Brett Favre Coming Back Again

Rumors have circulated that Brett Favre is once again coming out of retirement.

The rumor was that the Philadelphia Eagles were intrigued by the notion of bringing Favre in to back up/mentor Michael Vick. Favre, who mentors to nobody. Vick, who just got free of Kevin Kolb looking over his shoulder. The Eagles, who have created/fostered more than their share of drama over the past five years -- enough to make them seem like Cowboys East.

The rumor was so noxious that the Eagles dismissed it with great vigor and verve almost as soon as it saw daylight, and normally teams like to let a rumor that has some link to reality marinate in the sun to see how the customers like it. In short, no Favre to the Eagles.

But the more troubling fact remains that of all the possible story lines to open the new era with, we got an old, hairy, bloated one that frankly we should have been done with long ago.
