    Brett Favre has never known how to let - 12.13.10 - SI Vault


    Very interesting read..

    For years I told "Brett fans" Rodgers was misquoted in his SI article,get on board or shut up..No one believed me

    The 1st post about this article on Bretts site.. Bretts mom has to have been misquoted

    Anyways hypocrites or not this is a good read

    Hate it that his career now, down to the end coming. Sadly, has to end on a painful note. Really hate it for him, and especially his family!

    He earned it.. Every ache and pain that he has and his family has.. He has no one to blame but himself. I cant feel pity or sorrow for him. If he had retired from The Packers when all the world sent him love and admiration, even his opponents, then he never would have gotten all the injuries and scandals in these past 3 seasons.. It all came down to him and his vanity.

    Fascinating article. Very well written, very informative. His family certainly seems to think it's finally done, and for whatever reason I absolutely believe them. I think this is it for him.

    That damn article did get me to feel bad for him somehow. I don't really get how that happened, but it did.

    I am sure he is done...He has never said that during a season before..

    I do feel sorry for him..For most part on the surface he is a very good guy....I just dont agree with some of the things he lied about or twisted around..

    I truthfully cant stand the double standards that his people do or his fans do on his forum..I.E Rodgers wasnt misquoted in an SI article 3 years ago

    But Bretts mom is mis quoted in a SI article

    just read it. About a year and a half ago I realized if he father was still alive this would have never happened. This just confirms it. I have to catch myself when reading that, I start to think back to the good ol days with brett, then I think of him in a Vikings jersey and how he gave away our offense to the Lions and I snap back to reality. He made his bed, I am glad to see him sleep in it.

    How unfulfilling would this season have felt for us fans if brett didnt come back? It would have really bothered me if we would have never beaten Brett.
