Willie Mays on the Mets
Keith Hernandez on the Indians
Joe Namath on the Rams
Steve Carlton on the Indians/Twins/White Sox
Jerry Rice on the Seahawks (bet you forgot that one)
And now…..Brett Favre on the Jets
Favre joins a list of once good or great players that ended their career with the wrong team, in a bad way… all because their ego was too big.
Does it diminish their achievements? Not at all. But it does stain the memory we have of their career.
Who else would you add to this list?
Looks like playing for the Jets finally made Favre realize his career was over.
According to ESPN Favre has told his agent to let the Jets know he is retiring…
It’s for good this time
Until August when he will want to play one last time for a winner
I actually do believe he is done. Playing for the Jets (just like rooting for them) can suck the life out of you.
So what did the Jets get for one year of Favre
- Another typical Jets collapse
- A fired coach
- An apparently dysfunctional locker room
- An opponent who won 1 game last year winning the division with their old QB
- No clear QB for next season
Yeah – that was really worth it
