Oh for fuck's sake, Brett Favre.

Brett Favre Compares Kaepernick To Pat Tillman, 'I'd Assume Hero Status Will Be Stamped'

Brett Favre says Colin Kaepernick's willingness to leave his NFL career to fight for social justice reminds him of Pat Tillman's ultimate sacrifice ... and now, he's telling TMZ Sports he thinks both will be remembered as heroes.

The Hall of Fame QB spoke with us about Colin this week ... and told us straight-up he believes Kaepernick will go down as a legend for what he's done to combat systemic racism.

"It's not easy for a guy his age -- black or white, Hispanic, whatever -- to stop something that you've always dreamed of doing, and put it on hold, maybe forever, for something that you believe in," Favre said.

Brett told us he believes it's all very similar to what Tillman did when he left the NFL to fight for his country in the Army in the aftermath of 9/11.

"I can only think of right off the top of my head, Pat Tillman is another guy that did something similar," Favre said. "And, we regard him as a hero. So, I'd assume that hero status will be stamped with Kaepernick as well."

Cam Newton to New England. Part of me hopes he takes them to a super bowl.
Is there ANYONE that wants this bet- Cam Newton and the Pats on the road for a playoff spot... they're getting 6 points to (insert any team in the history of life here).

Bill Belicheck is an evil mastermind like no other.

I’m interested to see if Belichick tries to turn Cam into a pure pocket passer.

It wouldn't surprise me if the entire team was just given a brand new 500-page playbook built around Newton's strengths.
Exactly. The patriots are an ‘everything by committee’ team. Their system allows for a ton of shit- it’s why fantasy owners hate Belicheck.

And now you’re plugging Cam in there with a cast of vets and a ready made offense? AND Brady plays in another division? Cmon.
