Brett Favre: We Are Officially Over It

This is the first in an ongoing series of things we’re over. Why are we over them? Because they’re ugly, they’re embarassing, they’re out of context, or they’re all around offensive. Enjoy.

Despite the fact that should a certain member’s girlfriend ever find this point it could be grounds for termination, we are officially over Brett Favre. It all started with a heartfelt, teary-eyed retirement speech shortly after the Giants (who had defeated the Packers in a crushing, last minute win in the division championships) won their surpirse victory over the Patriots. I don’t care who you are, everyone has to feel for a Super Bowl-winning Old Yeller getting put out to pasture.

Then the rumors started… but these were expected, right? Nothing was going on in the NFL and a little old fashioned rumor mongering about a great-but-now-”retired” quarterback makes for good news when nothing is going on and the NBA playoffs haven’t started yet. In recent weeks you can’t turn on ESPN without coming across another ridiculous story about whether or not Favre would show up to training camp or what his value as an old man is on the market.

We’re over it. Brett – you’re a fantastic Hall of Fame quarterback with great fantasy stats. Let it be. Please stop playing football while you’re ahead, you have as much dignity as anyone from Mississippi can have, and you ended with a remarkable season that went further than anyone could have imagines.
