What a difference one freakin’ day makes.
Last night at this time, we all had assumed that Rick Schwartz of Yahoo! Sports had fashioned for himself a Jay Glazer moment, popping out of a Punxsutawney pantry and putting to rest the lingering question of whether it would be six more weeks — and longer — of the winter of Brett Favre’s career.
Now, Jeremy Schaap of ESPN reports that, if Favre doesn’t need “major surgery” on that arm injury that some think was merely an excuse for Favre’s diminished play down the stretch last season, Favre will unretire and play for the Vikings.
We’re not quite sure how Schaap got this scoop, given the small army of NFL reporters and bloggers residing on the Bristol payroll. But we’ll give Schaap the benefit of the doubt over Schwartz, given that we have heard of Schaap.
