So When Will Brett Favre Retire … And Then Return?

When will something like this scene be replaced ...

Now that the season is over for Brett Favre, there is one thing we know for sure: Favre will announce his retirement soon.

Actually, make that two things we know for sure: Favre will announce his retirement soon and then will back out of retirement this summer.

Everyone is speculating when all this will happen, so let’s play a little game of pin the date on the quarterback! Here are the facts:

Favre retired for the first time on March 4, 2008. Forty-four days earlier, he led his team to the NFC Championship game. But one horribly bad throw gave the opponent the opportunity to go to the Super Bowl with a field goal in overtime. Sound familiar?

He officially came back on Aug. 7 when the Packers traded Favre to the Jets for a conditional fourth-round draft pick.

The second retirement announcement came on Feb. 11. He had played his last game as a Jet 45 days earlier.

Favre officially signed a two-year, $25 million deal with the Minnesota Vikings on Aug. 18.

So, I think we have an idea of when this whole fiasco that is getting way too much attention will take place. As Favre is another year older, I think he will make his decision to retire a much sooner than usual. It won’t take him 45 or 44 days. That’s preposterous.

It will take him 42!! Yes, Brett Favre will re-re-retire on March 7, 2010.

Then we know he hates training camp. We’ll hear rumors of his re-re-return in June, but it won’t become official until some point in August. One main difference this year is that Favre won’t need to be cut or traded to play again. He still has another year (and at least $10 million) left on his Vikings contract. I’m sure he knows that very well. So that could expedite his return. We won’t need to waste our time with franchises talking about contracts or draft picks. Favre could just say, “I’m back” and he’ll have that second year waiting for him.

But again, not until August. Must avoid training camp! But when? I’ll split the difference from his two previous return dates and say that Favre will officially announce his return to the NFL on Aug. 13, 2010.

We already know what’s going to happen. Why not try to predict that upcoming future?

I think this would be the easiest offseason decision Favre has made in the past few years. He would be coming back to a title-contending team. He has another year waiting for him. His teammates want him back. The offense and the defense won’t suffer too much turnover. It’s made for Favre to come back for one more year, one final shot at glory.

And then he’s done for good. No, seriously.

... by something like this scene? I've got my guesses

    Really enjoyed this post. My whole thing with Favre is that while he’s completely frustrating, he’s allowed to be indecisive because he’s a lot better than the majority of quarterbacks in the league. Half the teams would take him even though he’s likely to cause headaches and sit out most of training camp

    Good luck to all the reporters making their way down to Mississippi to report Favre’s flip-flopping. http://vondrook.com
