    Even better then his rocket arm, Farve brings much needed leadership to our Offense. Something our other 2 QBs couldnt.

    I like this one:

    "He's helped my confidence a whole lot," said Rice, adding he's been watching film at home and trading text messages with Favre about ways to exploit defenses. "He's just helping me mature."

    First-year starting center John Sullivan had a difficult task replacing veteran Matt Birk, but Sullivan has made fewer mistakes because of Favre.

    "At times I've missed things that the defense is showing us and he comes up and makes the call, so you know that's the type of player he is and the knowledge of the game he has," Sullivan said. "He sees things based on his experience. It's definitely helping."
    Sage and Sully or TJ and Sully, I think we might have had a rocky transition! Looks like BF give Sully a year to mature while playing.
    Good find.
    Maybe I should have actually read the article.
    Makes perfect sense.
    A lot has been mentioned previously how Favre didn't necessarily mentor younger QB's (i.e. Rodgers).
    Obviously he helps with the players on the field though.
    The Sully quote is a perfect example of verteran leadership and knowledge of the game on the field of play.
    I mentioned this after the first two games.
    Even though Favre wasn't lighting up the stat sheet early on, he is a difference maker; no doubt.
    IMO, I don't think Favre saw a reason to mentor.
    He was going to play every game, so why waste the time

    As for Rodgers, he was pissed the TT drafted him instead of getting someone that could help the team at that time.

    In 2004, the Packers had won the division with a 10-6 record, had the #3 offense and the #25 defense.
    So what does TT do with his 1st round pick?
    Draft a 2nd string QB.


    Favre was pissed, as he wanted to go out on top and the clock was ticking.
    Thus, he said he wasn't going to help Rodgers, thus started the Favre vs. TT feud.

    IMO, I don't think Favre has any problem helping TJ or Sage, since it is a totally different situation.
    It would have been different if TJ/Sage had more resentment of Favre being there, but I think both of them are totally on board given recent events and how Favre is helping the whole team.

    Favre will; just by being around show Tjack and anyone interested how it's done. I hope they can pick up enough to fill the shoes when needed

    Wait!
    Could this be one of those variable and / or tangibles that I was speaking so much about?
    Why hasn't CMac posted here yet?
    I thought a 95.5 QB rating meant so much over a 5.5 game span.
    Leadership meant nothing.
    They almost had me convinced so thanks for this article.

    I don't think Favre had any problems as such with "mentoring" like alot seem to think. No starting quarterback
    is supposed to be "actively" mentoring their "competition and I think that Favre's response mirrored this sentiment ... However the media and some other people have blown this way out of proportions ... I seriously doubt Favre would have turned Rodgers down, had Rodgers been more "pro-active" ... The thing I would like to know is,
    how many times did Rodgers actually ask Favre about things ? ... Or if he (Rodgers) wasn't part of the "crew" studying game film (Favre and the Receivers for example) why didn't he ask to become part of these ?

    I think it's pretty evident that Favre has no problems with answering (or asking questions for that matter) regardless of who and what player ask him ... The conversations with Tarvaris Jackson and Sage Rosenfeldts should put any such doubts to rest right now ...
