    I sorta agree with except I could see him being traded then being traded back to the Vikings.
    I don't think we trade anything for him.
    We only take him if he is cut.
    That is what this stink is all about.
    He doesn't want to play for the teams that are allowed to trade for him.

    Do we really want him that bad.
    If someone has to give up a draft pick for him, what are they going to ask us to give up for him.
    It ain't going to be a scrub.
    If someone trades for Favre, it is bacause they want him on their team.
    JMHO!

    I was listening to Jerry Jones on Sirius and what he said wasn't new, but he said when you have a QB, it is time to put all the pieces around him.
    You have to do everything possible.
    JJ actually had a few really good things to say.
    I think I actually like the guy now. LOL!


    Anyway, I don't think we trade for Favre.
    Favre has to approve the trade out of GB.
    If he goes somewhere else, he may not have the approval clause??
    All he has to do is tell the teams that are interested in him that he will retire if he ends up there, go back to the farm and throw footballs around.
    Does he? I saw a report on that where it said as long as he fits into the salary cap of the team they would trade him to, that he can't block it. Of course I read it on the net so it had to be true

    One way or the other he can always refuse to show up, but where would that get him?

    1. They keep Favre around until it's too late for him to go somewhere else, (Like after the season gets started) then they release him.. The Vikes could pick him up then, no problem.
    2. He gets traded to the Bucs and the Bucs trade him to Minnesota. In the process Gruden PO's the Packers big time. Don't know if Gruden has the guts to do that.

    Re: Favre faxes letter to NFL, seeks reinstatement

    If I had to say where I think Favre ends up playing, I'de have to honestly say for Minnesota....Yup, you heard it right.
    I believe Favre will end up playing for us because of one reason and one reason only.
    What ever the NFL Poster Child Wants, the Poster Child Gets.
    I believe he's wanted to come here all along, and the Pack knew that, and I just have a feeling the Pack is going to give in at some point soon, and Favre will then jump ship and land on our deck.....




    How do I feel about that, thats a whole different subject....

    Re: Favre faxes letter to NFL, seeks reinstatement

    Of course I still go back to my post a week or so ago where I stated that if a team is found guilty of tampereing, that team cannot get that player for one year after they are found guilty. I still believe that is the rule. I could be wrong but I think it all hinges on the tampering charges against the Vikes whether or not they get Favre. It's the one fly in the ointment still to be resolved. And I think the Packers went for it just so he could not go to the Vikings.

    Look at the date. If they were working on a trade....Lol, he would have gotten traded. There are even reports that he refuses to give them a name of teams he wants to play for.

    Re: Favre faxes letter to NFL, seeks reinstatement

    I wouldnt mind if he joins, I wouldnt mind if he dont. I mean I think he will give us a better chance to make it to the superbowl but then again the bears made it with grossman, and we are x2 better than what they were then. But they didnt win the superbowl, and if we get farve we HAVE to win the superbowl. Our starters are getting old and if we him it will just get older. Who knows how long we can keep all of these great players on the roster. We are already low on cash as it is, but we may can get him for the veterns min. Keep in mind he is on the madden cover
    even though I dont believe in curses that thing has been accurate. Anyways if we can get him, get em. If we have to trade something/someone big for him leave it. I believe in Tjack and think he will have a solid year. 16tds 11ints is my prediction

    [size=13pt]Murphy heads south, asking Favre to stay home[/size]

    By Rob Demovsky and Pete Dougherty • [email protected], [email protected] • July 29, 2008


    The Green Bay Packers on Tuesday night sent team president and CEO Mark Murphy on a private plane to visit Brett Favre in Mississippi in an attempt to persuade the quarterback to stay home rather than report to training camp this week....

    QB files for reinstatement; Murphy flies south to talk

    Green Bay - If the Green Bay Packers can't find a trading partner willing to meet their demands and Brett Favre follows through on his decision to return to the National Football League, the future Hall of Fame quarterback could be in a green and gold uniform Friday playing backup to Aaron Rodgers....

    Re: Favre faxes letter to NFL, seeks reinstatement

    What's their problem with him coming to camp? The packers are making the drama even bigger... Just let him report to camp, then it's easier to deal with eachother, otherwise you get even more negative publicity.

    The Packers FO is a big joke if you ask me !
