    I know we are all Favred to death these days, but it appears the Aaron Rodgers era might have to wait yet again...

    Let the circus begin, especially with the sold-out scrimmage tonight. :eek:

    Rodgers should announce his retirement.

    Given his history, he'll suffer an injury in the process.

    It's what they should have done from the get go. Let him come back, make it an open competition and may the best man win. I have no idea why this had to get so complicated.

    if it goes this way -- as well it should and must -- why would ANYONE be surprised? it's best for all, including rodgers.

    I look at it this way -- Green Bay's management was risking alienation of the entire city in the process. Favre has tremendous backing among that city's residents. Hell, he could run for governor of Wisconsin and likely win.

    Best to avoid the obviously bad PR move. It sucks for Rodgers, but if I'm his agent I ask for a trade if he loses the starter's job after competing for it fair and square.

    This is good right? I mean if Favre plays 90 percent as well as he did last year the Pack makes the playoffs right?

    And if Rodgers beats him out than the team is in even better shape

    Yeah, don't want to alienate the fans in that sprawling metropolis. The season ticket waiting list might go down from 20,000 to 19,000 people.

    Any Packer fan who still supports Favre after he has deliberately made himself bigger than the franchise (and thus, the town and fans), I question their judgment.
