Yet Another Brett Favre Comeback? (I wish I were Joking)


I seriously wish I were joking about this. Really, I hope beyond hope that this is just the beginning and  the end for this next media cycle. Even an NFL lockout cannot stop the ole gunslinger from allegedly playing the attention whore card.

The Green Bay Packers, the Minnesota Vikings, the New York Jets, who will be this time? Does anyone even want him? Maybe Favre’s 1,875th retirement and comeback will be much less annoying this time around, as it comes at a time when there is ZERO football news.

From The Big Lead

“I think its great that we’ve moved past talking about Favre and can officially get to talking about talking about Favre. Or in this case, talking about not talking about Favre. Until people are yelling about this on Around the Horn again, I think we can move on. Unless more stories like this one from’s Gil Brandt come out.”

That said, I do think Favre would be interested in talking to a team about returning. But I don’t see a team out there right now that would bring him back as a starter.

I’m speechless. I guess Favre is looking  to trade in his crocs for spikes again. To put down his cell phone camera and pick up the football another time. Meaning I just threw up in my mouth. And then threw the vomit that was already there onto my shoes. Because there are other similar Favre stories floating around the internet, from similarly credible sources.

Get ready! You’ll never get rid of him, just like you’ll never get rid of Jenn Sterger.

  1. Seriously?? This is your news? A reporter in a chat says he thinks Brett would be interested in playing again??

    Of course people are going to talk about this. He’s retired and unretired 20 times, though who really cares about that. He’s been there week 1 every year, so its like retiring on your vacation but being at work when it is over. It’s not a real retirement.

    I would think this is the year he does stay retired. Yeah, people are going to say that they think he wants to play football. Not exactly a stretch there, or anything new. He is one of the greatest QB’s ever. Granted with the lockout, that’s all 2nd rate “news” sites have to post up.

    And who cares if he does?? Tell me a more exciting QB to watch whether you love or hate him? Every play could be a 80 yard TD between three defenders, or a pick 6 on a underhanded screen pass. You vomit over excitement in the NFL? Maybe curling is more your speed then? As for the articles, it is easy, choose to read them or don’t. Nobody is forcing you to read Brandts take on Favre. If you don’t like it, don’t read it, and don’t repost it. Simple enough.

    I have to admit, versus some of the other vitrolic comments we receive here at TSB, yours is much more cogent, has proper grammar and spelling and has some sense to it. You’re obviously dead wrong on a ton of things in your comment, but I applaud you for providing a more sensible and reasonable critique than we usually get here. You make a couple salient points, which is much more than I can say for most of the others
