Brett Favre has announced he will return to the NFL for one more season if the Southern Mississippi Golden Eagles return to the College World Series for a second year in a row.

The offseason drama begins again.

Deja vu, anyone?

Favre hangs NFL future on CWS
(http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=5205640)
HATTIESBURG, Miss. -- Brett Favre says he still isn't sure what he's doing next season, but he may have given some indication after visiting with the Southern Miss baseball team.

The Minnesota Vikings quarterback told the Golden Eagles on Thursday morning that if they can make it back to the College World Series for the second straight year, he will return for one more season in the NFL.

Favre has left fans hanging since the Vikings lost to New Orleans in the NFC Championship game. He signed a two-year contract with the Vikings before last season. Coach Brad Childress hasn't talked with Favre recently except by text message.

Southern Miss players have a lot of work to do if they want to force Favre into action. They are 30-20 and need wins to earn a postseason invitation.

Haha, gotta love Favre. While some people may get tired of his antics, I find them entertaining. The guy loves the game, no one can argue that. I'm hoping he does come back for another year, regardless of the outcome of this bet.

I am sick of his crap now. I have always thought it is his right to play for as long as he wants and even have supported him ever since his dispute with Green Bay. This is nuts. I only supported him because I had never thought he'd continue to drag this saga out for this long. How long is he going to play his little game? Now he is wagering his comeback on the stupid college worldseries. Is he for real? No, it is unreal. Either play or don't. I do not buy the fact that your career depends on NCAA baseball. It should not be like that because you are you and they are them. Oh, please give me a break. Each time you take a hit you are doing your body more harm so you better think twice. This just becomes more insane every year IMO.

He proved last season he can still play no doubt but I still think his time is drawing near due to his age. He is the age where his career may take a turn for the worst at any time. I just wish he'd tell all of us yes or no and move. Also, the media is blowing this story way out of proportion as they do 90 percent of the time. If he does come back I would probably watch him on T.V. though.

I agree with you completely. I honestly believe barring any serious injury, he can play for another 2 years at a fairly high level. The only thing that annoys me about Favre during the off-season is the media that whores itself with all that "Favre Watch" BS.

Not trying to correct you so much as inform. I always felt he was an Oiler forever, and the Raiders just got him in the twilight of his career.

I remember watching him play qb for the Oilers and how pissed the town was that Bud let him get away.

If you pay attention to what he said and didn't say, you'll see he said he'd play again if they made it to the CWS - he never said he wouldn't if they didn't.

Favre's coming back whether Southern Miss makes it to Omaha or not - take it to the bank (Sorry Sage and Tarvaris).

I'll never understand why people care so much about what Favre does if it doesn't effect their team. The reason why Favre does what he does is because the teams let him for one and don't put their foot down. GB finally did and he had to leave the team and go play for a team that he had no interest in playing for. He hated playing over there, so he did in fact have to do something he didn't want to do because of his little act and caught the consequences. Now he's with Minnesota and they're letting him do the same thing he did to GB for years. He completely turned around that offense though and gave them a real chance to make a SB and they barely fell short. He'll end up coming back for one more season and I'll be enjoying every minute of watching another season of Favre. He made some of the most amazing plays I've ever seen last year and hopefully he can still wow people. He doesn't effect my Texans in any way, so I've got no reason to care how long he drags things out. It's up to the team to put their foot down though.

Used to be a big Brett Favre fan, but... the past few years have just been brutal. I'm sick of hearing about the guy and how he drags the off-season out.

Really at this point I'd be fine if he just said something like " Hey I want to play another year, but I don't want to do OTAs, TC or reall any off-season team activities."

At least it'd be through.

This is the only thing that bothers me about Favre watch. Favre's one of my favorites a like watching the way he plays the game. I don't really have an issue with his off-season pondering. It's the blasted media that just chaps my hide. I mean, there came a time in the off-season last year were I missed a few NFLTA shows due to them stalking Favre. I treat NFLTA like my local news, so yeah, it's a big deal if I miss one. Ha

Well it's got to happen at some point. The thing is that people have been saying that he was going to slide off like 4 seasons ago. Lol! I remember hearing people try saying he was done in like 2005. I think he can still probably have a pretty good season. Don't think he'll play as good as last year, but they need to get their running game back in order. Peterson was good last season, but he wasn't near as good as he had been in the two seasons prior to last. I'm hoping that Gerhart can get a lot of carries this season and take a lot of the load off of AP. Plus, Harvin should be pretty well improved and hopefully Rice can have another year like that again.

I don't mean fall off the map slide, just return to normalcy. That was his first season over a 100 QB rating. His career average is 86 and four and five seasons ago he posted back to back low 70's. I expect him to do well but I expect more INT's and more average Favre play as well.

Yeah we'll definitely see more INT's. A lot of people don't realize that he had the lowest INT's in the entire league last season. He had like 7 or something like that.

That is a joke. You clearly don't like the guy to say something so ridiculous. He threw the least amount of INT's last season and was right up there with all of the other QB's as far as TD's thrown. Players around him don't help him not to throw INT's when that's been the worst part of his game throughout his entire career. Rice hadn't done anything until last season when Favre came in. Their WR's had been under acheiving for years over there. So you're telling me that talent around him is what made Favre able to throw that 60 yard bullet down the field on the last play of the game? Or the game the very next week when he threw another bomb to to put his team in an easy FG position to win the game in the final minute? He was spectacular last season. I laugh every off season when I hear the "Favre needs to retire because he's done" garbage. I've been hearing his bashers say that for like 4 years now and every time they're proven wrong they scatter and disappear only to resurface the next off season to say the same stuff again with no substance to back up the claims other than bringing up his age which hasn't been a factor as of yet.

And the season before that he was on the Jets with Jerrico Cotchery and Lavernous Coles for heaven's sake and Coles was horrible that season and Cotchery is vastly overrated. He's proven by now that he's not cut out to be a #1 WR. Favre had one #2 WR and a #3 WR in Coles. Yeah, that was a lot of talent he had to work with.

If you want to bash him for not making his decisions for years with GB, then fine. But that's a broken record any way. GB sent him packing. If you don't like Favre the person then just say so, but to sit here and say that he wasn't good last year and it was the players around him who stunk it up the years before he got there is just flat out hatred of the guy on a personal level to say something so misinformed. The only guy that was a big time play maker before he got there was Peterson and Peterson and the O line both were worse last year than the year before if you had watched any Vikings games.

Well Gary it's on the Vikings to put their foot down. But last time I checked this isn't hurting the Vikings one bit. It didn't hurt them last off season and the Vikings were just a hair away from going to the SB. Sure it might not be fair to some of his teammates as far as training camp goes, but I'm sure they'd rather have Favre than Sage Rosenfels playing for them. Favre is going to play again this year. He's just dragging this out so he can miss mini camp and training camp probably. But the Vikings are the ones that let him do it and you knew that he was going to take forever to decide this off season so why are you surprised really? The Vikings knew exactly what they were getting themselves into with Favre and at the end of the say they're still better off with him and all of his indecisiveness than they are without him.

I think Brad's got his hands tied man. Brad wants to keep his job by any means possible. Favre helped to save his job last year actually because Childress went into last season on the hot seat big time and then was awarded an extension. The owners in Minnesota know that Favre will sell tickets and keep the fans excited. They're going to do what they have to do to keep Favre happy and around for another year. I don't think Childress has any say so on those matters really at the end of the day. The problem now with the Vikings though is that they are getting old pretty fast now. Their O line is pretty old and they were beaten up last season at the end. The Williams brothers are getting pretty old now as well on the D line. Remember how bad the protection was for Favre in the post season? It was terrible.

Their O line and their DB's were playing pretty bad in the post season last year. I can't even hardly remember who they got in the draft, but they didn't hardly do anything in the off season to improve the team.

It might be to start looking for a replacement now for him. My point is if you wait too long to draft new players and your team stinks because they are getting older then normally the coach will get the blame. And, that type of problem would be beyond his control.

That is a joke. You clearly don't like the guy to say something so ridiculous. He threw the least amount of INT's last season and was right up there with all of the other QB's as far as TD's thrown. Players around him don't help him not to throw INT's when that's been the worst part of his game throughout his entire career. Rice hadn't done anything until last season when Favre came in. Their WR's had been under acheiving for years over there. So you're telling me that talent around him is what made Favre able to throw that 60 yard bullet down the field on the last play of the game? Or the game the very next week when he threw another bomb to to put his team in an easy FG position to win the game in the final minute? He was spectacular last season. I laugh every off season when I hear the "Favre needs to retire because he's done" garbage. I've been hearing his bashers say that for like 4 years now and every time they're proven wrong they scatter and disappear only to resurface the next off season to say the same stuff again with no substance to back up the claims other than bringing up his age which hasn't been a factor as of yet.

And the season before that he was on the Jets with Jerrico Cotchery and Lavernous Coles for heaven's sake and Coles was horrible that season and Cotchery is vastly overrated. He's proven by now that he's not cut out to be a #1 WR. Favre had one #2 WR and a #3 WR in Coles. Yeah, that was a lot of talent he had to work with.

If you want to bash him for not making his decisions for years with GB, then fine. But that's a broken record any way. GB sent him packing. If you don't like Favre the person then just say so, but to sit here and say that he wasn't good last year and it was the players around him who stunk it up the years before he got there is just flat out hatred of the guy on a personal level to say something so misinformed. The only guy that was a big time play maker before he got there was Peterson and Peterson and the O line both were worse last year than the year before if you had watched any Vikings games.

Please, He himself said last year that that viking team he played on was probably the most talented team he's ever played on & it's not a coincidence that he had arguably his best year ever playing with all that talent. What Vikings WR's did before him is of no consequence since we know that they haven't had a starter-worthy qb on their roster FOREVER...........& it also doesn't mean that none of those guys couldn't do anything with out a starting caliber qb.


& Actually yes, talent does help you not throw too many ints, Hell, look at what happened to Jay Cutler once he didn't have a Brandon Marshall to throw to. & you actually made my point for me in your post.

In 2008 with the jets when he effectively had trash around him, he stunk it up in the 2nd half of the season by doing what he does best....throw picks.

In 2007 with the packers when he had an emerging Greg Jennings to pair with Donald Driver & Ryan Grant shoring up the running game he played well. The 2 years before that in GB when he had garbage, take a wild guess as to what he looked like?


Relax, I didn't say he couldn't play anymore, i just said that he's not that positive difference maker anymore that he used to be. At this point, he's just a guy that can be brought in to make you a little more complete, but not to be leaned on too much to win games week in week out ala P. Manning...kind of like Elway in 98-99.

Now that was scary. I wonder if that person is really that weird or that desperate for attention. Or maybe both huh?

At least he got them there, which is more than I can say for the Raiders or the Texans :tiphat:. If Peterson didn't have a major meltdown, Favre being the typical Favre and throwing a few INTs wouldn't have mattered. Not trying to take anything away from the Saints, but the Vikings gave that game away as a team.

Poor Sage Rosenfels. He signed in Minnesota prior to last season looking forward to the chance to compete to be the starter. And then Brett Favre shows up. Rosenfels has really had some tough luck with all of this. I feel bad for him.

He tried to do too much against Indy in 2008 but othwise I think Sage does deserve a chace to at least compete for the starting job on a team.
