Talk of a Favre return already fired back up

Brett Favre is done with football forever. Having heard him say that over and over this offseason, we think we might maybe know that.

And then the venerable Gil Brandt, in a chat on NFL.com, goes and ruins everything by pointing out that he thinks Favre could end up coming back in 2011.

"I do think Favre would be interested in talking to a team about returning," Brandt wrote Tuesday. "But I don't see a team out there right now that would bring him back as a starter."

That's primarily because there are too many quarterbacks with a) less drama and b) less mileage out on the market for the teams in need for a quarterback.

If you're a team like oh, say, the Vikings and you want to bring in a veteran to push and mentor Christian Ponder, the last person you want is Favre. Not only has he shown that he's typically unwilling to take a role as a backup, but there's plenty of unwanted drama that comes with No. 4.

In the end, even though we'll still be forced to mention Favre rumors for the rest of the offseason, that'll probably be the case with every team around the NFL, barring some unforeseen circumstances.

He has lost more games for his teams than he has won.

You better do a little more research before you post a dumb remark like this.

I hate Favre.  He has lost more games for his teams than he has won. Thats what happens when you try to be 'the man' and dont care about your team.

Announcement

Has Favre scheduled a presser yet to announce which teams he is considering coming back to this year?  if so, will it be televised online?

Need a Drama Queen, hire Favre. Need a professional football player to mentor a younger player run away from Favre as far away as you can.

Brett Favre is the N.F.L. at its finest.  If I were a Packer fan, I would ask management to talk to Brett about coming back as a Packer.  THe Aaron Rodgers experiment did not work out so well.  aaron went out there and won last year's Super Bowl.  Aaron Rodgers is not Brett Favre.  I see the Packer fans enjoying the moment when Brett becomes the old gunslinger and throws a Pick Six at the worst possible time.  Brett, the Packers still love you and wish you were in the  Green and Gold.  Aaron Rodgers is a great guy, a great QB and a stellar teammate.  However, the fans still love Brett Favre although BF is not a great teammate.  True Packer fans would trade Aaron Rodgers to a west coast team such as Denver, San Francisco or Arizona and beg Brett Favre to come back.  Winning and losing are not important when it comes to Favre.
