Sure, Brett has bursts of brilliance showing why he was once the leagues most valuable player, but those days are now behind him.
Last year, Brett had an exceptional season. Whether that was a fluke or a hint of what a true and healthy Favre plays like, it doesn't really matter because he will never be in the shape he once was.
This season proved why players get high salaries, why general managers invest so much into kids coming out of college and why Brett Favre will never play again. Football is a high-impact sport and it feeds on the weak.
Every year, we get bigger, stronger and faster athletes entering the league. While they become the stars of the NFL, players like Brett Favre become their target. He is old, slow and prone to injury. And that makes him ineffective to be a starter for a team that revolves around the health and state of their quarterback.
