I will be suprised if he comes back. There's no way GB can make it back to the Superbowl next year without some major revamping of the team, so what's in it for him to come back?

Maybe next year if he comes back, Walker will catch some of his deep jump balls and he won't look so bad. The ACL injury throws that up in the air though. Donald Driver is a possession WR.

Why should he revert? The Pack is looking like it's going to get even worse unless they can create some serious cap space.

I don't know how you can say this as I haven't found a single personnel example that would suggest their being worse than last year.

Walker will be back, Murphy will be back, Ferguson will be healthy, Driver will still be there. Bubba Franks should be healthy again. Flanagan could come back, they still have two great tackles, they have a ton of room in cap space, their defense is improving. They could sign steve hutchinson to fill in at a much needed guard spot, but even if it isn't him they'll draft someone and be better on the O-line. They are making changes, yes, but I don't think any of the changes could cause them to implode like they did last year. The running game will hold up with Ahman and davenport or without them. Gado can be our starter.

To be honest I don't feel like this is biased opinion, it seems like Favre is poised for a good if not spectacular year.

I heard he will announce his decision sometime in March, I personally do not think he will be back, this team seems like it should go into rebuilding and Favre will not want to be a part of that.

I agree with Seahawk. The team is in the rebuilding process, and it would just be better for Rodgers to lead it considering hes going to have to anyway in years to come.

Perhaps there's news more readily available in Green Bay, and if so it'd be nice to hear it, since I hate to see Favre go out on such a sour note, but here's where I see a huge problem. The list of current Unrestricted GB free agents:

Grady Jackson
Aaron Kampman
Ahman Green
Najeh Davenport
Tony Fisher
William Henderson
Mike Flanagan
Ryan Longwell

Earl Little
Grey Ruegamer
Paris Lenon
Kevin Barry
Rob Davis
Craig Nall

The last half dozen wouldn't worry me, but losing your top 3 RBs, your 4th RB, and your starting fullback. Losing your place kicker, your nearly irreplaceable mammoth DT, your younger underrated pass rusher, your starting center, that's just a lot. Sure, not all those guys will probably leave, some will be resigned, but this is a huge laundry list of needs to have going into FA, especially for a team that still had major needs to begin with.

This would leave them entering the offseason with

- only Noah Herron, Samkon Gado, and Vonta Leach in the backfield.
- Adrian Klemm and two 7th round nobodies at OG (is Whitticker or Wells starting material?)
- Only two OTs on the entire roster
- Chris White(undrafted, rookie I think) at Center
- No one much to speak of at DT
- starting spots empty at DE and OLB
- No kicker, and no long snapper (I imagine Rodgers can fill Nall's spot as holder)

I hope I'm wrong, because I don't want Favre to retire like this, but it just doesnt look good to me.

must resign flanagan, grady jackson, kampman, and hopefully henderson (henderson to a short-term deal however due to age)....the rest are replaceable....

draft a rb in the second (addai anyone??)...aj hawk in the first....and then try to fill some holes on the offensive line and defensive backfield

Well there will be some people leaving no doubt.

Jackson - Had a good year but is a huge injury risk and the money could be better spent on younger talent

Kampman - Great Motor & work ethic but lacks the pure talent to be a consistent threat. Would love to keep him around but he choose to bolt to a team willing to over pay for him or a promise of a dedicated starting spot.

Green - Reports are that he would be willing to sign a 1 year deal with the Pack to come back next year. Needs to have a healthy year before he can cash a really fat contract plus he likes Greenbay.

Davenport - has shown ability but possibly has a big enough injury risk attatched to scare off most teams. Esp with the abundance of RB these days.

Fisher - Good 3rd down back but very replaceable

Flanagan - Injuies have mounted up & he probably isn't realiable enough for the starting job anymore. Grey Ruegamer has had alot of snaps the last 2 years. While he isn't a pro bowler can be a suitable temp replacement if he resigns.

Longwell - Have an off year. Would be sorely missed as one the most accurate kickers in the NFL.

Of the second list Barry may be missed the most if he doesn't resign as he is the 71 in the U71 package that the Pack run very frequently.

I just gotta say I respect Mr. Favre for all that he has accomplished. He is a true competitor and thats what I like to see in the NFL. As for whether he should retire or not, well if he feels he can give it another go, more power to him and lets see what he can do. If not, my hat is off to him for a hall of fame career ;-D
