I would hate to be Taravis Jackson, hell even Sage Rosenfels has to be like:
While the rest of the Vikings are our practicing in the heat a few of their teammates took a little trip to Mississippi:
Three prominent Minnesota Vikings players were missing from practice Tuesday, reportedly because they traveled to quarterback Brett Favre’s home in Mississippi in an effort to convince the quarterback to return for a 20th season.
Guard Steve Hutchinson, defensive end Jared Allen and place-kicker Ryan Longwell — three of Favre’s closest confidants on the team last season — were not at a practice scheduled to begin at 12:45 p.m. ET.
The Star Tribune reported the three players were not present for team meetings Tuesday morning and were in fact in Hattiesburg, Miss.
If I could be frank for a minute.
This is pathetic, truly and utterly pathetic.
Memo to the Vikings, Favre already knows if he is coming back. No matter what you say or what you do is going to change that. Now matter how many flowers or Wranglers you send him it doesn’t matter. You are wasting valuable time and money sending three key players to basically kiss his feet.
He loves the attention, but it is unnecessary and the Football Gods are watching.
I don’t speak in absolutes but I am 99.8% sure the Football Gods are not going to allow Favre to win a Super Bowl because of the way he is playing with people emotions.
They might as well name Favre the coach.
