The man literally responsible for getting QB Brett Favre to Minnesota today spoke to reporters following the introductory press conference.
The effort to land Favre was collaborative among the front office and Vikings Head Coach Brad Childress, but when the time came to actually get Favre to Minnesota, ownership stepped in.
“My brother, myself and my son went down to Hattiesburg to pick up Brett and his wife,” Wilf said. “We had a great conversation coming up here and realized what a down-to-earth person he was. And we realized more so than ever that he’ll be a great fit for our team.
“We felt the opportunity was now to do it,” Wilf said. “We did not want to go in the future and say ‘What if?’ In speaking to Brett, he felt the same way. I think the fans and everyone should be quite excited about how our team keeps improving. We will do our best to fight for our division and hopefully be that consistent championship-caliber ball club that we hope to become.”
