I will never understand why he thought it was a good idea to play for any other team. The dude was loaded, so money shouldn't have been a motivation. He was getting old, so his athleticism shouldn't have been a motivation.

All he did was screw up and become a pariah to those who considered him a god.

Yeah, if the Saints hadn't messed up his ankle, I think MN wins that game and quite possibly the Superb Owl.

Entirely possible. Peyton worked magic with a pretty weak roster that season. And then it'd be weird, him having won a SB in GB and then one in Minnesota. This scenario is what I see if Peyton's future, and it'll be weird if he wins on in Denver, especially weird if he wins two.

And it'll make Jim Irsay look like a genius in retrospect. So maybe the crazy old bastard knows what he's doing.

In his youth Favre was noted for drinking heavily and taking pain pills. This by itself could have a pronounced effect upon ones memory as you age. They're trying to portray this as a head injury issue, but there may be more than one variable involved in his medical history.
 
2013-10-25 02:49:08 PM  
As far as Brett knows, he only retired once.

So get off his back about it!

funny because the league of denial book goes in depth on how the NFL tried to use that excuse to cover all brain issues with former players before they acknowledged that a concussion is even a bad thing, much less what we know now
 
2013-10-25 03:00:22 PM  

perilsensitive: Yeah, if the Vikings don't commit 5 turnovers and Brad Childress doesn't forget how to count near the end of regulation, I think MN wins that game and quite possibly the Superb Owl.

Keith thinks the Stones are finishing up their '82 tour...

Nobody will ever beat his most consecutive games started record, especially with new concussion rules.

Also I may be the one Packer fan who doesn't mind that he went to MN. We made the right move going with Rodgers, and he had every right to go wherever he wanted.
 
2013-10-25 03:17:21 PM  
Story is a bummer. Even if Urlacher came back and won consecutive SB's with Green Bay, Minnesota and Detroit 3 years in a row I don't think I'd curse his name like some Packers fans seem to. What have you done for me lately, I guess.
 
2013-10-25 03:33:54 PM  
This doesn't surprise me.  Hell, I remember watching the game where he got a concussion, snuck back onto the field, threw a TD pass, and then later admitted he didn't remember doing that.  The man was a player but a goddamn moron when it came to injuries.

It's possible, however unlikely, that a man can go through life rolling 20 on every FORT save.

Occupational hazard.

Sorry, I have little sympathy. He got to be wealthy, famous, and worshiped by millions. Lots of occupations have health consequences for much, much less.

Not a Packer fan myself, but yeah... how can any Packer fan still resent Brett?  He got you a Super Bowl win, and (even though it was a bit ugly at the time), he left you with another future HoF quarterback who then got you another Super Bowl win.

The whole benighted country doesn't know how to pronounce it.
 
2013-10-25 03:49:18 PM  
I would do that whole 2009 season exactly the same way.

I do not regret the Favre signing at all.

The last quality QB we had was Brad Johnson. Culpepper showed he was nothing without Moss.

Favre was awesome, the season was great. It, of course, hurts to think about the NFCCG. He was no more part of the problem then anyone else.

Thank you for giving me one awesome season Brett.

Have we forgotten that he was one play away from going to the Superbowl with the Vikings? (Then he remembered that he was Brett Favre and he was playing for the Vikings). Of course, with the beatdown he took in that game, he would have been watching the Superbowl from the side lines.

Most people have given up the hate.  People are lightening up now that he's been out of the league.  I expect a retired number ceremony next year and almost everyone cheering.

It was the best 59 minutes of football I've ever watched. Fantastic offense and defense from both teams. A far better game than the Super Bowl was that year.

He was a hell of a lot closer in 1998 and he played like shiat.

There's a difference between respect for his importance to the Packers, respect for his toughness, the acknowledgement of the sports entertainment he provided, and the platonic love fans give their heroes.

Most everyone always respected him--no one loves him.  That's all on him.

Well, at least one of the turnovers came after the ankle injury.  You are certainly correct about Childress though.

Yeah that's how I feel. He did put us off until after the draft before stating he was going to comeback and threw a biatch fit when he had to compete with that kid. So that's all I really feel, don't really care after that

That game still makes me laugh. MN had it in the bag, and BAM! Favre throws an interception at the last second and loses the game! Ha ha ha!
 
2013-10-25 05:50:14 PM  
Why a professional athlete, any professional athlete, would be loyal to a team is beyond me.  Favre kicked out someone who was the "franchise" QB that got hurt.  Once healthy, he was kicked to the curb.

I hope this is just Brett being Brett; you know an AW. I'm sure there are plenty of 44 year old businessmen who spend the time away from the family that he has that don't remember that their daughter played a season of soccer. The alternative, given the hits he took, is kind of frightening.

Pre-Favre Pack was so bad that Don Majikowski looked *good*.

...


Most of the Packer fans I've met really don't hate on the old man much. I know I don't. I still have his signed jersey out on my wall.

I totally lost a lot of respect for him over how he left, I don't take anything away from him. The beating that man took in that NFCCG was as bad as I've ever seen anyone take and still stay upright.
