Bus Cook is Firing Up the Brett Favre Rumors Again

Brett Favre

Hey, did you know that Brett Favre could play in the NFL right now? Well, now you do.

Favre’s agent, Bus Cook, while insisting he wasn’t saying Favre is going to make another comeback, insisted that Favre could play in the NFL today.

“Today, he could play today,” Cook said Monday night before his appearance as guest speaker at the New Horizons Credit Union-1st & 10 Club meeting at Heron lakes Country Club. “I saw him the other day. He’s in the best shape I’ve ever seen him in, physically.

“His arms look like a blacksmith’s arms. He rides a bike probably 30-50 miles a day. He runs four or five miles a day. He’s coaching at the high school and they’re undefeated. He loves it. His body fat is 7.5 percent and he weighs 225 pounds. He could play today, better than a lot of them out there today.”

Brett Favre is coming back!

Well, he probably isn’t, but this is how it’s always started. Cook would go out and make some seemingly innocuous statement about how Brett can still play and then pretty soon… Brett’s back in the NFL.

Hey, I know a team that needs a quarterback — the Minnesota Vikings.

    Cook and Bert Favre, reminds me of a ventriloquist and his dummy. Except in this act, their both dummies.

  2. Intimidating Cheese

    Why is all major franchise legends sign one day contracts to retire with their team but Favre has not… He must of like being on the Viqueens a whole lot more then us!!!

    You know what? If Brett went to say Jacksonville or Tennessee or a team like that, basically anyone other than Dallas, Giants, Jets or a divisional foe, id fucking root for the guy and would tune into his games just to watch him play.

    I know call me a fucktard but hey, I miss seeing the guy throw the rock…

    I have read comments from several Viking fans on nfl.com today seriously considering and wanting his return. They haven’t learned the pattern yet, I guess.

    Rodgers is pretty much better across the board. Granted Favre has more playoff wins and some may think he is better in the clutch but I disagree Rodgers comebacks seem to be stalled by dumb play calling ,shitty kicker (crosby) or dropped passes (jfin), Sometimes it is his fault (swatted balls), sometimes not blatant facemask not called after fumble pickedup (cardinals game few years back).

    As for the ironman shit, under today’s rules favre would be lucky to play 8 games a year.

    Jeff irncink’s asshole just got wet.

      I’ve been singing that song for awhile…In almost every aspect, Rodgers has outperformed Favre in a year to year comparison of production. So, with that said, if Favre is a legend, what is Rodgers?

  6. PF4l

    Keep in mind, when Favre was playing, he had a solid O line. With Tauscher and Clifton anchoring the tackle positions. Not the joke of a line they have been providing Rodgers.

    Oh for Christ sake already, stop the QB comparisons between Rodgers and Favre. They are both different, but great great QB’s and we have been blessed to have them both. It will go down as the best back to back QB’s of all time. If you are a true packer fan, it’s like asking you which of your parents you like better. Yes, yes, Favre cheated on your mom and they got divorced and maybe even screwed your mom’s best friend, but at the end of the day he was family and we had a damn good run with him. We can say the same great thing about Rodgers (minus the divorce, but his career is young) and he is on his way to be maybe the best ever. Why don’t we wait until the end of his career, if you really feel the need to make comparisons?

    In your analogy…He played for us, that makes him family…I guess he’s family with the Jets and the Vikings as well.

  10. Nick

    Sure, family for a year or two versus family from 1992 to 2007. It’s a business bro, get over it, does your boss decide when you stop working?

  11. pf4l

    Awe….Farve wasn’t told to stop working. He asked to unretire and come back, TT said ok, but that he’d have to battle Rodgers for the starting job. Favre wanted no part of it, so he grabbed his marbles and asked to be released……..Stop whining and learn some facts.

  12. Nick

    Well, it would help if your facts were right.

    1. TT had to take Favre back if Goodell signed his request for reinstatement.
    2. Favre was told the starting job was not open for competition. They had already decided AR was starting QB. TT’s best move of his career by the way.
    3. They offered him 20 million dollars to stay retired and take a non-player lifetime role within the franchise.
    4. TT refused to trade him to anyone within the division or NFC contender.

    Hmm, that sounds like a forced retirement if you ask me. TT made the right choice, but I don’t fault a guy for wanting to continue to play football. And, to Favre’s credit, his old ass kicked the crap out of us in 2009. I just don’t get why people are so bitter about it. It’s a business.
