When Maybe Means Definitely: Brett Favre Talks to Joe Buck

Brett Favre admits that he’s coming back…maybe.  Maybe?  Check out what Brett says around the 6 minute mark of the video.  He’s talking about how familiar he is with the Vikings offense, how much he likes their running game, how he thinks he could fit in with that situation – and says “we should be pretty good.”

Translation:  It’s a done deal.

Forget his talk about “if my arm feels good.”  He already believes the arm will be fine.  Everything else is mere formality.  Brett Favre will be behind center when the Vikings take the field in 2009.

I said in an earlier post that I didn’t think anything would be resolved with this interview, but I was wrong.  Obviously, Favre wanted to come out and confirm that he’s coming back without technically confirming it.  But he doesn’t need to confirm it any more than he has.  Put the jerseys on sale now.  Sell the tickets.  Call up your favorite Packer fan and offer your condolences.  And no, I still don’t think it’s going to work, but the great thing about it is, we all get to watch the games starting in September.  We’ll see who’s right and who’s wrong.
