So no we’re late in July with training camps closing in on us and Brett Favre still is chilling on his tractor in Mississippi. You figure at some point that he has to be signing with the Vikings in the near future, but before he does, he wants to make sure you know something. Favre wants you to know that he’s a wanted man. That’s right.
Two separate reports this week produced by ESPN suggested Favre still was uncertain if he wanted to play this season. Not only is the poor guy undecided about his future, but matters have become more complicated because all the star Vikings players are begging him to join the team! Don’t you feel bad for him?
Honestly, who are they fooling? Favre’s the guy who asked the Jets to release him. Favre’s the one who was toying with the Vikings beginning last year. Favre’s the one who got surgery on his throwing arm so he could play quarterback. And after all this we’re supposed to believe he’s still unsure about playing? Riiiiight.
This is a ploy by Favre’s camp to try and convince the public that Favre’s not begging for a comeback. They’re trying to portray him as a savior, a hero, a guy who can ride in on his white horse, arrive in Minnesota, and lead the Vikings to the Super Bowl. Why else would ESPN be reporting that Adrian Peterson, Jared Allen, and Steve Hutchinson are recruiting him with text messages? You think the team would let that information out knowing it would harm relationships with Sage Rosenfels and Tarvarris Jackson, the two quarterbacks they already have? No way. Let me clear this up for you: Favre wants in and no, he’s not the savior. Enough already — sign the contract, we all know you want to.Google+
