Remember that from There's Something About Mary? I do....funny line. Anyway, that's not what I'm writing about today. Today is all about Brett, because right now everything is all about Brett.
I've never been a fan of Brett Favre. There, I said it. Sure the dude was fun to watch, kind of like a Sprint Cup race at Daytona is fun to watch. Both can have moments of jaw-dropping greatness, but deep down you know you're waiting for the "Big One" to happen. It can be a 15 car wreck at the Beach or a 5 interception game, but you're just waiting for it to go down.
I don't blame Brett for wanting one more season in the sun. It's got to be a hell of thing to go with with your last play being a weak pick that led to your team going down in OT in a Conference Championship game. That's not the picture you want on the last page of the scrapbook.
But Brett is also asking for something he knows that Pack can't give him. They can't release him, because he's going to head to the Homer Dome and take snaps for the Vikes. The fix was in on that one way before he went on Fox News and talked to Greta Van Facelift. And they can't bring him back as the starter. The team handed the keys to stadium over to Aaron Rogers and he ran with them. Kind of hard to go to the kid now and expect him to be anything next season.
So at the end of the day, you're SOL Brett. Sorry.
