A Flirting Favre

Favre denies talking to Detroit. Some say he did, some say he didn't. Rumors, in general, blow.
Did Brett Favre -- T.O.'ed at his old team -- give the Lions a helping hand against Green Bay in Week 2?

Ask the dueling NFL insiders.

Fox's Jay Glazer says he did. NBC/Sports Illustrated's Peter King says he didn't.

Said Glazer, on Fox's pregame show Sunday: "Brett Favre called the Detroit Lions, starting off with Matt Millen and then the coaching staff, and gave them a 90-minute dissertation on every single thing that the Green Bay Packers do on offense."

Countered King later: "Favre text-messaged me before he went out to play the Oakland Raiders and said that was 'total BS.'

"He vehemently denied the story. I also spoke to the Lions COO and he said, 'Our coaches are perplexed. There was no coaching of our coaching staff by Brett Favre.' "

Asked about the report by the Associated Press, the Packers had mixed reactions.

Said Charles Woodson: "I know he's been the greatest player around here for a long time, but there's no honor in that."

And Donald Driver, one of Brett's buds: "I'd rather not know what it is and not comment on it."
Who doesn't love double D- Donald Driver?

But here's the bottom line. Let's stop trying to make Brett Favre the news in Green Bay and Wisconsin. He's not. He plays for the Jets now and should be New York news, grace ESPN, and get his kicks from Sports Illustrated and SportsCenter. Text message or no text message, Packer fans are concerned with Aaron Rodgers and our guys.

And another thing: Charles- focus on your job, and you can beat any team regardless of the inside scoop they may or may not be getting.
