When I look at the picture above, I think to myself, "Yeah Brett, what the Hell are you doing to the NFL and it's fans?" The answer is simple: Ticking them off.
As I searched for pictures of Brett Favre in a Packers jersey, it reminded me much of what he actually has become in Green Bay: An afterthought. Aaron Rodgers is the present and future, and although Brett brought a Lombardi trophy back to Wisconsin, I believe he'll never get his respect back.
Recent ESPN fetishes for Favre have showed that he wants to play again in 2009, not for the Jets, nor the Pack, but for the Vikings? Any Kraft cheese helmet wearing fan's jaw dropped at this abomination of a report. Sure it was in the works last year, and it has been a possibility this entire offseason, but for it to manifest in to truth would be unfathomable, like Phil Mickelson actually sinking a meaningful putt or Dane Cook actually telling a joke he wrote.
Fans are telling Brett to do what Rosie O'Donnell should've done years ago, which would be to let it go and quit already. Where's Donald Trump when you need him?
As a general fan of football, I would be OK with Barry Sanders, Daryle Lamonica, or Jack Kemp making a comeback and coming out of retirement, but Brett, we've seen it before, and you're done. Going to the enemy will further sully your career and make you more hated than the $5.00 footlong commercials.
Sure, Brett still loves the game. At soon to be 40-years-old, who wouldn't love playing America's favorite game? It's been done before, Brett, so please, ride off into the sunset rather than add to your career interception records.
If he comes back, expect another mediocre season and pure hatred in Lambeau, and an induction in to the, "Hall of Shame".
