Last season may have been the best of Favre's career. He sported a career best 107.2 QB rating and his 4202 yards are his highest since 1998.
His seven interceptions were the lowest of his career while his 68.4 percent completion percentage was the best of his career.
A year after Favre endured one of his worst career years with the Jets (22 TD to 22 INT) without complaining about Coach Mangini (who was incidentally fired after the season), he complains about the coaching on a winner?
It doesn't add up.
Farve and Childress were seen having many heated exchanges, but the end result was a level of production that no 40-year old quarterback had ever achieved.
So why is Favre complaining? This is a team that won 12 games and produced 10 Pro Bowlers.
In fact, if the rule for overtime didn't favor the receiving team so greatly, it could have been Favre and his teammates hoisting the Lombardi Trophy.
So what is that indicative of? How can a coach that supposedly knows so little about offense average 380 yards of offense with 53 total touchdowns?
Perhaps Childress knows more about offense than Favre wants to give him credit for.
In all likelihood, Childress and Favre have differing views on how an offense should be run. But that's not always a bad thing. It may be that Childress is the yin to Favre's yang.
Hell, John Lennon and Paul McCartney had a very strained relationship, but together they produced some of the greatest music of all time.
I can understand the way Favre feels. After all these years he wants to return on his terms. But in Minnesota, Childress dictates the terms.
What should both parties learn from this? They may disagree, but if they can find a way to suck it up and work together, perhaps they will be making sweet music together come February.
