Does Any Team Really Need Favre Now?

It’s July of 2011, and here we are again talking about Brett Favre. This time, a Philadelphia radio host made speculation about Favre being a backup to Michael Vick.

Here’s my question: Why?

Why are we still talking about this man? Granted, his career has been fantastic, having a Super Bowl ring and just about every passing record you can think of, under his belt. I love the way he has played throughout his career and there’s no doubt in my mind he’ll be a HOF in his first year of eligibility.

But why can’t we just the let man retire and live out the rest of his days in peace in Mississippi? Why must managment think that hiring a 41-year old, whose last image of him was on the ground with a concussion, on the cold Minnesota ground, is such a smart idea? Are you telling me that no other quarterbacks on the soon-to-be free agency market is capable of being a backup and playing starts in the event Michael Vick suffers an injury or plays poorly? If that’s the case, you might as well get Vinny Testaverde to unretire and have him be a 3rd-stringer while you’re at it.

Imagine at least half of the people in Lincoln Financial Field wearing this...


Sorry, but even if I was GM of a horrible team, I still wouldn’t touch him with a 10-foot pole. He’s done; get him to Canton and let him leave the game before he suffers something worse than that concussion last year.
