I think today is a happy day. I mean I never would have wanted it to happen. But he's not playnig for the Vikings or Bucs. That is good news. This is as good as it possibly could be.

47 years old here and a rabid fan for 40. I am sickened by this trade. A couple days ago, I said that I would be rooting for whatever team grabbed #4. However, I HATE the f-ing AFC and will really struggle to be a Jets fan. They are arguably the second most obnoxious fans behind Philly. The northeastern part of our great country is an armpit thanks to the rude and arrogant people that live there on a whole. Well, I guess for now I will have the Jets to root for as far as the AFC is concerned, but grudgeonly so.

I am so disappointed in Ted Thompson and Mark Murphy right now. Don't blame McCarthy. He's just Ted's puppet. I just don't know how I feel about the Packers right now. Bart Starr was my sports hero as a kid. I wore #15 my entire lame sports career. My Dad hung out a little with Paul Hornung, Max McGee, and a few other Packers. My old man was a national sales manager for a garage door opener company for a few years in the late 60's and even fixed Bart's garage door just so he could get me his autograph and to tell him what a hero he was to me. When Bart retired, I was 11 and cried like an infant - just like Ted Thompson cried when he was 4 years old after his parents told him that there was no Santa and there would never be Christmas in their home. 36 years later, there are children all over the state of Wisconsin that are crying and can't fathom why this organization would dump the greatest player in it's history that was still capable of playing 3 more years at a high level.

I'm sure I'll be cheering for the Pack, but it sure has a different feeling. Rodgers better take this team further than Favre takes the Jets. The Jets are no where the team that we have in GB. Should the Jets win more games than GB, Ted Thompson should be publickly tortured. My hate for this white haired buffoon is such that there is sadly a part of me that wants Rodgers to flop in order to see Ted Thompson fired, run out of town, and maimed.

The anger isn't directed at Rodgers. He has done nothing except being a stupid draft pick 3 years ago. I've seen enough football, hung out with Big10coaches, and a couple guys that have Super Bowl rings. I just don't think Rodgers will be anything more than an average player in this league. We'll have to wait and see, but this kid is in a NO WIN situation. Both Ted Thompson and Favre have put him in a horrible spot. The only way he'll win over the fanbase is by completing 68% of his passes with twice as many TD's as INT's. That's not gonna happen and he will be booed more than anyone this franchise has ever employed. I actually feel sorry for him. If we had been 8-8 last year, Favre would have retired for good. If he would have wanted to come back AGAIN, I wouldn't have had nearly as big a problem trading him as I do today because this team could have gone to the Super Bowl with Favre leading it.

This is just one long term Packer fan's opinion. Ted Heads don't need to blast me on this. There are other threads where you can drink your Ted Juice. Let those of us mourn Favre's official exit in peace. No reason to kick us when we're down.

i agree, we dont have to watch him beat up on the pack at least this year anyway and the better he does the higher the draft pick we get. that being said i cant see the pack being a real contender for a few years

The Jets should have kept Vilma is they wanted to go for it all within the next 1-2 years.

Adding Favre most certainly is an upgrade & will improve this team a few wins.

It's a sad day to see Favre leave the Packers.

Talk about over the top......darkest day in Packer history, give me a break. How about some perspective fellas. This is not the end of the world. No matter who you think is responsible, at least both parties feel like they came out of this ok. The Packers have a chance now to try and groom this young qb into a champion with all the talent around him. Favre was great, but life goes on. Lets cheer for a successful end to his career. Don't ever forget what he has done, and know that he will forever be remembered as a Packer.

This is the darkest day in the history of the franchise. Perhaps you haven't been around long enough to understand this. The second darkest day was the death of Lombardi, and he was a Redskin when he died. That said, this was your best post that I've seen. There may well be hope for you. What you need to understand is that as much as the MAJORITY of us are sick over this, there are New Yorkers that are freaking giddy over having Christmas in August. Life does go on, but let those of us grieve.

I can understand why you think it's funny. I would laugh if you guys had a qb and he was traded. That being said. I don't have to look any farther than the pic of Grossman at the bottom of your sig to make me laugh. Good luck with that one. Side note. Even without Favre we are better than you, just not as good as we would be with Favre.

For a Bear fan to come on our site and act the fool really isn't too surprising. He's probably out of work and his wife left him for someone else that could please her sexually after finding his gay porn stash. Don't even get me started on the high probability that he has a huge meth problem too. Take it easy on him, the Bears haven't had a decent qb since Sid Luckman. Jealousy rears it's head in many forms.

Your 27 years old and your 'hero' is a guy who throws a football? Eh.

This would have been the darkest day in Packers history if we had lost Brett Favre when he was 28 or so years old, but he's 39 and will likely only play 2 years and have limited playoff success....so i'm not going to blow this out of proportion like the world as ended.

I asked politely that Ted Heads let us mourn in this thread without having to put your management spin on things. Yet here you are. Big surprise. This is a VERY dark day in our franchise history. We are the laughing stock of football if you read or listen to anything outside of the Menasha Gazette.

I do agree that at 27 your hero shouldn't be a soon to be 39 year old athlete.

We do need to move on. What's done is done regardless on where you stand on the issue of what truely was Ted VS Brett. Just let those of us that are pissed and upset have one stinking thread where we can commiserate. That's not too much to ask from one Packer brother to another, or is it?

While all of you know I love Brett but this to me is NOT the worst day in our history. That for me was when we lost the Super Bowl. Wins and loses mean more to me than anything. The pain of losing stays with me forever. The thing that makes it easier for me to deal with is the fact that BRETT left. We didnít force him to make his original decision. He couldíve and shouldíve asked for more time before retiring. He also left camp too. MM was very clear in his presser about Brett not being able to get over it and play football. Brett wanted to be a Viking and we werenít going to budge. Is that why he came to camp? Did he think we would fold and release him? Can someone give me a good answer as to why in the **** he even came to camp? I thought it was to play football and compete for the spot. In the end Brett didnít want to be here so he left. I still love him but I'm glad this **** is over because both sides were being *****es. Its time to get back to what we care about and thatís football. The best ending to this would be us facing the Jets in the Super Bowl (we get a first round pick) and we absolutely destroy them.

Words cannot describe the agony I felt when I woke up this morning and checked espn.com to see if by some miracle Brett Favre had changed his mind and decided to give GB another go. However I was instead greeted with "Jet Setter" and a giant picture of Favre and an article annoucing his arrival in Jetland.

All I know is that on the painful day of September 7th 2008 we will all have to watch Brett Favre trot out on a field other than lambeau, wearing green and white as the NYJ fans cheer madly for their newly acquired legend. I've managed to keep my composure so far and haven't broken down yet, but I'm sure that dismal day will be far too much for me to take, and I will lament the loss of Brett Favre vastly.

I try to tell myself everything will be good, and that the packers will still be fine this season, but I find that I can't cope with the fact that Favre, a man I've worshiped for 16 out of my 19 years of existence, is still playing football and not wearing the Green and Gold #4 jersey he made so famous. I'm not going to wish death and destruction on our season this year or ever though, cause I think the only thing more painful than losing Favre would be losing Favre and then watching him suceed elsewhere as GB falls apart in wake of his departure.

I guess it's time to thrust all of my support into Rodgers corner, and hope that he can become a fraction of the QB Brett Favre was and forever will be. However, when Rodgers throws that 1st TD pass of the year and he doesn't sprint 80 yards downfield like an absolute madman to hoist Driver over his shoulders, I'll truly know the weight of the loss of my idol Brett Favre.

I am not trying to pour fuel on any fires here, but I wanted to say something to Packers fans. I'm a long time Redskins fan, but have always held Favre and the Packers in a special place in my heart. I've always wanted him/them to do well, and cheered for them when it didn't hurt the Redskins chances. I have to say now, I will be hoping they fail horribly this year. I really hope Thompson and McCarthy (mostly Thompson) live to regret this day. They treated Favre like a stray cat after all he's done for the franchise, and I think it's a shame. I too woke up sad this morning, knowing Favre is a Jet, and I have nothing against the Jets, and really am not a Packers fan. Sorry if this post makes people mad, but posting it in the 'Skins site mad no sense.

Does Rodgers honestly need the extra pressure hawkeye? He knows what he has to do. He's out there for one reason and thats to win games. I know your a Packer supporter, but people adding pressure on Rodgers is not going to help him. Like I said in another thread, people will boo Rodgers in week 1 and for what reason? He has done nothing wrong. He has kept his mouth shut and for the most part have said all the right things. If the fans should be booing anyone it should be Favre or TT.

How in the hell am I putting pressure on Rodgers? The only way that would be possible is if he's reading this ridiculous board. If that's the case, this team is in HUGE trouble.

I started a thread a couple weeks ago about booing Rodgers. I've been going to pro and college games since the 70's and I have never booed a player from my team. What that thread stated was that Rodgers will indeed be booed with every minor mistake. I said that those boos will be directed moreso at Ted Thompson. It is unfair to hammer Rodgers about anything at this point. I feel SORRY for the kid quite frankly as he is in a NO WIN SITUATION that Thompson AND Favre have put him in.

I agree that Favre and Thompson are both to blame for this fiasco. My blame is much more directed at Thompson because he has been here but 3 years and has wanted our SIXTEEN year icon that played to a PROBOWL level last year GONE. The combination from Favre acting the diva and Ted's ego run amok made for a ridiculous situation that could easily have been settled with Favre coming back.

Yes I will support Aaron Rodgers, but I am being honest as always on here when I say that there is a small part of me that wants Rdogers to fail so Thompson is fired. I disagee with our GM on a lot more than the Favre fiasco and have done so since his arrival.

Again, NONE of this is Rodgers fault. He is ina ridiculously impossible situation unless he stays healthy and has better stats than 99% of the first year starters in the history of our great league. I wish the kid luck. He's gonna need it with stacked lines and pressure in his face every game he plays. Grant will be in for a huge test with the kid behind center too. All I said about Rodgers is that I don't think he'll be anything special. Just my opinion after studying this game with passion for 40 years.

I don't expect the Packer players to read this forum but what this says is you don't take this forum seriously Then why post? In fact, the only time you do post is when you raggin on somebody (which will in fact there will be a negative response from Hawkeye) for having positive views and optimistic views of the Packers head office and the team's outlook.

Look i'll share somthing with ya. I've been reading these boards for 2+ years now and only in the last month have I decided to let my opinion finally known. Whenever i wanna here the cynical side of things i look straight for what Hawkeye says. THat's not a dis what so ever that's a compliment. I love hearing both sides of the story and stay away from the close minded\one sided way of thinking. And when i have to hear the one side of things....you are the first person i look to read. With that being said you trully influence other people with what you think. Anything negative you spit out on these boards reaches 100's and 100's of packer fans and thousands upon thousands of sports fans. You have influence here. Everyone who comes on here knows who Hawkeye is.

Point i'm trying to make....and i think wissportsfan as well...negative influence and negativity is the LAST thing this team needs right now. It hurts for everyone that Brett is a Jet. But we got to move on...all of us, TOGETHER, and get behind this team. No boo's. Patience and Cheers is what this team needs more then ever before in it's history.

Good post Martz. I plan on throwing my support to Aaron as well. Like I said though, there will be an enormous amount of booing with each misstep that Rodgers takes. I won't be one of them. All I'm saying is that the boos will be directed at TT - thru Rodgers occasional errors. Those are the idiots we need to be concerned with. Ripping on TT and the majority of his moves is relatively harmless except when it effects some people out here that actually value some of the crap I write. To those I say, get a life. I'm just a guy out here with an opinion and I write with ascerbic wit. Again, I write the same way I talk with my buddies when we're together watching any sports. We RIP on each other constantly and laugh it off over beers.

I wish Favre a GREAT season and hope we meet them in the SB. Not gonna happen for either team, but a man can dream! Rodgers does indeed need patience from ALL of us, it's just too bad that there will be drunken Brett Heads screaming garbage at him. Rodgers has done nothing but handle this mess with class. I hope he continues to do so when the REALLY tough times come, and trust me Martz, they're coming.

I've been feeling the same way. But after careful consideration and 40 years of bleeding Green and Gold, I am behind this team. I am not behind the buffoon with the white hair. Never have been, never will be. The Ari Fleischer thing is comical. They hire him for a month of spin. Incredible!

47 years old here and a rabid fan for 40. I am sickened by this trade. A couple days ago, I said that I would be rooting for whatever team grabbed #4. However, I HATE the f-ing AFC and will really struggle to be a Jets fan. They are arguably the second most obnoxious fans behind Philly. The northeastern part of our great country is an armpit thanks to the rude and arrogant people that live there on a whole. Well, I guess for now I will have the Jets to root for as far as the AFC is concerned, but grudgeonly so.

I am so disappointed in Ted Thompson and Mark Murphy right now. Don't blame McCarthy. He's just Ted's puppet. I just don't know how I feel about the Packers right now. Bart Starr was my sports hero as a kid. I wore #15 my entire lame sports career. My Dad hung out a little with Paul Hornung, Max McGee, and a few other Packers. My old man was a national sales manager for a garage door opener company for a few years in the late 60's and even fixed Bart's garage door just so he could get me his autograph and to tell him what a hero he was to me. When Bart retired, I was 11 and cried like an infant - just like Ted Thompson cried when he was 4 years old after his parents told him that there was no Santa and there would never be Christmas in their home. 36 years later, there are children all over the state of Wisconsin that are crying and can't fathom why this organization would dump the greatest player in it's history that was still capable of playing 3 more years at a high level.

I'm sure I'll be cheering for the Pack, but it sure has a different feeling. Rodgers better take this team further than Favre takes the Jets. The Jets are no where the team that we have in GB. Should the Jets win more games than GB, Ted Thompson should be publickly tortured. My hate for this white haired buffoon is such that there is sadly a part of me that wants Rodgers to flop in order to see Ted Thompson fired, run out of town, and maimed.

The anger isn't directed at Rodgers. He has done nothing except being a stupid draft pick 3 years ago. I've seen enough football, hung out with Big10coaches, and a couple guys that have Super Bowl rings. I just don't think Rodgers will be anything more than an average player in this league. We'll have to wait and see, but this kid is in a NO WIN situation. Both Ted Thompson and Favre have put him in a horrible spot. The only way he'll win over the fanbase is by completing 68% of his passes with twice as many TD's as INT's. That's not gonna happen and he will be booed more than anyone this franchise has ever employed. I actually feel sorry for him. If we had been 8-8 last year, Favre would have retired for good. If he would have wanted to come back AGAIN, I wouldn't have had nearly as big a problem trading him as I do today because this team could have gone to the Super Bowl with Favre leading it.

This is just one long term Packer fan's opinion. Ted Heads don't need to blast me on this. There are other threads where you can drink your Ted Juice. Let those of us mourn Favre's official exit in peace. No reason to kick us when we're down.

What were they supposed to do with the guy? He didn't want to play here anymore after they "were mean" to him. I don't blame them at all. Favre retired, wanted to come back like 2 weeks later, a press conference was even setup. Then at the last second Favre backed down. Then 4 months later, after Rodgers is confident he will start, he says he "has the itch". The Packers should have just let him come back instead of starting WWIII. When Favre finally reported they said they would let him compete, and then he said "I don't want to play here anymore." Like a little ****ing baby. The Packers organization was willing to move on with Favre as their starter, and he told them to stick up their ***. Favre said a lot of things he shouldn't have said too. Lets say Tyrone Culver would call out TT and call him a liar. Tyrone would be standing at the Greyhound station downtown. The Packers do not play for Brett Favre. As much as he liked to think so. In the end both sides ****ed themselves. The Packers should have took him back immediately, and Favre shouldn't have been so stubborn after GB apoligized and accepted him back. They all need to grow up and act like men. It's like a bunch of 13 year old girls for christ sake.

Good post Martz. I plan on throwing my support to Aaron as well. Like I said though, there will be an enormous amount of booing with each misstep that Rodgers takes. I won't be one of them. All I'm saying is that the boos will be directed at TT - thru Rodgers occasional errors. Those are the idiots we need to be concerned with. Ripping on TT and the majority of his moves is relatively harmless except when it effedtsa some people out here that actuall value some of the crap I write. To those I say, get a life. I'm just a guy out here with an opinion and I write with ascerbic wit. Again, I write the same way I talk with my buddies when we're together watching any sports. We RIP on each other constantly and laugh it off over beers.

I wish Favre a GREAT season and hope we meet them in the SB. Not gonna happen for either team, but a man can dream! Rodgers does indeed need patience from ALL of us, it's just too bad that there will be drunken Brett Heads screaming garbage at him. Rodgers has done nothing but handle this mess with class. I hope he continues to do so when the REALLY tough times come, and trust me Martz, they're coming.

I agree it is the darkest day in Packer history. What happened to 49er fans with Montana, and shouldn't happen to ANY fans, happened to the Packers.

While I will continue to support everyone who puts on a Green & Gold jersey and our historic Lambeau, I will not be content until that Front Office is gone. Both ends of this situation were handled less than perfect but the Packers were embarrassed when their front office, a group that is supposed to be held to high standards, completely dropped the ball throughout the duration of this process.

Now we're left without our quarterback who has given his career to the Packers, and it's not to retirement. Lambeau wont be the same knowing that #4 is playing somewhere else.

Let the Aaron Rodgers era begin, for good or for bad. We'll see....

Brett Favre retired. We went up to him weekly wanting an update. Everytime he said he was staying retired. We moved on. We drafted a couple of QB's, gave Rodgers the keys to the team, and guess what happened? Good old Brett Favre drama queen shows up wanting to be released after 4 offseasons of Favre's retirement stammering. He put our team in an awful position.

If you were a Green Bay Packers fan you don't boo and boycott and make a situation even worse, thats just completely counterproductive.

If John Elway retired, then came back a few months later, he would be welcomed back. Because the Broncos didn't have anyone at QB to replace him, and Elway didn't drag his feet for 4 years and hold the city of Denver hostage over a retirement decision.

What part of moving on from a 39 year old QB are people not understanding? It's like Ron Jaworski and I are the only ones who get it.

So a 38 year old QB who took your team to the NFC championship game wasn't worthy either.. Age for a QB unlike most positions is a good thing unlike for a RB.. When Rogers in lets say 3-5 years is not what GB wanted then everyone can say I told you so.. Farve IS BETTER than Rogers this year and SHOULD be a Packer he is a Packer and they should have welcomed him back.. If Rogers maybe a AVERAGE QB that comes along every day but a HOF QB on one team is about once and a lifetime!!

Who cares if brett favre retired or not, he came back. End of story you have a guy who was second in MVP running, starting probowl qb, countless records, extreme durability, unmatched heart, loved the community, community loves him and took you to the championship game last year and you tell him that you've moved on?!?!?!?! I can't fathom how anybody can back teddy the tumor here, it is his job to put the best product on the field. It is his job to have the best players out there in order for us to win games. Did he do that, can any of you honestly say that Arod is a better qb and gives us a better chance to win then favre does. Yes or NO? Do we have a better chance to win with Aaron? anybody in there right mind knows the answer is no, with that being the case ted is not doing his job and I don't know about you guys but if I don't do my job I get fired.

I would rather go through an average season of Aaron Rodgers, and see some talent and development than to go into next offseason and have it be year 7 of the 'Brett Favre it's all about me, me, me and my decision' Show. I just want to move on with a new starter. Simple as that. Nobody is going to change my mind.

08-08-2008, 01:45 AM
How in the hell am I putting pressure on Rodgers? The only way that would be possible is if he's reading this ridiculous board. If that's the case, this team is in HUGE trouble.

I started a thread a couple weeks ago about booing Rodgers. I've been going to pro and college games since the 70's and I have never booed a player from my team. What that thread stated was that Rodgers will indeed be booed with every minor mistake. I said that those boos will be directed moreso at Ted Thompson. It is unfair to hammer Rodgers about anything at this point. I feel SORRY for the kid quite frankly as he is in a NO WIN SITUATION that Thompson AND Favre have put him in.

I agree that Favre and Thompson are both to blame for this fiasco. My blame is much more directed at Thompson because he has been here but 3 years and has wanted our SIXTEEN year icon that played to a PROBOWL level last year GONE. The combination from Favre acting the diva and Ted's ego run amok made for a ridiculous situation that could easily have been settled with Favre coming back.

Yes I will support Aaron Rodgers, but I am being honest as always on here when I say that there is a small part of me that wants Rdogers to fail so Thompson is fired. I disagee with our GM on a lot more than the Favre fiasco and have done so since his arrival.

Again, NONE of this is Rodgers fault. He is ina ridiculously impossible situation unless he stays healthy and has better stats than 99% of the first year starters in the history of our great league. I wish the kid luck. He's gonna need it with stacked lines and pressure in his face every game he plays. Grant will be in for a huge test with the kid behind center too. All I said about Rodgers is that I don't think he'll be anything special. Just my opinion after studying this game with passion for 40 years.

Alright well one of your previous posts that I can't look at anymore because it got deleted mentioned that Rodgers better do better than Favre this year. I know your not the only fan that thinks that so apologize for the post directed mainly at you when I am also referring to others. Rodgers doesn't need these fans breathing down his neck. I noticed that you mention that a part of you wants Rodgers to fail to get TT fired. To me that just isn't right. I absolutely hate Jarrett Bush, I think he's a waste of space but if he does well I will support him and I hope he can do well because I know how much the Packers need a guy to step up. I don't question your loyalty, you try to make things realistic even if they are more of a doom and gloom when they don't need to be. I just don't want to come in here during the season and see all these posts and threads about how he incompleted this pass or that just because he's so much under the microscope. Again I'm not just talking to you but many others.

As far as the boo's I still don't agree with it. You should not boo a player unless they aren't giving full effort. I know Rodgers will bring it every sunday. I'll just throw this little thing in there, today Rodgers had an excellent practice after having horrible practices since camp. The whole offense did very well. I have reason to believe, and it might be just a coincidence, that Rodgers along with some of the other players on offense are relieved that they can just finally play without this added burden of Favre.

that makes no sense. Let me get this straight from what your post stated you would rather have average seasons(8-8 through 10-6) then have awesome seasons(11-5 through 16-0), multiple playoff appearences, and chances at a super bowl? all because at the end of a season Brett questions whether or not he should return?? and the part of "and see some talent and development" are you implying that Arod has more talent then Brett?!?!?! you should start reading your posts after you type them and before you post them.

I'm not saying I would rather have medicore seasons and deal put up with Aaron Rodgers, I believe even with Brett Favre at QB we were set this year to drop off a bit, it's pretty logical considering how easy a schedule we had last year, coupled with no major injuries. This year we have a tougher schedule, tougher divisional competition and we will likely encounter some injuries we didn't have to deal with last year.

Since i'm predicting this sort of 'drop off' year, where we win fewer games because of some different circumstances, and since I think our chances aren't that great of winning Superbowl, i'd rather get to see Aaron Rodgers, get a look and see if it's there, see some development over the year. If not, oh well, Brett would for all we know retire at the end of the year and leave us dry anyway, and Rodgers would leave.

Either way, Ted Thompson's the fall guy and 'screwed up'.

The minute Thompson put himself in the national spotlight was the minute he sealed his fate. Any good GM stays out of the spotlight and really is only recognized on the national level after their team wins the SB. As it stands now, the Packers have to win this year. Even now, many people have referred to MaCarthy as a puppet in order to place blame on Thompson, thats a great way for a teams head coach to be viewed.

The best was when he would come to Chicago. We would play golf all day then head into the city wearing suits. We had our rap down pretty good. We would tell waitresses and bartenders that we were Philly bar/restaurant owners and were in town interviewing architects for our first bar to be built in Chicago. Within minutes, drinks were free and we had people wanting to work for us when we got the joint up and running. Great way to get laid!

Best trade EVER! I am a huge packers fan and over the last 3 off-season's I lost all respect for Farve, yeah he's an okay QB but he ain't elite. He can't play in the post-season, he gets too drained. Making everyone wait on him in the off-season is WRONG! He should have never retired if he wanted to come back, I mean the packers had to draft...remember! He is a jerk for doing this to Aaron Rodgers! I believe in Aaron because he has sat back for the last 3 years, learned and now will be able to perform. Seeing Favre gone is good, because that means the packers can move forward with the franchise. No one seems to give Rodgers a chance because he's "always hurt", but the truth is he isn't. Yeah he gets tweaked up a bit, but the training staff never rushed him back to health because he was the #2 QB, he is the future and they didn't want to put him at risk to screw up his career. If i remember correctly he played beter than Farve on TWO separate occasions(Patriot game and Dallas Game) So give the kid a break and let him play without the mean chants. You know what i see, a lot of none-packer fans, but instead Farve fans. If you cannot trust Ted Thompson who in 2 years improved the Pack from 4-12 to 13-3 then you are no packer fan. If i recall Farve was there both years. So that means Farve is human and he did make mistakes, just like Aaron Rodgers will. Its part of the game.

When you're second in MVP balloting, you're elite. You're right though about Rodgers. It's his time and we need to support him regardless what you think of management.

I'm liking this stuff. :clap:

if we lose the opening game to the viqueens.....I'm sticking to college football. Brett Favre is the Green Bay Packers...whether 24 or 39. This incident just proved that the last remaining peaceful organization has turned into another corporation that pushes players around. "it's just business" is a bunch of crock.

Ugh, again your making it seem like Brett Favre was an innocent pawn in all this. This wasn't a case of the 'big bad corporate machine' moving out a player or pushing around players.

It pretty much comes down to, we want to start the 25 year old guy over the 39 year old guy that could very well leave at the end of the year.

I am a PackerBacker and thats why I want them to suck this year. With TT at the helm we will never be great again, if we suck he will be gone and then we can move on. Oh and Hawkeye, Karma isn't real. You speak without thinking, though I do appreciate your insightful look into "what if's" I'll be ok on my own. Dear god, please let Aaron Rodgers break his throwing arm this pre-season. Amen. look at that, I still have functional legs!!!!!

Ted Thompson left Seattle, 3 months later the Seahawks season started and they went to a Superbowl with his roster.
Last year we were one game away from the Superbowl with Ted Thomspn's fledgling roster.

Ted Thompson has greatness running through his veins.

I dont think that you understand much about how a football team is run if that is what you really think. Ted Thompson has built a young and very talented team. The only place that they have to go is up.

Only 9 starters on the Seahawks' Superbowl XL roster were drafted by Thompson.

Probably a little excessive to say that greatness runs through his veins.

I think your just talking without really realizing what your saying. Because of this one move you feel that TT should be gone. I feel that TT isn't the best GM because he's a horrible negotiator but I do see the positives to him. He did find us Ryan Grant who looks very promising. He has built this team around in less than 3 years which is very remarkable. I was figuring it would at least take 5 years. To cut TT loose and find another GM wouldn't be a very good move because I still remember the days when Sherman was here. However, if we could find another Ron Wolf I'd be for it but their aren't many out there like him.

Buck up you sissies, it's not like your mom just died...seriously? You CRIED when Favre got traded? REALLY, dude? It's not that bad...we'll be okay. I'm sick of hearing so called "Packers Fans" that are deciding to switch loyalty over this, while at the same time becoming hypocrites by denouncing management over their lack of Loyalty...get over it. You'll wake up this season and get over it...we're fine. This is not he end of the world...

Living in the NYC area I am getting to hear first hand from Jets fans, NY talk radio and the newspapers how excited they are to get Favre.

I am actually enjoying it, this area totally ignored Favre and the Packers (even bad mouthed him) and to see them swooning over him is giving me a great laugh every day.

Radio ad from deep voice guy ..."From Green Bay to Gang Green, the new home of the legend Brett Favre" running every 30 minutes.

Full back page and half of front page of New York Post and Daily News. People in the grocery stores.....I hear "Favre" as I walk through the store. I think I am getting a small taste of how it would have been to live near Green Bay.

I look forward to hearing all of the talk and media coverage etc etc this year and hope he and the Jets have a great season.

I've been a Packer fan since 1972 (remember Scott Hunter, Jerry Tagge, Jim Delgado, old John Hadl, Lynn Dickey was pretty good) and will continue to be one for the rest of my life. Even if they go on another 25 year stretch of not winning a Super Bowl.

Just some ramblings...thanks for reading!!

I also lived through the Scott Hunter, Jerry Tagge and the rest of the scrubs minus Lynn Dickey of course. Rodgers is NOT one of the scrubs. The Pack is fine and guys like us who had to live through the 70's and 80's know it. These kids don't know what losing is....try about 20 years of it and get back to me. I know losing and this is not one of those teams or organizations. We are Fine people.

Well put Soup!

Players, coaches and management come and go. I am, always have been, and always will be a Packer fan. This mess was not even close to being the "Worst and Darkest Day in Packer History."

I read that Rodgers said when he pulls up to the gate to type in his code he can hear someone yelling "f#@$ you" at him. Thats not a true Packer fan and I'm really sick of hearing people say "I hope they do bad this year" or "I hope Rodgers sucks". I have seen in a forum or heard from so many Packer fans and it seems like for every 1 fan who is reallllllly down about the situation there is 1 fan who is atleast somewhat positive. Listen, we're known to be some of the most passionate fans. Lets try to put that into the positive. Brett WAS a huge part of our team for so long. But now we're moving on and with a VERY good team. We should be pumped guys! Lets start to get really excited for Rodgers, the season, and years to come with this team. GO PACK!

This is my first time back in the Green Bay Packers Forum in about a week. I have been devestated with the loss of my hero Brett Favre to the New York Jets. I will still be rooting on the Packers, still questioning TT's decision daily, and rooting on the New York Jets and Brett Favre as well.

Agreed.
I will also pull for my Packers, but I will always wonder why not 1 more year #4.

I don't know. I think the franchise is in good shape. Favre did make things impossible for management. I've grown a bit weary of his antics. I think the team really just needs an efficient QB and not a gunslinger anymore. Fine by me. Time to stop living in the past.

The Favre era has to become to an end one day anyway. After 3 years as backup and drafted in the first round, Aaron Rodgers has to come out.

But I cannot understand one thing : his lack of preparation !

Aaron Rodgers spent 3 years in the organization learning about the offense and 3 years behind a superstar Brett Favre. How could you explain, is lack of preparation ?

He had nothing to show in the first two preseason games. He came flat and empty.

Mike McCarthy fooled all the fans when repeating all summer long his QB was Aaron Rodgers. When you hold that kind of words its because you know Rodgers is ready for the job.

Surprise he is not. WOW ! Be prepared for a long long and long season.

favre didn't have any "antics" until TT screwed the team after the 2004 season. for 13 seasons favre was the perfect player never complaining, never demanding more money... It wasn't until thompson took a playoff team that was 4th and 26 away from going to the NFC champioship and dismantled it that favre started having "antics". Of course favre couldn't decide if he wanted to play any more. he wanted to play football, but he wanted to play play on a team with a "win now" attitude. Thompson was quite contenct to suck for a couple years in order to have success down the road.

if you were a HOF quaterback coming off a 30 TD, 4000 yd season, you were one freak play away from the NFC champioship, and the new GM said:

A) let's dismantle the Oline, and play three rookies

B) let's spend our top draft pick on a player to replace you, and will be of no help to the team until you are gone.

C) let's not get anybody in free agency to help our team.

I think you would have a hard time not having "antics" too.
