Favre

Recommended Posts

Jets waived QB Brett Favre off their reserve/retired list.

This could mean nothing, or it could mean something. Players waived off the retired list become free agents, and there have been some rumors lately that Favre is contemplating a return. Something had to spur this transaction, because the Jets would've just left Favre on reserve/retired otherwise. It's possible Favre wants to sign a one-day contract to retire as a Packer. It's also possible that the Vikings want him again.

Yeah sign the one day thing with Green Bay and retire. We don't need to further the QB questions we already have.

In my opinion, at the end of last year, Farve was no better than anything we already have. A year ago I would have said sign him up, but it seem like he lost a few steps last year. Hopefully he stays retired this time.

I'd take an old Favre any day over TJack or Sage! End of last year he was injured. I would love to see him in purple just to stick it to the cheeseheads! shocked

I agree 100%! I was always forced to cheer against him due to the purple in my blood, but have always admired the way he played.

Any way to jab the "CHEESIES" to the east I am all for it

Let me start out by saying that I'm on both sides of the fence...

Didn't we pull Cunningham out of retirement a few years back? That didn't go to badly, did it?

Cunningham/Moss

Favre/Harvin

?

Thinking about Favre in purple still turns my stomach sour, but if that tendon in his arm is healed up, it could really be something...

regardless if he comes back for any team, this means there is a possibility that madden will come back too

best case scenario they both stay retired smile

I don't doubt the Vikes take a really hard look at him again this year. It would be alot of fun to have him as our q-back just for the hype and build-up leading into the season and especially during Packer week. He is still better than anything we have on our roster but time may have healed his need for revenge against the Pack. As for him returning to the Packers...all bridges between Mississippi and Green Bay have been burned down.

Did Favre ever go in and get his shoulder taken care of? I thought he was looking at some surgery if he wanted to come back and play again.

At the end of last year he was throwing up garbage. His arm is pretty much shot at this point.

I think with our defense we need a guy who can manage the game and not turn the ball over. Thats not Favre. He's a gun slinger not a game manager.

Bring him in!!! Lets go....Vikings would be contenders right off the bat. Don't think that Farve won't get knee deep in the receivers butts if they don't run stuff right, drop balls, or are just bad. Petersen would be turning cartwheels knowing there wasn't an entire defense waiting for him. What would play action do after Petersen busts about 120 yds? Fake to AP, throw deep to Harvin. Defenses wouldn't know what was coming at them. Now it will be, stop the run, hit TJack in the mouth a few times and watch him fall apart.

The problem is that in reality it would be... fake handoff to AP, throw deep to Harvin, oh Favre under throws Harvin, the Bears pick it off take it back for an easy 6.

I would have taken Favre last year but his season with the Jets really showed his age. His cannon arm is starting to fire more duds then bombs these days and its only going to get worse.

This is one of the best quarterback's to ever play the game. If he can't manage a game, I don't think he would have had the success that he's had over the years.

I say bring him and make Booty give up his jersey. I would love to see him in purple. I have a feeling that Bus Cook has already hit the Chilly speed dial on his cell phone. I think he is as good or better than any qb we have now...what have we got to loose?? There is no chance of giving up draft picks now to aquire him, just the salary that he would want.

Can you imagine if he came to Minnesota and then we sweep the pack this year. I could see old #4 doing that just to stick it to McCarthy and Thompson. Especially if he could take us to the big game and win it. I'm excited, this year I hope he DOES un-retire!!!

Favre has now said multiple times that he is not going to return to the NFL. Even though we have all heard this before from him, I think it might just be the real deal now.

Of course Favre has had a great career but his style of play was based on his ability to sling the ball around from any place on the field. His big arm is what made him what great, but without the big arm then what do you have?

Favre is just to much of a gambler, always has been and always will be. You don't lead the NFL in career interceptions if you are a prototypical game manager. That comes from gun slinging/gambling. In his prime he had enough other skills to make up for the INT's but as his skills fall off you are left with just the INT's.

We need someone to limit turnovers, pick up key first downs with his arm when needed and be just profficent enough with the deep ball to keep the defense honest.

I think the Packers are pretty content with Rogers at QB. I don't think they would be too upset if Favre came back to play for the Vikes. I'm sure they have a few guys on defense that would love to tee off on Favre.

It wouldnt be worth anything if I died it purple!!! If Favre came back a queen I would still spend the 75 bucks on a jersey. I have an extra kick in my step today after I found out he was released!! Im gonna say he is gonna make a come back!!!

few things to think about

favre wouldn't be asked to throw the ball 35-40 times a game like he's had to do his whole career...around here you toss it up 20-25 times a game.

this defense is a way better defense then he's had backing him in years if not ever.

our running game would be the best he's ever played with.

he wouldn't wear down towards the end of the season as a vike...he's a way better qb then any of the other 39-40 yr old qbs playing the game right now.

last but not least the best part would be it would make t-awesome the 3rd qb on the depth chart!!

He really hasn't done anything this time...yet The Jets simply released him...stay tuned tough. All the talk is media/hype related.

C'mon just one more year in a Purple #4 Jersey no less!!! You have to admit the Vikes / Pack games would be some of the most watched games of the season.

      Hi everyone. It has been a slow start to the 2021 waterfowl season in MN. A combination of a bunch of factors including very low water conditions and fewer wetlands, much warmer than normal temperatures, and a lot of shooting on MN lakes and wetlands in September has led to not a lot of resident ducks left around, those that are around not moving much, and a delay in the migration of ducks and geese from the north. The saving grace for this season for me has been watching my nine year old son graduate from coming with and watching, to fully participating. Practice shooting and calling this summer has him calling and harvesting birds with a 20 gauge, and a pair of waders has him helping with decoy set up and take down. He has shot his first duck of multiple species already, and his Dad and Grandpa have managed a few ducks while letting Parker take the singles that have come in. This past weekend, we finally saw some migrating flocks of canvasbacks and gadwalls, so the calendar migration is starting, albeit a couple weeks late. Should be some good pushes of ducks into MN the next couple weeks, so good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      You sound a little conflicted. 😉   It took me a long time to be content with not having the freedom of my early 20’s; fishing and hunting as much as I wanted and at a moment’s notice.  But don’t regret a single day you have on this earth.  There’s something great about every day.  It’ll come back to you while you make the most of everything else in life.

      I took Gimruis to mean that he regrets working full time....me too! 🤣   On my next lake trip, I am hoping to figure out where the mice are getting into my sauna. I also am planning to fish at least one solid day on Vermilion this fall. I don't seem to have great luck this late but I feel compelled to make the effort when the opportunity arises.

      🤔 so gimruis, I read this as you regret getting married and having kids???

      I went fishing for the final time this season yesterday.  It was not very good.  Its the latest I've fished in a season for many years though because its been so warm out.   I decided not to duck hunt again this season based on the lack of success I've had in recent years.  By the reports I've heard locally, I made the right decision.   Between a full time job, yard work, going to the gym, and being a responsible Father/Husband, I don't get as much time to do what I want to anymore.  That's just the reality of it.  Sometimes I regret the decisions I've made on that, but now I'm stuck with it and its a necessary evil.  Retirement is still 20+ years away.  But I did go fishing 31 times this past season and I'm taking the whole week off to deer hunt.  After deer hunting I'll be pheasant hunting until the end of the year.   I'm grateful for my health and my mental ability that allow me to continue to do the things I enjoy, albeit not as much as I used to.   I try to post on here when I have successful days of fishing or hunting.  Sometimes it seems like the only fishing updates for weeks on end come from Vermilion.

      🤣 neighbors don't bow hunt and they might just get a deer iffin a deer happens to run over them.😉   Thanks!!👍
    • Wanderer
      Is that that little guy at the feeder with the cr*ppy rack?    Your neighbor got the ‘tirdy pointer last weekend with his bow. 😉😝   Good luck Smurfy!
