Maybe they will do some spin on how ARod was "solid" in practice today with his 3 INT's in the 7 on 7 drill.

b/c its BS, Brett believes like many that the "competition" was already decided. Meaning Rodgers is the starter no matter. Brett has no reason to trust the Packers.

Essentially they are taking something as vague as "not mentally there" to end him. He said he won't be back in GB essentially.

So basically this press conference is a waste of time and nobody is giving any new information. name him the starter,trade him, whatever. just ****in resolve this thing so we can get on with the season

That is NOT ****ing true. You are just making **** up now. The Packers are basically telling Favre that he won't win the job if he competes. It's pretty obvious at this point that Favre wants to play...but the organization won't let him.

Ted Thompson is a douchebag which led us all to this situation. Favre will be the starter, Green Bay will be a force, and this whole situation will be forgotten. But I would have to think that Thompson is still urging Brett to stay retired or leave. Nothing is a weirder feeling than being somewhere where you aren't wanted. Especially after you meant so much to something in the past.

when did they ever say that?

at what point in time did they ever say "brett is not going to be the starter"

they did in the past, but once they established the competition they never said anything to infer that he would have no chance in starting

RcrkllrH2
08-05-2008, 06:43 PM

so if brett isnt in the right mindset to compete, or not in the right "place" to be the starter for the packers

why do we want him?

So they said in the past he wont be the starter but now all of a sudden have a change of heart, take the job from Aaron and throw it into a "competition."

This completely goes against their idea of Aaron Rodgers being their starter.

So pretty much they have been flip-flopping on Favre and lying to Aaron over the past weeks when they constantly came out and clearly stated that, Rodgers was their starting quarterback.

Does anyone really see any of this making sense at all?

Quite literally both Brett Favre and Aaron Rodgers have the right to be completely pissed at Packers management.

Dude, he wants to be a Packer, but he doesn't want to hurt Rodgers' feelings (lol) and TT&MM is backing Rodgers. But he said if they are really willing to have an open competition, he'll practice his butt off.

No they said they would have a competition. But Brett doesn't want to be a distraction. And the Packers pretty much hurt his feeling with what they have told him in the past and then them trying to buy him out.

I am sick of this ****, I am ready to move on. He is just being a huge cry baby and a drama queen. Right now, I say **** him.

Wth? That's what I meant. He didn't want to piss on Rodgers and mess with the team's chemistry and it was also mutually agree by MM.

And why is the blame solely on Favre? If they moved on, like u r, just let him go then.

Because right now I view this as Favres fault because of all of his flip flopping. First he says in interviews "why cant it be a competition? we go into camp and let the best man win" well we say fine it is open for competition and now he leaves GB and doesn't want to compete, because he thinks Aaron should be the QB and he doesn't want to be a distraction...Are you kidding me Brett? You don't want to be a distraction? I think your a little ****ing late on that one, you should have just stayed retired. You have now really hurt your legacy in the eyes of many fans.

He said that? Really? There's been many things released, I probably lost track, so could u point me to it:D

And again, even if he said that, there's many things that went on behind closed doors. There could be things done or said to him that made him this pissed. And u know and I know, and everyone knows that MM & TT only "allowed" competition is bcuz they HAD to, they didn't want to, but they HAD to or most of Packer nation would be furious. Like I said in another thread, would u like to work, or in this case play, for a team where the management & head coach don't really have ur back and really don't want u there.

The interview with Greta Van Sustren or whatever, he was *****ing about how they said if he came back to GB it would only be as a backup and how there wouldn't even be a QB competition...Well Brett we gave you one, and you *****ed out again.

MM sounded really pissed off in the press conference. It could be that the reporters were trying to get stuff out of him and he just kept repeating himself or it could be on Favre's conversation. Nevertheless, MM made it very clear that Favre's head wasn't in GB anymore. Which tells me Favre wants a little revenge. He wants to play against us and show us what we are missing. He was pushing really hard to go to the Vikings or the Bears. TB will give Favre that one chance in week 4 to get his revenge.

As a fan I have no hard feeling for Favre. I understand that he wanted to play but I have stuck with the organization's decision to move on. Honestly I think we will be just fine without Favre.
