man, that article is terrible

kinda hoping that Favre does come back. i don't hate him anymore. i remember the books that came out after his 'retirement' after the '07 season and just thinking how incredibly storied this guy's career was, and that now, here we are in a world where Favre has now "un-retired" three additional times, played for two more teams, nearly went on a Super Bowl run, and then got destroyed. Favre to the Eagles makes too much sense. Please let it be true.

I figure Fox, CBS, ESPN and NBC are probably loading up the armored cars to try and be the one to sign Favre to be a football talking head.

If you put Favre next to Terry Bradshaw on a counter talking football the "aw shucks" meter would be running in the red.

"kinda hoping that Favre does come back. i don't hate him anymore."

You will... you will...

if Favre stays retired now, Ted might only wipe his ass with Favre's jersey once before he hangs it above the rafters

yep, where "fun" means "backhanded compliments given to, and passive-aggressive attacks on, aaron rogers."

“I won't lie to you,” Favre said, “but there has been times once that season started — numerous times — that I thought I shouldn't have played, this was a mistake. But then after the season was over, and maybe even before — I think the last couple of games which I didn't play in and it'd been years since I hadn't played and watched from the sidelines, better yet in street clothes, that was the first time I'd ever done that — but it gave me a chance to really reflect and look around. There was no pressure to perform. I was just kind of watching.

“So I had a chance to really think and think in depth.

i like that cutler has become the anti-favre in many ways
except for the INTs

EVERYONE COOKING SCMABLED EGGS,CHEESE WITH TOASTER!! (forksclovetofu), Friday, 28 September 2012 14:50 (seven years ago) link

what do you mean forks? Cutler is probably the best comp to Favre in the NFL today

frogbs, Friday, 28 September 2012 14:54 (seven years ago) link

in every way except he's not that good i guess
but yeah

EVERYONE COOKING SCMABLED EGGS,CHEESE WITH TOASTER!! (forksclovetofu), Friday, 28 September 2012 14:57 (seven years ago) link

honestly my first version of that post was that cutler IS the new favre but i second thought

EVERYONE COOKING SCMABLED EGGS,CHEESE WITH TOASTER!! (forksclovetofu), Friday, 28 September 2012 14:58 (seven years ago) link

To put things into context look at last year. Rodgers sits a game and Flynn throws 6 TDs (a guy who apparently couldn't even beat out Russell Wilson for a starting job). Cutler gets knocked out and the Bears struggle to put up double digits. No QB's going to succeed when you only get 2 second to throw the ball and your only decent reciever is an aging Brandon Marshall.

yeah, i'm not calling a referendum on Cutler as a qb there, I'm just saying that in the system he's in right now, he sucks.

don't know many quarterbacks who succeed in the Get Sacked Every Fifth Play system

cutler is a terrible comp for favre! he has never had fun!

call all destroyer, Friday, 28 September 2012 15:34 (seven years ago) link

we have all had fun watching Cutler get sacked tho so I think it counts

set me on fire RAAAAH (DJP), Friday, 28 September 2012 15:35 (seven years ago) link

Johnny Unitas and Joe Montana would be terrible with the Bears O-line.I'm optimistic it will get better with Forte coming back, and the precedent of the last two years where they protected better as the year went on.

one year passes...

PROVO — For 20 years, Brett Favre captured the attention of pro football with his gunslinging, fun-loving attitude.

It’s a special weekend for Favre — along with seven other men — as they are being enshrined into the Pro Football Hall of Fame as a part of the 2016 class.

BYU first-year offensive coordinator Ty Detmer had a front-row seat for the start of Favre’s legendary career. From 1992-95, Detmer and Favre — both young pro quarterbacks at the time — played together in Green Bay under head coach Mike Holmgren, a former BYU quarterbacks coach.

“He played with passion. Early on, he didn’t know football that well, but he made plays,” Detmer recalled of his former teammate.

Favre's instincts to play the game, and his drive to compete, led him to a Hall of Fame-caliber career capped by a Super Bowl XXXI victory and three straight NFL MVP honors from 1995-97, an unprecedented feat.

Favre went on to a prolific career that included setting the NFL career marks for completions (6,300), pass attempts (10,169) and wins (186, tied with Peyton Manning). He's one of only two players — Manning being the other — to throw for over 70,000 yards (71,838). Favre also threw 508 touchdown passes, second only to Manning.

Detmer, meanwhile, played 14 seasons in the NFL, starting 25 games and playing for six different teams. Another Green Bay quarterback from that era, Mark Brunell, went on to a 17-year career and was named to three Pro Bowls.

Favre was known for having fun no matter the situation, whether it was on the field, in the locker room or away from the spotlight of the game.

“He was kind of a fun-loving guy who just loved to play the game, especially early when I was there his first four years in Green Bay. It was kind of anything goes,” Detmer said.

That included hijinks with his teammates.

“We did some things the night before the game playing goal-line offense with our center Frank Winters as the fullback and three of us as defensive line sitting there at the bed waiting for him to dive over the top,” Detmer said. “Holmgren probably would have killed us had he known we were doing that. He wouldn’t have killed Favre because he wanted him healthy, but the rest of us would have got killed.”
