It is Time to Bench Brett Favre

It is time for Brett Favre to step aside.  His play of last night made it obvious that his heart and head are no longer in the game.  A passer rating of 50 in a critical game, nationally televised, and during his last appearance on the field in which so much had been achieved is an abject embarrassment. 

Beyond the play, look at his body language.  He wasn't coaching or cheerleading in the huddle.  He limped like a fouled soccer player after the play, but miraculously played through the pain during the game.  Where in the hell is the guy from last year? 

All of this is getting old.  Between his surgically repaired ankle, his tendonitis in his elbow, and pictures of his junk on an ex-coworker's phone, there is way too much going wrong with this guy right now to attach our playoff hopes to him. 

I never, ever, ever, thought I'd utter these words: 

Play Tavaris Jackson.  Please.
