Brett Favre Drama Pushes On

Jun 10, 2009

Since it’s officially Hurricane Season, it should come as no surprise that Hurricane Brett is picking up steam.  Let’s take a look at what transpired over the past few days.  Nothing.  Seriously.  Nothing has changed with the Brett Favre saga.  Nor will it until his bicep tendon is fully healed.  If and when it becomes healed, Brett Favre will be the Quarterback for the Minnesota Vikings.  Whether or not someone incorrectly reports that the Vikings have set a deadline (hard or soft), put the Favre Chase on hold, or declare Tarvaris Jackson or Sage Rosenfels in the lead for the starting QB gig holds no weight until it’s determined if Favre is healthy.  Whether or not Favre books hotels, a private jet, and buys a whole block of seats for the Vikings-Packers games doesn’t matter either.  All that matters is the rehab Favre puts in and whether or not he can heal in time for training camp.  I’ll still report on the situation if something changes, but I just want you to not get sucked in either way in this mess.  It’s simple.  If he’s healthy he is the Vikings starting QBs.  If not, he stays retired.  The rest–details, baby, details.

    When I first read that the Vikings “suspended pursuit of Brett Favre” I laughed to myself. The fact that they felt the need to announce this is just so bizzare to me. The guy is supposed to be retired and the Vikes have been so vague about even pursuing him, yet they announce the suspension of the same non-pursuit. I wonder how poor Sage feels. Either sign him or move on, until then the reports should stop. Good stuff Lester.

    Yeah, I think it’s just a slow NFL time so they keep pumping it out. At least it doesn’t seem to be blowing up talk radio. If he comes back, cool. If not, not a big deal.

    Thanks. We’ll see how it goes.

    Can’t wait to see Hurricane Brett play again – better if he would be in GB, but we’ll take him wherever we can get him!

    i wouldn’t say he’s the best ever, but he’s pretty darn good. Solid crew of guys from there. PA has produced some amazing QBs like Montana and Marino
