Back when he was in Green Bay, a lot of NFL fans got angry with Brett Favre because of the constant retirement speculation following him. This anger was misplaced. Take his response to a media question today.
"I don't see how anyone, aside from you guys, can focus on next year when what we're trying to do right now is win and do something this year," Favre told reporters Wednesday. "I'm 39 years old. I know the better days are behind me, for the most part. There won't be 16 more years or 17 more years. I'm trying to enjoy and help this team win now."
The topic of conversation is apparently 2009, not the first place showdown between the Titans and the Jets this weekend. This is reporting at its finest.
