Brett Favre has only been retired a little more than a month, but already he's hinting that he'd be willing to return as the Packers QB under certain circumstances. Favre specifically cites a potential injury to replacement Aaron Rodgers, adding that if the Packers gave him a call then and said they needed him, "I very well could be enticed to do it."
Gee, who could have seen this coming? Usually Favre makes a quick, firm decision and never looks back.
Still, we're betting a Rodgers injury isn't the only conceivable path to a Favre comeback. Here's a (partial) list of things that could make Favre get off the couch and return to the field:
10. If Rodgers gets hurt, imperiling the Packers' season
9. If Rodgers starts slowly, imperiling the Packers' season
8. If Rodgers starts quickly, imperiling Favre's legacy
7. Applause strangely absent for lawn-mowing
6. A jealous Brett can't bear hearing John Madden go on and on about how much "fun" Tony Romo is having
5. No fans there to catch him when he leaps against the hedges to celebrate another top-notch clipping
4. He remembers there's nothing to do in Mississippi
3. Not even unlimited Sensodyne and Prilosec can numb the emptiness of leaving the spotlight
2. Who could possibly leave people who willingly wear the curds of soured milk on their heads?
1. He misses the bitter cold of a Green Bay winter
