Brett Favre the Leader. Brett Favre the Gamer. Brett Favre the epitome of everything you want in the QB position. Brett Favre the Teammate.
Or...how bout this...Brett Favre the Spiteful Donkey?
I saw his interview with Peter King linked on the JS this morning...the following is basically all you need to know about Brett Favre.
The reality, Favre knows now, is he not only wanted to play again, but he wanted to show Green Bay -- particularly general manager Ted Thompson -- that it was making a big mistake in going forward without him. "Part of me coming back last year, I have to admit now, was sticking it to Ted,'' he said in a rather startling admission.
There it is people. There it is. From the mouth of the man himself comes the proclamation of spite. It was never about the team. It's all about him. #4. This wasn't about football. This was about #4's image. "Oh...the Packers don't want me back 3 months after I've RETIRED? I'll show them! I'll show them all! I'll show them for not taking me back after I disappeared for months after the season ended and then showing up one day saying that I wanted to come back!"
I had moved on from Brett Favre. I really had. Any logical person looking at this situation knows the Packers were in the right and Favre was on the wrong. It was over. I no longer cared. Favre was proven wrong. He proved to be nothing more than an arrogant, washed up quarterback who couldn't stand his old team moving on without him.
But Favre cannot let it go. Who's been doing all the mudslinging? Nothing is coming out of the Packers' camp. Favre is behind it all. He continues to trash the very city, state, and fan base that supported him during his time at the top.
Keep it up Favre. Keep on trashing our memories with your crusade against the very team that gave you the opportunity to become the QB you became. I'm finished with you. Keep talking anymore and we'll how many left there will be to defend you.
