Good Luck, 4! – Former Packer Mayes Talks Favre


Retired Packers Wide Receiver Derrick Mayes just posted his own blog entry with his thoughts about the Brett Favre deal on Prolebrity:

I wanted to respect the chaos — by that, I mean the process of Brett Favre’s return to the NFL –before I made any public comments. Well, here goes …

Just four months ago, I sent out a press release congratulating Brett on his retirement. And as I watched Thursday’s news conference, with Favre holding up a NY Jets jersey, I thought to myself, ‘This isn’t the end. This is just the beginning … of a new SAGA!’

As always, I wish my former teammate the best. Heck, I even offered “4? my Riverside condo in Manhattan until he gets his island legs. And that is just where he is now, literally, on an island. It’s unfortunate, but the only measurement of 4’s success this season (outside of Hempstead) will be whether his new team’s record is better than the Packers.

Make no mistake, Ted T. and crew will also be measured and critiqued accordingly. In simple terms, no one comes out a winner this year — not even Aaron Rogers, who’s got the sports world’s largest set of shoes to fill.

Did I say no one? OK, almost no one — the good ol’ NFL not only has an incumbent world champion in their largest market, now they’ve got a world icon to hold the limelight in NY just in case Eli starts 2-4 for the G-Men this season.

I don’t know, nor do I care to predict, how this season goes for 4. But as I type this blog with three crooked fingers (from catching passes from him), this loyal brother and teammate would like to make just two wishes:

Wish #1: That Brett has a safe, healthy season
Wish #2: That he gets a HUGE cut of his jersey sales revenue!
