View Full Version : Favre Watch.....Again

FOX Sports is 'reporting' that one unnamed player is saying that Favre will be joining them this season and that the deal is already done. Another unnamed player is saying that he doesn't know if the deal is done but that Favre will be joining the team by the 3rd preseason game.

I love Favre, but this is beyond ridiculous. Favre owes it to the fans to come out and refute this story if its not true. He also owes it to the players giving their all to compete for the starting job that he refused to accept. Sage and even Tarvaris deserve better.

Favre, I have supported you and your waffling but if this story is true, shame on you.

This is not Favre saying this it is members of the Vikings. Maybe they need to stop bringing it up and or going after him.

agreed.. I think any one of us would be hard pressed to stay retired if a company kept throwing money at us .. if we would come back ...esp for a year ...

I know, I know.. how many millions can one make..but if you loved your job and enjoyed what you did ...retired and a boss throws money saying come back....who knows

Favre said I am retired.. unlike Clemens which said he would think about it

WCCO-TV in Minneapolis cites a high-level source with the Vikings as saying Brett Favre will sign on Tuesday.

The Hattiesburg Laurel Regional Airport reports that Brett and Deanna Favre boarded a plane with a Vikings logo and were headed to Minneapolis. Multiple reports confirm that Favre is en route and will sign with the Vikings later today. The latest reports back FoxSports.com's Jay Glazer's prediction that Favre would join the team shortly. Favre accomplished his goal of avoiding training camp and will be handed the starting job with three weeks to prepare.

I feel very sorry for Sage but Favre is Favre. I don't like the way he handled it but signing Favre gives the Vikings their best chance to win this year. Favre has done enough in the league and still has a good enough arm (when healthy) to make him very coveted and improve a team's chances. Remember the guy was doing awesome for Jets until his injury.

He also increased the value of my block of Vikings@Texans preseason tickets tenfold, so call me selfish.

Honestly, wasn't a fan of Sage starting here but I think he throws enough TDs and about the same Ints lately as Favre. I don't see it as a major upgrade.

It sounds like ownership was a huge factor in maintaining the courtship of Favre. Ownership is firmly behind this so that may buy Childress some goodwill but he is on a hotseat anyway. If Childress didn't win with Sage he was fired so it stands to reason that if Childress doesn't win with Favre he will be fired too.

I may be in the minority, but this is the type of stuff I love in sports. I love when it becomes personal and when there are real rivalries. It's painfully obvious that Favre is coming back to get even with Packers management. Its a little petty but its real and I respect that from a player. It shows a stubborn streak of epic proportions and it shows someone who is super competitive and wants to go out a winner on his terms. We shall see what happens and I love storylines like this. MNF in October is going to be awesome. Vikes v Packers.

That's for damn sure. I've been enjoying the past couple weeks of actual football on NFLTA (other than the Vick bs). Now it's going to be a full hour of Favre every day.

Honestly, I don't mind him coming back. It's just all the media attention that rubs me the wrong way.

My guess is that he'll be playing with their 1's against our 1's, but regardless of his performance, nobody will care how he does until the regular season.

As far as Sage, I appreciate what he did while he was with the Texans, and from what I've read, and the interviews I've heard him do, he seems to be a great guy, but the reality is there's not a team in the NFL (including the Texans) who wouldn't be looking to upgrade the QB position if Sage were their starter. I realize that it's a big question as to whether the Vikings have done that, but my guess is even if Favre is a 1-year (or less) solution, the Vikings will be looking at next years draft/free agent class for their QB of the future.

Sage is capable of going on tears where he plays very well and we all wish him the best in Minnesota (right up until his success conflicts in any way with our own) so I think it would be hilarious if Favre returned and then couldn't win the job because Sage was having one of his runs.

According to Chris Carter, Favre will be starting on Friday night (3-days from now) against the Chiefs.

The Circus will still be going strong 10 days later when we play them on Monday night - especially since it's a nationally televised game. Call it a hunch, but I'm thinking ESPN probably won't be playing up the "Sage Rosenfels returns to Houston to battle his former team" angle.

I have a desperate need to see Mario Williams and Conner Barwin crush Brett Favre out of existence. I'm not necessarily calling for intentional injury but I can't deny that seeing the Texans defense put Sage back in the starters spot wouldn't be fun. After what Jared Allen did to Schaub last season I think it would be a karma kind of thing.

3rd preseason game, starters play the most time of any preseason matchup. I think this is going to be a great game to watch.

Exactly. None of this Jared Allen cheap shot stuff. I don't condone that and would never want to see our players do it. Just really intense football like the game matters as opposed to the usual sleepwalking preseason mess. I'm glad we're going to see this when in preseason week 3 because that's when the teams game plan and "sort-of" go all out. for a half. I'd like to see the Texans welcome him back to the NFL with some real contact. Some puppy like Barwin who's trying to impress the coaches and who has those young rookie "fresh legs" gets free and knocks Brett back into the early 90's until the smelling salts come out and wake him up would be a lot of fun to watch.

You took my post right out of this thread. I kept thinking how I wanted Mario and Barwin to show what they got so the rest of the world can see.

Based on what you pointed out about that being week 3 preseason, I'm circling the game on the schedule as we speak.

I'm sure Sage is sending texts, emails, and letters to all in Houston and they all say " Hey guys, I just wanted to ask if yall could hook "it" up for me. I came through when you needed it...okay, most of the time. But can't yall just do me this one favor? I won't ask again."

I would like to see the end of Favre but the more I think about it I don't want that to come at a cost to The Texans. You know that it would be called a cheap shot and whichever Texan did it would get suspended. Especially since Farve's media replacement Mark Sanchez is going to be without two starters for his defense come 09-13-09. Anything they can do to help Marky will be done right away.

Poor Sage - This guy can't catch a break.

When it looked like he might have a chance to compete for a starting spot in Houston, we brought in Matt.

It looks like he is the front runniner in Minn., and they bring in Brett.

You have to think he is going to have an opportunity to play at some point in the season. I think it is unlikely that BF can last all season without getting knicked up.

It is easy to get caught up by last year's Indy game - which, but the way, still makes me completely sick to my stomach - but the guy did all that he was asked of here and played pretty well. I think he could be a good starting QB in the league. Minn was a good fit - he wouldn't be asked to do too much with their running game.

I'd rather see one of our big boys legally fall on Jared Allen's legs and take him out this season. What he did to Schaub last year was just low-life scumbag crap, IMO.

As far as Favre, I don't get the hate for the guy. Yeah, hate the hype, but the dude is who he is and someone is willing to pay him to play. That's life in the NFL.

The problem that I have with Favre returning is that the Texans are going to be psyched up. Maybe a bit TOO psyched up. I mean I know it's just a preseason game but I can't help but get excited. I have to keep reminding myself... It's just preseason. It's just preseason. Albeit it being just a preseason game... I'm fairly certain that the Texans are now treating it as a regular season game since it's nationally televised in addition to the return of Brett Favre. I just want us to play our reps and get the heck out of dodge intact. We need to be gameplanning against the Jets. Not Brett Favre. I'm treating the Minnesota game as a real test to our run stopping abilities more than anything. Brett defrays from that.

Don't get me wrong. I'm a HUGE Brett Favre fan. I'm really really happy he's back in the league. He's still a gunslinger. I'm with DoubleBarrell here. It's just the media hyping up Favre's desire and turning it into a saga.

With his severe biceps tear, he will be looking for other muscle groups to compensate, putting significant additional stresses on the already "a little pregnant" rotator cuff. Sage will regain the driver's seat sooner than later.

A big positive for Favre is that they won't rely on his arm nearly as much as previous teams did, simply because they have one of - if not the - best RB in the league right now.

I honestly don't feel bad for Sage. I've gotten over his Rosencopter meltdown that was the difference between 8-8 and 9-7, but I really have no reason to root for him or Favre. They're just players to me.

And c'mon, as a backstory in the NFL, you can't help but find amusement in Favre playing for the Vikings, of all teams. It's good entertainment! :popcorn:

So much hatred for Favre, come on wishing for him to get hurt is a bit much. The guy is obviously having a hard time leaving the game. I can't imagine playing the game like he has for 15 years and then have to leave. He hasn't been the only QB to ever do this and he won't be the last.

I am jealous if anything.

I'm rather tired of Favre myself - but I can certainly understand not wanting to quit something you love just because your arm doesn't work as it once did. I don't think you can beat even an injured Favre in the locker room. If I were a player, I can't think of anyone still playing I'd rather play with for no other reason than his love for the game is contagious.

I'm with you. I watched the Vike's preseason game and Sage moved the offense effectively. So unless they plan to dump T.Jackson, I don't know why they needed Brett Favre.

I have a desperate need to see Mario Williams and Conner Barwin crush Brett Favre out of existence. I'm not necessarily calling for intentional injury but I can't deny that seeing the Texans defense put Sage back in the starters spot wouldn't be fun. After what Jared Allen did to Schaub last season I think it would be a karma kind of thing.

3rd preseason game, starters play the most time of any preseason matchup. I think this is going to be a great game to watch.

I am wondering if there will be some extra emphasis, by the Texans' defensive players, when we play Minnesota, to try and let Brett know that they still have a former Texans' player's back.

Brett Favre has issues. Deep issues.

This is beyond the "Aw shucks, I just wanna' go out there and play one more time" attitude that he and others are trying to project upon the situation.

This is a guy who loves attention, to an extreme, and he loves to see how much he can make people squirm. I honestly think he's unable to cope with the idea of NOT being in the spotlight.

And he doesn't care who he damages or inconveniences along the way. In fact, being destructive IS part of his motive IMO.

Lump this guy into the same bucket that contains other self-seeking, egotistical, and insecure professional athletes, as far as I am concerned. And it's a pretty short list, btw. Some people do this thing once. Others take it to a whole new level.

This only ends badly. Which will be of his own doing. If you can't hack training camp, battling out a roster spot the good old fashioned way, then how could you feel that you are a leader on the team? Haven't you, by your actions and the willing enabling of others who look at you like you're a $5 scratch-off ticket, placed yourself as a novelty instead of the guy who was there with you through all the hard work and time spent alongside the other guys?

I have a feeling Brett will have someone help him get suited up on Sunday. Maybe he can be golf-carted down to the field in front of the other players as they run behind the cart. Will he have to throw the ball, or will the league allow Sage to run in and throw it for him?

LOL. What a freaking nonsensical thing. I'm going to have to watch "Groundhog Day" to find out how to wake up from the same thing that keeps happening each season.

Why in the hell are people so passionate about whether this guy plays football or not???????????????? WHAT THE HELL???

It doesn't make any sense why people are mad, upset, emotionally charge, or whatever you want to call it, about whether a man makes a living on a football field or not. Why in the hell does that matter to ANYBODY????

Other than f'ing up your fantasy draft (where if you drafted a Viking QB it's f'd up anyway), but my God man....the reaction by people about what this guy does or doesn't or does or doesn't.....why the F does that matter so much to you? Who bleeping cares??

If the man wants to play AND somebody wants him on their team....MORE FREAKING POWER TO YOU.

I will never get why people HAVE to know if he's gonna retire or not. Why you WISH he'd make up his mind. I just don't get it. Who cares? As long as it's not the Texans, I don't give a flying rat's ass what he does or how he does it.

I don't give a crap if he plays or not. I don't give a crap if he can't make up his mind about retiring or not. I don't give a crap if he does it a million years in a row. Who am I to say a man needs to stop doing something he loves?

I hope you are not referring to Rosenfail because I doubt any Texans player cares to show him they got his back since he said the Vikings were the best team he has ever played.

If anything any defensive player better be putting this extra emphasis on tackling and hitting because of what happen to Schaub last year.

Actually Speedy, what is unbelievable is we won't get half the news about what is going on around the league or get less news on our team because this asshat is going to be the running headline for another week straight.

Perhaps if he could just sign and do his thing and we didn't have to hear about how his sweat is equivalent to rain from the heavens we could freaking manage to move on and put our lives back together. But hell no, it's all about him, ROLL TAPE!

Unbelievable is exactly right.

Most of us are sick of hearing about it, year after year. He decided to leave Green Bay, so Green Bay decided to move on with their back up who had been groomed to take his spot. A couple months go by and Bretty boy decides he's not done. Calls up the ole Pack, says hey your boyfriend is back. Well, they are not having it. Seems they made a decision and they are prepared *gasp* to stick with it, despite all the media and even their own fans critizing them for sticking to their guns. Farve gets pissed, wants to play for the Vikes so he can try and beat them and make 'em pay. Doesn't work out, already committed to come out of retirement and goes to the Jets. Fast forward another year and its SSDD (same shit different day). He's doing it all out of spite, he's coming in to get back at the Packers, now one more player will have to be cut from the team (someone trying to make a living an provide for their family I might add) just so he can play with an INJURY and pump his consecutive start record and try and beat his old team. It's ego-centric, he's a selfish asshat, and he's tarnished his image.

But hey, if the media didn't have devote so much f'n coverage to the same story we have all seen a dozen times, I probably would not give 2 shits......but that's just me.

Sage will be a good soldier

Though questions remain whether Tarvaris Jackson will rebel in the wake of the arrival of Brett Favre (Jackson says he won't), there are no such concerns regarding the mindset of Sage Rosenfels.

Per a league source, Rosenfels plans on being a good solider.

And that makes sense. Rosenfels has never been a starter, so he's losing nothing. For him, the only reality is that he will no longer have a chance to compete for the starting job.

But Rosenfels will be in position to replace Favre, if his rotator cuff tears the rest of the way, either because his rotator cuff has torn or because it hasn't torn but the team and/or Favre will say it has torn simply because he has lost his fastball.

Moreover, unless the Third Annual Favre Retirement becomes the Third Annual Favre Unretirement, Rosenfels will be the guy in 2010 -- with a full year to learn the system.

He was never one of my favorite QB's. I think he's over-rated. But you can't argue against the numbers. The guy is a sure-fire HOF.

I just don't want to hear about him any more.

In his press conference, his response to people like me was "Don't watch." The problem with that is that he's all over NFLN and ESPN. I'm not trying to watch him, I just can't NOT watch him. If I could NOT watch him, I would. Or something like that.

What he said.... again. It's weariness. It's like watching reruns for 4-5 years straight. It's like the annual Roger Clemens show. I don't care if he comes back but it would be nice if he wouldn't turn it into a 3-4 month soap opera every year. Other aging players deal with these same exact issues. "Can my body take it?", "Do I still want to do this?" They don't have to play it out in front of enough cameras to make it a 24 hour reality TV show every single year.

Then about 3-4 years ago he started this retirement stuff. Fine if it happens once..maybe twice but we are going on what...6-7 times now..sometimes multiple times in one year. To me he is an attention whore. If you aren't sure, keep your mouth shut because of the media. He knows this. He forced Green Bays hand yet he tries to convince people that they showed him the door unfairly.

He has alienated teammates and people are losing it if they think he didn't see a cash grab here and change his mind again. The media sucks with it but Favre tarnished his own image.

You're exactly right Speedy. It amazes me how many sports fans across the country are to thick to understand that this is all on ESPN. Favre is just one guy that either wants to play or doesn't want to play. ESPN is the culprit that decides to make this the biggest story year after year. Then they complain about it as well, like the hypocrites that they are on that trash can of a network, but continue to cover it non stop. ESPN has ruined his legacy here not Favre. He's just an indecisive person that can't ever decide on what he wants to do and all his decisions haven't been the right ones obviously, but ESPN is the network that won't get off of this.

This just makes me think the guy is broke, or headed for being broke, and he has GOT to play (for the cash grab).

Remember how Michael Jordan had a bad gambling habit? These pro athletes are sometimes doing what they're doing...not because they want to anymore, but because they have to.

He's either got some pretty messed up behavioral & coping problems, or he's in debt up to his ears and there's no end in sight.

My family is pretty good friends with Terry Funk (the pro wrestler). I grew up around the guy, from the age of 5 or 6. I've hung out with him in my college years because he lived near the college campus. Terry would "retire" from wrestling, then he'd be back in the mix again...or over in Japan for a few months (they love him in Japan), and it was always because he had mismanaged his finances and he needed the money to make it through another year. He has retired and un-retired about 15 times in the past 15 years.

All I know is that it's gotten comical with Favre.

Hooray for pro athletes who have the courage and the sense to stop when they need to.

I don't think anybody can say who was at fault in the Favre vs Packer situation. According to Favre's side, it was Green Bay that forced him out. I don't think anybody knows who started the rumors of him coming back or not either.

It's all speculative at this point, but I can see how both sides would have a solid argument.

Then blame them as well. Send them a letter or an email. That is still THE MEDIA who has chosen to make Favre their material over everything else. He's not getting paid extra money over being their main subject or material. You guys make it seem like he worked out some extra deal with ESPN and NFL network where he said he would come back if they paid him big bucks so they could cover him non stop. He's not benefiting from any of this, and it's the exact opposite. He's losing tons of fans from the media coverage on him. Hell, he should have just as much of a beef with the media as fans like you who hate him now for it. Their constant coverage has made his reputation much worse and gotten so many people so sick and tired of him. But again, that's the media, not him making them do it.

Has your children's grades dropped because of it? If Favre held a news conference every day of the off-season saying NO, and then a week before the season starts he signs with somebody, why do you care?

People are so sick of the Farve stuff yet they keep tuning in to everyone reporting it. Then they come to message boards and talk about it some more. If you're sick of it, don't watch ESPN, don't read an article about him, don't click on a thread about him, don't make a post about him.

I didn't even know Favre signed until 11:00 last night. I don't get it forced down my throat like most seem to be because I don't watch the crap that is ESPN. And when I've had my fill of it here, I won't click on another thread about it.

Pretty simple to me.


So people can't vent on here anymore or what. Yesterday I was not having the best day and was sick of hearing about what color Favre's poop was and then I come on here and get beat up for it. I expect you both to go around policing everyone on here if they are ranting about something from here on out........Sheesh.

I, personally, enjoy a good rant. I like to read another person's rant from time to time, like the Pet Peeves thread, it's theraputic or something. I see everyone on here do it from time to time. Hell, Herv has the best rants I think I ever seen, I get a kick out of reading them because every once in awhile I just want to ***** about something too and blow of some steam about something that irritates the crap out of me.

What's it matter where I get my sports news? (mostly NFLN BTW) When a one hour show is consumed by 40 mins of the same ole crap it just gets old. And the media is to blame, sure, and so if Favre, he likes the drama, he likes the attention.

PS Favre is still an asshat.

I'm sorry Harcore Texan if you took it personally, and I just wanted to point out that your rant should be more centered at ESPN and the NFL network for making this Favre saga what it is. I'd argue that the Vick saga is even worse actually, because Vick has only had like two good seasons in his entire career and has missed the last two seasons, and he still gets talked about over and over and lately there has been a lot more Vick talk than Favre talk with the exception of the last two days. I understand why you're sick and tired of Favre and I am as well, the same way I am about Vick especially, but I can't blame Vick or Favre because ESPN won't let go of this thing they have with constantly talking about them on and on and on. Vick is just a guy coming out of prison who is trying to keep a low profile as he re-enters the league, and it isn't his fault that ESPN chooses to talk about him over and over, nor is it Favre's either. My post towards you wasn't to denounce you or what your feelings were, but simply to put things in perspective of where the real blame here should go which is the media who won't stop covering this.

I love this twitter quote by Eric Winston I read in today's Sporting News Today:

Man, how bad did Favre play the Vikings and get everything he wanted? No camp. Check! $10 million. Check! Super Bowl. We'll see.

Favre needs to fall into a black hole. If there's one large enough to suck that ego into it.

I just wanted to point out that it's not just the fans who are tired of all the Favre and Vick hoopla.

Quote from Mario:

(on how Saints RB Reggie Bush could care less about what the media has to say about their relationship) "That's what the media is about, man, rough stories. I will say this, I'm getting tired of seeing (Minnesota Vikings QB) Brett Favre and (Philadelphia Eagles QB) Michael Vick on TV, and I'm sure they are, too."

Something tells me he might have picked up a couple of pennies for it. He might even sue Sears and himself for harm to reputation, gain more press, and pick up a few more pennies while he's at it.:shades:

Actually, he was doing a pretty good job of putting the ball where the receivers were supposed to be. The problem was that they weren't there.

The man does seem to know that offense already. The problem is he doesn't know his receivers, yet. And his receivers don't seem to know the offense, yet.

I wasn't a big Favre fan before all this retirement mess. But I guess I'm a hater now. It's probably bad Karma but I don't want him to do well. I'd prefer Sage get in there and take this job.

I'd prefer Sage get in there and take this job.It was just one game last night and I am looking for Brett to open things up a bit more in his next game. I'm a Sage fan also and I think he'll get the starting job back around midseason due to an injury to pretty boy Brett Farve.

This article is worth reading, and reflects many of the thoughts that I have on the subject. There are those of you who are excited to see Favre back in uniform, just like there are those excited about seeing Vick in a uniform other than jump suit orange. Both returns will turn out to be fiascos. But, Vick can only hope to squeeze in the back door for a back door role, whereas Favre, being given the "keys to the city" stands to destroy the makeup, morale and entire season of an otherwise success-bound team. This move was based on some higher-up's faith............not blind faith..........but, just down right dumb faith.

Prima donna Favre ruins a good thing (http://www.qctimes.com/sports/columnists/doxsie/article_295b97f2-8f9a-11de-8d35-001cc4c03286.html)

As soon as he said Taveras has shown a glimpse of competence I stopped reading because right then and their the author proves to have zero football IQ. Oh and Sage was not signed as a FA in the offseason .. the Texans traded Sage to the Vikings.

Another hack writer who goes with the flow without having an original thought of his own.

The statement of a "glimpse" of competence is no different than our own staff having said the same of players such as Okam. Labelling Sage as a FA? Doesn't change much of anything in this situation. Respected writers have slipped up in their articles much worse than this benign example.

This may lead some trying to say the author demonstrates zero football IQ, but the same cannot be said of his level of common sense.
