At the sports desk: on the Brett Favre situation...

My take: many people are suggesting that Favre has horribly "waffled", why doesn't he stay retired, he's ruining his legacy, etc etc etc. They take the Packers' side in this.

But what about this: is the Packers' high command really doing what's best for the team? Look, if I recall correctly, Brett Favre led the Packers to a 13-3 record last season. They hosted the NFC championship game. They're right there. Ask yourself: who, should he start for the Packers this season in all 16 games, would win more games? Aaron Rodgers? Or Brett Favre?

I know the Packers have vowed to move on and be done with it, but isn't the NFL about winning now? Brett Favre can still win now.
Sports Illustrated's Peter King has a great wrapup of the latest buzz on the Favre situation here, by the way.
