Dear God, please don't let him end up on the Bucs! Jeff Garcia is the answer, not Favre!

I don't have anything personal against Favre, but changing his mind about retirement after the NFL draft wasn't a nice thing to do to the new quarterback (Matt Flynn) drafted by the Packers.
Even though Flynn wouldn't have been a starter--he will most likely now be completely cut. Too bad he'll have to pay for Favre's "prima donna" change of mind. Nice guy-that Matt Flynn-deserved more respect. Go LSU!!! Oh, and I don't want Favre in Tampa either.

Here in Minnesota were pretty much on the fence on this one. But it would REALLY suck if Garcia loses his job. Unbeleivable.

I just din't see Farve being a logical addition to the Bucs. The was great, but he's old and cries a lot.

Farve would be a distraction all the way around. The team chemistry would be in a turmoil, the players wouldn't know who to be loyal to from day to day. It's a slap in the face to Garcia, who gets enough of them.

Meanwhile Farve doesn't know our system, and by the time he learns it, he'll be old enough to need a walker and be crying about retirement again.

I can't believe anyone in their right mind would seriously consider the addition of Farve to the Bucs.

I see no up side at all; by the time he's becomes familiar enough to be effective, he'll be going into retirement again amid another flood of tears. Give me a break.

And the bottom line - Brett Farve will always be a Packer, he'll never be a real Buc.

Wise up Gruden, go home with the quarterback that brought you to the division title dance.

Lose his job long enough till he retires and Garcia leaves or retires then TB gets nothing,so if your TB,get a 2 year agreement in writting.

Better yet send him to Minn.Ok he knows the Packers plays inside and out,so you dont want to send him there,but,he will be so fired up,he will throw INT;s and overthrows all the 1st quarter, then the rest of the game,blitz and nail him all game,pound him around and see what happens.

Right you are. If the Bucs screw Garcia for Farve, I think they'll end up getting exactly what that sort of unethical behavior deserves.

The Bucs even considering it goes to say a lot about the character (or lack thereof) of those that manage, coach and own the team.

My next door neighbor told me she would crawl over one mile of sharp carpet nails on her hands and knees just to hear Jon Gruden fart over a short wave radio.

I dont understand any of these comments, I personally would LOVE to have favre here. The chemistry wouldn't be effected because football players want to win, and we have a better chance of winning with favre. Also with favre we know were getting a guy who will start all 16 games behind center for us, unlike garcia who gets hurt and misses at least 4 games a year

Who are we kidding, the Buc's have a long history of screwing over players & coach's, so why not do it one more time and bring Favre into the mix, at least we may have a better shot of getting past game 1 of the playoffs. I like Jeff Garcia but he does tend to get hurt a lot and since he & Brett are around the same age, bring in the more seasoned/proven QB, either way we most likely will be needing a younger QB in 2 years.
Bad choice

Please let this story go. Let us know when he steps on the field. I feel like I'm watching the VIEW each day with this Favre crap. It's the new Tim Tebow story everyday, I hate both of them now that you cover them Everyday. Tebow and Favre fatigue.

Listen to me. All you need to know about Favre is: Madden 2009. He's on the cover. Enough said.

Please let my Bucs save the draft picks and the drama that will come with getting Favre.

Can't Buc fans see thyat it's all about Brett?

I fervently hope the Farve Media Circus doesn't move to Florida. Farve is bigger than Gruden, Bigger than Garcia, bigger than our exciting young linemen, bigger than Tampa, bigger than the Bucs.

Can't you all see by what's going on right now in Green Bay, that if this shabby show moves to Tampa, it will be the end of the Buc's season? Green Bay wants to get rid of Farve because he doesn't know when or even if to quit and he is damaging their team.

Farve isn't the victim, the Packers are. The crap that Farve has pulled on them has really damaged their team, and Farve just merrily goes along with his "it's all about me" attitude.

Frankly, he's washed up and who gives a crap if he ever plays another down?

I just hope he doesn't bring his crying jags, self-centered emotional and disruptive nonsense to the Bucs. Farve isn't a woman, he needs to be made to stand by the decision he made and which has alreadt effected every fan and player in Green Bay.

When is enough Farve crap enough, when does somebody whisper in his ear that it's time to be a man about it and really let go, instead of acting like a jilted bride at the alter?

Favre is a great quarterback, and I would totally love to see him come to Tampa Bay....if the Bucs didn't already have 7,000 quarterbacks on roster, and one that already knows the system and had some success last year.

Favre doesn't give the Bucs a better chance of winning than Garcia. If anything, bringing Favre here effectively walls off half the playbook on offense. Favre ain't gonna learn a whole new offense after this many years in the league. They'll have to basically pick Favre's 10 or 15 favorite plays and run them over and over, all the while putting up with Favre's annoying gunslinger mentality.

He can't run or scramble very well anymore, and his decision-making isn't what it used to be. Garcia threw like six INTs all season, which is what the Bucs offense needs to be successful - a QB that doesn't make stupid mistakes and turnovers. Not guaranteed 15-to-20+ picks a season.

Would he have some great games? Probably. But he'd have enough stinkers and impact team chemistry enough to cause the team to backslide from where they were last year.

He's not worth the hassle. All this crap he brought on himself by waffling EVERY SINGLE SEASON about retiring. He's done it for about four seasons now, and it is completely unnecessary and inconsiderate to the franchise that made him a star. He could have at least told management "Don't spend any first or second round picks on QBs for the next few years, I'm nowhere near ready to retire yet.". Instead he let them draft Rodgers, then Martin, now Brohm and Flynn. It's lunacy, and the fault is his.

The jerk.

Fauvre is a hall of fame pitcher, so why is everyone so upset? He has a contract and is entitled to change his mind about retiring.

The team needs to trade him to ANY team that would have him, and the media needs to end this long running torture.

Waterboarding is less intrusive than the media.
