Having served as the Favres' personal chauffeur, how in the name of Jehovah is the bald, bespectacled one going to tell Favre which play to run, or which receiver to throw to, or to stop improvising and hand the goddamned ball to Adrian Peterson and getthefuckouttatheway?At long last, we're seeing the fruits of those seeds. Last night, the cameras caught a heated exchange between Lord Favre and the Chill during the Vikes stinkbomb vs. the Panthers. The topic? Brett says Chill asked him to come out of the game in the third quarter. I'll go out on a limb and paraphrase the rest of the conversation:
FAVRE: No.This is AWESOME. It took much, much longer than I expected, and I had to endure two Packers losses to get here, but I fucking knew that dipshit couldn't and wouldn't put the team ahead of his own selfish needs for the whole year.
CHILL: But, master, we're down by ...
FAVRE: Brett Favre said 'no.'
CHILL: But ...
CHILL: As you wish.
Sweet Baby Jesus in Heaven, please give us the 'Queens one more time. Please please please.
EDIT: OH, BUT IT GETS BETTER!
This is from ESPN.com's story on the sideline dustup:
It was not the first time that Childress wanted to pull Favre from a game, but found the veteran quarterback not willing to step aside.
Sources tell ESPN that on Oct. 5, during a Monday night game against the Green Bay Packers that drew national attention for Favre's first game against his former team, Childress tried to pull Favre when he was unhappy about a decision the quarterback had made.
The Vikings had a 30-20 lead and were running their four-minute offense. The Packers were out of timeouts, and the Vikings called a run play on 3rd and 10 with 3:27 left. Favre changed the play at the line of scrimmage and took a shot downfield that fell incomplete, stopping the clock.
Childress was furious and told offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell that he was taking Favre out of the game, sources told ESPN. Bevell talked Childress out of it, but news got back to Favre that Childress was going to pull him.
That week, sources said, Favre went into Childress' office and confronted him and Childress backtracked, saying that it was the emotion of the game and the coach didn't want to get too far away from what they were doing offensively.
It's all happening! It's all happening!
