If the Minnesota Vikings lose today, Brett Favre will be inundated with questions about whether he has played his last game. And if they win today, we’ll be treated to two weeks of stories about whether the Super Bowl will be Favre’s final game.
For his part, Favre is hinting that his mind is made up.
John Czarnecki of Fox Sports is reporting that in an interview with Fox’s Pam Oliver, Favre intimated that he knows what he’s doing next year. However, Favre didn’t tell Oliver whether he’s retiring or coming back.
And, of course, it wouldn’t really matter if he did say whether he was retiring or coming back. Everyone who follows football realizes by now that even if Favre thinks he knows what he’s doing now, that doesn’t mean he’s going to feel the same way six months from now.
So Favre might as well stop hinting that he knows his plan for 2010. He’s sure to change his mind a few times between now and next season.
