does anyone love the drama surrounding the future hall of famer these last couple weeks. I surely do.

My question is why everyone is criticizing him for wanting to play? Not sure, farve is continuously making premature decisions of retirement, that does get old. But what isnt, is the fact that he still can play. The packers would be foolish to let him go anywhere but green bay. having this guy to continue to play will feel like a bonus to the die hard football fans out there. Die hard fans would of loved to see barry sanders continue his journey for perfection. Oh what would of we gave to see him play another season or two. Farve at his age continues to perform at a reletively high level. people calling for him to retire clearly do not appreciate the greatness or quality of football (aka 63% sportsnation).

thoughts anyone?

p.s. farve, wanna come to oakland?

I agree to a large degree aj. If he wants to play and can play at a high level, then why not. Last year he obviously proved he has something in the tank.

I would be much more critical if he was just trying to hang on and was a complete shell of himself. That would be said. But that is not the case here.

The only part that is tough is that he DID say he was going to retire and the team moved on. The used the cap space and drafted 2 qb's in the draft. This puts them in a very bad position.

The last thing they want it to see him play for a divsion rival like Chicago or Minnesota but it would be hard for them to keep him on the roster with his salary and roster spots. Cant really carry 4 QB's and they would risk losing one of their drafted QB's if they try and send them to the practice squad.

So I am not critizizing him for wanting to play, but rather the way it is going down.

Wow being in Wisconsin during the last 9 days.. would have been like being in Washington when the Monica Lewinsky affair broke across the 6pm news and newspapers...

I don't know if id wanna be in either of those 2 places at that time purely for the propaganda local news agencies try and feed you.

the only negetive thing i can truely think of, but its no big deal cuz i want him to come back, is that he wont be a part of the pontentially best hall of fame class. 2013 was set up to be legandary. Strahan, Ogden, Farve, Sapp, L. Allen... Even without farve, that class is brilliant... oh well, 2014 will be just as good!

Farve is really hurting this franchise's youth movement at QB. And if he keeps this up, he may cause a distraction that causes this team to drop a couple important games.

I don't think the Niners would want a 3yr/39 million backup. I sure don't. I like Farve, and I hate our QB situation, but still.

The thing I don't like about what Farve is doing is that it put the organization in a hole and Aaron Rodgers the chance to think about walking after this season if he doesn't play. I think Rodgers has the chance to do well, it's just a shame Farve has to always come back once the Packers seem they're ready to move on.

I dont understand this why wont the packers let me go? Talk about the ultimate backstabbing organization. After all the favre did for the packers there should not even be a milisecond the packers wont let him go if they have decided to go in another direction qb wise. Why are the Packers organization being such hard asses for?

because the LAST thing they want to see if Favre going to either of their two division rivals (Bears and Vikes) who could use a QB like Favre desperately! It would be idiotic to allow that to happen.

The Packs are accusing the Vikings for collusion. Man, this plot just continues to thicken in this story huh.

Also, Farve on the St. Peterson times (Tampa Bay Area Paper) said he wanted to play for a cold city team, and that the Bucs would be propbably too warm. Im paraphrasing it so dont quote me, but i just think he does have his mind set for the Vikings or Bears.
