Your tired of Brett Favre talk about as much as I'm tired of Mike Vick talk. He has his own damn thread on this site for crying out loud.
You think I like that? :roll:
Number 4 should not retire he still gives the packers the best chance at winning, and that is the only objective that packers fans should be interested in IMO.
He should've retired when he was still good, at the pinnacle of his career. Just like Jerry Rice should have. The four INT debacle against Minnesota should have been the sign that it was time for him to step away.
To say that the Packers "definately should be a playoff team next year" is absurd. They were 8-8 this year playing the AFC East and NFC West, you don't think it's going to be a whole hell of a lot harder to repeat that against the NFC East and the AFC West? Come on. I think it's entirely possible that every team dips in the North (except for the Lions, they can't get any worse), including the Bears.
I agree, I think it would be pretty dumb to say the Packers are a lock to make the playoffs next year.
I think if Favre returned and they stayed relatively healthy through the year than there is a good chance that they can make the playoffs. I think they could either duplicate their record this year or go 9-7. We have seen over the last couple years that a 9-7 record in the NFC gives you a pretty good shot at making the playoffs.
And on the topic of Favre retiring here's what I think:
I really think that this would be a perfect time for him to retire. He has regained some of the respect he lost last year and led a below average team to an 8-8 record. I think Rodgers has probably learned enough from Favre that another year with him around wouldn't benefit him as much.
Although I think it would be a perfect time for him to retire. It wouldn't bother me if he didn't retire, which I don't think he's going to. I don't really think that another year on the bench would destroy Rodgers. There has been tons of QB's who have sat to start there career for 3 or more years and they have turned out fine. Favre still loves playing the game and he see's that he has an improving team around him. I think he want's to help them as much as possible before he retires.
