Screw Brett Favre

I've been a huge Brett Favre fan for years. Do a search on my blog, and you'll find numerous entries about him.

However, the retire/unretire, the GM hates me crap has to go. So do you, Mr. Favre. Sorry, but screw you Brett. You've gotten a lot of passes for a lot (record number) of bad passes over the years, but no pass this time.

You retired, then a few weeks later said you were changing your mind. Then a few days later changed it again. Then a few days later were asked if you wanted to change it yet again, and you said no. So the team moved on, they drafted two good college quarterbacks, and retooled the playbook for successor. They spent months of mini camps and organized team activities working on the newly retooled offense. Then you decide you want to come back, maybe. Not only that, but the team should hand you the job back, switch everything to how it used to be to accommodate you.

Even when you made the (kind of) decision to come back, you weren't man enough to come out an say it yourself. You had your mommy, agent, and brother, talking for you. When you finally do come out and open your own mouth it's to Greta Van Susteren? I'm pretty sure it wasn't to real sports journalist because one of those might have called bullshit on your antics instead of tossing softball questions with no follow up.

So what does the team do, carry 4 quarterbacks on the roster this year, instead of the two last year? Who gets cut to make room for you, in case you decide you actually want to play, for real?

I'm willing to admit, you probably would give Green Bay the best chance to win this year as QB, but you know what, I don't care. Football is the ultimate team sport, and over the last 4 or so months, you quit being a team player. You've turned into the guy from the old Bud Light commercials who when told there's no "I" in team, said "No, but you can spell ME".

Personally, I hope you end up on the Falcons, or Dolphins, a team with no weapons, no line, and no hope. That's where you belong this year, wallowing in the regret of a horrible season, with a horrible team. That's what should happen to selfish, self centered guys.

You know, I really gave Wyatt a hard time when he first posted on Brett. Brett is a Mississippi boy, but even among hometown folks, we are just embarassed. He has tarnished his name and even if he goes back in and plays and does AMAZING I don't think he can ever be "Brett" again.

Great post.

Thanks. I feel the same way, he's not going to be the same guy, and he's getting close to being compared to TO and Chad Johnson, which is really sad.

The other thing about this is how the media is unanimous in its claim that Favre definitely gives the team a better chance of winning this year. They dismiss Rogers as though he has no chance which is garbage. Favre is in his late 30's and the decline can be sudden and and without warning. Favre is experienced and probably can read a defense better than the young guys. However, even with all his experience he still threw a lot of interceptions.

Bill a large number of fans are in that same "Rodgers can't do it" camp, and want Favre back, without giving him that chance.

It's too bad, because Rodgers is the guy who's really getting the short end of this deal. I think if Favre is coming back Rodgers should ask for a trade.
