Sparano on Favre: 'I can't rule anything out'

UPDATE (4:00 p.m.): Bus Cook, Favre's agent, likened Favre to Elvis (no, really) in an attempt to downplay the rumors.

"Brett Favre's retired, that's all I can say," Cook told ESPN. "He's like Elvis now. People just won't let go."

------

The Brett Favre watch isn't dead, we're sorry to inform you. We thought it was dead when his agent Bus Cook told the press that Favre is "retired, period."

But then Tony Sparano, who's dealing with some major quarterbacking drama down in Miami, had to go and refuse to say he wouldn't look at Favre for the Dolphins.

"I can't rule anything out...I'm giving you the only answer I can give you," Sparano told reporters when asked about Favre, per Omar Kelly of the Miami Sun-Sentinel.

But all the fault isn't on Sparano -- Dave Hyde, a Sun-Sentinel columnist definitely poured a couple gallons of gasoline on the proverbial fire when he decided to write a column Thursday titled, "Why shouldn't the Dolphins call Brett Favre?"

His list of five specific reasons why the 'Fins should sign Favre are, actually, not that suspect, outside of the part about turning "the Dolphins from a team no one's talking about to one everyone is."

That's just silly, in my opinion. And not because all the publicity surrounding Favre with the Jets and Vikings the last two years has been terrible either. It's because the goal is to win football games, not "get attention." 

But, yeah, I'll recognize that Favre might sell more tickets than incumbent Chad Henne. And jerseys. And ... well, maybe that one works too, dammit.

Still, couldn't we at least just let the initial overtures on Favre begin in a way that doesn't require me to delete a bunch of comments telling me that "this isn't news"? Please?

Didn't think so -- and so we beat on, boat in the past and whatnot.

8ball, you were amusing for a COUPLE minutes, now it's clear you are simply an annoying TROLL. But even a troll should come up with original material. I said YOU were a jack-off, and you call me a jerk-off. Stop COPYING everything I say, chump.
Also, I DON't need to get on a freakin bus to COME to your slum. I'd drive my BMW 750i if I wanted to continue this conversation, but I don't, because arguing with a troll is a WASTE of time.
Also, here comes THE constructive criticism again, new RULES for you are as follows. 1) You may not call people NAMES on THIS board. 2) You cannot ROOT for the JETS, you give JETS fans A terrible NAME. We're not all AS obnoxious and boorish as you. 3) You must LOOK UP words and references to pop culture THAT YOU don't understand before responding. 4) You have to acknowledge that just because I use the screen name Vince Vega, it doesn't mean  "I think I am in Pulp Fiction". haha. That's a good one KID. Do you think that you are a pool ball, specifically the 8 ball? Or does 8BALL in your screen name refer to something more nefarious?
If you comply with THESE rules, the NWO will be happy, as will Mr.McMahon, Triple H, Stone Cold and Randy Orton will be very happy also.

oh wait bri.....did the jets win the super bowl?? ummmm NOPE!!! thats what you play for right???
so yea Miami didnt make the playoffs and the jets did, but neither won the super bowl so bottom line, both teams failed, soooooooo after that, seeing as both teams didnt win it all, you look at head to head for bragging rights....and fat rex and all his big talk cant seem to beat Miami much!!! i remember when he talked crap about the wildcat and Miami swept his fat ass that year and last year split the 2 games.what
