Minnesota Vikings head coach Brad Childress wanted to give Brett Favre a rest in Sunday’s 26-7 loss to the Carolina Panthers, but the future Hall of Famer insisted he stay in the game, forever.

“I don’t know if he was trying to protect me or that we only had seven points, or what,” Favre said of Brad Childress’ decision to sit him. “But I said ‘I’m staying in the game. I’m playing. Forever. Ya dig?’ Brett Favre. What.”

Childress downplayed the exchange and characterized the discussion as a “back and forth” fueled by Favre’s unwillingness to acknowledge him as the head coach.
