We weren’t even going to post anything about the latest rumors involving the Miami Dolphins. Why? Because there is no basis whatsoever to them. Yes, we post Dolphins rumors on PhinNation.com, but only when they make sense or have some possibility of happening. What unfolded this afternoon was absolutely insane (some of it is still ongoing). For those of you that don’t know what in the heck I’m talking about, Brett Favre has been connected to the Miami Dolphins by certain media outlets. Why? WE HAVE NO IDEA. Here’s what’s been happening:
This morning, Dave Hyde of the Sun Sentinel posted a story about why the Dolphins should reach out to Brett Favre to help their QB woes. I immediately threw up on my computer from the thought of it….Many Dolphins fans agreed with me. We didn’t think much of it, until a a reporter asked Tony Sparano if Favre was a possibility for the Dolphins…Tony replied that he “wouldn’t rule anything out”.
Well that set off a firestorm on Twitter and across the internet. Of all sources, I actually agree with Armando Salguero on this one! How can you take an unsubstantiated thought in an article, combine that with a coaches comment and make a headline out of it. But there it was, spreading like wildfire…..Pro Football Talk had a story…so did USA Today. By this time, my eyes were starting to bleed from the sheer nonsense of this all. After all, Brett Favre is 41 years old, stunk last year, and is retired…..like fully retired, not “I might come back, retired”…..but I guess with him you never know.
Thankfully, just a short time ago, Favre’s agent cleared everything up for everyone about the Dolphins/Favre talk…He even compared Favre to Elvis:
Can we now please stop with all of this nonsense? On the bright side, it may have distracted the main stream media enough to get them off of Chad Henne’s back for a little while!
