Brett Favre could still play today, agent Bus Cook says

brett-favre-vikingsBrett Favre will be turning 44 next month and has enough gray hair to kill it in a “Just for Men” commercial. The Ole Gunslinger has not taken an NFL snap since he was with the Minnesota Vikings in 2010. Despite that, Favre’s agent Bus Cook believes the Green Bay Packers legend could still play in the NFL.

“Today, he could play today,” Cook said Monday night, via AL.com’s Tommy Hicks. “I saw him the other day. He’s in the best shape I’ve ever seen him in, physically.

“His arms look like a blacksmith’s arms. He rides a bike probably 30-50 miles a day. He runs four or five miles a day. He’s coaching at the high school and they’re undefeated. He loves it. His body fat is 7.5 percent and he weighs 225 pounds. He could play today, better than a lot of them out there today.”

Maybe Favre has seen what’s going on with teams like the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Jacksonville Jaguars, because it sounds like his agent is trying to sell a product. He could probably play better than a couple current NFL quarterbacks based on experience alone, but it’s ridiculous to think that Favre could be in his best shape of his career. He’s pretty much an old man.

Cook went on to talk about Favre’s passion for football and how he never played for money. He’s obviously just proud of his most famous client, but Favre’s NFL days are over. His next moment of glory will come when he has his jersey retired a Lambeau Field, which sounds like it could be coming sooner rather than later.

    Bring back Favre! We need more stud honcho quarterbacks and fewer girly backs!

  • Kevin D Timm

    Yep, we saw his abilities that last year with Minnesota…..

  • Ron

    Sure! There’s about 10 teams he could improve: Minnesota, NY Jets, Oakland, Buffalo, Tampa, Miami, Jacksonville, Cleveland, Arizona & Tennessee. In every case, he would probably be better than their current QB. The thing is, after 6 weeks or so, he’ll want to take his ball and go home, especially if it’s cold or rainy.

  • Ron

    If you go back and honestly evaluate his last year in Green Bay, he clearly didn’t want to be on the field for the 2 games against Chicago, and was even worse against the Giants in the NFC Championship – complete baby!

    Bring him back. I’d like to see him get jacked up again. Make me feel better about betraying the Packers and Packer fans.

  • doodfus

    he is done, get over this guy, all he wants is some little unsuspecting cheerleader or female staffer to fondle, he needs to be certified a sexual predator and cast out to stay in the woods where he can try and molest sheep or some other compatible animal, this guy is disgusting and it’s sick that he is even still in the news, the news should be that he should go away and leave it at that!

    I am tired of the non stop hate and non stop crap that is still being bashed on Brett. You people are nothing more then children hash over old crap and saying oh he betrayed us and bla bla bla. Al you people make me sick. I am tired of the non stop negativity. You people are nothing more then drama queens and you make me sick. If you read this carefully that is nothing more then his agent is just joking around. But he makes some very good points in pointing out that a lot of these new QB’s are nothing more then crap out there. Get over your self’s little children. That is all you people are to me!
