Brett Favre Responds To Backlash Over Deshaun Watson Comments

Former NFL quarterback Brett Favre made headlines recently when he condemned Deshaun Watson for demanding to be traded from the Houston Texans.

“I’m kind of old school,” Favre said. “You get paid a ton of money to do a certain job and just do it and let the chips fall where they may. I think we make too much money to voice an opinion, but I’m not saying he’s wrong. I think it’s a different day and time, and it’ll be interesting to see how the organization handles it.”

After getting a bunch of heat, Favre admitted that he didn’t know all the details before making his comments on Deshaun Watson.

“When I made those comments, I also said, ‘I don’t know all the details.’ Honestly, in fairness to Deshaun, or anyone in that situation, it’s probably best that I didn’t make the comments I made,” Favre said this week on the “Pardon My Take” podcast. “I made them specifically based on the fact that, again, not knowing the details, which I think obviously is very important, so I’m wrong in respects to making comments without knowing the facts.”

Maybe Brett Favre needs to gather some intel before speaking on another man’s situation? Either that, or just shut up. I’d personally prefer the latter.
