Sports 1 and hb. Two guys that make some sense. All the trash talking and "Walt Disney" comments seem to boil down to is that Brett is back and they can't handle their own fear and their hidden jealousy of what the most exciting player and the most down to earth player in the NFL will do in '06. Again I say, imagine the number of teams that would be bidding for his services if he was made available. Also, he asks no more of his team mates than he asks of himself. How many superstars can make that claim?

It amazes me that people portray Favre as selfish and egotistical. Was he holding out for more money? Was he taking every opportunity to place himself in front of the media? Was he asking to be traded to a contending team and one with established offensive weapons so he could have one more shot of fame and Super Bowl?( Hint- the answers to the above questions are "NO"!) Gee, I wonder how many teams would have gone after Favre if he was available? Who would want the only 3 time MVP on their team? Once again Brett has proven that there is no "I" in team.

Farve selfish? What about the number of times he reworked his contract to free up money for the Pack? Is he complaining that his salary is lower than other QBs that don't have as much responsibility for a team's chance of success? With his cast of unknowns, how many times did they make mistakes in assignments and patterns, without Farve using those mistakes as excuses? Just think how much money the Pack had to spend on"Hello My Name is" tags so people would know who's who in the huddle. I agree that he is forcing Thompson's hand, but it appears this is necessary to get him to open up and spend some money not just for this year but also for the future. Remember this is the GM that said prior to last season that guards are not that important to a team's offense and that there are capable guards for the taking. To make comparisons to TO is absurd! It's like comparing Kareem to Spude Webb, Ali to Castineau, USS Enterprise to the SS Minnow. Get real! The NFL needs more Farves.
