Yeah, he is. Actually, what he is is more a self absorbed jerk.
"Favre also recounted his conversations with McCarthy, saying to the New York Daily News that when he first told the Packers’ coach of his intention to return, the response was: “Oh, God, Brett, you’re putting us in a tight spot.”
And Favre, to this day, isn’t sure why McCarthy thinks that — because Favre still thinks he would have been better for the Packers this season than Aaron Rodgers.
“I think Aaron Rodgers will do a real good job, barring injury,” Favre said, “but if you’re a betting man and said, ‘Who gives us the best chance to win right now?’ … This isn’t bragging (
), but I think I would. Aaron may play great, and they’ll look like geniuses, but to not welcome me back … I just assumed it was the fear of upsetting Aaron..."
He just resides in his own universe where it's naturally always all about him... He remains so pissed that they dared to think you could actually move on from Lord Favre. These are the same guys who didn't kick his sorry ass to the curb in 2005 or 2006 when he was abyssmal and had just cost their predecessor his job, didn't tell him to shut his trap when he started whining about not signing Moss FOR HIM, and who let him come back with their rebuilt roster in 2007 because he wanted to and promised he'd actually study film for once rather than sleeping through it, who told him to take his time in March and they'd let him skip the film if that helped him get through the season, who offered to let him un-retire two weeks after he retired only to have him CONFIRM he'd rather stay retired, who offered him $20M in July to just do what he said he wanted to do!!!
