Analysis of Favre's Re-Retirement: Jay Sorgi
By By Jay Sorgi
Brett Favre, the quarterback of the Minnesota Vikings during the 2011 season, has retired for the second time in the last 11 months.
Yes, you just saw me write that he's the quarterback for the Vikings in 2011.
Of course, I'm kidding, but I'm not so sure that won't happen.
As things stand right now, as long as the Jets don't release his rights, there is no danger of him reaching the NFC North.
To me, it would not be a shock if he stays retired for 2009.
But perhaps there's the thought in the back of his mind that in 2010, the Packers are set to go to the Meadowlands and take on the Jets on top of Jimmy Hoffa's corpse.
Then, he'd be a free agent.
I'm not convinced the Minnesota Vikings will find a better quarterback to fill their needs over the next two years.
It wouldn't take much to convince me or anyone else that if they haven't, Brett Favre would, at age 41, jump to the land of the annoying horn and the worst dump of a stadium in the NFL, the Humpty Dump.
Then again, that 2011 season, perhaps he might make the ultimate in Benedict Arnold moves and become a Chicago Bear.
After all, the Bears haven't had a consistently healthy quarterback of an above-average level since Sid Luckman.
(For those of you under 40 who aren't NFL historians like me, he last played in Chicago in 1950.)
But hang on a second...let me be a little kinder to the guy.
