Favre plans to "enjoy every minute"

As Vikings quarterback Brett Favre prepares for what could be the last game before his third retirement (and, inevitably, his third unretirement), he says he plans to enjoy every minute of Sunday’s NFC title tilt with the Saints.

Favre says that and more in these clips from Friday’s press conference, along with some brief sound from the raspy baritone that is Coach Chilly.

Enjoy.

    That’s right, Major Dad, you never wanna over prepare. Words of wisdom right there.

    How long is everyone going to keep falling for that good ol’ boy riding a tractor bullsh!+?
    Brett Favre is nothing more than a megalomaniac!!!

    Occam- Don’t hate. You don’t know football son.

    You hate him because he likes his job?

    We Love Brett Farve!!!
    Where is your QB haters?
    That’s right. Home watching the game.
    LOL LOL!

  11. bozz_2006 says: Jan 23, 2010 12:43 AM

    That’s more than he could say about the last game he played for the Packers. He didn’t look like he enjoyed very many minutes of that one.

  12. PackFaninPackLand says: Jan 23, 2010 12:44 AM

    Come on Florio, I bet you can break down his presser and get 30-40 more posts out of it.
    Imagine him enjoying a Conference Championship Game ! And THAT warrants a story ???
    This just in, Favre had breakfast this morning. Gee Olbermann, I mean Florio, what a sad, pathetic little man you are.

  13. cusoman says: Jan 23, 2010 12:51 AM

    @Occam
    He’s only a prima donna to you because you buy into Florio’s obsession. How does it feel to be just a shill?

  14. Mr. Common Sense says: Jan 23, 2010 1:09 AM

    Too bad so many of these clips go unwatched because folks like me just stop them when they see a 30 second commercial lead in.

  15. VonClausewitz says: Jan 23, 2010 1:12 AM

    This is gonna be about the D. Nobody wants to say it but it’s true. The D wins it. They show up and Minny wins. They get beat and Minny loses. No statistics or excuses will ever change it. No second chances or past tense analysis will make it different. In this moment in time if the D is there Minny moves on. End of story.

  16. Gene Simmon's Tongue says: Jan 23, 2010 1:53 AM

    Old man, you are done. Win it ir lose it, you are done!!! Enjoy your retirement!

    Don’t hate Pervy. You don’t get sarcasm, son.

    I think it is obvious… Every Fan Would Agree…
    Brett Favre Playing In The Superbowl will be great theatre… A great build up to the two week wait for Feb 7th.
    Might be the most viewed Superbowl of all time.
    It Would Just Be Great Theatre.
    That is a fact… Even though I have no respect for him, after what he did to the Packers. And how self centered this individual really is.
    Oh I Forgot… Conspiracy Fan.
    Who Believes That This Is All Fixed… And Brett Is Destined To Lead The Vikings To Their First Lombardi Trophy…. Because Minnesota Needs A New Stadium, And A Superbowl Might Just Get The Vikes A New Vote For Public Funding.

    LOVE that the pukerqueers heads are exploding at every step Farve succeeds while your hack QB, Mrs. Rodgers sucked in the playoffs. Losers, get a life. Farve rules and no one cares about the pukers, Mrs. Rodgers or WI. LOL LOL LOL!

  20. MrNatural says: Jan 23, 2010 3:49 AM

    The fact that Favre has a personality and understands he’s been blessed to have a career playing a college boys’ game must really bring discomfort to Patriot fans. I mean, the nerve of a 40 yr old man to have fun instead of being a perfect player who worships his coach’s ass.
    I’d take one Favre over 10 Brady’s or Manning’s for that matter.

  21. Roboto says: Jan 23, 2010 5:38 AM

    I still have sweet memories of The Vikes kicking the Cryboys @$$ last weekend. Now, I won’t have to look at George W. Bush and the very overrated Emmit Smith sitting next to each other in the rich folk seats exchanging vacant smiles.
    I’m still trying to figure out who was the bigger idiot between Tony Romo and Jessica Simpson. Probably a tie.
    Now, all you Packers fans can resume your hatred of Favre.
    Thank you.

  22. Michael LaRocca says: Jan 23, 2010 8:15 AM

    I sure do get a lot of email in the spam box offering me discount Vicodin. Who do they think I am, Brett Favre?

  23. ShruggingGalt says: Jan 23, 2010 8:31 AM

    @bozz_2006:
    THIS.
    I was going to say something just like that, almost perhaps like with 60 seconds left, game tied up 42-42, Vikings driving to kick to game winning FG, he’s on the Saints 40 yard line, throws a Pick-6.
    They get the ball back and he throws another INT to ice the game.

  24. JSS84 says: Jan 23, 2010 8:36 AM

    Were coming to get a victory, and we’re going back home…Vikes on three.

  25. Fan_Of_ Four says: Jan 23, 2010 9:00 AM

    Right….Favre’s a prima-donna. And Tom Brady and Peyton Manning are such great earthy people. F U

  26. bearsrule says: Jan 23, 2010 9:01 AM

    I can’t wait until we’re shown shots of his wife every 30 seconds.

    You really need to quit projecting your hatred man..seriously, settle down.

    BRETT FAVRE FOR PRESIDENT! Vikes by 7 points!

    As a service to PFT readers, lets go over Sunday’s Brett Favre cliche checklist. These are things that I’m sure announcers will inform us about during the NFC championship game, although I will have the volume turned down for obvious reasons:
    1. Did you realize that Brett Favre is 40 years old now? I sure wish they would mention that more often.
    2. Did you know that he played a Monday night game right after his father died?? They never mention this when he plays. Gosh, I sure hope they mention it this time.
    3. They just might mention how much fun he’s having out there. I would be very disappointed if they neglected that.
    4. We can’t get through a telecast of NFL Favreball without mentioning how many consecutive games he has played.
    5. Oh yeah, and he’s not sure whether or not he will be playing next year. Lets be sure and mention that too.
    6. And remember, it’s not “Brett” and its not “Favre.” When you talk about him, its always “Brettfavre.”
    7. And you know, sometimes, you just have to live with the “occasional bad throws….” and gunslinger mentality when you have “Brettfavre” on your team.
    Let me know if I’ve missed any Favre cliches.
    The only reason Favre gets so much hype is because he always is easy to access when the reporters want to talk to him. He kisses their butt. He is not the greatest quarterback of all time. He has not played in a Super Bowl since the 1997 season, and has had many playoff choke jobs since then. And this Sunday, on the road against a quality opponent, he will choke again, mark my words. History will repeat itself.

    Occam is making fun of the media and all of YOU who not only twist Favre’s words around but say he is a prima donna, it’s sarcasm.

  33. Little Tommy says: Jan 23, 2010 11:08 AM

    I’m totally FAVREd out and I’m sick of hearing about him. Yea, he’s great, yea he’s a Hall Of Famer but enough already.
    Let’s have one more round of tears and then get the F out of the game (before you get killed).
    I hope MO kicks his ass…

  34. shadowman1433 says: Jan 23, 2010 12:13 PM

    Does farve ever plan on shutting up?

  35. xMGMx says: Jan 23, 2010 12:40 PM

    I always love to see these idiots bash Brett Favre. Can’t help but laugh at them.
    I’ve been a Viking fan longer than most of you have been living, and I watched Brett beat the Vikes many times over, but I never hated the guy. After he ‘got it’ and lost his cockiness (which most never do), the guy was fun to watch, you have to admit. He knows the game, studies the game, and plays like it’s a sandlot game.
    NOOOO, he wasn’t perfect, but he makes things happen! He plays the game because he ENJOYS it. If every professional athlete had the heart of Brett Favre, pro sports would be A LOT different.
    Please keep in mind, I’m quite sure 99% of the people who bash a man for doing something he loves, and arguably brings more to a sport than anyone ever has, has NEVER played a minute of organized sports.
    Now, I’m sure to see good, thought out comments here, and obviously some smart ass comments as well, about three things which I won’t mention……. from the other 99%. I’ll just wait to see them, and laugh.

    @joe_mama; good post. I was going to follow up with a bit about all the negative stuff the talking heads never mention about brettfarve but it’s not worth it. I’m just sick of the guy. Geaux Saints!

  37. pkrlvr says: Jan 23, 2010 1:15 PM

    Hope Favre wins it this year and comes back next year to do it again. Forget what you think of the guy personally, if you don’t enjoy watching him play, and you’d prefer him gone from the league, then you’re a fool.

    Just keep on guaranteeing the behavior of others. The best you’ve got is 50-50, you dolts.
    I’ll bet (pardon the pun) you always call heads on a coin toss.
    Minnesota has wrecked so many prediction curves this season, even Favre is shocked. But this isn’t all about Favre, it’s about the Vikings.
    Hey, the haters are guaranteeing a Favre meltdown. They started on week one. Then Favre didn’t. Whoops. Mid-season, the haters were guaranteeing Peterson fumbles that would get him benched, cause Minny losses and therefore a total team collapse. AD fumbles a few times, no collapse. Other than the Chicago game, no big deal.
    AD will be the focus of at least the first quarter vs. the Saints, and the whole world knows it. I think he’s got a 300 yard game in him. Will it be now? Don’t know. I’m not stupid enough to guarantee anything. I predict he runs more than he has in months, without fumbles.
    Haters guarantee that Minny will fold, and, they shout, bitch about it. Hello? Minnesota Vikings fans have been through much more heartbreak than jubilation. And here we all are. This will be the longest 24 hours of the year for us.
    I hear Harvin seems to be OK now, too. The haters were guaranteeing that Harvin would fail miserably, inserting lame, repetitive slams about his youth and his public mistakes. Percy Harvin is the offensive Rookie of the Year, 2009. He has a shot at overall ROY, too. Hardly as ‘guaranteed’.
    Can’t wait for Sunday. Exciting as hell, very entertaining football. Nothing more. My Minnesota Fanhood is far, far too experienced to get more worked up than that.
