Maybe TV analysts are sick of the whole sordid saga of Favre and Jenn Sterger (whose low-rated TV show on Versus got the ax last week). Maybe they see the 41-year-old’s career light blinking and sense they won’t have to truckle to him much longer. But NFL analysts were out of patience with Favre on Sunday.
Terry Bradshaw of Fox NFL Sunday said: “We can’t get rid of him and he shouldn’t play today … There’s nothing wrong with sitting down and letting the young kid play.”
Fox’s Jimmy Johnson also called for Jackson, noting Favre’s “bad plays outweigh his good plays.” Johnson said he thought of benching Dan Marino but didn’t out of “respect” for Marino.
