…and convince him that it is time to go home, why won’t you just go home Brett? This has to be Brett Favre’s worst season ever, period. It’s not just the on the field struggles, the broken ankle, the 3-7 record, and the stimulation of the coaching change. It’s not just coming back for one final run to the super bowl and having those hopes shattered. It’s the charade that was put on prior to the season, the 1 million dollars earned every game, the off the field picture scandal, and the whole saga that we have endured all over the sports media landscape all season long. It just seems like it might be time to go home, spend some time with the family and wife, fixing things, and maybe make an occasional appearance in a wrangler jeans commercial. It makes me kind of sad, even as a Redskin’s fan, to have to watch the struggles this year. Sure there are occasional moments, but so many struggles, so many missteps, so many things to fix off the football field. It’s time for the infamous streak to end Brett and the Redskins might be the perfect team to do it.
I don’t want to see Brett Favre get seriously injured, he’s been through enough, he’s a warrior and we’ve seen maybe the best example of that this season. He is not a quitter, and will never be, but sometimes when it’s over, it’s over, and with a big win by the skins, or a big hit, the failed final attempt at un-retirement should finally come to a close. Big hitters, Landry and Rogers might be out, but the redskins as a collective have been slowing marquee players all season. It’s time for the Redskins to thank the fans for all of our support by finally coming out and playing a game that doesn’t have us holding our breath down to the final seconds and for Brett Favre to thank the Redskins players for being so generous as to help him smoothly transition into his life after football by making this game a miserable experience.
Happy Thanksgiving, Go Skins!
