Why You Don’t Bench Brett Favre

Four reasons why (health permitting and no action by Roger Goodell) Brett Favre should remain the Vikings’ starter the rest of the 2010 season:

1) Favre is the straw

To borrow Reggie’s metaphor, Brett Favre is ‘the straw that stirs’ the NFL’s drink.

As exciting as are Adrian Peterson, Jared Allen and Percy Harvin, it’s Brett Favre who packs ‘em into the Metrodome and every other venue he visits.  Apart from that rare blowout (Carolina 2009 / Green Bay 2010), a Brett Favre led team is always in the hunt.  Packers’ fans cherished this for fifteen years and it’s why most Vikings’ fans are still tickled-purple that Favre chose to end his storied career in the Land of 10,000 Lakes.

2) Swan Song season

Even though they toiled on cellar-dwellers and their skills were fading, what I’d give to go back in time to see Babe Ruth smack three home runs in his final game against the Pirates or Johnny Unitas toss one last spiral in his powder-blue Chargers’ uniform (I was fortunate to see Hank Aaron as a Brewer but too young to drink in the moment).  Brett Favre is just such a player.  Iconic.  We’ll never see his like again.

What a difference a year makes.  But Minnesota’s 2009 was so special that only a moron would criticize too loudly Favre & Company‘s decision to test the fates one more time.

3) Patience can be a virtue

The media chorus is growing louder each week for calls to bench Brett and hand Tarvaris the starting job.  But most Vikings’ fans remember all too well just how uninspired T-Jack’s play can be, going back to his last starting stint in a 2009 home playoff loss to the Eagles.

I’m not sure why the Vikings team seems to have mailed-it-in for their game against arch-rival Green Bay but I’m guessing it has nothing to do with Brett.  I think they’ve still got his back.  Mr. Jackson would be better served to stay on the sideline and glean all he can from observing and interacting with one of the all-time greats.

4) Favre (or Childress) is not what ails the Vikings

Sometimes change is good (see Dallas Cowboys).  It can treat a malaise which takes hold on losing squads.  But starting Jackson does nothing to correct the Vikings biggest problem: trench doldrums. Their offense and defensive lines both have been struggling all season long (ditto on the secondary). The porous O-line dates back to 2009.  It was a bad sign when, in each of his inaugural pre-season games, a recuperating Favre got slammed into the turf on his first snap from scrimmage.

If the Vikes are banking their future on Tarvaris Jackson, his confidence could do without the beating.

    Would you really want to see Babe Ruth weighing 300 pounds and struggling to GET to first base when he doesn’t hit a home run – or corkscrew himself into the ground swinging and missing wildly at a mediocre curveball? Would you pay money to see him use his bat as a cane to hold himself up?
    Would you want to see over-the-hill Johnny Unitas a once great field general, struggling to make reads downfield or escape from a much faster pass rush?
    Would you like to see 70-year-old Gordie Howe struggle to skate around the rink just to say you saw him skate?
    Would you really rather go to a Yankees Old-Timers Game to see Yogi Berra and Whitey Ford and Goose Gossage playing slow-pitch softball?

    I for one would rather watch old film of Michael Jordan or Johnny Unitas or Wayne Gretzky when they were on top of their game. I’d rather watch a film of the 1975 World Series than see Ted Williams in a golf cart parading around Fenway Park. Who wants to see a bunch of overweight, turkey-necked octogenarians wave to the crowd wearing their old jerseys over hospital gowns. NFL Films and MLB Network and NFL Network offer us Willie Mays or Dwight Clark making The Catch in their heyday, not some Washington Generals exhibitionary reenactment. The memories are entrenched in the moment, in their time… where they belong. Admire the achievement, respect the man, but don’t look to embarrass Yogi Berra at age 80 by making him squat behind the plate!

    Brett Favre has been a huge part of the tapestry of the NFL for 20 years, but Aaron Rodgers now looks a lot more like the Favre we remember than the Favre we see. That doesn’t take anything away from his accomplishments nor does it diminish those memories. Sport is something we all love, perhaps because it is fleeting and in a constant state of change; perhaps because the Game remains essentially the same but every individual game is entirely unique and unpredictable.
    Favre will retire but the NFL doesn’t afford the option of a Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Farewell Tour with Rocking Chairs and denture cream and ceremonies at every venue. Football, like hockey is a sport for the young and there is no place on the field for anyone who is not operating at 100%. Injuries happen to the young and healthy but it is irresponsible to put someone like Favre on the field. He could be injured permanently and at what cost? The Vikings are going nowhere. Favre simply can’t take this team to the promised land. The franchise need to know what Tavaris Jackson can do and they are painfully aware of what Brett Favre cannot do.
    If you respect the memory and legacy of Brett Favre then you have to let him fade into the sunset. If you love someone, set them free. All that is to be gained by leaving Favre out there is to get him hurt, to denigrate his legacy and to wind up carrying him off the field rather than let him leave on his own.

    So Brett Favre is more important than the Vikings franchise? Cmon now.
    He’s washed up, and has been for the past 5 years. Yeah, he had a great year last year, but for the most part he throws the ball to the other team more than his own. He has to go down as one of the most overrated players in NFL history.

    The author says it plainly:

    “Four reasons why (health permitting and no action by Roger Goodell) Brett Favre should remain the Vikings’ starter the rest of the 2010 season:”

    Hold on, that’s 2 reasons NOT to have Favre remain the starter. Moving on:
    3. The team is 3-7
    4. Favre has thrown like 20 INT
    5. Favre is 42 and will be lucky if the team doesn’t force him to retire – Swan Song season for a reason!
    6. Favre is going to get killed if he keeps playing and the Vikings seem to be fine with that possible outcome
    7. Favre is the straw? My ass. Childress is gone and this should be a team featuring Adrian Peterson, Jared Allen and guys who will be here next year – not some guy who will be shooting John Deere commercials in Dumb Prick, Mississippi
    8. Patience is not a virtue in the NFL. Favre has played 20 years. If they’re waiting for him to get better at age 42 ten they’re even more foolish than Brad Childress. Favre may still be with the team for now but Tavaris Jackson should be the starter.
    9. Brad Childress will be lucky if his wife allows him to be the Head Coach of the remote control – let alone coach again in the NFL. This guy has proven what a yutz he truly is
    10. Trench doldrums? Don’t even know where this comes from. There is no malaise or mayonnaise, this team is simply not very good. Injuries to most of the skill players, a fragile QB, an inexperienced backup and wasting a talent like AP… This team made it nearly as far without Favre in 2008 as it did with Favre in 2009 – and that was with Jackson at QB and focusing the offense on AP and the young corps of receivers. This defense under Frazier can be solid. Frazier can’t right this ship for 2010 but hopefully he can point them in the right direction for 2011.

    No subject gets Packers’ fans stirred-up like Brett Favre.

    Chris: 300 pound Ruth, old-timers games, rocking chairs, I don’t know where you’re coming from? The Babe put on quite a show his last game. I think all three homers left the ballpark. As for Johnny U: in my world, it’s not all about fantasy numbers.

    Adrian: Brett’s been “washed up…the past five years,” but he “had a great year last year.” I don’t understand your point.

    Greg: Who put the straw up your ass? You gotta’ calm yourself down before you write.

    “This team made it nearly as far without Favre in 2008”: That was the season Gus Ferrotte got the Vikes back on track and Jackson & Company got embarrassed in a first-round playoff lose at home to a so-so Eagles’ squad. Yeah, real impressive Greg.

    “This defense under Frazier can be solid:” “can” be solid? Frazier’s been the DC in Minnesota for three seasons.
