Brett Favre

Quote of the Day      “Enjoying living was learning to get your money’s worth and knowing when you had it.”       –Jake Burns, in “The Sun Also Rises”; Ernest Hemingway

Why is the Brett Favre issue so difficult to resolve?  If the Packers want him to play QB, bring him in. If they don’t, trade him for peanuts to someone outside the division.  Or if he’s really not that good any more in their opinion, just waive him and kick the Vikings’ ass anyway.  Or if Aaron Rogers is so damn good you can’t risk him sitting on the bench this year, trade him for some serious immediate help and make another run at the Super Bowl with Favre this year.  As for Favre–20 Million to stay at home doesn’t make sense to you?  You need better advice–my contact info is at and I’m available to you and any other aging quarterback with similar job offers.

I'm a 40 year old lawyer living in Ridgeland, Mississippi. I'm several years and a couple hundred miles removed from most of my old running buddies so I started the blog to provide an outlet for many of the observations and ideas that used to be the subjects of our late night/happy hour/halftime conversations and arguments.

    You wanted to throw a touchy subject out there and you did just that.

    Ultimately his heart just wasn’t there in Green Bay anymore. I understand Favre’s belief that he has been mistreated by the organization and can’t put those feelings aside and still compete for the starting QB job in Green Bay, but he brought all this upon himself. The last few years he has held the Packer’s hostage by not giving them a clear answer about whether or not he was going to return, and when he finally retired after last season they moved on. The Packers could have done things differently, but they couldn’t do anything until Favre submitted his letter to be reinstated, which took way to long in my book. He wanted to be released and have the choice to go where he wanted to go, and when he didn’t get his way he acted like the little boy in the sandlot who said he’ll take his ball and go home.

    This whole thing reminds me of the Roger Clemens saga, minus the HGH in Debbie’s ASS! People like Favre and Clemens spend their whole life competing on the diamond or gridiron and don’t know what to do with themselves when it’s all over. Why don’t they just buy a huge yacht and sail away in the sunset? Get these guys off my darn TV and radio!
