Jay Glazer is reporting that Brett Favre is on his way back to the Vikings.
This comes to no surprise as the annual Brett Favre saga is now a common thing. However, this does add a little interest to the 49ers’ preseason game against the Vikings this Sunday at Candlestick Park.
In what was already scheduled as a nationally televised game this Sunday, now it could be infested with media looking for Favre. Even though a preseason game is really meaningless, this game will have a major atmosphere.
The last time the 49ers faced against Favre and the Vikings, it didn’t end well. Now if Favre is truly coming back, the 49ers will once again be a victim of the Favre-circus that follows him.
I want to say that I am surprised that all this is unfolding. But I’m not. Sadly, the 49ers will be stuck in the middle of it all.
