Brett Favre says it's time to "re-evaluate"
Brett Favre says there's still hope.
The embarrassing Vikings implosion keeps getting worse after that 31-3 rout at the hands of the Packers.
We have Brett Favre sniping with offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell on the sideline during the game. We have Visanthe Shiancoe over-sharing on Twitter. We have Zygi Wilf stalking out of the locker room.
A down-in-the-mouth Favre said after the game, "I'm just gonna try to go home, as tough as it may be, digest what has happened, not only today but in the last few weeks, come in tomorrow and kind of re-evaluate things," Favre said at his post-game press conference. "There's still some hope."
While Favre was talking, his teammates started tweeting their own thoughts about the loss.
Apologies to the fans for having to witness such an atrocious game.
People talking bad about me doesn't bother me at all. I know I give 110% every time on the field. I can look in the mirror and at my family.
Frustrated right now & there is nothing else left 2 say. Gonna just have dinner wit friends & fam n the meantime.
Well that sucked. Suck suck suck. Just have to do better next week.
What else could go wrong for Favre? There's always Jenn Sterger. ESPN reports that the NFL has embarked on some serious digital forensics work related to the X-rated messages Favre allegedly sent the former Jets sideline host via cell phone. If he's found to have violated league rules, he could be looking at a suspension.
Coach Brad Childress, who surely hears the fat lady warming up her vocal chords when he thinks about his tenure with the team, looked flummoxed when he met with the press.
"There's a lot of soul searching going on," he said. "We need something good to happen to us."
