Vikings quarterback Brett Favre, who’ll be facing the Packers after playing in Green Bay for 16 seasons, says that he’s not out for revenge, and that he merely wants to win a Super Bowl.
Faced with his quote from February 2009 that he was hoping last year to “stick it” to the Packers, Favre admitted that he wants to show them that he can still play.
Frankly, it’s a matter of semantics. The Packers pushed Favre to make a decision about playing football in 2008 at a time when they knew he wouldn’t be able to make the commitment. Then, they bolted the door shut and pushed furniture in front of it.
So when he decided to come back, it was too late. But then they dicked him around, hoping to keep him from playing for anyone, even after (by all appearances) they had engineered his First Annual Retirement.
Should he be pissed? Hell yes. Should he want revenge? Damn straight. (Can I squeeze some more swear words into thist post? F–kin’ A.)
But he’s not dumb enough to admit to the Green Bay media during a pregame conference call.
And if there’s any doubt that he wants to stick it to the Packers for what they did to him last year, just watch how he plays on Monday night.
