New York Newsday: As Brett Favre leaves for his postseason hiatus
and ponders whether he wants to play one more season for the Jets,
the future Hall of Fame quarterback ought to think long and hard
about what Jets safety Kerry Rhodes said. With Favre pondering
retirement yet again, Rhodes suggested yesterday that Favre needs
to make a much quicker decision this time around. Rhodes, perhaps
the most outspoken leader on the defense and clearly one of the
most important voices in the locker room, hinted strongly that an
extended hiatus is not in Favre's interests if he does come back
in 2009. "If you want to be the leader on the team, then you come
in program and do your thing," Rhodes told me. "If he wants to
have the whole locker room, then he's got to let everyone know
that he's committed to doing this again." Favre had a cushy deal
with the Packers in his later years, rarely showing up for
offseason conditioning programs and doing the bare minimum in
preparation for the season.
