Again it has started, we hear nothing but Brett Favre this, and Brett Favre that, and blah, blah, blah...

It gets to be really sickening. Now we keep hearing about how the only place he wants to play football is with the Minnesota Vikings.

The reason? He wants revenge against the Packers. I really hope he stays retired—because if the only reason he wants to play again is for revenge, then he's gonna get killed.

He should just stay retired and keep it at that. His bum shoulder has limited his throwing abilities.  He supposedly had shoulder surgery in May, but won't commit to playing until his shoulder is better.

The NFC North is is a run-happy division. All he really has to do is manage the game and not pull dumb mistakes. But on the other hand it is also a hard-hitting, defensively-strong division which can hit guys hard. Favre takes one too many hits, and he could never play again.

So my best advice to Favre? Stay in retirement and enjoy mowing your lawn in Mississippi. Maybe you can become a coach or something to scratch the football itch.  A comeback should be the last thing on your mind.
