View Full Version : Favre wants to 'play against' Pack

An NFL source that has been in contact with Brett Favre over the last few days told the State Journal Favre still very much wants to play for the Packers' division rival, the Minnesota Vikings. Asked what his objective is in wanting to play again, Favre texted, "My intentions have been to play, and with Green Bay. They say no, so I still want to play in this division for obvious reasons, which I made clear to management. If they won't let me play in Green Bay, let me play against you. That's where I am." According to another NFL source, the idea of trading Favre to division rivals Minnesota or the Chicago Bears has always been viewed within the organization as an absolute last resort, and the team still doesn't consider such a deal a viable option. "If you can trade and get something for him, it's better than releasing him, but they would really be reluctant to trade him within the division," the league source said. However, the source that has been in contact with Favre said of a possible deal with the Vikings, "I think it's closer (to happening) than anyone thinks."

So after all that "no way he goes to the Vikings" routine I kept reading about, it looks like it may actually happen.

If he ends up in either Chicago or Minnesota, he would greatly improve both teams in need of a QB. As a NFL fan, seeing Favre anywhere but Green Bay will shock and probably make me double look just to make sure i'm not delusional, but seeing him playing against the Packers would make for a very entertaining game. I know it's all over the sports pages, but I can't wait to see where he goes... if anywhere.

The Vikings play in Green Bay on week 1 Monday night. Could you imagine...?
