Brett Favre to Eagles “Unlikely,” Vick Wants Him

Brett_favre
Oh what the fuck? Last night, I watched my first ever live soccer match (a thoroughly enjoyable experience) after seeing the Phillies (on TV) win a wild one against the Padres. A nice little Saturday, actually. All that was missing was some Home Depot and Bed Bath & Beyond.

What do I wake up to today? Tweets about Howard Eskin tossing Brett Favre's name into the NBC night [watch Howard's report after the jump].

Immediately this morning, beat writers fired back, saying it's unlikely Favre becomes an Eagle… but no one really denied the team's interest. Tim McManus has it covered: [Philly Sports Daily]

Possible, maybe, but indications coming into Philly Sports Daily are that a union between the Eagles and Favre is unlikely.

 

That didn't stop Michael Vick from chiming in:

Oh no. Are we really going to have to deal with this? Favre's brother earlier said there was less than a 1% chance Brett would return. 

From a football standpoint, this wouldn't be the worst thing in the world. With the high-likelihood of Kevin Kolb being shipped out of town when free agency begins next Saturday, it would be nice to see an adequate backup – not Mike Kafka – for Vick. But do we really want to deal with this discussion all month? I can just see it now: Ed Werder camping outside the NovaCare Complex, eagerly awaiting Favre’s arrival, as a helicopter hovers above Andy Reid's three-Tahoe motorcade from Philadelphia International. Fuck.

Eskin's report… after the jump.

  2. It’s thrilling. I’m joining the team that’s got the best record in all of baseball. Ya know, what can I say? You never know what you’re going to get when you play in that ballpark. Every time I’ve gone there, I’ve loved it. The Phanatic’s unbelieveable. The fans, they know baseball, they’re crazy, they throw hot dogs at you. You never know what’s going to happen and frigging Roy Oswalt might be in left field. So, it’s been a lot of fun.”
