Troy Aikman Is Just As Sick Of Brett Favre As You Are

Wednesday, August 06, 2008


Troy Aikman owns a lifetime record of 9-1 against the Packers, but apparently he hasn't hammered Brett Favre over his career. The ex-QB and FOX analyst was on the 2 Live Stews radio show today to talk all things NFL, but he had some interesting things to say about Aaron Rodgers and the flip-flopping Brett Favre....

"This has been going on for over a decade. Going into '96, the Super Bowl that he won. He talked about it prior to that game that if he won that Super Bowl he may in fact retire. And since that time it's been twelve years now that we've talking about whether or not Brett's going to retire.

He [Aaron Rodgers] has been there all of season, they drafted him in the first round, they told him that he was going to be a starter this year. And I think you risk losing him for the rest of his career, however short that maybe with Packers, to get one more season out of Brett Favre. Do you go on to win the Super Bowl? Well maybe you do, but they could very easily go 4 and 12 as well."
Interesting take and pretty spot on. I definitely don't agree with the notion that Aaron Rodgers should be the starter, but I can't believe I forgot how long Favre has been contemplating leaving the game. I was in Highschool in 1996?! Good lord. Someone seriously needs to Nancy Kerrigan this guy so we can all move on....including him.

Aikman's right, they could be 4-12, we don't know. Favre made the same dumbass decisions last year that he had for the previous 5 years. The only difference was that last year the defense wasn't picking him off.

Of course they could be 4-12, or any terrible record, just like they were in the 2 years previous to last year.

I heard a great point that said Favre spent 8 solid weeks condition in the off season last year and came into camp in the best shape in memory...this year, he skipped that.

Favre is going to have a terrible year, and I hope to god he slinks off and is never heard from again.

Personally, I support Aaron Rodgers. How much more will the Packers have to take of Brett Favre pondering retirement? It's beginning to become a bane on the organization and it's time to move on.

And, it's time to move on from this story. Please, Green Bay, trade the man, make ESPN shut up for two minutes.

What better media market for Farvaro to bring his three-ring circus to than New York with the Jets...

Aikman is class and a winner (3 Super Bowl crowns) and Brett Favre is trash, a glory hound, and a loser (a Super Bowl victory over the Pats because my Broncos choked that year against the Jags). Whenever Aikman says anything remotely "controversial," it's noteworthy because most of the time he just does a nice job as a FOX analyst and goes about his business. How far has Favre gone if Aikman's calling him out?
