The first time we saw today’s talk that Brett Favre wants to play in 2011, our first instinct was to ignore it.
By about the tenth time we saw it, we figured we at least had to mention it. So here goes.
On an NFL.com live chat today, Gil Brandt wrote that he thinks Favre would have an interest in playing in the NFL this season, but that there probably isn’t a team out there that shares Favre’s interest.
“I do think Favre would be interested in talking to a team about returning,” Brandt wrote. “But I don’t see a team out there right now that would bring him back as a starter.”
Everyone is sick of Favre comeback chatter, and everyone has been sick of Favre comeback chatter since about three Favre comebacks ago. But that doesn’t mean the chatter is going away, at least not until the regular season starts without a Favre comeback.
Which is one more reason to hope the regular season starts on time.
