Re: Classic thread over at JI
This is dead on accurate. Courtesy of SAR I on JI:
Sorry, but we've all got the Brett Favre blinders on, myself included. I tried not to, but it was too tempting to get sucked into all the feel-good around here after years of misery.
Distance yourself from the situation. Pretend that Brett Favre signed with, say, the Houston Texans. We'd be saying....
"That Favre is over the hill, should have stayed retired."
"Once you start thinking retirement, you are retired already."
"Listen, the Packers were a 13-3 team this close to the Super Bowl yet they let him walk, forced him to, in fact. That tells you something, no?"
"Let me get this straight: A healthy Brett Favre couldn't beat Matt Cassel?"
"Boy, that Favre looks completely out of sync with his receivers. His head isn't in the game."
"Here we go again.......Favre's selfishness is going to ruin another NFL head coach. No wonder they kicked him out of Green Bay."
"The Chargers dare Favre to beat them in the air in a shootout, and he can't compete?"
"How'd he lay such an egg in Oakland? You kidding me? This guy blows."
"Look at his stats for a minute. Ignore the hoopla and the glamour, and you see a guy who is an interception machine, a guy who holds onto the ball for too long, a guy who takes 20 yard sacks, a guy who compromises his defense all day long. Makes Chad Pennington look good by comparison."
