Favre\'s typical summons to the backups is, \"come get you some scraps.\"

Referring to the snaps the backups actually take. He isn\'t a mentor, he isn\'t a teacher. He is a great player, one of the best ever, but he plays, he doesn\'t coach, help or teach.

Have you ever been to a Packer\'s practice? NO? PLEASE EXPLAIN TO US HOW YOU KNOW THIS?? If you can\'t do it, are we suppose to take your word for it?

You guys ever do any reading about Brett Favre, geez, it ain\'t rocket science.
Last season there were about a thousand articles done on Brett Favre, kind of evaluating his career, trying to get a response from him on retirement, etc.

Try espn.com, si.com, the milwaukee journal sentinel and cbs.sportsline.

It\'s not an arcane science, do some reading

Check out Pederson\'s numbers in 2001: seven snaps, zero passes and a kneel-down against St. Louis in the playoffs. (Although he did crank a homer in the team\'s charity softball game this summer.) His numbers are typical. In the last nine seasons Favre\'s backups have averaged less than seven completions per season. Oh yeah, Favre also takes 99.9% of all snaps in practice, and if Pederson ever jumps in for a practice snap Favre yells, \"Go getcha a couple crumbs in there, big guy.\"

You cannot talk of Favre as one of the best ever without knowing the same has
to be said of Warner, not if you are objective at all and not mesmerized by
Favre\'s persona and his media popularity.
Sure maybe the swashbuckler is more appetizing to the average fan than the
choirboy, but isn\'t off the field character a GOOD thing, something you want
kids to follow?

Warner has also shown himself to be a far better mentor to the backup QBs
than Favre, who gave Warner the cold shoulder in Green Bay when Kurt was in
camp there.

Just a couple of sources. I don\'t lie. Reasonable people may disagree over what the facts mean, but I don\'t lie about what they are.

who gives a crap if favre is a good mentor (although there have been several backups from GB become starters elsewhere)

the point is saying AB shouldn\'t be a starter because he was drafted to be a backup is retarded

and for all you idiots who think AB sucks: GET OVER IT!!!!!!
he is the starter and will be for several years to come, so quite whining and suck it up

just exactly who do you think we should have gotten instead? and if you say \'we shoulda drafted one\' you\'re dumber than i thought because that would have put us out of playoff contention for at least another 4 years, name one free agent QB over the last 3 years that is better than AB

you can\'t so stop the damn whining, there\'s probably close to 15 teams out there that would love to have AB, if you don\'t like AB from a personal standpoint fine BUT SHUT THE HELL UP!!!
i hate the lakers and the damn yankees but i don\'t try to put together weak arguements to prove they suck when they don\'t

Don\'t ****ing come here and insult my intelligence, boy. I\'ve written more than you have read. Whoop-dee-f~king-doo, you posted one thread. But there are thousands of them out there, huh?
Personal note there, you want some cred, post three different sources stating the same thing, then I\'ll believe it. But if I\'m going to believe everything I read on the internet, then the kid that died in a hospital during a routine operation because someone used a cell phone, Metallica suing the group Unfaith over the use of E and F chords, and Bill Gates giving me $1000 for forwarding a damn email, must all be true, huh jack~ss? If someone asks you to back up something you post, either suck it up and do it, or be forthcoming and say you are lazy. All I did was ask for some links, you post one, and proceed to s~t on me, verbally. Battle of wits, you will lose.

BMG --

That\'s a very interesting article. I live in Brett Favre country and seems like everyone down here has a \"Brett Favre Story\" I\'ve heard a lot of people tell me what a jerk he is. I never really paid any attention to them, but I guess maybe it\'s true.

The Brett Favre madness down here sickening as far as I\'m concerned. There\'s street\'s named after him and everyone of his 1000 realitives. His uncle is mayor of Bay St. Louis, Ms. There are countless shrines made in Brett Favres honor, including the bar he used to hang out in Kiln, Ms. We have the honor of getting to watch every Green Bay game down here, regardless if there are better games on. Of course the Saints do take priority if over the Packers though.

Anyway, you proved yourself correct but it\'s still irrelevent.

I never said that. I didn\'t even insinuate that. I said the GREEN BAY didn\'t expect him to start b/c they have Favre. I only brought that question up for one reason - to see Billy\'s reaction - which suprisingly was fairly good.

On the Favre issue - the guy\'s good ole boy persona only works b/c he\'s as far away from the good ole boys as possible. His family is full of criminals, druggies, and just generally bad people. Yes, I know some of \'em. While I have never had a run-in with Brett, everyone I\'ve ever met who did down south way didn\'t have a kind word to say about him. Nonetheless, the guy can play football.

B&B--Perhaps I should have just posted the sources I\'d looked at.

Without doubt you have posted more on this board than I\'ve read on this board, and often it\'s substantive.

As for intelligence, \"Whoop-dee-doo\" doesn\'t show any, boy.

By the way, if you\'ll forward this to 10 people, the Tom Benson will give you a new car, he\'s testing the properties of e-mail in South Louisiana.
