He left before he ever arrived, but it doesn’t mean he’s never coming.
Amid mounting evidence that Brett Favre is interested in playing football if he can find a way to shorten the season as it applies to him, there are some in the Vikings organization who are convinced that Favre will attempt to join the team after the first two weeks of training camp.
And that coach Brad Childress will welcome him with open arms.
This conflicts with the notion, as Tom Curran reported yesterday, that the Vikings have closed the door on Favre. But the reaction of the team in the immediate wake of Favre’s announcement and its atttiude after 14 days of bounce passes and pickoffs could be very different.
So, basically, he isn’t going away quietly, and he simply isn’t going away.
