Crackback Brett, Narcissist

Pardon me while I depart from the Kansas City Chiefs for a bit. Their situation is so dismal, it has put me into a football depression. More on that later.

So, on to more pressing issues, like the continuing saga of Brett Favre, the NFL’s poster child of narcissism.

Not only is George W. Favre a liar when it comes to his football career, he’s a dirty player.

His crackback block last night on Houston Texans safety Eugene Wilson was illegal, dirty, stupid, unmindful, unnecessary — and typical Brett Favre. He injured Wilson and potentially could have ended Wilson’s career — over a stupid “Wildcat” Vikings play in a meaningless pre-season game.

It’s all about him. It’s all about Brett. Brett now believes all the beatification that John Madden and others have foisted upon him. Brett can do no wrong.

Brett Favre, like a lot of outstanding athletes I’ve met, is not necessarily an outstanding person. The same traits that make him a fierce competitor make him a lousy human being. Winning at all costs sometimes leads to taking out an opponent’s knees for no good reason.

Last night’s game against the Houston Texans was just another example of George W. Favre’s rampant narcissism.

Brett, you stayed on two years too long. You are ruining not just your legacy but your myth.

    Of all the things he’s been accused of, and probably is, I don’t think “dirty” was ever a mantra surrounding him. But at a time when his popularity is rightfully at a nadir, everything he does is suspect.

    Almost like George W.!

    yeah, it was a dumb play. then again, i can’t remember the last time favre was asked to block anyone. then again, i tried not to watch too much favre in the past. yuck. now, i’m kinda stuck with him.

    Give Favre and me a break!
    He is NOT a dirty player and never has been!
    He made a mistake and said he was sorry!
    The Vikes did NOT sign him to block!
    Get over it and write about something important and informative for a change!

    The blame for Favre’s block should rest squarely on the coaches who put their 40 year old “missing piece” of their Super Bowl puzzle out there to begin with. I’ll bet you can find a number of videos of Favre making the exact same block legally on a number of players . . . How you ask is that block legal??? The block is perfectly legal if Favre had started out in the backfield instead of split wide. Normally when he’s thrown the block in the past it’s after a reverse and his sprint out after the initial handoff put him outside . . . then as the reverse took shape and players start back in his direction the positions of players and the actual block look almost identical to what occurred Monday on Eugene Wilson. I’m sure it wasn’t dirty or intentional – he was doing what he knew. I’m also sure Favre wasn’t coached on the difference in the 13 days he was there. Bottom line – dumb call & coaching.

    Dave:

    Excellent points and analysis. But George W. Favre could have also just blocked high like a lineman or do what most QBs do–just act like he’s going to block then stepped aside. Not like this was the Super Bowl.

    if you are going to refer to Favre as GW, it would be good to know that now so I can skip over future articles because it’s rather lame.

    yeah, you should switch it up:

    adolf favre
    brett tse tung
    benito favre
    george h.w. favre
    brett ahmadinejad

    etc.
