About three months ago, I wrote an article titled "Deja Vu for Vikings Country?"
Shortly after, Favre retired from the NFL via conference call.
Okay, I admit, after that I figured we had heard the last from No. 4.
Now we sit in what I always had thought could be a dream: Brett Favre on the brink of becoming a Minnesota Viking. This is something I thought I could only see in a Madden game.
Am I saying this will happen? No. Am I saying it won't? Absolutely not.
What I am saying is nobody can be too shocked by this.
According to multiple reports, Favre and Vikings head coach Brad Childress have a meeting set for Wednesday night at an undisclosed location.
Media members around the nation have shared their opinions on the subject. Some say Favre wants redemption and will do whatever it takes. Some say Childress will have to woo Favre into signing with the Vikings.
It seems like I now can't believe anything I hear until it is confirmed by Chris Mortensen or John Clayton of ESPN.
Now, just because I have no clue what will happen doesn't mean I can't throw my two cents into the mix. So here goes: Favre will be wearing purple.
It seems as though everything has fallen into place. Favre got his release from the Jets, and I am assuming he still wants his revenge against Packers GM Ted Thompson.
Oh yeah, and he'd be playing with the best running back in the game in Adrian Peterson, something he has never had in his career.
Now, their could be negatives also.
We have heard all about Favre's bicep injury on his throwing arm that he suffered late last season. Was that the reason for his rough run down the stretch? I'm guessing it had a lot to do with it.
Also, is his motivation to play strictly to beat Green Bay twice a year? As much as I want to beat Green Bay with Favre, I hope he is as jacked up for all 14-plus games, not just the ones against the Packers.
So as this process goes on—and hopefully it won't for too much longer—keep in mind that nothing Favre does should be a surprise. We have been through this before, it's almost the same situation as last year
Is this deja vu I am feeling?
