Former Giants and Vikings Quarterback Fran Tarkenton has decided to weigh in on the Brett Favre situation, and he is not a happy camper.
In an interview on an Atlanta radio station that was then reported from other outlets such as the New York Daily News, Tarkenton hopes that Favre comes back so he can fail with the Vikings. Tarkenton doesn't like the way Favre has treated the Packers after years of their loyalty to #4, and that the media and fans glorify the Favres of the world.
He says on Favre, "I think he has been a great flamboyant quarterback, but he has made more stupid plays than any great quarterback that I've ever seen." Not exactly uncovering any amazing truths here that Favre has made some dumb plays, I just don't understand why he takes the unnecessary shots. Sounds like Fran still wishes he was in the spotlight and someone still wanted him to play. I always find it hypocritical when an old time athlete who we haven't heard from in a while comes out of nowhere to criticize a current day player for being in the news too often. Enough with that.
In addition, Tarkenton decided to take a shot of Eli Manning, calling him "just a guy," as opposed to Peyton Manning and Tom Brady. The funny thing about all of this, as was mentioned in the Daily News article, is that Eli and Favre have something Tarkenton doesn't, a Super Bowl ring. I bet deep down Fran wishes someone would ask him to come back and guide a Super Bowl contender.
