Jeff Fisher won’t discuss Brett Favre

Fisher AP

St. Louis coach Jeff Fisher would rather not discuss this week’s news that the Rams reached out to Brett Favre to see if he would be interested in coming out of retirement.

Asked by reporters about the Favre news, Fisher said team policy was to confirm that the Rams worked out quarterback Tyler Thigpen and signed quarterbacks Austin Davis and Brady Quinn, but that the Rams wouldn’t confirm any other conversations they had with any other players or agents.

“During the process I didn’t disclose any information, and I don’t feel a need to disclose any information after the process,” Fisher said. “That’s how we are. I’d be happy to talk about Thigpen, who we worked out that we disclosed, and the two that we signed. That’s consistent with our philosophy and our policy.”

Asked if he was denying the report that the Rams had reached out to Favre, Fisher tried to turn the attention toward the Rams’ upcoming game on Monday night, saying, “I don’t talk about the process. Do you want to talk about the Seahawks?”

One reporter then asked Fisher, “Would Brett have been ready for the Seahawks?”

Fisher answered, “Nice try.”

Which is apparently the same thing Bus Cook said when the Rams reached out about Favre.

    Nooooooooo!

    This team won’t be relevant until they move back to LA.

    joesixpack,

    I wouldn’t say “everyone” rejoiced over Favre’s real-honest-to-goodness retirement. I loved watching him play more than just about any other quarterback in my lifetime, except perhaps Elway. I’d love watching him play again. But I don’t want to see him taken off the field in a hearse. It’s over–and he knows that.

    Wait a week and Mr. Brett Favre might come out of retirement.

    Truth is, Brett Favre is NOT ready for the Seahawks.

    Favre rarely lived up to his mythical status.

  6. f1restarter says: Oct 25, 2013 7:26 PM

    Favre can’t remember that he retired.

    Good one Filth. I love the sarcasm.

    I think this game will be alot closer than people think. It’s a divisional game and the Rams have a pretty stingy defense.

    Hawks are fair game on the road. They still win but it will be a fight.

    Favre was intercepted passing on the opportunity.

    “Would Brett have been ready for the Seahawks?”

    Ab-so-freakin-lutely!

    Fisher won’t admit that Lord Favre sexted him a blatant “No”

  12. grabgrabgrab says: Oct 25, 2013 8:28 PM

    At this juncture, nobody should be talking about Favre. Unless of course, you’re talking about his upcoming hall of fame induction.

  13. chazatlas says: Oct 25, 2013 9:19 PM

    If they wanted to go into circus mode they should have called Tebow. He’s more of a legitimate option than Favre.

    ************
    It might be a closer game than people predict, it is time however, to give up on the “Hawks are fair game on the road” line…

    KC 3 and 0 on the road
    Philadelphia and Seattle at 3 and 1.

    A bunch of teams at 2 and 1.

    All teams are fair game on the road or at home.

    Seattle may well be the “road champs” this season. SF the last Road game that looks like a tough match.

    Remaining road games (after Monday)
    @ Atlanta
    @ SF
    @ NY Giants

    5 of the final 8 games are at home. Toughest opponents most likely NO, possibly Arizona.

    Fisher was pretty much saying, “I have no faith in Clemens whatsoever.”

    Earl Thomas is going to feast like a rabid dog eating lamb chops all game long.

    Suck it Fischer! Your offer was less attractive than Sterger’s!

    Joesixpack, wtf are you talking about?! What football fan would rejoice when the toughest football player to ever lace em up finally got beat into submission? Not this one. Football became much less fun when Favre left. The raider game after his dads death was the most emotional game I’ve ever watched. He played through injuries that would have put today’s qb’s on the bench for weeks. At 40 years old he had a season that 90% of todays guys will never have. Any true football fan appreciated the hell out ta this guy…..even if they didn’t like him.

    If he had a lick of sense he would sign Tebow. They have a great defense and Tebow could score enough to win games. Instead they will go with some scrubs.

  19. natijim235 says: Oct 25, 2013 10:54 PM

    he doesn’t want anyone to think he’s a nut bag in bringing back an over the hill QB

    What am I missing about “Coach” Jeff Fisher. He is in his 19th season as a head coach…do you know how many have been Winning seasons…six. This is a coach that has had Warren Moon and Steve McNair as QB’s…six winning seasons in 19…what am I missing.

    Speak for yourself, not for “everyone,” SMH.

    Favre would have been ready, he would have told everyone what to do on every play and he would have winged it.

    I miss the ole gunslinger.

    This last chapter, like the last 5 + years, is just another Favre stab at attention.

    Does anyone really think any NFL team would want Favre to play QB for them?

    He had 19 INT and 11 TD’s in his last season…..and now he is 44!

    Does anyone recall a month ago when his agent came out with a report that Favre is in the best shape of his life.

    No team is asking about Favre.

  23. golforepar says: Oct 26, 2013 10:22 AM

    lenbias, You needed to watch the Vikings Monday to know Favre can’t be worse. Favre is a legend! REAL fans respect him!

  24. newjerseygiants says: Oct 26, 2013 11:09 AM

    Apparently, Tebow is blacklisted.

  25. turfrage says: Oct 26, 2013 2:18 PM

    According to the REAL media who aren’t just gossiping, the conversation of Favre took place while negotiating the re-signing of Davis with their shared agent. This is media trying to make a story of nothing!! But despite THEIR desperation to sensationalize this, lots of people would love to watch Farve play again, even at 50!
