USA Today's Michael Hiestand discussed the possibility of the former Packers great replacing departed dancing king Emmitt Smith in his column yesterday.
"Signing the supposedly retired Brett Favre would bring in a star. Norby Williamson, ESPN executive vice president, says ESPN hopes to meet with Favre next month: "He's a funny, dynamic guy and would add to anybody's coverage."
On the other hand, Favre's back-and-forth retirement saga the past year or so has probably turned some football fans off. And then there's the unavoidable seething disdain that would come from NFC North fans in places like Chicago, Minnesota and Detroit.
Personally, I'd like to see him and John Madden paired up on NBC, if only to keep Frank Caliendo relevant. (Big Caliendo fan.)
So, what say you? You want to see Favre breaking down game tape or should he stay away?
