Brett Favre is quite possibly the greatest quarterback of all time, but according to me he’s lost what he had. Everyone knew him as the Packer. The guy who stayed with the team through thick and thin. Now this.

When I watched his retirement, I felt one of the game’s greats was leaving. His tears really made me feel for the guy, I mean what man wants to cry on national television.

A few months later of a possible comeback that ends up with Favre going to the Jets. He ends up 9-7 and decides that maybe it’s time to be done for good.

Going through my mind, is something along the lines of, finally he’s done, and he just isn’t the same anymore.

So then he goes to the Vikings and that’s it, I can’t stand the man I once regarded as a role model for the NFL. To put this into the extent of my feelings for Favre: I would rather have Tom Brady win another super bowl.

Now into the NFC Championship game against the Saints, we are left to wonder if this team can go all the way. Either way, he looks like the man that betrayed the Pack. After 15 seasons with the Green Machine, he has left in search of a ring.

If he loses this next game to the Saints or to the AFC champions, he looks like the man who tried and failed. We still dislike him because he left HIS team.

If he wins the super bowl, he becomes the most hated man in football. He ditched his team in search of selfish goals.
