But as the 2009 season grows nearer, he’s getting the itch to play again.
According to ESPN’s NFL insider, Chris Mortenson, Favre will meet with Minnesota Vikings head coach Brad Childress later in the week to discuss a possible return to the NFL at age 39. So now we know who will be the first head coach fired following the 2009 season, remember Mangini.
Favre is one of the greatest QB’s to ever play the game, but his legacy will continue to diminish with each interception and sub par game he has in his golden years. He’s already played 18 seasons, most of which were outstanding, but it’s time to walk away.
Like Michael Jordan, Favre has too much pride and is too competitive. Reality has proven that we all have to move on sometime, and his time is now. I sure hope he stays retired.
