Bottom line: Will Brett Favre play in 2008?
Poll: Will Favre Play In 2008?
Thanks wide right, for merging the threads.
No he needs to stay away already.
No. Not in 08, 09, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18...maybe 2019. maybe.
i don't see a who cares option, so I didn't vote
no he is done and the sooner the goobered articles about his agent wanting him to come back or former teammates saying he is going to come back the better
He needs to stay away. It's pretty sad though that the franchise that made him a legend doesn't even want him. Then again, I look at it as the Packers are moving on with the future which is aaron Rodgers. This Brett Favre BS is not even fair to Rodgers. He's got two years remaining of a five year deal and he hasn't even started a game yet in his career. Just when he thinks he's getting his chance, BOOM, this drama pops up.
I was going to post another one about his family thinking there was a 50-50 chance and that he's staying in shape but feels unwanted by Thompson and has the past couple of years.
No, he is done. Bottom line. End it.
His family will want him to play until he's dead.
Yeah, that would be a better option, lol.
I think he'll play in some sort of part-time league, but the NFL? Nope.
the real question is will he play with himself, His wife is betting yes as she has obviously turned into the seahag from popeye cartoons.
Okay...yesterday I said no freaking way. Today I am doing a 180 and saying yes. He's coming back, just not with Green Bay. Let's look at the facts...that we know...
Favre has not filed his retirement papers. According to NFL Radio, Strahan has. It's not uncommon for players to wait, however, it's somewhat relevant.
Favre's Agent contacted the Packers about coming back. They denied him. He asked for Favre's release.
Favre's Agent isn't just going all rogue on Favre, he's telling Cook to do this...so something is going on.
So if Favre does come back to play in somewhere other than Green Bay...which again, I think there is ZERO percent chance he comes back to the Packers. One, they'd have one of the bigger distractions of the decade on their hands. Two, they'd have to go into the locker room and tell half the team they'd have to take a pay cut and the other half that they are no longer needed with Favre's $12M cap number...I think the most logical fit would be Tampa Bay.
Tampa is on the brink of being a serious contender, they are in the south and in warm weather, both of which Favre would love. Favre knows the offense and the coaching staff there very well and has an extremely good relationship with Gruden. I think if anywhere, he lands there. I could see him going to the Panthers as an outside possibility. Minnesota and Chicago...no way.
So right now, I'll say yes...he's coming back...just don't know when. Before 2019.
Oh, please. You care. You care a lot, vikings fan.
Yeah, Favre's agent asked the Packers to release him and was DENIED.
So technically, come the first day of camp, Favre can show up and start getting paid and really eff the Packers.
No...He's still on the reserved/retired list, they don't have to let him practice. Their options are
1) activate him and play him and lose money
2) release him and save money
3) trade him and save money
4) activate him and use him as Rodgers' backup and lose money
