The unbearable silliness of Favre fans

Rodgers played a great game against Arizona and ran up incredible statistics. He led his team. He made tough passes and spread the ball around. But he missed on the big one.

And just for the sake of getting under everybody's skin, I will maintain that Brett Favre doesn't miss that pass.

Well, well, well. After Favre's predicatable choke job, Some-Guy-Who-Writes-About-"Sports" is certainly going to man up and admit he was wrong, right? Of course not, because part of what makes Favre such an amazing hero is that he always chokes in key situations or something:

However, if you have an ounce of sense or compassion, you love him in spite of that throw. Or maybe even because of it. Heroes don't need to be perfect. In fact, we love them even more when they aren't.

Here's something we can all agree upon: if Favre continues to play another five seasons for the Vikings and continues to choke like that, all is forgiven.

(But he still should not have his number retired.)

  1. Agreed. I say give ole number 4 to a competent kicker to replace Mason Crosby.

  2. That's just unbelievable. Take off the Favre colored goggles!

    BTW, nice site. I found it off of the page you sponsored on PFR (I think it was Rodgers').

  3. Whatever. So the guy likes Favre. In the end, the price of tea in China is the same.
