Green Bay Packer Brett Favre is considering coming out of “retirement.” Apparently, he’s got the “itch” to play, and he’s talked to coach McCarthy about showing up at training camp.
Utterly ridiculous. First off, you don’t get to come out of retirement if you never actually missed playing time. Yeah, Favre had a retirement press conference, but there haven’t been any games to miss. He wouldn’t be returning, because he never really left in the first place.
Secondly, what the hell are the Packers thinking to have him back? It’s time to move on. Go with Aaron Rodgers. If he sucks, give Favre a call. But this is a giant distraction just waiting to happen. Frankly, I feel bad for Rodgers either way. He’s got to have a shot sometime, right? Fuck. Just when you think a guy might actually ride off into the sunset with a teary-eyed goodbye, he’s got to go and grandstand.
