Tron Legacy opens Friday and it's indescribable how excited I am for it. But it's somehow only the second most talked about legacy being discussed these days. After missing his first start in 18 years on Monday night despite God's intervention at the MetroDome Sunday morning, Brett Favre's career may or may not be over. I believe he's got three games left in him. Regardless, it's time to begin shopping memoirs. When it comes to Favre's legacy, I'll quote the 43rd, George W. (Don't read too much into it.) Historians who live the moment have always got their prejudice. Something about Brett Favre brings out the extremes in people. I saw both extremes in 2007 and this fall. In 2007 couldn't stand him. Back then Brett Favre was rattling off a career season in Green Bay because a head coach had finally holstered the gunslinger but I rolled my eyes at the adulation over Favre. Some were calling him the greatest quarterback of all-time. Quite honestly, I thought he was overrated. A byproduct of his jovial persona and childlike enthusiasm. Sure he'd just broken a litany of Dan Marino's records but he was reckless, undisciplined and broke an interception record at 37 it took George Blanda 48 years to set. Some call him a riverboat gambler, I know him as the human equivalent of one of Siegfried and Roy's white tigers. He could be your teams savior one moment and the next moment do a complete 180 and maul your season. Green Bay and Minnesota found out late in January of 2008 and 2010. Then came, the move to New York and the hype he carried came along with him. Around that time, the tide of opinion surrounding him changed for everyone including me.
