I don't care about awards. I had no interest in the Heisman Trophy. I think the NCAA should award a trophy for Most Outrageous Heisman dad. Cecil Newton, father of Heisman winner Cam, would win. I want to hear the speech.
I don't care about streaks. For awhile, Brett Favre's was a testament to his willingness to play hurt.
The streak now has more do with Favre hurting his team.
It has become less about how Favre plays than about how many consecutive games -- 297 -- he has played. Maybe he plays tonight against the New York Giants. Maybe he doesn't.
Doesn't really matter either way.
Favre was a warrior once -- a blue-collar taker of chances who got hit, got back up and had so much fun. Now he's a guy who clings to what he once was, unsuccessfully.
