Brett Favre’s Possible Return To NFL Doesn’t Say Much About Present Quarterbacks
Brett Favre is in the news once again as the St. Louis Rams made the laughable decision to contact the future Hall-of-Famer. He’s not coming out of retirement no matter how much the media wants him to so that they can have a story.
The main story here is about Favre returning. But the bigger story is this: what does it say that an NFL team is willing to bring a man in his 40s out of retirement, and not look at the current landscape of quarterbacks in the NFL? What does it say about the Rams’ backup quarterbacks? Rams head coach Jeff Fisher looks desperate as well.
All this time I have heard about how the NFL is currently in the “golden age” of quarterbacks with Russell Wilson, Roberth Griffin III and Andrew Luck getting all of the headlines these days. Yet we must remember that Blaine Gabbert is allowed to start with the Jacksonville Jaguars.
The NFL is still facing a shortage of quarterbacks, no matter how many times the league favors the rules to make the offense’s job of scoring easier.
Is there a cause for concern for the league? I’m not sure about that. The fact of the matter is this is why the top quarterbacks get paid. It still comes down to actual talent. When people complain about Joe Flacco and his contract, talent like that is not found the street. That’s just the way it goes.
Have more appreciation for the Flacco’s of the world, and the possible return of Favre won’t be a big deal as some make it out to be. As for the Rams, they can keep walking because Favre is not walking through that door.
