All along I have worried that once we signed Favre he would bring with him the baggage from the Jets about not being a team guy. I was reluctantly resigned to having him don Purple this year but thought, by all means, if he did he would come back during training camp to show this team that he's ready to be a committed locker room guy. We already know he has world class calibre. But, now, WTF? Seriously? There will be no way for him to escape the perception (in the locker room, of all places!) that this is a guy who felt he didn't have to go through the trenches with his teammates. I've always tried to avoid thinking in prima dona terms about Favre, believing he did a relatively good job of staying out of the media fray this year, despite the amount of attention he received. But, now, I don't believe there's any other excuse I will believe. It wasn't his shoulder, we know. And, now, indeed, it probably wasn't his knees or ankles. Brett Favre waited until now to make his decision so that he didn't have to do what was expected of every other player on the team besides him, to attend training camp. I'm not happy at all with this and believe that we should not accept this as an organization--even if he gives us a better chance to win (hypothetically). This crap (I would bet) has done real damage to our solidarity.
