    If The Packers are playing to win this year (and why not , they were only a couple plays away from a Superbowl last season in a weak NFC) they play a HOF QB over a guy who has a grand total of 218 yard passing ..... If they are building for the future they play the unknown and see what they get in a top 10 draft pick next year.

    You should have added this option to the poll:

    "They will do whatever Brett and Goodell want them to do."

    Sorry, guys. I'm being a turd about this. I just don't think this is fair or appropriate. The Packers wanted to move on, but they weren't allowed. How warped is THAT? LOL. Oh well.

    I guess it helps "ratings" and puts the eyes on the NFL.

    2nd stringer behind Brohm. Rodgers suck and Bret is a over-the-hill 40 something year old brat.

    I voted that he'll be the starter, but I think they'll give Aaron Rodgers some playing time this year.

    I vote - another Brett thread? Sigh...

    PS
    He doesn't have to "agree" to be the backup.

    I would also like to say; How can you come back if you never really left? He was a QB at the end of last year and apparently he will be one at the beginning of this year too.

    Of course the Packers could have moved on. They could have released him. They got smart again all of a sudden and are letting their best QB play again.
    They'll move on again. Right back to the playoffs.....

    I'd trade him but if he is on the team I think they will call it a competition but give Rodgers the job and let Favre sit.

    So if Brett tanks this season, then what? If he throws 20 ints by mid-season and the pack are 0-8 will the fans and talking heads shut up and let the staff do what they do? It's almost like these guys are in a fail fail scenario. If he succeeds then everyone will say see I told you so; if he fails then everyone will say well why didn't you trade/stick to your guns?

    I don't know about that Frog. A 12 million $ backup and a fan favorite riding the pine? Either way, it's a lose lose situation for the Pack. If Brett starts you'll likely lose Rodgers. If Brett doesn't start you'll likely piss off fans and dump 12 mill.

    IMO, Rodgers isn't good enough to beat Brett out in an honest position battle. Even if he's given the job, he'll likely be injured at some time.

    will be interesting if Favre has a good season and the Pack goes and wins the Super Bowl and he breaks the curse ...what a legacy that would leave
    to retire on
