Favre Didn't Come Off Too Well Tonight

I'm not going to comment too much on the Favre interview with Greta Van Susteren (who knew?), but I thought Favre really came off as childish. Especially during the part where he backtracked on what he said in his press conference about being pushed out, and when he criticized the Packers for telling him to come and backup Rodgers. On a side, I thought it was hilarious she spurned ESPN for Fox News, after ESPN has devoted it's summer to Favre. Other than that, watching this interview was kind of disturbing.

Favre made a mistake by retiring, and he admits that by saying he was "guilty of retiring early". He also says, "(The Packers) moving on does not bother me. It doesn't. I totally understand that. By me retiring March 3rd I knew that could possibly happen. All I was saying is you know I'm thinking about playing again. The 'itch' has been used. That is the word that has been used if you want to say itch, or the fire is coming back, or whatever. If I'm going to play it's going to be 100% commitment.... And so if you move on, you tell me one thing, don't come back and tell the public,... just say it. 'You know, we've moved on and we'll work with Brett on whatever it is.' Don't make up a lot of stuff or give half of the truth."

Call it a poker game if you want, but if that's the case, the Packers need to keep calling Favre's bluff until he gets tired of the spotlight.

Like that will ever happen...

(We'll try to get video posted to this story as soon as possible)
