Is Thompson Still On Vacation?

Is GM Ted Thompson still on vacation? He hasn't said what the team's going to do with Favre and he's left Mike McCarthy unable to answer kids' questions, and team President Mark Murphy can only repeat what Favre said at his retirement press conference.

Tom Pelissero makes an excellent point about the effect Favre's return would have on the team chemistry:

It would be foolish for anyone to say publicly he doesn’t want Favre back, but there is a substantial faction of younger players who are eager to play with Rodgers. Favre is at least a decade older than all but six guys on the roster. He dressed in his own locker room. He had minimal social interaction with teammates. Rodgers is one of the guys, and plenty of them are pulling for him to get his shot.
