It's Me!!

I'm going to try and make this blog nonpolitical, the best I can. I am interested in many more things other then politics and this is where I'll include that stuff. I am going to make this blog the place to catch up on how the family and I are doing and what's on my mind other then politics. It's gonna be hard, so don't be surprised if I rant from time to time. Oh and my creations are mine, if you wanna copy them get permission. Copyright belongs to me.

Should I Stay or Should I Go Now?

Once again the neverending questions regarding the retirement of Brett Favre loom over the heads of us Green Bay Packer fans. This season Brett hasn't had one of the "Favrelike" years fans, players and coaches expect from him. But that shouldn't deter the future Hall of Famer from coming back for at least one more season. I've watched a lot of Packer football this season and I haven't seen any evidence that he's lost anything. Although his numbers tell a different tale, the Pack was bitten by the injury bug pretty severely this season. He's had to work with a thin recieving corp as he lost Javon Walker early in the season, Bubba Franks wasn't 100% and was never able to click with most of the recievers. The offensive backfield was hit especially hard, losing Ahman Green, Najeh Davenport, Tony Fisher for parts of the season, the recent up and comer Samkon Gado and Rashard Lee. He lost two key components to an offensive line that protected him well for numerous years and the line never really gelled either. With all the changes that happened during this season, Brett was forced into situations where he had to be the man. He had to try and make something happen which made him force a lot more then he has in past seasons.
If Brett Favre should choose to retire, words cannot express what he meant to the Green Bay Packer organization, the NFL and Packer fans all over the world. He was a 3 time MVP, brought the title back to Titletown and set numerous team records. He meant a lot to the NFL as he provided fans with more excitement with his tremendous arm and gunslinging ways. Fans everywhere will miss watching Brett on the field, his passion, toughness, dedication and the childlike way he enjoyed playing the game that he loved. Brett's presence on the field and sidelines of Lambeau Field will be missed by not only Packer diehards but true fans of the NFL.
I hope Brett doesn't decide to hang up his cleats just yet. His skills haven't diminished, his arm is still second to none and he's still capable of making defenders miss the sack. He still seems to enjoy playing even through his first career losing season as a starting quarterback. I believe his passion is unmatched as well as his will to win. He's still got a lot to offer the team as I firmly believe if he had a full roster his numbers would be different and the win-loss total would be different.
Here's to you Brett, thank you for the memories you've provided so far in your career and thank you for bringing the title back to Titletown. But most of all thank you for your unbridled passion for the game, for winning and for the Green Bay Packers. Thank you for being you and enjoying the game and bringing the fans years of enjoyment. Fans everywhere salute you, may you make the best decision for you and your family.

This is true. It's sad that the Pack fired Coach Sherman today.. that might be the nail in the coffin as far as Brett is concerned. I am anxious for him to make up his mind. I hope he does what is right for him and his family.

Dear blog site owner,

I'm stopping by after a long hiatus. I read a number of your posts and have to admit that I am impressed by the decisive change in your thinking, whose sincerity, I also admit, I first doubted.

It takes a little courage to stick to one's opinions. It takes a truckload of courage to change one's opinions when the facts call for it. Incredible story, yours is. Keep up the blogging.

My own has been frozen by Blogger, who mistakenly took it for a source of spam and never fixed their error, but I still read others' from time to time.

Doggone, when did that happen? I usually visited every couple of weeks or so. Sometimes you've gotta take the blinders off and not be afraid to delve further into an issue. I've done such a thing and it feels great. Instead of letting others think for me, I do it myself. What a feeling. Thanks for stopping by!! Come again, I usually update at least every other day, depending on the news cycle.
