Why your team won't win the Super Bowl:
Players chasing individual career marks are always a distraction to a team. And it appears that Brett Favre is going to be the distraction to the Packers. It is clear that Favre is intent on becoming the all-time interception leader, much to the detriment to the Packers. Favre tossed two interceptions against the Bears in the home-opener to put his magic number at 20 for tying George Blanda's all-time mark. (You have to figure that Blanda is spinning in his grave right now.)
The best bet for the Packers would be for Favre to break the record in the next couple of games (something that he has shown that he can do), and then put it behind him. Otherise the Packers are going to become a media circus until that record is set.
That or until the next Favre tragedy occurs. It seems like Favre’s life is like a Rocky movie where somebody seems to die or get sick with every sequel. The Packers have no chance until all of that get settled.
