I’m not going to get mad about Brett Favre anymore, really I’m not.
I’m not going to call him selfish, egotistical, and a hog for attention, even though he is.
I’m not going to go the Chad Ochocinco route and wonder why he gets special attention and can have his negatives be constantly overshadowed by his love for the game, and by the fact that he is such a kid on the football field while the fun Ochocinco has is always vilified.
However, I will say this, there has to be a point where someone has the cojones to say enough is enough and that you aren’t bigger than the game.
Someone at some point has to go up to Mark Schlereth and Merril Hoge and tell them that they are idiots for constantly slurping Favre and his ways. Someone has to tell these people that Favre is the worst technical quarterback of his generation and benefited from having good receivers and running one style of offense for his entire career (you saw what happened to him in New York right?).
Someone at anytime, in anyplace has to put an end to the soap opera that is the Favre retirement decision. It’s like any season of Heroes after season 1, annoying. Yes I am ranting about Favre, again. It’s just that I’m so sick of this story and the fact that it won’t go away.
Packers GM Ted Thompson got tired of it and did the right thing by moving on with Aaron Rodgers years ago, too bad for the Vikings they don’t have a Rodgers to move on with, nor drafted anyone to assume such a position. The Vikings are at fault for being so reliant on Favre because of not properly planning for their future by developing John David Booty who they drafted three years ago or drafting a quarterback in the first two rounds of the last two years of the draft. The fact that Brad Childress, who flies down to Mississippi to talk to Favre, doesn’t know what he’s going to do is laughable.
He knows Favre is coming back, he knows the routine. He’s going to see Favre in camp in about two weeks ready to go while the other players have been earning their reps in camp. He’s feeding into it.
I just want Zigi Wilf to come out and say to Brett Favre, “dude, yes or no?” stop letting him do the same run around with the fans, media and players that he’s been doing and getting away with. It’s as if everyone is afraid of the wrath of Favre and I don’t know why.
The guy is the most statistically decorated QB of our time, but he has cost his teams more than he has helped them (2005 divisional game versus Philly, 2008 NFC championship versus the Giants and last year versus the Saints just to name a few). Favre isn’t Joe Montana, Troy Aikman or Terry Bradshaw. Heck I’ll put Tom Brady and Peyton Manning ahead of him in retrospect.
Just get the message across to him, stand up to him, something. I really don’t want to go through another summer of this, really I don’t. even this blog is feeding into the Favre frenzy. I’M SICK OF IT!!!
See I went against my word, I got mad. I really hate Brett Favre, please go away.
