JERRY ON BRETT -- Hall of Fame WR Jerry Rice is on the record as not being behind Brett Favre's return to play for the Minnesota Vikings.
"(This) could really backfire," Rice told Chip Scoggins of the Minneapolis Star Tribune.
Rice pointed out that, if Favre is not healthy or ineffective, the Vikings will have a real problem on their hands.
"You have to look at the scenario that happened in New York," Rice said. "If he pretty much distances himself completely from the players, then all of a sudden you're going to divide the players because a lot of the players are going to say, 'Hey, Tarvaris Jackson should be in here or Sage (Rosenfels).' You don't want this to divide the team."
