Brett Favre is Returning

With the sting of last night’s Super Bowl still fresh, I figured I should write this blog so I can attempt to forget about football and move on with my life (for a little while at least). 

 Let’s talk a little about Brett Favre.  Ask most Packers fans what they think about Favre’s return and you’ll likely get a response, “We’re going to the Super Bowl!”  That further cements my claim that Packers fans are the most delusional group of people in sports today.  Don’t get me wrong, they love their Packers, but it is to the point that they lose touch with reality. 

In reality, Favre is not the same quarterback who won the Super Bowl back in 1997.  He’s not even the same guy he was two years ago.  This is a guy that had a worse quarterback rating than the awful Rex Grossman this past season.  Favre is now pretty average.  The stats don’t lie.

Does he still give you a chance to win every Sunday?  Definitely.  Will he make some plays that “only Brett Favre can make?”  No doubt about it.  But when it comes down to it, Favre coming back does anything but make the Packers instant contenders. 

So wake up Packers nation, you are getting the 38 year old version of #4 next season, not the 28 year old version.  I’m not saying the Packers can’t do good things with Favre at the helm, but he is not going to put them on his shoulders and carry them Super Bowl XLII.
