  • Is Brett Favre washed up?

    Favre: 5 TD, 7 INT, 72.7 rating,

    Green Bay: 0-3

    I think he's done. I'm sending a sympathy card to John Madden.

      Uhhh........get him an experienced offensive line and some more experienced receivers (exception to Driver) that don't get taken off their routes so easy........

      I will admit that Brett's numbers have been short of spectacular, but I think the fact that a Super Bowl isn't directly on the horizon will make him retire......there isn't any upsides to the team right now based on their current personnel.......in addition, their defense has in no way improved from last years........it will be a long year IMO......

        He wasn't all the great last year though, at least not by his own standards. Sort of like Marshall Faulk.

          Don't worry - I'm SURE he'll find a way to own the Bears this year.

          He always does.

            Actually, if not for Favre (and Griese), the Bucs would've won by 20.
            But wait. There is something that can be done afterall. My good friend Angelo is a cop in the Tampa/Clearwater area. Since I kept all of the files from the access logs when I had the power to see them, guess what, I have everyone's IP addresses. Hmm..what can I do w/ those??

              He still throws way too many "What the Hell?" passes into triple coverage.

              The media's slurping of Favre is tiredsome and unexcellent.
              His mind is not for rent, to any god or government.

                That's how I see it too. He still has a greta arm, but his decision making has been abysmal the last few years. He makes as many "Oh crap" throws now as he does "Holy shit" throws.

                  I think he actually makes more "Oh crap throws" than good throws.

                  And while it's nice to see him celebrate a TD (I think he's one of the good guys) as often as not he looks disinterested and preoccupied.

                  I think he retires at season's end.

                    Washed up? No.

                    Deteriorating? Yes.

                    On a sucky team? Absolutely.

                      I've been a Packer die-hard forever. He's pretty close to being washed up, but if he played on a decent team, and had more time to throw, he'd be above average. He has always been blessed with a very good offensive line. I'll never understand why they let Wahle and Rivera go...because they sure didn't seem to pick up anything good with the money saved.

                          Who are the elite QBs now?

                          I was thinking Bulger would step into the hole that Favre would leave, but it looks like Carson Palmer has done that.

                            If he had a better offensive line and better support from the WR's and RB's, he'd be doing way better than he is now. He used to throw up a lot of the "holy shit" passes and they'd find a target, but not so far this season. I'm with Hanke too that I don't think he'll quit mid-season, that's just not like him. He's tough and will keep plugging away. I see him retiring after this year though.

                              This just hasn't been a this year thing though. It's been happening a lot over the last couple of years, but he's been bailed out by the better talent around him. I don't think he was nearly as good the last 2 or 3 years as many in the media were portraying. I think it's consistency. He'd have a great game, followed by a clunker or 2, then another great one.
