After throwing a late interception (which was returned for a Touchdown) to blow the game for the Vikings last night against the Jets in New York, many sports writers, bloggers and experts came out saying today that Favre should retire immediately and let someone like Tavaris Jackson take over as the Vikings quarterback.
Let me start off by saying that I am probably a better NFL Quarterback than Tavaris Jackson, and I am available for the rest of the season, Minnesota. Second, Bret Favre is still one of the top 5 quarterbacks in the league, and you are just going to have to take the good with the bad. He has thrown INT's his entire career, and that wasn't going to change, just because he put on some purple.
Bret Favre still put up 3 Touchdowns against one of the best defenses in the NFL, all in the second half, through rain and hail. Bret Favre still has another 20 or so games in the tank, and the window for a Vikings title run is closing. Don't slam the door prematurely with Tavaris Jackson.
Oh, and concerning those nude pictures Favre sent of himself to a female team representative while on the Jets, if she didn't complain or find it offensive (which all reports currently say she didn't), then I don't either. Favre's biggest problem out of this entire thing shouldn't be a looming suspension or media ridicule, it should be having to explain this to his wife. Good luck, buddy.
