Brett Favre has returned to the NFL for the 100th time out of retirement. Like most people I was really not surprised at all with Favre signing with the Vikings. I have much deep seeded hatred for Favre because he tormented the 49ers for some many years when they were contenders in the NFL. Favre will have one more opportunity to distress the 49er Faithful when Red and Gold travel to Minnesota in week 3 on September 27. With Favre the Vikings are instant Super Bowl contenders with their running game, solid offensive line and their defense. But who is Favre going to through? He has no reliable receivers on the team. Can he hold up for a whole season without getting injured? My prediction is the Vikings will get off to a great start in the first-half of the season but will have a losing record in the second-half of the season the same way the Jets faltered last year. Favre will miss at least one game this year due to injury in which his consecutive starts streak will end.
Last week the big news story was for another quarterback signing with a new team, Michael Vick. The 49ers travel to Philly in week 14 on December 20. By that point in the season Vick will be in full-swing with the Eagles offense.
How to Keep Favre Retired
Favre signed a two-year deal with the Vikings which made me think, he is going to try to play two years in a row at his age. The next time he retires here are five ways to keep Favre out of the NFL:
- Tell him the NFL has merged with the Arena Football League (make him believe the league is back) and that team will make him an offer soon.
- New NFL rule does not allow players to be unshaven.
- New NFL rule limits the number times you can come out of retirement.
- The number 4 has been retired for every team in the NFL.
- In order for him to return he has to change the way he spells his name to the way he pronounces it: FARVE
