Well the new season is almost upon us so I thought to start a new thread. So much stuff to talk about. Let’s start with the Brett Favre situation. I would hate to be in management’s shoes there. It makes sense that the Packers want to look to the future and start Rodgers. But Favre throws a big wrench in their plans by “un-retiring”. He says he was pressured into retiring. I don’t know about that. From the interview he gave to Fox News (and why that medium btw?), he says he wanted to make up his mind by the start of training camp. That’s simply too late IMO. A team should be settled in the QB situation before the season starts. Favre holding back his decision until that late is unfair to the whole team. I know he’s earned a little slack because of what he’s accomplished, but I still think he’s being unfair here. Having said all that, the Packers should now release him to do what he wants. There’s no point in further melodrama. Just release him, accept the inevitable adverse fan reaction, and then move on towards the future.
