If you are among those who burn to have Brett Favre don the horned helmet in 2009, then you will be heartened by this report from Gary Myers of the New York Daily News, who absolutely believes that Brett means to play again, and wants desperately to get revenge on his old team the Packers. The key bit is this quote from an NFL source:
Favre can’t stand Green Bay. He wants to play Green Bay and say, “I told you so.” His bitterness is creating this. I think he’s calling Minnesota. I think Minnesota is talking about this as we speak. You haven’t heard the end of Favre. No way. He is bionic. As long as somebody will let him in, he will play.
We know Favre is bitter, that he hates Ted Thompson, and that he wanted to play for the Vikings last year and go out in a blaze of cheesehead-blasting glory. But, it’s a year later and Favre has another bitter experience in his rearview mirror, a poor season-ending stretch with the Jets. The question is, does Favre burn enough to beat Green Bay that he would put in the work to rehab his bad arm, and then risk an even more ignominious fate than what befell him in New York?
