Brett Favre Talks Like This Is His Last Game. Kinda.

All due credit, Brett Favre played tonight when he had no real reason to. The Vikings are out of playoff contention, the elements were going to be unkind to someone in Favre’s condition and his consecutive starts streak is already over. We may be sick and tired of hearing announcers tell us how durable and tough-willed Favre is, but there is truth to it.

When he knocked out of Monday night’s game with a head injury, the writing was already on the wall. It’s already a foregone conclusion this is his final season ( we think). So could this have been the final play of his career?

After his post-game press conference, its become abundantly clear that Brett Favre has thrown his last NFL pass (and touchdown…and interception). At least, we think it was clear.

“My last pass was just as fun as my first.”

As finite as that sounds, Favre was sure to caveat things by throwing in “if this was my last game.” Of course he had to throw that in. And finally, Brett returned to the center, trying not to sound like he was leaning one way or the other:

“Based on my decision making I probably shouldn’t tell you one way or the other right now.”

Oh Brett, but you’ve already told us so much.

If there’s anything Brett Favre does well, it’s keep everyone guessing when he’s finally going to stop slingin’ those guns. And even when he does…we’ll keep waiting for him to do it all over again.
