Brett: Please Stop for Your Own Good

July 9, 2008 – 12:16 am by TheRiot


I’ve systematically avoided posting about this because, among other reasons, Brett Favre is near and dear to my heart.

Note: I know this won’t sit well with others on this blog, but I’m an incredibly loyal Packers fan. I do, in fact, own a cheesehead.

I was admittedly torn when he officially announced to be his retirement, which appears now to be a flimsy decision. Favre is the only Packers quarterback I’ve ever really known. But at the same time I, like many fans and the Packers organization, moved on from what was a Hall of Fame career and prepared for the Aaron Rodgers era.

So, it is with a heavy heart (tongue in cheek, really) that I must say this to Mr. Favre: Please stop this, stay retired and enjoy your farm in Mississippi.

Personally, I’m sick of hearing about the possibility of you coming back, and to be honest, it puts the Packers in an incredibly awkward position. They can’t trade you or cut you, and they’ve already moved on without you.

Please, just let everyone move on.

  2. I would love to see Brett play another season, but in a different capacity. Let him start the games, but let’s make sure Rodgers gets equal time in every game, and let’s see who does the best job. If it turns out to be Rodgers, then make him the starter. I don’t think that even Brett would have a problem with that, being the competitor he is. This would be a way for the Packers to deal with this situation until his contract runs out.

  3. Unless he lives in The Grove and only on Saturdays, I can’t really blame Brett Fav-er-uh for wanting out of Mississippi.

  4. Split time with two quarterbacks? That would be a disaster. The old football cliche is if you think you have two quarterbacks you have zero. It’s one or the other, and I feel bad for Aaron Rodgers.
