Brett Favre to Vikings Rumors Won’t Go Away

May 10, 2009

(ChattahBox) — Despite claims Brett Favre has turned down the Minnesota Vikings and will remain retired, a new story has popped up claiming the deal is not dead. According to a story which originally seemed to emanate from ESPN sources, Favre had X-rays of his right shoulder (he has a partially torn biceps tendon) sent to the Vikings for evaluation. Supposedly he Vikings received the X-rays on Thursday for their doctors to evaluate. If Favre, who turns 40 in October, can return to play without major surgery, supposedly he is game but if not both sides will pretend it never happened.

Favre’s agent, Bus Cook, told ESPN he’s not aware of any X-rays being sent to the Vikings (of course maybe it was an MRI). In any case this new story may confirm Favre’s desire to compete again, particularly against his former team.

    So…Favre as a Viking? Really? I mean, I know that’s the team he wanted to go to last season, but he’s retired for good, right? I’m not so sure anymore.

    Do I think Favre still has game? Absolutely. Do I think he is still starting quarterback material? Absolutely. My issue with Brett Favre is this: if you want to play, then play; if you want to retire, then retire.

    I understand that people see last season as Brett’s failure, but come on. Remember that the Jets finished 9-7 last season, and the only reason that they didn’t make the post season was because of a couple of critical losses toward the end of the regular season. Losses that were not entirely Favre’s fault. Let’s not forget about the Jet’s defense, or lack thereof. So it is entirely unreasonable to throw the entirety of the blame onto Brett’s shoulders.

    During Brett Favre’s season with the Jets, he fulfilled the job description of an NFL quarterback: the scapegoat of his team.
