In his latest effort, Jason Whitlock pens possibly his worst article of 2005 (and just under the wire!). He suggests that Brett Favre should be traded to Oakland and -- big surprise -- Jeff George should be his backup. (Unless Favre can play safety, this is a ridiculous idea. But you already knew that.)
He also thinks that Drew Brees has regressed and should share the blame with Marty Schottenheimer for the Chargers' disappointing season. (That makes sense. Brees is sixth in QB DPAR -- up from ninth last season -- and it was probably his idea to sit Antonio Gates in the opener too.)
Whitlock goes on to write that the Seahawks aren't a Super Bowl team because he "just feels like Matt Hasselbeck is going to do a couple of stupid things in Seattle's playoff opener." I could go on, but I had to quit reading because my eyes started bleeding.
