God, would you please just shut up already?!

Brett, I have been faithful to you for a LONG time and even I am sick of you right now. There are about a billion ways you could have gotten your precious trade without having to fake a retirement. You’ve put the Packers in an impossible situation. And it’s all because we didn’t stoke your ego enough? Seriously? You are good, one of the best players ever, but this isn’t 1997 and let’s all be honest here - you aren’t what you used to be. You have one, maybe two more good years left. And if Tampa wants your interception record along with your touchdown record, they can have it. Give us our $26 million back. I think Rogers is going to be a good quarterback. Will he be as good as you? Probably not. But do we need all the endless drama going on during training camps? Hell no.

You will always be one of my favorite players. And you will always be the reason I got into football in the first place. But I don’t understand how you can be putting us through this. The team, the fans. We have passionately protected you and supported you for the last 17 years and this is what you do now? You could have gone out on top and truly been one of the greatest players ever. Now you will always be compared to Vinny Testaverde and George Blanda. Or maybe people will talk about you like they do about Michael Jordan or Sugar Ray – excellent players that didn’t know when to call it quits. I hope I am wrong. Even if that means rooting for a different team. I hope you come back for one year, where ever you end up, have an unforgettable season, and then call it quits. But unfortunately, I don’t see that happening.
Regardless of what happens, I am just sick of hearing about you. Sorry, but it's true.

He did... he is now a Jet. A Jet all the way. From his first cigarette to his last dying day.

At least it's a different conference. But what the hell am I supposed to do with my stupid #4 jersey now?!

O.M.G. I was so sad he was making me hate him. I never thought that day would come. But seriously, having been an idealistic sports management major in high school there is no bigger pet peeve of mine than pro players being obnoxious. That being said, I'm thinking a game at the Meadowlands sounds like kind of a fun trip.
