Thought of the Day 5/26, NFL: New Orleans Saint Darren Sharper Proposes to Help Brett Favre Retire

While NFL fans await further news on the continuing soap opera that is Brett Favre and his lack of commitment to retirement, Saints' safety Darren Sharper has given all of us Favre-haters a reason to actually root for his return.

Last Friday, Sharper commented on Favre's probably return and the opening game for the 2010-11 NFL season, which will pit the Saints against the Vikings on Thursday September 9. Sharper said: "Well y'all seen Brett had surgery on that ankle we got after in the championship game. Come Thursday night 1st game. X marks the spot."


I just want to thank Darren Sharper for at least claiming that he will attempt to rid the NFL of its melodramatic, egomaniacal, and (often) tear-doused, camera-loving diva. Sadly enough, I used to respect Favre, aside from my Bears-driven hate for him, but since this retirement carousel started a few seasons ago, the man has become more and more despicable in my eyes.

You can't change what Favre has done for the NFL or the things that he has accomplished, but I'd like to remind Viking fans just how much they once hated Favre, and that his return this year will not get them to the Superbowl.

The time has come for Favre to leave, and if that takes Sharper threatening him months before the kickoff of the NFL season, I'm fine with that. If that's not enough, then I look forward to Sharper making good on his offer and helping Favre retain some amount of respect in a career that is quickly losing it... by injuring him right out of it.

  • I am shocked at your endorsement of deliberate assault. For that matter, I haven't gotten over the seven teeth thing yet.

    Haha I like this. That would be awesome if he did make good on his promise. If I was Favre I would be iffy on a return.
