And while Michael Vick should certainly be considered as part of the world, he bears singling out. You know the rumors of Brett Favre “not saying anything” about going to Philadelphia as a backup have to be at least irksome and at most downright disturbing.
Can you imagine the outcry from Philly fans the first time Vick limps back to the sideline after tossing an interception? For the rest of the NFL (read as: the civilized fans) it would almost be worth it. But no. It’s not.
One hopes Brett Favre has finally retired for good. I mean it. The act is beyond old, beyond tired. Stay down, Brett. Stay down there in your backwoods Mississippi paradise, driving your tractor in your Wranglers.
