Brett Favre May Play Until He’s 50

70 23

Makes me laugh.

Because frankly, we have nothing better to do at the moment — and neither does the national media, who NEED some sort of Brett Favre story, while they wait for Brett Favre to tell them Brett Favre is going to play in 2010 — we’ll bring you this.

Minnesota Vikings quarterback Brett Favre says maybe he’ll play until he’s 50.

“Hell, you gotta quit sometime,” Favre said. “Then again, maybe I will be doing this when I’m 50 years old, who knows?”

Not you. That’s for sure.

This was part of USA Today’s latest piece on Favre, which looked at whether the quarterback will come back this season.

Hint: he will.

However, the ankle Favre had surgery on this offseason may limit him for however long he decides to play. The main question then, is how much the injury limits his mobility and his effectiveness.

“I wake up in the morning, your feet hurt and the rest of you feels like (expletive deleted), you know?” Favre says. “The ankle still feels like it did before surgery. As the day goes by, it loosens up a bit. But I keep telling myself, ‘Hey, you’re 40. You have had three (ankle) surgeries, so you ought to pretty thankful it’s not worse than it is.’ “

I can think of a few people who’d love to see a statuesque Brett Favre standing in the pocket, not able to avoid the oncoming pass rush.

Since Favre can’t make a decision about his future, maybe someone can make it for him — kind of like Lawrence Taylor decided Joe Theisman’s future.

    Nahhh. I just want the Packers to kick his ass and thoroughly demoralize him. I want Rodgers to out perform him and I want the offensive line to make Jared Douchebag their bitch. I want Favre to limp off the field, head down, ego bruised beyond recognition.

    Yeah, maybe I’d like to see Matthews and Barnett do a few sack dances and Woodson pick off a pass or three. That would be nice, as well.

    Let the Bears do the leg breaking. This way, they become the target of the media’s venom when they realize their boy toy may be done.

      You got be joking!Favre made the Packers look like kids last year.The only time a Packer touched Favre was after the game when they were all trying to shake his hand and maybe get a picture with him.Head down,confused
      and lost is how I felt when the (SOB)TT kicked the only good thing we had left in Green Bay..
      Favre is a winner………………..

    Will you be laughing when Favre is 50 and 22-0 versus GB and your shaggy Berkeley hippie quarterback has already retired? I know I will be.

      Wow, Just when I thought the bottom of the barrel had been scraped clean, you Queens fans find a new depth of stupidity.

  3. jeff ircink

    the stupidy, jeremy, is found in those who take any stock in Favre saying he’d play until he’s 50.

    Favre can play until he’s 60, but he’s never gonna win a Superbowl with the Queens ever. period. Meanwhile Aaron Rodgers will be fresh of his 3rd SuperBowl and 2nd SuperBowl MVP in 2020.

  5. ssssssssssssssllllluuurrrpp..haha..jeff swish that shit around in your mouth and get a good taste…as that is the only feeling the Minnesota Vikings are gonna leave you at the end of the season

    Monty – this is such an obvious post to get the comments rolling. I love it!

    My .02 is that when Favre hits the wall, it won’t be pretty. They say the legs go before the arm. Whether that’s true or not is probably a case by case basis. Favre has to fade at some point. As a fan of the Packers, my hope is sooner rather than later. If he can’t avoid the rush, he’s road pizza. No way he goes gracefully into retirement. It’s just not his MO. While I don’t wish that anyone to be seriously hurt, it’s like the dude wants to go out on a stretcher just to put the exclamation point on his career.

    I stand by earlier comments that there will be little conservative game planning against the Queens this year. They’ll be out to get him. After all, it worked for the Saints and that conservatism is what allowed Favre all day to sit back and pick us apart.

    Well said.

    Also, who is Matt Fox?

    Favre is legendary and has a cemented legacy no matter what the outcome of the upcoming season (SPOILER ALERT broken bone ends his career in week 10 against the Bears).

    The cool thing is that Rodgers has the opportunity to be better than him in at least one major category – SB wins (or simply appearances).

    Vikes still suck!

  9. jeremy

    Is Favre really that great…..not really, how many times has that man turned the ball over? well I can’t count that high myself but I know its a lot. Now Favre is good but he’s a risk and the Minn. is not only taking a chance with him playing this year but what are the odds that he’ll blow it again. Thats a bet I would take.

    You guys talk A LOT of shit for a team that got their ass kicked by this guy who “sucks” and a starting qb who has no playoff wins. Maybe you should chill out for a bit until you actually win something. Like a division title. Or even a playoff game. I guess the guys with the smallest dicks talk the biggest shit. :) Enjoy your season!
