On the offensive side, they've got Adrian Peterson to carry the rock and an offensive line anchored by Steve Hutchinson and Matt Birk. With an All Star quarterback, they really could be a contender. With Tarvaris Jackson at quarterback, they probably are not. Their offensive coordinator is apparently a former Packers assistant and close friend of Brett's, as well. Rumor has it the Vikings have been talking to Favre privately (and in violation of the rules) already.

    This could be the exact situation Favre wants and the Packers definitely do not want.
    The Vikings are getting stronger and are making a push for the playoffs. The problem I see is who would Favre throw to??? The Vikings weakest link is probably the WR position. I would love to see the Packers trade Favre to the Vikings just to see the end results.

    Bottom line....There's no crying in football!!!!

    Stayed retired,period.

Favre is really pushing the limit of the consideration he's earned IMO.

    The problem with trying to trade Favre to some place he doesn't want to go is that all he has to do is not report and his rights revert back to Green Bay, then they're back to square one. Tough situation all around.
    My feelings exactly on this one Mike. I think the question here is not if the Packers are being fair to Favre, but is Brett Favre being fair to the Packers? He retired, the Packers moved on, as they should have. Now he has a change of heart and everyone has to change their plans, move aside and let Brett do whatever he wants? As always with Brett, it's all about Brett.

    What about Dick Vermiel then?

    Heck, I always liked the guy, great coach, even better person, but he sure was a tad more emotional than most.

    Vermeil should be an exception. He could cry over spilled milk. He could also cry just because the milk wasn't spilled. It's just part of who he is...bless him.



    RAM ON!

    I may be wrong, but I think laram0 is refering to the whinny, complaining, demanding, temper tantrum foot stomping, "the world is against me" crying as opposed to the intensity driven, emotional crying. At least I think.

    Re: Are the Packers being fair to Favre?

    I know that this is will be frowned on. But hear me out.



    Is it possible that Favre planned it this way?
    Is it possible that Favre had no intentions to play for the Packers?
    Is it possible that Favre and the F.O. had issues well before this?
    Is it possible that Favre and his agent miscalculated his influence?
    Is it possible that Favre really wanted to play for another team of his choosing?
    Is it possible that Favre is, in a way, at the mercy of the Packers?
    Is it possible that Favre's plan backfires?

    Not to say that Favre won't win out here. But the "factory" is bigger than "the man"!


    RAM ON!

    Let me see, get 20 million dollars to stay home and play golf, go fishing, ride my motorcycle, travel the world, or go into camp and play next season to get knocked on my butt for half that amount. Exactly how many concussions did Favre get?

    So does this change your mind about how fair the Packers are being to Favre?

    Re: Are the Packers being fair to Favre?

    BF should stay retired. BUT now that he signed with the Jets, I look forward to seeing what will happen with that team this year.

    At least I'll be able to hear less of the Green Bay cheese nachos. If ever there was a tiring circus of NFL news -- and I mean seriously ad nauseum -- it's been this freakish Favre tabloid terror for the past several weeks on just about every sundry type of media: ESPN, local sports, Contacto Deportivo / Todo Deportes (Spanish sports news), USA Today, Internet, you name it.

    Good grief!
