Re: Favre watch 2011?

I am actually surprised we haven't heard that the Redskins would be interested in signing him.

In Philly, he wouldn't have to play everyday, he may have a stretch of 2-3 games ,when Vick undoubtebly would get hurt, to play and keep the team afloat. Doesn't seem like a horrible move on their part.

Re: Favre watch 2011?

The connection is there between Favre and Andy Reid.

I do think that Brett would be completley comfortable with a backup role in the NFL at this point. If nothing else, it is a way to extend his career for a few more seasons if thats what he wishes.

But i think Philly is a difficult team because of the rabid fanbase. Say for example Vick gets hurt, Favre comes in and plays, and even if he plays great or just does enough to win, the fans rally behind him and now they have a QB controversy like last year.

OR, Vick starts playing bad, and the unhappy fanbase starts chanting "We Want Brett" or something like that. Remember in 2006, that backup Jeff Garcia played so well that fans wanted him to start in 2007 over Donovan McNabb. I think the eagles made a mistake by not re-signing Garcia that year, but it was largely due to McNabb's ego and hurt feelings.

Bottom line is i think he could be a distraction on any team if their QB starts struggling and they have the legendary gunslinger to turn to...

Re: Favre watch 2011?

I actually don't buy that he would have any interest in being a backup.

I'll 2nd that. After twenty years of being the man, I don't think his ego would allow him to ride the bench.

Favre - for the drama factor.
It would be off the charts.
This forum would go gonzoflakes!

If our line could protect him we may actaully have a .50 season.

Cant be any worse than when we signed Tony Banks.

Right after his first tweet that says he's contemplating coming back. As soon as there is contemplation with him, he will eventually succumb....

Re: Favre watch 2011?

It doesn't really fit with the Eagles' philosophy. They tend to move players on out of there at 30, so why bring someone (even Favre) in at 40.

bEagles QB's:

Rodney Peete until age 32
Koy Detmer until age 32
Jeff Garcia played two years, age 36 & 39
