Favre Apologizes To Team, Vows To Play “Lights Out”

Brett Favre has a history of playing “lights out” when the pressure is on, particularly on Monday Night Football.  He’s done it following his father’s death, he’s done it with last minute miracle throws, and he’s done it under the national spotlight while playing his former team.

Tonight, Favre is preparing to play with the pressure that comes from having the nation wondering if allegations of a sexual nature that have recently surfaced are true or not.  The whole world will be watching, and that tends to be when Favre plays his best.

While the seconds tick away and we get closer to kickoff of tonight’s matchup against the red hot New York Jets, Favre has spoken about the allegations to ESPN and also to his team.

“My main focus is the New York Jets, they are a tough team; as good as they are that has been my focus,” Favre told ESPN. “I hate in any way if this has been a distraction as I said Thursday — we are here focused on trying to beat the Jets.”

While Favre did not and has not denied the allegations, Favre said he would be happy to speak with Commissioner Roger Goodell about the issue.  When asked directly if the charges were true, Favre simply replied, “That will take its course.”

“It [Favre’s reputation] has always been important to me,” Favre said of his reputation. “That was one of the first questions I answered when I signed here [the Vikings]. Sure it is important to me, it has always been a concern.”

Meanwhile, Favre has reportedly apologized to his Vikings teammates at their hotel on Monday for any distraction the situation may have caused.
