Stick A Fork In Me, Jerry, I’m Done

kramer-turkey I really have nothing to add here regarding the news that Favre will meet with Vikings head coach Brad Childress at an undisclosed location this week to discuss whether the Gunslinger will un-retire again and play for Minnesota, so let’s see what others have to say:

“Where there’s smoke, there is fire, and there’s no question that Favre at this point has a desire to comeback, and the Vikings need a quarterback – any questions?” [Vikings Gab]

“However, I’ve also acquiesed to the fact that if Zygi Wilf and Rick Spielman and Brad Childress want to bring Favre here and think that he can improve the team in some way. . .then there really isn’t a damn thing that I can do about it.  I’m not saying I’d like it, and I’m not saying I’m for it right now. . .largely because, as I said, I’m not sure if I’m for it right now or not.” [Daily Norsemen]

“This year, the idea of Favre in Minnesota is actually real. But instead of getting a guy with some childish enthusiasm that New York got last year, the Vikings will be left with a bitter old man with a bum shoulder on his last legs.” [Lombardi Ave]

“Whatever hard feelings exist between Favre and the Packer front office are still quite strong.  The Vikings are bitter rivals and seeing Favre suit up in one of those hideous purple uniforms would be especially insulting to fans in Green Bay.” [Packers Gab]

“Just do us a favor and stay retired Brett. Heck, just don’t even show up on our televisions for ten years. Hang out in your Wranglers and ride your John Deere around in Mississippi, just please stop annoying us. Outside of the Vikings organization and fan base, ESPN for ratings, and the NFL because this talk of you gets the league so much absurd attention, nobody wants you back.” [Sharapova’s Thigh]

Indeed.
