Favre noncommittal on next season
NEW ORLEANS--Minnesota Vikings quarterback Brett Favre said after Sunday night's overtime loss in the NFC championship game that he hadn't decided whether he will retire or play next season for the Vikings.
Favre said he will take some time to think about the decision and consult with his family.
Favre played brilliantly all season, being selected to the Pro Bowl and finishing fourth in the NFL most valuable player voting. He had another good performance Sunday, throwing for 310 yards and a touchdown. He returned to the game after suffering an ankle injury in the third quarter.
But he also threw two interceptions, one of them in the final moments of regulation.
Vikings Coach Brad Childress said he was unsure about what Favre will do about next season.
"I told him to go home and lick your wounds," Childress said. "I'll do the same. No one wants to make a rash decision."
Saints safety Darren Sharper, Favre's former teammate with the Green Bay Packers, said he's guessing that Favre will play next season.
"I wanted to tell him after the game he should come back," Sharper said. "I think he should. He probably doesn't want to go out on that, throwing an interception on that last play. He's got 13 million reasons to come back, too."
Said Saints defensive end Will Smith: "You could tell he was hurting. He was barely making it to the huddle. He's 40 years old. But he's still got the arm of a 21-year-old."
