Favre thinks snitches best be quittin'

Okay, Brett Favre is actually upset about "leaks" and not "snitches" but the point remain the same: the one guy who uses the media more than any human being on the planet to a) fight his personal war and b) saturate his yearning for attention is now complaining that members of his own team are leaking information about he and his coach not getting along.

So Favre held a couple of closed door meetings. And then he talked about them with Ed Werder. (Excuse me while I have my palm surgically removed from my forehead.)

"If something is being said in here -- by whoever, it's got to stop," Favre told Werder. "It's hard enough to win as it is. Success does crazy things. So we had a good meeting.

But don't worry -- whoever is snitching about Childress and Favre is really only making the team better. Provided things play out like the last time someone leaked information about Childress and Favre not enjoying each other.

"That article, like the schism thing, brought us together last year," Fave said. "It really did because it wasn't true. I don't know if someone out there is planting seeds or what but we wanted to nip it in the bud."

Ignoring for a moment the sheer inanity of Favre telling the press about a closed door meeting that he held less than a week after returning to the team because he got mad at a teammate because they talked to the press, it's worth noting that, according to PFT's Mike Florio , some folks think that the leak is Sage Rosenfels.

It is a logical choice, considering that Rosenfels likely hates his life more than when he was doing his helicopter impersonation in Houston -- at least there he had an opportunity to take snaps if Matt Schaub went down. Now, he's stuck as the third string (or second, depending on whether or not ESPN needs to manufacture news about Favre retiring to get him attention) on a football team that's in Minnesota.

Logically then (also helpful, via Florio's investigative work: Coles has covered/interviewed Rosenfels closely for a few years now), his leakiness is designed to eventually get him off the Vikings roster. But if that's true, and if I were him, I wouldn't even bother being anonymous.
