Here we go again -- Brett Favre, the biggest drama queen in sports, is now going to talk to the Minnesota Vikings about their quarterbacking job this season. This comes a few months after he "retired" again, this time from the New York Jets. And it comes a year after he "retired" in a tearful press conference after a great career with the Green Bay Packers.
I used to be a big Favre fan, and now I think he is one of the most selfish and deluded athletes out there. I keep hearing about how Favre hates the Packers and wants revenge on a team that paid him millions. This is all spin in Favre's mind to rationalize acting like a baby. Favre seems to forget that his retirement was voluntary last year, so his blaming G.M. Ted Thompson is absurd. Green Bay did the right thing after Favre retired and installed Aaron Rodgers at quarterback; Favre said he was done and the team moved on.
The reality is that Favre can no longer play at a high level for an entire season. Last year, he led the Jets to an 8-3 record, before he collapsed and played horribly as the team finished 1-4 and missed the playoffs. The word was that he had an arm injury down the stretch. If so, why did he selfishly keep playing when he was clearly injured? Or it was was a convenient excuse to cover up his suckitude?
The Vikings will be making a huge mistake if they sign Favre, but then again this is a team that is clueless when it comes to quarterbacks. Otherwise, they would have other quarterbacks on their roster than Sage "The Turnover Machine" Rosenfels and Tavaris "The Mediocrity" Jackson. Maybe Favre and the Vikes deserve each other. I would love to hear what other NFL fans think about Favre coming back.
