Brett Favre stays retired
Brett Favre has finally made the right decision...he will remain retired and not taint his legacy (and spit in Packers fans' faces) further by playing for the Minnesota Vikings.
This is excellent news for Sage Rosenfels, who should have little trouble winning the starting job over the mediocre Tarvaris Jackson. Rosenfels has had a handful of solid statistical games as a replacement starter over the years, most notably for the Texans, who traded him to Minnesota this offseason. With the strong cast around him, Rosenfels could make some noise in fantasy circles this season. He might even crack my Top 10 sleepers list, provided he looks good in the preseason games.
Meanwhile, thanks for the memories, Brett. We'll do our best to forget those final games with the Jets.
