Furious over the Packer's failed attempt at trading for Randy Moss, Brett Favre's agent called Ted Thompson today and demanded a trade. Yes, he was that mad. The Packers could have gotten Moss for a 5th rounder early, until the Pats swooped in and stole him for a 4th. Moss reportedly really wanted to play for the Packers and would have restructered his deal in favor of the Packers. However, T Squared balked. Now you have a future HOFer who really wanted a playmaker, has none. He lost his RB, Driver is getting old, Bubba is slow, and other than that he has some rookies and other inexperienced wr's to throw to. Brett loves winning, and he thinks he can win every game. But hes a bit frustrated now because he just does not have the talent he wants around him, especially when the management had the chance to get a playmaker. After talking with coach mccarthy, Brett cooled down a bit. He is just trying to get a rise out of the team, and it could be working. There is no such thing as a rebuilding year with Brett at QB, he wants to win the super bowl every year. Brett also said:
"Our offense struggled last season," Favre told Biloxi Sun-Herald reporter Al Jones, who is a close friend of the Favre family's. "If it were not for our defense, we would not have won eight games. Right now, it's hard to be optimistic. I'm not getting any younger, and I think everyone knows that. I don't have five years to rebuild. No one in Green Bay is saying rebuild, but it's hard to look at where we are going and say, 'How can they not be rebuilding?'
"I don't know if I've lost faith, and I think everyone in the organization wants to win. I just don't know if it includes me. If it's going to be five years from now, I'm not going to be here. This is 17 years for me, and I want to win."
We will see what happens in 07, but clearly backup Aaron Rogers is not ready to take the helm, and Packer fans are not ready to let Brett walk.
