    Packers say one thing, do another as Favre mess lingers


    This is the best summary of how it went down that I have read.
    Read the whole article and enjoy it.
    TT is digging his own grave here.


    [size=12pt]Packers say one thing, do another as Favre mess lingers[/size]

    At the very least, Thompson should have told Favre: "You want to come back? Fine. I think you're making a mistake, but it's your life and your legacy. If you do come back, it's going to be an open competition for the starting job. I give you my word we'll judge it as objectively as possible. But if Rodgers wins, you're the backup and you can't bitch about it. Deal?"

    And at the very most, Thompson could have said: "You gave us 16 great years. Here's your release."

    Instead, the Packers are trying to trade their best quarterback. I repeat, their best quarterback. Of course, Favre isn't good enough for them, but he is good enough that the Packers reportedly want a first-round draft pick in exchange for his rights.

    This is what I mean by Packers flip-flopping.

    This is a Ted Thompson thread more than a Favre news thread.

    LOL, I should have put this one in the trash the Pack forum....

    This is my new favorite columnist........ Gene Wojciechowski

    This guy absolutely makes the Packers and Ted T look worse than the evil empire in Star Wars or even the Evil Empire in MLB.

    This says it all.......

    Time to make a decision, Ted. Now it's your legacy at stake.
