Holy shit. We're not gonna go through this again, are we? Over the weekend, a columnist for the Saint Paul Pioneer Press threw out the idea that Brett Favre could be returning to play next season, possibly with the Panthers. The Panthers quickly shot down the rumor earlier today and said they had no interest. But, uhhhhhhhhh....WE'RE NOT GONNA GO THROUGH THIS AGAIN, ARE WE? If so, maybe we wouldn't be so broken up about a season-ending NFL lockout after all. [via Shutdown Corner]
