Don't call it a comeback. Seriously, don't. Nobody else is.

Regardless, Brett Favre is apparently in tremendous shape -- good enough to play in the NFL today, according to his agent, Bus Cook.

“Today, he could play today,” Cook said, per a report from Pro Football Talk. “I saw him the other day. He’s in the best shape I’ve ever seen him in, physically."

“His arms look like a blacksmith’s arms. He rides a bike probably 30-50 miles a day. He runs four or five miles a day. He’s coaching at the high school and they’re undefeated. He loves it. His body fat is 7.5 percent and he weighs 225 pounds. He could play today, better than a lot of them out there today.”

Favre turns 44 years-old next month.

Here's some speculation, with nothing to back it up... but Favre owns the NFL record with 508 career touchdown passes. Maybe Favre is feeling some pressure from Broncos QB, Peyton Manning, who is on pace to throw 64 touchdowns this season.

Manning has 448 career touchdown passes, and at his current rate he could pass Favre early next season.
