Fran Tarkenton blasts Brett Favre
Our great Vikings quarterback wants the team to steer clear of Favre. So he went on 790 the Zone in Atlanta to air his position. And wham, Old Tark is back in the news. To Tark, it's really simple: Favre ain't that good a quarterback.
"I think he has been a great flamboyant quarterback, but he has made more stupid plays than any great quarterback that I've ever seen. Look at his final game in a Packers uniform. He blew that game against the Giants. He's playing against Eli Manning, I love Eli Manning, but he's still not a great quarterback. He's not Peyton yet, or Tom Brady. He's just a guy. And they're (Packers) are playing at home, and they're in a tight situation, they went to overtime and he (Favre) throws the interception that allows them (the Giants) to come back and win the game. He has done that and driven his coaches crazy all of his career."
Why Favre is the only thing worth talking about during the off-season? Does the NFL really suck that bad? Will he come back or won't he? If that is the best conversation... then your league is in some serious trouble.
Dude. Is. Old. Can't. Throw. Send him to pasture.
