PANDORA'S BOX OPENED
HAVE FUN JETS FANS
Well, 11 weeks into the NFL season, and somebody in out East finally asked Brett Favre if he'd be back next year... and it is on!
I love it! I love it! I love it!
Regardless of where you ultimately came down on the whole Favre vs. Green Bay Packers thing this summer, nobody liked the annual "will he or won't he retire" discussion. I mean, we all agree on that, don't we?
So this morning, Packers General Manager Ted Thompson must be smiling... well... if the man is capable of smiling. Quick aside, have we ever seen Thompson smile? Ach... anyway... how funny.
Pandora's box has been opened. Now the question is out there, and Favre honestly said he doesn't know if he'll be back, and thus the question lives week after week after week. Everyone will ask it in an infinite number of ways. Favre will never answer it... and even when he does... why would anyone believe his first answer, or his second, or his third? The way things turned out this season, we may not know if Brett is forever retired until he's deceased. He'll probably still have a rocket for an arm at 85!
I was going to write a whole bunch more on this topic, but instead I'll link you to a fantastic column in the New Jersey Star Ledger. The guy said everything I was thinking. Enjoy. I mean... really enjoy it.
