Ex-Viking Leber on Favre: He wasn’t really committed to us

Former Vikings linebacker Ben Leber said on KFAN that it’s hard to have a team leader who’s committed more to putting another $20 million or so in his bank account than he is in winning another Super Bowl ring, and that made it hard to have Favre as the starting quarterback.

You know what; I'm gonna stick up for Brett on this.

Leber, what outstanding thing did you do during the 2009 season? Favre on the other hand, played his guts out for the team. He took the worst beating of his life in the NFC Championship Game. I'll tell you what, you take the beating he took, on your last game of the season and lets see what kinda mood you're in when the next season comes around?

Who the hell are you anyway? I have never heard your name until this story.

I think Favre's recent interview with Deion Sanders sparked Leber's asinine comments.

"First of all, the money was too good," Favre said in an interview with Deion Sanders for the NFL Network transcribed by the Minneapolis Star Tribune. "The money was too good. And I hate to say it's about money. I felt the money was a lot. But the guys, I kind of felt like even though I knew it was going to be next to impossible (to duplicate the 2009 success) - I wouldn't tell them (that). Sidney (Rice), Jared (Allen), (Steve) Hutchinson and Adrian (Peterson), they were like, 'Unfinished business.' I just knew that it probably was finished."

Well, they're not exactly perennial NFC Championship contenders, are they? But they shouldn't fret, I'm sure Christian Ponder will turn things around in no time!!!
