NFL preseason games have started, but Brett Favre swears he's not interested in playing in one.
"I don't have that feeling, that chip on my shoulder," said Favre, the NFL's all-time leader in numerous passing categories. "I mean, I could easily talk myself into that chip on my shoulder like, 'Hey everybody hates you,' ... I could motivate myself."
But, the 41-year-old quarterback went on to say, motivating himself has become more difficult as he ages.
Favre admitted that his career probably should have ended after what he called a "storybook" 2009 season, when he led the Vikings to the NFC Championship Game with his best statistical performance. But Favre said he believed he owed the team one more year after such a run.
"We made a conscious effort to bring everybody back," Childress said Wednesday. "What did we get for it? I got fired, and (Favre) got hurt. Did I feel like he was as sharp as he could've been? No."
Sharp or not, Favre's return can't be completely ruled out, Childress told NFL Network.
"I believe he's finished playing, bur you know, we're just starting to play these (preseason) games," Childress said. "If somebody gets nicked, someone may have a need, and somebody may be a salesman enough to talk him off the ranch."
