I bashed Favre for not coming to camp. I bashed Favre for poor play in 2010.
I LAUDED Favre for supplying a spark in '09, and taking charge of the team (Something we hadn't had a QB do since Gus Frerotte did it in '08).
But I NEVER excused Favre's poor performances. I called Favre out for bad play week after week.
I also called out the WRs, the Line, and other elements that didn't play well, but I NEVER stated or implied that those elements gave Favre a pass.
ON THE FLIP SIDE OF THAT:
The Teflon Tarvaris supporters ONLY blamed the line, WR's, Coaching, etc. "He was put in too early", "He was held out too long", "He only gets 1/3 of the play book", yada yada yada...
They NEVER said, "Jackson played like poo today", it was always, "Jackson would have been good if the line had blocked/the receivers had caught/the coach had called/etc.
And THAT is the difference.
Favre wasn't given the free passes Jackson was. And Jackson got them for FIVE YEARS!!!!! So, PLEASE, don't try and sell me on the notion that there was some sort of double standard in play here. There most certainly was not.
