When the Patriots decided they could no longer deal with Randy Moss being Randy Moss and traded him to the Vikings, it looked like he was moving into another situation where he was certain to thrive. Brett Favre has always wanted to play with Moss, and it was reasonable to assume that the two would develop an immediate chemistry and put on a show. Don’t worry, I’m not getting too far ahead of myself. I know there’s still time for that to happen and they got off to a decent start on Monday night against the Jets, but the situation looks like it’s getting worse by the day.
Favre has found himself having to deal with Tiger Woods-type distractions. As if it’s not difficult enough for Old Man Brett to have to answer questions about a game he just completely blew, Favre was forced to deflect questions about sexting Jenn Sterger on Monday night. As if the Jenn Sterger saga wasn’t enough, Favre has been accused of similar behavior by another former Jets employee. Who knows where it will end.
Let’s pile some more on, shall we? Favre is also supposedly dealing with an injured elbow that he has described as “very painful.” The injury comes at a time when the Vikings are already headed in the wrong direction and find themselves facing a must-win against the Cowboys this weekend. Brett says he won’t “play just to play,” and that if he can’t make the throws he’s willing to sit out a game.
