No second thoughts for Favre, yet

Quarterback Brett Favre has a problem with making decisions and sticking to them before the season begins.  But once the season begins, he never has had second thoughts.

Yet.

Asked whether he had any regrets regarding his decision to return for a 20th year while making the one-hour, 40-minute drive to Hattiesburg, Mississippi for the weekend baptism of his grandson, Favre said he’s still fine with his third annual unretirement.

“Had we won the ballgame, that trip would have been been a lot easier
for those three days and for that ride back,” Favre said, per Judd Zulgad of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune.  “But
as I said in my first press conference back, I’m here, I’m committed,
win or lose
, I’ll do everything I can.  It just would have been a little
bit sweeter had we won that football game.  But I wasn’t having second
thoughts, no.”

For his second game of his second season with the Vikings, a second ailment has been added next to Favre’s name on the injury report.  In addition a having a bad ankle, Favre had a back injury; he nevertheless fully participated in practice.

Limited in practice on Wednesday were receiver Percy Harvin (hip), cornerback Chris Cook (knee), cornerback Cedric Griffin (knee), defensive tackle Jimmy Kennedy (knee), and tackle Bryant McKinnie (finger). 

Running back Toby Gerhart (knee) and center John Sullivan (calf) fully participated in practice.

For the Dolphins, who’ll play at Minnesota on Sunday, defensive end Ikaika Alama-Francis (illness), linebacker Channing Crowder (groin) and defensive end Jared Odrick (ankle) did not practice.  Odrick reportedly will miss the next two games.

    Florio, I’m pretty sure we all know that if Favre says he’s having second thoughts, you’ll run 28 stories about it. Can you spare us the lame stories about him not having second thoughts? Seriously. This garbage reporting is getting really, really old.

    Oh Florio. You’re such a dumb ass. I love how you throw the word “yet” in the title. Reading what Favre said, the words yet didn’t show up once. Weird. As a matter of fact the words “committed, winning or losing i’m here” and “second thoughts, no”, came directly from favre. Weird how you always add something to stir something up. No wonder you get zero respect no only on your site, but around the league.

    No hate, but he guy did play for the Packers for almost two decades. His number will eventually be retired and his name put up in Lambeau Field. I would say those are good reasons for him to be a point of interest for Packer fans.

    CornFlorio, I know you won’t have the ‘nads to answer this, but I am going to ask anyway –
    Why do you contantly feel the need to add little snide comments to what you post about various players. Favre, Revis, Haynesworth….you do it with all of them. The little yet in the title of this post is a perfect example. You act as though you know what is going thru a players mind, even if it is not what he says. Why Why Why?????

  10. JimmySmith says: Sep 15, 2010 9:38 PM

    I suspect his only regret is having Sage announce to the world that BrINT really thinks Col Klink is clueless. The season would go much smoother if the sentiment wasn’t made public.
    Losing has a way of testing the character of a football team and when the head coach (and I use that term loosely as it applies to Col Klink) and Qb don’t see eye to eye on the play calling, the $hit will eventually hit the fan. And when it does, it will be replayed on ESPN in a continous loop for 48 hours so the whole sports world can see what happens when you turn over the reigns of a team to one of the 53 players. They have about as much chance this season as gerbil at a Viking fan party on a Saturday night.

    I’m always thinking the same thing.. Who knows, maybe insecurity?

  12. Dolfan34 says: Sep 15, 2010 9:45 PM

    Hopefully the Dolphins knock him on his a*$ this weekend and he has secon thoughts about coming back before the first quarter is over.

  13. Contra says: Sep 15, 2010 10:02 PM

    Hey Florio, before you start second guessing Favre’s thoughts maybe you should start second guessing the grammar your ‘staff’ uses. Spell check!

    Something about Favre stomping on a Packer towel if I recall.

  22. evanhfox says: Sep 15, 2010 10:36 PM

    hey florio – can you clarify on when his 3rd retirement was? i dont recall him every saying he wouldn’t play this past offseason.
    its one thing to be biases. its a whole other thing to change the facts to make your biases seem more rooted in logic and not your hatred for the guy.

  23. footballisfun says: Sep 15, 2010 10:40 PM

    Chili is a joke. Always has been. Favre knows Chili is a joke. For some reason, Favre feels sorry for the team, of course knowing that Chili is a joke.
    Chili has tried every gimmick he can think of. Wilf has given Chili everything he has wanted. Yet, Chili will not be able to do jack-shit with it. It’s all sad, really. An incompetent coach, coupled with an incompetent owner, because he’s too dumb to realize that Chili was nothing but a head-phone carrier for Andy when he was with the Eagles.

    If you had to carry the weight Green Bay Packers faithful for 16 seasons you’d have a back injury too.
    Hey-O!

  25. justen1 says: Sep 15, 2010 10:44 PM

    Alma-Francis is a linebacker for the Phins, not a DE. He changed positions in training camp. He did not play in week one, but should split time with rookie Misi as an OLB in the Dolphins defense this week.

  26. PackFaninPackLand says: Sep 15, 2010 10:47 PM

    Where’s the “yet” part Florio ????
    Yet another case of Florio trying to Keith Olbermann-ize a story.
    i.e. make up something that isn’t there.
    Florio, you are so sad.

    Perfectly said Alleged_Free. Florio has been obsessing on Favre for years now. Favre keeps making him look stupid, so Florio keeps trying to manufacture BS about him. Florio should be canned.

    More like the other way around my friend. Now you Viking fans can carry him. We got sick of Championship game last minute soul crushing interceptions. He’s yours now, so enjoy that SB victory, Oh wait, nevermind.

    Bull. I’d bet anything that Favre wouldn’t have returned if he had known about Rice’s carefully hidden injury.

    I guess while the rest of the vikes were watching the Pack game (according to Stanko), Favre must have been busy falling asleep in a rocking chair after watching Matlock.
    Hopefully, Stanko will fill Favre in on the play of Mathews and the butt kicking he delivered to both Kolb (KO’ed) and Vick (TKO’ed). There’s a reason Vick let Mathews arm tackle him for a loss. It was Vicks “No Mas” moment and I don’t blame Vick.
    Favre will never have his name in the Ring of Honor because he isn’t an honorable man. He might be inducted after his grand kid is dead into the Pack HOF, but he will never have his name next to Lombardi’s, Wolf’s and all the other great Packers. That’s just foolishness.
    Since the vikes are moving to LA and will change their name (50 years of loser ball wil make folks want to forget the vikes) it’s doubtful his name is ever associated with honor or appears in a stadium. As well it shouldn’t.

    Come on guys, we love Florio!!!! It gives us someone to hate!!!

  36. Schatt Maub says: Sep 16, 2010 12:45 AM

    Florio’s just mad because he didn’t get one of those Favre crotch texts.

  37. Little Tommy says: Sep 16, 2010 6:17 AM

    Give him multiple turf burns on his ass and he’ll start rethinking this whole soap opera.

    Florio’s antics to cater to the Favre hating crowd is getting quite boringsome.

  42. Steeler Fan in Germantown says: Sep 16, 2010 10:19 AM

    I can think of about 4 million reasons why he is not having second thoughts. The Vikes will probably offer him another 4 or 5 million reasons next year to, BECAUSE THEY ARE TOO
    #$%^ING STUPID TO ADDRESS THE PROBLEM UP FRONT!!!!
