    I think he would be a good fit in our spread packages and wildcat.
    Also, he is familiar with the 3-4.

    Good post!

    Yeah, we really need THE HOF veteran gunslinger in here to teach the youngsters how not to manage an offense efficiently and draw up plays in the dirt when watching film just puts you to sleep.

    That is true, but he might be a bit old to transition to playing defense. What position did you have in mind?

    He would fill the void left by Asante, and especially in cold situa... oh wait he THROWS the int's not catches them.

    I guess Mangini left a void at D-bag that he could fill.

    It sure would be a confidence boost for the rest of the AFCE, lol.

    He'll wind up with one more pitiful year in Vikings Purple.

    I hope he ends up facing the Packers as a Vik and Rodgers chucks 6 TD's in each game. That would be almost as awesome as watching the Pats in pre-season. ;)

    Well, Brady might not be 100% coming off an injury. Brett can compete for the starting role at camp. Either way we will have a vet back up that way.

    With the departure of Hobbs, there is a glaring need at Kickoff Return Specialist...Favre did have the luxury of studying under Desmond Howard for a few years, I say bring him in as camp fodder and see who prevails.

    You guys are all missing the point as to what his real value could be to the team. He could take away all the media attention from BB and TB with his weekly press conferences. They would alternate between whether he is going to retire again or whether/when he expects to take over the starting job from TB. BB would never have to speak to the media again!! This could definitely be "the best move for our team" by BB!

    Favre does fit a need. Since we lost Pioli this offseason, the Pats could use a QB who thinks he is the GM of the team and likes to tell the real GM who he should hire for coaches or sign/trade for with players. Favre here would take a lot of load off of Belichick's plate.

    Can he bring that speed off the edge as an OLB? I frequently hear his name associated with high sack numbers.

    I'd say bring him in and pick his brain about the Jets playbook, but it's pretty obvious he didn't know anything about it last year. :D

    As far as I know, he hasn't "officially" announced his retirement this time, has he? Favre looms in the ethers ... like a specter ...

    GUYS!

    This is a GREAT OPPORTUNITY for the Patriots!!!

    Think! How long has it been since you heard a Patriot say "I just went out there and had fun"?? THIS CAN BE THE YEAR. Football is a game, which is supposed to be fun. All of this seriousness by BB and TB is hogwash. All I ever hear is Brady talking about "working to get better". All I ever hear BB talk about is "winning" and "one game at a time". Favre can change the entire clubhouse mood! This is the best thing that could ever happen to the Patriots.

    The Pats have a very young secondary. What better way is there to have them boost their confidence than letting the gunslinger just have fun running the scout team. With all the picks he'll throw to Butler, Wheatley, Chung, etc. it will positively impact the team on Sunday.

    in 1996, you're talking about one of hte best of all time. Right now you're talking about a guy who, should he come back next year, may very well be the worst starting QB in the NFl.

    Is this thread about signing a starter? If you would rather have Gut on the sideline than Favre, then that is your opinion. The patriots are the team that signed and played Testeverde. If Brady want a veteran quarterback on the sideline to discuss the game with, then Favre is certainly an option. And yes, is there anyone better available to be the opposing QB in practice?
