This is terrible, how Favre made his decision, and how Thompson won't take one of the greatest quarterbacks of all tim on his team, who proved last year he still can play.

I'm not really that surprised to see that. I think at this point they are just exploring their options and seeing what they could possibly get for him. If they were to trade him i think the Tampa Bay Bucs and New York Jets are the two most likely destinations for him

actually i have finally come to the realization that its best that we trade favre rather than do nothing. they really dont want him on the team and said he could be a backup only for him to re-retire. they are trying to figure out what his trade value is worth, especially if he is only going to play for this one year and we could get a decent player added onto the team for our long term success. im starting to get more and more confidence in rodgers now. the thing i will say negative about this is if tt is dumb enough to trade within our same division, then he needs to be removed as gm. i would love to see favre back as much as the next person but you just have to put that aside and thing whats best for the team in the long run aka the next 5 years.

I think we should relax a little bit. They wouldn't be doing there job if they weren't at least looking. They are covering all there options right now, and lets face it; I think most of us would be suprised to see Favre in a Packer uniform this season. I know all of us would be over joyed....but I feel the rift got to big for him to realistically come back.

Who thanks they can just delete someones else's post whenever they want? Is this grop led by hughest who isnt a true packers fan? Its funny how you pose as a know it all when you have a Mat Ryan icon.... He BLOWS. but sticking with the thread topic Favre needs to reinstate himself ASAP no matter what Fing thing TT says. We all know Mike Mc along with every packers player on the roster, besides ARod, wants Favre back. Mike is backing TT up though because if he says other wise than he will be fired. Rodgers does have a future but he is being selfish to not make a public statement to say bring Favre back one more year. ARod knows along with every other TRUE packer fan (sorry Hug you love Ryan and he doesn't wear green and gold) that they need Favre to better their chances to the super bowl. If he is reinstated he will not be a 2nd string and earn the 1 spot in training camp. The streak of consecutive starts will continue playing for the GREEN and GOLD

I don't think it's pointless. Brett being reinstated isn't a problem. These talks can go on without Brett asking to be reinstated.

1st of all hughest4 is a great mod, so people need to get off his back for doing his job. He has done a great job of trying to keep order in this forum during a very chaotic time for Packers fans.

2nd, I hope to never see Favre in another teams colors, but it seems inevitable at this point. I just truly hope Favre succeeds where he goes. He deserves to be treated better, and I think that while the administration did attempt to bring him back initially, they should have done what was best for the team and brought Brett back again. I hold nothing against the team, or Rodgers. They will do great, but the way this went down still makes me sick.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but the reason is that if he files and TT&MM decides to keep him as a backup and won't trade/release him, then he is stuck. He don't want to be a backup and possibly will be angry and won't show up to camp, then he will be fine like $15,000 per day.

Nope hit it right on the head there. I just wish he'd realize if he came to camp he WOULD BE the starting QB. No he wants everyon to suck on his....before he comes back. And then still start

I would hardly call deleting posts a power trip. Anyways, i would hardly call what Matt Ryan did to Virginia Tech the luckiest prayer throw in all of college football. He had one of the best drives of the college football season and was tearing apart the soft prevent defense that Va Tech was playing. Doug Flutie's pass was lucky, Matt Ryan's was simply a great throw.

I'm hardly on the Atlanta Falcons train. If you didn't noticed he is in a Boston College jersey, not a Falcons one. I'll watch him and follow him but you can be a fan of a player and not a fan of a team

I am well aware of what you said in the post before. I was just trying to show you a good example of a "lucky prayer throw" compared to a great throw. He rolled out of the pocket and threw to a wide open player in the endzone, thats it. I would hardly call that luck.

Anyway, lets try to keep these posts on topic and Packers related. Thanks

Brett Favre-QB- Packers Jul. 24 - 10:24 pm et

Yahoo Sports' Jason Cole reports that the Packers are near an agreement with Brett Favre.

Green Bay would draw up a list of teams that are willing to trade for Favre, then he would choose his preference. "But it may take awhile," said a source. "The Packers are hoping that some team has a big injury and then is forced to make a deal." The source also says concerns about Favre's ability to pick up an offense are overblown: "Brett is a sandlot guy. What you’re going to do with him is find his 10 favorite plays and run those. Forget him learning your whole playbook. That’s not going to work."

Alex Marvez (foxsports.com) thinks that a deal will be done in the next 24 to 48 hours. Here's the link to the video.

Asked of the Eagles' potential interest in Brett Favre Thursday, coach Andy Reid said "(Green Bay) called and there is no interest on our part whatsoever."

Reid likes the guys on his roster. Though Reid coached Favre as a Packers assistant, there was never a chance he'd go to Philly. The NFL is pushing Green Bay to contact every team in the league so the matter is soon resolved.

brett won't file for reinstaement until he knows what team he will be going to. If favre files for reinstatement and the packers trade him to some lousy team that he doesn't want to play for, then he has to re-retire and looks like more of a flip flopper. The media would go nuts if favre asked for reinstement friday only to announce he'll stay retired few days later. This wouldn't be a flip flop, (he always said there were certain he didn't want to play for) but the media would make it look like one. which is why favre will wait to be traded before reinstating.

That's why you have to write up specific conditions to the contract. Something in the contract stating that the team that gets Brett cannot turn around and trade him to any team in the NFC North.

It doesn't hurt to ask, but the Packers will probably come down off that price. They seem motivated to move Favre, and aren't dealing from a position of strength. The Bucs and Jets reportedly have received permission to talk to the Packers.

Though the Bucs deny that they've spoken to the Packers about Brett Favre, the Jets have held preliminary trade discussions with Green Bay.

The Jets and Packers have talked about potential draft-pick compensation and Favre's contract status. The Packers then suggested that the Jets talk to Favre to gauge his interest, but the team hadn't contacted him as of Friday night. Despite the Bucs denials, head coach Jon Gruden would not say unequivocally that the team had no interest in Favre.

Yeah that's what I'm hoping the plan is as well. I've been listening to reports on BSPN throughout the day and it doesn't sound like they think that's the case.

Give the man what he wants, He can play better than anyone, and he will always be the face of the packers, why let his career end like jerry rices. let him retire in the green and yellow and let him have his one last shot.

While agree with you about the fact that Favre should retire a Packer and never play for another team, i disagree with you about the Jets. I actually think it would be the best fit for him other then the Packers. They have a lot of good players on that team. The O-Line is going to be very good with guys like Alan Faneca, Nick Mangold, D'Brickashaw Ferguson, and Damien Woody. The improved O-Line will help Thomas Jones and Leon Washington a ton. Cotchery, Coles, Keller, and a red-zone Target in Bubba Franks gives Favre a bunch of different legit targets to throw to. People are making a big deal about them losing Vilma but in reality their D is solid as well.

The Jets have made the playoffs every other year since the late 90's so i don't see that changing this time around with Favre on their team

According to the Tampa Tribune, "it is believed" that the Packers and Bucs were close to agreeing on compensation in a trade that would've sent Brett Favre to Tampa Bay on Saturday.

The Tribune suggests that renewed talks Sunday may have been why Favre and Green Bay are at a standstill. In addition, beat reporter Roy Cummings says "it is believed" that the Jets are not bidding for Favre's services. The Packers are thought to be holding out for conditional draft pick that could escalate to a first-rounder if Favre plays a certain amount of games.

I would guess if it doesn't work out with Tampa things could get a little hairy.

Even if the Packers and Bucs work out a trade it doesn't mean Favre will go there. In the other Favre thread i just posted in there was quote from him saying that he wouldn't mind getting traded but he doesn't want to get traded to the Jets or Bucs

I think Tampa is a distant second to Minnesota for Brett...I think him and Chucky would make it work. Warm weather, good team with a lot of veterans. Probably less pressure than Minnesota. It makes sense.

there is a better chance of him going to Tampa than to the Jets

I gotta say if he does goes to Tampa, week 4 should be interesting

Asked Monday if he'd ever consider trading Brett Favre to another NFC North club, Packers GM Ted Thompson replied "No."

The only way Favre would get to Chicago, Minnesota, or Detroit is via release, and the Packers aren't going that route. "To just offer a blanket release and just relinquishing all the club’s rights, to me, doesn’t make good business sense," Thompson said.

Like I said before this is kind of off the wall and not a chance but I dont see why Arizona isnt in the running, like I said before they would be insane to think Leinhart or Warner would get more than 7 wins...And imagine if you paired
Favre with Fitz and Bolden..That would be scary..Plus what we want is a good veteran backup and they could give us Warner and a pick

I haven't heard the Cardinals mentioned at all. Doesn't seem like a bad idea. I know Warner isn't even a shell of his former MVP self but he could/is a decent insurance piece. If the draft pick was a first rounder, then hell yeah it sounds good.

No this doesn't mean I want to trade Brett Favre either....:mad:

Yea exactly, and were not gonna get a first rounder for him, PERIOD! So to be realistic Warner and a 3rd rounder or something like that would be about the best value we could get for him

Yeah, i think that cap is the reason that the Cardinals aren't in the trade talks. If we were able to get Warner and a 2nd i would do it, but anything less then that and i wouldn't. Kurt Warner is still an excellent passer and he would do well here. He has no mobility and can't really avoid sacks but luckily for him he would have a pretty good O-Line in front of him

Yea a lot better than AZ, but that might be another reason Favre might not want to go there is because of a weak O line but he get rid of the ball so quick I dont think it matter as much as Warner or Leinhart

I think it's going to be a tug of war between Favre and the front office until the owner gets involved. I personally think it's going to be the Bucs or the Jets, they are the only teams you're hearing about. I'm sure all the NFC North teams made offers but the Packers responded to them that they wanted "2 first round picks". I think Favre goes to the Jets, I think the Packers won't budge on a 1st from the Bucs because Jeff Garcia would get released. I think they're more willing to take a 2nd round pick and 5th round pick from the Jets because the only way they face Brett Favre is in the Super Bowl and we're not going to see Packers/Jets.

I agree with you here. TT flat out said that there was no way they would trade him to a NFC North team. Originally i thought the Jets would be the best fit and most likely destination but who knows. Does Favre want to go there? Thats what it really comes down to

According to Brett Favre's agent, Favre is willing to play for either the Jets or the Buccaneers, and he hopes a trade is completed by Thursday at the latest.

Peter King of SI.com reports that the Jets are offering a conditional third-round pick for Brett Favre "that could rise to a first-round draft choice depending on the team's performance and how well Favre plays."

As I've already said in the past, if he must be dealt this would be the best fit IMO. It's a different conference and we wont have to face him. I don't think that there's a great chance of the Packers and Jets meeting in the Super Bowl.
