I wasn't able to find the NYT article online, however...

Jets GM admits hiding Favre injury

Jets General Manager Mike Tannenbaum fell on his sword Thursday, taking responsibility for not listing Brett Favre on the injury report late last season, even though tests indicated Favre had a torn biceps muscle. Favre said he approached coaches with the idea that he might not be doing the team much good by playing. The Jets decided that a broken-down Favre still gave them a better chance to win and slip into the playoffs than a perfectly healthy Kellen Clemens.

Typical Jets. They always hang players out to dry like that.

I don't understand the significance of this story. If he was on the injury report, he would've been listed as probable and he would've played anyway. It seems to me like just a technicality.

Exactly. Essentially a non-story.



Moving on.

Now it's a non-story when Brett Favre can't be thrown under the bus and critisized.

Seems like Brett had no problem sitting down last year, when he knew he wasn't 100%, The Jets as an organization, decide he should keep playing.

Those of you who were all over Brett claiming he was playing just to keep the streak going, should acknowledge you were wrong.

But that will never happen, just good to know that Brett is still Brett and his one big flaw is that he speaks his mind, and is prety much a straight shooter when it come to the press.

I've already opened up too many cans of worms for the one who can't get over Brett coming back one more time so I will just end with.................

Good luck to you Brett, may you have a successful season, 14 out of 16 weeks this year. Glad to be able to watch you for one more year playing football like only you do!!!!!!

Three types...
Brett Fans
Packers Fans
Middle of the road, don't care Fans.

buck = Brett Fan (my opinion of course)


It's amusing to watch people throw their own twist on what they THINK are the facts. Wink





My personal opinion. Brett can say anything he wants, he's openly admitted that his most valued record is the consecutive game streak. So for him to say NOW, after the fact that he'd have receptive to sitting ... right. Sorry, I'm not THAT stupid to believe that word for word. Fact is, Brett at 70% was better than any QB on their roster at 100% that is why he continued to play.

Brett had no business once so ever disclosing the information about his injury while with the Jets in the fashion he disclosed it. It put unnecessary heat on the Jets, temporarily.

I love Brett for his openness, but he needs to learn when to say things and when NOT to say things. The injury with the Jets, being receptive to sitting a game or two, that is stuff that should be disclosed in his book after he is retired, for good.

Again, my opinion, even the 'fact' is my opinion. Smile

I've never tried to hide the fact that I am a Brett Favre fan.

When he goes against The Packers, he will just be the opposing qb.

The rest I'll agree with what you said Z.

Makes perfect sense to me, I used to use the ole IMHO, whenever I would post, I will go back to that so as not to come across as trying to make my opinions onyone elses.
