Did anyone else see the Favre interview tonight with Al Michaels and Favre?

Interesting. He says he came back for the camaraderie and the feeling that he owes something to the players. He also said that a major fear for him coming back was that he couldn't do anything more than he did last year.

However, he reiterated near the end of the interview that he probably would NOT have come back to play this year if Jared Allen and crew would not have come down and asked him to play again this year.

After hearing the interview I find myself rooting for him this year. Last year it seemed it was all about sticking it to the Packers, this year it genuinely sounded like it has nothing to do with the Packers or proving anything, only loyalty to his teammates.

Not saying he did the whole unretiring thing with class but his reasons I can respect. I can't believe I'm able to say this again but,

GO FAVRE! (NOT the Vikings)

What do you guys think?

Loyalty to guys he still barely knows and from what I hear don't really like him?

Yeah, that's why he came back...

I think Favre loves football and if I could play in the NFL, I would play until I drop. So I don't fault him or any other player for playing football.

But he definitely has those games against the Pack circled. How could he not? But he also wants that last ring. He cares about his legacy. He wants to go out a Champ.

Well....too bad he didn't "feel the love" for his teammates when he was still here. He could have played his entire career here.
I only believe half of what the guy says.......and the other half i have doubts.

I think he says what he wants to believe at the time he says it.

This was before the interview, but Seifert from Espn.com had his own take on the psyche of Favre in coming back.

uffda udfa (4h) : Guion suspension upheld...lost for 3 games
uffda udfa (5h) : He works boundary...great body control...great feet...goes deep...runs well...is strong. Jordy Clone, maybe.
uffda udfa (5h) : Tell me he doesn't remind you of 87...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_zPZNolFvPI
Zero2Cool (5h) : Only thing that matters : 40 Yrd Dash: 4.54
uffda udfa (5h) : Butler is 6'2 215...Hmmm, wonder what TT has in mind. Ha.
uffda udfa (5h) : TT went out and got us Jordy's replacement...James Butler...not even a camp invite.
uffda udfa (13h) : I knew what you were saying and I loved it! From a production standpoint it was worse than college radio. It had Aaron which made it worth
Zero2Cool (14h) : I wouldn't know good radio if it sat on my face, but I know what I find informational and worthwhile. Tuesday with Aaron, was both.
Zero2Cool (14h) : I am saying my zero experience in radio > your whatever years. :D Bahahahahah
uffda udfa (14h) : Ha! Yeah, I only was involved in making good radio for 8 years. Don't know a thing.
Zero2Cool (15h) : Yeah, I'm not surprised I know good radio better than you. Not a big deal, you have your strengths, radio isn't one.
uffda udfa (23h) : We have very different tastes. I worked in radio for many years. Thought the show was so much worse than it needed to be.
Zero2Cool (27-Aug) : NFL Pick'em v2.0 is here!
Zero2Cool (26-Aug) : Wilde was great choice and if not for Jason's rapport with Aaron, never would have happened.
uffda udfa (26-Aug) : I never caught it live...listened to podcast a few times. Wilde was the wrong guy for that show.
Zero2Cool (26-Aug) : That was poorly worded, my mistake. I was regular, it was great peak into his life. Planned meetings around it lol
uffda udfa (26-Aug) : As for Tuesday's with Aaron I did listen, but I wasn't a regular.
Smokey (26-Aug) : Anyone seen Polargrizzz lately, he's AWOL !
Zero2Cool (26-Aug) : If you listened to them, Aaron urged them to go past the 10 minutes. Jason would be an idiot to cut it off.
uffda udfa (26-Aug) : The contract stated 10 minutes but the show always went longer. Sounds like 540 took advantage and perhaps he got sick of it.
uffda udfa (26-Aug) : As for Aaron's radio show, sounds like he just didn't want to do it and they took too much of his time. Was only supposed to be 10 minutes.
Smokey (26-Aug) : Don't worry, be WR happy !
Zero2Cool (26-Aug) : WR!!
uffda udfa (25-Aug) : LeRoy Butler and Finley want TT to add a WR. Silverstein wrote a piece on it, including Rison mention. Let's get this!
uffda udfa (25-Aug) : The WHY is the big story, but that hasn't come out yet.
Zero2Cool (25-Aug) : noooooooooooooooooooo!
Zero2Cool (25-Aug) : Aaron is done? Why????
uffda udfa (25-Aug) : If you liked "Tuesday's with Aaron" he's not doing it this year. He's done.
Zero2Cool (23-Aug) : Tolzien being evaluated for concussion. What?
hardrocker950 (23-Aug) : wow... what a joke
dhazer (23-Aug) : Cheese heads are everywhere donot be sureprised ifor we are louder
Zero2Cool (23-Aug) : And you're wearing a Ben jersey... sad!
dhazer (23-Aug) : Hello from Heinz field
dhazer (23-Aug) : Anyone else going to be at the big ketchup bottle of Heinz Field
Mucky Tundra (23-Aug) : TEBOW!
