As the neverending saga of Brett Favre and Michael Vick unfold, I look back at all that's happened in the months since the 2008 season ended and asking myself "so what's new"? Here are the facts...
-Brett Favre was released by the Jets.
-Brett Favre is retired.
-Michael Vick was released from jail.
-Michael Vick has not been reinstated by the league.
Now all I've heard the past several weeks is the speculation surrounding Favre and the Vikings and the teams that are not interested in Vick (is this really that surprising?). But where's the news? So far, Brett is still retired and Michael Vick has not been reinstated into the NFL. Unless the status changes for both, I really don't want to hear about Favre seeing a specialist about his shoulder or seeing Vick leave prison from three different camera angles. How does this pertain to what's happening in the NFL? Here's what I want to see happen before anymore "news" about Favre and Vick.
1) Favre signs with the Vikings (or another team).
2) Vick is reinstated by Goodell.
Now that's news. From now until then, everything else in between just does not matter.
