Brett Favre "not completely healthy, and I may never be"

Brett Favre said after the ESPYs Wednesday night that he still hasn’t decided if he will play for the Vikings this year because his surgically repaired ankle still hasn’t completely healed.

“I still have a little bit of time,” Favre told ESPN, via FanHouse. “I’m still, believe it or not, not completely healthy, and I may never be.”

Dr. James Andrews operated on Favre’s ankle eight weeks ago, and at the time reports said Favre would need about 4-6 weeks to recover. But Favre sounds like he is not satisfied with the progress of his recovery.

“I’d hope it would be a little better at this point,” Favre said. “I can walk on it, but you don’t walk in football.”

But make no mistake: Favre wants to play his 20th NFL season.

“I would love to play and be the best I can possibly be, and that’s what I’m working towards right now,” he said.

The way Favre talks about his ankle, you almost get the feeling that he’s suggesting he won’t be healthy enough to start training camp with the rest of the Vikings on July 30 — but that he will be ready to go by mid-August.

    Lord FavRay creating some doubt in the media so that the focus stays on him. He must have had some advice from LeBron in being an egomaniac.

  2. GBfanForever says: Jul 15, 2010 6:46 AM

    what a great way to get out of training camp. You get hurt and then wait 5 monthes to have the surgery and suddenly its all “I don’t if I’ll be ready in time”. Everyone knows he a liar about these things.

  3. mustbechris says: Jul 15, 2010 6:52 AM

    the more likely scenario: his ankle’s fine, and he’s just an attention whore.
    ding ding ding ding ding, we have a winner!

    Don’t know why everyone keeps making such a big deal out of something that they claim to have come to expect. I have watched with great interest how it usually is the media that has created the “diva” as we have come to call him. If BF shows his face or sneezes, there is a reporter there to turn it into “news”. I really don’t propose to be a BF apologist, but the media experts know that having the name BF in the headline will cause people to click and read. I submit that it is the media playing the fans for the big fool more than it is BF. People who report the news, nfl experts, analysts etc. all have “twitter” accts becuz speed of reporting a scoop is now the expected and if you can get BF’s name in somewhere, people will read it.

  8. shaggeez says: Jul 15, 2010 7:12 AM

    omg he won’t be ready by training camp?
    but how will he be able to perform at a high level now…how tragic

  9. FNGS says: Jul 15, 2010 7:16 AM

    Same old same old. Who really cares, he will be playing by the start of regular season. Can we just move on, and not a Mike Vick artical.

Come on Jimmy pour it on write a paragraph about how bad the Vikings are and why favre sucks it’s inevitable. If you weren’t so concerned with the Vikings maybe you’d have time to write posts about your beloved fudge-packers and your true love, Bobby Nelson. Eat a fat one Jimmy!! Preparation H will help your fanny grief for what Bob nelson did to you under your sheets!

    Brett Farve, drama??? Heaven forbid!

    Way to push those wranglers Bert Favre.

  19. smithopher says: Jul 15, 2010 8:10 AM

    Nothing to see here… Favre was at the ESPY’s, reporters saw him and asked questions, that’s what he said. Wasn’t going out of his way to make a statement or anything I don’t think. Could just be posturing himself to justify not reporting to workouts until August sometime.

  20. sand0 says: Jul 15, 2010 8:19 AM

    Brett Favre is to the NFL as LOST was to television. Sure people have slowly lost interest over time. But what had them hooked in the first place was an endearing character and never ending mysteries.
    The media creates these stories and blows everything up. Brett just waits to the last minute because he can and I think he does enjoy the attention as well.
    Not to make excuses for both of them but is it really so bad this way? Seriously what the hell else would we be following right now other than raplisburger? Sid’s hip? Packer’s financial decline? Booooring.
    Give me the wishy washy 41 year old NFC North dreamcrusher until a more interesting story comes along.

    Is he talking about his psychotic personality probably never being healthy again or his body? His obsession with Ted Thompson is entertaining though and in a way it’s great to see the Favre train-wreck.

  25. bayou says: Jul 15, 2010 8:40 AM

    Just get back on the pain killers already and wash them down with a couple 6 packs of bush heavy. You will play again until your last pass is not an interception. As a matter of fact, the record breaking performance you should have been nominated for at the ESPYS was the interception record you broke of your own.

  26. mama tried says: Jul 15, 2010 8:43 AM

    “he’s suggesting he won’t be healthy enough to start training camp with the rest of the Vikings on July 30 — but that he will be ready to go by mid-August.”
    uhh, yeah!!
    He’ll be ready by mid to late Aug!! GAURANTEE!!!

  27. Steeler fans are tools says: Jul 15, 2010 8:48 AM

    Its messed up what he does every off-season. So sick of him dragging out “will he won’t he”crap. Just go away Favre, real far away.

  28. Ollie says: Jul 15, 2010 9:00 AM

    We all know that the attention loving Farve will wait until camp is over, so he don’t have to be with all the normal players that are below him and then will agree to play when he can just walk into a game and get is glory. The only reason he won’t retire is because he can’t stand to be out of the lime light and he wants his records to unreachable, so he can always be listed at the top. He is nothing but a glory hound. And to think I used to like the guy! I am sick of hearing about him.

  29. BrentFavre says: Jul 15, 2010 9:11 AM

    Put a picture of your ankle on the internet so everyone feels sorry for you. Oh wait, you already did that.

  30. LBPACKFAN says: Jul 15, 2010 9:17 AM

    Heck, 2005 or 2006 would’ve been “cute” ways for Pharv to “go out on top”. 2005 his cute little wave goodbye to fans @ Lambeau after beating the Seahawks 2nd and 3rd stringers…bimbo Deanna in a suite waving and smiling. 2006…Pharv crying on camera after the Bears games….touching moments.

    Brett Favre – The Decision
    Will He, Wont He… You Decide

  33. The Black Cat says: Jul 15, 2010 9:43 AM

    I’ve had minor ankle surgery and its no surprise to me that the ankle doesn’t feel right three weeks later. It’ll take 3 months and you still wouldn’t want to play football on it…

  34. JimmySmith says: Jul 15, 2010 10:00 AM

    This serves two useful purposes:
    1. It allows Favre to skip the two a days and the beginning of training camp. Favre can point to his injury when the other Vikings (AD and Rice especially) openly complain about the two sets of rules.
    2. Its a built in excuse if either Favre sucks or the Vikings lose more often than last year. There will be questions asked regarding why and it is far more convenient to point to BrINT’s ankle than it is to explain that McKinnie is over rated, or AD is working on his fumbling or Rice is not in shape, the Williams Wall has hit the wall now that they can’t take illegal substances or Allen got a real haircut or….. well you get the idea.
    Any real coach would not assume the prone position for a player, especially considering that player has throw an INT as his last pass of the season for three consecutive seasons, has played either a significant role in losing or flat out cost his team a playoff game for the last ten years and has thrown two OT INT’s in the playoffs. That is simply what a choke artist does so now you can understand why the Vikings love the guy, all they ever do is choke themselves. The odd part I don’t understand is why the Viking fans think this year is any different?

  35. Ambrose says: Jul 15, 2010 10:01 AM

    Favre’s performance last year was an anomaly, catapulted by the San Francisco game, which endeared him to his teammates and fans. Great momentum from that point forward. Ask Lance Armstrong how certain he was that he could still perform as he always had and how shocked he feels now..now that the plug has finally been pulled. Epic failure in the Tour de France and Armstrong was by far in better physical condition than Favre has ever been in his life…similar ages too. And Armstrong came up just barely short last year…just like Favre. I couldn’t predict that Favre would perform as he did last year, but me and a few miilion others predicted that he would have an old guy brain fart at the worst possible time…which he did. I predict that he will have a lot more of those..and they will be during the regular season…and the Vikings won’t even make it to the postseason. Confidence is only part of the equation. This is the year he loses it.

  36. LBPACKFAN says: Jul 15, 2010 10:06 AM

    I couldnt agree anymore. Throw in a more difficult schedule and it will be an interesting year (out with the Browns, Rams, Seahawaks, 49ers…in with Jets, Pats, Skins, Eagles, Cowboys, Cardinals, Saints….)

    Translation: Now I have a reason to skip most of camp and an excuse if I suck in 2010.
    Either way, what the hell, it’s better than the T-Jack alternative.
    And lets see, an organization that is patient, doesn’t create a big ass stink in the off-season regarding a roster spot and accuse others of tampering is showing favoritism and lack of leadership? The Jets and the Vikes have shown how to properly handle Lord Favre in the off-season, while the dumbass Pack organization set out a blueprint on how not to deal with him.
    Of course, TT and McLardy have shown great leadership and roster management this off-season by retaining a codine drinking D-lineman, a hooker assaulting DB, a drunk motorcycling TE and a tax cheat DB coach. Now that’s a classy, leadership-oriented and well run organizational offseason for you.

    Wow what a shock, the Vikings coaches, players and fans like a legendary QB who in his 1st year playing for them swept the Packers, won the division, led them to the NFCC game, while finishing 3rd in MVP voting.
    The real question is why the Packers like Erin Rodgers who is 17-15 and choked like a dog in OT of the Wildcard round.

  46. twizzlystick says: Jul 15, 2010 10:43 AM

    You Packer fans need to stop trying to take out your frustration on your team’s failure since Favre left. It’s not his fault you’ve gone 17-15 and failed to win the division or a playoff game since he left. Blame God or the Curse or McFatboy or Vampire Bachelor but quit blaming Favre.

    ————————————–
    He was at the Espy’s for what, seeing old friends and catching a Broadway play? The Espy’s is a publicity event, and that’s what he was there for. He knows it’s prime time media exposure and that’s what he’s there for. Favre is a brand, and he’s looking to keep his brand in the public eye. The waffling he does has become a moneymaker. Do you think he would have gotten the Sears commercial if he behaved like any other NFL player?
    Mr Humble says this is the media playing the fans, but if BF didn’t want to appear in the media, he could easily avoid it. Obviously, when his doctor is free to share details of Brett’s medical condition, he has Brett’s blessing. He could tell his friends and family to quit talking to the press, but he has green lighted all that. It’s business and there’s nothing wrong with that.
    If anything is wrong, it’s that Brett puts his agenda first, the Vikings second. It’s not team first. but the Vikings say this is ok.
    Of course, what choice they have? Brett’s got their balls in his hip pocket.

    Brett Favre throws to high school kids, does not go to camp, and is literally playing better than both of them.

  54. ozzie41 says: Jul 15, 2010 11:34 AM

    When Favre was a Packer I used to think he wanted to always have a ready excuse in the event he sucked. So it would be hypocritical to completely abandon that suspicion now that he is no longer a hated rival. But, he is one tough son of a bitch. I’ve always thought that.
    I have never thought of him as nearly the look at me attention whore that so many NFL players are (see Chris Johnson).
    And, I don’t understand the concern by anyone about his not attending training camp. This has been done before by players with less tenure. If the team and the coach doesn’t have a problem with it, who the hell are you to protest? I guess they should have asked your opinion.

    Favre didn’t leave soon enough. The first year with Aaron was expected for a first-timer, so no big deal. His second year was more productive than any second year starter before him in the history of the NFL. Should I be frustrated about that?

    Viking fans on these boards who hate on Aaron Rodgers need a little history lesson:
    Brett Favre (your hero)
    1993 (2nd season as a starter):
    318 completions out of 522 attempts: 60.9% with 3,300 yards, 19 TD and 24 INT. (Pack’s record – 9-7)
    Yes, that is no typo: 19TDs and 24 INTS
    Aaron Rodgers:
    2009 (2nd season as a starter)
    350/541 = 64.7% with 4,437 yards 30 TDS and 7 INTs. (Packers record = 11-5)
    If anything, this proves that Rodgers is better than Favre at this point in their careers.

  64. twizzlystick says: Jul 15, 2010 12:13 PM

    And seriously Ambrose you’re not really trying to say Favre was lucky in 09 when he finished 3rd in MVP and lucky in 07 when he finished 2nd in MVP voting and lucky in 08 when he was playing at the same level till he tore his tendon. What you MEAN to say is that you hope with all your heart that something differeent happens this year and this is finally the year he falls apart or gets injured or whatever and doesn’t sweep the Packers again and deny them the division again.

    09 was Rodgers 5th year in the league though right? And his career record is 17-15 and 0-1 in the playoffs right? I’m not saying he’s a bad QB and maybe he’ll start winning playoff games or even play in the SB someday, who knows, but it’s really not fair to compare him to Favre who has a SB ring, MVPs, alltime records, etc.

  66. irishgary says: Jul 15, 2010 12:21 PM

    @twizzlystick
    Divas first two years with the pack he was 17 and 12 and if you want to talk about choke jobs in the playoffs Favre is in a league all by himself. Holds the record for most Int in a playoff game.

  67. twizzlystick says: Jul 15, 2010 12:28 PM

    irishgary, yeah I guess all Favre’s playoff wins and Super Bowl ring and MVP trophies were just a mirage, and Aaron’s playoff game ending fumble in OT after overthrowing a wide open receiver were signs of great promise and steely nerves, just like his int. to start the game. His 0-1 playoff game record after 5 years in the league is just a rumor.

  69. twizzlystick says: Jul 15, 2010 12:32 PM

    I do think that Rodgers has potential, what I worry about is that he’s in his 6th season already and hasn’t really accomplished anything yet and the average player’s career just isn’t that long. Obviously Favre is the exception to the rule. I hope the Packers have started grooming Aaron’s replacement.

  70. twizzlystick says: Jul 15, 2010 12:37 PM

    I know Aaron is already planning his retirement, I heard that interview he gave on ESPN where he said after football he wants to pursue his dancing career and that his dream has always been to star as Fuzzypaws in the Broadway revival of Cats.

  71. va4favre says: Jul 15, 2010 1:28 PM

    I realize that this post is supposed to be about Brett, but some of the nasty GB fans just can’t let it go. Whomever the dolt is who is promoting the Rodgers/Andrews couple was not watching the ESPYs where she was holding hands with her boyfriend. He initials are not AR. I do not approve of calling Rodgers “Erin,” since that is disrespectful to what he is, a gay man. His name is Aaron, but he should also openly acknowledge his partner who works for the Pack. If we get constant photos of Deanna, why not the mystery man? Florio–why are you not on this? My sources tell me that AR is not the only gay QB in the NFCN, and his initials are not BF.

  72. irishgary says: Jul 15, 2010 1:50 PM

    @twizzlystick /contra
    You keep Favre your future is maybe 2 years, we’ll take Rodgers and a future of probably 10 years.
    Were you as big a fan when Favre was with the pack?

  73. Buster Blueth says: Jul 15, 2010 2:15 PM

    LBPACKFAN has a broken heart over Favre not calling it quits after 05, 06, and then again in 07. How hard that must be for you LBPACKFAN. But it’s time to let it go, move on, and move forward. Time heals all wounds and I would think 3 years is plenty of healing time. Maybe I’m wrong.

  74. Ilovefoolsball says: Jul 15, 2010 3:04 PM

    Lord Favre doesn’t have to show up with the rest of the peasants who play for the Viking team. He is royalty, and royalty doesn’t mean equality. The rest of the players on the Viking team are the garbage handlers, Porta potty cleaners, or worse, Jared Allen.
    Don’t worry Viking fans if Favre doesn’t come back you still have that Jackson fella, he’s a stud!

  75. twizzlystick says: Jul 15, 2010 4:14 PM

    I’m not trying to be a dick about it but come on, the Packers are obviously not competitive with the Vikes and since they never improve themselves through free agency and Spielman drafts better than the vampire it’s pretty unlikely anything’s gonna be different this year. And now on top of that we get the news about the Packers withering away financially.
    I’m not saying I have the answers but I think we can all agree that it would better for the rivalry and for football if the Packers could at least get back to the point where they are competitive with the Vikes again. The Lions are still a few years away and it’s hard to know if the Bears are ready to step into the mantle of challenger for the NFCN throne, and it would be more fun if the Packers could somehow return to respectability.
    My guess is that if the Packers can manage to get back onto solid footing financially they could afford to sign some players that could help them, especially their decrepit and horrendous O-Line, their pass rush, their secondary and their abysmal special teams. Lets all keep our fingers crossed.

  76. new prague says: Jul 15, 2010 4:26 PM

    Mr. Humble is a BF apologist. The guy is a dishonest hack who needs to always be in the spotlight. The fans of the Packers have good reason to detest him. He lied about every aspect of his break-up with the Packers. Ask James Campen (O-Line Coach) how he enjoyed getting thrown under the bus when he tried to talk BF into coming back.
    I believe in the theory that he wanted out of GB and he created the entire debacle in 2008 in order to do so. He has no loyalty and cares about no one other than himself.
    To say that he is not a prima dona and that this is all on the fans is garbage.
    Let’s just see how this year goes……the Queen’s O-Line keeps getting worse. He’ll never last the year.

    New Prague-
    Being that you used the words “breakup” and “packers” in the same sentence screams that you are very distraught and will not be getting over your former hero any time soon.
    “Let’s just see how this year goes……the Queen’s O-Line keeps getting worse. He’ll never last the year.”
    This sounds very similar to the crys the Packer fans were making prior to last year, how’d that turn out? 33 TDs, 7 INTs ring a bell??? I thought it might.

  79. bluestree says: Jul 15, 2010 4:48 PM

    “Brett’s got their balls in his hip pocket.”
    I liked that so much, I had to repost it!
    Definitely on a par with TO telling Chilly “Don’t talk to me unless I talk to you.” is Brett going on tv after the the Carolina shebacle and telling the world “Chilly said he wanted me to come out and I said ‘No way!’ ”
    Change the name to TeamFavre!
    Chilly says “I told Brett ‘Heart of a Chamion’ “.
    Brett says “I told Chilly ‘STFU and go make me a grilled cheese sandwich!’ “.

  81. JimmySmith says: Jul 15, 2010 5:06 PM

    Good point about TO, I forgot that he told Chilly never to speak to him unless he spoke to Chilly first. And the best part is, Chilly obeyed his command.
    So Chilly is not really a head coach, what else is new? Chilly actually thinks T Jack Off was his QB of the future so that goes to show you what he knows.
    But Chilly does have experience being somebody’s bitch, first TO, now BrINT. Something the gay Viking fans can relate to.

  82. twizzlystick says: Jul 15, 2010 5:07 PM

    new prague, did you really just say “the Queen’s O-Line keeps getting worse”??? When 1 of them was a rookie last year and 1 of them was in his 2nd year and a 1st year starter? And 2 others were pro bowlers? And they were blocking for the #2 scoring offense in the NFL?
    Compared to the Packers HORRIBLE and ANCIENT O-Line that set an alltime record for sacks allowed last season so the vampire goes ahead and re-signs your 2 tackles this offseason for a FORTUNE even though 1 of them is 36 and the other is 29 and they both suck but they’re still better than anything else you’ve got?
    Really????

  83. twizzlystick says: Jul 15, 2010 5:10 PM

  84. twizzlystick says: Jul 15, 2010 5:17 PM

    I’m not trying to mock you newprague but you guys didn’t get a sniff of a sack against our O-Line in 2 games last year whereas Jarred alone got about eleventy sacks against your O-Line allowing Favre to shred your D, and you actually think our O-Line with a rookie and 2nd year player getting a year of experience might actually get worse while your O-Line with your 2 tackles that get a seniors discount at Dennys and were ridiculously overpaid by the Vampire to come back this year might actually get better???

    Brett, propelled by prima donna feelings of having earned it, wants to miss as much work as possible. He is going to try to miss as much work as possible until he finally does retire. He has been doing this for the last however many years and it is dispicable. It’s not about injuries, family, or age. He can say all he wants about being old and battered. If he can play a 16 game season, he can go walk around the practice field while the others are actually working. This guy is not an example of someone you want your kids to be like, nor are most of these spoiled rotten athletes.

  87. Dlem says: Jul 15, 2010 8:14 PM

    @ Twizzly
    The majority of your posts are meaningless as are Pervy and Contra. You have no success to fall back on so you resort to name calling. Psychologically I’m sure that makes you all feel like big men when in reality you are belittled to the world. I am curious though, what is this Vampire thing all about?
    You expose your sexuality by hammering on the supposed Gay issue which to me means you most certainly are of that sexual preferrence….not that there is anything wrong with that!
    You pound on the fact that the Packer Championships are meaningless yet cling to 2 regular season wins against the Pack and A Rods 17-15 record?
    You say the Pack is not competitive? By what infinite knowledge do you come to this conclusion?
    The Packers, despite any financial issues are in Green Bay to stay…you can bank that…..you absolutely can not say the same of the Vikings and Minnesota, at least not until the stadium issue is resolved…doesn’t sound good though.
    Fact, the Packers have a young up and coming team that you ever so clearly point out the areas in need of improvement….The Vikes are old and going in the opposite direction….you fail to admit that painfully clear fact. Oh, they will do all right this year but enjoy it while it lasts. You’re bottom dwellers for the next few years, that is if you have a team.
    Your measure of success is always 2 feet short of the finish line. The Superbowl is a terrible itch you can never scratch, You resolve yourself to that fact and lash out because you know the ultimate prize will always be just out of reach.
    You can’t post mindless garbage, take it back in a semi lucid post and gain any credibility.
    Why do Packer fans frequent so called Viking threads…topics? Because you minimally entertain us and we make every effort to bring some semblance of football education and maturity to you.
    Finally, you don’t have to “try” to be something you clearly are…..a Dick. and Contra and Perv(ert) are in your ball sack.
    The season can’t get here soon enough!

  89. new prague says: Jul 15, 2010 9:20 PM

    Twizzl dik and Misses Humble
    Let’s just put it this way. BF is going to be ancient this year. If you think his body will hold up…..good luck. He hasn’t had a sniff of post-season success in a decade…..he usually blows up. And……his best attribute……his once acclaim as the best man in the league is long gone. He is a bitter, petty, shallow man, who blames TT for the ills in his life. Pretty sad.
    He’ll be behind a line that is certainly in decline……reference AP’s inability to perform at a level higher then Ryan Grant last year. And that is with finally having a QB better than T-Jack.
    Face it ……your best chance to do anything was last year……and your big free agent threw yet another mortal pick…..we know all about it.
    The only thing is this……we have likely the best QB of the future in the league, with a young improving line, and an arsenal of weapons. We are moving up……and you are a dying franchise……with a prima dona jack a$$ at the helm…….and soon to be on your way to LA.
    I really feel sorry for you both.

  90. c.carterhof says: Jul 15, 2010 9:20 PM

    The Vikings are just a better team than the Packers right now. The only spot where you guys might be better at is defensive backs. And you’re gettin old there. Vikes average player age is less than a year more than the Pack.
    http://espn.go.com/blog/nflnation/post/_/id/24828/age-rankings-for-every-nfl-team
    Our team has been built for the long haul, look at our last 4 draft classes. Check it out, it will make you jealous.
    You guys got 3 SB’s, thats great. You got us there. But we are better, right now. I dont see that changin anytime soon. And anytime you sweep a div. rival…thats means for braggin!

    newprague, are you still trying to pretend that Erin isn’t a 6th year, .500 game winning, 0 playoff game winning choker? And are you still trying to claim that your line isn’t ancient and horrible? The Vikes will sack Erin at will again this year and you won’t touch Favre again this, which is why we’ll beat you again this year.
    The packers are in decay. The Vikes have improved by 2 wins every year for the last 4 years. Favre had possibly his best year ever last year and this year will be as good or better.
    The problem is your town and your team are just too little.

  93. new prague says: Jul 15, 2010 10:22 PM

    Such a weak response Twizzl Dik….and so telling of your intellect. Your LT is a Love Boat legend who would rather be performing tounge exercises on “dancers” than working on his occupation. Your LG…..Hutch……is a broken man…..no longer even above average.
    Your statement that Rodgers is a liability is the strongest evidence that you don’t have a clue. He and Drew Brees are the top QBs heading into this year. And yes Twzzl…..he has better WRs than you do. I would not be surprised if he threw for 5000 yard this year.
    I would insult you more, but I feel truly bad about the fact the the MN legislature will never give Zigmund a new stadium in a financial crisis and you all will be shipped down to SoCal.
    So sorry.

    Dik
    How do you feel about the fact that Ryan Grant had a better year last year than your beloved All Day……..surpised he still has his DL.
    Are you kidding me? The Packer OL is pretty strong going into this year. Clifton is 2X what “tongue the dancers” is. Our guards are young and improving. Hutch dropped off last year, and may get cut this year. Favre got a taste of his future last year vs. NO. He is going to get his tail kicked this year…..no way he lasts the year.
    Queens…..6-10
    Pack….11-5
    Bears…7-9
    Lions….7-9
    Get used to it.

    @Dlem
    You said “You pound on the fact that the Packer Championships are meaningless yet cling to 2 regular season wins against the Pack and A Rods 17-15 record?”
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    See – this is the difference between Viking fans and Packer fans. Viking fans concentrate on recent & relevant history that has a chance of predicting future performance.
    Packer fans (while experiencing full amnesia about their complete & total irrelevance between Bart Starr and the now-hated Brett Favre), crow about being title-town this and Super Bowl that.
    The fact is that you haven’t won the division since 2007. Which, coincindentally, was the last time Brett Favre sported a uniform that looks like something the Leprechaun from Lucky Charms would vomit up after a long night of drinking in one of Green Bay’s two “night spots”. And by “night spots” I mean the 2 bars where you can actually buy beer in a bottle.
    I believe I’ve seen a statistic where the entire franchise couldn’t even secure a Wild Card spot for something like 27 years? Could that be true?
    Well – the point is that Aaron Rodgers, who – in my opinion – gets high marks for creativity in ways to be sacked (NOTE: a drop-kicked fumble into the waiting arms of an opposing linebacker is an automatic 10) – is barely over .500 for the two most recent seasons. The Packers’ recent history shows that they’re getting older – I mean better – but someone in the division is looking for a Three-peat… and you know who they are. Skol.

  98. VikingsPrincess says: Jul 15, 2010 10:53 PM

    You said “The only thing is this……we have likely the best QB of the future in the league, with a young improving line, and an arsenal of weapons. ”
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    1. I totally disagree that AR is “the best QB of the future”. He’s year 6, right? Probably close to half-way through his career? That’s not much of a future. Also – not sure if you watched Matt Stafford much last year – but in the NFC North I think he has a lot of potential. You also must have forgotten Mark Sanchez with the Jets… who, I believe, got further than the Pack into the play-offs last year – right? With a rookie QB no less. Huh.
    2. If bottle openers, finger-cuffs, pocket dictionaries and bibs can be considered “an arsenal of weapons”, then I totally agree with your point.

  99. c.carterhof says: Jul 16, 2010 12:01 AM

    Last 4 drafts-
    Vikings- 24 players drafted.
    9 are starters, 3 players in pro bowl.
    2 ROY’s. 17 still with team.
    Packers- 40 players drafted.
    9-10 are starters, 2 players in pro bowl.
    0 ROY’s. 28 still with team. (Correct me if Im wrong, unlike Bob & Jimmy, I am not obsessed with my div. rival.)
    Now, I believe we should also count J.Allen. Since Vikes gave up a couple picks for him. That pushes us way up on yall.
    Who is better prepared for the future?
    Yeah, bunch of dudes talkin out their a$$. Thats what it looks like.

    GB may be considerable smaller than the twin cities, but their fan base is much much larger. Nationally speaking the Packers are one of the major football teams, the Vikings, on the other hand are irrelevant on a national scale when Favre’s not playing there. When’s the last time you saw the Packers linked to an possible LA move?

  104. BrentFavre says: Jul 16, 2010 9:56 AM

    @twizzlestick
    “And are you still trying to claim that your line isn’t ancient and horrible?”
    The only position on the Packers line that is remotely close to being old is at tackle, where Lang ( 2nd year player, RT , LG), Giacomini (3rd year, RT) and Bulaga(rookie, LT) are being groomed to take over.Mike McCarthey recently said there was a chance Giacomini could start at RT over Tauscher this season.With that said, non of these guys have proven they can play Tackle well at the NFl level.
    Other than that the Packers have Sitton 3rd year guy at RG (stud), Colledge ( 5th year), Spitz ( 5th year) and Wells ( 29). Not too much older t han the Vikings line. While the Vikings Oline is probably better at this point, I’d argue that the Vikings Oline is on the decline more than the Packers to tell the truth. Hutch certinaly isn’t the player he once was and who knows about McKinney. What noteable young depth do the Vikings have to speak of?

  105. twizzlystick says: Jul 16, 2010 10:33 AM

    new prikue, you’re not even trying. If you’re gonna pretend that your OL is as good as ours you’ll be laughed at by every football fan in America, your line was HISTORICALLY bad last year, what did Allen got, like 8 sacks on Erin?
    Our line, on the other hand, in spite of a rookie RT and 1st year starter C, blocked for the 2nd highest scoring offense in the NFL led by Brett Favre who went for 33 TDs and 7 INTs and finished 3rd in MVP voting. It’s just that simple.
    Your other comments were all too stupid to respond to. I get that you like Erin’s stats. Talk to me if he ever wins a playoff game.
    The bottom line is you guys keep losing to us and we keep winning the division. That’s not gonna change this year because your team is too broke or you g.m. is too cheap to sign free agents. We have 8 Pro Bowl players and 4 All Pros, you don’t even have half as many.

    brentfavre, I was just messin about Green Bay being too little and you do have a good fan base. But the truth is, there is no chance the Vikings are moving to LA because Ed Roski who is building the stadium there said months ago that the Vikings are not one of the teams that can go there, it has to be a smaller market team. The stadium measure will be passed next session, it’ll probably be a covered stadium.
    As far as the O Line, Hutch was injured last season, he’s not this season, McKinney did make the Pro bowl and our C and RT just finished their 1st years. I’ve seen a clip of Bulaga play and like I said the other day he looks like a tackle except for his 14 inch arms but maybe he’ll be okay. He won’t be a LT though.

    @Pervlystick; Speaking of drugs, I was just watching that movie “Traffic”. You know, the one where your little sister gets her freak on with that crack dealer. Raw, dude. Try Narc Anon, they can help her. Did wonders for Favre.
    Now if you’ll excuse me, my wife’s dragging me to the opera again. She’s crazy about Viking Princess. I just wish she wasn’t the last one to sing all the time. I’m getting no sleep.

    thirdanggoal you’re right. The average nfl career is only 4 years and Aaron Rodgers is already in his 6th year. He may have a couple years left but he’s already on borrowed time so he better try to win a playoff game before it’s too late.

    The team without a 40 year old Qb.
    Don’t forget to mention the Packers found a franchise QB in the draft, something the queens have failed to do.
    Oh and if you give the vikings credit for Allen in a trade, give the Packers credit for Ryan Grant who is a damn fine RB aquired via trade.

    I think all of the puff pieces on Rodgers this week are sickening. He has great potential, but so far he only has great stats. He is entering his 6th year in the NFL and will be 27 later this year. If he were a third year player, I would be more impressed. The writers need to pump up someone in case Favre really retires. His record in GB is only 17-15 and 0-1, so I would not him in the Hall yet. The Pack are up the creek if he is injured, however.

    If bottle openers, finger-cuffs, pocket dictionaries and bibs can be considered “an arsenal of weapons”, then I totally agree with your point.
    ——————– ——————– -
    Huh?
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Let me help.
    You were insinuating that the Packers were “chock full” of weapons. My response breaks down as follows:
    1) It’s sarcasm to indicate that I don’t believe the Pack has as many “weapons” as you think they do.
    2) Bottle openers are for all the beer the Packer fans drink – but maybe that confused you, because I did kinda mess up there… Packer fans drink their beer from plastic cups & cans. No bottle-openers needed.
    3) The term “Finger-cuffs” was a reference to the movie Chasing Amy. You’ll have to look that one up yourself and imagine AR in the Joey Lauren Adams role.
    4) Pocket dictionaries are what Packer fans need to carry when the Vikings and their fans come to town so that they (the Packer fans) might be able to comprehend the multisyllabic words used by the Minnesotans.
    5) Bibs are for catching sauces and other things that might fall from the mouths of Packer fans during the game as they wail in frustration when Jared Allen sacks AR for a 4th time.
    None of those “weapons” are an actual football player on the Packer team. Hopefully this helps.

    See – this is the difference between Viking fans and Packer fans. Viking fans concentrate on recent & relevant history that has a chance of predicting future performance.

    Recent history? What does 27 years of playoff drought have to do with recent history? Why refer to that when anything else including previous championships is irrelevant…but hey, rely on anything that gives your ptifull franchise relevance Recent history says that niether the Pack nor the Vikes made it to the Superbowl last year…so they both failed.
    As far as the uniform comment please don’t start me on the purple jokes, we might be here all day and Twizzle doesn’t have the attention span for that. Now please, take out that dirt between your cheek and gum (skol), brush your teeth, buy a gallon of Nair, a case or two of Grain Belt beer and have a body hair removal party with your firends.

    You are right about one thing though. The Vikings probably won’t move to L.A. After all, why would L.A. want them?
    A covered stadium? Why don’t we just play flag football!

    I merely brought up the 27 years sans playoff appearance for the Packers because I was discussing the Packer fans’ inability to remember it when they’re shouting about what a tremendous legacy the team has. The fact is there wasn’t anything going on in GB for 3 decades. I don’t care about it at all. The part that is relevant is that the Packers haven’t won the division in the last 2 years.
    There are varying degrees of failure. I’d say making it to the NFC Championship game with a QB who joined late in the preseason and was in his first year with the organization is a pretty successful run, no matter how you cut it.
    Look at Jay Cutler & his first year at Chicago. His first year in Chicago vs. Brett’s first year in MN…. those are two completely different levels of success.

    Hutch dropped off last year, and may get cut this year. Favre got a taste of his future last year vs. NO. He is going to get his tail kicked this year…..no way he lasts the year.
    __________________________________
    Aside from saying ‘year’ 5x in this paragraph, nothing else you say is relevant. Hutchinson – who is the best interior lineman in the game – will not get cut this year, his performance fell last season sure, but he’d still be miles ahead of any OL on the Packer’s roster, and his fall was due to shoulder injuries and he’s had that taken care of this offseason. Secondly, while I do think McKinnie is overrated, he’s still far superior to Clifton. And if Favre’s future is coming back (to play football) after being, for lack of a better term, manhandled, then I think we’ll be OK.

    @ Vikings Princess
    So why do the Viking titles the last 2 years mean more that the Packer titles between 2002, 2003 and 2004 and 2007. Every one of them is in the past and means absolutely nothing. There are far more pertinent variables that will effect a teams season that their most recent records.
    As far as a fan is concerned if you are happy with a visit to the NFCCG than more power to you.
    Trying to compare Favre and Cutler’s first years with their new teams is like comparing fillet mignon with ground chuck. But if you want to do so consider the fact that Favre did not have to learn a new offense and was playing in the romper room dome. He arguably also had a great deal more talent surrounding him.
    So can you agree with me last years records mean nothing going forward. Let’s see how the games play out before we crown a division much less a superbowl champion!

    The last 2 years are far more relevant from a predictive standpoint than 2002, 2003, 2004 & 2007. A lot has changed for the Packers since that time period, not the least of which is that your former QB is now my current QB. For 2010, the Vikings are basically the same team we had last year – minus Chester Taylor (which I’m still pissed off about).
    As far as records go – I only care about this season – and I’m expecting a good one based on the fact that this team already has a season working together. So yes – we have a concensus on this point.
    Regarding the NFCCG – yes, that was a painful loss. I still cannot watch a highlight video of it even though there were many times the Vikings played brilliantly.
    I don’t blame Brett because there were so many other mistakes that were equally as critical. I know he’s a favorite target for Packer fans because of the INT, but putting the loss on his shoulders isn’t accurate. I hold the team & the coach accountable as a unit.
    That being said, 2009 was by far my favorite year of football since I was a child in the 70′s. I looked forward to every game. I could not wait for game time. The games were exciting. We made the play-offs, had a bye during Wild Card week and kicked the crap out of the Cowboys and made Keith Brooking cry like a baby. What’s not to like about that?

    Your posts are refreshing for the most part you avoid the crap we come to expect from many of the Viking fans. Kudos to the Viking success of last year. Let’s see what happens this coming season. Should be another good one with both teams being forecast to go deep into the playoffs….I do hope for some revenge regardless of who your quarterback is.
    Per(ert) could take a lesson from you!
