This "news" probably should have been included in the Hot Routes this morning, but whatevs -- it's Favre and you know you love it. Apparently, Favre talked with kicker Ryan Longwell (they go way back from their Green Bay days) and told him what the dealio was on his status for 2010.
And you'll never guess this, but Favre still doesn't know ! Which gives him something in common with Loki the Octopus . Except everything with Favre is dependent on his ankle, duh.
"I guess the thing is, from talking to him, the big issue is everybody knows he had the surgery on his shoulder last year and that was kind of three weeks out and he was zinging the ball around with little or no pain," Longwell said. "So he's had bad ankles over the years, and everybody knows that. He thought that the ankle would recover, kind of like the arm did last year, and unfortunately it just hasn't."
Honestly, expecting an ankle to recover like a shoulder is about as logical as expecting Brett Favre to make a decision before the end of August. So, for now, let's just hold our breath until it's time for an Albert Haynesworth post. Oh, right. That's now.
