I hope he jerks them around even more than last year. I hope he turns the whole damn Vikings organization into his own personal puppet show. If he says he's not going to play, I think he can still string them along at least until October. And if Childress says that Favre is definitely not coming back, it means nothing, because he lied about it last time.

The cherry on top of it all is that Favre got his bald-headed chauffer a nice big contract extension before throwing away the Vikings' chance at a Super Bowl.

Favre said Pre-Game he already made his decision but will not announce till after the game if they loose. Hmm...

So that means nothing

I have to think that Favre does not want to go out on that INT being his last play... he still looked like he had something left in the tank... I could see him return one more year because the Vikings are a Superbowl Caliber team that should improve through the draft... they're really talented.

It'd be unbelievable though if Favre ended up changing his last play ... the hilarity that would be!

I think ...
He'll miss ota and training camp rehabbing his bum wheel ... then pick up the ball in the preseason

vikings also draft a qb in the first three rounds to sit behind him for the year

after season is done, he signs a one day contract to retire as a 'packer'.

+100...how satisfying is it to see him jerk around our arch rivals, and end up with the same heart-wrenching conclusion he so often subjected us to.

I suppose it's up to the Vikings as much as Favre. Childress may not want him back. I don't know why, as he is the reason or the main reason why they got as far as they did, but their styles don't mesh that well.

I refuse to guess what he'll do. Those hits he took in this game were pretty nasty.

It's funny, he said he knew exactly what he was going to do before this game and now he's not sure. I pretty much thought he had his mind up that he'd play again but after those hits, man you almost have to take time to think lol.

I've been saying he was done for good for three years, so now I'm changing my tune.

I think he will say he's coming back, then he'll nurse his ankle injury through OTAs, training camp, and maybe the first pre-season game, then pick it up again. The man can obviously still play. The totality of the game last night, interception and all, show that he's the same old Favre. The Vikings would be stupid not to accept him back under whatever terms he desires.

Tarvaris Jackson vs Aaron Rodgers. It's about your other options here. The Packers had one, the Vikes don't.

There's one other thing to consider. All you had to do was hear quotes from Deanna and watch her during the game last night to see what this continued drama is doing to her. He can obviously still play, but his body WILL break down, I guarantee it. It'll just get worse and worse to watch.

This is true, of course. But I'm tired of being sure he'll retire and then having him retire and then having him unretire. So, fuck it. He's coming back. That's how I'm dealing with it this offseason.

and yet deanna was VERY vocal about wanting brett to play again...be careful whatcha wish for.

brett's lucky he didn't get injured & i hope to God he decides to retire before something bad happens. he needs to prove nothing else, imo.

My prediction (which, if you add three bucks to it, you might still get a cup of coffee):

Favre reports to the first offseason workout/minicamp with serious attitude. Announces he has a contract with the Vikings and is completing it, and will retire after the 2011 Super Bowl.

The media, not listening carefully, construes this as a prediction that the Vikings will win the 2011 Super Bowl. Carefully manipulating them with his "aw shucks" attitude, Favre lets them keep this impression and enjoys his "victory tour" through the league without any stupid questions about retirement until the Vikings 2010 season is over.

After the Viking season is over (one-and-out-in-the-playoffs, thanks to more Adrian Peterson fumbles and useless DBs for the Vikings), Favre deflects all questions with "I said I'm retiring after the Super Bowl," thereby guaranteeing him even more victory tour stuff, appearances with Jim Rome, Jim Nance, and forty-seven other sports commentators named Jim, makes the NFL happy by appearing at his last Pro Bowl, throwing three TDs to Greg Jennings, Donald Driver, and Sidney Rice, and thereby the day after says, "Yes, I'm going out on top."

The End.

All I know (and have known) is that whatever he says, there are going to be a lot of people that do not believe it.

This is a good thing for Packer fans. Hopefully he will say he is retiring.

The Vikings will have no choice but to make decisions in the draft, etc. based on that pronouncement, including chewing up a draft pick, possibly making overtures to Donovan, etc.

In a perfect world, the Vikings would acquire McNabb, along with using a 1st round draft choice, and then have Brett change his mind and decide to come back for one more shot at it.

I would enjoy watching just exactly how the Minnesota Vikings as an organization would handle that scenario.

The only one better is if he says he is going to play one more year. The Vikings don't acquire a McNabb, they DO go ahead and draft a QB, and stand pat at the position, possibly losing Tavaris Jackson in the process.

In a perfect world, Brett would then announce that it is just too much, and that he has decided to retire after all. I would be interested to see what everyone thinks about how the Vikings would handle that situation.

As you can see by a couple of examples, this just might not suck for us, :tongue3: , and I see NO WAY that it isn't going to provide for some serious entertainment, and we as fans damn sure already paid the admission price, regardless of our personal feelings about Brett Favre the player and/or how he was handled/treated etc. by us. If it is a disruptive force to the Vikings, well, I'm all for that. :thumbleft:

If I were him, I'd think about giving it another year - hell, they were damn close to getting there, and would certainly be prohibitive favorites next season. Then I'd try to get out of bed the morning after the game and I'd be all "fuck that noise - holy hell, that hurts!" and I would retire on the spot.

As for what he'll really do - who the hell knows? What I do know is that's a Vikings problem these days, and they're welcome to it.
