Favre Confirms Ankle Op

Brett Favre has a message for you:

This is to confirm that I did have a procedure to remove some scar tissue and bone spurs from my ankle which had been bothering me for a period of time. I appreciate your concerns.

Thanks,
Brett

If you doubted that Favre’s intent was to return, this should give you quite a bit of confidence.

    Darren Sharper on Brett Favre surgery: “X marks the spot”
    Posted by Mike Florio on May 22, 2010 10:22 AM ET
    Now that Vikings quarterback Brett Favre has undergone ankle surgery, apparently in the hopes of playing in 2010, a former teammate and current nemesis has sounded off.

    “Well, y’all seen Brett had surgery on that ankle we got after in the championship game,” Saints safety Darren Sharper said. “Come Thursday night 1st game. X marks the spot.”

    Sharper’s message contains a healthy dose of irony, given that he was hobbling on a bad knee for much of the offseason, and that even after surgery in early March he won’t be ready to be on the field until training camp.

    So, basically, the men charged with blocking for Favre easily can respond by looking at Sharper’s knee and saying, “X marks the spot.”

    As for Freds, he thinks the next video reporter should be Another Blonde Viking. Heck at least she’s one of ours. She can read without cue cards and knows about our purple.

    Not only that, she can give us updates on happy dances with Mr. ABV. See that Freds old pals is Vikings coverage we can all get with!

    Fred doesn’t know who he hates more, Sharper or Banjo. Both are stupid richards.

    What about the tractor? How long until he can drive it again?

    Why can’t we ever seem to report on the things that matter?

    • Ole says:

      good point starrC10, when are we gonna get a report of favre throwing Nerf footballs to players from the Hattiesburgh HS team?

      then a report about how Deanna favre wants brent to retire

      what I’d really like to see is a report from Javon Walker telling favre to “shut his piehole and report to camp on time, you are hurting the team”

    Hey Cal, get your mind out of the gutter and back to football. ‘Hate to be sexist…’ Right, hit the showers…alone.

    Here’s the professor on why the Viking may have made the right draft move afterall….

    “As much as I hate to say it, I think the problem was more LaDainian Tomlinson than the offensive line. This offense is set up for the play-action pass and being able to run off play-action options. The Chargers’ receivers are big. Philip Rivers probably throws more downfield tosses than anyone in football. That takes away that eighth defender coming into the box to stop the run. The running back in that offense simply has to make a defender miss and gain yards. Tomlinson has lost explosiveness through the hole and the ability to break long runs. That’s a reality of his age and his number of carries. I consider him a first-ballot Hall of Famer, and nothing at the end of his career is going to change my position. Watch the film of the playoff game against the Jets and the number of times Norv Turner ran Tomlinson on first down. It wasn’t as much the blocking as LT’s inability to explode…..”

    Oh, Freds! You made me laugh again…just don’t encourage Mr. ABV about filming….Go Vikes!!

  8. […] Spending a few days away from Viking town, I often return feeling like Alexander Fleming, returning to the petri dish. Sometimes there is nothing, but today there is an excitingly large amount of various moulds. The most interesting, concerns our “Will he? Won’t he? Where is he?” Quarterback, Brett Favre who, last week confirmed that he’s had surgery on his ankle. […]
