Brett Favre, Brett Favre, Brett Favre

It may be Super Bowl week, but there is apparently always time for more Brett Favre speculation.  I’ve been waiting for the concept of Favre revisiting his interest in the Vikings to pick up steam and today was the day.

FanNation posted the headline “Favre-to-Vikings move possible” and immediately saw the topic become its most commented of the day. 

The note in its original context was first run in the St. Paul Pioneer Press.  Charley Walters offers the idea that the Favre-Vikings rumors “have been circulating for a week.”

So wrong

So wrong

Personally, I strongly believe that Brad Childress and Darrell Bevell are waiting for Favre’s imminent release to make this concept official.  Favre may not have much left but he is an immediate upgrade from Tarvaris Jackson, Gus Frerotte, & John David Booty.

As for Favre’s current employer, the New York Jets, it appears that talks regarding his future could begin as early as next week.

It will be very interesting to see how the Packer faithful react to this new round of speculation.  Was last summer’s gnashing of teeth the end of it or will new emotions rise to the surface?

Brett will not pass on an opportunity to stick it to Ted Thompson.  And Thompson’s worst nightmare appears imminent.  Or is it?

Perhaps the Aaron Rodgers era is now officially underway and none of this matters anyway.  Rodgers reflected on his first season on ESPN Radio this morning.  The interview with Mike & Mike runs about 8 minutes and covers a number of topics, including his take on the only game that really matters this week.

  1. There is no way. He is either going to retire or play for the Jets. The Jets are not going to release their cash cow and they are “poison pilled” from trading him. Also, the Jets owner would look foolish if he does an about face and releases him after stating he wants him back next year. Personally, I would love him in the NFC Central. If there is anything proven about Favre, he can’t handle a 3-4 defense and he chokes after December 1st.

  2. I found this recent quote from Woody Johnson telling: “We’ve been preoccupied with building the stadium and this (facility), and now we’re really focused on the most important aspect, and that’s the team.” Favre was a pawn to help sell PSL’s. He’s no more a part of the Jets’ future than Richard Todd. Now, Favre might gracefully retire, but his preoccupation with getting back at the Packers and his relationship with Childress/Bevell makes me think that, come August, he’ll have a hard time staying away.

  3. […] it quits “for good” Count me among the doubters but Brett Favre did announce his retirement today.  […]
