You didn't think that we were going to get through the off-season without this, did you?
Yep, get yourselves geared up for the latest round of Brett Favre comeback talk, courtesy of Gil Brandt of NFL.com.
I think Brett is still a good quarterback, but I'd consider him a descending quarterback. It's awfully hard for him to go to a team and be a backup. The Vikings must start Christian Ponder this season to get him some experience. And they're not going to get Favre in there to babysit Ponder.
That said, I do think Favre would be interested in talking to a team about returning. But I don't see a team out there right now that would bring him back as a starter.
At least we know that if Favre does attempt a comeback in 2011, it won't be with Minnesota, as his contract with the Vikings has expired and the team no longer has any obligations to him.
Although we as Viking fans appreciate what #4 did for us during the time was here. . .in direct contrast to the ungrateful fans of his previous employers. . .I think everyone can basically agree with Brandt on this. Favre isn't going to come to Minnesota to mentor Christian Ponder, and Leslie Frazier appears to have moved on from the Favre era in Minnesota. If he was interested in being a backup, that would be another matter all together. . .but he's not, and we all know that he's not. In 2011, the "will he or won't he" drama can be another team's issue.
