Rumor has it that Brett Favre has a meeting with Vikings’ head coach Brad Childress this week to potentially become the team’s head QB. I said last year that the NFL should implement a rule wherein if a player officially retires and then changes his mind, he should be required to wait a year before being reinstated. I was under the impression that Favre retired again; however, it seems that “retirement” and “hiatus” are interchangeable terms in his vocabulary.
Why Minnesota, one may ask. Well, it’s close to Wisconsin. Maybe he still has his old house. And the Vikings and the Packers are in the same division. Oh, and Tarvaris Jackson didn’t quite turn out to be the star that he was slated to be. But come on, Favre is 38 and he didn’t exactly do splendidly in New York. Just retire already, stay out of the news and get a job as a QB coach or commentator but please give us all a break from your narcissism.
