File this rumor under 'S' for 'stupid': Brett Favre to make comeback in Carolina

In what appears to be the absurd machination of a beat writer in Minnesota, Charley Walters of the 'Twin Cities Pioneer Press' wrote simply: 

Don't discount the possibility of Brett Favre, who turns 42 in October, returning next season, but not with the Vikings. Maybe Carolina."

Respectfully, Walters has no clue what he's talking about on this one. It seems he needed a Favre story to chase away the lockout blues, so he took the names of all the teams needing a QB, pinned them to a dart board and happened to hit 'Carolina'. I don't doubt there could be grumblings of Favre 'getting that itch', but at this point his career has become like the the movie 'Groundhog Day', well... if 'Groundhog Day' was terrible, and had more full frontal male nudity. 

Fact is, if this was three years ago I might say "Maybe", after all Favre is a vertical QB with a big arm who would be a decent stop gap, but now? He makes more bad decisions than he does good ones, he's breaking down, not willing to attend a training camp and hellbent on turning his team into a media circus. I see no reason to think he has anything to add to the Carolina Panthers at this point.

Thankfully, Darin Gantt's not buying it either. When someone was dismayed at the drama #4 would bring he said: 

"Thankfully, I don't think we have to worry about it."

I hope so. Because though everything to me screams "No way in hell does this happen", even a 1/1,000,000 shot is enough for me to want to gouge my own eyes out with a pencil.

UPDATE: Gantt went to the team this morning and they immediately shot down the possibility. Read it here
