Here’s one possible silver lining to the NFL lockout: it could keep Brett Favre off the field. Rumor has it that Grampy Favre is debating coming out of retirement…yet again. Outrageous, huh? Usually I’d say don’t “shoot the messenger”, but if there’s any truth to this, please shoot me.
According to NFL.com analyst Gil Brandt, Favre would be “interested in talking to a team about returning.” That’s at age 41, following the worst season of his career. Oh I’m sure teams are just chomping at the bit to add someone with a 69.9 QB rating to their roster. #extremesarcasm
How true are the rumors? Consider the source. Brandt is a former vice president of player personnel for the Cowboys and he has strong ties throughout the league. Still, one can’t help but hope that he’s just bored and making up stuff to piss us all off. And btw Gil, mission accomplished.
