Biggs: Chilly wants Favre to have 'serial-killer mentality'
Jeffrey Dahmer? Ted Bundy? John Wayne Gacy? Henry Lee Lucas?
Surely, Brad Childress certainly didn’t have the minds of actual serial killers in mind on Thursday when he said he wants Brett Favre to have a “serial-killer mentality” when the quarterback meets his former team for the first time on Monday night.
Favre went through a sometimes awkward teleconference with Green Bay media on Thursday, and there is no question this will be an emotional game for Favre at the Metrodome. He’s been through those before, though, starring on Monday night at Oakland after his father passed.
“He's an emotional guy and I'm sure there will be a wave of emotion before the game and then kind of hopefully a cold, kind of a serial-killer mentality when the game starts,’’ Childress said.
Favre, not usually one to be found at a loss for words, had to pause to contemplate that one when told by reporters what the coach had said.
“Serial killer mentality?” Favre said, letting it sink in. “I don't know if I would have put it that way, but I just want to play the way I played last week (against San Francisco). With a few more improvements.
“I don't know how many games I've played in, but this game is no different than the fourth game I played in last year. In reality, this is a Monday night game. Yeah, that's the only game playing and there is more excitement because of that game, but you can't treat it any differently. Trying to keep your emotions in check any time is part of it."
Maybe next time Childress will say he wants his quarterback to be cold blooded. That sounds better.
