Readers, why should Brett Favre return to NFL?

Mon, Jul 25

The NFL is coming back! And we all know what "NFL" stands for, right?

The National Favre League.

Come on, it's what you want, right? The rumors are already out there about the Philadelphia Eagles being interested in having Brett Favre serve as the clipboard quarterback behind Mike Vick. And Vick tweeted that he loved the idea -- although apparently that tweet later disappeared. Maybe he realized that it's been impossible to keep Favre off the field.

Whether Vick really wants Favre as a teammate or not, you can't forget Brett. He's as much a part of the NFL as a new CBA. That's why no matter what the subject of our weekly reader-generated Top 10 list, Favre always gets mentioned. And that's why it seems right to focus of Favre now that the NFL appears to be days away from being back in business.

Thus this is our list: "Top 10 Reasons We Need Brett Favre."

As for coming back to the NFL, you know he will. After all, the league is named after him.
