Talk of a Favre return already fired back up

Brett Favre is done with football forever. Having heard him say that over and over this offseason, we think we might maybe know that.

And then the venerable Gil Brandt, in a chat on NFL.com, goes and ruins everything by pointing out that he thinks Favre could end up coming back in 2011.

"I do think Favre would be interested in talking to a team about returning," Brandt wrote Tuesday. "But I don't see a team out there right now that would bring him back as a starter."

That's primarily because there are too many quarterbacks with a) less drama and b) less mileage out on the market for the teams in need for a quarterback.

If you're a team like oh, say, the Vikings and you want to bring in a veteran to push and mentor Christian Ponder, the last person you want is Favre. Not only has he shown that he's typically unwilling to take a role as a backup, but there's plenty of unwanted drama that comes with No. 4.

In the end, even though we'll still be forced to mention Favre rumors for the rest of the offseason, that'll probably be the case with every team around the NFL, barring some unforeseen circumstances.

It may actually be true, then again it may be more media horse cr.p. Either or, what ever any fan feels. Is just for themselves. If, Brett Mr. Farve wants to play or anything else. That is his choice; his, his families and the team ready to have him. This is still America. For those with thin skin and ready to tell anyone what they can or should or shouldn't do; needs to go quietly in the night, somewhere else. The man was great, still could possibly play at a higher level than some. It's up to him! Period. More power to him. Either or if he plays or not.
