Now that Green Bay is Farve-less and irrelevant again, there’s really no reason the Giants can’t be on TV every single week next year. Thanks to Favre, the Giants were able to win the NFC Championship Game at Lambeau Field to win the Super Bowl, meaning the networks will actually have a valid reason why the Giants are on TV in Southern California every single week.
Favre’s inability to win the big one opened the door for Eli Messiah to join the list of non-deserving, one-win Super Bowl winners like Jeff Hostetler, Trent Dilfer, Favre and Brad Johnson. Quite an impressive fraternity.
The fitting thing is, the lasting image of Brett Favre will be of him throwing the crippling interception in the NFC Championship Game. A nice tribute to the all-time interceptions leader.
To me, Favre was like the George W. Bush of quarterbacks – an affable, former drug addict who you wouldn’t trust to run your team (or country).
