Brett Favre extended interview with Ed Werder

The clip runs over 20 minutes, and it provides some insight into Favre’s thinking last summer when he was trying to rejoin the Packers.

I do wish that Werder had asked Favre about the report that he was all set to return in the March of 2008, but as Mike McCarthy and Ted Thompson were set to fly to Mississippi to finalize things, he called it off at the last minute. I think that was the reason that the Packers moved on, but unfortunately it wasn’t addressed in this interview. He never really talks about how his wishy-washiness on the subject of retirement puts the franchise in a tough position summer after summer, though he seems pretty level-headed about Green Bay’s decision to move on.
