Thoughts on Favre

I was just going to ignore the news articles, but the rumor seems to have taken over the sports media.
With his family "tugging" on him to play, Brett Favre has an "itch" to come out of retirement and report to training camp with the Green Bay Packers later this month, according to sources close to the team and player.

Favre has communicated his potential desire to coach Mike McCarthy but talks have not advanced to a substantive stage, a Packers source said.

Favre was reached on Wednesday by Mississippi's Sun Herald newspaper and tried to calm the storm.

"It's all rumor," he said of reports that he wants to return.
Oh, how I want to believe it's just a rumor. No matter how much I enjoy watching Brett Favre play, I really think he needs to stay retired. He had an amazing season last year, and that's a great way to go out. It's much better than, say, having a horrible season for his last season or, even worse, having his last play end with him being carried off the field and into an ambulance.

Al Harris said that Favre had "the itch." Well, duh. He's played football for the past 25 years (at least)- of course he's jonesing to suit up and head out with the team. And his brother says he's been working out. What else is he supposed to do?

I'm going to believe Brett Favre for now. It's just a rumor. I hope.
