A slice:

Arriving in New York last Friday, Brett Favre sounded as if he had taken a page from Bull Durham's Nuke LaLoosh. "I'm here for one reason," he told reporters. "I'm here to help the Jets win."

It would have been refreshing if at least one of the worshipful media folk at the press conference had replied, "Well, actually, Brett, you're here because after months of vacillating on your retirement and putting the Packers through [censored] -- and forcing them into using a valuable draft pick on an extra quarterback because they didn't know whether you'd be playing for them this season -- you tried to bully them into either making you the starter or trading you to a team of your choice. Like a prima donna, you put your own desires ahead of the welfare of the organization to which you professed loyalty. Now you've been dumped on one of the NFL's most desperate franchises because no one else wanted you."


I think New York is gonna be rough on our boy from Missip.

On another note, Aaron didn't do to bad last night for the quarter he played.

Didn't the Bengals have the 27th rated defense last season?

It's true that Mr. Favre holds the all-time record for TD passes (442), but what isn't as well known is that he also holds the record for most interceptions (288).
I didn't know the stats but you saw it on the field. That's why watching the Packers lost it's luster for me the last couple of years. I wish Rogers all the luck in the world and look forward to the new Pack's fledgling season. Coach was right. It's time to move on.

yeah, they kept talking about how he was injury-prone last night. he took some hits and bounced up last night. i think his injury history is flukey.

Does the Pack not have two new drafted backup QBs now too, including Brian Brohm? If so, they have rookies that can step in and learn the system if Rodgers gets a boo boo.

Maybe o paper, but Brohm could be a pleasant surprise. Remember Tom Brady's first season after Beldsoe got injured?

Brohm looked good last night after throwing an interception with his first pass.
