Brett Favre made an unscheduled chat with the media on Thursday, showing some optimism that he could play this Sunday against the Patriots.
Out of his walking boot, Favre said he hoped to return to practice for Friday.
“I wouldn’t put anything past me, to be honest with you,” Favre said, via Tom Pelissero of ESPN1500.com.
There has been some speculation that Vikings coach Brad Childress could sit Favre because of the injury even if Favre says he’s ready. Favre said he’s unsure what he would have to do in practice to show he could play.
“We haven’t talked about it really,” Favre said. “I’ve been getting treatment. I don’t think that’s an unusual thing with me.”
He’s right. Which is why we still can’t believe Favre will sit.
