I just cant picture favre in anything but a Packer uniform. This is going to be the same thing as MJ playing in washington, it's pointless.
I've heard this point and it's stupid. Yes Favre did officially retire last fall, but is unretiring, and yes he has been yanking the Pack around with this much like Jordan did, and yes it looks like he is going to play for a different team. Unlike Jordan he is not playing any other sports (first Jordan mistake) and he is not taking any time off/away from the game (Jordan sat out 3 seasons). Jordan’s biggest mistake would be that he came back after he finished on-top with 3 championships and hitting one of the sweetest game winning shots ever.
Favre did not finish on top, yes he has the ring, but it’s been 10 years, so I wouldn’t say he’s finishing on top so it’s not pointless. See Favre sniffed super Bowl last year and he now believes he can finish on top much like Elway and he thinks he can still do it, more power to him. It's not pointless, he still has gas in the tank, that dude could will 3 more years out of his body .... I believe they will have to take Favre off the field in a stretcher before he quits.
