Announcement Vote In The NFL All-Division Super Bowl: AFC North vs. NFC North ×

Maybe We're Imagining it All


Either Bus Cook is completely out of the loop or the news of the last couple days has all been some weird dream.  Via USA Today:

Brett Favre‘s agent James “Bus” Cook says that the quarterback is not reconsidering his second retirement in as many offseasons.
Cook told USA TODAY Wednesday that, after speaking with Favre late Tuesday, “As far as I know, he is retired.”

When asked about ESPN reports on Tuesday that the iconic quarterback plans to sit down this week with Minnesota Vikings head coach Brad Childress to discuss a comeback following February retirement from the New York Jets, Cook said emphatically, “To my knowledge, that is not true.”

But it is difficult to know for sure with the indecisive Favre, who began changing his mind about his March 2008 retirement from the Green Bay Packers around this time last spring.

“As far as I know he is retired and he’s not told me he’s changed his mind,” Cook said Wednesday morning. “I’m on the golf course (Tuesday) and my phone was blowing up with all these messages.

“I said what in the world is all this stuff about Brett coming back?

“I talked to Brett yesterday. I said, ‘What’s all this about?’ He said, ‘I don’t know. I don’t know where that’s coming from.’”

“I would think the first order of business would be that Brett would tell me, ‘Bus, I want to play again.’ That hasn’t happened.”

Cook also refutes reports that Favre is hiring a quarterbacks coach to work with him in Mississippi.  Is that Rod Serling over there puffing away on a Chesterfield?

    Go away – no one cares anymore!  Forget about Thompson and how angry you are with him — the rest of us have moved on…. it’s time for you to.

    Cat Maer, I want to kick the Packers butt as much as Favre.  I love it.  So does our Governor.  And like Jim Rome says revenge isn’t a bad motive if it gets Favre to train hard.  I didn’t like Vikings players  in the past that just wanted to collect a paycheck.

    THE QUEENS WOULD GET A GIFT IF BRETT IS HEALTHY AND FOCUSED. MAY TED THOMPSON GET NUDE IN AHOT TUB WITH A RODGERS

    If bringing in Favre will get the legislature in the mindset to build a new stadium for the Vikings and keeping them in Minnesota…then I’m all for it. Hell bring in Bozo the clown and give him a tryout…wait, isnt he dead? Well the last I heard so was Favres arm….its like the hen and the egg thing…

    Star Tribune reporting Childress and Favre could reach deal quickly!

    Interesting Berrian is so excited about getting Favre.  Much different than the reaction of Housh to T-Jack.

  • Favre is a bum!!!

    I hope the Vikings sign the primadonna – I’ll laugh my a-s off when the fans realize he will be a less than adequite addition to a loser franchise – let the team move to LA just like the baksetball team did so many years ago. Ha-Ha-Ha

    It’s those idiot Packer fans that I have to deal with here in WI. I am a Packer fan, but one with rational thought. I’m sure they all own Jets jerseys too!
