    It's going to come down to the wire this week.
    If the Packers can't trade him, Favre is going to show up at camp.
    If this happens, there is no way they can sit Favre. I'm sorry, but if that team actually starts Rodgers over Favre I will be furious. As a fan I want to win, and I don't care how bad Favre screwed the team. He's better than Rodgers and the Packers have a great shot at winning the NFC this year.

    So I say if they don't trade him this week then expect Favre to start for the Packers this year.

    Favre is getting on my nerves. All he is doing is hurting his legacy.I actually think he will end up with another team.The Madden cover will be ruined if he goes to another team.

    I don't think he cares about what other people think of him, he just wants to play football.

    I love how when this story first came out everyone was with the Packers. Polls on NFL.com and ESPN.com showed it was around 60-70% wanted Favre to stay retired.
    Now, after the Packers completely blundered the situation, a huge amount of support has gone back to Favre.
    The NFL off-season would be so boring with Favre :)

    It reminds me of a shady break up... guy calls it quits. girl finds another guy. guy really doesnt want to leave girl after life without her. girl moves on. guy wants to move on but wants his lettermen jacket back. girl doesnt want guy tto move on with other girl... u get the picture.

    I personally like Favre (eventho ima gmen fan for life), but in any other jersey.. it wouldnt be... the same favre.  if he goes anywhere, go to the vikings. that would be sweet. week 1 - favre vs packers. who seen that one coming a year ago.

    I'm so damn sick of this overrated guy, I just wish he fade away! Everyday, him and the Packers are on Sportscenter discussing about the same issue as it seems for an eternity.

    Look what happened to Jerry Rice. It sucked when I heard he got traded to the Raiders about 45 miles away.

    The ratings would be off the charts for that game if it ever happened.

    Overrated? Someone needs to go back and look at his numbers from last season.
    Plus, there is nothing else going on in the NFL off-season; Favre is all there is to talk about. SC talks about Favre at the start and after that it's all baseball.

    I wouldnt call the man overrated.. it seems like the hype of the offseason is putting his career under a microscope.

    I would have liked to see him go to the Bears or Vikings.  Yah know, to shake things up a bit.  The Pack would have never gone for that though.  To me the Jets seem like a strange destination for Farve.  Sounds like he had to go with plan B...or maybe C.

    I have a Jets fan at work and soon as it was suggested, I said i can see it happening. I wont say I 'babe ruthed' it but i had a funny feeling.

    I agree. with the Vikings, things would have been soo F'd up, you would only have to love it. My philosophy if you cant join em, be their absolute worst enemy. Vikings week one could have the epic.
