I think what screwed him up was the loss of his father.... I do believe his father was half the game to him.... I feel bad for him.

Brett Favre has become a prima donna. In his mind he has become bigger than the game. I think he believes the fan hype. Most of his record setting stats have come from longevity, not from the quality of his play week in and week out. Yes, he had a good season last year... but it was his best in some time. He's basically untouchable and uncoachable... When he throws stupid interceptions he gets that 'aww shucks' stupid grin on his face like it doesn't matter and won't work on his discipline. The Packers had the youngest team in football last year with the oldest Quarterback who didn't even participate in "team" activities. He separated himself from the team and jacked them around for just a little too long (IMHO).

Okay... yes. He is a likeable enough character... and boo-hoo, his dad died. Lots of dads die. But I don't feel the need to feel bad for this prima donna millionaire athlete who has made a wonderful living doing what he loves.

C'mon, Z, don't be afraid to say what's on your mind.

I couldn't agree more

May understand where SQ comes from though.
I think it's time for him to step back, let well enough alone, and let someone else who is also very talented and young enough to see a future, start his own dream.

if he wins the superbowl with the jets, his reputation will not have been damaged in the least, and crow will be on the menu in green bay.

if he sucks with the jets, he's an old loon that got hit in the helmet too many times, and shoulda stayed retired.

i hope he does well here. the jets need a tough quarterback. the last bunch were too brittle.

I've been a Packer fan my whole life. I also like fine machinery. Motorcycles. Sports cars. Fast airplanes.

When Favre took off from the airfield the people of Wisconsin pretty much knew he was never coming back.

My wife asked me how I felt. I told her I was very sad.

That arrogant whiner took the Lear jet, and I was never going to see that aircraft again...
