Minnesota Vikings Brett Favre was thinking to go on with his football Career. With so many people are waiting for his decision.It is hard for him to make a decision now. As he is old to play football. We are not sure how longer he will go on with this game, but the real thing he wants is very likely to be more money. He loves his Minnesota Vikings jerseys too. So that we know he will contune on playing his game,as there are two reasons below.
First,Vikings need him to lead the team
While the Minnesota Vikings said that they had enough patience to wait for Favre’s decision, their patience was actually used for the negotiation on contract modifying. Leading the Vikings to the playoffs last season, Favre proved what he could still do at age 40 and wanted the team to reconsider the original contract terms they signed during the 2009 offseason. However, as we know, heavy investment on an over-aged quarterback is extremely risky and both the quarterback and the team needs long enough time to reach something that is for both sides’ most possible benefits.
What’s odd here is that the Vikings still have two other quarterbacks available for a starting role even if the No. 4 Brett Favre jersey is not to be with the team for the 2010 season, but they still focus on Favre only. If the team really thinks Favre the best starting quarterback they could have, why are they hesitating to make more generous offer? Well, that’s the team’s logic to give less than they could afford unless they lose their advantages.
Second, Favre may want to win a Super Bowl before retirement
To our average people, turning forty year old could simply mean a prime time of our life, but to an NFL player, turning 40 year old is terrible and means that it’s time for you to quit from the stage and make up a new plan for a different life. However, Minnesota Vikings quarterback Favre wants to break that rule by winning a Super Bowl at 40.
During his nineteen years of NFL career with four different teams, Favre had managed to earn a lot of titles and honors, including eleven Pro Bowl selections, three First-team All-Pro selections, three second-team All-Pro selections, three AP NFL MVP titles, five NFC Player of the Year titles, two NFC champion titles and one Super Bowl champion title. He was also selected to the 1990s All-Decade team. However, it seems that Favre wants to retire with historical glory by winning a Super Bowl champion title again in his last NFL season. With that plan in mind, he did plan to retire after finishing the 2007 season with the Green Bay Packers as long as he and his team made it to Super Bowl.
Unfortunately, Favre and Packers was beaten by the New York Giants overtime in competition for NFC Championship. Before Favre made his own decision on whether carry out his retiring plan, the Packers traded him away to the New York Jets. On that point, it was actually the Packers betrayed Favre first before the quarterback betrayed Packers fans to put on Minnesota Vikings jerseys in 2009 offseason and beat his old team twice during the regular season.
