As the Vikings, the Jets, and the NFL continue to process allegations that have been made against quarterback Brett Favre — and potentially brace for more of the same — Jay Glazer of FOX reports that other Vikings players wonder whether the situation will affect Favre’s performance in the same manner that the brouhaha involving Tiger Woods affected his performance as a golfer.
It’s a legitimate concern, and we think that the next question is whether it already has affected Favre’s performance.
He hasn’t been the same this year, and the allegations first surfaced in August. Possibly, he has been concerned about the storm to come. If so, the fact that the storm finally has arrived could actually provide a bit of a relief, in a weird sort of way.
Either way, Favre will be the center of attention on Monday night, even with Randy Moss making his return to the Vikings.
