More Brett Favre Thread

Are the odds increasing that QB Brett Favre returns to the NFC North? The current rumor is that he's been calling his buddies on the Vikings' coaching staff and trash talking:

Just saw an interesting, but not surprising, Brett Favre-related item that appeared in the New York Daily News and was picked up by ProFootballTalk.com. Gary Myers of the Daily News talked to a unnamed NFL source, who said: "Favre can’t stand Green Bay. He wants to play Green Bay and say, ‘I told you so.’ His bitterness is creating this. I think he’s calling Minnesota. I think Minnesota is talking about this as we speak. You haven’t heard the end of Favre. No way. He is bionic. As long as somebody will let him in, he will play."

I don't have opinion whether he would be an upgrade over QB Sage Rosenfels. Obviously he's head for the Hall of Fame and Rosenfels isn't, but one season of Favre, age 40, is probably not much better than one season of Rosenfels.

If Vikings' head coach Brad Childress isn't on the hot seat, he should be. That might make Favre in Minnesota even more likely; Childress' needs to throw a Hail Mary to save his job. Still, Vikings' fans still don't seem all that excited about signing him.
