Sorry Brett, We're Not Interested

Congratulations, Brett Favre. You've somehow put me in the position where I'm "against you". Even though you've given me 16 years of joy, the way you've acted the last four months has been enough to supersede the good times. We've allowed you to waver back and forth for five seasons now, and were sad to see you exit when you retired this March. As is the case when every relationship ends, we were forced to move on.

It's time for you to do the same.

I don't have too much else to say about the situation, except that I am 100% behind Aaron Rodgers starting for the Packers this season. This Favre situation has gotten too far out of hand, so much to the point that our season may be in jeopardy with or without Favre on the roster. If reports of a locker room divided are true, the affects of Favre's most recent indecision could be felt for a long time.

When it comes down to it, I don't think Favre will actually ever play another down in the NFL, I just don't. At this point though, it may just be wishful thinking. It's one thing to see him in a photoshopped Vikings jersey, but could you imagine him actually taking the field as the member of a team outside of Green Bay. Favre in a Bucs uni? Ravens? Redskins? Really, Favre?

Sadly for Packers fans, playing for another team may be how Favre decides to move on from this relationship. Eventually, that could be something we'll have to accept.

Just quit trying to make the Packers look like the bad guy.

(Great article from the Journal by Tom Silverstein about why Favre won't be in a Packers uniform ever again.)

That's a great article. I am so sick of this. I never thought the day would come where I didn't support Brett Favre, but it is almost like he would like to see the team fail if he isn't going to be there and wants to create an atmosphere where that will happen. Time to move on. I'm ready to order up my Aaron Rodgers jersey.
