Brendan
07-11-2008, 04:08 PM
I wouldnt say he was pressured to be released. But i dont blame the Packers at all. Favre retired. They have moved on to Rodgers. Favre should understand the Packers situation....

Im really surprised that there is no response from the Packers. It gives the impression that they never saw this coming and that they are scrambling right now.

If they actually know what direction they are going in I would think that they would have a statement ready in the event this happened.

The person I really feel bad for is Aaron Rodgers, now he has to be better then Favre THIS year, especially if Brett plays for another team, not a good situation for a guy who payed his dues for 3 years.

I think Aaron will be fine. I think this actually takes pressure off of him, Favre could have a bad season with another team while aaron leads us to the playoffs. Favre staying retired would of had more pressure on aaron to succeed.

I dont think anyone in their right mind would pressure Favre to retire. He was pressured to make a decision becuase the team needed to know what direction to go in with the draft. He chose to retire becuase he needed to decide as opposed to waiting.

Oh no a completely agree. Some Packers fans would be angry when they figure out that Favre is going somewhere else. But by the time the season starts, the anger will be gone, and it will be sadness. As a Packers fan you guys can say that you dont care and that he is done as a Packer and da da da da, but if Adrian Peterson left the Vikings i would be crushed, so i know that you guys are, especially when you see him with another jersey on

It could be worded in so many way, but I really think Favre was somewhat persuaded/pressured by TT and Co. to hurry up, thus making him feel unwanted, so he hastily chose to retire.

Favre does not want to be traded, sources said, because he wants the freedom of choice to play for any other franchise.

Favre has been in communication with McCarthy during the past month about his desire to play but until this week had not spoken with Thompson.

Example: look at your forum, it was divided in the Favre/Rodgers controversy.....now imagine what the teammates are going to go through, it's not hard to tell if your a REAL football fan. However, if your a Homer Simpson and you want to deny everything....it's fine with me.

Favre does not want to be traded, sources said, because he wants the freedom of choice to play for any other franchise.

Favre has been in communication with McCarthy during the past month about his desire to play but until this week had not spoken with Thompson.

Once again. Dont want to be traded. Wants to be released. Because he knows the Pack wont trade him to a divisional rival.... I smell a Vikings SB....?

Well its not up to Favre, he is under contract with the Packers, the Packers are not under contract with him. The call is the Packers, they can do what they want. And he wont end up in the NFC North.

I read that his agent said the Packers should respect him and release him for all he has done for the Packers. Don't take this the wrong way becuase Favre is great, but I think he should be thanking the Packers for what they have done for him, they didnt exactly sign him as a shoe-in starter back in the day, he needed help and we gave it to him. Oh well, I think that if he wants to come back and it cant be with the Packers then he should try at all.

My prediction: Rodgers is going to be a headcase if Favre plays somewhere else. There will be too much pressure on him and the team will point fingers at each other and management.

I don't get how some Packers fans lost respect for him!! He was persuaded/pressured to quickly make his decision to retire. He then changed his mind and wanted to come back to the Packers when thinking more clearly, but ignored. Now he wants to play, so he asked to be released bcuz he isn't accepted by GB.

He is not dumb, he knows what the fans gotta b thinkin, and the fact that he cant explain his thoughts to those that matter is pathetic. I just hope this bites him in the tail. And for all those who think favre wont to go a nfc, or even nfc north team, remove ur head from ur arse, lol:)....i THINK he wants to b released so he can make his decision on where to go with NO strings attached. Which means if he feels the queens r his best shot to win and they want him, thats where he will go. Now if he feels an afc team like BAL. will b his best chance to win thats where he ends up. I am still in shock about this whole situation..... if he goes i lose all respect for TT and other upper brass for us.

The Green Bay Packers are aware of the latest developments regarding Brett Favre.

Brett earned and exercised the right to retire on his terms. We wanted him to return and welcomed him back on more than one occasion.

Brett's press conference and subsequent conversations in the following weeks illustrated his commitment to retirement.

The finality of his decision to retire was accepted by the organization. At that point, the Green Bay Packers made the commitment to move forward with our football team.

As a retired player, Brett has the option to apply for reinstatement with Commissioner Goodell. If that were to occur, he would become an active member of the Green Bay Packers. As always, the Packers will do what's right and in the best interest of the team.

As with all Packers greats, Brett's legacy will always be celebrated by our fans and the organization, regardless of any change in his personal intentions.

Brett and Deanna will always be a part of the Packers family.

(that was the statement)
Im not sure what to take from that..

FoxSports.com's Jay Glazer reports that the Packers won't release Brett Favre, as he requested Friday. They would rather trade him or make him Aaron Rodgers' backup.
That's not the only scoop Glazer has. Glazer writes that Favre was set to un-retire in late March, with both GM Ted Thompson and coach Mike McCarthy's approval. The Packers even chartered a jet for Favre to announce his return, but Favre changed his mind yet again two days before the scheduled announcement.

Well I've been told I was crazy the last few years as this entire thing has played out. I really wish I had been wrong, but now it's official. I never thought I'd see the day that we'd push the greatest player in our franchise history out when he was still this good. I sure hope Rodgers is good, because he just got a lot more pressure put on him. TT needs his *** beat. If they release him I'm going to Lambeau and raising some hell. Why would you take the chance of him going to another team, especially when all three teams in our division will at least make a run for him. Releasing him is the worst of the options we have right now. Makes me sick the disrespect that our team has for the games most prolific passer that just took second in the MVP voting. I expect that type of thing from other teams, but not the Packers. We were always above that, well until TT came to town.

The Packers have released a statement on Brett Favre, stating that they "wanted him to return and welcomed him back on more than one occasion."
"The finality of his decision to retire was accepted by the organization," the statement continues. "At that point, the Green Bay Packers made the commitment to move forward with our football team. As a retired player, Brett has the option to apply for reinstatement with Commissioner Goodell. If that were to occur, he would become an active member of the Green Bay Packers. As always, the Packers will do what's right and in the best interest of the team." This statement indicates that Green Bay will not give up all leverage and just cut Favre. GM Ted Thompson could look to trade him first.

how crazy....that means they knew he wanted back and was not sure and still offically moved on....should have kept an open mind this whole time.

more news, kind of:

It seems that Brett Favre isn't getting his way in Green Bay anymore.


The Packers legend asked the team for his unconditional release on Friday, but the organization has no intention of granting that request, FOXSports.com has learned. If anything, sources say, the team is prepared to welcome Favre back as a backup to Aaron Rodgers.

Rodgers has worked as the team's starter for the last five months and Green Bay has been operating under that assumption since Favre announced his retirement in the beginning of March. Favre re-affirmed his decision to retire at the end of March.

"The finality of (Favre's) decision to retire was accepted by the organization," the team said in a statement released Friday. "At that point, the Green Bay Packers made the commitment to move forward with our football team."

Green Bay would likely trade Favre before releasing him, sources indicate. The team has the cap space to take on Favre's huge salary, but it would rather deal him than give him up for nothing, if those were the two options.

Friday's letter asking for his release is just the latest in what has been quite a soap opera involving Favre and the team this offseason.

As word of his desire to play leaked out, the team has treated the news largely as hearsay, as this is not the first time this offseason that Favre has made such a request.

In late March during the NFL Owners Meeting, Favre informed the team he wanted to play again, multiple sources have told FOXSports.com. Not only did he insist he was returning, both head coach Mike McCarthy and GM Ted Thompson agreed that he still had something left and they would welcome him back. Despite the fact that those close to Favre have stated Thompson did not want Favre back, Thompson was the deciding factor in agreeing it was not too late to have him un-retire at that time and start for the Packers in 2008.

In fact, team brass went as far as chartering a jet to fly to Mississippi to make it official later that week. The agreement was that the NFL's all-time leading passer would return for the year but help make it easier and palatable for Rodgers, who would have to wait another season to take the helm.

The group was set for this huge move when Favre suddenly phoned the team two days before the meeting was to take place and informed McCarthy that he had changed his mind yet again and was staying retired. While team officials were stunned by Favre's reversal, they made the decision to move on and draft his replacement, a move that Favre at the time understood. The Packers selected two quarterbacks in April's draft, Louisville's Brian Brohm in the 2nd round and LSU's Matt Flynn in the 7th round.

Then, a few weeks ago, Favre phoned the team stating he had that "itch" again to play. However, since he had jilted the Packers in March, the team simply took his latest request with a grain of salt. In addition, the team has put considerable time and attention into making Rodgers comfortable as the heir apparent.

The bottom line at this point is the soap opera is unfortunately growing and likely won't die any time soon.

This makes no sense, this would divide the team even more. Everyone would be begging non-stop to TT to yank A-Rod out and put Brett in. It would drive A-Rod absolutely nuts. This would be the worst case scenario for you. You need to get rid of him before putting him on the BENCH.

The Packers have released a statement on Brett Favre, stating that they "wanted him to return and welcomed him back on more than one occasion."
"The finality of his decision to retire was accepted by the organization," the statement continues. "At that point, the Green Bay Packers made the commitment to move forward with our football team. As a retired player, Brett has the option to apply for reinstatement with Commissioner Goodell. If that were to occur, he would become an active member of the Green Bay Packers. As always, the Packers will do what's right and in the best interest of the team." This statement indicates that Green Bay will not give up all leverage and just cut Favre. GM Ted Thompson could look to trade him first.


FoxSports.com's Jay Glazer reports that the Packers won't release Brett Favre, as he requested Friday. They would rather trade him or make him Aaron Rodgers' backup.
That's not the only scoop Glazer has. Glazer writes that Favre was set to un-retire in late March, with both GM Ted Thompson and coach Mike McCarthy's approval. The Packers even chartered a jet for Favre to announce his return, but Favre changed his mind yet again two days before the scheduled announcement.

If he goes to any other team I would not mind the dolphins. Not sure why. I would like to see him win another Super Bowl but not with anyone but the Pack.

Now that he seems committed to returning and even going to another team makes me feel he is willing to play another couple years. I highly doubt he would come back to another team and play for just one more year. The Packers probably know that and it may play in their decision to trade or play him. There is no third option. If they do trade him I think they will ask for his approval first or Favre and his agent will talk a team into giving something up for him if they both want to him in a particular jersey.

Favre gave the Packers the oppurtunity to bring him back on Tuesday by telling Green Bay that he wants to come out of retirement when he met with MM and TT in a conference. Favre then waited three days and the Packers gave him no response and TT did not push at all for him to come back or show any interest in bringing him back.

Favre would take us to the Super Bowl in 2008 and possibly very well win the whole thing. TT, give the man another shot and give us what the fans want.

The Packers are the only team in the NFL who are owned by the people. Let the people decide what happens instead of essentially one man (TT).

Then we trade Rodgers b/c he deserves it plus we can get a strong piece for him and we groom Braun as the next QB.

Favre informed the team that he wanted to play again in late March during the NFL Owners Meeting, according to sources, who have spoken to FOXSports.com. Head coach Mike McCarthy and general manager Ted Thompson agreed that Favre has what it takes to play again and were going to charter a jet to Mississippi to announce that Favre would be back in 2008. Two days before the announcement, Favre notified McCarthy that he changed his mind and wanted to remain retired. Team officials were shocked at Favre's decision to stay retired but decided to move on and head into the NFL Draft, with the team drafting QB Brian Brohm and QB Matt Flynn. A few weeks ago, Favre spoke with the team via phone and said that he wanted to play again. The team had already decided to move on with QB Aaron Rodgers expected to be the starting quarterback.

WSSP radio in Milwaukee reports that the Vikings have made initial inquiries about Brett Favre, "pending his release from the Packers."
The station's website claims it will have more about the story in the coming future. Minnesota could and should have interest in Favre, but we strongly doubt that Favre will be released. If the Vikings want him as a potential one- or two-year fix, they'll probably have to come up with a trade package. Favre's agent, Bus Cook, brokered the Steve McNair deal (Baltimore sent Tennessee a conditional fourth-rounder for McNair in '06) two offseasons ago, so he has experience dealing with this sort of thing.
