Murphy: Packers Will Reach Out To Favre

Packers president Mark Murphy opened the door to a reconciliation between the organization and the iconic quarterback when asked about the relationship at Media Day today.


Green Bay Packers CEO Mark Murphy was asked about the organization's relationship with Brett Favre going forward today at Media Day. Murphy indicated that the team planned to reach out to Favre "at the appropriate time".

Yeah, at the appropriate time, we'll reach out to him. And I envision he'll come back into the fold.

It was very interesting seeing the reaction to this on my Twitter feed. The majority of fans were strongly against this idea while a small group thought it was the right thing to do.

Interested to see how our readers here at Cheesehead TV feel about it. The Comments section is open for business.

This is something that I simply don't relate to. I am fully for letting #4 back in the fold immediately.

The guy didn't "screw" the Packers any more than the Packers screwed Al Harris, or I screwed one grocery store because I chose to shop at another.

The guy was a fantastic Packer for 16 years then left. Then eventually became a Viking. I bear him, nor Sharper, nor Longwell any ill will. They did what they thought was in their best interest.

If Favre now wants to let his legacy rest w/the Packers, that is fine with me.

I just don't understand the "he was a traiter" mentality. He owed the Packers and the Packer fans nothing. So I don't feel betrayed.

Please don't misunderstand me. If you do feel betrayed, I'm not saying you're wrong. I'm just saying I don't understand that feeling because I don't feel it myself.

He didn't owe the team any semblance of commitment, at the very least, letting them know they could rely on him to give a reliable "yes or no" on his return, to be "all in" in terms of off-season development and training camp, to take a leadership role in relating to his younger teammates (something that was utterly beyond his grasp in Green Bay, but then suddenly a pleasurable task to take on in Minny - where he chummed around with the youngsters, no problem)?

None of this is emotional. This is pure objective observation of the way he quit on the Packers. And why? Because they dared to think about the Post-Brett era and draft another QB. He couldn't handle that, and from that point forward, he was a big, fat dickwad.

Longwell, Sharper, Harris - totally different situations. Wanting more money is looking out for yourself. Not wanting to have a QB replacement in the hopper because that might dim the spotlight on the diva ever so slightly - that's being an ass.

I don't know who quit on who. One could make the argument that TT & MM quit on Favre by pushing him to retire before he was ready. That said, even if they didn't do this, and he decides that he's not ready to quit, what was he supposed to do?

I think TT & MM were right to move on. I think BF was fine to change his mind. 2009 demonstrated that he still had some tread left.

I just don't see what BF did to the Packers and Packer fans that was wrong. Hence I see no reason why not to welcome him back... whatever the heck that means.

Let's wait a year after we know he's finally retired and bring him back into the fold as other generations of fans welcomed back the two men whose statues stand outside Lambeau Field, Vince Lombardi and Curly himself.

So many of us forget how each of them moved on to irresistible other post-Packer opportunities. If they can can be part of the Packer heritage, Brett Favre can too.

This is like a divorce. The bad memories are too fresh, but once we all focus on the beautiful child we had together on January 26, 1997 there will be enough love to go around and let us be a family again.

Super Bowl or die. GO PACK GO!

Help me understand: what did he do that was so bad? Change his mind? Have difficulty making a decision? That sort of thing seems like something that every human being goes through from time to time, and that the rest of us should just be understanding of it.

I'm not trying to be an apologist for Favre. But good grief, he still had something to offer. If I were to go "unretire" from the Packers, they'd laugh in my face. It wouldn't be any kind of distraction to the team because I have absolutely zero to offer them. The only reason that BF was a distraction was because he did have something to offer, and that forced the Packers to have to decide.

I don't think it was "wrong" for BF to make that offer. Neither do I think it was wrong for TT&MM to decline it. Being put to a decision when someone with something to offer comes along is just part of life. And being an NFL team provides no immunity from those sorts of situations.

But perhaps you think that BF did something wrong. If so, please help me understand what it is. Because this is a mystery to me.

dullgeek:

Brett Favre held a personal press conference- a two parter, at that- with Gretta Van S., attempting to air dirty laundry and misconstrue certain details in an apparent attempt to smear TT and the Packers organization. He managed to get caught lying about a number of those details, in one instance as confirmed by his agent later. He then went out of his way to contact Packers opponents to talk about gameplanning against the Packers. Saying he wanted to "Stick it" to the Packers.

Let's not forget the general strong-arming of the team he did the last few years.

Let's also not forget he had just told Julius Peppers in week 15 to "Beat the Packers".

So, yeah, he did some shitty stuff. Some shitty stuff that goes beyond just making a personal business decision in his best interests. Some shitty stuff that smacks of having a personal beef with the Packers.

The reason Favre is different from these other players is that he tried to hold the team hostage.
No other player thought it was his place to dictate to TT what head coach should be hired, much less what personnel moves should be made. No other player felt free to freelance or deviate from the game plan whenever it suited his need. No other player went on a psychotic vendetta against management, as a result of not being allowed to dictate to the GM or coach.
No other player tried to split the fan base or turn the team or public against the management of the team.

I think that this is correct. I also would like to see the Packers slow down the process of retiring #4. It's just way too soon for that. I'm not sold on the fact that he is worthy of having his number retired. The Packers have many NFL HOFers that don't warrant number retirement.

There should be a ten year wait period at a minimum before the Packers consider retiring any player's number.

I agree about waiting to retire #4. Having a number retired means going above and beyond being a great player. Favre had that when he retired (the first time). He'd played almost his entire career for the Packers and become an icon for the organization. Now? Not so much. His on-field accomplishments still stand but his off the field behavior has lessened (in my eyes at least) his stature as a representative of the organization.

Probably in time, they will retire the number since it was already intended.
However, I am now of the opinion that they should not retire any more numbers. It is unfair to those who wore them before and it cuts into the historical lineage. Some future player might relish having a famous player's number for inspiration. And it helps current players connect to the past in a positive and relevent way.

Got no problem with it, got no problem with President Murphy's remark. We can all be adults. I'm a Packer fan first & foremost, was a Fauvre fan, and remained a Fauvre fan throughout his time in MN for the way he plays the game. Hated getting beat by him, but otherwise felt little disparity over the situation. If you think this means Im not truly a Packer fan, just ask my Packer friend's 3 dogs whom I scare the shit out of every Sunday screaming & throwing my jacket & cheeshead around, especially during the last 2 Bears games and the game against Detroit. Fandom does not imply or illicit disgust & hatred for me with regard to Brett's career decisions. I think of him more like a little stinker "turnin the tables" on things. Nothing else should happen or be said with regard to reaching out to him til AT LEAST midway through next season though. Not appropriate right now.

I’m honestly indifferent to his prior allegiances with either the Jets or the Vikings. He had every right to pursue either opportunity. I was indifferent to Favre wearing green or purple.

When I reflect on his career accomplishments all three uniforms will inevitably be part of my memory, can’t take that back now or in the future.
It’s not the accomplishments I find myself dwelling on. It’s his lack of character and integrity (no, not a reference to his infidelity) and the way he waged a PR campaign to preserve his own ego. His historic revisionism when it came to recounting both the good and bad with any of his franchises.

His lack of preparation for his last decade as a Packer where he folded like a chair from November onward while watching him prepare like an actual professional while in Minnesota (wasted at least 1/3rd of his career). The contrast between he and Rodgers in this respect pains me.

I resent everything about him as a person; his accomplishments have no emotional attachment for me, they’re nothing but statistics.

Look, contrary to what you stated, there is some emotional attachment to Favre with me. Though now it is more negative than positive. But Favre did not prepare like a professional in Minnesota. Plain and simple, "professionals" are around for OTA's at the most and ALL of training camp at the least.

He was consistantly in the film room and preparing outside the confines of their training center. He never did that in Green Bay, nothing near what Rodgers did.

He wasn't at camp, no. But his prep in season was unlike anything he did while in Green Bay or New York with his personal locker room. Wrong...

If Brett would have just gone to the Jets one year and be done with it, I would say: Bring him home right away. But after that purple fiasco I say keep him hanging there for a while.
But right now I am just anxious for the big game on Sunday. I am literally sitting on the edge of my seat waiting for that game to happen. And I know I can only be disappointed except when we see a tight win by the Packers, led by ARod and this great D, winning it just before time epires. But I take the disappointment of a blowout win too ;-)

I view Hornung's gambling more objectionable than how Favre and the Packers parted ways; however Favre's conduct as a Jet was as bad as Hornung's conduct.

Any delay in reaching out to Favre should be solely attributable to the NFL's investigation of his conduct as a NY Jet. That day after that is resolved, we should reach out to him and welcome him as an esteemed Packer alum.

A. Rodge leads Packers to Super Bowl victory and has as many Super Bowl wins as Favre and half as many as Starr. Not sure why I felt the need to point that out.

Aaron Kampman left with a nice note from himself to Packer Nation. Al Harris did the same thing. Favre left with his middle finger in the air whining like a 8 year old girl whose mom wouldn't buy her an i-Phone.

The Packers will retire Favre's number. I hope that I'm at the game so that i can "boo" louder than I've ever "boo-ed" before.

Who knows what Murphy meant by, "the appropriate time." My guess is that it will happen about two years before Farve is eligible for the Hall of Fame. I agree with a lot of what was said above. As usual, I think Oppy's post pretty well sums up what I would say. But we all know this guy is going in as a 1st ballot Hall of Famer, and since he couldn't pull off a couple of Super Bowls as a Viking, he will go in as a Packer. But that $20 million dollar ambassador deal they tried to hand him? Forget about it. Especially if Rodgers wins on Sunday.

Mark,
it's a common misconception that a player declares the team he'd like to be associated with when he enters the halls at Canton. There is no declaration; every player enshrined at Canton has all teams to which they made a "Significant contribution" to during their career listed- I believe with Dates as well. For instance, I don't believe ATL or NY would be listed, but MIN could be (due to a NFC Championship appearance).

As far as the marketing deal offered to brINT, or enshrinement in the Packers HOF, etc and so forth, I just can't imagine the Packers organization would ever even think of doing so while Aaron Rodgers is at the helm. The level of badgering Rodgers would have to yet endure again would be colossal. Simply put, it would not be fair to a kid who has already been tasked with dealing with an uncomfortable (and career-long) connecting to the ugliness between brINT and the Packers Organization that had nothing to do with him. The distraction would be enormous and Rodgers would be badgered like it was the 2008 pre season all over again. Perhaps if Aaron clearly carves out a niche for himself as a HOF'er while still an active player, they could do it at that time.. Otherwise, I think the Packers have to wait until Rodgers career with the Packers is over.

Too bad he hasn't respect us, the fans, the ones who made him the face of the franchise for 16 seasons. The ones who never wavered when he was a drunk with a healthy vicatin addiction on the side or when he struggled through one of his multiple interception plagued seasons.

I'm not defending TT or MM for the way it all went down, but it was the right move that could have been potentially done more tactfully. That being said, I still haven't heard an utterance of praise or thanks to the fans from Favre for all the support he recieved during his 16 years in Green Bay.

Point Packer,
I think brINT Farkle is a complete knob, but to be fair, on numerous occasions since his departure from GB he has spoken glowingly of the fan base in GB, saying they are second to none and he knows he'll never "have what (he) has (with the fans) in GB" anywhere else.

That said, I'm very disappointed that he could not maintain the illusion of the humble, average joe on the street who just happens to be one the of all time great GB Packers. His 16 years in GB, especially the glory years, can not be forgotten. He is inextricably a part of the Packers illustrious history. It's a shame that his chapter in the annals of Packer lore could not have a ended with a story book ending.

Instead, it will be another story akin to a disgruntled Curly Lambeau flying the coop. While not pretty, it's still a great part of the colorful history of the PAckers, and heck, they named the stadium after him. At least Brett Favre hasn't attempted to buy the team in hopes of moving it to the west coast and divvying it up amongst a group of California businessmen. ;)

Curly Lambeau was on bitter terms with the Packers till the day he died by most accounts.

Favre will be remembered as the greatest Packer of them all. He should be welcomed back with open arms. His number needs to be retired, his name needs to go on the ring of honor and his statue should be built outside of Lambeau as soon as the team wraps up this game. The Packers owe all of their current success to the groundwork that he laid for this team.

And if you believe that, I've got a great dick photo for you.....

I guess I'm too old to remember the Dan Devine day's or the Starr years (HC) oh lets not forget Forrest Gregg (HC), or how about Lindy Infante???
We were the Detroit Lions for a long time.
Favre will always be the remembered by myself as a winner and an integral part of bringing back this franchise to it's winning way's.
I don't care if he pissed off a fanbase with the way he left, for what he did here we should have risen above being that petty.

Put him in the Packers Hall Of Fame - one year after Rodgers goes into it.

Yes, that would be a ways off, what, 20 years or so? Fine with me.

Brett Favre,...the greatest Packer of all time who was medicore in the playoffs...12-10 career playoff record. Bart Starr, 9-1.

Favre has burned this bridge, and that has nothing to do with his 3-6 playoff record after the 97 season, always enjoyed watching him play for the Green and Gold. Retire his number after winning Super Bowls with Arod, Clay, Tramon, and the rest of gang becomes the norm...and the first SB win comes this Sunday!

Ok, so I think we should let him back...No, I think we shouldn't! Ok, I think we should...No, let's not!
Why in the world can't we all just move on? He did, didn't he? Or maybe he didn't!
