Lance Briggs eager for Favre to return, throw interceptions

lance-briggs-brett-favre.JPGYou may not have heard about this, but there's some drama surrounding this Brett Favre guy and his potential return to the NFC North. If the longtime Packer and potential Viking needed any extra incentive to come back, he'd have to look no further than some recent comments by Bears linebacker Lance Briggs.
NFL Network's Solomon Wilcots reports:

"He's going to hurt you, but he's also going to throw you a few," said Briggs. "He threw me the first interception I ever returned for a touchdown in the NFL."

Briggs went on to say that defensive players with the Bears are more conscious of Favre's all-time interception total than the fact that he's also the league's all-time touchdown leader.

"We know he's going to throw us a few," said Briggs. "He's thrown me a few, but I've also dropped several that I should have caught. We'd love to see Favre go there to play. We'd welcome it."

LANCE WHO,DOES HE PLAY FOOTBALL OR BASKETBALL WHO IS THIS BRIGGS FELLOW ANYWAY WHAT HAS HE EVER WON? A SUPERBOWL?NO 3 TIME MVP OF NFL?NO,BUT HE HAS A INT AGAINST BRETT FAVRE.WHO HASNT HAD ONE THAT PLAYED DEFENSE IN THE NFL AGAINST FAVRE.IF I AM NOT MISTAKEN FAVRE HAS LIKE A 75 PERCENT WINNING PERCENTAGE IN CAREER WHEN HE PLAYS THOSE OVERRATED BEARS.

First of all, learn to properly use English punctuation so that at least your terrible points make sense.

Who is Briggs? Arguably one of the top 3 linebackers in the NFC over the past 3 years.

Sure, Favre owned the Bears for a very long time. But over the past four years or so, the Bears have owned him. Right now Favre is washed up. By the way, Briggs has two INTs returned for TD's against him. The second being a literal Christmas gift that all but wrapped up the game where the Bears clinched the division in the Pack's house.
