Why is my question? I'm about as big a Football fan as there is, I understand the Packers fan hate the Vikings, and vice-versa. I'm a New Orleans Saints fan, I pretty much hate the dirty birds, the Panthers, the Bucs, every team in NFC South division. However, I love to watch Matt Ryan play, Jeff Garcia play, while he was at Tampa Bay, and Jake Delhomme play. I neither hate these guys or want them to get hurt or think they're trash because of who they play for.
Favre, for the most part, held the Packers hostage for 4 or 5 years, wouldn't say whether or not he was going to return to play or retire. Who really knows what the man was thinking? He didn't won't to participate in training camp, he was tired of the vigors of a long season, didn't have the motivation anymore, his arm hurts, he wanted to mow grass, who really knows? Besides Brett Favre .......
So, now he's come out of retirement again, god forbid, he's changed his mind yet again! He should be tared and feathered! "How dare a 39 year old has-been come out and ruin our team!" $12 million this year, $13 million next year. What an idiot, why would the man do this, its only money right. LOL
Let me ask a few questions; could it possible be that the man LOVES THE GAME? Loves the competition, could that be it? Maybe? Could the money have something to do with his return?
Sure, the man is not the QB he use to be, he doesn't have to be either, manage the game is all he has to do. With AP in the backfield and that great defense, who wouldn't want to be the quarterback for the Vikings?
I write this post not being a huge fan of Brett's, just a guy who loves football and loves to watch athletes play, athletes that LOVE THE GAME. You can say a lot of things about Brett Favre but you can't say he doesn't love the game!!
Bottom line, the man is a WINNER!
So, with that being said, I say more power to ya Brett, knock'em dead, hope you win every game you play in, hope you help the Vikings to / win the Super Bowl. If you decide to retire next season, well that's good too, if you change your mind again, more power to ya.
Everybody has a opinion, what I don't get is why all the hate ....... why would you call this man trash? Maybe I just don't get it ........
