NFL legend Brett Favre appears hell-bent on unretiring. Minnesota Vikings coach Brad Childress reportedly met with No. 4 on Wednesday. Meanwhile, Favre's agent, Bus Cook, was insisting that Favre is retired. Uh huh. Cook has turned into a master of helping NFL QBs move around. A few weeks ago, he put together Jay Cutler's escape from Denver for Chicago. When will this NFL national nightmare end?
The Clarion-Ledger's Rick Cleveland succinctly described the best policy when you're trying to figure out what Favre will do:
Forget the old saying that where there's smoke, there's usually fire. With Brett Favre, where there's smoke, there's a towering inferno.
No. 4 says he plays for the love of the game. What he really plays for is the love of the fame.
The Brett Watch has begun again.
Word is that this meeting never took place. Bus Cook acted as if he knew nothing about a meeting. But I told several people after Favre retired that I don't believe he is retired until I don't see him in someone's uniform during the NFL's opening weekend.
