    GB making a HUGE error here.........cheeseheads seen grilling and melting down all around, sad day for GB fans.

    I wonder where he will end up. Let the guessing start for real now - I would love to see him in Minnesota


    Favre seeks unconditional release from Packers, sources say

    I think Favre will wind up in Miami, just a hunch.

    I fully understand why GB wants nothing to do with this egomaniac at this point. After 4 years of having him use all 16 games as his personal retirement tour complete with fake tears, they decided to move on after he announced he was done. Favre actually thinks the Packers should have gotten down on their knees and begged Lord Favre to return for another year and that by not doing it they forced him into retirement. As ridiculous as that sounds, Favre's inner circle has been yelling it at the top of their lungs since before his retirement announcement.

    I'm sure something will be worked out and GB will trade him to a team of his choice outside of their division who will then suffer the misfortune of the 1 man Favre media show Favre's ego demands followed by Jake Plummer/Aaron Brooks like play in big games.

    How can they do that to Favre, love him or hate him - he is a legend and restored that franchise to prominence.

    Also happens to be the best QB Green Bay could start, but looks to me like they blew it.

    3 years/$39M left on his contract. I don't think they'll be doing that.

    How did the Packers blow it? The guy retired. It was probably always a fake retirement to get the full offseason off - Favre is well known as a guy who hates to work at football, hates offseason workouts, and publicly has complained about how he hates the film work it takes to QB in today's NFL but the fact is he retired. Were they supposed to sit by in case he decided to honor them again with his presence? He left them no choice but to go in another direction.

    Seems to me they pushed him in March to announce when he really wasn't ready and pushed him hard.

    No matter though, he still wants to play, so, they should have welcomed him back or If they didn't want him, at least , out of respect, release him.

    Now they have split the fans, team and probably the players too and have a media feeding frenzy going on (nice to see attention leave here for a change).

    It's no way to treat a guy who devoted a career to his team.

    Fact is he is still one hell of a QB and in the end, that is where they will have blown it. He will lead some team deep into the playoffs.

    yea it would pretty much save his ass but if they got Favre it would raise expectation that this team should at least compete for a playoff spot. If the team bottomed out with a 5 or 6 win year that could definitely get him canned.

    Can you imagine anything more beautiful than seeing those two dinks (Favre and Mangini) going down in flames together?

    Lets hope he stays in the NFC. No need to have another 4000 yd passer in the AFC, challenging Brady, Manning, etc.
