Report: Vikings trio head to Mississippi to lure Favre back

NFL_allen.jpgExactly 52 weeks ago today, quarterback Brett Favre ended his second annual retirement, flying to Minnesota, reenacting the slow-speed O.J. Simpson chase, and signing with the Vikings.

With Favre showing no signs of doing the same thing today, a trio of Vikings reportedly have made the trek to Mississippi in the hopes of bringing him back.

According to Judd Zulgad of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, kicker Ryan Longwell, guard Steve Hutchinson, and defensive end Jared Allen flew to Hattiesburg to meet with Favre.

Maybe Allen, who is known for pretending to tie up a hog or a calf or whatever it is that gets tied up in a rodeo after notching a sack, will be charged with knocking Favre down, binding Favre’s limbs, and then tying him to the front of the airplane for the flight back to Minnesota.

    Word is that they actually are picking him up at the airport and welcoming him back to Minnesota. FYI.

  2. Dave says: Aug 17, 2010 1:32 PM

    OMG – why don’t they just give him a rubdown with a happy ending? Oh, wait, I bet Chilly has dibs in that if and when Favre ever actually gets to Minnesota this year…

  3. mattgso says: Aug 17, 2010 1:33 PM

    well I see … that….
    Aw shit. I’m tired of commenting on it.

  4. purpleguy says: Aug 17, 2010 1:33 PM

    They wouldn’t be flying down there if there was a reasonable expectation he’d be playing this year. T-Jack here we go.

  5. TryTheVeal says: Aug 17, 2010 1:35 PM

    What…. T-Jack didn’t make the trip?

    Might be a little hot for those boys in Hattiesgulch. Careful Jared, we love to eat fresh mullet down here.

  8. shingo says: Aug 17, 2010 1:37 PM

    Favre will play this year…..you heard it here first.

  9. CanadianVikingFan says: Aug 17, 2010 1:37 PM

    Or Hutch beats him up, Jared ties him up, then Longwell kicks him on the ground.

  10. Ryan_Mack says: Aug 17, 2010 1:38 PM

    How come they sent the only 3 white guys on the team?

  11. robert ethen says: Aug 17, 2010 1:38 PM

    After 3 hours at Favre’s house, Allen, Hutchinson, and Longwell have informed the Vikings that they are unsure at this time if they want to play another year, but will let the team know when they decide.

  12. Percy Nugz says: Aug 17, 2010 1:39 PM

    YES!!! anyone who says this is desperate is just afraid of playing the Vikings with Favre. Because you know they are winning the super bowl if he comes back.

  13. va4favre says: Aug 17, 2010 1:39 PM

    Another chance for the Favre haters to come out, but it’s clear that he was going to retire and it’s the Vikings who want him to reconsider. I would too since he is still one of the best.

  14. lebowski says: Aug 17, 2010 1:40 PM

    Go on with your Bad Saints Self, kid. See ya 9/9/10. We’ll see how much of a badass you are.

  16. derekinmadison says: Aug 17, 2010 1:42 PM

    wow. this organization refuses to stop stooping to the lowest levels to literally beg this guy to come back. Hey vikqueens, don’t say we Packer fans didn’t warn you about this guy. what a freaking joke is an understatement. Next, Childress will deny the story, watch and wait.

  17. Simdogga77 says: Aug 17, 2010 1:42 PM

    Most pathetic thing I have seen in a long time.
    I can’t even respect them as a club after this.

  21. Chapnasty. says: Aug 17, 2010 1:43 PM

    If I was any other QB on the entire Vikings roster I would demand a trade, demand to be cut or retire. This is a complete lack of respect to Jackson and Sage. I understand that Favre is likely the best option they have at QB but at some point you expect your teammates to rally around the guys who are there busting their butts trying to make the team. The Vikings are sad and I have lost all respect for any player that gets on a plane to go give someone a sexual favor.

  22. Chiefs2010 says: Aug 17, 2010 1:45 PM

    Have some beers with the ole’ boys then get back to camp..
    The divisions more competitive with GB and Rogers, but sill winnable..
    The Bears are a joke and the Lions, well, are the Lions..
    You only get one bite of the apple, Brett. Take some painkillers, play football, and enjoy what you’re best at..
    In the meantime, get bombed with your teammates.

    This type of stuff must really boost T Jack’s confidence. Funny thing is, when Brett finally decides he’s thrown enough int’s, these same clowns will be telling everyone how much they believe in Jackson. Pathetic really…

  29. va4favre says: Aug 17, 2010 1:47 PM

    I sure hope that they can convince him to play, but it is not looking good. It would not be the same NFL without him.

    LOL – what a bunch of sorry losers. Begging this idiot to come back, when all he’s done for a decade, is ruin playoff games with ineptitude and stupid, horrible passes at the worst possible times.
    The Minnehaha Bi-Queens, LOL.

  32. Jeremy says: Aug 17, 2010 1:48 PM

    I thought it was all about the ankle. What are they doing to do? Are they faith healers in the offseason or something?

  33. steamrod says: Aug 17, 2010 1:49 PM

    Of course they’re desperate and of course he’ll play. If he doesn’t then vikings will be mediocre at best. Mediocre doesn’t keep chilly his job, get a new stadium, or keep the team in Minn. So yeah, he’ll play.

  34. Calistin says: Aug 17, 2010 1:50 PM

    Bring Vicodin and Coeds, he’s sure to be inticed back. Oh and some crocs…

  35. minnesconsin_ad says: Aug 17, 2010 1:50 PM

    Can you even fathom Ted Thompson or Mike McCarthy back in ’08 sending Mark Tauscher, Aaron Kampman, and Donald Driver down to Hattiesburg to beg for Brett’s return? Remember what TT sent to Favre? His LOCKER.
    i’m so happy for brett, he’s been looking for an organization to slurp on him like this for too long. The vikings and favre are truly perfect for each other.

  36. dabbflappy says: Aug 17, 2010 1:51 PM

    It’s been three hours since Deadspin, of all places, reported on the connection between football concussions and ALS — Lou Gehrig’s Disease — and that NFL players are 8 times more likely to get the disease.

    The Vikings have to be the most pathetic franchise in America. Chili goes down there twice and blows Lord Favre is bad enough. Now, 3 players are missing valuable practice time to beg Favre to please come back…. If I was a Vikes fan I would be embarrassed.

  45. Florida727 says: Aug 17, 2010 1:57 PM

    I have to admit that even as a Bears fan, I’ve always liked Favre. This is the end-of-the-line for me. Screw this guy. I hope he starts the first 3 games of this year then gets knocked senseless and can’t play. That’ll leave him at 299 consecutive starts, not the magical 300 mark. THAT would be poetic justice.

  46. bigrig says: Aug 17, 2010 1:57 PM

    Oh boy. If Favre doesn’t play, is life worth living?
    Probably not for Contra, FofF, Pervy, and Twizzlysticks plus the other half dozen Vikings groupies who live on this website.

  47. Green n' Gold says: Aug 17, 2010 1:58 PM

  54. Jack Acid says: Aug 17, 2010 2:05 PM

    Wow, never heard of these kinds of lengths to get a 40 year old QB with a bad ankle to come back after costing his team a Super Bowl appearance with a terrible throw….again.

  55. jcarollo says: Aug 17, 2010 2:08 PM

    If Favre loved those guys as much as he claims, then why isn’t he up in Minnesota working with his team like every other injured player who is technically under contract?
    Boy, what i’d give to be a fly on the wall listening in on Chilly begging Favre to come back. He has already sold is sole last year, what more can he offer?

  56. SpartaChris says: Aug 17, 2010 2:09 PM

    LMAO! What a complete laughing stock! Greg Bedard said it best: “Do the Vikings even practice? Why do they have training camp? QB doesn’t come. Guys skip for joy rides to the south. And Childress bitches when Adrian Peterson doesn’t show for OTAs. A. Complete. Joke.”
    The sheer desperation of the Vikings organization is utterly hilarious.

  57. se18a29 says: Aug 17, 2010 2:09 PM

    We love ya Brett!!!! This is our year! We will send you off to a great retirement AFTER you lead us to and WIN the Superbowl. It’s your destiny!! BELIEVE!!! You were put here with the Vikes for a purpose. Nothing is left for chance. Bring home the Superbowl to MN!!!

  58. mrcmos says: Aug 17, 2010 2:10 PM

    Let’s put the chiding and insults aside for a moment.
    Doesn’t everyone, or most everyone think that this is absolutely pathetic?
    How can one geriatric QB command so darn much kow-towing and pandering. Don’t forget he did not lead you to the promised land, just as he didn’t in GB. His bone-headed throws cost GB and MN a trip to the SuperBowl.
    I mean, will there be a “Kissing of the Ring” ceremony for Christ’s sake.
    In all honesty, I don’t think you will make it to the SB anyway, so why not go with what you have and make the best of it.

  62. Jack Acid says: Aug 17, 2010 2:15 PM

    This is less on Favre than it is the Vikes. Favre has said all year he is unsure, he is clearly not 100% healthy and may not even be able to play.
    By my scorecard, it’s the Vikings that are the laughing stock for actually doing nothing to prepare themselves for this possibility.
    If Favre doesn’t play, and the Vikes miss the playoffs, Childress should be fired. He was foolish to keep all his eggs in one, failing, broken down basket.

  63. Love_Boat_Scandal says: Aug 17, 2010 2:16 PM

    Sad, pathetic, silly, ridiculous, absurd……and every d-bag that calls himself a Vi-Queen fan is on the edge of his seat.
    It only makes sense that the biggest d-bag in the NFL (Allen) would be first on the plane, he probably missed getting spanked by Favre (Fav-ruh?), but Lord knows there will be “pants on the ground” in Hattiesburg today.
    Sorry ‘Queens fans…….your shot was last year with this guy.
    It’s all over now…..and I can’t wait to watch the train-wreck this year.

    The last time I laughed this loud was when Tracy Porter picked off Favre last year. In fact if you listen real close you can still hear the laughter of millions of Packer fans up there in the stratosphere….
    The good news for Vikings fans is pretty soon these long time underachievers will be in LA and you can focus on the Timberwolves and the Gopher football team…..

  70. Ron says: Aug 17, 2010 2:23 PM

    As a Viking fan, I thought I’d never say this, but I can understand why the Packers did what they did. Favre has been holding teams hostage for the past 5 years and now the Vikings are kissing up to Favre. I predict right here that Favre will get sick of Childress and the players pressuring him to play and he will retire(again). I hope he does because the Vikings can still win the division without Favre, they did it two years ago. It would force the Vikings to be more of a running team, and the team wouldn’t be about one guy, they would be a united team. That is, if Childress stops kissing Favre’s butt and moves on without him…

  71. Matt S. says: Aug 17, 2010 2:24 PM

  73. Vikes8480 says: Aug 17, 2010 2:26 PM

    I think the best part out of all of this is how pissed off it makes all the Fudge Packer fans. They have to jump all over every post and say how pathetic Viking fans and organization is and how washed up Favre is. They cap it all off by reminding Vikings fans how many championships they have won, All of this because they are insanely butthurt because Favre and the Vikings spanked the Pukers twice last year and they can’t accept the fact that Gayron Rodgers is a closet homo.

  75. In1Ear&OutYourMother says: Aug 17, 2010 2:28 PM

    For roughly 10 years he was treated like an immortal in Wisconsin. Most of Packer Nation was still covered in his juice when he got traded to NYJ. Of course Favre expects special treatment now. Any franchise with the Vikings talent (outside of QB) would do all that they could to get him back. He took a Good team and made them Very Good. Damn near Great. Isn’t a part Chilly’s job to do what it takes to give his team their best chance at winning?

    Excerpt from Milwaukee Journal article….at least the beat reporters there are more objective than packer fans……there’s no way anyone in wi. wants BF to play again but the fans like to talk tough, lol.
    “Rodgers was then asked if the Packers would prefer to see Favre retire and thereby hand over the keys to the NFC North and a clearer path to Super Bowl XLV.
    “He has nothing to do with me or our team this year,” Rodgers said.
    He wasn’t smiling. And he wasn’t entirely accurate, either.
    In the preseason opener against Cleveland on Saturday, the Packers’ inept pass defense picked up where it left off last season, so Favre’s decision, like last year, is directly connected to Green Bay’s fate in the division. Lest we forget, Favre’s numbers against the Cheeseheads last season were: 41-for-59 (69.5 percent) for 515 yards, seven touchdowns, no interceptions, no sacks and two victories that were the difference between the Vikings being 12-4 and the Packers being 11-5.
    Before Saturday’s game, the assumption was the Packers’ pass defense would improve by virtue of being in Year 2 of defensive coordinator Dom Capers’ 3-4 scheme. That’s tougher to assume following the 27-24 loss to the Browns.
    While it’s unwise to make conclusions based on a preseason game, Saturday’s developments are at the very least worrisome to those who remember the Packers’ 51-45 overtime playoff loss at Arizona, the 37-36 meltdown in Pittsburgh or both losses to Favre and the Vikings.

    It’s because he had a better year than every QB in the NFL last year (including Manning, look at the numbers) He would be an upgrade to 29 teams…

  85. sand0 says: Aug 17, 2010 2:42 PM

    Pretty strange story to say the least. It makes sense to send someone important to get the situation closed out once and for all. But to send players instead of management is very unorthodox.
    This is like a movie or something. I half expect Favre to be throwing footballs through a tire swing in the back yard when the players show up.
    But hey this is big business and you do all you can. Doesn’t matter what people think about it. Most of those folks don’t want to see Favre slinging in purple again this season anyways.

  86. MrHumble says: Aug 17, 2010 2:43 PM

    Reading thru the comments, all the posts from packer fans have the same common thread……hide behind a computer and expose your sexual deviant behaviors/thoughts in describing any situation…..gotta feel sorry for the females and animals in wisconsin, can only imagine the lives they must have to live…..pathetic, but it is where john gacy and jeffrey dahmer became infamous also…..can it be the water???? nah, gotta be the cheap beer.

    That’s right Packer fans. Sit back and watch the Vikings roll the Packers again! With or without Favre!

    Go on with your Bad Saints Self, kid. See ya 9/9/10. We’ll see how much of a badass you are.

    Why, because you and Bayou Warrior will both be suiting up for the game?

    Maybe those three wanted to get out of training camp for a while?

    Underestimating the power of the mullet is like counting on Florio to post something non Brett Farve related…
    Don’t do it.

  92. AO says: Aug 17, 2010 2:49 PM

    ViQueens are keep getting more pathetic day by day from the team to their fans. Childress is not enough and now more heads are coming for Favre (no punt intended) hahahahaha ….

  93. DallasRavens says: Aug 17, 2010 2:50 PM

    PS.
    Someone get Florio’s knee pads ready should Brett Farve pull… a well… Brett Farve and unretire.

    Oh please Brett, Please Please Please, Pretty Please!!! What a joke!!!!

    Right now…somewhere along highways 35W, 394, and 94…there’s crews of highway sign members at the ready, all set to erect a half dozen dark pink signs dedicated to welcoming back Lord Fart to the Twink Cities. Let’s hope she’s well rested.
    Ahh yes, the Queen Bee is soon to be back in town….throwing crucial INT’s at the worst possible moments in pro sports history.
    Almost brings a tear to one’s eye.
    I can’t wait until he comes back to earth this year and pisses away any chance you’ll have of the Lombardi Trophy…again. This year by week 9 or so….if he lasts that long.
    Suckers.

  98. LAEaglefan says: Aug 17, 2010 2:57 PM

    Too bad the Vikings didn’t go out and get a backup QB who can actually play, so they wouldn’t have to get on their hands and knees to beg Favre to play this year. How much more pathetic can an football organization get than this?

  99. Zshot says: Aug 17, 2010 3:06 PM

    Does anyone actually participate in a Viking training camp?

  100. jibfest says: Aug 17, 2010 3:13 PM

    Maybe they aren’t aware. This is all part of his plan. To have them fly down, kiss his A, etc. The media thinks we care, we don’t. I only came on here to rip Favre. I used to respect the man until he started this a few years back.

  101. flop 4 strahan says: Aug 17, 2010 3:26 PM

    Good God! Even as a Packer fan I’m truly starting to feel sorry for the Queenies.
    Packer insiders for years have been telling us BF was an overemotional 12 yr. old whiny little girl in desperate need of attention.
    At some point in life Queenies you need to be a man. Packers sent BF his locker to Mississippi w/ a big FU. BF flew up to Green Bay and basically sat outside TTs office holding his breath and stomping his foot for 3 days. This is NOT going to end well for you guys.

    Does anyone else find it funny that Packer fans name their usernames after Favre (usually with something oh so clever like BRINT FAVRE or FAVRE SUCKS), comment on all of Favre’s/Vikings story, and laugh at us for being “pathetic”?
    Just a wee bit ironic…

    John Clayton reported on ESPN that the Three Amigos had gone to Mississippi to “beg” for Brett to play. He repeated the word “Beg” over and over. Then they brought on Bruschi, who said “no way Jared Allen begs anybody. They went down to get an answer one way or another. They would never beg.”
    Now if the Clayton version is the one the media runs with, Jared and Hutch will sure be happy with the way Brett caused them to be portrayed in front of the sporting public, like a couple of sad sacks begging for help for their sorry team.
    That will make them happy. Yeah, good chemistry.
    “Daddy, did you have to beg Mr. Favre to play?”

    MrHumble, John Gacy I believe did all of his killing in his home state of Illinois, although some may have been in Iowa, not sure. Don’t believe he ever visited Wisconsin. As the old joke goes, you have a lot about which to be humble.

    Lest we forget, Favre’s numbers against the Cheeseheads last season were: 41-for-59 (69.5 percent) for 515 yards, seven touchdowns, no interceptions, no sacks and two victories that were the difference between the Vikings being 12-4 and the Packers being 11-5.
    —————-
    And lest we forget, Rodgers’ numbers against the Brett Favres last season were: 52-for-78 (66.6%) for 671 yards, five touchdowns, one interceptions and a 109.5 QB rating..
    But the Vikings made most QBs look like Joe Montana last season, so that kind of devalues those numbers.

    ==================================
    Adam:
    Packers- 3218 yards passing allowed
    29 touchdown passes allowed
    297 points allowed
    Vikings- 3494 passing yards allowed
    26 touchdown passes allowed
    312 points allowed
    17 ypg more allowed by the Vikes – wow
    3 less td passes allowed—-hmmmmm
    15 more points allowed—-less than a point a game.
    I guess facts aren’t on speaking terms with you either.
    Fine, fine. packers #6 pass defense, Vikes #19.
    Against good QB’s they sure had a tough time
    Favre twice – both losses
    Big Ben – loss
    Palmer -loss
    Warner – loss
    Outside of matthews, they still can’t generate a pass rush. If they don’t, the top tier QBS will continue to pick them apart.

    For some reason, you left out the 14 sacks, including a safety, 2 fumbles, and 2 losses. Weird.

    Interesting. Although a majority of the team is black, they sent three rich white guys to visit Brett’s house in Mississippi. Schism?

    Paul Allen – “Brett Favre goes back to pass he pumps, now he fires over the middle. Intercepted, I can’t believe what I’m seeing right now. It was intercepted by Tracy Porter, near side to the 40 and John Sullivan runs him down at the 47 yard line. You’ve got to be kidding me, I can’t believe what I just saw.”
    Other announcer – “Looking at that play he should have just held on to it Paul, he should’ve. He could’ve easily have gotten 5 or 6 yards if he would have just pulled that thing down and dove foreward.”
    Paul Allen – “But why do you even ponder passing, I mean you can take a knee and try a 56 yard field goal. This is not Detroit man! This is the Super Bowl.”
