Artificial Turf: Favre Retires… For 2nd Time in 11 Months

Young Favre

It has been reported by multiple sources and his agent (as it should have been done 3 years ago) that Brett Favre will retire “for good this time.” The 39 year-old, 18 year veteran of the league leaves behind him a trail of cheese, irrational hatred, an assortment of NFL passing records, a Super Bowl Ring, a bunch of Wrangler Jeans, asshole New Yorkers and a sure fire bet as a first ballot Hall of Famer. He retires as the NFL’s all-time leader in touchdowns (464), completions (5,720), attempts (9,281), yards (65,127), wins (169) and interceptions (310), bonehead plays attempted (1,427) and boneheaded plays completed (583).

Favre played the game without expressing any signs of doing it anything other than 150% percent his way. Stubborn, aggressive, irrational and unchanging. All things that may be said about me one day… but on the field, at the helm of an entire franchise, it is also imperative that you sync with those around you. This is what I believe to be Brett’s biggest downfall. His emotional leadership, toughness and ability to play through injury does not mean that he did his best at helping his team on the field, his job primary concern.

Brett Favre could have been better at helping his team win. Stubborn and shoot-from-the-hip aggressiveness is streaky because it relies on a gamble. And for every gamble that the house won, it hurt his team. Being the all time leader in TDs isn’t as good as not being the all time leader in INTs and having more Bling. Perhaps if Favre had taken more instruction and coaching, he would have benefited from more restraint; while this would have surely taken away from his big play potential, it would have decreased his stupid play potential as well. Simply because Favre always had mental toughness doesn’t necessarily mean he had mental intelligence.

Even still, the Hall of Fame cowboy (not the team, the homosexual image we all have after Brokeback Mountain) rides off into the sunset to the cheers of middle America. Again.
