Brett Favre Not Coming Back, Bus Cook Claims

Chris Mortensen spoke to Bus Cook about Brett Favre‘s plans now that he’s been granted his release by the Jets.  Contrary to rumor and speculation, Cook insisted the former Packer has no designs on returning to football, with the Vikings or anyone else.

“He’s retired, he doesn’t have any desire to come back, and that’s the way it is with Brett,” Cook said. “He’s mowing his grass. He’s working on his farm. He enjoys that stuff.”

Yeah, but I know another thing Brett enjoys:  slinging it on Sunday.  And he’d enjoy it even more if he got to do it against his mortal enemy Ted Thompson.

    How long is it going to take for Brett and the Vikings to finally say… “ALright, lets give it a shot… why not?”

  • Mike

    Favre has too much pride to ask the Vikings to play and be rejected.  Childress must pursue him.

    now that favre has his release, his passion to play will be re-ignited and the saga will once again be revived and it will all
    start with a casual call from his buddy darren bevel. childress
    won’t participate in this.

  • Mike

    Childress will visit Percy but not Brett???

  • Guess Who

    yes because Harvin is young talent and favre is dust in the wind.

  • Mike

    Guess Who -
    I will guess you are a drunk, likely a Packer fan.

  • Wazoo

    He didn’t do much in New York, I don’t think he can do much here either.  Let him mow.

  • Mike

    Wazoo, he just made the pro bowl with his performance before injuring his  biceps.

  • Hutch

    Let him play! Vikings would have the best season ever!!
    Childress call him please!

  • MJ

    Pro Bowl? You really think that was a Pro Bowl year even before he “hurt” his arm. Wow, you are funny. 5 years ago you guys would have wanted him dead, now you would do anything for an aging QB well past his prime. Take him, he’s all used up now. Yeah, I must be a Packer Fan because I make sense!

  • ViQueens

    Queens could bring back Johnny U and still be a piece of crap.  Maybe you should ask Herschel to come back…..another great moment in Queens history.

  • jeege

    ViQueens you are hilarious! Where’d you get that great sense of humor?

    I bet you had to think up a lot of jokes cause your daddy was too drunk to love you and you were too sensitive to cope. Don’t worry ViQueens, it will all be ok some day.
