Jsonline also reporting Favre to camp


Jsonline is also reporting that a source indicates Favre is planning to come to camp for the Packers and that he will be signing his reinstatement papers. The thought by Tom Silverstein apparently is that Favre either is pushing this whole thing further so he can be traded or that Favre may just want to return to the Packers and be accepting of the stated order of QBs (Rodgers #1). I continue to be surprised by how this is all playing out, but maybe I shouldn’t be surprised by anything anymore.

I have a hard time picturing Favre on the sidelines for the Packers. It would be very awkward to have Rodgers running around out there starting when Favre’s healthy – especially in light of the year Favre had last year. What if Favre outperforms Rodgers in camp? What if he works harder than in the past and demonstrates a commitment to the team? What if Rodgers tweaks a hammy? What if McCarthy eventually believes Favre should be the starter but TT won’t allow it? Too many questions. Too ugly.

As much as it seemed impossible to me a few months ago, it almost seems more likely at this point that Favre will be playing in another uniform come September. And it wouldn’t surprise me if he plays really well considering his tendency to thrive in adverse situations.

Stay tuned…

    Let the circus begin. Favre wants no trade period. He wants to play for Minnesota, thinking he can embarrass Thompson. This is his real goal and always has been. Thompson didn’t bend to Favre’s wishes and that ran counter to the treatment given him by Sherman Hence, the 12 year old Bret surfaced and here we are.

    And I was so looking forward to this season. Now it’ll be a miracle if they can keep the team focused. I know Murphy can’t help. At this point he’s pretty much a figurehead. Mike Mc Carthy will be totally occupied in trying to keep the high degree of discipline his offensive and defensive schemes require and can’t be a babysitter.

    Could it be we will see Bret in purple (starting in game two) ? They will never let it happen in game one for obvious reasons. Then, we’re in the hands of Goodell for whatever crumbs he decides to hand out to the Packers as compensation.
