Ego

Brett Fave is back. I can’t believe it!

For football fans, it’s a dream come true! In fact, I’m so excited that I’m using exclamation marks like my mother does when she writes e-mails! Man, this kicks ass! Favre! FAVre! FAVRE!

Glub.

Let’s be honest here …

A. What a joke. Forget the fact that Favre was, at best, bad for the New York Jets last year. Forget the fact that the Vikings have two young quarterbacks, Sage Rosenfels and Tavaris Jackson, who will now be spending their winter holding clipboards. What irks me to no end about this is the ego. You’re Brett Favre—the greatest quarterback in Packers history … and you sign with the Vikings!? Such disrespect.

B. ESPN makes me want to vomit. Not always, but certainly in their Favre coverage. Favre, Favre, Favre, Favre, Favre, Favre. The guy is a 39-year-old washed-up quarterback. We only care because you keep insisting we care. So stop! Really, stop!

C. Just being honest—I’m now rooting for Michael Vick much harder than I’m rooting for Favre. Vick’s story is redemption. Favre’s story is that of a grating old man who won’t go away.

D. I don’t think the Vikings will be very good. Same old story—great halfback, mediocre receivers … no QB.

E. Yeah. That’s about it.

  1. It’s sad. Brett Favre used to be so much fun to watch — his smile and enthusiasm and love for the game were infectious. And his work ethic/dedication were inspiring. Now he’s just an irritating egomaniac who doesn’t know when to grow up and age gracefully. Shut up, invest your millions, parent your kids and let someone else have a go at the glory. And for goodness sake, don’t go buying any chirpy waitresses Escalades.

  2. Farve is gonna have some good passes. ESPN is going to cover it like it was Man Walks On The Moon. Then he’s going to break down and throw a ridiculous pass into triple coverage. And that will be the Vikings season.

    Am I the only person who thinks Brett Favre is the most overrated QB in recent history? The guy is a product of the media love.

    Remember the Giants awesome run to the Super Bowl? Giants defense was awesome up in Lambeau, or maybe Favre and his gun-slinging mentality just gave the game to the Giants.

  4. Jeff, does this mean I shouldn’t draft Favre in my fantasy draft this Saturday?

    A 39-year old quarterback with a bum shoulder…what does that say about the two young, up-and-comers Rosenfels and Jackson?
