I know it is only the beginning of the season, but when you're off to a start like Brett Favre, you would have probably been better off retired. 

Favre in two games has been very inconsistent. He has thrown one touchdown, four interceptions, and for only 396 yards. 

It has only been two games, but Favre is 40 years old, he had ankle surgery this offseason, but I don't think that ankle is 100 percent. 

When you get older and you have injuries, it's harder to heal.  

Yes, his receivers haven't exactly helped their quarterback out, but you've got to lay some of the Vikings struggles, simply because he has been turning the ball over. 

Favre needs help from his wideouts, but he also needs to stop making bad decisions. 

If Favre can't improve soon, then the Vikings (who are two games behind the Bears and Packers) will have no shot at the playoffs.  

Favre has beaten every team in the league, he has been a three-time MVP, and a Super Bowl champion. To put it like this, his career has been a pretty memorable one. 

But this year looks like one that will make Favre want amnesia.  

Also, I wanted to announce I'll be writing for sidelinestalk.com
