Brett Favre comes back ... to 'NFL GameDay Morning'

As much as Bus Cook's "50 Shades"-like description of his client might tempt us to think otherwise, we must -- as a people -- face reality: Brett Favre is not coming back to the NFL.

The Ol' Gunslinger is done, trading in gridiron glory for life's simpler pleasures. A coach's whistle. A tractor. A nice-fitting pair of affordable dungarees.

Battista: Quiet before the storm
Peyton Manning has kept mum about his return to Indy. In her Week 7 primer, Judy Battista says this is bad news for the Colts. READ

Thankfully, Favre isn't totally off the grid. He stole the show during Super Bowl weekend in February, thanks to a well-conceived and executed "NFL Honors" appearance with Aaron Rodgers. Favre returns to NFL Network on Sunday, when he joins "NFL GameDay Morning" live from Oak Grove High School in Hattiesburg, Miss.

Set against the backdrop of Peyton Manning's return to Indianapolis, Favre will discuss what it's like to play against your former longtime team. He has experience in this field.

We'll be interested in what Far-vra has to say about Manning, though it should be noted the two likely future Hall of Famers share the same situation only in the broadest of strokes.

Favre was booed lustily when he showed up at Lambeau Field in 2009 as a member of the hated Minnesota Vikings. Manning, meanwhile, will be treated by Indianapolis fans as the beloved prodigal son returning home. Bank on it.
