Brett Favre informed the Minnesota Vikings that he is retiring. Again. Maybe.
With Brett, you can’t be sure. Maybe he is frustrated because his ankle hurt this morning. Maybe it will feel better tomorrow. What’s certain is that the Vikes are a better team by far with Favre than without him. With Favre, they will contend for the Conference title. Without him, the Vikings are in the running for a wild card.
Why is this good news for the Redskins? For a week or so, the football talking heads will focus on Favre instead of Albert Haynesworth. And because the Vikings are on the Redskins’ schedule November 28. Mike Shanahan is 2-3 in regular season games against Favre, not counting the win over the Packers in the 1998 Super Bowl. Joe Gibbs never beat a Favre-led team.
We have Favre just where we want him. Off the schedule.
Point After: Jason Reid–Shanahan not sold on Favre retirement.
(Vikings owner Ziggy) Wilf confident Favre will be back
