Great. There must be football fans out there who aren't sick of hearing about whether or not Brett Favre is going to keep playing football, but I don't know who they are. Despite that, Gil Brandt has ensured that we're going to keep hearing about it.
"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."
Well, yeah. Favre had a quarterback rating of 69.9 last year. He's not a starter at this point. And as CBS Sports point out, he's also not a good fit to be a backup, due to all the drama that swirls around him all the time. He'd turn any training camp into a circus, and for what? It's hard to imagine who would want him. Plus, there's the fact that if you're a general manager, you can't even text Favre to tell him you're interested, because you never know what you're going to get back.
The amount of virtual ink that's already been spilled about Plaxico Burress and Tiki Barber this offseason is already bad enough. The last thing we need is to give Brett Favre what he wants most in the world by talking about him for another month. The NFL Lockout can't end soon enough.
