Brett, I think it’s time…

Posted: October 25, 2010 in Uncategorized

I think it’s time to call it a career.

If ever there was a perfect time to hang up the cleats, it’s now. I know its midway through the season, and I know you still think you can lead the Vikings to the Super Bowl, but like it or not, it’s time.

After a tough loss to the Packers on Sunday night, the Vikings moved to 2-4 on the season. Even after making a blockbuster trade to acquire superstar receiver Randy Moss, the Vikings are still struggling. Favre played very poor against his old team, as he threw three interceptions, and clumsily fell down on the last play, only to get up and throw an incomplete pass. To make matters even worse, Favre suffered an injured ankle that leaves his status for next week uncertain.

Reports say it is a fractured ankle, and Favre has yet to say if he will play next week.

I’ll tell you what to do, Brett. Retire. Call it quits. Swallow some pride and save your body some years, I mean you want to be able to walk normally when you’re older, right? If you keeping throwing your 41-year-old brittle body into the line of fire, things aren’t going to go well for you in the future. If you’re not careful, you might be rocking some Forrest Gump knee braces a few years down the road.

Over the past few years, Favre has brought so much drama to the NFL. From fake retirements to a sexting scandal, he has lost the respect of thousands of fans with his antics. Its tough for me to even write this, considering I used to love Brett Favre. Lately, however, I can’t help but despise his actions.

Although I am very critical of the Favre-of-late, one thing I will never lose is my respect for him. His current NFL record of 291 consecutive starts, although likely to come to an end this Sunday, is absolutely incredible, no matter what position he plays. I just think it is in his best interest to call it a career. Not only is it best for him, but it will also be the best for the Vikings.

If one thing is certain, it is that no one in the world knows what Brett Favre will do. He has had so many shocking decisions over the years, and he probably doesn’t even know what he’s going to do.

All we can do now is wait and see. Good luck, Brett. Hopefully you make the right decision.

    Even though I am not a football fanatic, I loved this blog. It’s very funny and the background setting helps to lure in readers. Keep it upppp!

    Oh I agree. I don’t watch, or even understand football really, but even I know that he’s been around for a long time and he seems to constantly just be in and out of the football world and I’ll bet people are fed up with his shenanigans. Give it up, Favre.

    I like the way you incorporate comedic elements within your posts. I like the Forest Gump reference as well-nice touch. I don’t really like to read Sports Features, but yours was a really fun read. You presented the facts, while also incorporating your own personality into it. Great job! Keep up the good work!
