View Full Version : Favre Watch 2011

day after the football-following world warmed up to the notion that the Texans may be the best team in the AFC, the Texans’ ability to compete with AFC teams not in the AFC South took a major hit.

And now, with starting quarterback Matt Schaub expected to miss the rest of the year, the job falls to Matt Leinart, a former Heisman winner who hung around campus one year too long, lost his job to Kurt Warner, and then blew his chance to succeed the Hall of Famer by displaying a lack of accuracy that nearly got Larry Fitzgerald killed in the preseason.

Instead, it got Leinart run out of Arizona.

So why in the world would the Texans entrust the starting quarterback job to Leinart, whose coach at USC has shown no interest in a reunion, as they move toward their first playoff berth in franchise history?

Yes, I believe the Texans should call Brett Favre. Though he has become a caricature, the analysis is simple: Would you rather have Favre or Leinart running your offense?

I don’t expect the Texans to call Favre, and I have no idea whether Favre would be interested. But for the past few years there’s been a vague sense that Favre would consider capping his career with a Roger Clemens-style partial season with a contending team that has a clear need.

Many will dismiss the possibility because we’re all sick of Brett Favre the man. But there’s no denying that Brett Favre the quarterback can still bring it. He has shown that he can get up to speed quickly, and if the Broncos can re-tool their offense quickly to suit the unique skills of Tim Tebow, the Texans surely can come up with a playbook that consists of healthy doses of Arian Foster and Ben Tate on the ground, periodic Brett bombs to Andre Johnson, and a smattering of short throws to Owen Daniels and either Foster or Tate.

Coupled with one of the best defenses in the league, and in light of the fact that Houston is a fairly short flight from Hattiesburg, it makes sense.

It makes a lot more sense than trusting Matt Leinart.

Sure, Leinart may dub me a “hater” and use this criticism as motivation, but if the guy wasn’t able to motivate himself when the starting job in Arizona had been handed to him, the kick in the butt that comes from a external slight won’t matter.

And if, as expected, the Texans don’t call Favre, he can blame only himself for allowing issues other than his arm strength and experience and competitiveness influence teams to now avoid him. This could have been his best chance to write the perfect final chapter for his career, walking off into the sunset with a second Lombardi after beating the Packers and Aaron Rodgers.

But the short-term marriage simply isn’t going to happen.

Even though, given the Texans’ alternatives, it should.

I actually don't think Brett Favre will return this year. Surprisingly, I'm actually a little bit sad, gonna miss that guy.

Even when Favre is 80 years old I think we may still be having these threads. He really really should call it a career, but with him you just never know.

A picture is worth a thousand words sir.
I can't type that fast, hence the picture.

Don't get too excited about the Texans bringing in future Hall of Fame quarterback Brett Favre. Hours after backup Texans quarterback Matt Leinart went down with a season-ending injury, Sports Illustrated's Peter King discussed the Favre-to-Houston issue during NBC's Football Night in America and slammed the idea from both angles. King said general manager Rick Smith said the Texans wouldn't be interested. Smith told King: "I don't want to bring the circus to town."

The Texans are currently the AFC #1 seed. This is a rare opportunity for them!
Such a shame they've lost Matt.
And now the other Matt. Amazing bad luck. Cheap shot on Leinart yesterday, and the one to Schaub was such a fluke.
Is there another Matt they could throw in at QB?

I bet Farve still throws a great deep ball.
But also a great Int ball in the playoffs.

Anyone getting Favre right now , it'd be useless. I hate seeing this everywhere. Why would you bring in a washed up QB in the middle entering the last qtr of the season who doesn't know the playbook?

Just the rumor itself is annoying.

I wouldn't be able to cheer for Bears if Favre was their QB. I'd have to make Jacksonville my number one team until he retired/died. But that is not going to happen.

If Farve comes back to play for the Bears, and beats the Packers in the playoffs I think I'd be ok with him coming back just so I could see the riots that would take place after wards.
