WE ALL LOVE BRETT AND WE KNOW HE IS THE INFAMOUS "GUNSLINGER" WITH A PLACE IN CANTON ALREADY RESERVED. I AM SO HAPPY TO SAY THAT REGARDLESS OF THE INTERCEPTIONS SUNDAY, BRETT STILL HAS IT! HE IS AGAIN OVER 3,000 YDS AND A BOAT LOAD OF TOUCHDOWNS AND YES A BOAT LOAD OF INT'S. WHATS NEW? WE CHEESE HEADS WOULD BE PROUD TO HAVE HIM BACK AGAIN FOR ONE OR TWO MORE SEASONS WITH A YOUNG BUT MORE EXPERIENCED TEAM. I CANNOT BELIEVE THE RECORD REALLY SHOWS THE TALENT COACH M AND THOMPSON HAVE BROUGHT IN THIS YEAR. ALL IN ALL IF THE GREAT GUNSLINGER WILL DO ALL OF US THE HONOR OF LEADING THIS SUPER TALENTED TEAM ANOTHER COUPLE YEARS I WOULD BE IN HEAVEN...BRETT IS SMART, HEALTHY AND STILL HAS A ROCKET.. HIS TEAMMATES WILL BE ON FIRE NEXT YEAR, WATCH!!NOT PRETTY SUNDAY BUT ITS A WIN!! GO BRETT!!!

Sorry, but a poll over the weekend indicated as many fans want Favre to go as there are who want him to stay (46%). The remaining 8% want him to come back as a spectator only.

Jez Strong, just cool it. It's not a referendum. If the fans were in charge of who the QB was, Favre would never have played a down for GB. We'd have gone with Ty Detmer.

Obviously Favre didn't have a good game yesterday. But the week before he was incredible. If anything, this is a test for McCarthy. McCarthy needs to reel Favre in for the last two games. When Favre has played under a leash (like all QBs in this league do), he's been great. McCarthy needs to grow a pair and tell Favre to do things right. Favre's imagination is bigger than his ability, and any starting NFL QB should have as much confidence. But McCarthy needs to put his foot down, take control. I view Favre's on-and-off again insanity as a lack of authority by McCarthy. When you view it that way, maybe you have to wonder whether McCarthy is the guy. Maybe he's the problem. Favre will eventually go, but if McCarthy can't assert his authority now, what makes you think he'll be able to do so in the future?

You mean like the Bears going with how many QB's over the years who've lost to Brett? NO wonder you want him to leave, you're still scared of him!

Imagine if the Pack beat the Vikes and then the Bears. They'll be in the playoffs for sure.

Bears are going down fast having nearly blown it against Tampa.

I think you misunderstood my comment PD. The fellow made a comment that we all love Favre, etc., etc, and I was just pointing out that not everyone feels the same. Truthfully, TT never listens to the fans and will do whatever it takes to win including retiring Favre.

Strong do you honestly beleive Ted would retire Favre? I commented before if Favre takes until mid march or near the draft and hasnt made a choice Ted should make it for him,but i honestly dont know if Ted would cut Favre or say Brett its time to go. If Ted told Favre its time to go, and favre wants to play 1 more season, what do we do,,,let him play 1 more,cut him or do we trade him to a team that has a 1 or 2 year window for a superbowl.

If the team decided they no longer want Favre, then I believe Bob Harlin will talk him into retirement. It will be done in a way so that the public will never know he was asked to step down. Why Harlin? Because he personally handled all contract discussions with Brett over the years, and he has a great sense of Packer history. Listen, any decision about Favre will have to be approved by Harlin even though he is no longer president. Brett will never play for another team once he leaves the Packers. He has no interest in doing that, and no team that has a shot at the Super Bowl would want him. That's silly talk.

Oh right, sorry about that Strong.

In my opinion, TT needs to do his job unencumbered by fan sentiment. The guy is paid to do a job and part of that job is ensuring that McCarthy has the best talent possible to play against other teams. Arguments for dumping Favre because it would free up cap space are just nonsense because we already carried excessive cap space this year. The only reason TT should dump Favre is if he thinks we're better off with someone else (i.e., Rodgers).

You're right PD. Canning Favre to free up cap space is not a good idea. However you must compare performance to what a player makes, and I don't think many QBs would be paid $13.5 million (next year) for what Brett has shown lately. It's going to be an interesting off season, and Rodgers injury will make it all that more interesting. If in fact AR is the guy and he was healthy, I think Brett would be on the bubble. Martin is my guy and he'll get his chance in the mini camps to prove he can do it.

Sorry Strong, but people who want change are much more likely to respond to a poll than people who are happy with the way things are. Your poll isn't very accurate.

I can't believe anyone wouldn't want Favre back next year? Favre has played well this year considering that he has a whole new coaching staff, new offense, and limited weapons. Aaron Rodgers might not be ready by the begining of the season, and Martin is still to raw (it takes most QB's 3 years to learn this offense).Favre will get 11.5 million next year and the Packers will still have 30 Million next year to spend. Since they didn't spend the full 30 mil they had this year, I don't see cap space as a problem. MM and TT have both said they want Favre back next year, and since they make the decisions there is a good chance Favre will be back.

Did I hear that Favre was named as alternate to the Pro Bowl? If that is true and that the Packer Org is talking about bringing him back for 07 ... deal with it and stop with The Favre bashing.

The Pack will make the playoffs in 07 with Favre at QB. Sorry Vikes, Bears and Lion fans ...

Can't wait to hear your belly aching next year at this time ...

First of all kidflash, it does not take 3 yrs to learn any offense. Hell Cutler, Young, Leinart & Romo and even Joey Harrington are all playing better than Favre. What's there to want back? Personally I think Favre has played poorly, and some fans and the media want to blame his "supporting cast". His supporting cast has nothing to do with crazy game losing passes into heavy coverage. It's like they said of Favre on Sunday. He may still have the body of a 22 year old, but the problem is he still has the head of a 22 year old. You think he would have learned by now. I say put a fork in him, he's done. We cannot win with him, let's move on.

In most cases I would agree with you, but here we are talking about Brett Favre. No doubt he brings in more revenue than it costs the team to pay him. Whether or not you like Favre, I think everyone has to agree that he's one of the top NFL attractions and revenue generators. So when you take that into consideration, and also realize that the Packers are in cap heaven under TT, there's no economic argument for unloading Favre. In fact, he could carry a clipboard next season and it would still make sense to keep him (assuming we continue to have lots of cap space).

You are right, they did say that Kidflash. But I suspect it was more of a decision to "get the monkey off their back" in regards to the Favre retirement question. If they were to equivocate on the Favre question, it just would have fueled more media speculation on Favre's retirement. I don't think anyone wanted that.

Still, I don't see why they wouldn't want Favre back next year. McCarthy's had success with Favre, and Rodgers won't be ready to go on day one of 2007.

Hahaha...I'll give you Cutler, Young, Leinart, and Romo as a matter of opinion, but there's no objective way to conclude that Harrington is playing better than Favre.
