Brett Favre: Legendary QB Will Not Be Coaxed out of Retirement
No matter how hard coaches and the media try, Brett Favre is retired.
There is no other way to cut it. By the end of last year, the future Hall of Fame quarterback was a beaten, broken man who had nothing left in the gas tank. Favre couldn't extend his ironman streak and was destroyed by opposing defenses.
When the season came and went, it seemed like the signal caller was at peace with his future, but Tony Sporano had to open his big mouth and leave the door open for a return. My question is, if Favre truly wanted to come back, why Miami?
The Dolphins have no shot of winning the Super Bowl and even with his addition, they would still be a third place team behind the Jets and Patriots. Needless to say, it isn't an ideal scenario for a quarterback whose window is all but closed.
Favre hasn't made a peep about coming back, but inevitably, the NFL and those who cover it feed off of drama about a possible return. As much as people want to say they hate it, there is a large segment of the population who love the drama about his constant waffling.
Bus Cook, Favre's agent, has ruled this possibility out, saying that the man is retired, and that there's nothing anyone can say or do to change that. Finally, after years of drama, the gunslinger has realized that his time has come and gone.
It had to happen sometime, and thankfully, he did it without seriously jeopardizing his health in the process. With the way last year ended, it was obvious that if he hung around for more punishment, Favre would be putting himself in harm's way.
The media can speculate all it wants, but in the end, Favre is going to watch the 2011 season from his couch with the rest of us. In the end, that is what's best for everyone involved, the Dolphins included.
Miami may he seduced by the big-name that Favre possesses, but it would be a sure-fire disaster that would turn into a sideshow before the end of the season. No franchise needs that kind of attention.
