Favre joins al Qaeda

The bastard.

I compare what Favre did to Churchill switching sides to the Nazis and the asshole has to one up me by joining fucking al Qaeda.
It seems that the Brett Favre-Green Bay Packers saga is such a worldwide phenomenon that it's being used by detainees in American military camps.

According to a military official, detainees at a Wisconsin National Guard camp in Iraq are using Brett Favre as a manner of getting at the guard troops there.

"They know Favre by name," said First Lieutenant Tim Boehnen, who is from New Richmond, Wis.

"One of the big words they know now is shenanigan. They'll constantly talk about 'Favre shenanigans,' 'He's so good for the Vikings,' and 'The Packers have got to really feel bad about that one.' "

Giving aid and comfort to the enemy. Brett Favre is a mother fucking terrorist.

Wow. Favre blew that worse than any of Aaron Rodgers' 4th quarter failures last year.

A tap on the shoulder from Vince and Curly before Brett returns to the Hallowed Turf of Lambeau Field next week.

Has the curse been broken?

Bears at Lambeau

Last year: Bears 20, Packers 17 in OT

This Year: Packers 21, Bears 15

Just the opposite of last year, this time it's the Packers who are outplayed but find a way to come back late in the game to win.

Maybe Brett shouldn't have pissed on Vince's grave.

Different season, different curse

One doesn't spit on the legacy of Lambeau and Lombardi like this. Watch out Brent Farve. You went too far by joining the Vikings. The bad mojo is back on you.

The End? Nope!

JSOnline reports that The Curse will be up close and personal for the Packers this year.

Green Bay - Retired quarterback Brett Favre and Minnesota Vikings coach Brad Childress will meet later this week to discuss Favre's possible return to the game with the Minnesota Vikings, according to an ESPN report.

The meeting will happen at a "undisclosed" location. Werder said the information came from "a source with direct knowledge of discussions between the two parties."

Both Favre and agent Bus Cook have said Favre is retired and will remain that way. On Monday, Favre was asked via text message whether he was going to play again by ESPN analyst Trent Dilfer. Favre replied: "NO."

The report also says Favre has not been working out and did not have surgery on his torn biceps tendon. "Favre may believe the injury can heal on its own as did a similar problem with his left shoulder while he played in Green Bay," the report said.

One year down, 49 to go.

The end?

For the second time in less than a year, quarterback Brett Favre has announced his retirement.

There was not much fanfare involved this time.

Favre simply sent an e-mail to his preferred media outlet,, that he had instructed his agent to inform the New York Jets that he was retiring. The Jets later confirmed that they had been apprised of his decision and released statements from owner Woody Johnson and general manager Mike Tannenbaum.

According to, Favre said he would not conduct a farewell news conference similar to the one he had March 6 of last year.

"I'm an emotional guy, and I'm sure people are tired of seeing me get emotional," Favre said. "People would probably say, 'Oh, here he goes again.' I think it would just be better for me to just thank the Jets, and I sincerely mean that. It was well worth what I invested. But I'm going to just quietly step away. . . "

Favre made those comments a week after the season ended. In retrospect, it was apparent then that he planned to retire, although the Jets asked him to take his time.

With his football retirement will the Favre Curse retire too?

This is not good news ...

Shut up Rodgers, don't piss off Brett any worse. From JSOnline:
In the chat, Rodgers said that, after the Packers lost to the New York Giants in the NFC Championship in January 2008, he and Favre left as friends. But there's been no communications since.

Here's the transcript:

Kiley: "You must say to yourself, why doesn’t Brett speak to me. What could it possibly be? …"

Rodgers: "I don’t know. That’s a question for him. I’m not going to put words in his mouth…. When we lost to the Giants [in the 2007 NFC Championship], we left as friends, and I haven’t talked to him in a year…."

Irvin: "Why will you not reach out to him?"

Rodgers: "I did."

Irvin: "So you called him and he did not call you back."

Rodgers: "Yeah."

If this keeps up, the Curse will last centuries.

The Curse gains another believer

From Motown, a letter to the Sports Editor of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel (this was copied from the dead tree version, no online link is available), postulating a "curse" on the Packers.
Cursed decision ruined Packers' season

Let's assume beyond reasonable doubt that Brett Favre did want to lead the Packers again in 2008. Rather than being welcomed home with open arms, he was cast aside by the general manager, coach and president of the team like garbage.

The team subsequently failed miserably while being led by a new quarterback who had a relatively decent individual record but was unable to provide the winning direction that Favre had done for so many years before.

Now the same GM is given another year to blindly go where he has gone before. I remind you of history concerning the Detroit Lions.

After winning three NFL championships, they traded Bobby Lane away. Supposedly he said they would not win another title for 50 years. Even though Favre said no such thing, in fact just the opposite by saying he would always be a Packer, is it possible that the same "curse" might follow to Green Bay as well?

Baker Urdan, Southfield, MI
I have couple quibbles with Mr. Urdan's letter. First, it is pretty clear that Mr. Urdan did not watch the Packers play football this season. It was not a matter of A-Rod being unable to provide winning direction to the team. The Packers lost because they could not field a defensive unit that could prevent opponents from scoring at will in the 4th quarter.

Second, as great as Brett Favre played as a Packer, he was no Bobby Lane. Lane was a winner, 3 NFL Championships in his 9 years with the Lions. Favre won only one Super Bowl in his 16 years as a Packer, a good player, but not in Bobby Lane's class.

Brett was "a one-year wonder, just a fart in the wind," as Mr. Wolf succinctly put it.

The Favre Pick

The ACME Packing Company provides this summary of the Packers picks in the 2009 NFL draft.

The Packers currently have nine draft choices: seven of their own, one from the Saints, and one from the Jets. Compensatory picks have not yet been determined. Here's how the draft order shakes out:

Round Pick Overall Notes Pick Value
1 9 9
2 9 41
3 9 73
3 17 81 from NYJ (Favre trade) 185
4 9 105
5 9 137
6 9 169
6 16 176 from NO (2008 Draft) 22
7 9 201
TOTAL --- 9 --- 2430.3

Keep an eye on that 81st pick. That is what the Packers received for trading away this.
