More Evidence Mounts For Favre Return

What was once thought to be the biggest question on the Vikings offseason now seems like a foregone conclusion.

Everyone expects Brett Favre to return.

Reports from earlier this week suggest that he is moving around just fine on his ankle, and even pulled a few jukes and spins (kidding) to get away from reporters.

Today, the true die-hard Brett Favre fans will probably suffer through the ESPY awards show in attempt to get an indication from Favre, who is nominated for multiple awards and presenting one, as to his status.

While Favre will likely reveal very little on tonight’s show, the Men’s Journal magazine has some quotes of interest.

“Playing another year probably isn’t going to make a difference,” Favre said of the long term worries in regards to playing another season.  “The damage has already been done.”

“You’d think I’d know better by now,” He says of his indecisiveness.  “I’ve learned a lot through the years. What I haven’t learned is what I’ll do and when I’ll do it.”

Favre also had an interesting recollection of riding in Coach Childress’ SUV to training camp (as he calls it) after joining the Vikings.

“I was driving into training camp and I’m saying, ‘God, what was I thinking.’ I thought, ‘This is a mistake.’ ”

Lastly, he provides a glimpse into how his departure from the Packers went down and how he truly felt about it.

“There was just silence. I said, ‘Well, what are we gonna do?’ They made it pretty clear I wasn’t going to play there, and I said, ‘How about the Vikings or even the Lions?’ I wanted to stay in the same division. They said that wasn’t going to happen, but maybe Tampa. I said, ‘Fine, trade me to Tampa. I’ll whip your asses in week four.’ Maybe that was a mistake. I’m flying back to Hattiesburg thinking I’m going to the Bucs, and I get off the plane and Bus tell me I’ve been traded to the Jets. I said, ‘Bull,’ but they were smart; they released the news so I’d look like an ass if I backed out.”

There you go.  Now you can tell the grandkids that once upon a time… Brett Favre actually cared about people thinking he was an ass.

      Sorry, Johnny. I still can’t stand the guy and it always manages to find a way into my posts 🙂

        Adam, believe me I understand the sentiment. Favre himself is to blame. If he would have just come out and said the obvious, that he plans on returning, there would be alot less hatred towards him.
