Peter King's Favre Suspicions


SI.com’s Peter King, a well-known Brett Favre butt-boy, has this to say about all the speculation surrounding Mr. Favre’s possible return to the NFL:

I don’t know what he’s going to do. But I, like some of you, am suspicious. There’s no good reason to ask for his release from the Jets unless it’s to leave open the option to play again. I am told he may be feeling the urge to play again.

King, along with Ed Werder and Chris Mortensen, makes up the Holy Trinity of Favre media contacts, which gives his speculation somewhat more weight than that of your random media hack.  That being said, I doubt King actually knows any more than the rest of us do.  I doubt even Bus Cook really knows what Favre’s intentions are.  Actually, I don’t think Brett himself is sure what he’s going to do yet.  Brett will probably be out mowing grass or fishing or fixing his truck one day, and suddenly it will hit him, “I think I’ll play football again,” and he’ll go inside, wash his hands, pick up his phone and dial Darrell Bevell‘s number.  And within 24 hours the media will be summoned to Mississippi, and there will be Brad Childress and Zygi Wilf beaming like kids at Christmas, and Favre holding court like the master showman he thinks he is.

    Well, I’d like to see Favre burn his old team and watch all of these so called “packer fans” fall off of the bandwagon and on to the Vikings Ship to watch Favre go to the Super Bowl again.

    Favre under center with AP in the backfield?  Who wouldn’t want to see that?

    I like the idea of FaVre doing a play-action fake to A.P. , every defense bitting on it, then throwing it to Berrian, Harvin, or even Shank or Rice, who will have some very good mismatches.  ( I like FaVre’s fakes)

    Maybe after 40 years of being a Vik fan could the dream finally come true???????????

    I have no greater desire in this life than to see Brett Favre beat the Packers, and I’m from Green Bay.  I despise Ted Thompson and hate the ground he walks on.   I will die a happy man the day TT gets fired for what he did to Brett.   I used to hate you purple queers in the horned hats, but now I’m thinking of getting a #4 Vikings jersey.
    Go Vikings!
