"It's great to have a person like that as my contact," Webb said.
OK, that's good Joe. Very true. Just stop there, right?
"He can still sling it."
The last thing this soon-to-be-post-lockout NFL needs is the notion that Favre could still play in the league. Those flames were fanned earlier this month when NFL.com analyst Gil Brandt said during a live chat, "I do think Favre would be interested in talking to a team about returning. But I don't see a team out there right now that would bring him back as a starter."
While we're still convinced Favre is done, history has shown us approximately 1,000 times that it's never a sure thing. Maybe Favre is trying to embrace the mentor role that never really stuck with him during his career? Couldn't you picture Favre and Webb on a high school practice field together, with Favre shouting at him:
"Joe! Completions are way more awesome when you force them through triple coverage!"
*Never say never.
