Report: Favre tells Vikings he's not returning

Many of you scoffed at our report of uneasiness in Mankato regarding the Brett Favre situation.

Scoff no more.

Judd Zulgad of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune reports that Favre began telling team officials on Monday night that he will not return for another season.  The disclosure comes on the heels of an observation from Zulgad that team “ownership and power brokers” held a meeting at practice that “looked very intense.”

Zulgad also reports that Favre plans to issue a press release later today.  Apparently, Favre’s injured ankle “has not responded” after surgery and rehab.

Jay Glazer of FOX also reports that Favre has begun communicating the message to teammates.  Per Glazer, he has cited wear and tear on his body as the reason for calling it quits.

We’ve been insisting that, before Favre returns, he needs to persuade everyone that he won’t return.  Just like he did last year.

  1. I told you so. Why should he?
    2008, with the Jets, people mocked at him after the season was over. He was hurt, he needed to set things straight. Not this year, everybody loves him.
    Maybe Jared Allen will try his “wine ’em, dine ’em, XLV ’em” on him?
    (All in all, right now I am thinking this is a joke.)

  2. I am throwing the BS flag- since everyone assumed he was, they now have to build the drama…classic WWE script. He is selling the ankle then he will Hulk up and be the hero

  3. oh viking fans, what do you do now?? Bawh!!!! have fun with tavaris this year losers!!
    live by the favre/die by the favre- this is too funny if it holds up

  4. Next weeks headline: ” Favre decides to play after Vikings sign a quarterback and change the offense to suit him.”

  5. OK, now that I’ve stopped laughing again, let me end this by saying I’ll believe it when I see it. When he signs those retirement papers and and fails to suit up for game one of the regular season, then I’ll believe it.

  6. I’ll believe it when they open up their regular season without him and even then I’d be willing to bet that one injury or bad performance will cause them to go down and beg him to come back.

  7. What a shame. It really sucks when you will no longer be able to watch one of the all time greats play any longer. It also a shame for the vikings. They go from superbowl contender to playoff longshot.

  8. wow. kind of shocking. will be even MORE shocked if he’s singing the same tune come late September.

  9. Either Brett had heard that people had stopped talking about him or he’s really gonna show Leroy Butler what for!

  10. Please, please, please be true!
    Sorry, just ready for the primadonna to finally retire…
    ..of course, he could just be angling for another trade LOL

  11. this is a perfect setup for him to comeback around week 8 or 9 to make a playoff push with a healthy body.

  12. QUICK!! SOMEONE REMOVE ALL SHARP OBJECTS FROM PERVY HARVIN’S POSSESSION. WE HAVE A TRUE SUICIDE WATCH HERE PEOPLE!!!
    REMEMBER WHAT WE PRACTICED.

  13. This will seal Farve’s fate and legacy as a prima donna. It’s just shameful to lead the team on this long. He at least had to try before quitting at this late stage. He is under contract. He had not retired.

  14. Florio nailed it in the last sentence. Favre is coming back, but he won’t say so until he has convinced most people otherwise.

  15. Hey Queens fans–that sinking feeling in your gut? It’s not just the DNA you had for breakfast, it’s the state of stunning despair and futility you are naturally inclined to exist in, as perennial failure Hypequeen fanboys.
    Hope selling out whatever bit of dignity you may have had as a fanbase to embrace your mortal enemy was worth it, for the one season and the stunning, dramatic collapse.
    Hey, at least you still have THAT, right?
    Now what? Tav Jax to the “rescue”?
    Hey, maybe you can go after Rodgers now!

  16. suckers. this is only designed to raise packer fans hopes again and then cruelly shatter them again just like last year.

  17. I’m thinking people don’t care enough about the Favre drama this year, so he is stoking it up a bit. Don’t fall for this people!!

  18. Freaking sweet! Let’s watch the vikes slide down the power rankings! Peterson is now a much more attactive fantasy RB!

  19. Could it be? Say it’s not so. Brett! Brett! Don’t quit!
    No drama? No more will he/won’t he? No more crushing, late season or playoff implosions?
    January just got a little less exciting. So did September 9th for that matter.

  20. And people wonder why the Green Bay front office had enough of his crap several years ago when they were at a crossroads between keeping Favre and seeing what they had in Aaron Rodgers.
    Someone needs to put a stake through his heart to permanently stop this “Will I or won’t I?” crap from happening each year.

  21. I thought he really loved me. My friends kept telling me he was just using me and would break my heart. I didn’t listen. I thought this time it would be different. And even as my heart lays on the floor, still beating, I still think, still hope that he will come back and say he loves me…..

  22. the twin cities better order some more kleenex. this could be more heartbreaking than his final interception.

  23. “soot87 says:
    August 3, 2010 10:48 AM
    I’ll believe it in week 6”
    When the division is already lost?

  24. Don’t believe it for a second.
    All he’s doing is (trying to) make his absence from camp look legitimate, and of course set up another triumphant return to the suddenly lowly and desperate Vikings.

  25. Man, this guy is a stone-cold narcisist. Never in the history of celebrity, has the world known a bigger drama queen.

  26. hahahaha…..
    nice…..
    The Viking bandwagon just got roomier.
    I’ll believe it when I see it though.

  27. I thought he was for sure coming back. His wife renewed her gym membership in Minnesota, as reported by Florio…

  28. Wow! That sound you just heard was the Vikings crashing back down to earth…Oh well, you had your shot and fumbled it away.

  29. There’s no salary cap this year – he’s trying to get them to bump his salary in this… his final season.

  30. Begun communicating the message to teammates?? Sounds like code for making a some calls to get teammates to get them to beg for him to play one more season. Eat a Snickers and STFU you dumb a$$ Diva.

  31. ah ha ha ha ha ha ha ha
    Either he retires and takes a huge chunk of Vikings ass with him or he comes back again and cements himself as the biggest has-been drama diva attention whore interception king in sports history and STILL won’t win another Super Bowl.
    win/win.

  32. FAVRE!
    Okay the over/under here on comments for the Favre is not returning is now set at 366…

  33. Brett says he is calling it quits but he is sure that he does not know for certain or for sure if he will be changing his mind and will always reserve the right to do so.

  34. Wait, I thought Florio said that Farve’s wife had renewed her fitness club membership in Minny…I mean, surely THAT can’t be wrong? Oh please this is just another Drama Queen Farve move…..see ya in September Farve

  35. I don’t believe this for a second the prima donna loves this stuff.
    I also be Contra bit mom’s nipple when he heard this

  36. Favre is the new Runway Bride. In a few years you’ll see a new word in the dictionary. You’ve just been Farved…

  37. Those receivers aren’t going to complete passes to themselves, so with T-Jackoff at qb minny is no better than 3rd in the division.

  38. Pervy,
    I thought you claimed that when you spoke to Brett, he told you he was coming back? Were you lying to us, sir? Because we all believed you that you hang out with him on the weekends. I guess you were misled. Enjoy 3rd place this year with t-jak

  39. Guess his wife just wasted that money to renew her gym membership up there. Can she get a refund on the fee?

  40. Nice of Favre to wait until August to tell the team that their #1 Franchise QB is not coming back.
    BTW – Sage Rosenfels has thrown 7 INTS in 2 days of camp practice…
    Have fun Viking Fans!

  41. Thats it then. Favre doesn’t say very much, but when he says something he means it!
    I like the way he is going about anouncing it to the team first. He never was one to attract attention to himself. From now on I doubt we will hear very much about him.

  42. In other breaking news, water is wet.
    Favre isn’t retiring. He’s not retiring this season, just getting a late start on the Favre watch. Lebron pre-empted him most of the summer.
    If, by any chance, he did retire. When will Joe Webb play?

  43. In other news, the Eagles are in contact with Mike Vick’s probation officer to see if Vick could be cleared to leave PA and go to Minnesota.

  44. Awww, looks like the music stopped and the Vikes have no where to sit.
    (In the end he will be back, but squirm you bidgess)

  45. I just hate this guy, I really do.
    For once Florio is bang on. First favre has to convince everyone he isn’t coming back. Only then can he make his truimphant return.
    Goodell should just retire this pain in the ass!

  46. Yeah Minny “will convince him to return.” Then if things dont work out its not his fault, he came back to help the team and when he knew he should not have. But didn’t want to leave them hanging (when in reality that is all his does is leave the teams hanging)
    Its sad that every reporter knows the game, knows its all a show, but keeps begging to be next up to report the next lie in Farve’s annual ego inflating game.

  47. HAHAHAHAAHAHA Vikings are screwed.
    Sage Rosenfels and Tavaris Jackson won’t get em to the promise land!

  48. My heart is broken but it had to come some day. I really hope that Webb can step up fast for the Vikings.

  49. I wish he would just go away. Quit holding teams hostage you prima donna. Your drama is played out. I’m not a Packer fan but that was the best move they made since they traded for his dumb A**. I hope its true….

    Win.

  51. Well, they may never win anything, but at least Vikings fans can get all nostalgic about, “That one season Brett Favre played for us!!”
    ROFLMAO!

  52. shit be bringin’ it Hoss…
    so we go from “I don’t need ankle surgery to play in the NFL this year” to “I had ankle surgery, it’s not responding, I quit”.
    BF is re-writing the description of what it means to be a drama-queen.

  53. PLEASE GOD LET THIS BE TRUE!!!!!!!
    sincerely, all Packers fans.
    This is the best way he could get Packers fans to love him again

  54. I really liked Brett Favre until about 3 years ago. This is just so redundant and overworked. This is my first Favre comment and hopefully my last. He had a lot of respect, and the sad part is he probably thinks he has to play to keep his fans. Reality is, if he would have shut up and not let his pride get in the way after GB then he would still be as loved and admired as he was then. I doubt this will hurt his chances at getting in the HOF but it certainly kills his public image.

  55. I hate this guy, I really do.
    Tragically, Brett will be back. But like Florio said, first he has to convince everyone that he won’t.
    What a drama queen.

  56. It’ll be nice to not be surrounded by bandwagon Viking fans this year at the bar. Retreat back into the woodwork F@GS!

  57. And be sure to ask yourselves Vikings/Favre fans, why wouldn’t he just go on the PUP, and come in mid-season and help his team?
    Because folks, that would involve putting his consecutive start streak to and end, a personal record much more improtant to Brett than anyone fan, player, coach, or stadium seat of the Minnesota Vikings.
    How’s it gonna feel next year when he’s a Bear, lol.

  58. PLEASE GOD LET THIS BE TRUE!!!!!!!
    sincerely, all Packers fans.
    This is the best way he could get Packers fans to love him again

  59. He decided to take a year off. He’ll be back in time for the 3rd exhibition game next season.

    win/win.
    *********************************
    except the packers haven’t won a thing with rodgers as starter and the vikes have won the division with tj and with favre. so it’s probably still lose/lose for the packers.

  61. Somwhere Albert Haynesworth is breathing a deep sigh of relief and hoping that Favre-watch keeps him out of the limelight.

  62. Seriously… the ONLY way this guy is not in uniform is if he literally can’t walk. Brett’s just feeling a little unappreciated, and probably doesn’t like the fact everyone is just assuming he’ll be back. So he’ll wait until the consensus is that he won’t be back and is “done”, and then come back like 10 days before the opener and claim the ankle is miraculously healed. Worst case scenario, he comes back after their week 3 game to the Lions (entering their bye week) where they’ll likely be 1-2 (sans Favre). As an added benefit, he gets to start the comeback against the Jets in NY. And then everyone can say what an amazing legendary athlete he is.

  63. Favre just needs more people to beg him to play…that’s what little babies do. He’ll play…

  64. PLEASE GOD LET THIS BE TRUE!!!!!!!
    sincerely, all Packers fans.
    This is the best way he could get Packers fans to love him again

  65. As much as I’d like to tease the vikes fans, it’s too early to jump on this bandwagon.
    faver and bus cook are masters of deception.

  66. All the Viking fans that were absolutely sure BrInt would be back just $hit their pants. I love it!!

  67. HMMMMMMMM . sounds fishy , HE looks for land to bow hunt on this fall , his wife reinstates her gym membership in an Egan gym??? nope i’ll believe it when i see it.

    Yeah, because Packer fans hopes rest on Favre retiring, not on the team actually doing well this year. You need to go away. Seriously. Go be a moron somewhere else.

  70. Hahahahah…..not enough begging from the ViQueens thats what it is. Keep it coming guys, he might change his mind later.

  71. A real man would never lie or say things to receive other people. If Favre says he’s done then he is done.
    Signed Barrack Obama

  72. Every time I come in to this group dedicated to the Vikings, it is filled with Packer fans. I guess they need to seek out a quality team to follow, because they sure don’t have one of their own.

    We all thought he was gonna go out with his last pass the horrible pick in the Giants game!
    OR
    We all thought he was gonna go out with his last pass the horrible pick in the Eagles game!
    I will remember Brett Favre for the stoopid Int’s in important games, more then his Super Bowl’s

    Peterson is gonna get 500 carries this season

    How many fumblesout of that 500???

  75. He probably will come back, but it WOULD be just be too funny, if he didn’t. Have some chances at drafting a QB this off season, because its completely obvious that the QBs that they do have on thier roster aren’t ones they want. Favre is just emphasising this so he can’t get fined.

  76. Hahahaha….. Remember when people second guessed the packers for picking Aaron over Brett and now we have an amazing team with one of the best qb’s in the NFL. I love being a packers fan

  77. He will be back just after the Saints game. Why would he want to come back for one game. We all know the Saints D would knock him out for the year.

  78. Ah man! Now I can’t boo him at the game at Lambeau!!!
    Still love him Queens fans??? Jimmy Clausen might have been a nice pick.

    Doubtfull!!!

  80. Viking management…HOW STUPID can you be!!!! That is redundant, apparently, very!!! You had a perfect opportunity during the draft to pick up a franchise quaterback…oh no you had to wait for Favre and then you had the arrogance to say that the other two idiots you have would be just fine if Favre didn’t come back…WRONG You will get you asses handed to you!!!

  81. Rumor has it that Chilly asked Favre to go easy and possibly consider the KY Jelly that he brought along. Favre got mad at that, insisted that Chilly take it like a……..crossdresser that he is.
    It goes without saying that QB is the important position on a team. Playing the position well breeds confidence throughout the organization so I can only wonder how T Jack Off and Rosencoptor feel after being thrown under the bus last season. Each was promised that they could compete for the starting position only to watch their head coach transform into a second rate chauffer that threw all his dignity (if he ever had any in the first place) down the drain in the mad dash to the airport. Both those QB’s weren’t worth a damn before last season and now they are completely lost causes.
    If Favre does retire, and like many posters, I will believe it around Week 6 of the season, the chickens will come home to roost for the Vikings. They made a deal with the devil and the devil has decided that Chilly’s sphincter was just getting too loose for his tastes.
    As they say in gerbil-hiding land, Skoal Vikings!

  82. Yes, but on another note, Beer Farts has changed his mind and decided to return. More to follow later.

    ***********************************
    that’s exactly the way you feel isn’t, what a pathetic “fan”. you don’t care that your team isn’t winning, all you care about is hating favre. euthanasia was invented for people like you, do the world a favor and call dr. kevorkian.

  84. This can’t be true. The F@gchise insisted he had contacts inside the organization that knew he is coming back.
    For those holding out hope that he’ll come back mid-season get a grip. The consecutive games streak is the only stat he cares about so if he’s not out there for the first snap against New Orleans it is definitely over.

  85. First of all I do not believe this.
    But if in fact this is what it is, what do you queen fans think now?
    I won’t say I told you so, but he took a crap on your head.
    Is he still a great guy? Nope probably not.

  86. Most likely; Florio called it, Favre is just setting this up so he can ride in on his white horse after Viking fans lose all hope, perhaps with a little “thank you” bump from Zylgi.
    Second most likely; Favre tells the Vikings he will not play and asks for his release, then when Delhomme struggles he reunites with Holmgren and Mangini (don’t forget he named a kid after Brett) in Cleveland, to lead another supposed run based offense, another storybook scenario that will allow Favre to extend his records, without the pressure of leading a team with Super Bowl expectations.
    Least likely by far; Favre retires.

  87. you retire you come back you retire you come back, some call you a drama queen some say otherwise, when it comes down to it, i know all that was happening was you were being torn from the passion of your life, you tried to tell yourself it was over, but your life wasnt the same, so you had no choice but to come back, your life is football, and i can understand that, like many should, you are the best at your position, you have nothing left to prove, every qb record possible, three mvp’s in a row, miss watching the excitement you brang to the field every time you stepped on it. i seriously doubt he’ll be back, but i he were, it doesnt ruin this statement one bit, hes an all time great, non-arguably the best of all time.

  88. **********BREAKING NEWS***********
    He’ll be opening up a bakery in Mississippi. It will specialize in turnovers…

  89. I am still hoping that he will reconsider. For the odious Pack fans, don’t celebrate too much. Don’t forget that an injury to Rodgers will cause you to sink. The Vikings are still stacked and Webb will be their QB of the future.
    This is such a sad day. I am in mourning.

  90. Karma
    1. Running up the score on the Cowboys demostrating a pure lack of sportsmanship
    2. Throwing a game losing INT in the NFC Championship
    3. Snapping his ankle in the same game thus ending his career.
    That would be great if it worked out that way but all of us fans know, he will be back and lead to a number 4: Throwing INT against the Cowboys in the NFC Championship to Keith Brooking which is returned for a TD sealing a 40 point victory by the Boys. A guy can dream can’t he?

  91. Most of you forgot that we won the division with T-Jack at QB 2 years ago and now hes only improved since then. So I’m not that worried at all. And I also doubt that it’s true. If it is true for some reason, I wish he would of told us earlier so we could of got the chance to grab McNabb.

  92. Why Grandpa………………………………………………………………………………………………………..Whyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy?

  93. Packers looking pretty smart now- not being held hostage by favre. They are now the team to beat (for years) while the vikes have no plan to speak of and have two career backups- how’s that working for you vikes fans?? HA! HA!

  94. Let’s say his ankle really isn’t ready. They likely have an agreement: “We’ll start the season with TJack. If he’s playing well, we’ll stick with him. If he’s struggling once you’re feeling better, you can slide right back in.”

  95. Imagine how badly the saints will beat the vikings now…holy viqueen whine man. Gonna be murderous down in da big easy come September!

  96. This is why Thompson and the Packers had to move on. It was better for Brett, and the Packers. Not that I believe he is retired, until he retires, but I was looking forward to a rematch when the Packers had and healthy O-line. Now we have to watch Garcia play again.

  97. it’s august 2. deep down i think you packer fans know he’ll be back and your 2 year nightmare will continue.

  98. Where is the Viking fan who was in here a few days ago saying that there would be no drop off even if Jackson had to QB the team? Still feeling good about that statement?

    Perfect. A thousand internets to you, sir.

  100. This is an absolute mirror of last year. I’m not worried about it in the least.
    We’ll see him round about august 18th again.
    I just don’t see the guy pissing on the packers and thier fans for 1 year. It couldn’t have been worth it.
    If he doesn’t come back, they regroup and move forward. There is no other choice.
    TJax/ Sage are enough to win that division anyhow.

  101. HAHAHAHAHAHA, OH MAN, THIS IS GONNA LAST ME A GOOD WHILE.
    Yeah where are our good friends Pervy Harvin and Robert Ethan and Paulitik, y’know those vikers hangers ons.
    As a previous poster once said, we must find Pervy and get him to the proper authorities for help. This is a stage 5 emergency for him and all vikers.
    p.s. you still have that guy Tjack and he’s a beast right? RIIIIIGHT?
    lol

  102. Hint to T-Had hatred….
    Last time he started the season Vikings won division. Racer only improved team by ONE WIN. Had the Vikings beat the Eagles in 2998 they would have been playing the Cardinals AT HOME in the NFC CHAMPIONSHIP GAME.

  103. “Looky Looky!! Down here! In Mississippi! Hey NFL fans don’t make me type in GoOgLy letters!!!! I’m still around – I still exist. That’s right it’s been about 2 months since the last important bit of news came out about me and I just wanted you all to know i’m still around…still breathing….see you week 4 of the preseason!”
    – Brett Favre
    Do you really need attention that badly?

  104. There aren’t enough people talking about him! He’s bothered.
    Sorry people, Favre will play. It’s just that this is the only way he knows how to get attention during the offseason…

  105. Vikings fans: if this is true and Favre really doesn’t come back to play, don’t expect to see him on the sidelines as a coach. He’s not a coach. He’s made that very clear in the past.

    You are a fool.
    Now back to work the ladies room is filthy and someone just ordered 15 quarter pounders.
    We told you so.

  108. Next step in Brett Favre’s Screw You plan is to file retirement papers, then promptly ask for his release from the Vikings.

  109. The Vikings are done if he doesn’t return. They have absolutely NO decent QB. I am not a Vikings homer, but I was hoping he would return. The Vikings should have been in the SB and won it. There was some weird play calling in the last game for them.

  110. I hope he does come back. The vengeance adrenaline is no longer strong enough to carry him through, and I would like to see him struggle. And the prospects of having another hail-mary save (San Francisco game) that endears him to thousands of desperate and anxious fans, won’t happen twice.
    But if he truly decides to hang it up I guess the disappointed fans can take some solace in at least some of the magic he brought them. Imagine if you will…..the year…2018….and after suffering through their eighth season in a row of not making the playoffs, the Tribune headlines will read; “Remember 2010? Favre Beat the Packers Twice. At Least We Got That Going For Us.”

    1. You might want to check your calendar. 2998 hasn’t been played yet, but some would argue the Vikings will still be seeking their first trophy that season.
    2. Is it really a home game if the opposing team’s fans buy up the remaining tickets and prevent a blackout? That’s more like a neutral site game.

  115. Ha Ha! This wouldn’t surprise me. I had a feeling last year was just a fluke and maybe it’s looking like he knew it too. I was pretty sure if he came backk this year the other teams were gonna kick the schit outta him !! Playing this year would have exposed him for the fraud that he is !

  116. He played his best season as a Packer – way back in 1996.
    39 tds, 13 INTs, one Super Bowl ring.
    He just needed Reggie White and Desmond Howard to help him get to the promised land.
    2009 was great too, Vikes fans – only 7 picks. Except for that one at the end. Ouch. And Jared Allen is no Reggie White.
    Here’s a fun footnote. In 1996, the Packers split the series with the Vikings, but they won the Super Bowl so all was well. I guess it was a “good” year in Minnesota to be able to go .500 against the World Champs! (Judging by how often they crow about last year’s sweep.)

  117. Viking fans, all is not lost. Just remember that 20 years from now you can tell your grand kids about the glorious 2009 season when the Vikings led by Favre beat the Packers twice to win the division.

  118. Like I have been saying he is done, week 4 buy, tough schedule. A team that is not that good but has been lucky. Having to face Rodgers and the Packers again. He knows its tough to get back to a winning season. ITS OVER VIKIE FANS.

    He may have been referring to the Oak Grove High School team.

  120. RC IV,
    You’re an idiot.
    This ain’t rodgers first year starting anymore. He’s a pro bowl qb who is one of the elite players in the league. If you think its so easy to win everything with t jak, then what do you need favre for? Your super bowl chance is done.

  121. @ greenie
    yeah the weird play calling came from Greg Williams and the destruction of Favre. The Vikings don’t go to the playoffs with Favre, without him they have a shot.

  122. Again, because the haters are so short-sighted and clueless, is it not reasonable for a 41 year old to make sure he is suited for the rigors of the NFL before accepting the paycheck???
    I heard ya kids weren’t terribly bright, but this does not bode well for our future – the inability to reason and come to logical conclusions.

  123. This is why I sided with the Packers ownership. Either you are playing or you aren’t. Also, the media isn’t bringing us what we want, they are trying to tell us what we want. I don’t think 99% of people care about Favre and his antics.

  124. I cannot wait until he says he is coming back. Everyone on here is showing how desperate they are for him not to return and frankly is quite sad and pathetic. Just you wait…

  125. I love that the Packers were unable to ever beat Favre with Minnesota it was so much fun to watch him torch that secondary….Bravo Brett for making the Packers your bitch twice last season and taking the Vikings farther than the Packers

  126. My first conspiracy theory was that the Redskins are positioning themselves to collect insurance on Haynesworth’s bonus after they cut him for being out of shape.
    My second conspiracy theory is that Roger Goodell (is that how you spell it?) has arranged for Favre to sit out this year and then make a dramatic comeback next year to get everyone’s attention off of the players/owners clash and PR nightmare that billionaires fighting with millionaires will ultimately cause. The media will, once again, focus on Favre rather than the ugly stuff. LOL…

  127. Maybe Favre should move to Havre Montana and learn how to pronounce his name. They might give him a coaching job, too.

  128. RC IV
    You were laughing at me last time and you had a comeback then.
    No, you are not just a janitor at the McDonalds, you are probably like an assistant shift supervisor or something.
    I smell fear and denial you little girl.

  129. Best thing Green Bay did was get rid of Drama Boy!
    Rogers first two years 4000+ yards passing, drama boy um………. didn’t happen. I don’t believe he ever had back to back 4000+ yards, and Rogers was on his a** quite a bit and still made it happen.
    Favre should have bowed out graciously the first retirement announcement. He only tarnished his legacy by hanging on, wait some say now he beat all 32 NFL teams. whoopty due….
    He still finished the same way, an interception in the NFC championship game, history repeats itself.
    Maybe we can bring some class back to the game now.

  130. Meanwhile…in related news…Aaron Rodgers and Ted Thompson were seen entering the backdoor of a Green Bay bathhouse to celebrate…

    You must be thinking of another site.

  135. No one believes this until the Vikings season is over. Knowing Queen Brett, he’d roll in at the start of playoffs and shove the starting QB out of the way.

  136. He’s just afraid of Dem Saints after the way they abused him last year. Heck, I’d be afraid, too!
    Maybe he’ll come back after the openning game.

  137. Hey……..The Vikes OL let him down. The refs in the Saints game put on the blindfolds. THEY wanted Favre hurt and ouuta the game of football!!!!!!
    Show me another game, EVER, where the refs called a game like that???? You’ll search forever……….you won’t find one!!!!!
    Brett……dude……..a 40 yr. Vikes fan………I don’t blame ya!!! Take care, guy…..we’ll miss ya!!!

  138. Rumors have begun to circulate that he wants to take his talents to South Beach… he believes teaming up with Wade, Lebron and Bosh in Miami gives him the best chance to be the only athlete to win a Super Bowl and an NBA championship.

    So’s spelling.

  141. “The Vikings won the NFCN in 08 with Tjack”.
    Hmn, actually, they went 2-4 with TJack as a starter (W against Ari and NYG, L to GB, IND, ATL and PHI).
    They went 8-3 with Gus Frerotte.
    So… Yeah… But, hey, at least you have that developmental Wr, err, QB in Joe Webb! That’s got to account for something, right?
    OR, if that doesn’t work, I’ve heard Gus is very interested in joining the Vikings again.

  142. JimmySmith says:
    Rumor has it that Chilly asked Favre to go easy and possibly consider the KY Jelly that he brought along. Favre got mad at that, insisted that Chilly take it like a……..crossdresse r that he is.
    It goes without saying that QB is the important position on a team. Playing the position well breeds confidence throughout the organization so I can only wonder how T Jack Off and Rosencoptor feel after being thrown under the bus last season. Each was promised that they could compete for the starting position only to watch their head coach transform into a second rate chauffer that threw all his dignity (if he ever had any in the first place) down the drain in the mad dash to the airport. Both those QB’s weren’t worth a damn before last season and now they are completely lost causes.
    If Favre does retire, and like many posters, I will believe it around Week 6 of the season, the chickens will come home to roost for the Vikings. They made a deal with the devil and the devil has decided that Chilly’s sphincter was just getting too loose for his tastes.
    As they say in gerbil-hiding land, Skoal Vikings!

    So who are the suckers now Packer Trash!
    Your shrill rants and manic glimmer of hope for another Wild Card game can be postponed for another day. Time to curl up on the couch, sniff the glue can and contemplate two more beat-downs from the Minnesota Vikings.

Go ahead, light it up Moron! Now you and your friends are really feeling the Favre factor. I love this shit! Even if Favre comes back he’s put the few Queen fans there are and the organization through the wringer. I hope he waffles a little more, it’s sure to start pissing his team mates off, this is too good to be true! Today your transvestite Zombie (how’s that sound Gravy?) coach showed little knowledge and less spine than he normally does. Doesn’t that trip you, Gravy, Contra and RCIV took down to Hattiesburg seem really stupid now? Keep posting your useless crap and playing stink finger with the boys, but please wash your hands before you handle those peas!
    I believe on another site you said The Viking personnel moves have been golden. Did I miss a super bowl the Vikes went to based on their free agent moves? Again you are satisfied with a franchise that year in and year deals its fans heartbreak. Oh, but you did beat the Pack twice last year!
    I hope Favre comes back…he is entertaining at the very least…..Light me up you self gratifying twerp!

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    While the 2009 season was one of my favorites, we don’t hve to wax nostalgic over the “one” season Brett played for us – I would put money on at least one more season with us.
    Also… we’ve dominated our division since 1969: 18 division championships to the Packer’s 9 and Chicago’s 9… and the Lions are also in the division. Allegedly.
    So – we have MANY great seasons to look back on.

    Yeah, being the best of 4 or 5 teams is really something, isn’t it? No, wait it’s mediocrity.
    I’m curious about something.. Why did you choose 1969 to begin your stats? The Vikings’ first season was 1961. Oh, that’s right.. They weren’t any good until 1969. So you started there. Nice try.
    Since the Vikings were founded, the Packers have won 3 Super Bowls and 3 NFL championships (not like the Vikings championship, either–they won their last game).
    Since the Vikings were founded, the Bears have won 1 Super Bowl and 1 NFL championship.
    Since the Vikings were founded, the Lions have… Well, they’ve been the Lions. So they’ve won exactly as many Super Bowls as the Vikings.
    Hell, even Tampa’s won a Super Bowl since the Vikings have been around.

    Since when is “deer hunter” an insult? Seriously. I think Favre’s an egotistic, lying, manipulating, croc-wearing drama queen with a strong arm. But whether or not he’s a deer hunter doesn’t enter into the equation. Unless you’re one of those PETA types… In which case I automatically hate you more than him.

  164. I will not defend Favre’s indecision, since he changes his mind every day. The media, however, should know better since he’s been playing for 19 years. I thought that hype on Monday was ridiculous and the sports networks were just looking to spice up a slow news day. They know that Favre sells.

    He lies. Period. The question is whether you believe his teammates, who are on record saying he sent those messages, or him. And most people at this point are done believing Favre.
    Yes, the media run with it. They always will. And he knows it. He’d better hope they don’t run with this story about the dicpics… Unless it’s not true.

  170. Shitterson, I was being sincere. It was refreshing to hear something not retarded out of you, but you immediately revert back to idiot mode.
    I suppose you think Al Harris did a great job defending Plax, and that McCarthy did a great job making adjustments to stop him?
    You’re right thought, the defensive performances were not similar. Against Arizona, it was a complete meltdown. But against NY, it was a case of an overwhelmed coach failing to make adjustments to cover a guy who torched the D for 140+ yards in the first half. But that’s Favre’s fault too, right? If he wasn’t such a diva, Harris wouldn’t have been such a terrible corner.
    You’re such a schmuck.
