      Sadly man, he did it to himself. Just look at the stories coming out of how he had his own lockeroom, and such. I remember reading that when he was with your team. And now the Jets players were basically saying he would change in another place, and hang out alone in an office in the training facility.

        I really dont care about Favre anymore...just came off as a dick this entire year. Probably should have just retired last year. Everyone used to love him...kind of tarnished that image a bit this year.

        Thanks BoneKrusher^

          He's a gun-slinger!!!



          Glad it is over. I've never seen someone be quite so rediculous with regards to a retirement. Can't wait to see what comes of it this time.

              I think he'll pull a Roger Clemens/PJ Brown/Peter Forsberg and come back half way through the year when the Jets are 5-3.

                  That's mainly because no one wanted him at the time. Different situation.

                      I completely agree, but this will over ride the fact that he has done a lot of great things in his career in some people's perception of him.

                      This was more towards the end, like the last 4 years. When TT came in, he built through the draft making the team considerably younger and I guess Favre felt a certain barrier with the younger guys when Aaron was brought in because everyone knew eventually Aaron would get a shot. Aaron, being a younger guy, connected better with the team. When he went to NYJ, everyone liked Chad in that locker room as told by Coles' reaction to the trade and release. Favre wanted to play and the Jets were the only other option viable for both him and the Packers organization. It doesn't surprise me that he doesn't want to go another season being underappreciated by his standards.

                      By the way, last offseason wasn't entirely Brett's fault. TT and Mike McCarthy told him that he and Aaron would compete for the starting job and obviously, with Favre being tired and coming off a dissapointing loss in the NFCCG, he wasn't too pleased with the situation and called it quits. Later in the offseason, he wanted the shot to compete with Rodgers and still wanted to play. TT and McCarthy had said that since he retired, Aaron was their guy and they couldnt break Aaron's confidence by letting Favre walk in and out whenever he wanted. The Packers handled the situation as well as it could have been handled. Its not the actual situation that made people mad, just the over coverage it got and the TV time.

                        In 5 years when he is inaugurated into the HOF, people won't be thinking about these past two years. He will be remembered as a great QB, it isn't going to tarnish his legacy. Did Jordan on the Wizards tarnish his legacy? No, and neither will Favre on the Jets, nor his will he or wont he retirement.

                          Yeah, he'll be remembered as a great QB but, the percentage of people that actually like Brett Favre, the person, will more than likely be lower. I dont think he tarnished his football legacy, I just think he screwed up his image in the eye of the fan.

                            Thanks 4 the memories!

                            One of the greatest to ever play the game, and the player that I have enjoyed watching the most. He is a great man, and one that the game will definitely miss.

                              Yeah, right.

                              Wait until a big name QB goes down in 2009, someone will give him a ring and without a whole season to play through, he'll answer.

                                How? How did he tarnish his image? By retiring and unretiring? Please. People do that all the time, Jordan, Clemens, all the greats that cant walk away from the game they love. If anything, Favre tarnished his image when he was addicted to pain killers. If that didnt do it for you then I question how much of the last two years lowered his personal image. I'm pretty sure that an addiction to pain killers will do more damage then getting extensive media coverage on a situation that many people still don't know what happened. All they know is that Favre retired and unretired and wanted to play for the Packers. He showed up at training camp for the fair chance he was promised, and was told to leave and a trade would be worked out. The media tarnished his image more than anything he has ever said or done.
