Ahh yes so Brett Favre plans on reporting to Packers Training Camp. This obviously means that he's going to, at some point, file for reinstatement with the league. This is a brilliant move by Favre..he's going to force the Packers, who otherwise wouldn't have done a thing, to make a move of some sort.
Sunday, when the Packers report for camp, is going to be an absolute circus. Favre doing all of this frustrates me beyond belief. Favre says he doesn't want this to negatively affect Aaron Rodgers...I'm pretty sure Brett showing up to camp is going to do very little to help Aaron out. The Packers have been very clear that Aaron Rodgers is there guy. As he should. You've gone the entire summer...all of these mini camps preparing and tailoring the offense to Aaron. You can't take all of that back. You've done everything but, have Aaron's name be called out during the starting line ups during Week 1.
Favre showing up is huge. This means Favre will be traded..he doesn't want to be a back up and the Packers don't want him to start. People seem to have preconceived ideas based on what they've seen of Aaron during games when he's come in for Brett. What people seem to be forgetting is that all of the stuff that Aaron was doing involved schemes specifically designed for Brett Favre. Having Favre there is going to do nothing for Aaron. This frustrates me incredibly because no matter how good Aaron Rodgers does this year it'll be overshadowed by how the Brett Favre dilemma is handeled. And for good or worse Ted Thompson is going to be viewed as the guy who got rid of Favre...I personally don't think it's fair. This situation is only going to end poorly.
