The yoyo Brett Favre and his re-re-return to football...AND one last shot at glory.
Now an Archive:

This blog chronicles the ups and downs since his tearful departure from Green Bay in early 2007 to his brief flirtation with the Jets to another renaissance in the land of 10,000 lakes. Little did I know this rollercoaster ride would have this many ups, downs and turns.

And then there were the accusations of a bounty on Favre in that NFC Championship game against the Saints. This blog is mostly an archive but will be updated from time to time. There's no chance he'll come out of retirement now? Favre is still the NFL's version of Elvis.

Now, on to my bloggin' until this thing is done.

The Favre Wait
March 23, 2017 at 9:49am
Something I wrote July 9, 2008 that's probably posted here somewhere or a dead link.... I often drive by Brett Favre's Green Bay home. The other day, I noticed a landscaping crew caring for a nicely manicured lawn. My son asks as we drive ... [Read more]

July 7, 2015 at 9:48pm
Profootballtalk.com is a website that echoes some of the stories around the sports world on the NFL. They ran a blurb on Favre's comments regarding his split from the team in 2008. Link here: http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2015/07/07/brett-... [Read more]

Last Day at Lambeau
April 4, 2012 at 4:13pm
Though his last day at Lambeau hasn't come (and time will tell for sure), this upcoming documentary intrigues me as to how the biographers will depict Brett Favre's final days in the NFL. Here is an early review of "Last Day at Lambeau... [Read more]
It Won't Change Outcome of '09 NFC Conference Game
March 23, 2012 at 12:01pm
Bounty-gate Justice The New Orleans Saints and all connected with the 'bounty-gate' conspiracy were taken to the wood shed in the worst way by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell. It won't change the outcome of the 2009 Conference Champio... [Read more]

Historical perspective is what I am getting with the 'divorce' of Peyton Manning from the Indianapolis Colts and how this equates and does not equate with the messy break up that was Brett Favre and the Green Bay Packers. Let me start by s... [Read more]
Bounty on Favre
March 12, 2012 at 10:24pm
Did the Saints cheat and should they be stripped of their Super Bowl title? Could the Green Bay Packers have fed the kitty to up the ante on their so-called 'traitor'? I have to take this blog out of retirement... A bounty?... [Read more]
Peyton and Colts = Favre v Packers?
March 12, 2012 at 7:17am
Hopefully, Packer fans will get a little historical perspective in the coming months as Colts owner Jim Irsay moves his chess pieces into position in hopes of removing $28 million from his payroll enroute to a big draft day. Peyton Manning might... [Read more]
Last entry
January 19, 2011 at 1:12am
I finally grew tired of tracking his season, his career and will make this my last entry. There's no use trying to be an apologist or find ways to shine a light on his career. If he comes back somehow next year, I might see a reason to resurre... [Read more]
Time To Call It A Career
January 19, 2011 at 1:13am
He gave it his all and it hasn't been good enough of late. Brett Favre can step aside now knowing he's been bested by father time and not feel ashamed. Most people his age cannot say they've achieved as much. Ironic that it is the G... [Read more]
What Now?
November 16, 2010 at 7:40am
Where do you find the motivation to move on? It seems like the season is lost, three games back in the division. Brett Favre has a host of injuries and it seems like the Vikings had spent their last gasp on that comeback against the Arizona Cardin... [Read more]
Favre Pressed For Reaction To Moss Dismissal

Moss Already Out In Minnesota
November 2, 2010 at 10:09am
It wasn't the fantasy pairing many thought it would be and now it is apparently over. With a quick trigger, the Minnesota Vikings coach Brad Childress has apparently sent Randy Moss to some other team's showers. http://profootballtalk.nbc... [Read more]

October 29, 2010 at 3:36pm
http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2010/10/29/report-childress-is-leaning-toward-tarvaris/ This would be a mistake and Childress is taking his job in his own hands if they don't get a win against the Patriots on Sunday. Most NFL analysts ... [Read more]

What Is Favre's Crime?
October 21, 2010 at 8:06pm
I'm trying to figure out if the NFL is really serious about getting to the bottom of these allegations against Brett Favre? What is his crime if sexual harassment charges are not being pursued? The victim in this is Favre's wife, first and... [Read more]
Favre's Streak May End
October 15, 2010 at 4:58am
Should I have added a question mark to the title of this blog entry? Just as I want to lure eyes to read what this is about, isn't it possible Brett Favre and the Vikings want to create a little doubt for their upcoming opponent in the Cowboys... [Read more]

October 6, 2010 at 7:37pm
The long awaited pairing of receiver and quarterback is no longer fantasy, but reality. Randy Moss' return to his old team in Minnesota seems to be the relief the Vikings need in their receiving corps. Questions still remain to be answered. Wh... [Read more]
Favre Bench Himself?
September 23, 2010 at 6:40am
Interesting theory offered up. http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2010/09/21/whitlock-offers-bold-favre-prediction/ I think there a lot of people out there who want to throw in the towel already. Let's wait to see how the game against th... [Read more]

The Viking Has Landed
August 17, 2010 at 9:57pm
To share here briefy. It seems a contigent from the Vikings went to Hattiesburg to pursuade their QB to make a decision to come back on the anniversary of his last unretirement and it appears to have worked. No one knows for certain if he's final... [Read more]
