I had my doubts on whether or not Brett Favre would be back for another round of hits this year. He ended the season with a game that had him on the ground more than he had been all year. But having reading that Brad Childress is giving him a lot of latitude with his decision, I think he will. One thing in particular caught my eye, and that was Childress’ admission that he’d “be willing to give Favre plenty of time to reach a decision and may even excuse him from offseason activities and possibly training camp.”
We know how badly Favre hates training camp, and let’s face it, it doesn’t really seem like he needs it. He played great, right up until the end. Childress seems to have a lot more respect for Favre than the management of the Packers did. He said that Favre, “earned that latitude” in regard to giving him time to decide and not forcing him to jump throw hoops. Twenty years in the NFL should do that. Hopefully Favre will make a decision he feels comfortable about now that he has the support he needs.
