I've only seen the name "Brett Favre" a hundred thousand times in the last week, so I figured once more wouldn't hurt. The man whose popularity is falling faster than the stock market today asked the Packers for his release. Apparently, he wasn't getting enough attention from them. I can only hope the Packers refuse to release him and trade him somewhere, well, warmer . . .
Oh how I loved stumbling across this little tidbit from the Miami Herald, emailed to me from a friend who's a Dolphins fan. To me, this would be the perfect scenario for the Packers: Trade him to a crappy team like the Dolphins, where he'll struggle against some good AFC East defenses, where he'll never sniff the playoffs, and the team looks like geniuses for passing on a guy who looks way past his prime. At the same time, he'll win four games with the Dolphins this season and look like a savior. I see 3,000 yards, 20 TDs and 30 INTs in No. 4's future.
An ESPN.com poll showed 55% of the country thinks the Packers shouldn't start Favre this season. Only five states voted that the Pack should keep him; the big dilemma for the Packers management: One of those states was Wisconsin. -Cyd Zeigler jr.
