Brett Favre is staying retired.
Goodbye Brett… Goodbye.
The Minnesota Vikings will win or lose with Sage Rosenfels or Tavaris Jackson, and the people of Green Bay and Minnesota won’t have to deal with the serious psychological effects of having to watch their savior/archenemy sleep with the enemy.
The Minneapolis Star Tribune is reporting that Brett Favre spoke with Vikings head coach Brad Childress and told him that he was going to stay retired.
“I just think it was a rare opportunity to explore a Hall of Fame quarterback who had background in the NFC and in this division,” Childress said. “He knows our system inside and out… This doesn’t change anything about how I feel about our football team.”
I will lose no sleep over this, and instead will try to guess how many days ESPN will continue to talk about the decision. The only person more upset with this “developing story” is Ed Werder, who got scooped by the fine journalists of the Twin Cities.
