Favre To Play Friday?
Although he hasn’t been officially signed by the Minnesota Vikings, there’s speculation that Brett Favre will be playing this Friday when the Vikings take on the Kansas City Chiefs. According to Pro Football Talk (via ESPN’s Cris Carter — a noted Minnesota insider), it sounds like more than just random guessing on Carter’s part. Upon reflection, Favre’s message is pretty clear: Who needs training camp? Of course, if he plays like ass on Friday against the Chiefs, a team undergoing a massive rebuilding project, it’s safe to say Favre underestimated his effectiveness.
Speaking of, let’s say Favre struggles, not just in preseason, but in the real games, too. Would Brad Childress have to courage to bench Big-Brained Brett in favor of Sage “Shotgun” Rosenfels?
In other news, I’m considering changing the name of this blog from “IntentionalFoul.com” to “IntentionalFavre.com.” It’s only fitting, considering the fact the NFL’s savior has indeed returned.
