Favre’s comeback…again!

Look, I’m not surprised Favre signed again, but frankly I don’t care anymore. Obviously, Favre got major beef with the Packers. That much is certain. He slogged through a season with the Jets to get to this point.

Here’s Favre’s deal: $12M this season and $13M next season, assuming he doesn’t re-re-retire.

I believe that Favre has pulled the greatest Grand Hustle (Shout to Averagebro) in NFL history. He’s been getting a check for mediocrity… since about 2000 or so. We haven’t seen someone hang on for a check since…Robert Parrish played until he was eligible for AARP benefits.

I agree with most of the Twitter-verse that a certain Michael Vick will be sending Favre a gift basket for pushing him off the front page for a day or two.

I’m sure that Aaron Rodgers isn’t pleased that he’s back. The comparisons will start spinning up again.

Actually, you know who I blame for all this mess….MJ. He made it cool to retire, unretire, retire, unretire….you get the picture.

This will undoubtedly push Tavaris Jackson and Sage Rosenfels to try harder. Bernard Berrian and AD might become even more productive with Favre under center. Provided that he brings the INTs back under control.

Am I the only one that thinks we are reaching Greek tragedy levels with Favre? It’s like he’s searching for something but he can’t find it. Yet he won’t quit looking.
