Everyone knows by now that Brett Favre has told the purple that he is NOT going to play for them in 2009 – at least today. But, it seems that there is still a shot for Favre to come back for a contender in 09:
There’s speculation that Brett Favre could decide to return during the season if a contender, such as the Vikings, suffers an injury or mediocre quarterback play. Favre could always return in 2010 at the age of 40 after some rest. Favre told his friend and former coach with the Packers Steve Mariucci that while his shoulder felt better, mentally he had a hurdle to get over and he just didn’t know if he had that energy to sustain him for a whole season. But even Mariucci questioned the finality of this decision.
As usual, it seems that Favre is doing nothing by posturing for a shot to play for a team that is going to be close to or headed for a playoff spot, and if their starting QB goes down, Favre will ride in on his white horse to lead them to the promise land. Ugh.
