“I’ve been doing this for years man…my rep is legit…”
Jet Favre…I meant to say Brett Favre is back playing quarterback, and this isn’t about a legacy, or stats for that matter…this time I believe its personal.
Originally drafted out of the University of Southern Mississippi by the Atlanta Falcons in ’91…the legend of Brett Favre became as solid as the frozen tundra of Lambeau Field, once he began to lead the Packers back to their glory days as Titletown USA. In 2008 he retired, and once he decided he wanted to play again…the Packers blocked him from going to any team in the NFC North division, so they wouldn’t have to play against him. He was consequently traded to the NY Jets, in which he retired again on February 11, 2009.
Yesterday he came out of hibernation only to sign with the Minnesota Vikings…an NFC North Division team. Interestingly enough…the Vikings play the Packers on October 5th in Minnesota, and then again at Green Bay on November 1st.
I believe the only reason Favre is back playing football is because he has something to prove not only to himself, but most importantly to the Packers…a club that he rebuilt, and won Super Bowl XXXI with.
This signing doesn’t make a lot of sense for the Purple People Eaters, but it is what it is, and we can only watch, wait, and hope that Favre can make for some entertaining football. He will more than likely start, and with a running back like Adrian Peterson, the gun slinging quarterback won’t have to throw as much, which could preserve his nagging shoulder injury deeper into the season.
Favre is back and as the old saying goes…there is nothing new under the sun.
