Reacting to a report that Brett Favre might unretire and join the Philadelphia Eagles as the backup to Michael Vick, some cold water of reason has been applied to the conflagration.
According to FOX Sports NFL expert Jay Glazer, a pair of Eagles sources informed him that it's an "emphatic no" to Favre, 41, coming back.
This came in response to an unconfirmed WIP radio report from Howard Eskin in Philadelphia.
Interesting thing, though, Michael Vick seemed to love the idea.
"I would be honored to have Brett Farve as a backup," Vick wrote on his Twitter account. "That will be amazing learning how to toy with defenses the way he did his whole career."
The odds of Favre playing again are extremely low, but he can never be completely ruled out because of his intense desire to play and tendency to change his mind.
Those closest to the legendary retired quarterback insist there won't be a third comeback after initially retiring in 2007 from the Green Bay Packers and then unretiring twice for stints with the New York Jets and the Minnesota Vikings.
"I would say there's less than a 1 percent chance," Scott Favre, Favre's brother, recently told the Biloxi Sun-Herald. "He is retired."
What about Favre's mother?
Well, Bonita Favre thinks it's laughable that her famous son would play in the NFL again.
"I would hope he would not do it," Bonita Favre said. "He is crazy if he does."
