Brett Favre screws everything up

Posted on: August 7, 2008 4:58 pm

Everywhere he goes, Brett Favre ruins things for someone else. He's like a cockroach walking across toast. That toast is ruined.

So is Chad Pennington, who was released today because of Favre's presence with the Jets. Pennington joins a list of quarterbacks who have been ensnared by Favre's drama:

Minnesota's Tarvaris Jackson, who has to wonder how much his team really believes in him after talking with Favre -- but not tampering with him ... suuuuure -- this offseason.

Tampa Bay's Jeff Garcia, who also knows his team was flirting with Favre.

Green Bay's Aaron Rodgers, who endured a month of utter misery while waiting for the Favre story to be resolved.

The Green Bay assistant coach who was sold out by Favre. The Green Bay coach and GM who were roasted by the Favre-friendly portion of the Packers' fan base. The Jets, for giving up a draft pick for a QB who might be washed up. Greta Van Susteren, whose journalistic chops took a hit with her ridiculous interview with Favre. And ESPN, which whiffed more than Adam Dunn on the story.

And the kicker is, I bet Favre sucks this season. All this misery he has spread, and he'll absolutely suck in New York.

Brett Favre screws everything up

I have waited a few months to respond to your prediction. Admittingly, I acted cowardly. Perhaps, I was being optimistic. Ultimatley, it looks like you are right...again.( see your insight on Vince Young)  Sometimes it is hard to spot "the Favre " amongst the "hype". Go Aaron, for all our sakes!

Agreed with the last comment.  Pennington?  Are you serious, or just stoned.  No disrespect to him, but the guy is weak.  When was the last time the dude even made it through an entire season.  Then you look at a guy like Farve.  When was the last time this guy was hurt??  Doyel, how can you be such an idiot?  The guy is a winner.  Only a few QB's are in the NFL.  You might want to stop hating, and give a little respect, where respect is due.  You might want to retake Journalism 101 at the crappy community college you came from.

how do people like you get to write this stuff.when you stink at it. you have no facts just hating on Favre. because the facts are Favre is the best and those other QBs are just average. last time i looked best was better than average.maybe if these other QBs played hard and didn,t get hurt so much there jobs would not be taken. Pennington stinks. he does not desevre to start. he never did. People like you who write  for sport pages, write on there feeling towards a player not the facts. this is why you stink at this.

Brett Favre screws everything up

what are you talking about first of all. FaVRe  has played in Green bay for his whole career. accept for the fact he was drafted by another team. THERE IS A REASON TEAMS WANT FAVRE. HE IS THE BEST QB EVER. TALKING ABOUT PEOPLE  screwing everything up. look at Pennington. Pennington can,t put together 3 good seasons.  Farve put together 3 or more great seasons in a row. People like you said the same thing afther Packers had that bad season 2 years ago. Look what Favre did last year. The first 6 games last year Packers running was not good. Farve keep that team alive the first 6 games. Farve has keep the Packers alive for years now. YOU ARE AN IDIOT THINKING FAVRE might be washed up. Don,t forget all yhe lies Packers told the media and Favre. one day packers tell Brett he is welcomed back. then packers say if you came back your back up.then they say Favre can competite for fisrt string. then 2 days later he is traded. Aaron Rodgers was hurt for almost 6 weeks in 2006. Rodgers was hurt 2 or 3 weeks last year. The guy gets hurt as a back up. Packer fans were spoiled with Favre.The guy plays hurt and doesn,t miss games. every QB you named Garcia, Pennington, Jackson, and Rodgers all get hurt alot. Three of them you named should be back up QB . Packers team were talking to this teams. Favre talked to the Viking only first. the Packers made first contact with the other teams. so blame them and the other teams for making there QBs  go there this. Every player has the right to come back out of retirement to play again. maybe if these ohter QBs played like Favre and had heart like Favre there jobs would not be threated by Favre.  Plus the Media blows this story up like they do with them all. and talking about sold out . the packers sold out Favre. take away BRETT FAVRE  the last 14 years from Green Bay. they would of never won a super bowl, let alone make to 2 of them. never been to the playoffs almost ever year. the Packers of old were great, but the packers of the 1980 stunk. they stunk until they got Favre. SO SHOW SOME REPECT TO THE BEST QB EVER. PLUS I am not a packers fan or a favre fan, but you have to repect him and admire him for what he has done for football. Favre made it a tougher game.

The only way Doyel knows how to write a blog is by bashing on somebody else.  His articles usually consist of stupid phrases like, "cockroaches on toast," or "dog wagging Paterno's tail." 

Doyel, you truly are a class act.....

Mr. Doyel,

You are clearly an idiot.  I saw you on CNN this morning, you piece of human garbage.  The Pack wanted him to retire, it is 100% their fault, just listen to what the incomparable Jerry Rice had to say about it, the same thing happened to him in San Fran.  But you probably think Jerry Rice is no good either, if your prior comments are any indication of your low level of intelligence.  Aaron Rodgers and Jeff Garcia and Chad Pennington control their own destiny, and for you to imply that Brett has ruined their life is an insult to them, I hope you meet them one day and they slap you in the face or step on you, you cockroach.  By the way, it sure is easy for you to critize Brett when you must suck so bad you cannot even play football yourself.  No matter how bad or good Favre does this season, it is his right to come back.  And the Packers organization is primarily the one to blame.  Luckily for you we live in a country where free speech is allowed, no matter how ignorant you are.  But I suggest nansy pansies like you move to another country.

Doyle's -

Sorry dude, but you're an idiot!  Pennington, really?  That's who you expect to take you to the Superbowl?  Come on.  Favre is a top-5 QB, and understands football with his 17 years of experience.  The Jets have receivers that can break away for the big score, anf Favre can get it to them.  Pennington is a limp-wristed, noodle arm havin' pu$$y, who couldn't get the ball further than 40-yards w/o a pick.  This is the best thing to happen to the Jets, in A LONG TIME.  Plus, with a solid O-Line to protect him, and now having upgraded their running game.  Look for the Jets to go deep...and thank your lucky stars that Favre will put this team back on the map.

Brett Favre screws everything up

You act like Brett Favre brainwashed a bunch of mentally retarded folks to start committing crimes all over the city.  He went back and forth over retirement.

There's no need to go around insulting the mentally retarded like that; they didn't ask to be born retarded.  Besides, the politically correct term these days is "Packers Fans" or "Jets Management".

Brett Favre has a right to retire and unretire any time he wants to, but he has no right to think he's in a position to call the shots in this situation.  Running a football team is big business, and there are trade, free agency and draft decisions to be made.  Favre strung the Packers along long enough last year with the "will he or won't he?" game, so it's hard to blame the franchise for not wanting a repeat of that fiasco this year.  It's hard to make informed personnel decisions when a potentially big chunk of salary cap space is being held hostage by a guy who acts as indecisive as a 15 year old Wisconsin girl on a Friday night after three beers.

I never thought I'd agree with Gregg Doyel or the Green Bay Packers on anything -- let alone agree with both of 'em at the same time -- so in that sense Brett did pull one more miracle out of the hat.  Guess that leaves one less for the field.

Plus he cried at his retirement press conference.  When you cry at your retirement press conference it is supposed to be all over.  Coming back is like having grandma rise from her coffin after you divied up her estate.  You aint exactly rejoicing at her resurrection, and it is disturbing as hell.
