  1. Like you Darlene, I jumped here at work when I saw the title of this out on the home page!! Well, the pictures are cool. Thanks Bernie.
  2. Good point Beatnut. I heard over 10,000 attended practice yesterday and Brett unleashed a few 50 yard throws!
  3. More importantly, do the Jets have the offensive line to support Brett? A few break downs,some INTs thrown into traffic and the honeymoon is over.
  4. I'm a Packer fan, always will be but I'll be keeping a close eye on Brett. I'm still a fan. He said at his press conference "I'm a Packer and always will be"...that was cool. On to the Aaron Rodgers era...let's strap it up and get it on!!!
  5. I remember Brett saying that there was a few reasons why he retired back in March and there was one which he didn't want to discuss --- I think there is some type of friction between Brett and some of the higher ups -- Ted Thompson perhaps. Also, I had heard last week that Brett had no interest in playing for the Jets, and suddenly he is there. You don't suppose the Vikings will put together one of those Herschel Walker trades and get Brett?
  6. I guess if Lombardi can leave and go to the Redskins then Brett can leave for the Jets. Got to feel sorry for Aaron Rodgers at this point -- what shoes to fill. Anything less than 10 wins and they will be looking for his head! I'm a Packer fan first...Favre fan second.
  7. ESPN reports Brett is a Jet. Jeez, I'm going to be sick. Go Pack Go.
  8. Best Wishes for a happy and healthy birthday! Have fun. Cheers, Billy
  9. Excellent review. Thanks for putting this up.

    pet prayer

    Chris - God Bless you and Rascal.
  11. This is great --- I know what I'll be watching Jan 1 and it won't be the Sugar Bowl. Hockey in Wrigley --- how cool is this!!!
  12. As far as Ted Thompson drafting Aaron Rodgers, this was done only because he was the best available athlete on the board at the time. The Packers never thought he would still be available at pick number 24 (maybe it was 23, but it was somewhere around the 20's). At the time they picked Rodgers, Brett was also talking that the coming season may be it for him. He did that alot...I'm thinking Thompson thought he better cover the organization's butt and have someone in the wings in case Brett did follow through on his retirment plans. As far as the discussions with Minnesota, Brett is communicating with Darrell Bevelle (not sure if I spelled that right) who is a former Packer coach now on Minnesota's staff. That was all over ESPN last night.
  13. Totally agree john...good point.
  14. I am a bit disappointed in Brett. What did he expect the Packers to do? Not draft a QB? Just release him? He certainly has put the organization in a tough position. For him to come out and say he doesn't feel like he is wanted out in Green Bay, well, that is pretty tough...I have been to GB many time and Brett is up there with Jesus out there. The organization asked him several time to reconsider his tearful press conference back in March. I have no problem with him coming back, but you can't expect the Packers to just roll over and tell Rodgers and Brohm to hit the road. Come on back Brett, if you are sure, and win the job. If I leave my job and they bring in a replacement and then decide 3 months later I want back in, chances are I'm not going to be able to just slide back in to my position.
  15. Not to mention a large cap hit the Packers will face if they release him out right. I don't blame the Packers one bit, hey Brett, how about coming to camp and winning the job? We've been going through the retirement business for years now.
  16. Great point Laura! Didn't he give that speech to Sterling Sharpe and most recently Javon Walker? If he plays again I hope it's for the Packers and no one else. And if he said he was coming back in April rather than waiting until now there would be no problem. What is the organization supposed to do? Let's see, our leader left, ah, let's just sit around and not move forward, maybe someday he will come back. I don't think so Brett.
  17. I think Play On was released as a single. I could be wrong. (???) I know Overnight Sensation and Party's Over were singles off of Starting Over.
  18. Santana has pitched his a** off for the Mets -- they have not supported him at all --- he could easily have 10 wins. I'll take him on my team anytime.
  19. Full marks to Bernie for another great job adding these gems!!
  20. I think Brett enjoys playing with the media. As a Packer fan, the last five years has been is he retiring, is he coming back, back and forth. It gets a bit old...however if he did play again I don't want him in any other uniform -- I consider him a Packer for life. I'm thinking though, better to go out on top rather than coming back like Reggie White did with Carolina.
  21. I'm a little late, but Happy Birthday Chris -- all the best for a great year.
  22. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
  23. Congrats to the Wings -- Hockeytown is going wild. Anyone see where Barry Melrose called Tiger Woods "Tiger Wuss" for the Tiger's comments on hockey?
