Favre to Philly?

It’s shocking to me that the idea of Brett Favre signing with the Eagles as a backup to Michael Vick is not only being treated as an actual possibility, but actually has people openly advocating for it.
I mean, come on. Favre is 42 years old. He’s already retired four different times. He has about ten different injuries, and when he played last year he looked like he was not only past his prime, but pretty much near death. Vick is enough of an injury risk that it’s important to have a dependable backup. So why even think about bringing in someone who’s a pretty good bet to get hurt himself?
Signing Favre makes about as much sense as trading Domonic Brown and Vance Worley for half a season of Carlos Beltran.
