As the Minnesota Vikings get ready to head to New Orleans for Sunday's NFC Championship, quarterback Brett Favre said his thoughts have been on next month's Super Bowl.
Favre said that could be his last chance to win another Super Bowl ring. Favre won the NFL's biggest game back in 1997, when he played for the Green Bay Packers. Before Wedneday's practice, Favre reflected on his career and coming out of retirement.
"I came back for the opportunity [of] getting back to the Super Bowl, no doubt about it," Favre said. "But you know, I really don't feel like there's anything left to prove.
"I was a pretty good player at one time; I played in a big game before. I actually was fortunate enough to win one. Unfortunately we lost one. But I don't know many guys left in this league that were in those games."
Defensive end Jared Allen said there are advantages to having a 19-year-veteran on the field.
"It's great. He's obviously been around in a lot of situations, so that always helps to have an experienced guy under center being able to make the plays, in a situation to where," Allen said. "He's not going to get rattled and you can see the past of how he's handled those situations."
Favre and the Vikings take on the New Orleans Saints Sunday evening. The winner will play in the Super Bowl on February 7.
