Brett Favre says he may have the flu, wants to get Vikings back on track
Brett Favre's weekly press conference, ahead of the Vikings' game Sunday against the Redskins, is underway in Minnesota and the Vikings quarterback, his voice hoarse, said he may have the flu.
"We have six games left, I hope to finish them all. I hope to finish on a high note."
"I want to get this team back on track. That's my goal."
"I'm trying to figure out what I can do or what I haven't done."
Interestingly, he said he'd like to use less of the playbook: "Every playbook is too thick."
A 500-page playbook is too thick; players don't practice the plays and, Favre says, "you could hide a couple hundred-dollar bills in there ..."
"There's a reason I got to this 20-year point and that's passion and competitive instinct. That will not change."
