During the week while listening to Kirwan on Sirius as I often do... Kirwan said more than a few times he didnt think Favre would end up here. He said there were reasons that "I'd rather not talk about". He said this more than once. Perhaps a personal issue with coaching? Im totally guessing here. He never did expound  on this supposed issue though.

 Â   Yeah, after compensation is agreed to, another team might well swoop in with a better offer. That's why I don't think it's a good idea to dump Garcia. Keep'em both, at least until Favre shows he's committed to playing here. After all, Garcia, like Favre, doesn't have a lot of options as far as going somewhere to be a starter... Definitely very tricky waters to navigate...

It's no secret that Brett's preference is the Vikings. That's not going to happen. So Brett's going to have to decide whether or not he wants to play out the string in New York, take a shot at a championship in Tampa, or just go away.

At this point, I don't really care any more. If we're not good enough for Favre, frak him. Let him get killed in New York or sit on his tractor in Mississippi.

His agent started contacting teams months ago. You don't think he knew Brett was coming back?

give them a conditional pick... that escalates to the 2nd round at best... Green Bay should be happy about that! that a 2nd draft pick they didn't have before. its a win-win for Green Bay. God, I hope this happens,


escalate it to a 1st if Favre wins a ring. I'd gladly give up a 1st for a Super Bowl.

Favre is cutting the Packers a lot more slack than he should be. His wife and his agent are telling him to play hardball.

I'm with ya Krazy. A ring for the 32nd pick? That's a steal.

So he had months to see what teams would be interested and only 3 teams showed interest.  I find that hard to believe when half of the teams need a Quarterback.  He probably speculated that Favre may return, but I don’t think he contacted teams.
Heck, you’d think a deal would have gotten done by now.  Favre is an ass.  As Buc Fans hoping he’d come here, we were the only fans on his side, but now he is being a prima dona and clearly just wants to play for the Vikings as he would have sent his papers in already.  Screw him.  I wanted him here, but give me a break.  He may not have even been good in our offense…

You may be right about that.

Somethings gotta give whether we are players in that or not.  Ted and GB do not want him there.  He wants to play.  But its obvious he wants to play where he wants to play.  I assme NFC north because the offenses are easy to pick up and he can step in with no consequences.  What some of you view as a positive may be a slight negative. That is Brett's "willingness" to learn new terminology and spends hours catching up plus the grind of camp.  Everyone leapped to the conclusion that his familiarity with the WCO was a plus, but JG's playbook is different.  It's not a free wheelling kind of atmosphere.  Sure the concepts are the same but some nuances could pose problems.

We have almost everything he's looking for.  A coach that will love him, close to home in Mississippi, money is really no object whether he restructures or not, grass on the field for his aging knees, nice running game, up and coming oline to protect.  Our receivers are arguably a question mark but I think they are adequate.  Heck may get Joey's hamstring all well if he knew Bret was throwing to him. So if this is the logical choice (or at least the most logical I can think of for a chance at winning), then why does Brett need/want more options?  Or is GB trying to foil the whole thing even feelin the visit to Tampa would be an ugly scene for the organization?

Without Carl Nix it feels like our running game just took a death blow to the face!
