    Default Favre Watch 2008. Post Brett Favre Updates Here

    Well, the Packers and Favre are again at a stalemate despite meeting for hours this morning and last night.

    Let's have a Favre watch full of minute to minute updates and even predictions as to what happens next.

    I hope he ends up in Minnesota although it's a long shot.

    ESPN - Favre says of situation: 'This probably isn't going to work' - NFL

    Green Bay Packers quarterback Brett Favre went into a meeting Tuesday morning acknowledging that he was at a "stalemate" with the team and believed the "best thing for this team is for us to part ways."

    Consequently, Favre is unlikely to take the field for practice Tuesday afternoon, pending his second meeting with coach Mike McCarthy -- though sources told ESPN's Wendi Nix that Favre's wife, Deanna, and his agent, James "Bus" Cook, are encouraging him to practice.

    "We're at a stalemate," Favre said. "Mike and I both agreed last night that me being out there is a distraction and will continue to be a distraction. We all know the reason I'm here is because the commissioner [Roger Goodell] reinstated me so we have a lot of things to figure out. It's simple and complicated, both at the same time."

    Favre said the team once again rejected his request to talk to teams about a trade within the NFC North, preferably to the Minnesota Vikings or possibly the Chicago Bears.

    Favre clarified reports that he and the Packers have backpedaled on the premise that there would be an open competition with Aaron Rodgers for the starting job.

    "Mike told me, hey, we're a better team with you on it but wanted to know if I have a problem with an open competition," Favre said. "I don't have a problem with competing -- you know that, but Aaron should be the starter right now because he's been out here all this time. This is more than about an open competition and I can do that, absolutely, but this is going to be mass confusion and that's not good for this team.


    "I'll practice my butt off, if it comes to that, and I think we all know what the end result will be, but this probably isn't going to work. And I truly understand that if I was in Mike's shoes, I'd see it basically the same way he sees it, I'm sure. And I think if he was in my shoes, he'd see it my way. I think we both agree on that.

    "They want to know if I'm committed but I want to know if they're 100 percent committed. The problem is that there's been a lot of damage done and I can't forget it. Stuff has been said, stories planted, that just aren't true. Can I get over all that? I doubt it."

    Favre, who officially returned from retirement Sunday, met with McCarthy for 5½ hours on Monday night without reaching a resolution. The meeting went long enough that McCarthy had to postpone a planned briefing with the media.



    Favre announced his retirement on March 6, and the Packers moved ahead with Rodgers, Favre's former understudy, as the team's new starting quarterback. But Favre, still under contract with the Packers, then followed through on hints that he was interested in a return to the NFL.



    The Packers have attempted to work out a trade outside the NFC North, with the New York Jets and Tampa Bay Buccaneers reported as likely suitors, but to no avail. And last week, team president Mark Murphy flew to Mississippi to discuss a marketing deal for Favre worth a reported $25 million. Favre has not accepted that deal, either.

    Asked what stories have been "planted," Favre alluded to the reports that said he waffled on un-retiring in late March or early April. He said that's "just not the way it went down, at all."

    He also expressed anger with the stories that alleged he had a team-issued cell phone that showed the Vikings were tampering with him.

    "Again, that was bull on both parts," he said.

    "Then," Favre said, "they tried to buy me off to stay retired."

    He added, "So they can say they welcome me back but, come on, the way they've treated me tells you the truth. They don't want me back, so let's move on. I don't know where it's headed. We'll see."

    ESPN's Chris Mortensen covers the NFL. ESPN reporter Wendi Nix contributed to this report.
    I read on NFL.com that Favre has left Lambeau field shortly before 3 pm which was the start time for the Packers practice today.

    Coach McCarthy of the Pack said that Favre is not in a mindset to play for his Green Bay Packers. Favre is done in Green Bay. My guess would be if Minnesota offered Favre a 2nd round pick, they'd get him. Minnesota is the only team that makes sense.

    Not to mention, a pretty solid o-line. But screw the Vikings, and Peterson.


    But on topic, this whole Favre story just keeps bringing us twist after twist. First he's going back to the Packers, then he's being traded, then he's being offered to compete for the starting QB job in packerland, now he's not even in their plans again....

    I just don't get it.

    Right... and how many years have you missed the play-offs? Unless Peterson runs all over everyone, everygame, it'll be another missed year.

    Even when the Broncos have a bad season, we do something about it. You guys got lucky getting Peterson 7th that draft year, and he's what your whole team is.

    Haha, it's gonna be a looooong season.

    The SI.com Truth and Rumors section, which is usually reliable is reporting the Packers are negotiating with the Bucs and Jets with the Bucs being the most likely.

    You're kidding right? You've gone 6-10 or worse 3 times in the since 2000.

    And if you consider going 8-8 a winning season, then no wonder you're looking forward towards another one.
