Hoping for the crash and burnPosted Wednesday, August 6, 2008, at 11:35 PM
Great, he's a Jet now. Can he just go away?
Brett Favre has tarnished his reputation forever in my mind. He had an almost-perfect ending to his storied career and then he decided to be wishy-washy about his retirement.
My respect for him is gone. I now have a desire to see him throw twice as many interceptions as touchdowns and lose his starting job after a poor performance against the Rams in Week 10.
When it happens, I will laugh. I will throw out 10,000 "I told you so"s. I will root for Chad Pennington (provided he's not traded himself) to step in and beat the Patriots in Week 11 and squeak the Jets into the playoffs at 9-7 with a 4-2 finish, giving "Gang Green" the playoff berth they thought Favre will lead them to.
Heck, a wild-card round win wouldn't be too bad, either. Then Favre can retire the way he deserves to: as a bench player nobody has a need for anymore.
Bitter? Yes. Packer fan? No. Just an angry football fan.
