Brett Favre is hoping to be the first zombie to play in the NFL
Favre is never going to go into the HOF because he's never going to retire.
I have no problem with him continuing to play at age 40. Bless him, but I do have a problem with him continuing to change his mind. Three weeks ago the answer was no and now that we're through two a days he changes his mind. If the Vikes do well, all will be forgotten. If he breaks down like he did last year, he'll wish he never came back. He'll be remembered more as a punchline for retirement than football if he's not careful
Favre and Clemens: The definition of Prima Dona's!
So, Favre says he may not play in all the games for the Vikes. I'm sure they are overjoyed at that news.
I can't believe that the Vikes went out of their way to get a 40 yr old qb who hasnt done offseason conditioning in what 4 years and expected more out of him. This isnt baseball where you can take 2-3 weeks and get back in the groove (Pedro anyone). Football is a collision sport and him not doing the offseason stuff adds to the chance his body quitting and leaving the Vikes up a creek without a paddle.
You reap what you sew, Vikes fans for your sake I hope your coach knows what he's doing.
When people say that I donít know what Iím talking about when it comes to sports or writing, I think: Man, you should see me in the rest of my life.
Bump...just trying to help out, be prepared.

Jesus not again.....If he doesn't retire after the beating the Saints put on him he aint never gonna retire.
Apparently Jay Glazer has already reported that "every player" in the Vikings' locker room believes that Brett Favre will retire this offseason. And Favre said in his post-game press conference Sunday that he isn't ready to make any decisions about his future.
Personally I'm thinking about calling Favre Phil from now on cuz he's just like the groundhog. The same thing happens every year. It's like it's become a rite of spring for him."I wouldn't say months, I know people will roll their eyes," Favre said when asked how long he'll take. "I really don't want to make a decision right now. I really enjoyed the guys. I just wonder if I can hold up, especially after a day like today, physically and mentally. That was pretty draining."
"Now that's a real shame when folks be throwin' away a perfectly good white boy like that."
I don't care about his off-season antics, as long as his final decision is to play. I love seeing him play.
After the pounding he took last night though...

I'd rather listen to Kelch read the phone book than suffer through Thom Brennaman's attempt to make every instance on the field the most important event since the discovery of manned space flight. -westofyou
