I know you’re thinking about coming back, Brett. You probably want to stick it to the Pack. Do it. I dare you.
Here we go again, Packers fans. Favre is up to his old antics. The Jets have released Favre making him available to any team in the NFL that wants him, including the Vikings. The question is, “Does Favre want to come back” and the answer is “yes.”
Favre is a competitive guy who looked great at times last year so he has the ability and drive, but that’s not why. After the 2008 edition of Favre-Gate, Favre publically stated he wanted to go to the Vikings just to stick it to the Packers - to stick it to us.
“I want to play for the Packers, if not, I want to play against them.” Yep, there was no moving on and going separate ways here. There was bitterness and pity vengeance, one of the many things that made me lose respect for my former favorite player.
Favre released a statement saying, "Nothing has changed. At this time, I am retired and have no intention of returning to football."
It’s a good thing we can take Favre at his word. He would never lie.
In February, the Vikings said they were not interested in the newly re-re-re-retired Favre but a lot can change in a couple months, especially after a draft where your team has improved and looks good at every position except the one that matters.
I hope he does come back and help us get two wins against the Vikings. I hope he comes back and further proves that Green Bay made the correct move to go with Aaron Rodgers.
So here we go again, boys! Will Favre stay retired? Will he start taking meetings with “friends” who happen to be coaches or general managers of teams in need of quarterbacks? Will we hear reports of Favre being in the best shape of his life and how he’s been training at a local high school?
I know Packers Lounge will be one of the first places to report any news on this subject so stay tuned for the 2009 edition of Favre-Gate.
As if this being the last time we might have seen Favre wasn't bad enough, it only gets uglier and uglier.
