I'm just glad it's done and over with. I was getting pretty weary of people asking "is he or isn't he" seemingly every day for the past month and a half. At least it's in time for the draft, so that people can stop speculating that Green Bay's going to draft a QB.
Regardless of whether or not they put a team behind Favre, I seriously doubt they'll be contenders next season (though depending on what offseason moves are made a playoff appearance isn't out of the question). He's just not as good as he was, although that's still probably better than almost half of the starting QBs in the NFL right now.
As much as I dislike Favre (or more appropriately fans/analysts/commentators who man-crush on him), considering what he's done for that franchise they probably owe him more than to put out a team of schlubs that leads to him retiring after consecutive losing seasons.
TO BILL BRASKY!
My LiveJournal, where you can read tons of stuff that you don't give a crap about.
You can't do that because of the salary cap rules. If Warner loses, you are stuck paying him that salary to be a backup and in the event of a trade that roster bonus becomes accelerated into 2004's cap.
