Yahoo sports and others are reporting that Favre has decided to stay retired. Perhaps this latest thing was totally a media construct, but he didn’t have to agree to (or seek out?) the meeting with the Vikings. It’s almost as though he did it just to get back at TT. Lame.
I’m very much ready to put this behind me – so long as Favre doesn’t waffle on all of this in a few months (which is entirely possible). Favre on the Vikings would have really ticked me off – still not pleased with how he’s gone about all of this, but at least for now, it appears he won’t be playing for the hated Vikings.
Though I think it was important to pay attention to this whole situation because it may have had a direct effect on the Packers this year and because like it or not, Brett Favre is a major part of Packer history, I am very much ready to move on and focus on this year’s team and other stories in the NFL. Should be a fun year. I’m not sure if it’s because it’s spring and I can finally golf and release stress appropriately, but I’m feeling pretty good heading into this season. Go Pack!
