Brad Childress in Hattiesburg visiting Favre

Posted on: July 19, 2010 2:41 pm
 
The "Brett Favre Watch" -- an annual event in which the media, fans and some NFL team are held hostage by the whims of a veteran quarterback -- should get revved up pretty, pretty, pretty hard starting today.

That's because Vikings coach Brad Childress is in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, at Southern Miss' 7-on-7 passing camp, which Favre routinely attends . Childress was approached by WDAM TV and when asked about his visit, responded like so:

"You can fill in the blanks."

Don't mind if I do!

How does "To lock down Favre and avoid getting stuck holding a bag with Tavaris Jackson and Sage Rosenfels inside" sound?

Probably pretty accurate, although if you disagree and think he's there for the lovely weather that the deep south provides in the middle of July, please feel free to say as much in the comments.

It is worth noting that a) Favre was unwilling last week to make a commitment and b) it's highly unlikely Childress is down there pressuring Favre to make a decision now -- as long as No. 4 is committed to joining the Vikings at any reasonable point before the season begins, he'll be a more than welcome addition, not to mention an upgrade from the previously mentioned backups.

Of course, for the rest of us, that means we get full-on saturation until he finally makes up his mind. Although since we've suffered through LeBrocalypse Now since the last Favre Watch, this one should at least be easier to handle.

The way GB dishonoured Sir Brett after 16yrs of hard service, IF MIN wins a SB title...he's going into the HOF as a MIN Viking Baby! That's how I see it. After the Ted T debockle it wouldn't surprise me the least. It was an utter disgrace how they did that in GB. 16yrs and you kick the guy out and EXPECT him to crawl under a hole and die. A real man gets back up and fights. FAVRES FIGHTING BACK.

Bozeman3,

Until gauranteed contracts are the norm, then every NFL player has the right to hold a team hostage. Just like every NFL team has the right to tear up a contract when they are no longer satsfied and not hav to honor the contract they signed that player to.

You don't know much, do you?  Teams can't "tear up" contracts.  They can release or trade a player under the terms spelled out in the contract.  The players agree to those terms and happily sign these contracts.  Why?  Because of the windfall of guaranteed money.  I can tell you that Albert Haynseworth prays every night thusly: "Dear God, bless Bobby and Sadie, and my dog Fluffy... and please God, let the the Redskins release me, so that I can get my fingers on that accelerated bonus and then be free to go sign another contract with a team that is willing to give me even MORE guaranteed money."

It's funny to hear another sports writer complain about Farve's annual decision. The only reason we have a Farve watch is because you cannot find anything better to write about. Try covering a real story instead of trying to make a guy look like a jerk for resting and testing an injured ankle. Farve has done nothing this year that suggests he is acting badly. He was hurt, he had surgery, he will return if he can.

Stop with the bad articles and go out and find some worthwhile sports news.

will Brett Farve go Into the hall of fame as a Viking

Sometimes teams will sign the player then retire them on that team. Green bay may sign him when he wants to retire, if Farve wants to. I cant remember what player did that about 5 years ago...The player was paid a million bucks too. Id like to see him retire as a Viking and be in the Hall of Fame as one too. Sorry Pack fans, but you booed the man when he walked back into his old stadium. Unappreciative bastards have to wait another 20 years for a Hall of fame QB to stroll through

I have one question will Brett Farve go Into the hall of fame as a Viking? I think so after being disrespected by the Packers managment and coaches I do believe he will go in as a Viking what you Packer backers think bout that?

For everyone out there talking about how stupid Brett Favre is I wanted to remind you that Rainman was a ruh-tard and he practically bankrupted a casino.

Of course, for the rest of us, that means we get full-on saturation until he finally makes up his mind. Although since since the last Favre Watch, this one should at least be easier to handle.
The only reason we will get a full on saturation is because the media wants us to.  The only reason we had to suffer through LeBron's issue is because the media wanted us to.  Pretty soon we are going to have to read about how Lindsay Lohan was seen talking to Michael Vicks lawyers or some other crap that isn't sporting news.

This isn't news.  The Vikings are a SuperBowl contender with Favre at the helm.  He proved that last year.  As far as I am concerned Favre can take as much time as he wants to make this decision.  We all should know by now that come the opening game for the Vikings #4 will be on the field leading the Vikings.  The truth is, they have a lot of other concerns to address before Favre.  What if Favre says yes and the Viking brass try to get him to come into training camp?  What if Favre doesn't want to make this choice because if he does it too early, he has to deal with everything that comes with it.  The only thing I never liked about Favre, and still don't is his unwillingness to try and mentor young QB's.  I can't speak for Rodgers, but if he did actually learn from Favre, and the end result is that the Packers have a franchise quarterback because of it--I would be trying to push Favre into helping out the younger quarterbacks in the Vikings system.  By that I mean Webb, and Archer, but who is to say they even make the team.  That might be the real issue here.  They know they can't win a SuperBowl with Jackson or Sage--at least they seem to think that by how they handle Favre.  Those back-ups just can't give the type of guidence someone like Favre could to rookie or younger quarterbacks.

GOPACK!!! I have to comment on the below statement you made...

"The sad thing here is that what if AP, the Williamses, Jared Allen, etc. decided to act like Favre?"

In case the obvious escapes you, Favre's 40+ yrs old. Let me explain life to you in 100 words or less. After 20yrs of football, after 40yrs of age, the body wears down. If AP or JA can't grasp this logic and throw Favre some seniority slack then that's pathetic. However, you ever have listened to an AP or JA interview you'd see they understand life facts just fine and TOTALLY support Favre. It's only you E-Tards that can't grasp this logic. How old is AP? JA? grasping reality yet? prolly now.

Good luck this year Brett. As if he ain't playin' ;o)...plzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
