He is coming back this season. That is a given. He will string it out a little bit longer, of course. Soak up some sun down south, hunt, do a little light cardio, the usual.
And then, either three days after or three days before the second preseason game, he'll tell Chilly to go to the airport and pick him up. And to get something from Jamba Juice for Deanna. Something with mango.
So it is written, so shall it be.
Look a little further into the abyss though: will this upcoming season be Brett Favre's last?
That question has been asked for nearly a decade now, but the answer is as difficult as ever. After the individual and team success he had last year, it is hard to say he couldn't play for two more years. And yet, after the beating he took in that New Orleans game and the beating he took after for that one stinking pass, this could just as easily be his last year. The offseason surgeries and blitzing linebackers have to be taking their toll. Why would he want to come back, what more does he have to prove?
