Brett Favre: Chicago Legend

July 3, 2008

I have to admit I would LOVE to see on-again-off-again football legend Brett Favre in a Bears uniform. He has set SO many records in Chicago (granted, it was while he was playing on the opposing team) but his stats when playing the Bears in Chicago were intimidating — like he was playing at home.

Also, growing up a Bears fan I was MORE familiar with the Green Bay QB than most Bear QB’s. Brett Favre was the Packers starter from 1992 to 2007 — meaning I saw Brett play the Bears ~30 times from the age of 12 to the age of 27.

I would venture to say that in those 15 years, I haven’t seen ANY Bears quarterback play as much as I’ve seen Favre. So to me, Brett, despite not play for the Bears, is still THE iconic Chicago Quarterback for the last decade.

So, for the following reasons, the Bears need to sign Brett Favre:

  • To enrage Wisconsin
  • He’s a great guy
  • To enrage Wisconsin
  • He plays great at Soldier Field
  • To enrage Wisconsin
  • Otherwise the Vikes, or Texans, or Raiders will pick him up and that’s just gross
  • To enrage Wisconsin
  • The Packers have picked up TONS of former Bears including two for QB’s, AND our beloved radio announcer Wayne Larrivee. Taking back Favre would be what I like to call “The Reverse Tomzack” effect.
  • To enrage Wisconsin
  • So we can quickly retire Favre’s famed #5 Bears jersey, put him in the Bears Hall of Fame and forever enrage Wisconsin.
