Brett Favre started 297 consecutive regular season starts. From 1992 to 2010 Brett Favre never missed a start. He played through a broken thumb on his throwing hand to bone spurs in his ankle. Essentially, he is known as a “tough guy” in NFL and there is no way he’s going to let the public known that people targeting him was unacceptable. That would go against everything he did for his entire career.
Last week, Brett Favre joined other NFL Legends in Chicago for an EA Sport Madden 13 Launch party and interviews with him will be featured on NFL Network all week.
Of course, one topic of conversation was “How did you feel about the Saints having a bounty on you?” Brett Favre’s classic response, “I DON’T CARE. I’M TOO TOUGH TO CARE.” Okay, that wasn’t his exact quotes, you can find those below:
“My feeling, and I mean this wholeheartedly, is I really don’t care,” Favre said. “What bothers me is we didn’t win the game. They didn’t take me out of the game. They came close, but a lot of people have come close. I’m too stubborn to come out. Plus, that was kind of a big game. I’m not going to sit the last three minutes. I’m going to go out there with bone sticking out of my skin and I’m going to finish it. I’m just upset we didn’t win.”
So essentially the $35,000 bounty on Brett Favre is irrelevant since Favre was never knocked out of the game.
But hey, this is Brett Favre just being his good ol’ iron man self. Gotta love him!
