After Ted Thompson, the General Manager of the Green Bay Packers, traded Brett Favre to the New York Jets, most people wanted his head, but now only a little over 2 years later, I think most people would rather have Aaron Rodgers make a crucial start at QB for their team in 2010 over Brett Favre.
Whether you would want Favre or Tavaris Jackson is a more relevant question at this point.
Well Favre really does need to retire. All he brings to the table is drama along with plenty of experience. I am not sure how Minnesota did so well last year with the same core players but this year they completely flopped on their faces. I don't think Childress was completely to blame, instead I think Favre has plenty of blame to take as well. The team is a complete mess. It was a good move on Packers behalf to let him go when they did.
I would take any QB over Brett Favre. Favre just needs to hang it up for good.
I agree- and after MNF i think the decision was made for him- a few years to late. Had he retired a Packer all would be good in the world of Favre
Rodgers is a top five qb in the NFL right now. No brainer.
Does Brett Favre even know where he is right now? He's got broken bones and torn tendons throughout his body, and a concussion on top of that. He shouldn't have played this past week, and it would be reckless for anyone to clear him to play in the remaining two games this season.
He was not put in the injured reserved list, who knows he might still play the week after this.
And Rogers is unsure to play this Sunday because of his concussion.
I love to watch football this weekend, many exciting games, I hope my cable is working by then, wasn't able to watch last Sunday and it was bad bad day...
The Packers/Giants game is probably going to be the biggest game of this regular season. It's basically a playoff game for both teams. If the Giants win they clinch the wild card, while if the Packers win they'll just need a win in the final week or a Giants loss and they'll get the wild card.
The Packers offense kept it close without Rogers this past week, but that was also against a Patriots team that doesn't have much left to play for.
Rodgers is back to play on Sunday. Packers and NYG -- yes that will be a game to watch plus Jets vs Bears and NO vs Atl. On Monday, Eagles and Vikes,
Geez, busy Sunday for me LOL after the Christmas....
While me watch at the internet tonite for me Steelers...
I would take Favre, and I'm not a fan of his. Rodgers has not proven a thing yet, except that he gets injured every four games. It's funny that Green Bay losing is never his fault. He will never be nearly as great as Favre. I would still take the gunslinger to win a big game, he has done it a lot. What has Rodgers won?

Next week's divisional game between the Giants and Packers should be a good one. Last time they met in Week 13, the Packers won 38-35 in MetLife Stadium. Rodgers engineered a last-minute drive to set up a 31-yard field...

As a Green Bay Packers fan, I have seen Brett Favre play for many years and this Sunday he looked terrible. His throws were almost all off target, he is incredibly immobile and he looks genuinely tired on the sidelines....
