Dez Bryant called Brett Favre quickly after his comments on Deshaun Watson.
Brett Favre said a very stupid thing.
The Hall of Farmer was asked what he thought of Deshaun Watson’s situation with the Houston Texans and how the young gunslinger used his clout to force an exit. The older gunslinger gave perhaps the most non-contact answer anyone tangentially connected to soccer could have given.
“You get a lot of money to do a certain job and you just do it and drop the chips where they like. I think we make too much money to have an opinion, but I’m not saying he’s wrong. I think again it’s a different day and time. “
The response to Favre’s comment was quick, and most pointed out how ironic his statement was. Favre tarnished a ten-year relationship with the Packers by forcing his way out of Green Bay when it became clear that Aaron Rodgers would replace him as a starter.
One player who made an exception to Favre’s two-sided statement was former Cowboys recipient Dez Bryant.
Dez Bryant says he’s no longer a fan of Brett Favre
When Dez replied to the comments, he realized that this was how he literally burned his Favre jersey.
The feeling that Bryant has has been shared by almost anyone with any knowledge of the past 15 years of football history.
Instead of dropping the chips where they could, as Favre Watson had suggested, the Hall of Farmer dragged everyone on a 2008 trip that included a retirement, a retirement, a deal with the New York Jets, and finally a stay with them the rival Minnesota Vikings.
For what it’s worth, staying with the Vikings has largely been seen as Favre, who tossed the bird over the border into Wisconsin and twisted the knife in the most painful way he knew he could.
Favre’s chips didn’t fall so much as they were tossed across the room in a fit of anger.
Watson is also in a situation Favre was not in. Favre had come to the natural conclusion that every single NFL legend is at. Watson tries to find his way off the Titanic before it halves, as the Texans have created a situation where Watson can either escape or waste the best years of his career on an organization that clearly does not value his talents.
