Brett Favre is a Laughingstock

In Uncategorized on August 20, 2009 at 1:12 am

The inevitable has finally come to pass:

Brett Favre is the quarterback of the Minnesota Vikings.

I’ve stayed silent thus far on the Brett Favre Fiasco and I’ve done so for a number of reasons.

1) There’s already quite enough Brett Favre coverage to go around.

2) What am I going to say that hasn’t been said already?

and 3) I don’t really care that much about an aging, overrated quarterback.

But I just can’t resist any longer. Here it goes:

Brett Favre simply isn’t that good. He never was, and he certainly isn’t now. The guy has been massaged for years by a media market infatuated with his overblown Regular Guy image – an image predicated largely on blue jeans and gunslinging (gunslinging, of course, sport-speak for throwing costly interceptions). The fact is this: Brett Favre is an old, tired, training-camp-avoiding quarterback who’s uselessness is outweighed only by his indecisiveness.

At least when Roger Clemens pulled this stunt he was still good. Brett Favre is just a joke, and that’s that.
