Brett Favre will never play quarterback in the NFL again. Have you heard this before? Brett Favre is like that cold you can never get rid of. He just hangs on refusing to let go. Finally, the end may be here. In 2010 Brett Favre broke down both mentally and physically, the tide has turned in the Soap Opera we call Brett Favre. It is time for you to take your guns and put them back into their proverbial holsters forever.
Not only did Brett Favre stink on the field for the Minnesota Vikings in 2010, ending his streak of starting 297 games in a row, he became the laughing stock of the NFL. Brett Favre threw 11 TD’s and 19 interceptions in 2010. He just couldn’t do it on the field anymore. With the new rising star quarterbacks in Josh Freeman, Matthew Stafford and Sam Bradford the NFL no longer needs the aging gunslinger. Don’t forget the unwanted passes he threw to Jen Sterger when he played for the Jets. He sexted her, sent pictures of his junk and left her leading voice messages. To make matters worse, there are two more women who worked for the Jets that claim to have received lewd texts/sexts from Brett Favre.
Roger Goodell and the NFL fined Brett Favre $500,000 in December for not being candid in an investigation into allegations that he send lewd text messages and photos (of his junk) to a Jets employee, Jen Sterger. Now, two message therapists are suing Brett Favre complaining about suggestive texts/sexts messages he sent to them. Christina Scavo and Shannon O’Toole sued Brett Favre on Monday in a Manhattan court. One wonders how much of the 16 million dollars Favre got from the Minnesota Vikings to play horrible football will go to these women. For all intents and purposes, Brett Favre is done in the NFL.
Sure you may see the Brett Favre circus on ESPN all through the offseason months again in 2011. ESPN just cannot help themselves when it comes to Soap Operas like the one we have in Brett Favre. Brett Favre is news. He is one of the best all-time NFL quarterbacks. The problem is Brett Favre is no longer an NFL caliber quarterback. His arm/shoulder is still messes up, he is old and he ended his season with a concussion. What the aged quarterback needs to worry about now is his wife and his family.
Don’t you worry; Brett Favre will never play quarterback in the NFL again. Roger Goodell will make sure this happens. Brett Favre’s scandal is growing legs and the NFL wants nothing to do with it. Roger Goodell fined Brett Favre not only as a slap on the wrist, but as a warning. Roger Goodell will not let Brett Favre or any NFL player smear the NFL with their personal scandals. The NFL is bigger than Brett Favre and will go on as the most exciting sport in person and on television. Goodbye and good luck Brett Favre, you finally outstayed your welcome in the NFL. It’s time to put those guns away for good.
