Brett Favre is one of the greatest quarterbacks to ever play the game of football, but it appears that years of getting hit are starting to catch up with him. Speaking to Sports Illustrated as part of its annual “Where Are They Now?” issue, Favre claimed that at age 45, he could still play in the NFL and was not shy about why.
Well, those are certainly bold words from the future Hall of Famer, especially since this is the same man who retired a grand total of three times.
First, with the Green Bay Packers in 2008 before being traded to the New York Jets after Green Bay didn’t want him back; then again with the Jets the following year and finally two years later after two seasons with the Minnesota Vikings.
That said, only one thing can be said to Favre, and I think I speak for everyone when I say this.
Brett, we love you, but you’re delusional, even if you are aware that you couldn’t lead a team now. Given how banged up you were at the end of your career, it’s a miracle that you can even walk well today, let alone coach youngsters at the local high school.
Thus, as much as we’d love to see you back on the field, stay with your family in Mississippi. Your family and wallet will appreciate not having the unnecessary medical bills!
