Favre Tells Longtime Friend Steve Mariucci He’s Going to Continue to Work Out and Throw

Yes, Brett Favre says he’s staying retired.


After making what some seem to think was a stunning announcement Tuesday, saying that he was too mentally and physically drained to try and comeback with the Vikings, the news on a possible Favre return is not dead just yet.

The latest on Favre comes from Scott Hanson at NFL Network, who has been in Mississippi forever covering the Favre saga. Hanson says that Favre late Tuesday afternoon spoke to former 49ers and Lions coach Steve Mariucci.

The “Mooch” told Hanson that Favre told him that despite telling the Vikings of his decision, he is going to continue to work out AND throw.

Then Mariucci asked Favre how he’s going to feel in the morning about the decision, and reportedly Favre said HE doesn’t know how he’ll feel in the morning.

Oh boy, sounds ONCE AGAIN like Favre doesn’t know what he wants. And wouldn’t that just be the way the last few seasons has gone for a guy that seems to flip flop more than a fish out of water.

    I like Favre, would love to see him play again and at the same time, I’m glad that he finally made his decision. But, if Favre were to change his mind again (for the umpteenth time) and come back after making his retirement announcement to Childress today, it would be a HARD “pimp slap” to the face of the Vikings. I believe those players, especially the QBs, wouldn’t totally trust nor know what to expect from their franchise if they allowed Favre to play there after all of this. Plus, I just dropped Favre from my fantasy team so I prefer that Favre stay retired. I wouldn’t like it much if he ended up playing for the Vikes and another manager in my fantasy league scoops him up from the waiver wire. LOL! Thanks for the article. I saw that same report on NFL network. 🙂
