Let me repeat that.
Howard Eskin of WIP radio in Philly reports that the Eagles could sign quarterback Brett Favre as a backup to Mike Vick, after Kevin Kolb is shipped out of town.
Sources told Eskin, who serves as a sideline reporter for the teams radio broadcasts, that its possible the Eagles will sign Favre.
The move would reunite Favre with Andy Reid, who was an assistant with the Packers before becoming a head coach in 1999.

What a frickin joke he has become.
Report also says he contacted the Seahawks about being their starter and was turned away.
And the Vikes are looking at a former Eagles QB ??
And they said that Green Bay were idiots for letting him go...
We see where Green Bay is now dont we.
No. No it can’t be true. This is the second worst sports news I have ever read on FR. The worst being when it was reported Harry Kalas died. I said it wasn’t true that day, too, but as it turned out it was.
I love the Eagles.
I hate Brett Farve.

LOL. The picture they’re using isn’t even Favre.
I was looking forward to a season of Farve not making an embarrassment of himself.....he is the prime example of how not to retire, play, retire....etc.
I hear that Y. A. Tittle is available.
We got a hell of a Q’back now. Maybe not as durable, but the guy has a lazer for an arm. That one touchdown he threw in the Superbowl was amazing. One inch one way or the other and it would have been knocked down.
Cripe. Brett is/was good but he should stay retired. Andy Reid should retire, too.

I wish he would stop. Even as a Pats fan, I loved Brett Favre. He had always seemed like such a nice guy. But each year I lose more respect for him as he clings so desperately to a life he should really move on from. There a so many other ways he could stay in football, but he just refuses to admit his playing career should be over. Plus, the more he does this, the more dirt people will try to dig up him so they can watch him fall, which will only harm his family.
I was never a Favre fan. He has raw talent, but is not very smart, IMO. Sure, he has some great games; but he also has some of the worst games of all time. He's always had a tendency to scramble too much and try to pull a play out of his a$$. Sometimes they work; sometimes they translate into 6 interceptions in a game. Tony Romo reminds me of Farve. Raw talent; not very smart.

Now that’s FUNNY!
While I agree with you that Brett probably should have stayed retired, the fact of the matter is that regardless of his past trials, he is still a better quarterback then half of the ones that will start next season. That and the media’s desire for anything that will get people to notice them will keep Brett in the sports news for quite a while.
