Why are some people assuming this. My friend texted me saying it happened and I was like no, but now 3 or 4 people have posted about it on my FB. Where is this coming from?

If Farve was signed it wouldn't make any sense to me. Kubiak is behind Lienart, why bring him in? :vincepalm:

Please, no. I dig Favre's career, but it was obvious last season that he's got nothing left in the tank.

Some talking heads on B.S. PN were bouncing it around.

It means about as much as me asking "What is Kurt Warner doing right now?"

If Leinart is crap, then yeah, do whatever it takes to win. We aren't going to win a playoff game without a competent QB. If Favre puts us in a better position to win, then give him a shot.

You are the one who started a thread here, so it's coming from people like you passing it on and starting new threads.

While we are at it, how about: Sammy Baugh, Sid Luckman, Otto Graham, Red Grange, Jim Thorpe, Bobby Layne, Joe Namath, James Street, Bucky Richardson, Cliff Kingsbury, and David Klingler. Probably all better than Farve at this point, even the ones who are dead.

Ok, so here's how it goes down.

Richard Justice writes a blog post about what a bad idea bringing Brett Favre out of retirement would be. It's a well written article but only nine people read it and nobody talks about it so he goes back to work trying to whip up something more interesting.

Tomorrow afternoon an ESPN reporter who's known Brett for years arrives in Mississippi and gets Favre to start talking over a couple of beers out by the tractor. Knocking down a twelve pack they kick around the idea of Favre to the Texans for one more run.

"This team is STACKED!" says a heavily buzzing Brett as he goes inside to take a leak mumbling "Gotta drain my dick".

The even miore buzzing ESPN guy whips out his cell phone and texts "Favre to Texans, I think he said he was talking to Rick RIGHT NOW!".

Scrolling headlines appear on the bottom of the screen on ESPN and somewhere in the middle of Kansas John Madden feels a disturbance in the force. He gets up from his table and calls FOX Sports. "Prep the bus. It's happening".

Brett sleeps it off that night.

Justice says to himself "I KNEW they were gonna do that!"

The next morning 130 reporters are at Brett's farm with trucks and satellite dishes. Brett comes out a little hung over and decides to wing it (as usual). Unsure why everyone is in his front yard he grins widely and says "You fellas sure don't waste any time! What do you think about it?"

He knows this will start the reporters talking and expects to hear enough to clue him in to what's going on. This is after all exactly how he found out that he was a New York Jet.

In Houston Rick Smith's phone starts ringing at 5AM. ESPN is calling him and asking about Brett Favre. Rick doesn't know what to do so he calls Gary. Gary tells him "For God's sake don't let Bob hear about this" and then turns the TV on to see Bob Costas talking to Bob McNair live.

McNair has that blank but excited look on his face that people get when they know beyond any doubt that they just won the lottery but can't remember if they kept the ticket. He can neither confirm nor deny that the Texans are in discussions with Brett Favre. Not knowing what else to say Bob goes back inside his house and thinks "I don't know what to do. I'm gonna call Gary..... and get a bran muffin".

Richard Justice writes a blog entry about how much he wants to see Brett Favre come to Houston. Lots of people read it and point out that he's an imbecile in the comments that follow. Justice tries to find someone to call over at Reliant Stadium to ask if any of this is really true but nobody will take his call.

Back in Mississippi Brett has worked out that the Houston Texans are interested in his services and he starts saying all the right things because he feels wanted and validated by their pursuit. He's perfectly happy on the farm but he'll of course listen to what they have to say.

Brett starts throwing a football around. "Andre Johnson is one hell of a player" says Brett, "I've always wanted to play with a HOF wideout like Andre Johnson".

After thinking things over all morning Rick Smith has worked out that Brett Favre is interested in playing for the Houston Texans and meets with Gary, Bob, and "that other guy who's always there".

Together they decide that they don't need Brett Favre but it would be impolite not to hear what he has to say. The man is a living legend after all. There's no harm in speaking with him.

Two days later Brett Favre reports to Texans practice. He'll be starting against the Jaguars in a little over a week. He says he's in the best shape of his life and everyone politely ignores the spare tire he's added while eating pork rinds and watching football on TV. John Madden has parked the bus outside the Texans practice bubble and refuses to move it.

The Houston Texans are the center of the NFL world for the next 6 weeks. During that time the team goes 1-5 and finishes 8-8 on the year.

Justice writes a blog post about how he knew all along that bringing Brett Favre to Houston was a bad idea.....

LINK (http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2011/11/14/texans-should-give-favre-a-call/)

Yes, I believe the Texans should call Brett Favre. Though he has become a caricature, the analysis is simple: Would you rather have Favre or Leinart running your offense?

I don’t expect the Texans to call Favre, and I have no idea whether Favre would be interested. But for the past few years there’s been a vague sense that Favre would consider capping his career with a Roger Clemens-style partial season with a contending team that has a clear need.

Many will dismiss the possibility because we’re all sick of Brett Favre the man. But there’s no denying that Brett Favre the quarterback can still bring it. He has shown that he can get up to speed quickly, and if the Broncos can re-tool their offense quickly to suit the unique skills of Tim Tebow (http://www.rotoworld.com/player/nfl/5096/tim-tebow), the Texans surely can come up with a playbook that consists of healthy doses of Arian Foster (http://www.rotoworld.com/player/nfl/5469/arian-foster) and Ben Tate (http://www.rotoworld.com/player/nfl/5742/ben-tate) on the ground, periodic Brett bombs to Andre Johnson (http://www.rotoworld.com/player/nfl/1575/andre-johnson), and a smattering of short throws to Owen Daniels (http://www.rotoworld.com/player/nfl/3733/owen-daniels) and either Foster or Tate.

Coupled with one of the best defenses in the league, and in light of the fact that Houston is a fairly short flight from Hattiesburg, it makes sense.
It makes a lot more sense than trusting Matt Leinart.


This has got to be one of the most brazen attempts at shock "journalism" I've ever heard.

and the disturbing thing is some people are buying it!!

It wouldn't last that long. Favre, being his old, playful, locker room joker self will pop Cushing with a towel in after the first loss to Jacksonville - during which Favre threw 3 INTs, the last one being a pick-six which costs us the game. Cushing, still being in game day mentality, pulls Favre's head clean off while the rest of the defense holds him down.

The following week's gameday report only states that Favre missed a team meeting and is "on suspension for an indeterminant period". :D

No, it doesn't. Not in a million years. I'd rather them just bite the bullet and go with Yates before bringing in Farve

Jeff Garcia would be a better fit if you're gonna go "old timer". He has experience running something very much like what we do and he spent last year playing UFL so he's not quite as out of shape as Favre probably would be.
