Why Brett???

Last August and then again in December I stated that I expected Brett Favre to “Retire” once again and if the reports are correct that is exactly what the Vikings will be hearing soon enough. Strangely enough most reports that I have seen are saying that Favre has notified the Vikings that he will not be returning for a second season in purple, but we all know what that means… another team, another year, another implosion and then once again his favorite saying of “I retire”. As with the Packers, Jets and now the Vikings there seems to be a repetition to his actions.

I will admit that he had an amazing season. I am not putting him down for his play, I am displeased with him because of what he does to the teams he has held hostage each year. This is unfair and while the Packers and Jets seem to have come out of it in a decent position the Vikings may not fair so well on the QB front with only mediocre Tarvaris Jackson and Sage Rosenfels fighting for the starting role and 6th round draft pick Joe Webb holding the clip board. It is apparent that the Vikings were either expecting Favre to return or where completely in denial that he would once again retire otherwise they would have tried to make a trade for McNabb or drafted a QB higher then the 6th round.

Should we expect to see Favre in a new uniform come September?

  1. I don't know, but for some reason, this time feels like it'll end up landing on the side of retirement. This whole process can't keep on happening, can it?

    At least this time would be more of a high note, just missing the Super Bowl to its eventual winner. Add what must be some amount of diminishing desire and bodily effort, and it might be enough this time to walk away.
