He could even open his season at Lambeau. Somehow I suspect that they might postpone the jersey retirement if that happens, though.

Brett Favre needs to go away. Retire or don't. Just pick something and do it. And say it yourself. Don't have your mom and your brother in law out talking to the media for you.
Having twins has dramatically reduced the time I have to nerd out.

In the stuff I've been reading, analysts think he might be traded to one of the less desireable teams first (like MIA), for like draft picks - and then would be traded again to someplace like the Vikings for even better draft picks.

I haven't seen the retrade deal anywhere here.
The talk is not within the division.
But I say.
Trade him to Minnesota.
Favre stinks in domes on artificial turf.
Terrible record.

I definately hope he somehow ends up on the Vikings. With a good QB, that team really could be great - and it would prevent other teams from stacking the box to slow down Peterson as much.

The Jets and Tampa Bay Buccaneers have expressed interest in Favre, according to a Packers source.

http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=3504613

It was the clearest signal yet that the Packers will deal Favre to resolve the current stalemate. Green Bay, which has committed to Aaron Rodgers as its quarterback of the future, wants to keep Favre away from its NFC North rivals -- especially the Minnesota Vikings.

There were multiple reports Wednesday night that the team had offered to pay Favre up to $20 million to stay retired.

I wanna see the look on all the cheesehead fans faces when he comes out of that opposite tunnel on opening day in Lambeau field wearing purple and gold. It would be one of the more surreal moments of sports history.

Latest I read was he was speaking to the NY Jets.

Edit: Someone posted a comment I liked on the yahoo rumors story about him likely going to the NFC North after all:

2 Tickets to the 1st MNF game of the season - $500
Gas from Minneapolis to Green Bay - $100
#4 Purple and Gold Jersey - $125
5 Cold ones at Lambeau - $30

Getting drunk and watching Brett and AP rock Green Bay on the night the #4 jersey was suppposed to be retired - Priceless

That would really be something to see. My guess is they trade him to anyone but the Bears or Vikings.

I'd take the money and run. I'm not Favre, though, because he certainly doesn't need the money.
I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do, I do not do. But what I hate, I do.

Something to think about WRT the mighty Favre......

He's did so well in Green Bay because he fit in with their offensive style & ideas. After a few years he was calling his own plays and having the guys to throw to helped him out immensely. He basically ran the offense himself and the coordinators just basically followed his lead. He was the team's offensive coordinator.

The big question is will he fit in with a Minnesota or Chicago style offense? Minny......possibly, Chicago....no way. Minny has had a QB that can run and the offensive line knows what to deal with for that. OTOH the Chicago O-line has just been trying to keep their last 2 QB's alive, let alone give them a chance to get into a grove.

IMO Favre should just quit now before he either gets hurt or before he just makes himself look silly for even considering coming out of retirement. Sorry Brett, but it's time to hang up the cleats. Let your legacy be one you want it to be, not one you dread it becoming.
For those that fought for it, freedom has a taste that the protected will never know.

In the latest chapter of the drama that is Brett Favre and his pending return from retirement, the veteran passer has told reporters that he has every desire to play for the Minnesota Vikings and is now motivated by his wish to compete against his former employer, the Green Bay Packers, according to the Wisconsin State Journal. In a text message sent to the Journal, Favre states, "My intentions have been to play, and with Green Bay. They say no, so I still want to play in this division for obvious reasons, which I made clear to management. If they won't let me play in Green Bay, let me play against you. That's where I am."

I would welcome him if he'll play his heart out, he's a fun guy to watch when he's on fire. However, I'll also be the first to say off with his head if he doesn't fit in with the Viqueen offense.

Brett Favre has run the west coast offense for his entire career in Green Bay. The Vikings run the west coast offense. It shouldn't take him more than a week to pick up the slightly different nuances. It'll take longer to get a good sense of timing with the receivers.

Mr. Favre's wishy-washy retire/un-retire act has certainly hurt the Packers. Now it's about wanting to make the other guy look bad rather than wanting to play football or wanting to get paid.

uh.....that would be how Football works.

Farve has been doing this for awhile now so I'm not sure why anyone is surprised by this, least of all the fudge packers.

Either suck it up and keep him or go ahead and trade him. Right now it's the Packers that are being the asshats.

Although I imagine Rodgers is considering going all Tonya Harding on his arse.
