    I think Favre would immediately improve that O-Line. Right now most teams can send 8 at Boller or McNair because they both stink and they are not threat to beat you passing. Put Favre back there and all of a sudden defenses can't send 8 which gives the O-Line plenty of time to do their job.

    I don't necessarily think Favre is thinking of ANY SPECIFIC team..... I've heard Tampa mentioned, and also heard a good argument for Atlanta..... Close to his home in Mississippi, the team he started with, and as a transition for Ryan.... Hell, I've also heard Detroit, so he could throw it in the face of his past team, as well as Minn.

    I like the guy, but this is getting old....

    The Ravens should reach out to Favre

    The Baltimore Ravens could use a veteran quarterback. Brett Favre could use a veteran team. The Green Bay Packers could use help in getting the legendary quarterback as far away as possible.

    Can you say, "We have a match?"

    At the very least, the Ravens should pick up the phone and call Favre, agent Bus Cook, or both.

    Thoughts of whether Favre can run Cam Cameron's offense, or if Favre fits into a locker room already filled with strong personalities should be secondary at this point. Place the call and talk those things out. Let Favre know right away that you're interested, then both parties could make an informed decision.

    Bringing in Favre would be perfect for Baltimore.

    The Ravens know their quarterback of the future (Joe Flacco), but have no idea about their quarterback of the present. They're gearing up for a three-way race in training camp, which is rare and never a good sign.

    Favre could be the ideal stopgap. Let him play a year or two, let Flacco learn from one of the best of all time, and choose to keep either Troy Smith or Kyle Boller.

    Baltimore is a good, but not great, spot for Favre. The Minnesota Vikings would be more ideal because they are closer to winning a Super Bowl. A team like the Chicago Bears would at least breed familiarity.

    But the Green Bay Packers would cringe at Favre signing with those two teams. So if Favre wants to show gratitude and respect the Packers' wishes of leaving the division and NFC, Baltimore is the place.

    The Ravens lost one retired Mississippi quarterback (Steve McNair) earlier this year.

    What's wrong with adding another Mississippi quarterback who wants to come out of retirement?

    I think at this point he has an axe to grind and if he can choose his team he will go to Vikes or Bears. From everything ive seen GB wanted him gone the last couple years but didnt want to be the ones to force him out.

    That O line is really not good at all. Right now they need a guy who can move. That's where Troy Smith will help them this season, although I don't think he's a good passer at least he'll be able to move. Favre just can't do that anymore...at least not consistently. Plus the Ravens just don't have anything for receivers.

    Also, while I know people would like to see it (self included) there is no way the Packers will let him go to Minnesota or Chicago. Definitely not this season for sure!
