The Packers have issued a statement on Brett Favre, confirming that Favre will be welcomed back to the team.
"We now will revise many actions and assumptions about our long-term future, all predicated on Brett's decision last March to retire," the statement from CEO Mark Murphy reads. "It's very difficult to reorient our plans and cross it again in the opposite direction - but we'll put this to our advantage. Brett will be in camp tomorrow." The statement does not rule out a trade, but it sounds like they are leaving the door open on Favre being part of the roster.

Citing a source close to the Packers, the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports that Brett Favre will compete with Aaron Rodgers to start in training camp.

Chris Mortenson was just on ESPN News a little bit ago saying not to be surprised if Favre shows up tonight at family night in front of 50,000 fans. Wow, this is finally starting to show some positive signs. It's either let him compete for HIS job, or cut/trade him to the Vikings. Mortenson also said the 25 mil dollar deal is dead, Favre just wants to play, and play for the Packers.

See, TT is no idiot, even though he makes us all think that sometimes. He gets Grant in camp, and then realizes that Favre is obviously the best choice to QB the team. So he let's Favre compete with Rodgers. Aaron is going to be majorly pissed, but w/e, if he wants a trade, humor him. Go Favre!

Rodgers shouldn't be pissed. If he thinks he's good enough for the job, then win it. And if the outcome is not in his favor, the only person he needs to blame is himself.

i am just hoping that management has woke up a little and is now realizing with grant and favre together there is a solid shot of a super bowl. i like mark murphy's comments thus far. but, like i said. tt needs to be on board with this. and god i hope he doesnt turn this into a nightmare again.

...and this idea of competing for the starting job is nothing more than a technicality. Every single person ever knows that Favre will win the job in less than a day. LOL @ the idea of the starting QB of 16 years competing with a kid that's been his backup for 3 years and has never started a game in his career. TT is just doing this to save face and try to not burn his bridges with Rodgers.

Looks like i was right all along... TT finally realized he can and will never be the face of the GB franchise. Favre is back and now the pack is back as NFC favorites to contend in the super bowl. But first Favre has to break another record. He will be the first to break the MADDEN CURSE! If he doesn't then it looks like the curse started this entire off season.

The only person that looks like a fool in this is Ted Thompson. You pretty much said that the team has moved on from Favre, and that Aaron Rodgers is our quarterback. Ok. Then, you try and trade him and say that you don't expect fair compensation, but you ask for a 1st round pick. Ok. Then, he tries to buy Favre out for 10Yrs.-25M for a marketing campaign, that he rejects. It's like Favre really needs money. Now, Goodell reinstates Favre and he will be in camp tomorrow. OK, so it's still Aaron's team. Then you decide to open the starting job up for open competition. What an idiot. He's a great GM, but he hasn't handled this situation very well. Favre is a great QB, and gives the Packers a better chance, but i really think that Aaron Rodgers is going to be a good QB. He can scramble, has a good awareness on the field, and has a good arm. There is a reason why some thought he could have been a No. 1 overall pick, and he did learn behind one of the best. It's not fair to Aaron what's being done.

wwfd1220
08-03-2008, 06:08 PM
^^ alot of people said that brohm would have been a top pick in last years draft had he come out. big deal neither of them have any to little pro experience. favre gives the packers the best chance to win. you sell tickets on telling your ticket holders you are in it too win it . it was all smoke screen in hopes of brett walking away from the game. letting favre go too a division rival would not be good business in green bay. and the brass know this, and they know that brett pulls in more revenue for the team. ultimately the packers are a business that needs profits.

So do people really think the Packers have really done a 180 and now want Farve in uniform?? After going through this drama for the last three years, im sure TT was fed up. I dont blame him. Green Bay used TWO draft pics on a QB and have had Rodgers on the shelf for 3 years. My guess is that behind the scene, the Pack management is livid. They have been made to look like fools. Nobody was going to give the Packers a second round pick for a player the Packers publicly said they didnt want back. The Vikings and Bucs waited until the Pack either released him or took him back. Nobody is going to trade for a 12 million dollar contract when they could have got Farve for much less if he had been released. You better hope Farve can lead you to a SB because if not, you wasted another year and still wont know if Rodgers can play. Then the drama begins all over again. Will he play next year?? Depends on way day of the week it will be. My guess is the Pack wait until the last week of pre season, when a QB on another team could be injured, before they either release him or try again to trade him. If they didnt want him back last week and were willing to pay him 20 million to stay away, its not going to change much, except that the commish stepped in today. I will never forget the comment that Farve made when Rodgers was in his first training camp, when asked if he was mentoring Rodgers, Farve replied "Thats not my job"...One the best QB's of all time, and I have been a huge Farve fan through the years, have about 50 of his rookie cards, but I must say one of the most selfish of all time also.

The Packers 1st team defense looks great, even without Woodson. The defensive line was smothering, got in Brohm's face a ton and allowed nothing literally nothing from the running game. Brohm did complete a 12 yard pass though.

Matt Flynn hasn't looked bad either. Has completed a few and looks like he has good upside. With a blitz in his face, Flynn threw a nice slant to Jordy, who dropped it. I'll give him a break though. I like Flynn.

With the pocket collapsing around him, Flynn eluded and ran for about 12 yards. Not too bad, rook.

What if the Pack name Favre the starting QB, and Favre becomes the Brett Favre from 2006. Ha everyone is acting like just because Faver had a great year last year that he is going to come back and be just as strong

2007 Favre: 4155 yards, 28TD, 15 INT, 95.7 rating, 66.5 comp pct

2006 Favre: 3885 yards, 18TD, 18 INT, 72.7 rating, 56 comp pct

2005 Favre: 3881 yards, 20TD, 29 INT, 70.9 rating, 61.3 comp pct

Ha just because Favre had a great year last year doesnt mean he has been that great lately. What if they name Favre the starting QB, Rodgers demands out of GB, and then Favre goes to the Favre of 2 or 3 years ago. In 2006 the Pack were 8-8, in 2005 the Pack were 4-12. Hahahahahahahahahahahaha now THAT would make my year

if he wants to play, let him play for us. say all you want about favre, he still gives us the best chance to win in my opinion. and after watching rodgers performance so far tonight. i am glad he is back. as for him tutoring rodgers. why should he tutor rodgers. nobody was here when he was learning the offense and so forth. it is not his job to make sure rodgers is the q.b. of the future in green bay. that responsibilty belongs too the coaching staff. and when the year ends this year. i expect we get a decision much sooner than last year, for reasons that are obvious. favre didnt want this to go down like it has, anymore than the packers brass wanted it to go down this way. welcome back brett

He's looking good, as is the entire defense. The 1st team defense didn't have about 5 starters even playing, Woodson, Harris, KGB, and more, which makes the fact that Rodgers is struggling even more disparaging. After watching his lackluster performance tonight, I'm very happy Favre is coming back. Did anybody see the video of the plane landing and Favre driving home? Fans following him, chanting his name, going nuts. He's starting for us next year, baby.

After she passed away i started following who my dad liked...and that was the Green Bay Packers. It was also around the time when they were winning the Super Bowl so i guess you could say that i jumped on the bandwagon. But for the past 13-14 years i have been faithful to the Packers and thats not going to change.

There is the story haha

the way murphy talked after the scrimmage. it is pretty much that brett is back and he is here for the season and beyond. the packers want to keep the relationship strong. and brett wants to play football. from the remarks i am goona go out on a limb and say that murphy is playing mediator

Thats kind of my story because I used to follow my dad's team which was the Cowboys but wen I saw Favre play and desmond Howard returning kicks I just took a liking to them and when they met head to head about 10 years ago I found myself rooting for the Pack and it not going to cange no matter what.

The main difference is that this is during training camp. If Favre was on the bench it'd be a circus during the season, and a circus about 10x bigger than what we have going on now.

08-04-2008, 03:22 AM
they get the same reps in camp. and the best overall q.b. wins the spot. that is how. if rodgers wants to win the job. he needs to bring his A game.

Ok, ive always tried to have a fair view of Aaron Rodgers, but after seeing him play in the family night scrimmage tonight, I now know that we need Brett back. Rodgers looked seriously BAD against basically our second team defense (lots of players not participating). However, im still not trying to rip Rodgers, all i mean is that he definitely isnt where he needs to be to start at QB AND give us the best chances of winning ball games. If Thompson REALLY thinks that starting Rodgers and running Brett out of town is a good idea someone needs to go and hit him in the face until his eyes/brain start working again(if it ever has).. Please god let these rumors of open competition for the starting job be 100 percent true.

Also if you haven't signed the petition yet go to.. www.savebrett.net

Ive also thought.... MM says that he wont change anything about the direction the team has taken in the offseason. DO YOU THINK?! that maybe the packers will allow Favre the chance to compete and then once the starter is announced they will still pick Rodgers and say something like "Aaron is the best fit for this organization and the direction the team is moving in for 2008" I mean with what has happened in the front office this far this offseason i just really wonder if i wouldnt put something like that above them..???

08-04-2008, 09:52 AM
Well, this is all a little too much. I really want to think that he's going to play, but there is no way of saying yes or no. If the Packers were in fact to trade him to the Vikings, my world would fall apart. I have 280 sick hours, and I guarantee you I'd be taking them all.

BrewCityBuck
08-04-2008, 11:41 AM
So some unnamed 'source' says he will be competing? Who the hell knows if thats true. From what i've read, Favre will likely be doing individual drills and won't be with the team directly for a while.

It's just stupid anyway to say Favre will be competing for the starting job, because you can't judge a QB or pick a starter based on what a QB is doing in training camp. It's just silly.

Aaron Rodgers will be the starter going into the season. I don't buy any of this.

You've got to be kidding me. That is probably the biggest homer comment I have seen in a LONG time.

He won't even be the best returner in his division. Have you forgotten that Devin Hester exists?

Ha, its okay i am definitely off my rocker. Sure people think i am crazy for saying something like this but i honestly think he has the ability to be a Pro-Bowl Kick/Punt Returner possibly better then Hester. I followed him all 4 years at Boston College and he is so explosive and shifty. Hester had better stats then him but that was all while Blackmon was the #1 CB/#1 WR for BC. If he stays healthy everyone will know his name.

Call me a homer or whatever you want, but i know what the guy can do...when healthy. I have been saying the same thing since he was drafted but unfortunately he hasn't been able to prove me right. I usually don't make comments that are "Homer-ish" but i have a good feeling about him

Brett Favre isn't going to be the starter going into the season. There's no way the Packers went to all this trouble just to give in. There isn't going to be a real competition. Aaron Rodgers is going to be the starter regardless of what happens in training camp.

I have to back hughest on this one. Blackmon is going to be a great returner. I wouldn't say the best in the league, but he will give us a noticeable upgrade in the punt return game.

augipitcher3
08-04-2008, 04:16 PM
Yeah, but that won't happen. If you knew anything about the Packers from those years, you'd know they're not the same situations. In 2005 Favre had 2 1/2 good receivers and was in a **** situation. I'll take 14 great football years over 2 bad years.

Want to know what else would be funny? If Favre came back and whooped the Vikings 34-0 like last year. And that's what's going to happen.

I also find this comical.

ryanph30
08-04-2008, 04:40 PM
Hester is nearly the best kick returner EVER stats wise, and last year was only his second season. Blackmon will be a good kick returner, maybe even top 5. But the way Hester has been bringing them back the last few years, he will never match that, nobody may ever again for that matter.

billybill77
08-04-2008, 05:25 PM
I hope that there really is a true competition. Whoever performs the best in camp and the preseason should be the starter. Favre shouldn't get it just because of his name. That being said, if he earns it outright (which he probably will) then I have no problem.

It's simple. Brett's gonna beat *** in training camp and start every game, no matter if it's a pre-season game or pickup game in McCarthy's back yard. Come February he'll be hoisting the Lombardi trophy above his head, returning the trophy to it's rightful city.

Ehh, i very well could be off my rocker. Have you ever had a feeling that somebody is going to be a great, great player even before he has proven that he is? Thats what i feel about Blackmon. Just based on what i saw in college and the flashes i have seen in the NFL when he is healthy makes me think he is a special talent. Saying he is going to be better then Hester could be seen as stupid but thats just how good i think he could be.

That's fine. It just seemed that you forgot Hester was in the NFL, much less the NFC North. Had to make sure you were paying attention. ;) However, out of all the positions, best KR/PR in the game is going to be VERY hard to surpass the current leader, whom many consider to ALREADY be the best kick returner in NFL history.

Haha no, no, no i certainly can't forget about a guy like Devin Hester. Not only has he been somebody to look out for twice a year when we play Chicago, but Will Blackmon was also always in his shadow during college. We'll just see what happens this year.

Yeah i was on my first deployment. I remember when Rodgers came in to replace an injured Favre during the Cowboys game. We were getting whooped and Rodgers almost brought us back. I was pretty excited for his future. I was really bummed when it became known that Favre was leaving us, but towards the end of his packer career i was really getting tired of his game ending INT's. I was really looking forward to see what we had with Rodgers.

Me too man! he kicked *** in that game, he also finally looked really promising that preseason too, unlike his first couple.

I really didn't pay much attention to Favre's offseason antics. When i heard he was going to "retire" i was pretty bummed and wondered what was going to happen post Favre. I was more annoyed at his turnovers in big games. After the game ending INT against the Giants in the NFCCG i was kind of hoping we would move on from him sooner rather than later.

He kept talking about no brainer moves like going for Lynch. I simply said most fans would have kept Favre.

That's probably why he isn't here. There was this other dude, DRS, but he bashed Rodgers every chance he got. His main reason for it was cause we all love Rodgers and think he is awesome. He believed Favre was better than Rodgers as well. Glad he is gone though, **** got old quick.
