Not your average 40-year old

I’m sitting here watching ESPN and they’re doing a segment about Brett Favre and they’re analyzing how he’s been so effective in the Vikings’ Offense.  Then it hits me.  This man is absolutely amazing!  Sure, Brett might have gotten himself a bad rap for waffeling this summer when he was trying to decide whether to retire or not, but in the end, he landed a great deal in Minnesota and he’s happy being where he’s supposed to be:  on the football field.

The year Brett is having defies nature.  At 40 years old he is one of the top three quarterbacks in the league and week after week he and the Vikings have found a way to win to hold a 6-0 record thus far in the 2009 season.  Mike Sando over at ESPN even placed Brett towards the top of the MVP watch list.

I don’t know about you, but everytime I see a 50-yard laser come from Brett’s arm land perfectly into the arms of the receiver downfield, I shake my head in awe and wonder how he does it.  Keep it up Brett.  You’re giving us a great show.
