Favre says he wasn't guaranteeing anything

Brett Favre has been playing football long enough to know the potential impact of an opponent who gets a little too loose in the lips.

And so he’s now trying to throw water on the import of a potentially inflammatory comment he made a day ago.

“Honestly, I see us sitting here next week having
this press conference again,” Favre said during a Wednesday press conference.  “If that doesn’t happen, to
me, it will be a shock.”

Widely interpreted as a guarantee of sorts, Favre now insists that he was guaranteeing nothing.

“Well, first of all, I’m not guaranteeing anything
and the last thing I ever want to do is be bulletin board material,”
Favre said Thursday, according to Rick Alonzo of the St. Paul Pioneer Press.  “Of course, I gave the Cowboys a ton of respect, as they
deserve.  They are playing outstanding.  That’s not B.S.  They are
playing, and I’m speaking NFC, as well if not the best, maybe in the
league.  San Diego, obviously, would argue that.  But I was not
guaranteeing.”

It might be too little and too late to prevent the Cowboys from being charged up to disrupt Favre’s plan to talk to reporters in advance of the NFC title game.  Dallas safety Gerald Sensabaugh already has responded, and the Cowboys already have proven the power of external motivation, given the way they’ve played since Tony Dungy of Football Night In America said they had “no chance” to beat the Saints.

Cowboys play-by-play announcer Brad Sham told Tim Brando of Sporting News Radio earlier this week that Dungy’s comments had a real impact on the Cowboys, who knocked off the Saints and haven’t lost a game since.

Whether Favre’s comments have a similar impact remains to be seen.

    Overblown. Happens all the time. Who cares?

  2. jimmySee says: Jan 14, 2010 7:49 PM

    Brett knows better than to incite any opponent — but that doesn’t necessarily stop him from doing so. But in the end, he has always spoken with his arm and playmaking abilities.

  3. Contra says: Jan 14, 2010 7:52 PM

    MIKE….FLORIO…MIKE FLORIO…ENGOUH ALREADY! This was over with the first time you posted it, then again when you posted a Cowboy remark. ENOUGH. I know its a slow day at the office what with all the coach hirings/firings but just spare us with this crap ok?

  4. leatherneck says: Jan 14, 2010 7:54 PM

    Favre said “Tomato.”
    Florio: Favre said “Cheeseburger.”
    It’s just not believable, Florio. We don’t believe you in your lies about what Favre said.

  5. chunky soupy sales says: Jan 14, 2010 7:54 PM

    I will actually agree with Ol queeny here. It was pretty weak as far as ” guarantee’s” go and I don’t think he meant disrespect, especially compared to ” we gone sting dat ace”( 34-14) or spitting in the Star before the big game. He said what a QB should say, we expect to win”.
    Having said that though, if he doesn’t do that, those words are going to be repeated to infinity and he knows this. He maybe better use it to motivate himself.

  6. nyj-gate D says: Jan 14, 2010 7:54 PM

    I see what you’re saying Florio, the Cowboys probably weren’t going to play very hard in this playoff game but then Favre came along and said that he expects to be playing the following week. Now, the Cowboys feel insulted and will actually try to beat the Vikings. Why does the media feel so inclined to write about this $hit? It doesn’t matter what anybody says before the game, everyone is going to play their best football, that’s the bottom line.

  7. Chapnasty2 says: Jan 14, 2010 7:54 PM

    “Cowboys already have proven the power of external motivation, given the way they’ve played since Tony Dungy of Football Night In America said they had “no chance” to beat the Saints.”
    Didn’t know Dungy said this, I guess more proof as to why no one should listen to a word that comes out of his mouth.
    And Lord Florio, not one reader/commenter on this website thinks Favre guaranteed anything. That was you, Rosenthal and other media types trying to drum up some drama.

  8. AxleRose says: Jan 14, 2010 7:55 PM

    Please, give it up!
    This is not news, he was talking confidently, what should he have said, Goodbye, we will lose Sunday so this is it?

    Sensa”BRA”, needs to be run over by Adrian a couple times, that will enlighten him with the truth. The Vikings are the better team, particularly at home.
    Your goose is cooked, Cowboys.
    If you think Randy Moss lit you up on Turkey Day, think what FAVRE, PETERSON, and ALLEN will do.

  12. JimmySmith says: Jan 14, 2010 8:05 PM

    I would think Favre would be more interested in not throwing an INT in OT (twice in his last three playoff games) or avoid throwing 6 INT’s in the same playoff game, he if could just guarantee that it would be an improvement.
    The one guarantee I will make is the Biqueen fans will come out in force on this blog (probably because they don’t have to actually buy a ticket) to claim certain victory. If dilusional fans talking about winning a Superbowl could equate to actually winning one, the Vikings would have 30 by now with all the smack talk they’ve been hurling around. But alas, their trophy case is as empty as their boasts.

  13. RealPervyHarvin says: Jan 14, 2010 8:06 PM

    Words are just that-words. When you compete at a high level,he says-she says don’t mean jack shit. Bulletin board and smack talk are used by the fans for hype more than the athlete. In boxing it is very common for both fighters to talk more crap than any sport around. When you go to the ring though,it’s the talent that wins,not pre fight hype talk. Notice it was Shram talking the impact of Dungy’s comments,not the players.Whether it’s Favre or Sensabaugh throwing some pre game juice,won’t matter. The best team will win on Sunday.

    Thats a bunch of crap.When a team wins they tell you they were fired up from the comments,when they lose you don’t hear anything.The game will be won on the field and if a team needs extra motivation for this game,they shouldn’t be there…

  16. Notoroius B.U.G. says: Jan 14, 2010 8:11 PM

    Big deal. He expects his team to win. What’s he supposed to say “I’d be surprised if we’re sitting here next Sunday?”
    JimmySmith: As a Viking fan, I’m far from claiming certain victory. Cowboys are playing well. Let the chips fall where they may and let the best team win on Sunday.
    Now go back into your little hole and shove your thumb back up your arse.

Dallas you have had a couple of good weeks but heavy wears the crown! I hope the vikings are as fired up as the fans are! MISSION MIAMI! Skol! Vikings! Skol!

    ============================
    At least he didn’t fumble and then all of a sudden think he was playing kickball.
    All after holding the ball for 4.5 seconds.
    Your Qb can’t play at crunchtime.
    He sure has pretty stats though.

  26. sand0 says: Jan 14, 2010 8:23 PM

    I read the entire interview and it was more Dallas ass kissing than anything else by Brett. Certainly you can focus on one response to a question asked but half the crap he said was just about how great the Cowboys are playing and all that crap.
    Reporters just get these huge boners when anything remotely close to a “guarantee” occurs.
    It is really sad that we have to make a story about implied guarantees. As if an actual stated guarantee by a player isn’t a dead horse to begin with now we need to invent more guarantees to beat on. Super lame. Just takes media time away from more interesting angles of the game.
    But the NFL is made into as much of a soap opera as anything else these days so whatever. It is what it is. Non-scripted WWE with pads and a little less steroids.

    Sensabaugh doesn’t get run over. He’s one of the best cover safeties in the league and he’s not afraid to knock the anyone either.
    Minnesota hasn’t played a defense like Dallas this year. They’re going to get roasted.

  40. Gunther69 says: Jan 14, 2010 9:02 PM

    It never ends. Making something out of nothing. I hope he’d be shocked if the Vikings lose. Everybody involved, should think they’re going to win, both the Vikings and Cowboys. What’s wrong with that? Didn’t you play sports? If you did, did you think you were going to lose? I bet your teammates appreciated that. I wouldn’t want a teammate that thought they were going to lose.

  41. Gergie says: Jan 14, 2010 9:05 PM

    If you need bulletin board material to get you to play up to your potential, then you have other issues.
    Now if you get personal with the other team then that’s another story.
    This is much ado about nothing.

    As has been remarked repeatedly, this was a non-story to begin with. You don’t suppose anyone else on either team said anything that made it sound like they expected to win do you?

    Come on Florio, I say one more by midnight !

  46. McCormack10 says: Jan 14, 2010 9:14 PM

    Anybody ever notice how the “smack talk” and “guarantees” tend to fall in the same category as the Win or Loss in the end. If a team wins, “They were the more confidant team, and Brett’s such a great locker room force, and they all played better just to back him up.” but in a loss it’s “What a silly mistake to fire up an already hot Cowboys squad.”
    Listen, I don’t have a problem with it, but thats why you’re getting all this hate posting directed at you Mr. Florio. Is it warranted, No. Is this post ultimately going to go down in your own book of great PFT updates as a meaningless filler, Absolutely.
    However, you could do yourself a favor and write on Sunday evening about how the losing team played genuinely inspired football because of the Favre comment and in doing so, really buck the trend of just preaching about their impact with 20/20 hindsight.

  47. Myballshurt says: Jan 14, 2010 9:18 PM

    And there you have it…BRETT FAVRE once more resurfaces on Dick Florio’s site.
    If the Cowboys….a team that won there first playoff game in 11-12 years….needs something like this to “get fired up” in a Divisional game, they are in serious trouble.
    You want bulletin board material……go talk to Rex Ryan. Where is all the angst from Mr. Flo over this Dick. Oh yea….Rex don’t sell….Brett Favre IS the NFL and Mrs. Florio knows this.

    Favre,

    I, MNFANINAZ guarantee that the Vikings will absolutely embarrass the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday, December 17th, 2010 @ Metrodome.
    We kicked the Sh*t out of the Baltimore Ravens (up 27 – 10 in the 4th quarter) and the Ravens are a better team than the ‘Boys. This game is going to be a rude awakening for the idiots at ESPN (you know, every idiot that picked the Packers to win) and all the rest of you Cowboy swallowers.
    The Vikings will kill Dallas… you heard it from me, Thee MNFANINAZ!

Florio went from a respected reporter to a qualified Enquirer reporter. …….all BF said was what any damn player would say and that was speak with a level of confidence. If Florio keeps up this type of B.S., I will join others who have left his PFT……he tries to yell fire when there isn’t even smoke…grow up Florio. Lawyers are notorious for putting words in people’s mouths and Florio is further proof of that.

  52. joseph says: Jan 14, 2010 9:37 PM

    After watching this guy for 16 years…I know he WILL blow it in the playoffs, be this weekend or be next weekend, it will definitely happen. People talk about how great he is…can someone tell me how many Super Bowls he made it to WITHOUT Reggie White on his team? These stats are pulled from another article:
    “Since beating the 49ers in the 1997 NFC championship game, Favre has gone an ugly 3-7 in the playoffs. His passer rating over his past 12 playoff games is a less-than-sterling 77.8.”
    Why would anyone think this year will be different? Let’s not forget two throws in OT playoff games that not even a Pee Wee league Football player would make. 6 INTs in another??? Are you kidding me? In a playoff game? We all know the ‘Queens’ are one the of the biggest franchise chokers in any sport come playoff time each and every year. Brett Favre is one of the most pompous and arrogant athletes in history. He hides this by sounding humble, trying to make us believe he doesn’t know how he makes the great plays that he does, but he is just as bad as Terrell Owens. He has made almost as many moronic, idiotic plays in his career as great plays. I saw almost every single game in his Packer career and needless to say I am more than confident that by the time his career is over, Aaron Rodgers will have more Super Bowl titles than Brett Favre. Trent Dilfer has won as many titles as Brett, Brad Johnson has won as many as Brett, Mark Rypien…should I keep going? If he would’ve played smart like he is this season with the Vikings he would have more titles, but the bottom line is that he is too damn arrogant to take the easy passes. I CAN NOT WAIT for the Vikings to lose, as I said be it this week or next week, it will happen. They will NOT be in the Super Bowl.

    Wow, can’t believe all the viking fans on here!
    The dopes on here saying Minn is clearly the better team and Dallas has no shot clearly doesn’t know the game.
    Fact: Dallas is red hot – winners of 4 tough games in a row. They won solidly against an undefeated team in their own building after no one believed they could, they shutout their most hated rival in their place, and posted two home back-to-back blowouts vs. another hated division opponent. All 3 phases are playing well, with possibly an exception for the FG kicker. He even contributed last week.
    Fact: Minn won their last game vs. the Giants who had already packed it in for the winter. Before that, they lost to Cutler (come on, really), and the week before was blown out of by an 8-8 Carolina team.
    Both teams have very good skill players on both sides. IMO, the Fav-re vs Dallas thing and the home field noise should play very little into it. Dallas is playing almost flawless and I would honestly be surprised if they didn’t win this game by more than 10 pts.
    Dallas 31
    Minn 17
