I really don't see Favre helping out the 2007 Packers. I think he should just hang them up while he has his health. Then again, once he retires the NFL might screw with his benefits. Maybe that's why he won't retire yet.

Kitty, like we all suggested earlier, why don't you just go over to Zoo Confessional if you've got something you want to get off your chest? That might be a more proper forum. Chastising Bonochick is just going to get you nowhere slowly.

Something tells me Brett Faverererer doesn't have to worry about retirement benefits.

I guess all I can do is remain optimistic. That's pretty much how Packer fans have to be in order to deal with a season now. It helps that I live in an area filled with Lions fans...they don't have much to sing about either.

Yes, the Lions really suck. Most of the expansion teams have made it to the Super Bowl, but the Lions still have no Super Bowl appearance.

BTW, EVERY NFL player should be concerned about their benefits when they retire.

it's not 1950... the minimum nfl salary is more than 250,000 dollars. every NFL player who has been stupid with their finances and have no education to fall back on should be concerned about their benefits.

brett favre? i think he'll be fine.

Really? 24,000 a year in pension. Former Steeler, Mike Webster had to wait until after he was dead for his family to get disability. I think you've got the NFL confused with MLB.

Did I miss the post about Thomas Jones being traded?
http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=2788962

Or how about Lance Briggs wanting to be traded b/c he doesn't like being franchised? Or I should say, he wants a big contract...which we offered him before, but he turned it down. He wants out of the organization.

To be honest, I could have predicted this at the beginning of this past season. And I do think this is a kind thing to do for Jones. But I guess you could argue that Briggs does deserve the contract/money.


Oh, and did you also hear Tank Johnson is NOW looking at jail time for again breaking his parole? But don't worry, he learned his lesson last time. If this is true, he should be released. (I can't verify this, it's a story from my dad. And he could be confused b/c of the pending trials)

go bears...

Edit: I want to clarify. I hate seeing Jones go. But I knew the organization wanted to go with Benson. He was the 4th overall pick. They think he's ready, Jones will only sit the bench or be a 3rd down back at best. He will be good in New York. I will miss him. But it was the kind thing to do. I'm so scared now. Rex and Cedric? We have a lot to prove.

the jets got thomas jones for a pair of joe namath panty hose and a bucket of kfc extra crispy.

i understand chicago wanting to trade him, but shit... they couldn't have gotten more than that? all they did was swap 2nd round picks. i'd rather trade him straight up for a third round pick and keep my own 2nd rounder. i don't get it.

I can only guess that the Bears thought it was worth moving up about 20 spots in the second round for, but hell, if they wanted to do that, make the Jets throw in a fifth or sixth rounder as well then.

At least when the Dolphins knew they would lose Welker, they worked it out with the Pats to tack on a seventh rounder to make it easy for everyone. You never know who you'll get in those late rounds. Just ask New Orleans about last year.

Tom Brady, 6th round...not much more evidence necessary that late round picks can be valuable.
Like phanan mentioned, the Saints got Marques Colston last year in the 7th round with only 3 players drafted after him.
Adalius Thomas was also a 6th rounder.

Bears...lets not mince words...were stupid and got screwed by the Jets on that deal.
