    Favre helping Packers foes - Fox Sports

    Jay Glazer reported today that Brett Favre called the Detroit Lions and had a conversation with coaches on how they could beat the Packers. Of course, whatever he told them didn't work, but in my opinion, it's still a very shady move on Favre's part. A move like this could permanately tarnish his repuation in Green Bay.

    Thoughts?

    Re: Favre helping Packers foes - Fox Sports

    If true, how bitter can one guy be?

    I know people want to give him a pass but he held the team hostage the last few years hemming and hawwing about whether he was going to retire. Once he made his decision the team had no choice but to move forward with life after Favre. When he changed his mind he expected them to drop everything they had planned to accomodate him.

    He's had a fantastic career, if this is true, I don't know why he would tarnish his legacy with these actions.

    I think it's fanatstic only because it happened to the Packers. Not that it helped the Lions any but I still love it.

    It doesn't count if he told the Packers. Mike McCarthy could have handed the Lions the game plan and it probably wouldn't matter. If Farve would talk to the Bears or Vikings then it is a bad move.

    Re: Favre helping Packers foes - Fox Sports

    If this is true, I do not want Favre going to the HOF in a Packer uniform.

    Favre's bitterness may be best explained by the fact that the first year starter that everybody was criticizing is performing solidly, playing through injury, and has the youngest team in the NFL in contention at this point in the season. SO FAR, it looks like the Pack made the right decision.

    Re: Favre helping Packers foes - Fox Sports

    honestly, what a bitter, busch league move by Favre. Lost a lot of respect from me - not that my respect matters to Favre, but still.

    Re: Favre helping Packers foes - Fox Sports

    So what. He never paid any attention when Rodgers was taking snaps in practice anyway, so how would he know any of his quirks? As far as the rest of the offense, any inside info Favre could give them was pointless the minute he left. It doesn't matter if you know every single play in an opponent's playbook, if they execute better than you, you are going to get beat.

    So you'd be okay with Phillip Bates calling up the rest of our opponents this year?

    never cared for Favre...but....There has been a well known rift between Glazer and the Favre clan.

    So I will take it as rumors for now.

    Love Favre but if this is true is makes me mad that he would sell out his former team mates and fans.
