Packersnut21 makes a good point. On ESPN's Pardon The Interruption this afternnon, Tony Kornheiser and Mike Wilbon were discussing a similar scenario of this happening on the first weekend of November. The Vikings have a bye that week, and after playing 3 tough clubs in a row in October, and IF the Vikings are not playing good football by the time of the bye week, this scenario could happen.

When I first heard it, I kind of dismissed it. But after thinking on this, it's a possibility. Favre apparently came out and said some time ago that he couldn't last an entire season. In this case he wouldn't have to play an entire season, just half of one. One thing about it though, Favre BETTER be in football shape.

he is NOT officially retired, he even said the following in SI:

Even he knows his gut feeling can't be trusted right now.
"Very unlikely,'' he said. "I really believe this is it. I truly, truly believe it's over. But if someone calls Nov. 1, who knows?''

You forgot the rest of the story.

They( PTI) were interviewing Jared Allen , a Viking who had contact urging Favre to come, and he pretty much said once the training camp starts, the players there are his team mates and the saga about Favre is over.

He directly said he would not be in favor of Favre showing up in November.

That's what he says now, but I think he might sing a different tune if they are 5-4 and Favre could take them over the hump. To me I just can't get passed the whole he is going to keep throwing comments.

Appreciate the correction marmac! I had a phone call halfway through the program and missed the interview and the rest of the program. That little comment by Wilbon came on their 3rd comment.

They repeat again on ESPN 2 but I didn't think anything of watching it. Appreciate the input.

Opinion: I think he's done. Tavaris has potential. I realize potential isn't worth much unless it's realized, but I think he can do the job. Rosenfeld will push him, though. But if BOTH quarterbacks are struggling, or one of them gets dinged up, well....

A few weeks after that bye week, they run into some tough matchups; at Arizona, at Carolina, at Chicago, home against the Giants. The one game they should take there is Cincinatti. We'll see how it shakes out.

TJack is a physically skilled player, but one has to remember he did not play in a pro style offense in college, so it will take him a while to learn the system.

Favre would make a good dairy farmer.

He "milked" every last drop of publicity he could get out of his retirement saga.

Then just when we think it's over, he says he might come back in November.

TJ is hurt, here comes the cavalry...aka Brett the savior. This guy is gonna ride in on his white stallion and save the day. Or at least thats the way it will be portrayed. Im just glad Madden is retired or we would really never hear the end of it.
