Favre won’t address allegations after loss to Jets
Question of the Day
The Minnesota Vikings quarterback was asked several times after Monday night’s 29-20 loss to the New York Jets to discuss the NFL’s investigation into allegations that he sent racy messages and lewd photos to a Jets game hostess in 2008.
Each time, the three-time MVP did not address the topic. He said he was disappointed his team lost the game and his only focus had been on trying to beat the Jets.
Earlier Monday, he reportedly apologized to his teammates for the distraction caused by the allegations and NFL investigation.
“That’s between me and my teammates, apparently not all of them,” Favre said, a reference to a teammate who might have divulged what was said.
A person with knowledge of the situation told The Associated Press that Favre spoke to his teammates Monday. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to talk publicly about the conversation.
ESPN reported on Favre’s apology.
Asked to comment on the NFL investigation, he said: “I said what I had to say. I’m disappointed we lost this football game.”
“You know what, it’s just no different than any other time,” Favre said of whether the game was tough to get ready for with all that has been going on. “I concentrated on this game, gave it my all, it wasn’t good enough.”
