Hat Trick

Rumor......Favre considering comeback

Recommended Posts

FYI DD, they didn't offer him in a trade. The contact was brief and preliminary.

 

Holy crap, McCrackhead, wtf do you think they were talking about? The color of Favre's tractor?

So when is Ari Fleisher going to say "Stay the course"?

 

When Scott McClellan replaces him, we'll get the real story on the Favre debacle in a future book.

True but after one year with Brett they are right back where they started and do they really need the drama that will be involved? I think Salvage stated it earlier... it's a no win situation as if we win the SB the Packer nation will remind us that it took a Packer to finally get us a win and if we don't it's a We told you he was past his prime!!

 

Wow.

 

You really think winning a SB with Brett Favre is a no-win for you? Just 'cause "Packer Nation" could say it took a Packer to finally win one?

 

Really? Are you NFC North people that petty? Who gives a furry flying f-ck? If he's playing for the Vikings, that makes him a Viking in my book. People change teams all the time.

Childress: There hasn’t been contact with Packers

August 4th, 2008 – 12:17 PM by Judd Zulgad

MANKATO — Coach Brad Childress said the Vikings have not had any contact with the Green Bay Packers about a potential trade involving Brett Favre. The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported today that Green Bay officials called the Vikings late last week.

 

“Bob [Hagan, the Vikings director of public relations] showed me that article last night,” Childress said. “I was in a personnel meeting with Rick [spielman] and George Paton until 11 o’clock with the coaches. I have a pretty good idea how that [article] went down but you can shape the environment however you want one way or the other. We haven’t had any contact with them.”

 

Favre has reported to the Packers and, according to reports, will be allowed to challenge Aaron Rodgers for the No. 1 job. The Packers at one point had said Favre would not be welcomed back as their starting quarterback and the veteran then asked for his release with the intention of joining the Vikings.

 

Childress pointed out the latest article on the situation was written by Bob McGinn, who had reported the Packers had team-issued cell phone records that showed Favre had contact with the Vikings. Green Bay, of course, has filed tampering charges against Minnesota. Since that report, others have said there was no team-issued cell phone.

 

“My comment would be, I think that’s the same journalist that wrote that there was a cell phone involved that the Packers gave [Favre],” Childress said.

 

As for Favre reporting to camp and being reinstated, Childress had little reaction. ”I’ve seen it but haven’t had a lot of discretionary time to sit and watch television or sit [in front of the] Internet,” he said.

 

Childress said he has not heard anything from the league regarding the tampering charges filed by the Packers. “I think they have everything from us that they need,” he said. Childress has been given no timeline on possible league reaction and doesn’t expect one. “[Commissioner Roger Goodell] has a lot of things on his plate, whether it’s the Hall of Fame or dealing with other issues,” Childress said. “He’ll get back to me when he needs to.”

 

Injury update: Veteran quarterback Gus Frerotte said he sat out today’s practice because of a sore back. Frerotte said he would be back tomorrow. Defensive end Brian Robison is in the Twin Cities today having his leg looked at by doctors. Childress would not get into specifics.

It's called google. Even an idiot can do it. That may be why you don't understand.

 

A trade remains a possibility. The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported on its Web site late Sunday night that the Packers have had preliminary contact with the Vikings on a potential trade for Favre.

 

linnk

 

After a statement released by the Packers said Favre would be involved in an open quarterback competition with Aaron Rodgers, a report in the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel said the Packers contacted the Vikings on Friday about trading Favre, according to an anonymous source credited as “an executive in personnel for a National Football League team with close ties to clubs in the NFC North Division.

Packers, Vikings talking Favre trade

The Packers welcomed back quarterback Brett Favre from the reserve-retired list Sunday knowing full well that they've already taken the first step toward trading him to the Vikings. An executive in personnel for a National Football League team with close ties to clubs in the NFC North Division told the Journal Sentinel that the Packers called the Vikings on Friday informing them that Favre was available. "They've kind of said through one of their (front-office) guys that if Favre did report they would potentially trade him within the division," the executive said late Sunday afternoon. The source said the conversation between officials from the two bitter rivals was brief. There was no discussion about possible compensation.

Pack may have called Vikes about Favre

Green Bay Sideshow Brett Favre is apparently available to the Vikings in a trade. Word is that Packers execs called arch nemesis Minnesota on Friday to tell the team that Favre could be theirs in a trade. Word is that the conversation hasn't moved forward too much and that the Vikes will only trade for Favre with a fourth- or fifth-round pick. Seems like incentive to keep the Hall of Famer on the bench as a backup.

Which, as baldy noted, all link back to the guy who made the cell phone claim, correct?

It would appear so. I never heard whether the cell phone situation was resolved. Did you?

Wow.

 

You really think winning a SB with Brett Favre is a no-win for you? Just 'cause "Packer Nation" could say it took a Packer to finally win one?

 

Really? Are you NFC North people that petty? Who gives a furry flying f-ck? If he's playing for the Vikings, that makes him a Viking in my book. People change teams all the time.

 

 

 

They'd screw it up somehow. I have faith.

Not sayingI would not take a superbowl win with Favre on the team. This would be a high risk, high reward move by the Vikings. The only reward that makes the move worth all the risk is a superbowl victory.

IIRC, the Packers don't have team issued cell phones and that was the resolution.

I have'nt read any of probly the last 10 pages in this thread. I just think it's hilarious that the Packer fans around here that have been bashing Favre have to root for him when he beats out Rodgers for the job. :wacko:

Until some form of compensation is discussed it's not really an offer, is it?

 

Are you any relation to zmanzzzz? Also what's your motive or what team do you follow?

If Favre is a packer I have no problem rooting for him, what he's done is still bush league, and that won't change.

One false report by one reporter. Have to double check reports these days because reporters are too lazy to.

Yes. We are that petty. My hatred for all things Favre is completely irrational. I wouldn't root for him as a Lion.

That team started out awful in '06 and got MUCH better towards the end of the year. They ripped off four straight in December, including embarrassing the Super Bowl-bound Bears at Soldier Field on New Year's Eve. At this time last year, I predicted that they'd make the playoffs (although I admittedly didn't foresee them missing the Super Bowl by a game).

 

Agreed that Favre stepped up his game last season, but it's A LOT easier to be an effective and efficient QB when your GM pieces together a functioning team around you. That team wasn't there in '05 or the first half of '06.

Take note of Favre's play near the end of '06 - 3 of the 4 wins in that season-ending streak were pretty much in SPITE of him.
