Should He Stay Or Should He Go?

Ah, another star caught in the dilemma of whether or not he should continue playing. Of course, this edition features Brett Favre. Perhaps one of the most beloved quarterbacks. Ever. Wants off the team that has made him a legend. This isn't the first time that a perennial hall of famer has wanted out of his city. A tussle with Jerry Krause comes to mind. And nothing is more tragic than a guy who has defined a city wanting to play for another team.

The favorites to receive Brett's services are Chicago, Minnesota and now Tampa Bay. It's scary to think of Brett Favre going to Minnesota. It would make the Vikings a favorite to reach the Super Bowl. But I can't imagine it. Seeing Favre in purple would send chills through my veins. It's almost as bad as Michael Jordan in Washington Wizard colors.

I didn't mind it when Emmitt left for Arizona, Shaq for Miami or Nash for the Suns. There are just certain players that should never be allowed to put on another uniform. Michael Jordan was one of them. Magic Johnson, Larry Bird, Jerry Rice, Mickey Mantle, John Elway and plenty of others. But Brett Favre is definitely one of them. Love them or hate them, they belong in their respective team colors.

So, I say he stays. Either in Packer colors or in retirement.
