This is great for Brett.
I am pleased for Brett,
He may have finally understood, and is now learning and understanding, what the Packers have tried to "Teach and Preach" to him the last three years.
Brett did nothing "STUPID" tonight. He held back his idiotic tendencies and managed the game like a champion.
Brett's a hero tonight.
Randy Moss looked at him in the over-time coin toss and said.... "Throw an interception." Randy knows Brett. Brett loves Moss. What more motivation would Brett need?
What kills me is this... If Brett had the mental fortitude he had tonight, Last year. I think the Packers would have won the Super Bowl.
However, if the Packers let him come back.... He would have continued to play great but always play like an idiot when the game was on the line. The reason for that I feel was the the Packer Fans, The community, and the Packers organization have always sucked up to Brett.
Now he is in New York.... Now that he he has actually been under "Real Criticism, and been called out for his INT's and idiotic decisions on the field
Brett has been forced, for the first time to listen to a coach. For the first time he has actually been a Team Player. For the first time, this is not about HIM..... But the team.
This is good. This is Great.
I am very happy that the "OLD DOG CAN LEARN NEW TRICKS."
Well done tonight Brett. I only wish the Brett tonight was the Brett that played in the NFC Championship game last year.
For one, Brett has always been about the team and has always been a team player. He was always about winning football games no matter where he was. Yes, the Jets told him to tone down his interceptions, but Brett will always be Brett and thats why he is loved by many. And this OLD DOG can still play.... ARF ARF!! But I for one always knew that.
You have to remember this team was put together pretty fast, and took sometime for them to get some chemistry going. They are a work in progress, hopefully in the games to follow they will only get better.
Congrats Brett and the Jets team for a game well played. :)
HPG, don't waste your time, your words are falling on blind eyes.
Let's see, from what i remember from last January
R. martin dropping a sure TD pass from the guy you(RP)say has never been a team player.
I remember the running game being non-existant, and Brett Favre bringing The Pack back twice from behind with his passing game.
I remember Al Harris struggling the whole first half, trying to cover P. Burriss, and remember how the coaching staff decided they did not need to make any major adjustments, they would just live with the results.
Those are my memories from last January. I guess i was dreaming.
The biggest challenge with E-mails, or posts is that there is no tonality, enunciation, or body language in the cyber world of communication.
I reckon you both did not get what I was actually communicating. No fault of yours. Blame the computer, or blame me.
My point is this...
Brett played the best he has played. I was proud of him. He is no doubt one of the top 3 Q.B's to ever play the game.
But as one of the greatest, like many, they believe they can do anything. regardless of what a coach says to do, or a trainer says to do. That is what makes them great. That belief. If they did not have it, they would not be great.
However, toning it down, and doing what is best for the team makes one a team player.
Roberto Duran was one of the greatest fighters... His managers tried to tone him down, take away the stupid things he did in the ring when he got pissed off. He could not do it. He was Duran. He was what he was.
He would have been a better team player for his management team if he did not get pissed that Leonard would not go "Toe To Toe" and he would not have said "No Mass"
When I type. "Brett has never been a team player.. I mean he did it his way. Good for him, but that is not always the best thing for the team.
I still know that he has what it takes. He can get it done without being the maverick.
Did Brett or did he not check off on the play that was called in the NFC Championship game that resulted in the Pick. Did he or did he not check off on many calls that resulted in INT's at a critical game. BUT he also checked off on many plays that ere called and that check off resulted in a win.
Brett is Brett.
I am just pleased that he is getting it now while he is a Jet.
The game he played against the Pats was brilliant. Perfect, and without trying to throw a knock out punch in a fit of "I can do anything."
It is what makes him the best, but it is also what makes him frustrating.
If he can listen to his coaches... With the Jets, this team can go all the way. He has brought Mo-Jo to a team that has not any Mo-Jo since Joe wore nylons in a T.V. commercial.
