Oh Brett, how we hardly know ye...

You know Brett, we Packer fans love ya, and will never forget all the great moments in Green Bay.  Even after last year's fiasco, where I think management's pride was as much to blame as anything else, we wished you well in the AFC.  You then retired again, only to entertain the idea of playing yet again, this time for the Vikings...
 
...you say no to that idea, only a few weeks ago...
 
and now, reports are, that you will sign with the hated vikings.  the vikings.  the F#$%ing Vikings. 
 
What's happened to the emotions of Packer fans everywhere is not fair at all.  Maybe that doesn't matter.  Maybe you don't care.  Maybe you do care, I think you do, but it doesn't overrule this burning desire you have to play football.  You.  A man with nothing left to prove in this game...
 
Like I said, Brett, we love ya, but it remains to be seen if this is unforgiveable.  If you of all people lead the purple and gold to victory against the Packers, you Brett...well, I just don't know I'll handle that.  And now, we have to root against you.  Packer fans, rooting against Brett Favre.  The thought of it is sickening. 
 
I've always supported your right to play.  You are a football player, it's all you know, it's what you're great at, it's what God meant  you to do on this earth, it's your life.  You don't judge my "legacy" or tell me when to hang it up, so I certainly won't do that to you.  If you can still play, and still want to play, then play.  Life is too short to pass up doing what you love to do.  That said, Packer fans can't stand losing to the Vikings, and no way can we root for you against our team.  No way can we cheer for you against the Packers and, depending on the division standings, I'm not sure we can root for you playing against anyone else in the league either.  I guess I hope you throw for 4,000 yards, 30 TD's, lose to the Packers twice, and finish behind us in the division.  That's the ideal.
 
Good luck playing for second place in the division this year - I can only say, I hope, that to you, when we've beaten you twice and won the division, that it was worth a second place finish (or worse) and the price (however fairly or unfairly) you're going to pay...

The best? Uhh that would be Tom Brady. Brett has been mediocre for the last ten years. Going to camp shows your part of the team. Not about yourself. Thomas Jones had some pretty bad comments about Favre, cause Brett is egomaniac and wants the attention.  Him not missing a game has hurt his teams by his just lob it  up and see where it goes gameplay and not learning the plays. Id take Jeff Garcia over him. Brady has rings and has more come from behind in the 4th quarter games and playoff appearances to back up his greantess, Brett has a ring from like 1992 and since then a Testaverde like career. I love people getting excited about nothing. He wont last a full season.

Berrian is unproven?  He had a very good season last year with a below to average passing game.  Percy will be a great addition to the WR core this year and will be the Offensive Rookie of the Year.   I dont know if Favre is the key to get into the superbowl but he is better than what we had.

Who is Cutler going to throw too?  Hester a #1 wide receiver lol.   Bears defense not as good as it use to be.  8-8 would be a good season for you guys.

Wow, cant believe the haters of Brett Favre. The Vikes provided him the most dominate player in the NFL in Adrian Peterson and who cares if he is 40 and threw so many interceptions, the guy is going to put up good numbers with a freak for a RB. This guy makes everyone around him believe they can win every game. Look at Thomas Jones last years numbers, they were the best of his career. Who needs training camp when you havent missed a game since stepping into the NFL. You cant ignore the fact that he is the best, and you can tell by the hating comments of so many haters! GO BRETT...

As a DIE HARD Packer fan it upset's me to think of Brett in purple as much as anyone. But wishing Kampman blows his knee out come on.Lets just knock him on his butt and worry about beating the Vikings.

The OVER/UNDER is 8 Games with Under the -120 Fav.
Personally I Doubt he will Complete Game 4 vs GB

Besides the fact of not be able to train in camp.  I'm sure it takes a while for all the HGH and performance enhancing drugs to "clean" out of the system.  Everyone does it, yeah I know.  But there's no way a 40 year old with a torn rotator is playing by the book in the NFL.  Sorry.  That being said, I don't believe he'll last.  If he does, there is a lot to be said for that alone.  HGH or not.  Just my observation and thoughts.

Farve won't get past game 4. His former defensive teammates after practicing sgainst him for years and not being able to touch him can't wait to put him on his back.

 

Plus he is not healthy. He has rotator cuff problems, plus knee and ankle pains.

 

He choked and folded near the end of the season with the Jets last year and will do the same with the Vikes, if he even lasts that long.

 

OVER/UNDER is 8 games he plays in with under the fav.

 

Just another reason to hate Minnesota and root for the Vikes to fail

Good point about Barry Sanders. The end of his career felt so uprupt and too soon. I would have liked to see a couple more years, but it is good for him that we have no memories of him hanging on too long as other greats did - Franco Harris to Seattle, Emmit Smith to Arizona, Farve...etc.

What am I reading in all these posts? Did John Madden not teach us well? When speaking of #4, one must never say the first or last name without the other.
