Everyone, especially those in the national media, want to pitch the Favre situation as Thompson vs. Favre. This couldn't be more wrong, as Thompson alluded to in his press conference yesterday:
We don't just make arbitrary decisions. We talk it over with all of our staff. We go through this over and over again, and yeah, we've talked through the different scenarios. And I understand why there are people out there that think, 'Holy smokes, you're crazy.' I just think it's important for people to know we believe this is the right direction for the Packers to go both now and in the future.
For the record, it is Favre vs. Thompson, McCarthy, Moss, Philbin, McKenzie, Clements and Schneider. Combined, they have spent over 100 years in NFL front offices and/or as coaches in the league. Each one of these men has staked their professional careers on the decision to choose Rodgers over Favre.
