Favre calls Packers game "one of 16"

Getting one win against the Packers doesn’t mean that Brett Favre relishes talking about facing his former team.

Favre was subdued Wednesday in his weekly press conference, similar to his approach before the first Packers-Vikings tilt.  Of course, this one is at Lambeau Field, which is sure to bring a host of emotions to the surface for everyone in the house Sunday.  Or not.  According to Favre, he thinks his emotions won’t be as bad as they were in the Metrodome. 

“But there’s no sentiments, really, one way or the other. We need to win this football game,” Favre said.

Favre is peddling the standard just another game line. He called the matchup just “one of 16″ before recognizing its importance for “a lot of reasons.”

Juicy melodrama aside, Sunday’s game is huge because Minnesota can put a stranglehold on the NFC North with a win.  A Vikings victory would put the Packers two games behind in the loss column and they would lose the head-to-head tiebreaker. 

The game’s buildup will still largely be framed on Favre’s relationship with the Packers faithful and its organization.  Favre says he hasn’t thought about what the trip will be like “as much as you may think.”

Here’s more of Favre in his own words from Wednesday.

On whether he’s hurt by fans who don’t like him any more: “No, because in my opinion, if you’re a true fan, you’re a true fan.” 

On those people who have jumped ship: “What can I do? And I’m not gonna concern myself with it.”

On how things worked out with the Packers last year: “I totally understood the direction they wanted to go in. . . . It’s probably worked out best for both sides.” 

Much of Favre’s appeal throughout his career has come from being an open book with the media, and thus, the fans.  Favre’s reasons for keeping things close to the vest this week and this season are understandable. 

But it would be great to hear how he really feels.

    Im a true panthers fan, through think and thin…
    With that said I’ve always followed Favre and respected the way he’s carried himself and the way the man plays the game. As far as im concerned his “reputation” was never tarnished by the whole Jets and Minnesota thing. Not his fault the team wanted to move along without him. Hell the team offered him something like 50million to not return to football when the guy clearly wanted to continue his play.

    “But it would be great to hear how he really feels.”
    Rosenthal, you have been hanging around Lord Florio too long. All you are doing is trying to stir up controversy where there is none.
    Who is anyone to say what Farve is thinking beyond what he is saying? I seriously doubt anyone at PFT has the ability to get into his head and discover what he is thinking.
    Of course, all the packer backers will jump in now, with their so called hatred toward the Vikings/Favre. Too bad none are listening to their mayor!

    Wait a minute, did I just see the name Favre? Yes, yes I believe I did.
    Figured I had better get the obligatory comment in when seeing the name Favre.

    “According to Favre, he thinks his emotions won’t be as bad as they were in the Metrodome.”
    Riigghht. They’re gonna be worse. This is what he signed back up for. This is what he wanted. No, wait..This is what his daughter wanted. Hah riighht. Brett, don’t cry or get tearied-eyed afterwards at the PC. Be happy, this is what you wanted. Be happy, you got revenge(well if you win but still then you got what you wished for).

  5. SlipperyPete says: Oct 28, 2009 2:43 PM

    Can an article containing Favre quotes be considered news, because nothing he says is truthful. Every Favre quote should come with an “*” after it, then a footnote that reads “*Quote is probably not very accurate. Remember who is giving this quote.”
    Flame-on out-of-the-woodwork-Vikings fans. (The only thing “fair” about the weather in Minnesooota is its fans.)

  6. CincyJungle says: Oct 28, 2009 2:44 PM

    I don’t get all this loser venom about always wanting Brett Farve to fail. The man has proved with his play this year that he can still play physically so why anyone think’s he owe’s it to them to not play is beyond me.
    Oh yeah, he doesn’t participate in the offseason OTA’s or Training Camp and he makes a lot of money. You can see that has really hurt his abililty to play and produce in the clutch. I don’t hear anyone in Minnesota complaining about the money he’s making, especially not their fans or management/ownership.
    Oh, I forgot his most unforgivable sin, he’s said he was going to retire and came back, and even cried while saying it. OH NO!!!! How could he!!!

  7. Fan_Of_ Four says: Oct 28, 2009 2:49 PM

    Who really cares what the classless Packer Fans think? If the boo birds start singing when Brett runs through the tunnel I’ll assume they are meant for Ted Thompson for shoving Favre out the door. Green Bay owes Favre a lot for everything he has done for that one horse town. I have no problem with them wanting him to lose but at least show some respect for the man who brought the respect back to Green Bay.
    Sadly Teddy Thompson has pi$$ed all that respect away.

  8. nerd says: Oct 28, 2009 2:54 PM

    The dude is on a vendetta, because Ted Thompson wouldn’t let him dictate who the coach was gonna be, what personnel moves to make, the offensive philosophy, etc.
    Favre had a tantrum and has done everything he could to destroy the Packers team, split the fan base and turn everyone against the coach and the general manager.
    He’s a bitter psycho like a spurned preteen girl.
    The worst thing that ever happened to Favre is he lost his father. Big Irv kept Favre’s head on straight. Now he’s got his agent and his mustache-sporting wife whispering in his ear.

  9. j4a1 says: Oct 28, 2009 2:54 PM

    I think Favre is in for a HUGE surprise on Sunday. He has become the Elvis of the NFL…surrounded by ass kissers that tell him how great he is and fawn over him constantly. “No Boss…you still got it. You’re still the gunslinger. You are the greatest.” I think he truly believes he will ride in the returning hero and feel the love of the Packer faithful.
    Instead he will feel the rath of the Packer faithful.
    Sunday is the chance for all those loyal fans who made Favre and his family wealthy and popular to tell ole Brett just what they think of him trying to “stick it” to them.
    Sorry Elvis…you DO look fat in that jump suit…and we just don’t like you anymore.

  10. Hauschild says: Oct 28, 2009 2:57 PM

    Favre continues to prove himself a class act. Imagine if it were Ownes or Ocho-Cinco fielded questions like that??? Then again, most people nowadays don’t even understand or notice a difference.
    Make no mistake – the pressure of this game is NOWHERE NEAR the pressure he had for the first game. The first game, he probably didn’t really know what he had to work with very well. Now, he knows what his team is capable of, so I really see little pressure whatsoever. After all, a guy like Favre’s been doing this prefessionally for 20 years. I’m pretty sure he can deal with bitter fans with tremendous feelings of scorn.
    In Layman’s terms: Another non-story.

  11. Birds20 says: Oct 28, 2009 3:02 PM

    The packers are as much to blame for this situation as Favre is, they did not want him anymore so he left…can’t blame a man for wanting to play th game he loves any where he can….that being said, I think that when an athlete retires there should be a rule saying he must sit out for a certain amount of time (i.e. a season) this way he can’t keep retiring and them come back with another team…also avoids retirements like Junior Seau’s 3 day sabbatical.

  12. DocBG says: Oct 28, 2009 3:04 PM

    I’m sure he’s got a tremendous desire to win the game, the same desire that has him out on the field competing every sunday. the same desire that every player has.
    Maybe it is revenge, what would the response be if he just came out and said that yes, he wanted to stick it to TT for being a dumbass and thats why he wanted to come back to the vikings, would it really be that bad? Hell. I’ve done things purely for revenge over dumber stuff than that, I’m sure most people have too. (if you can’t think of an example, you’ve probably never driven on the interstate)

  13. NoRingsForYou says: Oct 28, 2009 3:05 PM

    The reason no one in Minnesota is complaining about the $ he’s making is because they’re so embarrassingly desperate for a ring they’re blinded by the false hope he gives them. As always Minnechoka……..NO RINGS 4 YOU!

  14. Deadskinsfan says: Oct 28, 2009 3:14 PM

    Wait…
    Brett Favre used to play for the Packers?
    And now he plays for the Vikings?
    Wish ESPN would have noticed this storyline when he played them on MNF.

  16. Stroik Force says: Oct 28, 2009 3:24 PM

    Packer fans are just jealous they lost the Hall of Famer while he cleary has some of that ‘special fuel’ left in his tank. Packer fans try to hide their ‘sickness’ in their stomach by clinging to Aaron Rodgers who is just a decent QB in this league.
    The Packers and their fans are feeling the slide back to the days of (John Hadl, Lynn Dickey, Randy Wright, Don Majkowski). Yeah….they’re 4-2 but look at how they got there (Barely squeeked out a home victory vs. Bears, Lost to Bengals at home, Beat Ofer Rams, Lost to Vikes worse than score reflects, Beat Kitty Kats and Brownies IE: had 3 bye weeks in a row!
    Favre will dissect the Packers on Sunday like a Fine Brain Surgeon. Jared Allen will likely have 2-3 sacks (if not more). Purple Jesus will run through the Packers Defense Like the Melted Cheese I’ll be enjoying along with my Nachos as I watch this game from my 40yd line 13th row seat in Green Bay (sellout Packer season ticket holder) with my Purple #4 jersey on!
    SKOLE VIKINGS!!

  17. Ambrose says: Oct 28, 2009 3:42 PM

    He is licking his chops over the possibility of sticking it to Ted Thompson and he could care less if he alienates the very fans that supported him all those years. The fact remains that he and he alone is responsible for the fact that he is no longer the quarterback of the Packers. He desired a status that was larger than the team. People who are not familiar with the circumstances of the last four years (not two years) have no idea what an indecisive jerk he was and held up the ability of the Packers to make any future plans. If he wanted to play, then say so…in time to accommodate, not after camp closes. When management (and I, and legions of others) got tired of his schtick, they sent him packing…for good reason….they already have a better QB than him. I don’t care if he is the best QB at Minnesota,..good for them. He would not be the best QB in GB, not now. His fault for not staying. His fault a good Packer fan should wish him to fail, which I sincerely believe is very likely, based on past four seasons late year performances (not just the NFC championship.) He can suck an egg for all I care. And get off the “whining” bandwagon. Nobody (I know) is whining about Favre…we just consider him a jag-off. As I said, he would not be the best QB in GB, just the best jag-off in Minnesota.

  18. PurpleIsForGays says: Oct 28, 2009 3:48 PM

    @Twiz:
    Seriously moron. No matter the situation you expect a Mayor to come out and give his real opinion no matter what it may be?
    He has to play the political card, take the opinions of 10000 packer fans in the parking lot burning that douche bags jersey.
    The mayor hates him as much as every real packer fan. Suck it.

  19. rjaxx says: Oct 28, 2009 3:49 PM

    Not a Packer fan…not a Viking fan, I really just can’t wait for the day Favre is gone for good. I’m just tired of hearing about him and his whole retirement saga every year. I think he’s become kind of a joke.

  20. Gordon Tremeshko says: Oct 28, 2009 3:52 PM

    @ CincyJungle,
    I agree 100%. For the life of me, I can’t understand why some Packer’s fan are even upset. They have a fine quarterback in Erin Rogers.
    The organization wanted to move in a different direction. Favre still wanted to play. Favre went somewhere else. Favre wasn’t born in Green Bay nor did he attend college in WI (as far as I know Green Bay itself doesn’t have any institutions of higher learning – as evidenced by the posts from Green Bay fans). The Packer’s didn’t make him the quarterback he became. His career would have gone as well or better if he had played for any number of teams. Why does he owe them anything?
    I think the real problem is that Green Bay offers absolutely nothing to the world but the Packers. It’s an economic and cultural wasteland. The Packer’s fan’s lives revolve around their football team because they have nothing else. They may be ardent fans, but they sure are pathetic human beings if they can’t move past the fact that one of their players decided to play somewhere else when they didn’t want him anymore.
    Favre didn’t make anyone spend half of their income on #4 this and number #4 that. He didn’t force anyone to name their first born son after him. The idiots who did that deserve to get burned for letting their lives revolve an athlete.

  21. TheBaySay says: Oct 28, 2009 3:53 PM

    Personally I wish the crowd would be completely silent if Favre is introduced on the P.A. I think running onto that field to no reaction at all would psych him much worse than boos. But don’t the Packers decide which unit will be introduced? Why would they introduce the Vices’ offense? Bert loves to be cheered and he tries to show up anyone who boos him. The one thing that he can’t stand is to be ignored. Hope it’s a great game, but whether it is or not, will always be a fan of the team, not part of the cult of personality. GO PACK!!

  22. purpleguy says: Oct 28, 2009 3:59 PM

    I just want the game to be over so we don’t have to listen to the countless stories on the poor bedragled scorned cheesers whose hero has joined the dark side and dares to set foot on the hallowed Lambeau field. Just like the rest of the world, including the reasonable Pack fans out there, I’m just tired of the whole story. Luckily, it seems like there’s less traction on the story this time around. It would almost be worth the loss to have the cheesers crow about the win and the Pack is back crap than have to listen to the worn out “but we won a Super Bowl” a zillion years ago line as a mask for their team’s continued mediocrity.

  23. Fan_Of_ Four says: Oct 28, 2009 4:07 PM

    All Teddy Thompson had to do was release him. Why didn’t he because he knew that Favre would do what he’s doing right now and that’s riding it to the top once again. Thompson is the real moron here, well him and the Head Coach Mayor McCheese. You tell me if you wouldn’t be looking for revenge ? The Team you just took to the NFC Championship says were sorry we have moved on. Favre says okay fine then just release me so I can play elsewhere, Thompson says up yours, retire or I’m trading you. Noooooo nobody else would be ticked off over that, it’s just Favre being a Diva.
    Get yer brooms and your tissues ready Packer Fans, when the Vikings sweep the Packers you’re going to need something to dry your eyes with.

  24. Dave The Dude says: Oct 28, 2009 4:14 PM

    One of the biggest choke teams of the last 30 years (right there with the Eagles and Bills) combined with the biggest choke QB of the last 30 years. Yeah, this team is destined for greatness. And how many turnovers were directly linked to Favre last week? He’s already started to deteriorate as usual, just a little earlier than normal. Generally, he waits until the last handful of regular-season games and the post-season to start giving up all the game-killing turnovers. This season, he’s getting an early start. It’s going to be a heartbreaking season for Vikes fans.

    Ambrose:
    Sorry to say” you and the legion of others” had nothing to do with him leaving. That was a management call, not a fan call.( insert the fans”own” the team comeback here) ( Your “stock” is worth less than toilet paper btw).
    I also question why he wasn’t a “jagoff” last year?
    You are 1 pathetic fan.
    Baysay:
    He has proven to you fans already that he doesn’t give 2 wet farts about you.
    Do you actually think silence is going to “psych him out”. Come on , man!
    By the way, i really think you are in for a big suprise as to how many Packer fans will cheer for him when they see him come out.
    Not all packer fans are rabid automotons such as yourself. To think you are going to psych out someone who has seen everything in his career is purely hilarious. From reading prior posts of yours, it’s not suprising that your meager little mind thinks this will make a difference.
    No ring:
    You do realize that the losing team in the SB also gets rings( at least they used to).
    Kinda makes your screen name obsolete now doesn’t it? Oh well, your posts are obsolete of anything of substance anyway, you may just as well keep it.

  28. Dave The Dude says: Oct 28, 2009 4:24 PM

    @purpleguy:
    No offense, but as a neutral NFL fan, I’d say the Packers have a much better recent history than the Vikings. The Vikes are kinda famous for being chokers. Even with Culpepper in his prime and arguably one of the greatest WRs of all time, the Vikes choked it big-time.

  29. vikes fan in packerland says: Oct 28, 2009 4:33 PM

    The packer fans are quite pathetic if they can’t get over this. I have been a Viking fan my whole life and also became a fan of the Packers because of Brett. Watching him play is like watching nobody else. A-rod has the personality of a shoe. If I were a true packer fan I would give Brett what he deserves…a lot of respect. The Green Bay Packers would be nothing without Brett Favre. Admit it and move on and stop being such a bunch of whiny losers.

    Hmmm…. I wonder what tune Viking fans would be singing if it they were in the same position Packer fans are. I can only imagine; especially their history of loyalty and bandwagon jumping, I’m sure their behavior would be much worse than that of the loyal Packer fan base.

  31. Ambrose says: Oct 28, 2009 4:47 PM

    Chickenhead; the parentheses provide an implied agreement with the decision. I made no statement of a personally involved decision. Actually attending school beyond fifth grade could have taught you that. And he was a jag-off last year, and the year before that, and the year before that, and the year before that. You are exactly who I was describing when I said “people who are not familiar with the circumstances of the last four years (not two years) have no idea what an indecisive jerk he was and held up the ability of the Packers to make any future plans.” No idea. That’s you.

  32. Chickenfoot says: Oct 28, 2009 4:50 PM

    In the era of Free agancy you can’t be that pissed about players switching teams.
    No, it’s not as prevelant in the NFL, but it is still there.
    Who you idiots should really be pissed at is the Jets. Why would they just outright release him with no compensation?
    Case in point as to how dumb you are being.
    Randy Moss, Vikings draft pick, 1 of my favorite players, traded to the Raiders, Pack had a chance to get him, had he ended up there, would I cease to be a Moss fan? NO. Why? because I’m an adult . Grow up you freaking losers!
    Brett’s supposed to quit because it hurts your feelings to see him in Minnesota? Jesus!
    You people are bordering on psychotic. I can’t believe he hasn’t recieved death threats yet from that primordial soup of collective “intelliegence”( i use that term loosely in talking about packer fans).

  33. Vikes-N-Favre says: Oct 28, 2009 4:55 PM

    I bet Favre wishes he had been a Viking his entire career. If he was a Viking the past 16 years like he was with GB, he would have won more titles no doubt because the Vikings are a much better football team.
    He is having the time of his life now in Minnesota, and he probably is wishing he would have been here sooner. Its to bad for both the Vikings and Favre, because both missed out on better endings to seasons passed. Oh well, he is a Viking now, and he is loving it.

  34. JimmySmith says: Oct 28, 2009 4:56 PM

    I don’t get it, why does anyone think the Packer fans are jealous or upset or pissed off at Brent? Maybe a small minority are and on the other side is an equally small minority of fans who back Favre but most Packer fans recognize this is the business side of the NFL and the Packers decided to move on without him.
    The sad part are the Viking fans who somehow think that Favre’s terrible record in the latter part of the season and his playoff choke efforts are all going to disappear because he decided to wear purple.
    The wheels have only started to come off the wagon last week. Wait till OT of a playoff game, Favre can’t wait to throw that INT, its in his blood.

  35. Deadskinsfan says: Oct 28, 2009 4:56 PM

    Favre’s teary-eyed third (?) retirement this summer was disingenuous; he had every intention of returning at the end of training camp. But I couldn’t care less that he has retired and unretired several times. It doesn’t bother me, and I empathize with players who have a hard time letting go. The constant coverage of Favre’s every move is tiresome, but Favre didn’t invent cable television or the Internet.

  36. PurpleIsForGays says: Oct 28, 2009 5:00 PM

    @ Gordon Tremeschko;
    If your going to step in and run your mouth maybe you should learn the facts.
    First and foremost, It’s Aaron Rodgers, if you are going to step in and make the comments about an institute of higher learning, take your University of Phoenix Degree in being a dipshit, and go run your jaws somewhere else. University of Wisconsin Green Bay, the Phoenix for those who are interested in.
    Secondly its not that any fans lives revolve around Brett Favre, the fact of the matter is that he spent the best years of his career there, and became an idol to many of the faithful fans. If people feel betrayed because he is playing for the rival asswhipes across the river, they have every right. Not that you would know anything about being faithful to a team though, for the bandwagon fans of Minnesota that can’t fill up a stadium for the first home playoff game in a decade, i don’t expect you to understand how a true fan see’s things.
    The fact that you are calling Green Bay and economic and cultural wasteland about floors me, especially when you are on a football site. Name another franchise that has a 35 year waiting list for season tickets, and name another team who is not only supported by the community in where it lies, but also OWNED by the people of that community. The simple answer is you can’t.
    If there is more of an economic shithole that MN, I don’t know where it is. You can’t consistently support any franchise that tries to reside there. The Northstars packed up and moved out of town, along with the Lakers. Soon the precious Vikings will follow suit because they are the lowest profit generating franchise in the NFL. Can you tell me which economic wasteland team in the NFL was the only team to turn a substantial profit last year? Hmmm. I hope you chear as half-heartedly for the vikings when they pack their bags and head for greener pastures. You losers don’t deserve to have a team.
    Maybe you can file an extension on funding for a new stadium, just like the one you needed to fill your seats for the eagles playoff game last year. Im Out.

  37. Yooper says: Oct 28, 2009 5:16 PM

    I think we should have a drinking game for this week. Anytime they say Favre you have to take a drink of beer. Everytime they show a closeup of Favre you have to drink a shot. I doubt anyone would make it thru the first quarter.

    Aaron Rodgers? Decent QB? Really? Are you stupid? The kid threw for 4,000 yards in his first year, only the second QB ever to throw that many yards in his first year starting. Not to mention that he threw 28 touchdowns last season, only 13 interceptions. Thus far this year, he has 11 touchdowns and only 2 interceptions.
    and you define the meaning of hyprocrisy. You say the Packers are 4-2 because you say they barely beat the Bears, lost to the Bengals and beat the Browns, Rams and Lions when yet the Vikings also beat the Browns, Lions and Rams and needed a miracle to beat the 49ers and Ravens.
    So why don’t you get off the internet and go color in some Barney coloring books or something. Leave the internet to intelligent people, unlike yourself.

  39. sand0 says: Oct 28, 2009 5:20 PM

    Packers sucked for a couple decades, then came Brett. They were good the whole time he was there. Then left Brett. They go 6-10 and finish 4 games and a tie breaker behind a team quaterbacked by Tavaris and Gus.
    That’s why they are so sensitive about this and whine constantly on anything Brett or Vikings related. They hate that Brett and the Vikings are the ones smiling about it.
    Vikings win this week and they take a 3.5 game lead over the Packers (when you consider tiebreaker) with 8 left, 5 at home, and the easier half of their schedule.
    If your beloved slackers lose this weekend you will be very, very sad and no doubt will make endless excuses for weeks to come. I can’t wait.

    @Dave The Dude
    History doesn’t mean a thing in professional sports. Look at how many times Denver lost in the Super Bowl before they won a couple. Teams change year to year. The average NFL career lasts three years. There is a huge amount or turnover between NFL teams. The Vikings (and just about every other NFL team) have different owners, different coaches and different rosters than they had a decade ago. It makes zero sense to say that a team that didn’t live up to expectations in 1998 or 1976 is somehow forever tarnished as a choker, unless you really believe in curses, in which case you should be watching Ghost Hunters instead of sports.

    As far as fans of the Vikings being bandwagon jumpers, that might be the case for some. I have been a fan of the Vikings for 30 years and never jumped on and off any bandwagon.
    The way Packers fans are going on and on about Favre is a joke. THE PACKERS NO LONGER WANTED HIM. Get over it. You have a good QB, so follow him and get over complaining about a QB you no longer wanted. Some of you Packer fans are the biggest babies in terms of a fan base.
    Enjoy TT and MM. Maybe you should do come complaining about them.

    You know all these Viking fans can talk, talk, talk but in the end everyone knows what kind of fans they truly are; bandwagon hypocrites that rely on Packer left over’s to sell games and try to entice a new stadium for their bandwagon faithful. LMFAO! Keep it up you clowns…I think we all know who will have the last laugh in the end, be patient Packer fans you will have your counter revenge.

    You Packer fans are sad sad people. Really! Bottom line is you all fell in love with YOUR Favre. Every time I went to lambeau for a game I could almost puke at the idolization of #4. BUT now he is gone!! AND YOU ARE ALL SCORNED LOVERS!!! YOUR Favre was NEVER in love with you! It’s a game and it’s a business. It is not a love affair. You will all eventually heal……LOL……….it just takes time. When he walks onto the tundra Sunday you will not know whether to cry or smile, boo or cheer. If you had half a brain you would give this man the standing ovation he deserves. But that will not happen because you are all jilted lovers. Like hating on the ex cause she left you for the better man down the street cause you wouldn’t pay attention to her. Does that make her trash? Makes you an idiot! Favre belongs to another now. He was good for you when you had him. Use your brains and treat the man with respect. Thank him!

    @ nerd- Well maybe Ted should have let Favre run the show. Where have you gone,drafted,or picked up for free agency since? The Pack is as big of a joke as you douches in the state that think Favre actually spends one second of the day remembering any of you! He feels like the kid that used to always get coal for xmas but now got the bike he always wanted because Zig isn’t a cheap puke like Thompson. He is on a REAL team now.
    @j4a1- LOL See what I mean?? You really think Favre gives a rats ass about hillbillys in WI? It’s YOU that is so worried about how he feels when he comes there. He’s a Vike now tool,could care less about his Pack reception. He is freakin Elvis too. Performing at a high level that gets your panties in a bunch! Go watch some more LMN sensitive Nancy.
    @ Ambose – Call me when Aaron Rodgers is better than Favre. That means I’ll never hear from you! Thank God!
    @Purpleassisforu2kiss- You said it best.10000 Pukers burning the douches jersey.Singing Kumbaya and holding hands. I feel the pain of all you cupcakes. Need a tissue???
    @ Dave the Douche- WTF??? Get your Subaru driving ,tree hugging ass back to the Seahawk thread(if their is one). This discussion is for REAL teams! Still picking up Midwest reject chicks that flee to Seattle? You said it tool, just wondering how it was going? Seatle fans are the “true chokers.” On what? It rhymes with rock.
    Can’t wait to hear you whiners when Favre fails to mention anything Pack or WI after he torches you for a victory. Don’t be looking for him to acknowledge you.It will be all things MN baby!

  47. Vikes-N-Favre says: Oct 28, 2009 5:48 PM

    I guarantee you that Favre will not hesitate to say he is returning next year with the Vikings. He is having a great time right now, and he is on pace for the best season of his career. Its amazing that “washed up” ex GB players go on to have great seasons with the Vikings. Longwell, Sharper, and now Favre. Just goes to show that Minnesota is better then GB.

  48. MnMike says: Oct 28, 2009 6:11 PM

    Who is this Favre you speak of?

  49. Gordon Tremeshko says: Oct 28, 2009 6:16 PM

    @packer4life
    Is it Aaron Rodgers? I guess I must have confused the spelling of her name. I thought Erin was the Packer’s QB and Aaron was the ESPN reporter who had her privacy invaded. So confusing with these androgynous names. All I know is that she’ll be on her back this weekend more often than your mom (which is saying a lot).
    You make my point regarding the economic and cultural wasteland. Yes. You love your football team, and yes you have to wait 35 years to get tickets. That’s my point. They are all you have to live for. In most cities with professional sports franchises, you don’t need to wait 35 years for tickets because people have plenty of other things that they can do with their time. They can follow other local professional teams, go to a museum (a packer’s museum doesn’t count), take in a concert, go to a park, work in a building that is taller than two stories. Green Bay simply offers nothing but the Packers. How is the meat packing industry doing these days anyway? The town smells bad enough now. I can’t imagine how it smelled back when people actually had jobs stuffing cow carcasses in boxes. And how could you have enough pride in that horrid line of work to name your team after it?

  52. Sterling says: Oct 28, 2009 6:43 PM

    Favre is an amazing athlete. He has made every team he’s been a part of better – Packers, Jets, and now the Vikes. How many QBs could go in at the last minute, establish a rapport with their WRs, and go 6-0 out of the gate? Not many. The Packers went to the playoffs every year but one, I think, while he was there. He played with separated shoulders, broken bones, and many other ailments. Even played with a broken leg. He gave everything he had to the Packers, and he left it all on the field. They have no right to complain or boo now that he is with the Vikings. After all, it wasn’t Brett who didn’t want to play for the Pack; it was the Pack who booted him out. So, the Packers put themselves in this position. They kicked to the curb the guy who had done more for them than any player since Bart Starr. Brett has every right to play if he wants to play, and clearly he can still play. (Imagine how good he would be if he were still with the Packers, and throwing to WRs he’d played with for years!) The Packers have no one to blame but themselves for the fact that Brett is playing with their arch rival. He owes them no loyalty, since they didn’t show any to him, when he had given them everything he had for so many years.
    I can only hope Donald Driver moves to the Vikings when his time with the Pack is up!

  55. LBPACKFAN says: Oct 28, 2009 7:06 PM

    What is all this nonsense? Packer fans being pathetic…sad sad people. REALLY? We go to the games and are passionate about our team. Vikes fans dont even come close. You morons cant even sell out a playoff game. Nice stadium too….inflatable toilet with pipes in noise. Wow. That is funny.
    It will be kinda sad though when the STL Rams move to the NFC North when a certain team heads to L.A….
    GO PACK

  56. Obeah says: Oct 28, 2009 7:10 PM

    Brett Favre has just gone middle-aged crazy that’s all. wonder if he has a young girl friend or two on the side.

  57. Beer Cheese Soup says: Oct 28, 2009 7:46 PM

    Gordon-
    You’re right. The Packers are all the city of Green Bay has to offer. There is nothing else to do, and nothing else we want to do. That’s why we’re the most loyal, most hardcore, and generally the best fans in the league.
    How is meat packing a “horrid line of work”? Unless you’re a vegan, you should realize someone has to do it.
    It’s not a bad idea to name a team after a local industry, like Steelers or Chargers (credit card company). There are also worse team names out there like Browns, and if nothing else, at least they don’t wear gay pride purple uniforms. That would just be disgraceful.
    As for Favre, he can do what he wants. MOST of us Pack fans don’t care, it’s just the loud and stupid ones that make the news.
    I don’t blame the team for letting him go either. It was Rodgers’ time. Look at San Diego. Brees is putting the final touches on a HOF resume in Nawlins, but are they wishing they still had him? No, because now they’re set for now AND for the future with a guy who is every bit as talented, just younger. It’s the exact same with us. We won’t argue that Brett is still a great QB, but we don’t need him.
    All you Viking fans can keep gloating that you have him, (even though you called him a washed up pick machine not long ago), and you may very likely win this weekend too, but we still won’t care. When some defender out there ends Brett’s career for him (it seems that’s what it will take) you’re back to either T Jackoff or some rookie, and still with no secondary or sane head coach. We’re a couple of linemen and a safety away from being a perennial playoff contender. Even if you somehow win it all this year, I’d rather be in the position we are. Your eggs are in one basket. We’re set for years to come.
    Again though, not all Pack fans feel this way, just the civilized ones. Go ahead and rip apart everyone else like they rip apart #4 jerseys. The morons deserve it.

  58. PervyHarvin says: Oct 28, 2009 8:57 PM

    That’s what is so damn funny about you Green Gay Puker fans. You THINK you are such a storied franchise. You THINK you are the best fans known to mankind. You THINK that Green bay is Title Town. You THINK that you are a contender. You THINK the world should just bow down and hand you the freakin’ trophy.
    When in reality….
    We KNOW that the franchise is in chaos. We KNOW that Pack fans are a bunch of over weight, beer drinking blowhards. We KNOW that the town hasn’t seen a title since Tyson bit off Holyfield’s freakin’ ear. We KNOW that Ted Thompson won’t ever deliver a trophy.
    Chew on that Pack. Less calories.

  59. Gordon Tremeshko says: Oct 28, 2009 9:02 PM

    @Beer Cheese
    Now that’s a response I can respect. I can’t deny that you guys are hardcore fans.
    I’m no vegan. If it is true that the Chargers were named after the cedit card industry, I take back everything I said about the packers having a bad name. I’d much rather be known for packing meat than ripping off consumers with exorbitant interest rates and hiding the details in the fine print. That might be even worse than the Browns.

    Very, very mature.. How old are you? 5? 5 1/2? Either way you need to grow the hell up.
    and we are a storied franchise, we have some of the best fans, and we are TitleTown U.S.A.
    and when is the last time the Vikings won a title? Hmm? Oh yeah that’s right, you never have. And at least the Packers have fans unlike the hyprocritcal bandwagoning, fairweather losers who know nothing about football that call themselves Viking fans.

  62. Juan Corsair says: Oct 28, 2009 11:58 PM

    I bet Favre wishes he had been a Viking his entire career. If he was a Viking the past 16 years like he was with GB, he would have won more titles no doubt because the Vikings are a much better football team.

    You should all write Favre a thank you note. Without him on the Vikes,the world would have forgot Green Bay existed. At least you get some attention this year.We get national attention even without Favre. We got AD baby, a true NFL superstar.

  65. Chickenfoot says: Oct 29, 2009 8:57 AM

    You know what I think is funny?
    Is that Green bay got the nickname Titletown by having their own fans call it that.
    Thank your ancestors for making you look stupid.
    I know of no other person, outside of packer fans that call it that.
    Green bay is a shithole. Where do you flush that town?

  66. Ambrose says: Oct 29, 2009 11:42 AM

    Jack Yuenger first dubbed Green Bay “Titletown” after the team’s 1961 NFL championship, a 37-0 triumph over the New York Giants. Yuenger, Green Bay Press-Gazette advertising manager, printed the city’s new nickname on celebratory signs for fan distribution. The ’61 title, the Packers’ sixth of an NFL-record 12 world championships — and first under Vince Lombardi — was earned in Green Bay, the first championship game ever played in the city.
    Jack was actually provided with a headline from the New York press, after reading that a “little town” was playing in the championship. He changed a few letters after the victory and the nickname stuck.
    Everyone knows you can’t make up your own nickname.
    By the way…what kind of friends would call someone Chickenhead?

  67. Chickenfoot says: Oct 29, 2009 3:29 PM

    yep it was “titletown”………in the 60’s!!
    I think it moved east to Pittsburgh though.
    Now it’s just known as the asshole of Wisconsin.

    If this is true, please, please quit. You’re embarrassing yourself and making me waste quality insults.
    And GB fans are most often idiot enough. They don’t need to be emulated.
