I know, I know...about 3/4 of you are groaning right now, but bear with me.
According to this source, Brett Favre has already agreed to a contract with the Minnesota Vikings despite no official announcement. Maybe the no announcement has something to do with Brad Childress being off fishing in Alaska. Anyway, I came across this link via Pro Football Report which came to me via CHFF. What do you know, two sites I hate coming together to actually bring worthwhile news. Who woulda thunk it? Anyway, why, you ask, am I making a FanPost about this and wasting your valuable time? Well, 3 reasons come to mind:
1. I have a giant ego and love to be the first one to post news.
2. Since Favre is coming back, he is going to increase his consecutive games started streak even more, and we all know that that is one of the records that Peyton really wants to break (See, I linked it to the Colts.). Obviously, it's kinda hard to break Favre's streak if he won't ever GO AWAY. I was really hoping Peyton would be able to gain on him this year. (sigh)
3. The fact that this news is coming out means that we are very close to the end of this offseason's version of Favreapalooza. That is good news for everybody. The only event left to suffer through is the official announcent of Favre's signing, and that's going to happen very soon, especially since the information was leaked.
