Alright, I've officially had it.

How much Disney stock does Brett Favre have in his portfolio? The way their subsidiary ESPN talks, you would think Favre was the company's majority shareholder.

Enough with this guy already. He's finished. Ask any Jets fan.

But ESPN won't let go. NEWSFLASH: He did not invent the game of football. Every day, ESPN dedicates hours to following the Brett Favre "saga." I say: Who the hell cares?

Viking fans? They should be protesting the signing of this guy! Do they think he is actually going to get them to the next level? They better think again. He's done!

For years, Favre tortured Viking fans as a Packer. Now he will do it as a Viking.

Think of it this way, they've played 43 Super Bowls in NFL history. Favre has been to only two, winning one. That was way over a decade ago, by the way.

He ain't goin' back to another, either. He should have hung up his cleats after that piss-poor pass in the NFC Championship game vs the Giants that was picked off.

Even if Favre is right, he's still too much of a maverick, still deviates from the playbook, and still has the propensity to lose games by trying to win them all by himself.

Those days of heroics are over for Favre.

He should walk away now. I would hate to see something bad happen to him physically. He already has begun tarnishing his legend.. thanks to ESPN - the Sports Overkill Network.
