Want to make an Atlanta Falcons fan cry? Want him to take an ice pick and stab his eyes out with it? Former Texas A&M starting quarterback Johnny Manziel has done just that by wearing a retro Brett Favre jersey from his one season with the Atlanta Falcons. A lucky Twitter account holder got a pic of Manziel and his NFL fashion statement, and shared it with the Internet.
Last night in CStat for @JManziel2 ❤️👍 #GigEm #BestNightEver #BestOfLuck pic.twitter.com/OKmxjyrjdgFavre was drafted by the Falcons in the fourth round in 1991, but was used sparsely and was traded after the season to the Green Bay Packers. It was there that he led the Packers to a Super Bowl victory in 1997, and became an NFL Legend.

There's no chance Manziel gets by the Falcons, of course. The Falcons have their own no. 2-wearing quarterback in Matt Ryan, and are quite happy with him despite an injury-ridden disaster of a 2013 season. Still, there's a whole lot of "what could have been" seeing JFF wearing a Favre Falcons jersey, and in multiple levels as well.
No excuse me, I'm going to drown my sorrows in a gallon of ice cream, or something like that.
