ESPN is going to the Brett Favre well yet again. Their latest report says the Vikings will send a trainer and a member of the coaching staff to Mississippi, probably this weekend, to put Favre through a work-out. It’s all about assessing the health of Favre’s arm, says ESPN. And having some crawdad stew (if, in fact, there is any such thing as crawdad stew).
Well, we’ve been down this road a few times already, haven’t we? And it always leads to some kind of denial or refutation. But, you have to admire ESPN – they are nothing if not persistent. Doesn’t matter how many times they’re wrong, they’ll keep digging up more stories, and defending them even in the face of direct contradictory statements by Brad Childress.
