So Favre has asked for his release from the Jets. He was obliged.

That started the rumors that he was going to make his third comeback in as many years.  Favre stated to his agent who relayed it to the press that he was not going to come out of retirement. I believed him.

On "Jim Rome Is Burning" today, Rome stated that Favre has hired a personal trainer today.  Why would you hire a personal trainer if you were not coming out of retirement?

If you still aren't convinced that he is attempting a comeback, then just look at more rumors that the Vikings have sent a private jet to Hattiesburg.

I could see why the Vikings would take a risk on this "old timer", seems they aren't convinced that Tarvaris Jackson or Sage Rosenfels are the answer for them.

My message to Favre is: stay retired, your arm gave up on you late last year. He threw nine interceptions in the last four games, keeping the Jets out of the playoffs.

I mean you lost to the Dolphins!

No one should have lost to the Dolphins except maybe the Lions, who lost to everyone on their schedule last year.

It would pain me to see the Vikings with Favre beat the Packers in October, in Minnesota.  Though it would be a great sight to see him throw away the Vikings season later in the year because of his "dead arm".

Favre needed surgery on his throwing arm during the offseason, which he opted out of, because he was "retiring".

So let me get this straight, the Vikings are so desperate that they would even surpass starting Ferrote, for a quarterback who hasn't reported to any offseason camps.

Or even trained personally at home during said offseason, as well as skipping a much needed medical procedure.

Then again, this could just be a bunch of rumors, and Favre could deny the Vikings.

Either way, I am not terrified if Favre comes back with them, or stays retired.

I would hope that he asked for his release, just so he could sign a one day contract with the Packers, and finally get his number retired.

Say it isn't so Favre.
