Favre to Peppers: “Beat the Packers”

Bears Vikings Football

Though it may not have the same effect as Adrian’s post-coma, one-word plea to Rocky, former Green Bay quarterback Brett Favre had a message for current Bears defensive end Julius Peppers on Monday night.

Beat the Packers.

“I talked to him after the game,” Peppers tells Michael Wilbon of ESPNChicago.com (via Judd Zulgad of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune).  “I told him it was an honor to play against him.  He said, ‘Likewise. . . .  Go beat the Packers in a couple of weeks.'”

And so we have obtained another glimpse into the character of Brett Favre.  At a time when his current team has just been embarrassed on national television, when his disappointing final (maybe) season is ending, when he’s walking off the field for the last time (perhaps), he’s worried about the Packers for nudging him into his First Annual Retirement nearly three years ago.

Remember when Jay Glazer of FOX reported that Favre helped the Lions and Matt Millen plan for the Packers in 2008?  The report widely was denied.

We believed it then, and we believe it even more in light of Favre’s comments to Peppers.

    Fans to Favre “retire already”

    Favre, just go away.

  3. jaggedmark says: Dec 22, 2010 1:25 PM

    Favre doesn’t want the Packers to make the playoffs, while he’s sitting at home. (looks bad).

  4. stvhld says: Dec 22, 2010 1:27 PM

    Just shows how much of a jerk this prima dona has become. His I bear no ill will against the Packers comments are complete BS. He should be worrying about his sorry team winning another game & not worrying about his former team! Would love the Packers to win the Super Bowl just to prove to him he can be replaced!

  5. redrew says: Dec 22, 2010 1:29 PM

    First he said …”Cheese”….then he snapped a picture of Nuggets…then he said “Fudge the Packers.

  6. 4dabears says: Dec 22, 2010 1:31 PM

    I have to agree with ‘Favor’ for once… Beat the Packers!

  7. bordner says: Dec 22, 2010 1:33 PM

    Why do I still like this man?!!

  8. leucas66 says: Dec 22, 2010 1:33 PM

    If Favre wants to enjoy any post-retirement glory, it can only come from Packers fans. Vikings fans can’t even be bothered to fill their stadium for their own team most of the time. I hope he’s not thinking they’ll be inviting him to old-timers day and fawning over him.

    If Favre wants to destroy any remaining shreds of Pack fan loyalty, he’s doing a great job.

    Favre reminds me of the way a toddler will think that anything he says at the moment will be considered true, regardless of what just was said or will be said in the next moment. I’m sure in his mind, he believes he’ll be able to say in the future he loves the team and fans, just not current management, and it was all a misunderstanding. I’m not sure how receptive people will be to that kind of spin.

  9. ctownlegend says: Dec 22, 2010 1:35 PM

    we got you Favre, consider it done

  10. granadafan says: Dec 22, 2010 1:35 PM

    Further proof BrINT is a vindictive lying d-bag. He screwed over three teams with his half -decade long waffling over his retirement. He absolutely refused to mentor or train his eventual replacement, but instead went out of his way to intentionally shun Rodgers, who did nothing wrong.

    Wrangler cried on TV that he was “retiring” and the Packers drafted two QBs. Then he pulled the crap of his media whoring attention seeking stunts just before training camp by demanding to come back to the team that had moved on. The sexual harasser threw a hissy fit tantrum unbecoming of a grandpa when the Packers were put in the awkward position of potentially losing Rodgers to a trade if they let the diva back.

    Just go away Favre. Yes, you’re a hall of fame QB, but you’re also a hall of fame jackarse.

  11. molehillsmountains says: Dec 22, 2010 1:36 PM

    It’s shocking that a competitor is competitive. Wow, who would have thought.

    After all, it isn’t like this site doesn’t go out of its way to post every little story about people on its “naughty list”.

  12. packerjer says: Dec 22, 2010 1:38 PM

    Anybody who has followed Favre’s actions the past several years, really since his father died, shouldn’t be the least bit suprised by this. It’s vintage Favre all the way.

  13. steelnucs says: Dec 22, 2010 1:38 PM

    You are such a tool. So he gave some words of encouragement to a fellow player – is he supposed to love the Packers and want them to win every game? Man. The things you think qualify as “controversial” are beyond me.

  14. calloustongue says: Dec 22, 2010 1:40 PM

    Way to keep up the bitter old man bit Brett. Get over it already you freaking cry baby. Your whining is getting tiresome.

  15. tony420 says: Dec 22, 2010 1:40 PM

    Best visual of the decade was seeing him face down on the turf the other night.

  16. jtam963 says: Dec 22, 2010 1:43 PM

    Yeah I still dislike Favre

    BEAR DOWN and Playoff Bound!!

    Cheeseheads= JOKE

  17. qbcoach9 says: Dec 22, 2010 1:43 PM

    Who cares if he wants the Bears to beat the Packers and who cares if he helped Matt Millen gameplan for them when he wasn’t playing in the division. He’s out of the playoffs, his career has a max of 2 games left and then he can wheel his wheelchair off into the sunset.

  18. bucks12965 says: Dec 22, 2010 1:44 PM

    I’m sure Peppers will play extra hard in that game because Farve told him to.

  19. shelovesfootball says: Dec 22, 2010 1:51 PM

    Just goes to show you his petty brain is the same size as his petty pecker…small, very small.

    “He said, ‘Likewise. . . . Go beat the Packers in a couple of weeks.”

    If I got swept the way he did this year…yeah, I’d be pissed too.

  21. whoyouthoughtiwas says: Dec 22, 2010 2:03 PM

    every time i wonder whether its even possible anymore, dude makes the packers look better and better for dumping his ass. every time the guy’s true character is revealed i feel EMBARRASSED for him. i used to really like him, too.

  22. texasphinsfan says: Dec 22, 2010 2:04 PM

    While I’m still a fan of what he’s done, I can only imagine how Packers fans feel. Messed up to not only root against the team that made you a HOFer, but help other teams against them? Lacks class.

  23. gallopingghost says: Dec 22, 2010 2:05 PM

    nice of you to rag on the character of the guy, as you see from a comment he made. Who knows maybe he was wishing Peppers well because he knows beating the Pack is the #1 goal of our team.

    Regardless, you only empower his drama with articles like this. You are the ones at fault here, whatever you want to say about Favre for indulging all the media attention. Mongerer, I say!

  24. whoyouthoughtiwas says: Dec 22, 2010 2:06 PM

    and there’s a difference between “competitive” and “insanely bitter spurned teen lover”

  25. mkepackfan says: Dec 22, 2010 2:06 PM

    Wait, why not? The Vikings organization is pathetic & probably will retire his jersey. In fact, they’d schedule it the same day as the Packers just to stick it to the Pack…and Favre would probably go to Minnesota’s retirement ceremony.

    Plus their fans don’t have anyone over the last 20 years to fawn over, so they would revere him.

  26. waccoforflacco says: Dec 22, 2010 2:08 PM

    Favre is making me think of him more like Evel Knievel who always wanted to make that one last jump…broke all his bones and came back for more.

    I still think Knievel has more screws and plates in him than Favre.

    Is George Foreman coming out of retirement at age 60?

  27. SpartaChris says: Dec 22, 2010 2:09 PM

    Yup, and all you Favre ball-washers thought he wasn’t a vindictive prick. Guess what? He is.

    God I hope they give his number to our next kicker.

    ————————————————-
    So he has to train his replacement? Isn’t that what coaches are for? And F no I wouldn’t train the person that god drafted 1st pick to replace me.
    Same deal happened in Philly. Instead of drafting a WR or something to help the team win(because they had a franchise QB) they draft a QB.
    Sure he waffled after he retired, but if you’re so sure Rodgers is the answer, why go and draft not 1, but 2 more QBs? Couldn’t those picks be used on something more useful?

    So much blame is put on Favre, but it seems to me the staff in GB is a little at fault as well.

  29. packrulzm says: Dec 22, 2010 2:11 PM

    This is just another prime example of the way he thinks. The fans of Wisconsin gave everything they had rooting for Favre for 16 seasons and yet he still acts like a spoiled little bitch. All I have to say is this.

    Na na na na na na na na hey hey hey GOODBYE!

  30. childressrulz says: Dec 22, 2010 2:13 PM

    I never thought he could “taint” his legacy. People kept saying “he is going to taint his legacy.” I thought no not a chance let the man play somewhere if he wants to play. However two teams, some pictures, some texts, and some stupid comments are making this moron look like the white trash hick he is. I believe I speak for the vast majority of Pack fans when I say. Don’t go away mad Favre just go away (and die from a scorching case of herpes).

  31. darthvincent says: Dec 22, 2010 2:16 PM

    like we Packer fans care what some concussion-addled QB of an old man who’s half-in-the-bag into retirement from another team that’s homeless and already eliminated from the playoffs 2 weeks ago.

    Focus! Brett. Focus… ‘cuz the glaze in your eyes suggests you’ve lost it.

  32. leroysbutler says: Dec 22, 2010 2:19 PM

    The Packers should retire Lynn Dickey’s number and give number 4 to the waterboy.

  33. gregjennings85 says: Dec 22, 2010 2:20 PM

  36. andybean24 says: Dec 22, 2010 2:22 PM

    Oh, the horror!

    Fans have become so unbelievably sensitive! These are the same fans who call Favre a diva and a drama queen. It doesn’t get much more dramatic than to be overly offended by Favre telling Peppers to beat the Packers!

  37. rcunningham says: Dec 22, 2010 2:24 PM

    Packer fans love to kick and scream about how much they don’t care about Brett anymore…yet they still comment on his articles and wake up with tear stained pillows in the morning. LOL.

    leucas66 says: Dec 22, 2010 1:33 PM

    If Favre wants to enjoy any post-retirement glory, it can only come from Packers fans. Vikings fans can’t even be bothered to fill their stadium for their own team most of the time.

    And this is just plain not true. The last time the Vikings failed to sell out was 1997. Nice try troll.

  38. txbearmeat says: Dec 22, 2010 2:24 PM

    It won’t matter what Grandpa Favre wants. If GB gets by the Giants, THERE’S NO WAY IN HE.LL they lose to the Bears, on either 1/2 OR on 1/9 in Chicago.

    Not scared of the big and (truly) bad Bears.

  39. smoothjimmyapollo says: Dec 22, 2010 2:25 PM

    There I was feeling conflicted the other night. I almost felt a tiny bit of pity as his carcass was surrounded by teammates after he was slammed to the ground. The way he had been talking about the Packers this year, it seemed like his bitterness had subsided and he would retire and try to make his way back into our good graces. It appears that’s not the case and he’s still the whiny diva he was when he got himself traded. I’d go back to hating him, only my team is still in the playoff hunt and therefore still relevant. Oh yeah, there’s also no threat of them moving in two years because their stadium is revenue-producing, not falling apart, and the team’s fans will always show up to support the team instead of staying home if the weather is a bit cold.

  40. bradshawlives says: Dec 22, 2010 2:25 PM

    Take heart, Favre haters……….he’s nothing but a punchline now. He’s a loser on the field and off.

  41. kotcha23 says: Dec 22, 2010 2:26 PM

    Why does PFT publish this story saying Favre told Peppers to beat the Packers but they post a picture of Favre talking to Urlacher??

  42. favredongshots says: Dec 22, 2010 2:27 PM

    Yeah, Peppers. Do what I obviously failed to do this year.

  43. rayjayjohnsonjr says: Dec 22, 2010 2:28 PM

    Instead of showing his ill will toward the Packers(who paid him millions and millions), Favre should be more concerned about how he plans to handle his retirement(when he finally does retire at age 72). He will miss the glory and adulation continually sought out and bestowed upon him, at every wakeing moment, and will have a tough time dealing with it. Then theres trying to live with Grandma and the grandkids and explaining away the texts, etc. Favre, you screwed over the Packers one to many times and they finally got tired of it….so why act like a bitter dirtbag since you got what you apparently deserved?

  44. scoob766 says: Dec 22, 2010 2:28 PM

    I hope he plays this week, so I can see him get hurt again. Eventually this will lead to some sort of concussion syndrome (judging by his behavior he already has).Most overrated QB of all time.

  45. joerevs300 says: Dec 22, 2010 2:35 PM

    After all Brett Favre did for the Packers, and what he’s done for the NFL, it is a complete and utter shame to see him go out like this.

    Much like Mark McGuire ruined his career through steroids, Brett has ruined his career from both his wishy washy ways and his inability to realize when he was done. Now, instead of going off into the sunset off a playoff loss, he’s going to do it with his team finishing with a top 10 draft pick, a bum shoulder and ankle, and nothing to show for his last 3 seasons except bitter disappointment.

    Let this be a lesson: If it’s time to go, you need to go. People will remember you better for it.

  46. jimmysee says: Dec 22, 2010 2:36 PM

    If the Bears have the #2 playoff slot locked up by the time they head to Lambeau, Peppers may not even play.

  47. blaz0037 says: Dec 22, 2010 2:37 PM

  49. actiondanwi says: Dec 22, 2010 2:41 PM

    Poor Favre. He’s going to spend the rest of his life watching DirecTV every weekend cheering against whoever is playing Green Bay.

    All by his lonesome, too. Won’t be long before Deanna serves papers.

  50. shapechanger666 says: Dec 22, 2010 2:41 PM

    Do you blame him for saying this? You ungrateful Packers-pigs won’t get off his friggin’ back about one thing or another. LOL. And besides, Peppers said this. Peppers saying something doesn’t mean it’s true. Lastly, if it is true, this is the kind of thing you say to someone after a game. If they were playing Tampa Bay next, Favre would have said, “Go beat Tampa Bay.” All this is is just some stupid writer that want’s attention and a zillion comments on his article. The moron Packers fans fall for it, of course.

    You Packers fans are the most classless bunch of rednecks I’ve ever witnessed. This guy gives you almost 2 decades of great memories and all you do is whine about him. Your loser team let him go, he didn’t say he wanted to leave. Seriously, there are no bigger losers in the world than Packers fans. You’re all fat, ugly and stupid. Your gross little franchise is the laughing stock of the NFL. No one likes you. Nice green and gold flag on your cars, losers. Nice satin Packers jacket, rednecks. Nice brick of cheese on your heads, idiots. Your breath smells.

    ====================================

    The Bears are not playing the Packers this week. They are playing the Jets so why would he jump ahead two games to bring up the Packers if he were not a whiney bitch?

    I was really happy to see the Bears slam this tired old fart into the ground and end his career after throwing one last pick.
    I could not take one more minute of the ESPN clowns and their never-ending Favre tribute.

  52. skinsfan06 says: Dec 22, 2010 2:46 PM

    Most selfish, overrated player of all-time. Look at his numbers. You know where he ranks in career passer rating among ACTIVE quarterbacks? 12th….. Tucked in there below Carson Palmer and David Gerrard. For every game that he has won for his team, he has cost his team a game by throwing a costly pick. i.e. final game as a jet, final game last yr for vikes…

  53. toonsterwu says: Dec 22, 2010 2:47 PM

    eh, this doesn’t seem like the biggest deal to me. I guess, when looked at in the light of Favre’s animosity towards Packers mgm’t … perhaps there’s some underlying anger there, but honestly, it feels like a guy wishing another guy well. Do we know for a fact that Favre didn’t say Beat the Jets to Peppers (or another player), and that he was intentionally going around saying Beat GB?

    That said … it’s quite possible the game is of little meaning. If the Giants win, the Packers are out. It’s possible that the Bears have wrapped up the number 2 seed at that point (need a win and some NFC East losses in the next 2 weeks). If that’s the case, the Bears would likely rest Peppers, Urlacher, and other key guys.

  54. shapechanger666 says: Dec 22, 2010 2:50 PM

    Also, Favre didn’t ruin his career. In 10 years all those drunk, moron, smelly, obnoxious Packers fans will forget about this whole Vikings debacle and welcome Favre back with open arms. No one will remember him as a Viking, they’ll only remember him as a Packer. Do people still think of Jordan as a Bullet/Wizard? No, they think of him as a Bull. And no, there’s no difference in the situations that I’m comparing. Both are one of the best in their sport, both went to another team (to the dismay of their “fans”), both failed and both will be remembered as winners for their original team. Apples to apples.

  55. blaz0037 says: Dec 22, 2010 2:50 PM

    did someone say the vikes don’t sellout “most of the time”?

    Couldn’t have, nobody could be that dumb.

    I guess purchasing a ticket but then selling it constitutes fan support in Minnesota.

  60. cubEbear54 says: Dec 22, 2010 3:01 PM

    Let’s just blame his comments on the concussion. But we’ll do as you ask Brett because we’re still in a good mood after beating you and your sorry team on MNF….

  61. mkepackfan says: Dec 22, 2010 3:01 PM

    @ ditkaditkaditka – You’re right, we did. There was a time I thought that Favre was the best QB ever but have come to accept that Peyton & Favre are overrated. Brady is, without a doubt, the best QB of my generation.

    @ blaz & rcunningham – You may have 100 straight sellouts, but for the game at TCF there wasn’t a sellouts. There were more tickets sold than seats available and there were at least 6k open seats. You will blame the weather or say that people didn’t show since they may not have a seat, but if Lambeau only had 50k of their 70k stadium available, 60k would still show up.

  62. theytukrjobs says: Dec 22, 2010 3:03 PM

    Or maybe these are some sportsmanlike words of encouragement from one veteran to another.

    It is dawning on me that Favre doesn’t bring this “attention” on himself as much as people like to think. If this kind of comments makes headlines then wow, that just shows how obsessed people are with Favre and how desperate the unimaginative media is for a “story”.

    Is this site really so sad that it would try to drum up some worthless gossip about a team that isn’t even alive for the playoffs? This stuff was cute when the Vikes were rolling last season but it is time to move on to teams that are in the playoffs.

  63. truefan2 says: Dec 22, 2010 3:04 PM

    I swear. What a bunch of whiny, hypocritical, babies most of you are.

    You complain endlessly about Favre. But when ANYTHING is posted on him -there are a MILLION responses on this board. Only showing how interested you truly are. Geez.

    If you want him to go away.. STOP POSTING about Him.

    And as for what he said to Peppers… It’s a freaking non-story.

    How do you know he maybe just was trying to say to Peppers – “Hey you guys deserve to keep winning. Go beat the Packers and keep in the hunt for a higher seed”

    So easy to pummel someone when they are down…

    OK…I’m not backing up Favre here by any means but its real funny how the media construes comments.

    If I’m playing an opponent in hockey and just got beat by a rival i’m going to have no problem in casual conversation telling them to go out and beat another rival.

    I think that is all Favre is doing here…not taking a stab at a team he used to play for and is STILL angry at.

    People take his comments WAY to far and its quite ridiculous. If Eli Manning gets beat by the Giants and gets in a friendly conversation with Michael Vick while shaking hands…Manning could easily say go out and beat those ‘Cowboys’ (now i know that might not be an upcoming opponent this year) but I’m speaking in hypotheticals.

  68. hrmlss says: Dec 22, 2010 3:15 PM

    Packers-pigs won’t get off his friggin’ back about one thing or another.

    You Packers fans are the most classless bunch of rednecks I’ve ever witnessed. Your loser team let him go, he didn’t say he wanted to leave.

    Ding ding. We have a winner for the most idiotic post of the day! Yes, the fans forced him to retire, then unretire, then retire….No wait. It was Thompson who forced him out because he would not bow down to him…..

    You’re a complete tool who knows nothing about the one of the MOST storied franchises in football.

    Bitter much?

  72. tiffpats4eva says: Dec 22, 2010 3:25 PM

    Go away, Favre. Overrated, system QB, who only won 1 SB ring and has a little peen.

  73. vikinghater says: Dec 22, 2010 3:27 PM

    Check your facts. I’ve lost track, but it is well over 100 consecutive sellouts. think before you talk you tool.

    ———————————————————-
    How many of those sellouts were tickets bought up by Pillsbury or some other company round head. Were talking fans buying tickets. Its not 100 by a dam shot!!!

  74. va4favre says: Dec 22, 2010 3:29 PM

    I have real worries on how PFT is going to last after Favre retires. They may want to start closing down now. I’m sure all of the negative commentators want to have the team that basically kicked them out the door win the lottery. Favre is still bitter towards Ted Thompson and that is not going to change. He is going to be like Terry Bradshaw who did not show up in Pittsburgh for 20 years. I don’t find this surprising at all and do not think it merits this attention. I’m sure Tom Brady said to the Jets, I hope you win the rest of your games.

  75. jimmy1smith says: Dec 22, 2010 3:30 PM

    Big deal, who cares what Favre thinks now.

    He previously managed to culivate a good ol boy image but that largely went out the window following:

    1.) His fake retirement from the Jets just to get to the Vikings.
    2. ) His helping the Lions game plan for the Packers.
    3.) News reports of his penis sending episode.
    4.) Now this item.

    All 4 demonstrate his lack of class, actually just playing for the Vikings did that all by itself. While he could have enjoyed a second career in PR for the Packers, he flushed that away and that was strictly his choice, no loss to the Packers.

    The single thing that makes me the happiest is that Green Bay got rid of him. We were sick of going through the 16 game season only to see him choke in the playoffs and boy did he ever choke. That’s why the Vikings made the most sense for him, if there was ever one franchise that epitomized choking, its the Vikings. A match made in heaven. Now if he will ever shut up, we would be thrilled.

  76. vikinghater says: Dec 22, 2010 3:33 PM

That’s because he visited a kid with terminal brain cancer, and the kid sees things backwards. You all are the douche-bags, not Favre.

    You’re really going to count all of the times that Fox 9, here in Minneapolis, had to buy up the last 5,000-10,000 to make it a “sell out”? You true Vikings “fans” had ZERO to do with that! Suck on that one, Trebek.

    so you agree with leucas66 that the “Vikings fans can’t even be bothered to fill their stadium for their own team most of the time.”?

    The majority of NFL teams have help from local businesses to sell out games.

    Just cause Pack fans have nothing better to do than travel hours and hours just to cheer “go pack go” in the metrodome, doesn’t mean the vikes can’t sellout their game.

    PS, if the pack still had Favre, maybe they would have a chance this year. How is Rodgers’ consecutive games streak going….oh wait

    while i’m the first to flame idiots who run to the side of celebs purely because they ‘know’ them (hey kobe-tools, looking RIGHT at you), in this case, it’s not too hard to see how bitter packer fans really are. the fact is management wanted him gone, and the people didn’t. they went out of their way to NOT play against him by amending the trade contracts so the jets couldn’t trade him to an NFC north team for a length of time they thought would make him too old to get revenge.

    he finally got his revenge last year. good for him.

    by the way, i’ve HATED favre since year one because they packers beat us almost every year. now packer fans hate him for the same reasons as i did, as he cost them a championship last year. again, good for him.

    packer fans will continue to be vaginally challenged, as they pass the 15th, 25th, 35th anniversary of the last Super Bowl they won…WITH favre.

    nice of you to rag on the character of the guy, as you see from a comment he made. Who knows maybe he was wishing Peppers well because he knows beating the Pack is the #1 goal of our team.
    _________________________________

    What I meant was, the first stated goal of the season for the Bears is beat the Packers, then win the division, then advance in the playoffs, as they have said since Lovie showed up.

    But regardless, I’ll let da Bears worry about the Jets, or Pack, or whoever. I don’t have to worry about anything except dressing warm and smuggling whiskey into Soldier Field.

    Pervy – shutup already. We ALL know you are just upset that all the smack talking you’ve done over the past two years came back on your head this year. Face it: Your team is going to be terrible for years. You have no QB, an aging O line, an aging D line, no secondary, and (after Rice leaves this offseason) 1 WR of any ability whatsoever (and he’s out with some ailment or other rather frequently).

    You have no stadium to play in, and little local support. Oh, and did I mention YOUR TEAM HAS NEVER – I REPEAT – NEVER WON A TITLE.

    Mike and others want to say this reflects poorly on Brett. I don’t think Brett owes it to the Packers to be their cheerleaders. I also think that after just playing a game and having an elite player like Peppers come up and tell you it was a honor to play against you, it is natural that he would say something positive in return. Oh well.

    Since you wouldn’t post my comment last time, I’ll ask again. Does anyone ever remember a player sustaining a concussion in a game, and then attending the post-game press conference? I can’t. It just reiterates what we already know, Favre has to be in the spotlight. I don’t think for a second he had a concussion, I think he had the same facial expressions he had during the NFC Championship in Green Bay against the Giants…”It’s too cold for me to be out here”…Hedid a lot for the Packers and Wisconsin, but he doesn’t seem to understand that life goes on without him!

    I saw the quote on Monday and didn’t think much of it. I think had he played the Packers on Sunday, he would have said much the same to somebody else about them beating the Bears. It is common to wish luck to players after the game. The way some Packer fans have acted since Favre left the team, I really wouldn’t have blamed Favre if he was doing it out of bitterness, but I really don’t think that is the case.

He is the most overrated athlete I have seen in my 50 plus years – did I mention that he was also a team wrecking jerk, sort of white TO only with less natural talent.

    Brett Favre has the greatest respect from most of his NFL peers. Seems like only jealous has been players turned analysts and know nothing fans bash him. Favre in his prime at Lambeau was equal to Jordan in Chicago,Ali in the big fights, Ruth in Yankee Stadium. What a bunch of know nothings on PFT….keep bashing for your life sucks and no one will remember you…..

  113. gunner1970 says: Dec 22, 2010 9:40 PM

    You guys gather all that info from that one opinion from Favre! Nobody has any idea of what attitude he was in when he said that.

    Wow. And I was kinda rooting for the old man to pull off 1 more great game. With a comment like that he was probably planning to throw the game if he wasn’t hurt just to stick it to the Packers and kill any chance of winning the division. Favre just lost my last shred of respect with this. Loser. I don’t care if the Packers retire his number or decide to give it to a punter.

  117. tomlovestroy says: Dec 23, 2010 1:43 AM

    Farve was absolutely a QB for the decades. He was one of the few QBs that could single-handedly shred even the best Ravens defense at their best. Peyton Manning is the other. Based on that, I would say those two are the best I have ever seen. Nobody else is close.

    Obviously, the Packers were right about when Farve should have retired. Is it a big surprise that Farve is a little upset to find out that they Packers were right? No wonder he wants the Packers to lose.

  118. packfaninpackland says: Dec 23, 2010 2:05 AM

    As for the silly claim that the Queens have sellouts for 100 games or whatever the latest lie is, here’s the truth:

    The Queens perennially rely on corporatists to buy up the tickets their “fans” refuse to buy – even for playoff games – so these game can be televised.

    In every other football city in the world, sellouts mean the fan base buys the tickets.

    Not so in Violetville.

  121. stellarperformance says: Dec 23, 2010 9:04 AM

    If Favre did not continue to harbor a great deal of resentment against the Packers management (his wife supposedly more so,) then he would’ve said something like “go beat the Jets next week”…..another ex-team of his. But he didn’t.

    You are obviously not from here, and not a Packer fan. Your comment reflects the lack of familiarity most coast-to-coast fans have about Favre…not local opinion. He orchestrated his own way out of here because he thought another team (not his own teammates,) was his best chance for one last SuperBowl. You are reflecting upon whatever you have read about Favre in the USA Today over the years. A lot of blah blah blah about how great he is, etc., etc., etc. We’ve lived it with him. Go away.

    I have a feeling that comment is a reality for a lot of Packer fans.

    If you’re wondering why whenever Brett Favre farts it makes the news, it’s precisely because anything and everything written about ‘Him’ gets read……by lots and lots of people. The proof is the hundreds of comments posted about every story. You say you don’t want to hear about him, you say “who cares”, you say you’re tired of him, well I’ll believe that when I see a story about Favre that nobody bothers to comment on.

    Your friend used this analogy concerning YOUR feelings about Favre. Your name tells it all…you’re not a Packer fan….you’re a Favre fan. Don’t confuse the difference.

    stellar:
    I don’t think there is a bigger whinier bitch on this site. You are #1 with a bullet. It’s been three years since your “fallen hero” left. Get over it!!
    Just because he “didn’t do the right thing” and “tarnished” his image, doesn’t mean we should have to put up with all your Packer fans incessant whining about it.

    You, and others like you, claim that you don’t care anymore. Yet, here you are on a daily basis, spewing bile anytime there is a post on Favre.

    I’m not defending his hemming and hawing, that has gotten old. What I am defending is his right to want to play if he wants to.
    Only after he was told he’d be the back-up did he”orchestrate” his way out of town. You know, that little thing where he was sent to NY with the caveat that if the Jets traded him, it would cost them 3 1st rounders. he was told the ” the train had left the station” he changed his mind about playing, deal with it.
    The problem you and other turds like you have, is that you wanted him gone, but not to play anymore, so you could have Rodgers start. Had he retired a Packer, all would have been right with the world in your eyes, right?
    It didn’t go that way, so now you trash the guy? Big babies is all you are. You let this crap dictate your life. Before you go telling me I don’t know, I live in Wisconsin, I’ve seen you love and love this guy. He’s no longer any good to you, but still wants to play, he’s a “Judas” and ” we’ll never forget you Brent”. Pathetic!!
    It’s high time that you idiots figure out that these guys don’t care about the fans. It’s big business.
    It’s his legacy, he can do with it what he chooses, it’s his choice not yours. That you let your feelings get all tied up into a sports figure is not his problem, it’s yours. You really shouldn’t tie your self worth into a sports franchise. You need to get a life.

    awesome post stfudon. he merely wished an honorable foe good luck in his next endeavor. the packers look like a 3rd rate slaveship for the way they turned on favre without even admitting it. different story if the packers would have come out and said ” we are thru with favre, and will now start rogers. get out of town brett. now. and don’t play anywhere else either. get lost. you are thru. yes we know you can still perform, just not against or for us. thanks for the memories. come back when you can’t stay as long. now git goin.” but instead they spun the story out differently, and really really really looked like idiotic chumps when he hung 2 losses on them and knocked them out of the playoffs last year. loved it. the packers are cowards.

    Really? Last year? You’ve gone all the way back to last year to salvage any self-respect for yourself? Man, you take desperate to a whole new level. And the Packers made the playoffs last year by the way….maybe they didn’t in your fantasy world but they did in the real world. You should try hanging out in the real world once in a while.

  139. skurdzzz says: Dec 24, 2010 9:46 PM

    how long did they last in those playoffs? i think the vikes were about 1 play from the superbowl. not for myself at all. the packers remain cowards. and you are now my beeyatch.

    LOL, I didn’t know you had such an insightful look on my life stellarperformance, come on over for christmas and watch the game on sunday, I can assure you the only game this family will be watching will be in Green Bay this Sunday. Douche.

    What is this word “douche” that I see 100 times a day on PFT? Is it a football play?

    It’s funny how Viking ‘fans’ bitch at Packer fans for always bringing up the past but yet those same loser Viking ‘fans’ brag about being one game away from the Super Bowl LAST YEAR. If I recall that counts as the past.

    Wow, I can’t believe I missed your perfectly ridiculous post. Not since Gravy have I seen a more backwards, arrogant, pot calling the kettle black post. Congrats moron, you are the new king of the dumbasses.

    You’re not familiar because it has to do with women, which you know absolutely nothing about.

    Just as you don’t know if it’s a football play or not, because you also know nothing whatsoever about football.

    As a matter of fact, I have yet to see you share a shred of knowledge on ANY subject. You should really just make like every other Vikings “fan” and disappear. Haven’t you been ridiculed enough?

    Packers kicked favre to the curb then get their feelings hurt when he goes Purple I have to laugh. Don’t worry Cheeseheads when the time comes Favre and the Cheeseheads will be scratching each others testicles Farve for the cash you’ll caugh up for his autograph you to kiss up to him and have him retire 4 the HOF as a Packer. He’ll laugh all the way to the bank.

    Fav-Ruh told GB & their fans to move on…they did. But somebody surely didn’t.

    With Rodgers & the talents that TT/MM brought in and will continue to bring in…they’re set for years to come.

    Haters with crap teams are gonna hate…pissed that they can’t say the same about their team.

    Surely you must know that players do not retire into the HOF. Players retire and then, possibly, get elected to the HOF. In addition they do not go into the HOF as a player of any team–they go in as an individual and each team they played for during their career now has an additional HOF player.

    I get so tired of explaining this.

    So what – he tells a friend to go out and beat the Packers… The Bears really should have won-they are the better team right now.
    The Packers will never be worth watching again as long as Ted Thompson and Mike McCarthy are with the organization. That is too bad they shed such a crappy light over Green Bay….I live in Green Bay and many many feel the same way.
    Very Sad. :-(

  151. SpartaChris says: Jan 3, 2011 7:50 PM

    @lorvita-

    You’re an idiot. Only Favre ball washers and knob bobbers feel that way. Realistic Packers fans who don’t have their heads up Favre’s rectum feel otherwise and are thankful Ted was/is able to make the hard choices.
