Rams asked Brett Favre about signing and playing QB



quote:

For all the questions about whether the Rams would call Tim Tebow after Sam Bradford suffered his season ending injury, they didn't. They called a bigger name, higher-profile quarterback.

After the team lost Bradford to a season-ending knee injury, St. Louis called Brett Favre on Sunday night, asking if the 44-year-old retired quarterback who is now a grandfather, would be willing to leave his farm to plow through the back half of the Rams' schedule, league sources said.

Favre hasn't played since December of 2010, but that didn't stop the Rams from reaching out to Favre's agent, Bus Cook.

One source familiar with the Rams' conversations said that, if Favre took them up on their interest, "it could break Twitter."

Yet the man who famously wavered over whether to play too many times to count didn't waver this time. Through Cook, Favre told the Rams that he was retired -- actually, really, officially.

Favre said no. So that means he will be playing for the Rams against the Seahawks on MNF.

Are the Rams that desperate? No other options?

I don't blame him.

"Mr Favre, could you please come the final 9 games and get your arse handed to you constantly and throw the ball to......nobody?"

They obviously had other options, but they probably wouldn't mind giving the fans a reason to show up to the games.

ESPN broke this story.

Connect the dots, people.

Rams are a mess

they want to pound the ball, yet they went out and drafted WR after WR, and not 1 physical back. A bunch of spreadish type backs. And none of them worked, so they had to go with Stacey out of desperation.

Stacey is their #1, and he was a 6th rounder.

They pissed a lot of good picks away.

Brett's actually got a good gig going. He's the offensive coordinator for Oak Grove High School. Undefeated and number one in Mississippi right now

even though Favre said no and the topic should be put to bed, ESPN will devote the rest of the week to this

I'm surprised he didn't think about it with them still in contention for a wild card.
