    He cried because the team/org he loyally respected couldn't deliver him the horses he needed to get another SB MVP, he's selfish. It was all cued up for him to be the conquering hero but he feel on his face. A younger upstart beat him in his own crib.
    Randy Moss is Brady's date for the next 3 years. How many years could Brett give him? One, two. He's just too old for Moss. Brady gave Moss 23 TDs. Don't even go there Brett.
    Good nite sweet prince.

    I knew he wouldn't stay retired long...

    Three days after a conference call with Green Bay Packers team officials on Tuesday in which quarterback Brett Favre emphatically expressed his desire to play in 2008, Favre on Friday formally asked for his contractual release from the Packers in a letter, sources close to Favre and the team said.
    The letter was sent by Favre's agent, James "Bus" Cook, via overnight mail on Thursday and arrived at the Packers facility Friday morning.
    Cook, on behalf of Favre, expressed a desire to have an amicable parting, as the Packers have been reluctant to embrace his return. Favre announced his retirement in early March.

    During a conference call on Tuesday that included Packers general manager Ted Thompson, Packers coach Mike McCarthy, Favre and Cook, sources say that the quarterback stated emphatically that he wanted to play again.

    Either Brett spells his name wrong or everybody pronounces it wrong. It should either be spelled Farve or pronounced Favor. :gun1:

    Millen should hire him as player/mentor for Stanton and as a motivational figure to the entire Lions organization...including Millen himself.

    Fast facts: The Lions can't afford his contract, so no trade. If he's released, we couldn't afford his new contract. If he did come here, which I would support wholeheartedly, I couldn't say goodbye to Kitna fast enough. But Favre IS NOT A MENTOR. He made that clear when Rodgers was drafted.

    Carolina (no matter what you hear in the media) IS NOT INTERESTED. Chicago could be a front runner, but their team is not as good as the Pack. Bucs could be first in line with all the ties to Gruden, WCO and so on.

    I didn't know that. That would help to explain his waffling about retiring...he loves football, but has no desire to coach.

    Pack won't release him. He can be back-up.
    He's like every other tired vet. - wants to skip 3 a days.

    That's another misnomer. You don't pay a QB $12M a year to backup a guy who hasn't hardly played, just as you don't sit Billups at the end of the bench for Rodney before the season started last year. Strahan skipped training camp, and he played just fine. Favre knows that offense inside out after 17 years. He just needs to be in shape.

    I am leaning toward backing Favre on this. The Packers have been trying to force Favre out the last 3 years. Why draft a QB with a first round pick when you got Favre at the time still on contract for another 6 years? Favre has earned the right to play as long as he wants too.

    If I was Green Bay, I'd be open to trading Brett to even a team in their division. Instead of ebay, call it gBay. I bet winner of Chicago and the Vikings would grossly overpay, where they suffer the consequences for the next 18 years. Or better yet, trade him to the Lions. They couldn't win even if they had Brett. It would be a win win solution for Green Bay if the Lions won gBay.
