Brett Favre is not the Brett Favre of old.  But, with that being said, he is still in the upper tier of NFL quarterbacks.  The problem Favre has been stirring up over the past few seasons is not because he is a drama queen.  Brett Favre is going to be 40, the age when your midlife crisis begins.

It all makes sense with Favre.  He doesn't know what to do.  Favre has been changing his mind over and over again.  One day he wants to cut grass, the next day he wants to chuck a pigskin.

All men go through what Favre is going through now.  He knows that if he stops, he can never resume.  He knows that as long as he resumes, he can never stop.  Fans are irritated with Favre right now.  They can't stand his uncertainty.

If you were going through your midlife crisis, would you feel upset if someone judged you. Let play speak for itself. If/when Brett Favre returns, you just need to think about you, and if was you that was turning ESPN into a media circus
