    From Peter King's MMQB:

    Vicodin case hangs over Sean Payton, New Orleans Saints - Peter King - SI.com

    ESPN should really open an office in Kilne, MS. It would make it easier and more cost effective than flying a crew down there every year. It should be about two weeks before we hear it is 100% certain he will play again followed by the inevitable retirement reports again.

    The most annoying thing every NFL season. I know its cruel, but you almost want to see a career-ending injury so he can finally leave the game.

    He's been playing in the NFL one year before I was born, it's nuts....

    Re: OT:The Brett Favre Retirement Tango Begins Again

    I've decided I have no problem with Favre playing until the day he dies...

    Just please, for the love of all that is holy, STOP acting so emotional at the end of every season. We all know you're going to come back. You look like a buffoon.

    He's like that girl we all know who breaks up with her boyfriend every other month and spends a week in the bathroom crying and burning their vacation pictures. Don't worry sweetie, you'll be back together and "talking about getting married" by the weekend.

    Every year at this time, I pray he gets hit by a bus, just so we don't have to listen to the media slather their saliva all over his balls for another preseason.

    God, I really hate Favre now.

    Favre is playing in 2010. He is no more serious about leaving than he has been the last 5 years when he never was actually serious about walking away.

    He has 2 goals - get his name in the headlines as much as he can and find an excuse he can use to skip training camp. This ankle injury accomplishes both of those.

    God, how I dislike this yearly Favrewatch. Why can't he just make a desicion and stick with it, for once in his life?

    To give him credit, though, Peter King seems about ready to wash his hands of the whole thing. Any other year this story would have been King's headline. He's finally wised up that Favre uses him.

    I hope Favre comes back and plays. The game is more fun to watch with him in it and it would really add some spice to our meeting with the Vikings this year. However, I too hate his constant waffling. People who cannot make up their mind get under my skin like there's no tomorrow.

    But Favre doesn't actually waffle at all. He pretends to waffle to get his name in headlines. He's not indecisive at all, he is just a media whore.

    If there wasn't this ridiculous drama, I would happily see him return. He actually seems to love playing the game, and still throws blocks on runs at his age. He has always had more guts and ability than desire to practice and prepare, so I would not say he is phoning in his preseason any more or less than he previously has done.

    Unfortunately, much of this mess is media driven by virtue of questions asked that he has no intention of answering. Responses like "still thinking," "not sure," etc. only feed the media speculation resulting in the dance over the past few years.

    They can take it the first year for free but the second year is going to cost him dearly...

    3 goals - make 12 million an yr. which to me the biggest motivating factor which the media never points out. he wont play for any less and even asked the jets for raise when they traded for him

    Re: OT:The Brett Favre Retirement Tango Begins Again

    I know it may sound cruel to some, but I've been thinking the same thing for a couple years now. Unless he's dead or in a wheelchair, we'll have to put up with this crap for another offseason. Even if he DOES make a decision, we all know now it won't mean a damn thing anyway.

    It wouldn't be so bad if the media didn't slobber over him so much. You'd think his last name was Manning.

    The thing is, the ol' hillbilly brought this on himself by doing this "Will I or won't I?" dance every year since, what, 2003? But while he brought it on himself, it's the rest of us who have to suffer for it.

    Favre is going to play until his body finally fails him.

    It benifits all parties involved for Favre to publicly waffle over his future. Favre gets to miss as much camp time as possible. The Vikings get to try to play up the strategic advantage of making opponents think QB undecided. The sports media gets their big draw story. Why announce a return before August?

    I bet Favre returns and Childress knows it.

    Tavaris Jackson is currentlly #1 on the Vikings' depth chart. Unless something changes on that, we know without a doubt that Fav-re is coming back.

    You do realize that last year was statistically the best year of his career, right?

    This.....good comment. Its too bad that Peter King and the sports media in general finally realize that this drama queen thrives on all the attention. Well maybe not all of the media...there might be some johnny come lately's still hanging around Brets locker acting like a bunch of boot licking sycophants..but eventually they will start to realize that they have been used by Brett to keep his already over inflated ego going. Frankly...the act is getting just a little old.:bricks:

    Don't blame Favre, blame those who choose to talk about this thus making it a story.

    I agree that it's partly the medias fault, but I also do not totally hold Favre totally blameless either, because he's playing to his audience which in this case is the sport's media.

    Favre's contract should read: "Exempt from appearing from OTAs and Training Camp. Must show for Sundays in the Fall".

    The Vikings have gambled big -- by not picking a quarterback in the draft. Of course, Denver might have robbed them of Tebow by trading ahead of them. And McCoy is not a cold-weather quarterback. Still, they passed on Claussen....

    Oddly enough that's probably already written into his contract.
