I'm not going there.
Which is to say, I'm not going to waste my time or yours inquiring into the motives that are apparently compelling Brett Favre to return to the NFL with the Minnesota Vikings for another go-around on the gridiron.
It's already been done, to death.
I googled "Brett Favre" on my laptop early Wednesday evening and up popped 4,341 news entries.
The "Brett Favre Saga" has become a cottage industry almost overnight.
I say that an NFL legend like Favre has earned the right to live his life, or play out his career, as he chooses. If he feels that he has some unfinished business to attend to, so be it.
I'm much more concerned about where Favre intends to play in 2010.
How about the Oakland Raiders?
JaMarcus Russell has yet to establish himself as a bona fide starter and Jeff Garcia is getting older.
The Denver Broncos?
Kyle Orton may or not fill the shoes of the dearly departed Jay Cutler.
The San Francisco 49'ers?
Neither Shaun Hill or Alex Smith seem poised for a breakout year.
The St. Louis Rams?
Marc Bulger or Kyle Boller?
The Seattle Seahawks?
Matt Hasslebeck is aging fast.
The Washington Redskins?
Jason Campbell will have to post MVP-worthy numbers to remain in D.C. for another year.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers?
Byron Leftwich, Brian Griese, Luke McCown, and Josh Johnson aren't likely to turn heads.
You see, the field is wide open for Favre in 2010. He won't be picky.
The only proviso is that the team he plays for must have the Green Bay Packers on their schedule for 2010. And, it wouldn't hurt if his prospective employer's brain trust is as clueless as that of the Minnesota Vikings.
There it is, I'm finished.
At this time, I'm retired and have no intention of returning to this subject ever again.
