Unnamed Jets player now being quoted as saying that Favre was distant and had very little to do with teammates when he was at the practice facility.

Favre was a virtual god in Green Bay. He was treated there with an incredible amount of deferrence. I think he expected that same treatment to follow him wherever he went. Turns out it didn't.

Their players should be mad at management for making the move to acquire Farvre in the first place. Quite frankly, when people started talking about Farvre coming to the Panthers, it made my stomach churn. He was a great QB in his day, by you don't trade for 39yr old QB's, based on what they did in a completely different offensive system...unless you're just looking for a solid back up.

Really, the Panthers and Dolphins came out pretty good in that deal, because Miami got a solid veteran starter, and Carolina got a solid back up as insurance for Delhomme's elbow.

We will see how much Jones' will complain next year when they have a new HC, a new QB maybe twice (might have a QB contest on who can start there if Farve leaves)

i dont really like the media call out of other players, but im sick of the halo that the media had put around favre for the most part, he did not deserve the pro bowl at all. and if the player reports are true that he spent alot of his time in private training and such away from the team then good, let people call him out. favre is finished and i hope he stays away from the game now, atleast as an active player

It's about time somebody put that coach-killing premadonna in his place. Good for Thomas Jones.
