Brett Favre sat down with NFL Network’s Deion Sanders on Friday, and said he hasn’t given much thought to being targeted as quarterback of the Vikings in the 2010 NFC Championship Game against New Orleans, Marc Sessler of NFL.com reports.
“People ask me about it at home, because everyone back home was Saints fans,” Favre told Sanders. “I grew up a Saints fan, an hour from the Superdome.
“My feeling, and I mean this wholeheartedly, is that I really don’t care. What bothers me is we didn’t win the game. And they didn’t take me out of the game. They came close, but a lot of people have come close. I’m too stubborn to come out. Plus, that was kind of a big game. I’m not going to sit the last three minutes. I’m going to go out there with bones sticking out of the skin, I’m going to finish it.”
It doesn’t seem to bother Favre that he was the target of former defensive coordinator Gregg Williams and his troops. Favre — sounding weary — only spoke of falling short of the Super Bowl.
“I’m just upset we didn’t win,” he said again.
