“I think it’s despicable. What he put the Packers through last year was not good. Here’s an organization that was loyal to him for 17, 18 years, provided stability of organization, provided players. It just wasn’t about Brett Favre. But, you know, in this day and time, we have glorified the Brett Favre’s of the world so much, they think it’s about them. He goes to New York and bombs. He’s 39 years old. How would you like Ray Nitschke playing in his last year for the Vikings, or how ’bout I retire, and go play for the Packers? I kind of hope it happens, so he can fail.”
But wait, there’s more!
“It’s about team. It’s not about Brett Favre. So he goes and runs up to the Jets, doesn’t even dress in the locker room with the players, has a separate facility…it’s all about him, and it’s supposed to be all about your team.”
Tarkenton then proceeds to list a lot of big games that Favre blew that I’d rather not remember. This is only a small sampling of the rant. To listen to the audio of the whole Favre segment, click here.
