he's basically saying Ted fired Sherman to get rid of Favre. pretty short-sighted, even for a sports journalist. Favre leaving will be a by-product of Sherman's firing, but not the explicitly desired result of it! thats pretty idiotic.
i do get the impression that TT has no qualms about (or maybe even prefers) dealing with a Favre-less Packers, so i don't think he's completely off base in his article. what i do think is that TT came in here with a partially made agenda (duh) and after observing Sherman's coaching style on the job for a couple months he decidied the marriage wouldn't work.
i just hope this guy has something resembling a plan for this team...he strikes me as the type that does.
