Read this piece from the Chicago Tribune’s David Haugh (how would you pronounce this last name…whenever I run into a last name I can’t pronounce that starts with “H”, I think of Dr. Hoffofferererer from the Man with Two Brains – an underrated comedy). He states that the Bears should do anything they can to land Brett Favre. He gets a fascinating quote from Robbie Gould who has no problem stating that having Favre would make the team a lot better. Even though we all know he’s right, interesting public, back-handed crack at their present QBs (again I know they both suck, but interesting).
But Haugh seems very set on his opinion that Ted Thompson and the Packers are crazy for letting Favre go. Sometimes I think as fans we’ve all gotten so close to this Favre situation, reading voraciously to make sure we have our details, chronology and rumors currrent, that we sort of lose the ability to strip away all the layers and examine the basic question: who is the better QB, Rodgers or Favre. This guy’s opinion is firm – obviously Favre and he thinks the Packers are nuts for not welcoming him back. Though I no longer believe Favre is an innocent victim here and I can follow the logic of the organization a lot better as details have emerged, it’s funny how this guy’s article has set me back again to thinking about how good Favre was last year and really, how unfortunate this whole situation is.
