Word from Minnesota is that Favre has officially told Brad Childress that he will not be coming out of retirement to play for the Vikes. This is good. While I am plenty frustrated with him for his behavior recently and his flirtation with the Vikes, it’s good that he’s not going to play for them. Though many (apparently including Favre) weren’t so sure he could bring it this year wearing purple, I thought he could have made that team better.
As Trav indicated though, I wouldn’t be surprised to hear his name surface the second Sage or Tarvaris or both start blowing games. For now though, I’m pleased to be able to put this to rest right before camp so that we can focus in on the Packers, the NFC North and the NFL.
