Don't worry about it Minnesota. Your team is not going to leave and go to California.  Once Brett Favre signs with your team your revenue stream will jump by 30%. 

Hell, Favre was able to keep the Packers afloat for 15 years. Now they can't make the playoffs and their revenue is falling drastically. 

Realistically, Favre could play till he is at least 45. The oldest QB to start was Steve DeBerg at 44 years and 279 days young. It has been done before so there is not reason to believe that Favre can't play or shouldn't be in QB discussions. Especially with all of this new-fangled health care and HGH.

So if you are one of those individuals that sit at home all day and watch ESPN and complain about the Favre coverage, I have an idea for you.  Get a day job and realize that Favre has another five years of possible playing time if he wants.

If you don't like people commenting on Brett Favre, reporting on him, buying tickets to see him, buying jerseys of him for their babies, collecting his MVP cards, collecting Superbowl memorabilia, gifting Brett Favre boxers to their husbands, or hanging up posters that say, 'Everyone's BF Brett Favre: #4 Ever,'  then turn the channel.
