Favre is returning!

It's just been reported here in Green Bay that Brett Favre is returning to the Packers next year. Nothing on the national news yet, but all the news stations here are reporting it.

Dang it Favre. Now I still have to worry every time the Bears play the Packers. He can still do some amazing things.


I also bring up Aaron Rogers. Does this stunt his development? Or is it his development, or lack of possibly, that brings Favre back to this organization once again?

I just called my dad to make sure he heard, and when he answered, the first thing he said was, "Did you hear the news?" I said, "Brett Favre?" He said, "Yeah!" Good to see we're thinking alike.

This is a joke now. A)he's not a factor anymore and risks making a fool of himself by sucking, B)He's on the verge of becoming one of those people who become a joke for constantly threatening to retire, then backing out, or even worse, really retiring and coming back, retiring and coming back (like Sugar Ray Leonard) It will reach the point where everyone will go 'who cares anymore.'

I think by now Michael Jordan is probably the most well-known example of an athlete actually retiring, coming back, retiring, coming back, and retiring again.

not for nothing... i work with a ton of people from the midwest. for the most part they're all cardinal fans and packer fans. die hards, too. when the news first came over the internet about favre it was right around noon... i printed out the article and brought it down to the cafeteria and gave it to the 4 die hard packer fan teachers. each and every one of them was thrilled.

so packer fans, for the most part, want him back. favre wants to be back. what is the issue? i hope he plays as long as he possibly can. he's not like sugar ray leonard or michael jordan. he's never retired... never... not once. all he's said is that he's thought about it. and who hasn't?

if he can play till he's 50 and still be respectable, why the hell not. who am i to say when someone else should give up doing something they love?

So the Cardinal fans haven't taken up with the Rams instead? They don't hate the Cardinals for moving to Arizona? Just asking, in comparision to the way some Baltimore fans react.

He's headed that way.

But most people, in football or not, don't go around making a big story out of it in the media about how they MIGHT. I saw his tearful speech after the last game of the season. Why even make an issue of it in public, unless you want the attention, or want to feel really cool when people beg you to come back, then more attention when you decide to stay? All I'm saying is, retire, or don't, but don't make a hugeass deal out of the possibility like he has the last two years. That does make him almost as bad as those guys who retired and came back.

And when he does finally retire, I bet he does that too.

The key is that they were close to the playoffs this year. If the team around him gets better, he can be successful in the weak NFC.
