A Football Decision

That's what the ushering out of Favre was, according to Bob McGinn. (sub required)

From a purely football perspective, the organizational shift against Favre began that November night in Dallas, gained steam in the arctic cold of Soldier Field and became a blaze during Favre's pathetic second-half showing against the New York Giants with a Super Bowl there for the taking.

Just about everyone who counted in the football department reached the conclusion that Favre could never win another championship. His dismal playoff record in the past decade couldn't be overlooked. And the Packers concluded that it would be the mother of all mistakes if Aaron Rodgers got away without being properly evaluated as a starter.

This is as I suspected. It's hard as fans to divorce emotion from the equation. But as I've stated time and time again, it's better for the Packers to get out of their relationship with Favre one year early rather than one year too late. It would seem the men charged with making football related decisons for the Green Bay Packers agree.

I don't know if I like my team's braintrust coming to the conclusion that Favre will "never win another Super Bowl" because of three bad games, two of which occurred in brutal weather. Seriously, I don't think Mr. Met, armed with his t-shirt cannon, could have hit an open receiver in Chicago on that November day.

However, one thing I am looking forward to: POWER FOOTBALL!!! As much as I love Brett, as a guy who played o-line in HS, there is nothing I love to watch more than a power running game when it is clicking on all cylinders. Hopefully Rodgers can blossom into a modern version of Starr with Grant and Jackson filling the Taylor/Hornung roles. ;)

Well, I'd settle for Green/Davenport/Fisher with a defense that can stop someone on 4th and 26. ;)

Come on Aaron, you have to think big!

Well, then, they did push him out. No wonder he's bitter.

Possibly they did lostinutah but I believe it was time. We all new it was going to happen and we would end up Brettless eventually. Packers have a young very talented team and I think this time was as good(possibly better) than any. Right now we have the best chance of being successful without Brett than any other time in the last 5 years. Seize the moment.
