It's about fucking time. The seemingly endless Brett Favre comeback saga has finally ended--at least for a couple days. I, for one, am glad that it's over. He has held us all hostage long enough. But seriously, what a piece of shit. Brad Childress is already regarded as one of the worst coaches in NFL history and now you lead him on this wild goose chase only to have him come away with his dick in his hand. What a fucking prick.
I can't lie though, I am incredibly disappointed that Favre didn't come back. I was really looking forward to his epic failure with the Vikings. With the way he played down the stretch last year, I was having dreams of his shitty play snowballing throughout the regular season and ending in an avalanche of suck that might leave him paralyzed on the field. I was just waiting to see Brett Favre get yanked in Week Nine for Tarvaris Jackson. How great would that have been? The Vikings would have been an absolute train wreck down the stretch and Brett Favre has taken that away from us. Damn you Brett Favre, damn you.
So what does this mean for Favre? I don't have a clue. This circus isn't over just yet and he is already telling people that he isn't sure about his decision. It's still blatantly obvious that he wants to play and the Vikings would still take him all the way up until the very end of August. If he doesn't come back this year, then he will most certainly be entertaining the idea of a comeback next year. And the next year. And the next year. Hell, if Jeff George can make a run at a comeback at 41 then Favre might pull this shit until he is 50. We can only hope that the rest of the NFL will get smart and not entertain this dick anymore. You will not win with Brett Favre, don't even pick up the phone.
As far as the Vikings go...yikes. Brad Childress and drunkard Allen can say whatever they want about their confidence in their current guys, but they know that's a crock of shit. If they were so confident they wouldn't have been hanging on some old man's every word for the last three months. You might as well just give Childress his walking papers now. They are going to have the worst starting QB in the NFL this year...that is not named Jake Delhomme. Adrian Peterson is a beast, but there is only so much he can do without the help of a competent quarterback, especially when the playoffs roll around. I think the Vikings are still the favorite in the NFC North--but everybody's favorite is Detroit--despite their shitty quarterback play, but they are doomed to get bounced from the playoffs in the first round, just like last year. But nobody in the NFC North is really relevant, so who gives a shit.
I am ready for my first football season in 19 years that does not involve a bitch named Favre. Aren't you?
