I’ve been trying to avoid this for the last two months now. As I’m sure you have been to. Today was the day that Brett Favre would announce his decision on whether he would or would not join the Minnesota Vikings. Well that was Monday when it was reported and now he is second guessing himself. WHAT!? Are you kidding me Brett? What could possibly keep you from coming back this time? I for one don’t care anymore, but I probably want this to happen more than anyone.
Last year when he was traded to the Jets or as I called them the “Brett’s.” That was not his decision as Green Bay controlled him. When he almost immediately announced his retirement at the end of the season, speculation started on him changing his mind. Only because it happened the year before and it will probably happen again. Sure enough it was Minnesota that initiated the talks, just like the year before when he was in Green Bay. Now of course the Packers weren’t going to trade him to a division rival, but now Brett is free to decide where to go. Where else but the Vikings to stick it to Green Bay for two games. Well, specifically GM Ted Thompson who refused to let Brett back when he changed his mind.
For that reason alone I would love to see Brett come back and either ruin his legacy more or become a hero for a new team. Favre had surgery on the bum shoulder, which signaled that he was coming back. Now because he is reportedly getting text messages from Viking players Adrian Peterson, Jared Allen and Steve Hutchinson he is having a change of heart. Yeah, I guess the pressure can get to even the best of us. He now realizes that he has put himself and an entire franchise into a corner they can’t get out of. If he decides to go, expectations will be Super Bowl or bust. If he decides to stay retired, the Vikings will be stuck with Tavaris Jackson and Sage Rosenfels who I’m sure are not happy at all about the whole situation. It’s a lose lose situation for Favre and Minnesota. I’m just so glad I’m not a Viking fan because I would be real worried about seeing him in purple and not seeing him in purple. Have fun.
