Now, there is still a large pocket of fans in this state that blame Thompson and McCarthy for everything that happened this summer. If you're still in that camp by now, well then there is really no chance of changing your opinion. But there are also a large contingent of fans that watch these games for a different reason. Sort of the reason why you watch a hockey game for the fights, or an air show for the possibly of a plane crash.
Personally, I watch these games hoping for a disaster. I want to see Favre throw three, near four, interceptions to a team as bad as the Kansas City Chiefs. I want to hear the boo birds rain down upon Favre from the highest levels of the Meadowlands. I want to see the classic shot of Favre on the sidelines, wondering how the ball he threw up for grabs could have possibly been intercepted.
I guess I've never been one to get over things quickly.
Favre's Called Out by Media, Not by Own Family
His terrible performance wasn't just noted by jaded fans of his. Boomer Esiason recently called Favre out for being "horrendous" in his performance against Kansas City. Per Boomer, Favre was “completely just throwing the ball up and hoping" someone would catch it. And if Laveranues Coles had made one of the best catches you'll see this season, the Jets would be 3-4, losing to the Raiders and Chiefs in consecutive weeks.
One website that won't be calling out Brett Favre anytime soon is the one entitled "The Family of Favre". The site is supposed to include entries from everyone in the Favre family, but is mainly run by daughter Brittany. That was, until Deanna chimed in with some thoughts of her own, regarding the recent phone call he had with Matt Millen:
Lately, my heart has been so heavy. It is very hard to watch the daily toll this has taken on Brett... First and foremost, I am his defender when people tear him down. Thus, each word and accusation weigh down on me like a ton of bricks, because I know the truth behind the rumors. My first instinct is to fight for him—for his character, his peace and his reputation. At the end of the day, I am not just Brett’s wife, I am his biggest fan.
The rest of this surprisingly poorly-written "please stop being mean to my husband" rant can be found here. I'd rip on this situation more, but frankly, I think I've already crossed the asshole line. That, and I could only imagine what it would be like to have a woman defend me like that.
And unfortunately, Brett has yet to contribute to the blog.
