While many people are discussion with excitement about Brett Favre’s ankle surgery and his possible return, former New Orleans Saints quarterback Archie Manning said it was nothing new to him as he always believed that Favre would return to the Vikings for 2010 season and the surgery was just expectable.
Watching 40-year-old Favre lead the Minnesota Vikings to the NFC championship game against his former team New Orleans Saints, Archie Manning saw Favre’s potential to continue with his brilliant performance even if he is older than most of his teammates and some coaches. Although the Vikings finally lost the NFC title to the Saints after the overtime loss, Archie Manning still believed that Favre could lead his team to win if the two teams rematch when the quarterback is 100 percent healthy.
The rematch is really going to happen in early September for the 2010 NFL season opener. Since knowing the schedule, Archie Manning has had the belief that Favre would return to make the revenge on Saints. He will prove that he is still able to win a Super Bowl ring at an NFL retirement age. As a former star quarterback himself, Archie Manning knows well what Favre is able to do with a strong sense of honor. As for the time of Favre’s retirement, Archie Manning joked that he is not expecting Favre, originally a Saints fan, to put on his favorite Archie Manning jersey watching others playing football in near future.
