Can the World Deal with Another Brett Favre Saga?

Mike KentSenior Writer IJanuary 22, 2009

Brett was a great player. He has lots of records to show for it:

Most career passing touchdowns

Most career pass completions

Most career passing yards.

And I bet there are more that I don't know of. But is he worth the Saga that will come with him in this offseason?

Last offseason, on Mar. 4, Favre announced his retirement. He said during the conference, "I know I can play, but I don't think I want to. And that's really what it comes down to." All of Green Bay was crying while saying good bye to there long-time star and Savior.

On July 2, Favre called the Packers and asked them if he can come back, Brett and the Packers front office started this Saga and neither side would let go.

On July 11, Brett asked the team to let him go so he can play for another NFL team, Packers GM Ted Thompson said he would not let Brett Favre go, it was mostly because there were rumors he wanted to go to Minnesota.

After negotiations with Tampa Bay and New York, the Packers traded Favre to the Jets on Aug. 7 in exchange for a conditional fourth round pick.

The Jets released Chad Pennington and let Brett take the field; that came back to bite them in the ass when Chad and the Dolphins beat them in the last game of the season to take the AFC east championship

Now Brett Favre is at it again; he is between the Jets and retirement. Do the Jets want to be last years GB Packers? Do the NFL fans want to watch Brett Favre on SportsCenter every day and night of the offseason, I know I don't. 

And remember all the records that I wrote on at the start of the article? Well, here is another record for Brett Favre.

Most career interceptions thrown

The guy is also old, he is not going to get any better. He is just going to get worse, and he may not be healthy in the start of the season next year. And then they would have gone throw his drama and not get a good player.

I know I am not giving the Jets a better option, but they can't do this. If he does not give a answer until a week after the Super Bowl, I would let him go.

Good luck to our Jets, we will need it.
