Brett Favre Hangs Up His Cleats, Throws On the Wranglers.
Looks like the only field Brett Favre will be taking this year is the sloppy mud pit he plays in with his friends when filming his awful Wrangler Jean commercials.
Brett Favre has finally called it quits, again, after half-way convincing the Minnesota Vikings that he would lace up and take a run at one more Super Bowl. With the Super Bowl in their sights and the players to get them there, the Vikings are only a quarterback away from being a serious NFC Champion candidate. But with Favre’s pull-out just days before training camp, the Vikes’ are left with Tavaris Jackson and Sage Rosenfels to compete for the starting role.
I guess it’s the correct time to thank Brett for all the years of entertainment and gun-slingin’…assuming he doesn’t return again. And it’s also the correct time to wish the Vikings luck with their current quarterback carousel. After current Vikings Antoine Winfield, Jared Allen, and Adrian Peterson called and harassed Favre to try and get him to throw on the purple jersey, that can’t leave Jackson and Rosenfels feeling too confident.
Nothing like having the support of your teammates when you have minimal pro football ability.
