Brett Favre began to inform Vikings officials Monday night he will not return for his 20th season, according to the Minneapolis Star-Tribune and Jay Glazer of FOX.
Now I was going to call shenanigans on this when it was JUST the Star Tribune and NBC Sports, but if Jay Glazer is reporting this then it has to be legit. Everyone knows Jay Glazer sercretly runs the NFL. Everyone. Like all that guy does is promote MMA and write story lines for the NFL. Dude must have John Clayton lying awake at night trying to figure out how he is getting beat to every story. It wouldn't shock me if David Stern has Glazer doing some freelance work for the NBA. Like that LeBron fiasco has Jay Glazer written all over it. Even got Jim Grey to do the interview to avoid suspicion. Genius. So if Jay Glazer is saying this is legit than you can believe it. Not to mention I would never put something on this blog that I didn't believe to be accurate. Like when I posted that food porn blog I made sure that EVERY item of food on that website was hardcore enough to be there. My journalistic integrity is at stake/I want to avoid getting a phone call from my mom when I'm wrong about something.
In all seriousness if this is true do the Packers even have to play the regular season? Like can they just wait for the playoffs and start their season then? Because make no mistake about it, the Vikings were our only competition in that division and one of maybe three teams that will be there with the Pack contending for the Super Bowl at the end of the year. So if Tavaris Jackson is their starting quarterback and Adrian Peterson is still dropping footballs like I drop wrestling references then this divsion is going to be a cakewalk.
PS: Is it possible that Brett Favre has been a secret double agent for us? Making the Vikings contenders only to giftwrap an interception in the NFC Championship game, breaking the hearts of Vikings fans, and retiring the next year making the Packers the favorites in the division? All the while uncovering the secret behind Da Vinci's paintings and solving the oil spill? New Dan Brown novel coming in 5....4....3....
Double PS: This never gets old:
