If you’re wondering why the recent wave of Brett Favre related stories, it’s because his name is SEO gold. Write a story about Favre and you’re guaranteed a wealth of hits. Or so’s the thinking.

If you’re wondering why Brett Favre is SEO gold, it’s because people are absolutely fascinated with Favre. Some love him. An equal number hate him. Many have a closeted interest that they express through vehement denial.

Favre kicked around the Seahawks last go around. That’s the story anyway. The Vikings dominated the 2009 Seahawks in every facet of the game. Favre mattered as any quarterback does.

Favre was beaten back and humiliated by the otherwise terrible 2008 Seahawks. Favre was picked twice, sacked four times, and managed only 187 yards on 31 attempts. That was the decline phase of his short time in New York.

I don’t buy for a minute that Favre is retiring. It shames me that a man can pull the same trick, now three times, and generate buzz every time. But site views are king and Favre is instant blah blah blah. So add me to the shameless. This little wretched piece will attract someone. Quota filled. Boom-bam-bing.
