Posted this in the main forum but just in case you boys don't go there much, pop the corks off the champagne cause we're still in bizness:



Just as I predicted, one more year as a starter and then probably a year (or two) as a mentor. No way he was leaving that last Vikings playoff loss as his final chapter. Packer haters, start crying into your hankies!!!!

BRETT FAVRE TO RETURN TO PACKERS IN 2005
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Brett Favre is returning to the Green Bay Packers for the 2005 season.

Coach Mike Sherman told The AP on Thursday that he had a two-hour conversation with his quarterback on Wednesday night in which Favre informed him his wife is doing well in her cancer treatment, so he's planning to play at least one more season, maybe more if his own health holds up.

"It came down to his wife and she's doing well in her recovery," Sherman said. "She wants him to play. He said he's looking forward to playing hopefully without any off-the-field situations and 'enjoying the journey.'"

this was very interesting as well:

"Because Favre hasn't spoken publicly about his plans, it wasn't known before Thursday whether the retooled coaching staff, the stripping of Sherman's GM duties in favor of Ted Thompson or the loss of starting guards Marco Rivera and Mike Wahle in free agency would play a role in his decision.

Rivera signed with Dallas and Wahle with Carolina last week, leaving two gaping holes in an offensive line that allowed a franchise-low 14 sacks last season.

Sherman said the only thing Favre had to say about the loss of the guards was they deserved the multimillion-dollar bonuses they received.

"I told him we'll get that fixed," Sherman said. "It never was an issue. Brett said he was excited about what we did on offense last year and he thinks we can do more this year."


Damn straight you better get that fixed Sherm.

And what a classy guy Favre is what with his compliments of his ex-teammates.

Nice for us here in the GB room to have a little something concrete to shake things up round here!
