Poor old [intlink id=”41″ type=”category”]Brett Favre[/intlink], rotting away in retirement. What’s an old gunslinger to do?
Who knows, but playing football doesn’t appear to be in the cards for the former [intlink id=”35″ type=”category”]Minnesota Vikings[/intlink] and Green Bay Packers signal caller.
Favre says he no longer has the motivation to play and the only reason he could find motivation to come back is because everyone hates him.
Great reasoning, Brett. Everyone hates me. Let’s make them hate me more by coming back again! I’ll show them!
“I could easily talk myself into that chip on my shoulder like, ‘Hey everybody hates you . . . .’ and I could motivate myself,” Favre said. He then said that, now that he’s older, he simply doesn’t have the fire to do what needs to be done. “It’s that edge that makes the great players great,” Favre said.
So, while we may be able to finally close the door on Brett Favre’s career, just remember one thing. If Brett Favre wanted to come back and play again, Brett Favre could come back and play again, goddamit!
In fact, by his reasoning, when he comes back to spite us for our hatred of him and we grow to hate him even more, it will just drive him to play longer.
He’ll thereby become the only player in NFL history fueled entirely by hatred and be able to play until he dies. When they finally scrape his rotting carcass off the field and throw him in a dirt hole, the concrete marker above him will read: Brett Favre — would have been nothing if it weren’t for spite and revenge.
Oh, I forgot. He just loves to the play the game!
That’s all. Right, Jon Gruden?
