Brett's Bust

No, I don't mean Jenn Sterger's chest. (Yes, the pic is safe for work.)

Let's assume this is Favre's last year. Probably not a safe assumption, but let's just say it is. He's a lock first-ballot Hall of Famer. He's played 16 of his 20 years with the Green Bay Packers. Two with the Vikings, and one with the Jets and one with the Falcons.

But he seems to be vilified in Green Bay right now. Both his trips back to Lambeau, he's been booed mercilessly. Even limping off the field tonight, after a loss, most of the crowed seemed to be hanging around in the lower levels just to boo him. As he headed toward the tunnel, the booing was very loud through the TV.

I don't know how he doesn't go into the Hall as a Packer. But with the way the town seems to be treating him right now, it's also very hard to envision him going in as one. 'They' say time heals all wounds, so five years from now maybe they're cheering him again. But when fans are hanging around after the game and booing a guy that's hurt and just lost in a town where football is life? That doesn't seem like it's a fan base likely to forget...
