Brett Favre, a for sure soon to be Hall of Fame player who spent almost 20 years of his life in the NFL, is set to make his return to the National Football League on Sunday, but not in uniform. Making his final appearance in 2010 for the Minnesota Vikings in a NFC North Division clinching game for the Chicago Bears; Suffered a season ending injury after being sacked by Chicago Bears defensive end Corey Wootton. In the age of Brett Favre, we have seen amazing come-backs, records being shattered and yes he caused most of us to pull our hair out as he picked a part our favorite teams.
Favre returns to the big stage once again, sharply dressed and a microphone in hand. Brett Favre will cover the Super Bowl tomorrow with the NFL Network. The man himself knows about getting the chance to call himself a Super Bowl Champion (Made appearances in Super Bowl XXXI/XXXII in which he won XXXI) will sit at the broadcast table with host Rich Eisen and former Super Bowl winners including Marshall Faulk, Kurt Warner, Deion Sanders, etc. Favre who says he doesn’t miss the daily grind, does miss the people involved.
Being a fan of the Chicago Bears, this man has drove me and my fellow fans crazy through the years. As soon as I heard that the Green Bay Packers traded Farve to the New York Jets, I was finally at ease. That is, well until he decided to retire and come back but this time in a Minnesota Vikings uniform. The man who refused to walk away from the game was once again in the NFC North. Leading the Minnesota Vikings to a 12-4 season and an NFC Championship game in which they lost in overtime against the future Super Bowl Champions, the New Orleans Saints. I hate so much for Brett Favre as a football player, believe me. I just believe he played for the wrong team. Nah, I am joking. It would have been nice to have Brett Favre but that card wasn’t in the deck and boy, did the rest of the league ever know it. One of the greatest Quarterbacks or even leaders to play the game of Football (or any sport of that kind) has been sent to the Pro Bowl 11 times. The man is a 5x NFC Player of the Year , 2x NFC Champion and is a part of the NFL 1900’s All-Decade Team. Topping off his NFL career with over 71,000 passing yards, 508 TD’s and 336 INT’s and a passer rating of 86.0. It will be good to see him once again. Happy Super Bowl Weekend everybody.
