Not so fast on the Brett Favre comeback.
Favre, thought to be open to another comeback, was never contacted by the Bears, according to the report, leaving the 42-year-old free to roam the land near his Hattiesburg home.
For better or worse, the Bears will stick with Caleb Hanie, fueled by a glimmer of hope that Jay Cutler's broken thumb will heal before season's end. Other (uninspiring) in-house options include Josh McCown and the irrepressible Nathan Enderle.
When Colt McCoy visited Favre in the offseason -- in an attempt to glean wisdom about the West Coast attack -- the Browns quarterback told stories of a breakfast table littered with âthe best pancakes in the world,â cooked up by Brettâs mother-in-law.
Really, if that's what Favre's waking up to each morning, before days hunting/fishing/brooding, how attractive is the prospect of suiting up for a Matt Forte-less Bears team in subzero conditions with the pressure dialed up to the max?
It's Farmer Favre for now -- and maybe forever.
