Alright everyone, if I may break the sacred rule of keeping in mind the fourth wall, let me just begin this posts with one word.
In what quickly went from being America’s favorite to most hated story just over one year ago, it appears the Brett Favre retirment saga will live on. Of course, not without disturbing his former Green Bay Packers.
ESPN’s Ed Werder is reporting that the former Falcons, Packers, and Jets quarterback will head up to Minnesota to meet with Vikings head coach Brad Childress sometime later this week. Favre will likely be with the presence of agent Bus Cook, who just earlier this week seemed to believe Brett was leaning towards playing again. It has been said that he is soliciting for the help of quarterback coaches to get him back into throwing shape.
The news of course could mean a few things are in store for the future. If a deal were to hypothetically get done between the two parties, it would likely require for Favre to be present at offseason workouts and training camp. With his body ailling and an internal sense of assurance, this could propose a potential problem.
Alongside, Brett will have to battle the likes of the newly-acquired Sage Rosenfels and Tarvaris Jackson.
In 2008, Brett Favre was voted into the Pro Bowl after beginning the season in a fairly effecient matter, leading the Jets to the top of the division. However, the Jets would ultimately suffer a collapse that would send them to the division gutter and Favre under the knife. He would finish the year with 22 touchdowns and 22 interceptions even.
More to come (believe me, it may never end) on this ongoing saga.
