(Thanks for the update DDD – was reading PFT’s article when your comment came in).
So, Favre seems to be going back on his initial comment that this was all “total B.S.” Even if Favre is to be taken at his word here, which is hard to do anymore, I still don’t like that he would share this info with a team we were about to play. As Leroy Butler said, he can see Favre doing something like this because Favre likes to talk. But it just doesn’t seem right to talk to the team the Pack is about to play…especially if he knows other coaches are in the room listening etc. (And, if others were in the room listening, I have a hard time believing that the purpose of the call was simply to discuss hunting).
Favre’s story is, as expected, a bit different from Glazer’s report. Even if we factor into this the likelihood that sleezy, horrible GM Matt Millen probably pushed Favre to reveal some info like a life insurance salesman (sorry I had a bad experience with one recently) – that is no excuse. All Favre had to say was “nice try, you horrendous GM, nice try”.
