Default Re: Favre's possible return

yes, this rumor actually seems credible to me. Even in his press conference he seemed like he didn't want to retire really.

I was listening to ESPN radio last night, and they interviewed a retired teamate of Favre's. Apparently the rumor is Favre wants to come back to the packers OR be released from his contract. The Packers are unwilling to do either.

They might be seeking to trade his rights away. should be interesting.

FWIW I agree he should just stay retired.

If I was the GM of the Packers, I'd trade Rogers. Get what I could for the young, but talented unproven QB, probably get a 2nd and 3rd round pick for the kid. Bring back Favre, let him go for it, that keeps the Fan Base happy, also, you've got Braum on the roster just in case. We all know Rogers isn't going to do well after having lived in Brett's shadow for so long. Take a chance, dump the kid off, get some future return on him and then let the Old Man give it one more go. The fans won't mind if they go 4-12 this season, and as far as Rogers is concerned, not too many Packers fans will be calling for the GM's head for letting the kid go. He's been on the roster so long as a back up already and has been injured several times.

Exactly, you make my point for me. The guy gets hurt in practice and doesn't see any real playing time. But he's supposed to be the "heir apparent" I say dump his sorry butt now while he's still marketable. If he plays as QB next season and they stink it up, he won't be picked up off the waiver wires.

Rogers looked pretty good off the bench against the Cowboys last year. I'd say Brett Favre did him a HUGE favor by sticking around and letting Rogers adapt into the system slowly. I expect he'll be a pretty decent NFL QB because he initially wasn't ready to play at this level and sitting helped him avoid the curse of David Klingler/Tim Couch et al.

Favre downplays comeback talk as rumors swirl

Brett Favre insists that all this talk about his potential return to the Packers is just that.

After buzz about a comeback surfaced Wednesday, the retired Green Bay quarterback told the Biloxi Sun Herald (Miss.) that "it's all rumor."
