Is There a Comeback in Brett Favre’s Future?

Posted by Noah Roush on May 2, 2009

Brett Favre is being talked about once again.  The 38-year-old quarterback, who last year retired, unretired, and retired again is now being talked about around the league.   Though it is not certain if Favre is making another one of his comebacks, it’s never out of the question with Brett Favre.


The quarterback,  who worked his way into our hearts in his last year with Green Bay in 2007, managed to work his way out quickly upon his return in 2008.  In 2007 Favre broke multiple records, including the record for most touchdowns thrown (442), most seasons in a row with 3,000 yards (16), passing yards (61,655), and wins by a starting quarterback (160).

Once we had all realized that Brett Favre could be one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time he retired from his long time team, the Green Bay Packers.  Though it was sad to see him go, we were happy that he could finally settle down and live out his life.

But, Favre was restless and had to comeback.  The Packers, who had already moved on from the “Favre Era” wouldn’t take him back and were forced to rid themselves of him.  He was sent to the Jets, and the rest is history.

Could Favre be making another comeback?  After starting well with the Jets last year his season went down hill, ending with the Jets not making the Play-offs at all.  Brett Favre went from being a favorite player of many fans to being a player that most hate.
