Brett Favre might have re-evaluated things, but he's not quitting on the Vikings.
Favre said Wednesday that he will play the remainder of the season if he is able to.
"Look, we have six games left. I hope to finish them all. To make that clear, I want to finish on a high note," Favre said.
Favre was despondent after the 31-3 loss to the Packers on Sunday and said he would "re-evaluate things," which led some people to speculate he might end his season early. Two days after Brad Childress was fired and replaced by Leslie Frazier, Favre said he has no plans for that.
"If my body will allow me and I can play up to my expectations, I'm going to do it," Favre said. "After the game, I wasn't implying that I wouldn't do it. I want to get this team back on track. That's my goal."
As for Childress' removal, Favre said he wasn't "surprised or shocked" but added that "ultimately, it falls back on the players, individually, whether you like your coach, get along with him, agree with what is called or not called, you still have to play."
