Patch Poll: Should Brett Favre Become a Bear?

Does it make sense for the Bears nemesis to take over as quarterback this late in the season? Would it be a miracle, a sideshow or something in between?

ESPN Chicago says Brett Favre will listen if the Chicago Bears want to make him an offer to play quarterback for the balance of the season—and, who knows, beyond?

As Adam Jun points out in his , there's been a lot of talk lately about the Bears seeking some veteran help, either in the form of Favre or Donovan McNabb, the Chicago native and former Pro Bowler.

But it's the Favre connection that perhaps is most intriguing. How many times have we watched Bears-Packers games in the past when we thought, "Boy, if that guy was our quarterback, we'd be going to the Super Bowl."

On the flip side is the Bears-Packers rivalry (Do we really want the legendary Packers QB doing the signal calling for Da Bears?) and the possible humiliation of a living legend. (Who wants to see Favre fail at this stage in life?)

Still, a fascinating scenario.

What do you think?

Oh, Rick! How could you even think of such a thing? It was nice not hearing his name this season and watching him pout. That is, until you brought it up!

Mark me down for No. 5. The Bears never do anything that far out of the box. They have a back-up quarterback and they will stick with him until they can't, and they will go to one of the other guys already signed. This is what they do. See Collins, T., vintage 2010.

As a Packer fan, Farve has only one flaw - not knowing when to quit. He is a legend, but the bloom is off the rose for awhile because he just didn't let it go. I would guess the Bears are smart enough to know that it just would not be pretty putting him back at the helm. But, their history in picking quarterbacks (agaiin as a life-long Packer fan), is pretty embarrassing, so ....

With 139 votes so far, No. 1 choice is that No. 4 would bring some magic to Chicago.

As a Packer fan, I like the backup that the Bears have now - he's doing just fine - keep him in.
