Brett Favre wants to make one thing clear: He’s not a wishy-washy, high-maintenance, selfish diva who can’t make up his mind.
Of course Brett, talking to the New York Post like this is the best way to air your grievances. Let’s see, “wishy-washy.” I have to admit, you were bawling your eyes out at your retirement. You do cry a lot. That could rub people the wrong way with calling you “wishy-washy.” But then again, crocodile tears might not count against you. “High-maintenance.” Hmm. You know Brett, you did require quite a few press conferences in your days in Green Bay. But “high-maintenance” probably wasn’t that big of a deal. You’re the star, sure. I’ll pass on calling you “high maintenance.” “Selfish dive who can’t make up his mind.” Now this is where the real fun starts. I’m not sure you noticed this Brett, but you held the Packers in limbo for four consecutive offseasons. Should the Pack start tailoring the offense to Aaron Rodgers? Oh, wait, nevermind, he’s back. Sorry Aaron, wait again. Should I stay in Green Bay? Should I go? Where should I go? Yeah, Brett, you couldn’t make up your mind.
I’m not saying Ted Thompson and Mike McCarthy handled this thing 100% in the clean. But still, this bitching and moaning should stop. If I was Eric Mangini or some other dude in the New York Jets organization, I would put a gag order on Favre about questions regarding the Packers. It’s obvious Favre’s head and heart are in Green Bay, while his body and motor skills are in New York. If I were the Jets, I’d be worried that he can’t get over this because it could start distracting the team and impact his performance.
The Man-Genius needs to sit down Favre and tell him that he’s not in Kansas anymore.
