Give Favre a sword already

The ugly he said, she said divorce appears to be heading to a final separation with Favre possibly being traded to either the Bucs or the Jets – with the Bucs being the most likely primarily because they have a better shot at a Super Bowl in the short run.

The reason that Brett won’t be back for the Packers is pretty straight forward from Favre’s perspective:
Brett: "We're at a stalemate… So they can say they welcome me back but, come on, the way they've treated me tells you the truth. They don't want me back, so let's move on."

McCarthy: "[Favre's] feeling was, based on the path that took us to this point, that he wasn't in the right mindset to play here… The football team is moving forward. The train has left the station . . . I have to keep the train moving."
So it looks like the train will be boarding shortly and possibly taking Favre off to become a buccaneer [would a sword be considered a WMD?] It will be interesting to see how Favre deals with Gruden’s famous pirate scowl and passion. Favre and Gruden will be a case of passion meets passion – will the explosion be Super Bowl magic? Only time will tell.

Seems like it'll be either a miraculous Super Bowl performance or a complete disaster. Putting two huge forces of nature together--sometimes it's a beautiful rainbow, and sometimes it's an F-5 tornado. It'll be interesting, though, either way!

I like that rainbow vs. tornado - well said. Yeah, I guess time will tell. Gruden didn't seem to be interested in Favre when the trade discussions came up a month ago, but I know he admires Favre HUGELY and he will be an asset to the team. I think it's now a case of dollars and cents. Favre will be happier going to Tampa as opposed to NY because the Bucs play the Packers during the season. WOW, can you say ratings bonanza! BTW, I misspelled Favre and he came up on spell check. That has to be one of the indicators that you’ve made it BIG.
