Favre hints he knows his plan for 2010

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.

    And this is why I can’t stomach Favre. Whatever you’re going to do, shut the F up about it, because no one with half a brain is buying anything you’re selling.

  2. BigSkyVike1 says: Jan 24, 2010 11:21 AM

    oh great, he’s gonna pull a Jr Seau and retire,unretire, retire, unretire.
    Get sick of Jr skipping mini camps and then coming in. What last year he was surfing while his teammates were busting their butts in two a days.

    Can you at least wait until after his season is over before you start the drama? Slow news morning eh?

  4. CaptainMarvel says: Jan 24, 2010 11:23 AM

    Hopefully he can play 4 or 5 more years and win a couple Super Bowls.

  5. Asswipe Johnson (Pronounced Az-Wee-Pay) says: Jan 24, 2010 11:23 AM

    Instead of cranking up the Favre retirement festivities three weeks early…wouldn’t it behoove you media types to instead ask the question of where Brett Favre would rank amongst the all time great quarterbacks if he leads the Vikings to a Super Bowl win along with the game MVP.
    Does Favre move above Peyton Manning with a Super Bowl win here? Elway? Montana?

  6. CaptainMarvel says: Jan 24, 2010 11:23 AM

    Hopefully he can play 4 or 5 more years and win a couple Super Bowls.

  7. superbowl3 says: Jan 24, 2010 11:27 AM

    I heard he has early stage Alzheimers. What else would explain his inability to remember how many times he has retired or that he needs to do it again?

  8. The Hurricane says: Jan 24, 2010 11:31 AM

    Just cause a player unretires doesn’t force a team to sign him. So as long as a team is willing to play him and use him who cares.

  9. pkrlvr says: Jan 24, 2010 11:32 AM

    If the fricken reporters would quit asking then you idiots wouldn’t have anything to talk about. It’s not his fault that every dbag with a press pass asks him the same question.

  10. leatherneck says: Jan 24, 2010 11:35 AM

    What will Favre say after a Vikings win today?

  11. jpirish says: Jan 24, 2010 11:35 AM

    I agree w/ jaydub; the mercenary man is playing the media again. This guy is sickening.
    Wonder what happens if he loses the game today with a pick; like he did against the Giants? The media will use their Chap Stick
    and be waiting outside his house in Miss.
    Just go the F away!!!

  13. madmike says: Jan 24, 2010 11:38 AM

    Florio and all the other hacks are such hypocrites. If you wanted to Favre to keep his mouth shut, stop printing stories like this non-story. He didn’t run up to a reporter, tug her arm and say c’mere, I think I know what I’m gonna do next year. He got asked about it, he gave a soft non-answer, and you toolboxes paint him as waffling again. If you didn’t gkeep asking him and then running off to the presses everytime, Favre-waffling would not be a story. Talk about the damn game today instead of constantly going for the easy article..

  14. PolegoJim says: Jan 24, 2010 11:40 AM

    Brett -Just man up and mean what you say. They say testosterone supplimentation helps.
    Think about it.

  15. Carl Gerbschmidt says: Jan 24, 2010 11:45 AM

    Actually Brett is an MVP behind Payton, Bretts records are being broken even as he still plays. Brett will be known for coming up just short in big games.

  16. Jack Factor says: Jan 24, 2010 11:51 AM

    The only problem with the double hearsay of reading this and the article it was culled from is that Brett Favre does not know what he is going to do even when he says he does.
    With the statistics and great feeling he has right now, why not come back again next year – you can make your family happy, your teammates happy, beat the Packers twice again and keep Payton Manning on a treadmill instead of chasing your records.
    But, if they lose this weekend or in the Super Bowl and the negativity begins, so will the waffling.
    Favre had his best year so far this year with the least amount of effort. With off season moves the Vikings can make a great team even better and he will have a year under his belt with his receiving corps. It has to be very attractive to go one more year on auto pilot playing inside a dome.
    It would make perfect sense for him to come back and perfect sense for Childress and Bevell to grovel to him to do so while Ziggy counts on him to continue the momentum for a new stadium. Favre will be able to write his ticket and sit out until camp starts again if he chooses since that regimen or lack there of seemed to pay off in his full season performance.
    OR NOT!

    “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.”
    Exactly, he is wishy washy, not a liar as many of the Favre haters like to paint him.

    I swear there is simply nothing funnier than idiots who say they are sick of Favre, but are still reading every article about him and then posting their thoughts. There may not be a surer sign of absolute stupidity on the planet.
    At least it’s funny.

    Too bad Favre’s digestive tract doesn’t work like his mind does on retirement.Hope you have a game just like your last NFC championship game you lying cheating piece o crap

  22. blitzburgh1 says: Jan 24, 2010 11:56 AM

    Brett Favre has made up his mind. Or maybe not.

  23. JaggedMark says: Jan 24, 2010 11:56 AM

    Who cares if his mind is made up?
    He changes it every 5 minutes anyway.

  24. last starfighter says: Jan 24, 2010 11:57 AM

    “Brett will be known for coming up just short in big games.”
    He already is known for that.
    And as far as those who want to defend Favre and blame the media for this, SYFPH. It is favre that requests press conferences to say nothing and he can always say no-comment. He is the biggest diva ego maniac in the game today. If we are going to blame the media for something, lets blame it for enabling him.

  25. CaptainFantastik says: Jan 24, 2010 11:57 AM

    He’s known what he was doing the last 2 years, he just uses his “retirements” as a charade to avoid off-season work. This guy is a world class douche. His family made reservations at the Motor Lodge the first week of April, about 3 weeks before he was even released from the Jets. And what did he tell Peter King when he got his release? “I’m not coming back. As good as Mike Tannenbaum has been to me I just couldn’t bring myself to do it”. He already had his reservations at the Motor Lodge when he said that. Scumbag.

  26. tradebait9 says: Jan 24, 2010 11:58 AM

    Admit it Carl Gerbschmidt…….your still in love with your XBFFBF!!!!

  27. Richm2256 says: Jan 24, 2010 12:04 PM

    Favre, please, SHUT THE HELL UP!!!!
    At least finish this season before cranking up the “Will he or won’t he, whining and sniffling, hurt my arm and still have something to prove, traveling side show and annual retirement AngstFest”.
    Seriously, has it ever occured to this self-absorbed jackass that none of us are interested in this annual display of self agrandizing anymore?
    Go the f— away, Brett, while there are still three people in the country who still have any any respect for your character.

  28. gopher says: Jan 24, 2010 12:10 PM

    As many of the posters have said before this post is that if the press would quit asking he would not have to talk about it and would not talk about it. The insiders have to post something since they were right on the money all month with the Cable story. Here is a tip for the INSIDERS , be the first to post that the Colts/Jets and Vikings/Saints are playing today, be the first to post.

  29. Carl Gerbschmidt says: Jan 24, 2010 12:11 PM

    I knew what Brett was all about when his team mates were not excited by his potential return. His pants on the ground is all an act, Brett is just all an act. What made me laugh was a poster that said stadium momentum in MN, that is funny.

  30. LoganSF2 says: Jan 24, 2010 12:20 PM

    This great. We love Brett Farve! Keep pissing off the puker trolls!!! Hahahahahahahha!
    Yeah!!!! Farve for another year and the puker heads will exploded when he beats them again, twice… Hahahahahaahahah!!!!

  31. BasicInstinct says: Jan 24, 2010 12:27 PM

    I love Bret Favre and so do a lot of old douchebags that wish they still had the legs to do anything like him at that level anymore!

  32. Pervy-Harvin says: Jan 24, 2010 12:28 PM

    Favres plan for 2010 is to get Ziggy to pick him up wearing a dress.

    Maybe Farve will be able to make up his mind once he goes through menopause.

    Yeah. You were disinterested enough to see the headline, click on the article, read the article, and then take the time to comment on the article.
    Sheesh.

  37. Fan_Of_ Four says: Jan 24, 2010 12:38 PM

    I honestly get great joy out of it when Brett Favre says sh!t like this and drives all the haters to loose their myopic minds. Just for that alone I hope he comes back just to torture these dolts for another year.
    He wouldn’t have to comment on it if the pinheads in the media wouldn’t ask him every ten minutes.
    I Love it !

  38. polishkingski says: Jan 24, 2010 12:38 PM

    why does every body hate brett farve so much? i find his durability fascinating….

  39. Peoples Champ says: Jan 24, 2010 12:41 PM

    After your knocked out today you can tell us in the morning
    You are a bum should have ended it after that great pass in the last NFC Championship game
    Farve is another word for assclown

  41. JJCheesehead says: Jan 24, 2010 12:47 PM

    cant wait to hear what everyone has to say on this subject. should be pretty comical. people fail to realize that the media makes half of the things up that are said about Favre.
    here is a perfect example:
    remember how it was reported multiple times that Favre put a down-payment on a house/bought a house in the Minneapolis area?
    He never did that in any way, shape, or form; but do any of you remember how many times the media reported that Favre had in fact done so? He is currently renting Tony Richardson’s former estate in Minneapolis. Just goes to show how dumb most of you are.

    For every hater, there’s at least 10 fans. The haters are the ones that continue to cry though.

    It’s just as fascinating the way some people (Viking fans…..or more appropriately, followers) continue to kiss his ass after his epic failures in the post season. He is making a great run right now, yes, but look at what he has not accomplished in the playoffs in the past decade and tell me why people (non-Viking followers) continue to think the way they do.

  50. Little Tommy says: Jan 24, 2010 1:21 PM

    Who cares what the F Favre says. If there’s a team that will pay him, let him play until they cart him off the field.
    What he says, anytime he says it, is inconsequential because it’s all subject to change anyway.
    I’m not sure he ever knows what the hell he wants to do!

  51. nrh_123 says: Jan 24, 2010 1:30 PM

    Sly ol’ Brett. The only thing reasonable i’ve ever heard him say is that he didn’t want to be known as a QB, rather as a “football player”. I hate to say it, but you’ve got to admire something about the man.

  52. downsouth49er says: Jan 24, 2010 1:31 PM

    Be vewy vewy quiet, I’m hunting wabbits.
    Oh yeah, screw favre and his plans for 2010, the guy is a liar who says one thing when he really means the other but says the opposite just to keep the attention on him. That is lying for all you Favre lovers who says he doesn’t lie. Anytime you know the truth but tell anything other than it, you are LYING.

  53. Occam says: Jan 24, 2010 1:35 PM

    “i’m back,” I can’t speak for Vikings fans, but I didn’t know that a QB had to have a .800% winning record in the playoffs to be considered a great QB. The Montanas, Marinos and Mannings of the world will be saddened to learn their fate.
    Like it or not, Favre has been absolutely great this year, while doing something unprecedented for someone his age and making the NFL as a whole more entertaining. The people who bitched that he should retire have been firmly and completely proven wrong.

  54. Sparrowhawk says: Jan 24, 2010 1:42 PM

    Playing for revenge has worked for Brett since he’s probably had his best season of his career. Favre fans (evidently far more loyal than Viking fans) are just hoping that the real Brett (the one who has choked away every major game since 1996) doesn’t show up today. So far this season Brett has shown greatness at football, but he still fails miserably as a person. T.O. multiplied by 10.

  55. Bwa Ha Ha says: Jan 24, 2010 1:44 PM

    I think he wants to break the record for retirement parties

  56. SteveInThe716 says: Jan 24, 2010 1:49 PM

    The man’s mind can still play the game….If his body will let him than I say keep playing….the reason he tosses and turns more than Obama is his 40 year old body! If he is not beat up that bad than he’ll be back…..The majority of us would not get out of bed for a week if we took just one hit this man takes on a weekly bases!!! So let him do what he does and at the end of the day if he plays next year at the level he did this year than anyone who calls them self a football fan is watching a legend!!!! Trust meI know…we have to even sniffed a real qb’s jockstrap up here in Buffalo since Kelly called it a day!

    Lord Favre constanty gets pestered by the media with questions about his status, he says he doesn’t know and is focusing onthe NFC title game, the 24/7 ESPN-generated media speculation kicks in, and he’s the loud mouth, media-loving prima donna? Not this time.

    Which means that anyone can make up his mind any friking time he wants!!! Anytime. It also means that anyone can change his mind any friking time he wants. Anytime!!! Who the f—- are all of you to criticize Brett. What do all of you do for a living. 8 to 5ers. Go figure dipshits. Brett has accomplished more at 40 that all of you put together will in a life time. Got to love the guy. He has done more for football than most. Draws a larger viewing audience than anyone else. Look at the numbers when the Viks played the Pack. Unreal!!! Just one more thought. Hate destroys the hater! Got to love Brett!!!

    Here we go again. He will wait until he is not the center of attention when the season is over to have an interview with ESPN where he will say he is undecided about his future again. I can’t wait til this attention whore retires and disappears.

  65. dannylaruso says: Jan 24, 2010 2:33 PM

    Of love these idiots who still believe these rumurs, and untruths that have already been discredited.
    Idtio #1 CaptainFantastik: “His family made reservations at the Motor Lodge the first week of April, about 3 weeks before he was even released from the Jets.”
    That is flat out false and a lie (probably coming from TT and his cronies). As a matter of fact, not only did nobody reserve hotel rooms but nobody from his family attended the Minn/Green Bay game in GB other than his wife.
    Idiot #2 last starfighter: “It is favre that requests press conferences to say nothing and he can always say no-comment. He is the biggest diva ego maniac in the game today.”
    Actually, the press conference you are talking about was for a celebrity gold tournament and the press conference was scheduled months in advance. Brett just wanted to talk about golf.
    If you want to hate on Favre, that’s fine. But at least do it on some fact and not pure ignorance.

    Maybe it’s due to the fact that he is playing for an owner who is not afraid to put players around him and a GREAT team throughout. Not a team that is only good in a few positions, and has defenses that give up 4th and 26th plays or 400 yards, 26 first downs, and 40 minutes time of position to the other team at hom in -10 degree weather.
    btw, speaking of epic failures in the post season, how is Erin Rodgers working out?
