What more is there to write about the Brett Favre saga?
He was always coming back to play. Did you ever doubt it? I don't care what he said about his injured ankle and the other things he used as excuses for not being with the Vikings. He was always going to play, and it was always going to be after two-a-day practices.
The man knows what he's doing.
He's pretty darn calculating for a player who comes across as a good, old country boy.
Favre walks to his own beat, which sounds like this:
Do-Re-Mi -- only without the Do and the Re.
Can he still play? Probably. Does he give the Vikings the best chance to win? Absolutely.
Even with Farve's selfish ways, players can turn a blind eye to all that if they think he can help them win.
Bottom line is that players don't care about contracts, holdouts, off-the-field issues, rape allegations, steroid abuses. All they care about is two things: Money and winning, with money having a good lead.
If Rae Carruth could get out of jail and help a team, they'd welcome him. If Plaxico Burress walked out his cell a free man today, and could help a team, they'd open their arms to him. If O.J. Simpson could still run .... OK, so maybe not that one.
But you get the point.
Favre is no different. He can help the Vikings, which is why his teammates can turn give him a pass for his selfish ways.
What happens if the Vikings don't win it all? He came back last year, they sold their souls, and they didn't win.
Getting to the playoffs and winning a playoff game isn't what this is about. It's about winning a Super Bowl.
Anything less, and it's a failure.
The Vikings are selling their souls for a 40-year-old passer who had his last passes in the playoffs intercepted, ending two team's Super Bowl chances.
So go ahead, Vikings players, coaches, fans and even those media members who slobber over No. 4's every move. Sell your soul.
Just remember you did if there is no ring come next February and he's back on the farm riding that damn tractor.
