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.

Zero2Cool: thank ya sir
uffda udfa: Best looking site out there!
Zero2Cool: You welcome!
Cheesey: THANK YOU again for all you do.
Cheesey: You do all the work, while some think they don't have to honor your few rules.
Cheesey: Kevin, you KNOW how much I appreciate this site.
uffda udfa: Nope. Too much pressure for them.
Zero2Cool: NFL MVP's don't seem to win the Super Bowl the same year, do they?
Zero2Cool: Panthers played uninspired and predictable, actually (and sadly) reminded me of the Packers. :(
Zero2Cool: Thanks 68md, good to know some notice and appreciate.
Zero2Cool: Holding a different or less than popular view is perfectly fine. You fail to understand this even though I repeatedly tell you. It's annoyin
uffda udfa: Good night, Smokey.
Smokey: good night uffda.
uffda udfa: Wonder how Colts fans feel, and Mr. Irsay?
uffda udfa: Today, anyway.
Smokey: DEFENSE DOES WIN CHAMPIONSHIPS TT !
uffda udfa: Carolina will never be back to a SB under Cam Newton.
uffda udfa: Denver D just dominated the current MVP and the former this year.
uffda udfa: Cam for LVP in the SB. No character.
uffda udfa: Newton is a wuss. MVP? LOL.
uffda udfa: #VonFire
uffda udfa: People who have passion and expectations aren't A words. Accepting less than the best doesn't make you not one either.
uffda udfa: Sorry, Kevin...maybe you called Dakota an A word and not me? Had to be one of us.
uffda udfa: Marshawn Lynch announced his retirement in a cool way via twitter. What could've been in Green Bay, Marshawn!
uffda udfa: It's okay... you called me the "A" word. All because I don't tickle the ears. I get it.
uffda udfa: So someone like Buck deserves privileges because he's a better fan than me due to his flattering opinions?
68md: wet blanket ? He works his ass off to keep the place going for you ?
Smokey: Zero, Why are you such a wet blanket host ? A real SB "Chat" should have been a priority for this site. Wet Blanket strikes again.
Zero2Cool: BTW, I'm not saying you're an asshole. I'm stating a fact, that's all.
Zero2Cool: You don't get it. You confuse right and privilege. Assholes don't deserve privileges. Get it, got it, good.
uffda udfa: Talib playing a Burfict half so far.
uffda udfa: You have an R rated section on a Packers board. I think moving the guys you really don't want rocking the boat to their own forum is a great
uffda udfa: I think the same was likely said at KFAN when it was suggested they have a Packers show. I believe they still have it. I used to produce it
Zero2Cool: Seriously think what you're asking and do so before asking. Unreal.
uffda udfa: Aaron walking gingerly in that SB MVP introduction thing.
