T- Joke with throw 3 INT's and fumble twice. GB will put 11 men in the box and hold All Day to 43 yards. QB is our weakest link...

Last thing I will say about Favre. He was supposedly offer this same deal back in March and either turned it down or said I'll think about. Then he says he wants to not just play, but start. Period. Oh, but I don't want to start for any old team or even a team like the Jets, who would have a very good chance of making the playoffs IF he were there. No, if he can't start for the Pack, he wants to start against them.
This a grudge fight between him and a moronic GB management. Period. And he's been using the Vikes as leverage against them. If he REALLY wants to play and start, if it's all about the game, why not consider the Jets? No, he has shown his hand. The fact that he is now even reconsidering this deal means he:
A) is full of **** and has been all along!
B) no longer has the will to fight!
C) is one stupid waffling son of a ****!
D) is all of the above!
Whatever the case maybe, ask yourself: "Self, is this really the kind of guy you want as your QB, your leader of the offense, the guy who would take us to the promised land?" No. Leave his sorry **** exactly where God left Moses - watching from the bleachers.
Yes, I would take him because he's winner. He threw 4 TD's on the day his father died. That took heart. Last I looked Frave has one superbowl ring and the Vikes zip.

Favre is THE ONLY way the Vikes will ever go to a Superbowl.

Give it up Mike. He HAD heart. That was years ago Mike (Mr. Big SPAM). He WAS a winner. He's slowly but surely giving up on himself, but is afraid to admit it. If I were him, I wouldn't take the 2.5 Mil/yr for the next 10 yrs. I would just retire and use what is left of my unfortunately tainted image and run against Gene Upshaw and take over the NFL Players Union. I would be back on top, could stick it to the GB buttheads and GOD-El every chance I got for fucking with me and rake in 7 Mil/yr (what Upshaw gets now) or more for the next 20-30 yrs.

If the PP and Strib can't limit their coverage of this dull melodrama, at least change your names to the Milwaukee Journal East and West.

think back to last year, late in season Packs on a role, going to playofffs, game in Chicago, it`s dam cold and windy, Favrers huddled up hands in his jersey pockets between plays, nose is running face is red he doesn`t want to be there, they lose that game then smae thing for Giants game while Manning wasn`t even cold. As we get older we can`t take the cold. Thats why he needs to go to a warm area team or even here in the dome he`ll have some great years left and cut down on the number of games he has to play in the relly cold situation, ya I know he`ll still have a couple each year.

I think it's BEYOND pathetic that the commissioner has not signed the reinstatement papers. He's interferring with a football players' free will to come back and play. I think football fans should be outraged. Let the chips fall where they may. Obviously Favre isn't as big of a fan of Green Bay football AS the GB fans are of Favre. Who cares. Let the man play. It isn't Green Bay's legacy....it's Favre's legacy. The Commissioner should be FIRED
He hasn't signed them cuz Favre told him to hold off..this will be an 11th hour kind of thing..and it is all about the Fans there..he loves his fans and his teammates..from what Mooch says, he still wants to be a Packer through and thru..the only way he can stick it to Thompson and his ego is palying for the Vikes..that's the only reason he wants to come here..don't drag his fans into it..he's not that big of an idiot and he won't betray his fans..he's already said it's Packers mgmnt he wants to stick it to..not the fans...besides what if he came here and revered back to interception king again?? Then all the Pack fans would say he came here just to screw the Vikes and laugh all the way..this is about Favre and GB management..not the fans..if it were up to his fans..he'd be in Packers camp right now and he knows that.

Favre should go to the jets because he fits good with them. Favre just give the jets a shot if u go to bucs u will not start but if u go to jets u will be a starter there.
