All the speculation surrounding the Minnesota-Green Bay game today is that it could be Brett Favre's last game in the NFL. There's a belief that if the Vikings lose to the Packers, Favre will limp off into the dusty sunset. (Please note, of course, that you should never, ever, ever-ever-ever assume Favre's gone until papers are filed.)
But No. 4 insists that he's ready to bring it against his old team and, according to ESPN's Ed Werder, Favre has been slinging the ball all week, at some point leaving a dent in wideout Greg Camarillo's helmet with a cannonball of a throw. He's also unconcerned about leaving anything on the field.
"If it comes off, it comes off," Favre said about his arm.
While the idea of the final picture of Brett Favre's career being him shrieking in horror as blood spurts from a dismembered shoulder is a little amusing (in a morbid cartoonish way), it's more than likely that we'll have some sort of image that involves Favre vs. Brad Childress -- Favre told Werder this week that he's still cheesed about the way Chilly handled his presser after the first Packers game.
"It's a damn shame," Favre said " What I think about is going to my press conference knowing he'd taken some shots at me."
Of course, Chilly went to his press conference knowing that Favre has more power in the Vikes' organization than the coach, so, it's kind of hard to blame him, you know?
