Favre leaves camp

Well, so much for the Brett Favre comeback. It lasted all of one day. After meeting with head coach Mike McCarthy for about ten hours, Favre walked out of camp Tuesday morning. McCarthy made it clear that Aaron Rodgers is the starting quarterback and that while Favre on the roster makes the team better, it is only because Favre gives the team depth at the crucial quarterback position. The Packers have not backed down on their commitment to Rodgers and right or wrong, it is what it is. Jump on board or shut up.

Even if you hate McCarthy and Ted Thompson, how can you not respect them for standing by their convictions? That being Aaron Rodgers gives the team a better chance to win the Super Bowl than Brett Favre does. I agree. Might not happen this year, Favre didn’t win a Super Bowl his first year as a starter, either, and really, when you look at the players Favre had around him at that stage of his career, he should have won more than one Super Bowl. Rodgers also has a good team around him as he becomes a starter in his fourth year, the difference is he spent three years on the bench instead of on the field. That fact will be overlooked for sure by the media and fans the first time Rodgers throws three picks in a game.

The saga is finally over. Wherever Favre ends up playing I wish him well, except when or if he plays against the Green Bay Packers. Hopefully the Packers can get some compensation for what it is still a good player, but in the end if he won’t practice and he won’t agree to a trade, they will have to release him. That probably won’t happen until the final cut-down.

Today was a good day. I’m back baby! Go Pack!

    JeffN-

    Am I emotional about this? Yes? Should I not drunk post? Yes. But way too many of you people are all idiots.

    Fact: We had a very legitimate chance to win the Super Bowl this year.

    Fact: We no longer do

    Would I rather have 1 Super Bowl and then five season of 6-10 over 6 straight wild card berths and 1st round exits? Of course. All that matters is rings.

    Speculation: We had a very legitimate chance to win the Super Bowl this year.

    Speculation: We no longer do.

    Fact: Lew does not know what the word “fact” means.

    Lew, you admit to making emotional comments, you drunk post on this forum, and then proceed to tell all of us that we are idiots. Then you take it a step further and think we are all suppose to listen to what you say on this blog.

    I hope you would agree that you don’t make any sense.

    All that matters is not “Rings”. My gosh they don’t come every year to the same team do they? That’s a “fact”! Wow, now it’s down to this level of name calling. Oh well, been there and back before. Kind of glad we didn’t have Gore’s Internet back in the days of Bengtson, Devine, and Starr (coaching, of course). This team doesn’t compare to them.

    Alright, enough is enough,., PACKER FANS!! we have to remeber that the whole QB issue in GB is not and was not Arod’s descission. We are Packer Fans ! Whom ever takes the snaps must be supported if we expect this club to sucessful. If you people love Brett that much, Great, move to New York with him.,. Brett saved this franchise and personally I’m thankful for that. But MM and TT made a choise after once again for the 4th year in a row Brett said that he was going to retire,, what else the the orginization supposed to do?? Go after a back-up QB for Arod. His is our future now and with out our support he will fail.. SUPPORT HIM !!!!!!!
