Vikings quarterback Brett Favre has yet to say much about the controversy that currently is making his 20th NFL season one to forget. But he has apologized to his teammates for the distraction, according to Chris Mortensen of ESPN.
Per Mort, Favre also said that he plans to play “lights out tonight.”
History says that he could. Peter King of SI.com points out in his Monday Morning Quarterback column that Favre has indeed played “lights out” when facing extreme personal situations.
Nearly seven years ago, Favre had the game of his life the day after his father suddenly died. Last year, Favre was constantly booed at Lambeau Field but nevertheless picked apart the Packers.
On that note, I’m packing up the PFT portable Commodore 64 and hitchhiking out to East Rutherford for tonight’s game. If you have Comcast SportsNet New England, look for me at about 6:30 p.m. ET in a segment with Michael Holley. If you get the Vikings Radio Network, listen for me with Paul Allen and Pete Bercich in the third quarter.
