Brett Favre….

The character “Brent Farve” as played by Brett Favre. It was a wonderful image that was crafted for him. Fairy tale like. Folk hero like. The champion of people that work hard, as American as a Ford pickup truck and Wranger jeans. Loves hard work and enjoys life like people reminisce they were as a child.

“Brent Farve” was no more real than Michael Corleone. Brett Favre was a natural for the role of “Brent Farve”, much like Al Pacino was for Michael. Al plays a very convincing gangster, and has done so many times, it is a natural role for him. Yet Al is not a gangster, he is nothing like that off the screen. Brett Favre is not “Brent Farve”, and never has been, he was a fictional character created by Brett, Bus, the media, fans, etc…

The problem is how the fairy tale ended. While still in progress the fairy tale was convincing. Over the years it got more and more convincing, the snowball turned into an unstoppable avalanche.

The best ending of course is the typical fairy tale ending, and many people over the years believed that is how it would end. Going out an top and retiring into the sunset like a hero. Like Elway did. “Brent Farve” got close, though it ended on sad note, much like the ending of “the Longest Yard”, so close yet so far.

When he retired, the fairy tale ended. The story ending was a tragedy. Fairy tales don’t have sequels. While some fans were still believers in the fairy tale ending, believing there to be an extra chapter, most fans closed the book and accepted that the fairy tale was over.

The hero, “Brent Farve”, no longer exists. He retired in March of 2008. The man who returned to the NFL is Brett Favre the QB, no longer playing “Brent Farve”. Even if he is trying to, that book is closed, he cannot recreate that character. (more…)

Was Vick A Bad Quarterback?

August 8, 2009

With a lot of discussion going on in Packerland regarding Michael Vick, from fans, to media, to front office, to the players, in lieu of adding my opinions to the discussion here (which I am strongly in favor of, you can visit me at the message boards linked below to to discuss), instead I will look at the issue of whether or not Vick was good on the field.

Let me reiterate, on the field.  I am not interested in his work habits, locker room appeal, leadership, off the field activities, here, that is beyond the scope and for a different discussion, I am simply interested in the time between when he breaks the huddle, to the time that the play is whistled dead.  Could he get it done?  At least did he get it done when he played formerly?

I’ve been found.

Just when you thought that Waldo would forever stay hidden.  Kevin Seifert of ESPN.com found me.

Not just in title, he refers to some of my posts on Footballs Future regarding the late season fade of Brett Favre and the fact that last year was the rule, not the excpetion.
