Its not like Brett Favre decided in April not to retire. He held this team hostage & screwed with them for a while as he has done numerous times with teams & is not even going to be starting until week 2 of the preseason (yet again). With the exception of 2007, Favre has sucked in recent years. He has the most all time INTs & if it is only a factor of longevity then how come John Elway would have had it. He has one Championship & lost to Michael Vick in the snow in the Playoffs as a career highlight.The way he acted last year was deplorable. He refused to handoff to one of the best RBs in the game in 2008 (Thomas Jones). He threw more 3 INT games than any QB in memory. He rivaled the 49ers O'Sullivan for turnovers before they benched him & Favre took that record. Throwing multiple INTs against terrible teams like the Raiders & Chief is disgraceful. How is any of this great or even not below average?Whats Brett Favre really going to do for the Vikings; help them crash & burn faster? They figure they have the RB who fumbles most so they can have the guy who throws into triple coverage ala Rex Grossman & more often then not its picked off?Also its not as if hes humble or even remotely a class act these days. Hes one of the biggest egomaniacs to play the game. Hes never going to be a real great like Montana, Marino or Elway. Hes just an arrogant prick who has not been a winner in a long time for one reason (himself). Its fraud also to keep declaring retirement when you have contracts & then to turn around & wait till almost September to go to a team holding them hostage & forcing them to make last minute changes. Its not like the QB position is an easy change that can be worked in through lunch for any franchise.I honestly hope the Bears defense, the Packers or the Ravens bounty threatening defense put an end to his career. Then he can get his true dream of announcing with one of his creepy obsessive fans (aka so-called unbiased announcers)! I doubt many people would be sad to see him gone in all honesty & he brought it upon himself with his ego & his selfishness.
