After ending the 2007 season for Green Bay with pretty much every passing record
in the NFL and a Super Bowl win under his belt, Brett Favre announced his retirement in a tearful press conference
. He later rescinded
his retirement to play for the Jets in 2008. Citing an aging body unable to stand up to the rigors of another season, he retired again
after last season. Despite rumors of moving to the Minnesota, he was still officially retired
as late as July. Well, not anymore
He’s back, and playing for the rival Vikings. Needless to say, the move has made him an arch- villain in the town
that built him into a legend.
I’m wondering if anyone else shares the opinion that this is some sort of deep insecurity of not being able to face up to a life of not being the ‘star quarterback’ anymore. At 39, with all of those records, a Super Bowl win, and a guaranteed spot in the hall of fame, what else could he be playing for?
