Well, the first volleys have been fired. Favre is quoted as saying his current Viking team is the most talented he's ever played on.

His ex buddy and teammate Chmura shot back that "Favre the qb now is nowhere near as good as the Favre from 1996."

I don't get Brett sometimes, really. What's the point of such idiotic statements? That Packer team that appeared in two superbowls was good enough to cover his erratic mistakes and massive ego. And despite hype, this Viking team has to finish TEN MORE GAMES at least, then the playoffs, then the superbowl, and then win one! Something the franchise has never done.

Besides sticking it to Green Bay, I really think Mr. Meglomania wants to claim credit for bringing the first superbowl to the Minnesota franchise.

And visions of Elway still dance in his block head.

Aww shucks, he's just a down home country boy playin' a game he loves in his Wrangler jeans! Why's everyone gotta have a stick in their craw?
Right Eugene Wilson?

"In Minnesota, I finally feel like I'm home."

Honestly, what an absolutely staggering thing to say.

He really needs to get himself a ring this year or (*gulp*) next, for his own sake. He's basically spent the last two years taking a massive runny dump on his own legacy. He needs something to make that worthwhile.

Had he bowed out two years ago when he first retired, he'd be remembered as one of the all time great QB's and one of the great characters of the game on top of that.

Now, he'll still be remembered as one of the all time great QB's. Only people will also remember him as the self-absorbed drama queen who we all just couldn't wait to be finally rid of.

You have to give him some leeway to pump his own guys up. Farve is playing to try to win a championship. There's a lot that goes into that, and the mental aspect is one of them. It probably makes his teammates feel good to hear that coming from their veteran leader.

And frankly, Green Bay made their own bed here by pushing the guy out the door before he was ready to go. The guy is playing at a very high level and is a competitor. Why should he be forced into retirement before he's ready to go?

2005: 20 tds 29 ints
2006: 18 tds 18 ints

Each off season dragging the team along on whether or not he would return. Eventually the team needed to put their foot down so they could move on and appropriately build the team.

Because the guy backing him up was a better QB than he was and he refused to play backup QB, which would have been the best thing for the team.

You know I have seen many Broncos fans drag Favre name thew the mud why is that I remember him saying if he was to lose a SB he was glad it was to Elway he was genuinely happy for Elway .

Exactly... I get tired of all the back and forth regarding Brett Favre and retirement. But, he will always be one of my favorite players of all time.

He said the same thing about the Packers his last year too, that they were the most talented team he'd ever played on. It's all hot air.

One of my favorite football memories is watching a stupified Barve Frent wander off the field after SB XXXII while Elway jumps for joy.

BTW Is Britta still allowed to have a Beer and pop a couple of V's on a Friday night or is he still under NFL house arrest?

BTW Chewie still thinks that the 1999 prom was the best, he partied like she was 19 and it was 1999.
