Meryl Streep would knock that role out of the park. I even heard she has a pretty good arm.

Good article Tom.

Favre granted your not 100%, but just wait till week 8 and 75% of the NFL players will be joining you, playing with pain.

Just another columnist trying to portray himself as someone who knows Favre! Sorry Tom...you don't....and Favre is still pulling your chains...as he is every other media type...

I'm coming to the view that Favre was not going to return had not Allen, Longwell and Hutchinson made their pitch. Those guys would be persuasive: they want a Super Bowl ring before retirement and it's now or never.

Longwell, especially, understands the world because a heavily favored and excellent Packers squad lost the SB in his rookie year.

who cares why he came back and how it happened. All that matters is that he's here now and we're a better team with him. With him, we're a legit superbowl contender. Without him, we're a good team but probably not good enough to go all the way.

Its an extremely high percentage of fans and teamates that wanted Bret back, but how in the world can he possibly play in a preseason game this soon? Practice, rest and continue to heal up and get ready for the Saints.
