Brett Favre Looking For Revenge Against Green Bay

As sure as you can bank on the Oakland Raiders making a mockery of the NFL draft you can also count on the Brett Favre talk dominating the NFL airwaves once again in the weeks following the NFL draft. It’s something that we should be used to by now and yet the majority of the sporting world is scratching their heads and questioning why?

Favre was able to bring life back to the New York Jets but not able to get them into the playoffs and ultimately ended up costing Head Coach Eric Mangini his job. Now Minnesota Vikings coach Brad Childress appears to be the next person to bear that burden. After retiring, again, Favre requested – and was granted – a release from New York and is flirting now with Minnesota.

Brett Favre has enjoyed a hall of fame career but his skills have diminished to the point where a comeback seems improbable. Is it his love for the game that keeps wooing him back? Nope! Perhaps it’s his love of the limelight? Not even close! Turns out Favre’s motivation is hatred. Hatred for a team that was once endeared to him.

According to a New York Daily News source Favre wants to play in the NFC North again so that he can stick it to the Pack.

"Favre can't stand Green Bay," the source said. "He wants to play Green Bay and say, 'I told you so.' His bitterness is creating this. I think he's calling Minnesota. I think Minnesota is talking about this as we speak. You haven't heard the end of Favre. No way. He is bionic. As long as somebody will let him in, he will play."

Oh the drama!
