When Brett speaks, people still listen

Brett Favre said he didn't care about the Saints' Bountygate in an interview with Deion Sanders.

Brett Favre’s always been quotable. That’s why when asked who’s better – Robert Griffin III or Andrew Luck – Favre wasn’t afraid to sound off … and when he does everyone listens.

And in addition to providing his opinion about which of the two top NFL Draft picks was best, Favre also talked a bit with Deion Sanders about the New Orleans Saints, Bountygate, and how it all applied to him.

Yesterday the former Packer, Jet and Vikings great gave his short answers on the two topics – RG3 and he didn’t care, respectively.

“Griffin, he’s smaller, but if I was starting a team, I’d probably of went with RG3 just because, if they can’t protect you, you got to protect yourself,” Favre told NFL Network in an interview with Deion Sanders.

And as for the Saints and the off-season suspensions that resulted from Bountygate, Favre said he simply didn’t care. What bothered him most was the fact that the Vikings didn’t win the championship game. He told Deion that the important thing was that the Saints tried to take him out of the game, but failed. He also said that there had been plenty of other teams that had attempted to take him out and also failed.

“My feeling, and I mean this wholeheartedly, I really don’t care … 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 have come out, plus that was kind of a big game …”

More from the interview is being prepared to be broadcast next week as part of the network’s All Access program.
