Favre rumblings


We’re hearing it again, this time from Jay Glazer, that Favre and the Vikings haven’t totally broken up yet. I just got a text from Favre saying, “ummm, it’s not like we were exactly going out in the first place, we were more just friends” but “yes, we still talk ’cause like I am a good listener and they are like going through a hard time.” My guess is that even if Favre doesn’t join the Vikings now, we’ll be hearing rumors like this one all season (especially if Rosenfels wins the starting job because MN will struggle if he does).

I think Favre is delaying this not just because he doesn’t like training camp, which Glazer argues, but because the longer he waits, he figures the more desperate the Vikes will become for his help, which has the effect of reducing pressure/expectations. If he had come before camp, there would have been lots of hype surrounding his arrival and the expectations of Vikings’ fans by now would be through the roof, putting lots of pressure on him. But by delaying any commitment to the team, perhaps he’ll be hailed as a savior of sorts when he does commit – and of course then, if things end up going poorly, he can always claim that he didn’t learn enough of the offense due to not being at camp etc. It’s odd in a way, sometimes I think he enjoys the attention, the courting process etc, but at the same time, he doesn’t like the expectations that come with being so sought after.

    I am so fed up with all the Favre talk. Please Brett, go ahead and sign with the Queens so you can do even more damage to your “legacy”
    What a beotch!!!

    Well, play on Brett. The longer you go without getting in to camp, the farther behind you will be and the more at risk your 40 year old body will be. The better for the Pack my friend.

    According to what I’ve heard this morning, Farve will join the Vikings just before the end of the pre-season. Brett feels he doesn’t need to sit in meetings, do drills, or practice like everyone else on the team. So what will that get him? Praise from the guys that do the workouts or an injury to an out-of-shape 40 year old body?
