At least, that is what he said yesterday. No clue what he is going to say today. But the bottom line is, who believes this dude? The idea that he is done stringing this out to get that attention just seems silly. Favre could wake up tomorrow and hop a flight to Minnesota and say that he is back and ready to roll. Then, the next day find himself back in Mississippi with ESPN cameras all over the place.
Dude loves the coverage and loves playing these games.
The Vikings, as well, will be sitting and waiting and at any point Favre wants to come back they are okay with casting Tavaris Jackson to the side.
I’m just shocked Favre doesn’t have a Twitter where folks can see him agonize over this decision. I would imagine that is just because of a contract with ESPN that they get the exclusives on these announcements.
I was a huge fan of Brett’s — but now he’s just becoming a joke. I understand how hard it must be for premiere athletes to let it go when their playing days are done — but you’d think that his utter collapse at the end of last season would’ve been enough to convince the man that he is no longer the player he once was. Yes he can still play – but not at the level he is accustomed to – now he’s just tarnishing his entire reputation. And his back and forthing on the final decision just makes him look the fool.
Yeah, it would be one thing if he at least knew what he was going to do. But, I imagine it is a lot ESPNs fault for covering his every decision.
I heard one thing that made sense, that the Vikings might grab him for a late season/post season run. Like, bring him back in like week 8 and hope he doesn’t burn out like he did with the Jets last year.
