Woodson: ‘I’ve lost respect for Brett’

Brett Favre has become one of the more polarizing figures in the NFL. There’s no denying that the trail he has blazed in his multiple retirements and un-retirements from the league, and the media coverage it has brought, has left many cringing at the first mention of the story.

Count Hall of Famer and NFL Network analyst Rod Woodson in this group. He shared his thoughts Tuesday on “NFL Total Access.”

“This five-year saga, I think, is played out,” Woodson said. “I think a lot of veterans in the National Football League, even though I’ve been retired for seven years, are really tired of this.”

While not taking anything away from Favre as a player, Woodson took aim at the way the situation has been handled.

“He had a tremendous year last year. There’s no doubt that Brett Favre is a Hall of Fame quarterback,” Woodson continued. “But I’ve lost respect for Brett in what he’s done the last five years, and I’ve lost some respect to where an organization has to go to win a Super Bowl … and thinking that this is the only way to do it. So, here we go again. It’s win a Super Bowl (or bust) for the Vikings.”
