Favre Returns for Another Season




Green Bay, Wisconsin- Football's version of the Messiah has decided to bless us with one more year (at least we hope it is just one more year). Brett Favre decided late last week that he would return for his 17th season. How could he not come back after a 18TD and 18INT season with a 56% completion percentage?

If you are like me and you hate Brett Favre, this decision doesn't surprise you. I am just surprised he didn't hold a press conference while Tony Dungy was giving his speech at the Super Bowl to shine the limelight on himself a little more. I suppose, however, that I am glad that we won't have to wake up every day to ESPN talking about how Brett Favre is a gun-slinger and how he has a good three years left in him.

There has never been a player that has slipped more and somehow maintained his grip on the media more than Brett Favre. After dabbling in Javon Walker's contract negotiations (as if that was his business), Javon Walker ended up tearing his ACL in 2005. Probably would have been nice if Walker could have gotten that contract done before he tore his ACL, but that wasn't in Brett Favre's plans. Or how about Brett Farve holding the team hostage last year and not deciding he was going to play until a few days before the draft. What a team first guy! A guy that is so into his own legacy like Brett Favre will go out on his own terms, just like Emmitt Smith and Jerry Rice. I can't wait to see how miserable he is in 2007 and I look forward to his 2008 appearance on Dancing with the Stars!

Brett Farve is the kinda guy that every coach wants as his QB. Brett Farve will go down as the greatest QB ever! "If Brett Farve had the ring"

I have no respect for Favre after his addiction to painkillers.

Brett Favre maintains his hold on the media because he is a black quarterback, like Donovan McNabb and Daunte Culpepper

I'd much rather be catching balls from a 47 year old brett favre than anyone on the current browns roster.
