  • WWBFD (What Will Brett Favre Do)

       August 03, 2010

    So, Brett Favre is apparently retired again. But this can't be the end of it, can it? Doesn't he owe the Vikings a few more anguished weeks of hemming and hawwing? What do you think will happen next?

    What will Brett Favre do?
    Stay retired
    Unretire next week
    Unretire before the end of training camp
    Unretire sometime during the regular season
    Unretire but then re-retire before the start of the season
    Unretire several years from now so his grandson can remember seeing him play
  free polls

    "Brett Farve" is a hot trending topic on Twitter. "Brett Favre" is not.

    Oh the poor, poor Vikings fans.

    Hey, they paid for the whole Brett Favre Experience. Now they're getting it.

    Choice Strib comments:

    If he retires now...

    After leaving the team dangling the entire off-season, he's cemented his legacy of being a complete and total narcissist and a world-class jerk. I have no problem with a guy deciding he's problem with the retirement itself, but you do it early in the off-season so that your team can react and replace you. The Vikes would absolutely have done something more in the off-season at the QB spot if they'd have known. Instead he waits until training camp. Classless.

    Oh, the irony...

    IF It's True......

    There will really be little need to watch the Vikings this year. We're gonna go from a Super Bowl season (yes, we should have won it last year) to cellar dwellers. Sorry to be a pessimist, but we all know what the QB situation is, and we're not going anywhere with the 2 backups we have. Should still have a tough D, but absolutely no offense, which is ridiculous with Rice, Peterson, Harvin, but with nobody to get the ball to them, it's all wasted talent.

    True fans!

    Do you suppose...

    ... this is why Green Bay pulled the plug on this annual charade?

    What's that? Do I detect a clue? In Minnesota Really?

    An actual good column from ESPN

    We know you understand. We know you love the circus. We know that you know that we know you love it. Nobody can tell us otherwise. In fact, we're positive that's why you just maybe might announce your big adios today, effective immediately, and probably, possibly, we'll see for the rest of your life. Because you saw that we still needed you. You saw what was happening. Impostors and wannabes were clawing at your throne, encroaching on your turf. Like camera-hogging wonder twins Terrell Owens and Chad Ochocinco. I'll form an Eagle; you form a bucket of water held by a publicist! Or Ozzie Guillen saying something inflammatory about race. Or Albert Haynesworth's Sisyphean struggle to outsprint a pack of panting television reporters.

    Or "The Decision." That had to smart. Total ripoff. LeBron James, fishing in your pond, dragging things out, acting all conflicted, creating a silly spectacle that left people visibly annoyed and secretly entertained.

    The nerve.

    As such, no wonder you're "retiring." You have to restore order. Set the late-summer sports world back on its axis. Put the pretenders in their place. Metaphorically get these kids the heck off your lawn.

    Brett, we're behind you. Count on that. No matter what. In fact, we prefer things that way. Once you're done walking away for good, when you come back after training camp, or in Week 6, or just in time for the playoffs, or for the second half of the NFC title game ... or if during your Hall of Fame induction speech you tear off your yellow blazer to reveal a No. 4 Washington Redskins jersey underneath ... well, we'll stand behind that, too. Never stop stopping. Never quit quitting. Be you.

    Always remember: We can't pretend to miss you if you don't pretend to leave.

    I was looking at my nephew's senior pictures online and it dawned on me that Brett Favre has been the starting QB for a team for his entire lifetime. Other than bye weeks and playoffs, every football Sunday he's ever known has included Favre.
