Default FAVRE to un-retire again?

Brett your old it's time to hang up the helmet. I used to like Farve but what an annoying moron he's become. He's no different then an tantrum throwing kid.

Childress: Favre likely to be discussed
May 1st, 2009 – 4:01 PM by Judd Zulgad

Coach Brad Childress said the Vikings have yet to discuss the fact that Brett Favre is now on the open market and free to talk to other teams — the quarterback was released from the New York Jets reserve/retired list on Tuesday — but acknowledged the subject likely would be broached. There has been speculation that although Favre retired for a second consecutive offseason in February, he might return to play for the Vikings.

“We haven’t [talked about Favre],” Childress said. ”It doesn’t mean we won’t. We talk about everything from what’s going on in the United States on the front page today. … We talk about everything. So, yeah, I’m sure we’ll talk about that.”

The Vikings are currently planning to go to training camp with Tarvaris Jackson and Sage Rosenfels battling for the top spot but Favre wanted to play for the Vikings last season and the only reason that likely didn’t happen was because the Packers refused to grant him his release. Favre was eventually traded to the Jets. Childress has known Favre since he visited the Packers on a semi-regular basis while serving as an assistant coach at the University of Wisconsin.

Vikings offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell, a former Badgers quarterback who served as Favre’s position coach for a period in Green Bay, also remains good friends with Favre. Childress said he and his staff have been so busy to this point that Favre simply hasn’t come up.

“I think the thing there is we’ve had our heads down so hard here on the draft and then after the draft signing free agents and after that getting ready for this minicamp,” Childress said. ”I go through the waiver wire every night. [But] we haven’t really even had a chance to even talk about that. Our focus has been on the guys we sign and getting ready for this and then just finishing up the draft stuff.”

Childress did not say when was the last time he talked to Favre. “Like I said, I haven’t had time to do much,” he said, “aside from reeling in this draft and then we’ve had staff clinics this week from 8 to noon every day and then get back and putting this minicamp together. … And then see our guys that are in the building. I’m more focused on the guys that are here, participate in the offseason program. I’m more focused on our three quarterbacks right now. Tarvaris and Sage and J.D. [Booty that are progressing through this program and our offseason program.”

I really don't think Brett is coming back this time. His wife would castrate him if he even thought about it.

After he threw 2 TD to 9 INT on the way to a four game losing streak and a trip home during the playoffs, I don't think he'll come back. I think he came back to earth.

And that is the real reason why the Jets missed the playoffs. Mangini was just the scapegoat.

Funny thing is, Favre is STILL better then the bottom third of QB's out there today. However, I wonder if it stopped being fun for him. Once the game stops being fun, it really is to "be hanging up the blades and retiring the axe"

Well, if throwing ints could have stopped him he would have retired 15 years ago.

Seriously, I hope he stays retired, but unfortunately he would be an upgrade in Minnesota.

This guy really needs to just go away. Seriously.

It's over, Brett. Time to get on with your life's work.
