Uneasiness in Vikings camp over Favre's future

Though pretty much everyone inside and outside of the Vikings’ organization believes that quarterback Brett Favre will return for another season at the age of 40 going on 41, we’re hearing that Favre’s status is creating some uneasiness at training camp.

Last year, the official word in the early days of two-a-days was that Favre wasn’t playing again.  Though coach Brad Childress apparently knew otherwise, he apparently kept it mainly to himself.

This year, the presumption is that Favre will come.  Until he does, however, anything can happen.  And that’s making folks inside the building anxious to get the issue resolved and move on, one way or the other.

Meanwhile, Judd Zulgad of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune has advised us that Favre technically is a holdout.  Under contract for 2010, Favre was placed on the reserve/did not report list, in order to allow his roster spot to be used on another player.

Maybe he’s simply hoping for more money.  After all, it’s an uncapped year.

    This whole thing gets more pathetic every year.

  2. TheRedBengal says: Aug 2, 2010 9:18 PM

    That would be the shocker of the 21st century if he doesn’t come back. Not to mention sinking the Vikings’ ship for the year…
    BUT he’ll be back

  3. packfan4ever says: Aug 2, 2010 9:18 PM

    Doesn’t matter who their QB is. They are a 10-6 team at best.

  4. ICEWALKER says: Aug 2, 2010 9:18 PM

    Vikings fans, calm down. He’ll be back.
    He hasn’t missed a game. Why would he quit if he’s never missed a game. The way he played, and the way the team has played with and for him has to make fans happy and proud.
    But if you want to help the economy, stick a lump of coal up your butt and when he finally comes back you’ll all have a big ol’ diamond!
    So glad I don’t have to worry about his antics anymore.

    Okay, NOW you’re just making stuff up.

  7. Vikingsfan7 says: Aug 2, 2010 9:26 PM

    Florio, you honestly are a pathetic writer. Can you please tell us WHO is uneasy about Favre not returning. I think half the people that visit this site can become a better writer/analyst then you.

  8. JimmySmith says: Aug 2, 2010 9:27 PM

    One look at T Jack Off and Rosencopter and I can see why they are uneasy but the truth be told, the Vikings would be far better off if Favre retired today. That way, if they did make it to the playoffs, #4 can’t throw the whole season down the drain with one his patented playoff INT’s .
    I have no idea of who is their long term answer at QB but hey, if they can go into the season without the long term answer at head coach, what’s the big deal about not knowing the QB question?
    By the time they make it to LA, they will have figured it out.

  9. MrHumble says: Aug 2, 2010 9:29 PM

    I’m sure the cheeseheads will have fun with this post,

  10. Phillyfanatic says: Aug 2, 2010 9:29 PM

    I never post on here, but I saved my very first post to say that this is a bunch of crap. Everybody in the entire Viking building knows Favre is coming back.

    Favre is a first ballot HOF player.I enjoy watching him play.I think he’s good for the game.The diva treatment and indecision to play or retire has no place in this game.Man up Favre and stick it out with your teammates.

    florio, isn’t there enough real news now from real sources that you can cut and paste, do you really need to post about imaginary “uneasiness” about favre coming back to generate clicks? especially since you said a couple days ago that you’d have to be brain dead not to realize he’s coming back?
    why don’t you cut and paste some real news like the packers starting lolb being injured and their starting safety being injured?

    Florio,
    Sometimes I think you write these stories just to get ripped on by every pissed-off internet tough guy. Or you just like seeing a lot of sore Packer fans and other assholes from the other 31 teams rip on Favre, even though he’s made the game a more entertaining sport to watch for the last 18 years. Just sayin…

  24. GBfanForever says: Aug 2, 2010 9:44 PM

    While it is fun watching that dysfunctional organization lay in the bed it’s made I really would be disappointed if he didn’t come back and give packer nation a chance to see Rodgers pwn him at Lambeau this fall.

  25. Gravy Makes Sconnies Fat says: Aug 2, 2010 9:45 PM

    favre is still not coming back till camp breaks from mankato.
    ted thompson is still gay.
    woohoo

  26. j-wil says: Aug 2, 2010 9:45 PM

    hilarious! funny how the vikes/fans are in a tizzy over favrah……….. meanwhile Aaron Rodgers is quitely going about his business becomming the best qb in the league………………..enjoy another gut wrenching year viking fans, you deserve it!

    LOL…packfan4 (along with a couple of thousand other packer fans) have been making this statement for 3 years now…….sounds like the “boy who cried wolf”….people give it no cred but we certainly have fun making them eat crow after the past 2 and soon to be 3 years….and then it will start all over again NEXT year, count on it! Think about pack fans, you said it in 2008 when someone like “TJak” led them to the division title, you said it last year about “you couldn’t wait to bury BF”….funny, but it was BF who buried the pack….TWICE. It would be nice to have BF back but it doesn’t really matter, the vikes clearly have better personnel and will win the division again this year regardless of who plays qb.

  29. p ditty says: Aug 2, 2010 9:52 PM

    After being in Green Bay the last few days I am so awed at that place. It is the greatest fan experience in sports. Even a practice draws huge crowds, majority of the players actually mingle with the kids in attendance and even ride the kids bikes to and from the practice field. I got high fives from Pro Bowlers, veterans and rookies.
    If Minnesota is not looking to Green Bay for facility ideas they are stupid. Of course after building a small college football stadium and not including the pro team in planning might be the most short sighted thing I have ever seen.
    Regarding the topic of the thread…he is not GB’s problem anymore. NFL Network replayed the NFC Championship Game this weekend. That was one of the worst passes in the history of professional football!

  30. Sacram3ntal says: Aug 2, 2010 9:55 PM

    Too funny.
    Everyone in the Vikings org swore they couldnt care less when Favre showed up, they were just sooo grateful to have him.
    Now that camp has actually started, they are starting to realize just how weird it is for their star QB to be playing hooky.
    (I’m reading, though, that Tarvaris and Sage are sucking hard wind so far- that’s probably ratcheting up the anxiety as much as anything.)

  31. dybzinski says: Aug 2, 2010 9:57 PM

    “Maybe he’s simply hoping for more money.”
    How about they just pay him a nickel for every time Florio and other media types with no sense of journalism write the same thing over and over.
    Only in an uncapped year could it work!

  32. SpartaChris says: Aug 2, 2010 10:00 PM

    OK, now that I’ve stopped laughing…
    While the lack of a quote or credible source for the story certainly gives rise to those accusing Florio of merely fabricating the story in order to garner hits, the flip side is would you really expect someone from the organization to come forward and say, “Yeah, admittedly we’re a little nervous because the guy’s given us no indication as to whether he’s going to return or not.”
    Frankly, a comment like that, especially if it came from management, doesn’t really do much to inspire confidence in the rest of your team.
    The fact of the matter is Favre *is* holding out. For what, who knows, but there’s absolutely no good reason for him not to be at training camp. He’s able to lob balls with the high school team, so why not his pro team? He can be put on a pitch count if he’s worried about his arm. He can rehab at the facilities if the ankle’s bugging him. There’s just no good reason for him not to be in camp with his team, yet he maintains he’s still not sure whether he’ll be playing or not.
    While I’m certain he’ll be back in Barney colors this year, what legitimate reason is there for him to be missing camp?

  33. HawgNSonsTV2 says: Aug 2, 2010 10:00 PM

    Funny….if that “dysfunctional organization” won the division title the past 2 years, just think what it would do if it were functional. The last part of GBfanForever’s statement is the absolute most hilarious but unfortunately it is “deja vu”…..we heard it last year when BF signed with the Vikings….but it was the gunslinger who pounded Erin and the Pack, in Minny and AT LAMBEAU!
    Another packer fan who “cries wolf”….too damn funny!

  36. tradebait9 says: Aug 2, 2010 10:08 PM

    Hey BOBNELSON……..How did that schism, holdout and Childress discipline work out for the Packers against the Vikings last year??? Why don’t you worry about how to beat Tampa Bay let alone the Vikings. Even with Jackson at QB, your girl Aaron could only split the series 2 years ago.

  37. BigEasy says: Aug 2, 2010 10:10 PM

    LOL…………SKOL!!!!
    C’mon Florio according to PFT he his riding his bike 8miles a day and throwing to High School WR’s…..If that doesn’t say I don’t need training camp…I don’t know what does.
    Why would Favre leave the farm when Rachel Nichols is holding his nuts while everyone spits out crap articles…..attention whore….and he blows up at the best times…Saints fans and Packer fans can’t wait for his return.

    I’m sure T-Jack and Rosenfels just love trying to prepare for the season not knowing if they’re the backups or the starter.
    Kind of hard to take practice seriously when you know you’re relegated to carrying the clipboard another year, especially since Rosenfels was “promised” the chance to compete last year by Chilly…

  40. numberfour says: Aug 2, 2010 10:16 PM

    that was one of the worst UNPRESSURED passes in pro football history.

  41. alphamail says: Aug 2, 2010 10:19 PM

    Viking fans, remain calm. He’ll be there. Anyway you have a good team with or without him….better team with him of course.
    One thing I’m not buying is the claim by fellow Packer fans that he won’t repeat last year’s performance. Maybe not exactly, but the Vikes have such a loaded team (besides QB where they need Favre) that I think he’ll do a comparable job to 2009. I’d be more worried about AP and EJ.

  42. Franchise says: Aug 2, 2010 10:22 PM

    Over 2 weeks before the famous “Ride on 494″ with Chilly and Favre, 2 days before Jay Glazer reported Favre would be in purple, I was on The Score 690 in Minneapolis and reported it.
    3 sources, a player, a front office official, and a former player still close to the team stated that the deal was done, and that everyone in the organization knew it.
    That said, everyone I have talked to at camp, players, trainers, etc, etc, have stated the same thing.
    I know Judd, and I know its his job to stir the pot, just as it is Florio’s.
    Like I’ve stated before, if the Vikings doubted Favre’s return, more than the drafting of Joe Webb would have been done in the off season. There would have been a play for McNabb, or a FA signing, or even drafting a QB a bit higher. None were done for a reason.
    See you in New Orleans Brett.

  43. Ilovefoolsball says: Aug 2, 2010 10:25 PM

    Why are they uneasy? I’ve been saying it for months already, LISTEN!!!! :
    Lord Favre will grace the rest of the peasant viking team when he deems them worthy to be graced by his presence and not a second before then.
    When his highness finally arrives there will be a royal parade as prince “Brad” will feed Favre grapes and cater to his every request. The squire fumbler “Adrian Peterson” must carry Lord Favre’s cloak as he greets his loyal subjects in the locker room.

  44. MrHumble says: Aug 2, 2010 10:27 PM

    While BF may be an attention whore, he is still one of the best QB’s to ever play the game. Just think what type of career he would’ve had , if he would’ve played with the vikings his whole career! I predict that A. Rodgers will NEVER beat a BF led team….whether it be the vikings or the Rams. Forget the stats, the age, etc. etc…..after BF went into Lambeau and spanked the Rodgers led packers soundly for the second time…..it all became psychological for Rodgers. There hasn’t been enough said about the pressure of stepping into BF’s shoes and then with the 2 spankings last year (especially in Rodger’s house…LAMBEAU) the kid can act as cool calm and collective as he wants but the Silver Fox is in his head and he will never be able to beat him.

    “meanwhile Gayron Rodgers is quitely going about his business becomming the best qb in the league………….. ……enjoy another gut wrenching year viking fans, you deserve it!”
    you may not have heard but the vikings crushed the packers twice last season, won the division, and played in the NFC title game, all in favre’s 1st year with the vikes.
    the packers improved to 2nd in the division. lost the wildcard game with gayrod’s hope crushing overthrow and subsequent fumblekick to end the game in ot. still haven’t done a thing since favre left. packer fans have been bitter and bitterer for 2 years, ever since favre left.

    nope. just butt sore packer fans. to the rest of the nfl watching public he’s the biggest ratings draw in the nfl.

  48. shiftyshellshocked says: Aug 2, 2010 10:31 PM

    being a season ticket holder long before Favre showed up I don’t agree with his B.S. However, you guys would not believe the atmosphere in the Dome when this guy hits the field. Until you watch him walk on to the field for the first series, you would know why we want this guy back. The guy just has that “it” thing about him. Still think he should get his ass in to camp though, won’t hurt him a bit. See-Ya.

    All you whining ass pussies are gonna have an empty feeling deep down inside when Favre finally does retire. You won’t know what to do with your time. Something is going to be missing AND THEN you will realize what it really is……..it will be the “Favre thing”!

  54. crodseth says: Aug 2, 2010 10:58 PM

    The guy is a senior citizen. A senior citizen that can outplay 99% of 25 year olds….so cut him a break, he’s above the two-a-days and sleeping in college dorms. He doesn’t need that, it’s not necessary. Everybody and their dog knows he’ll be back this year, and I’ll bet next year too, although his role will be diminished…

    My reference to “crying wolf” is to packer fans who for several years have been saying what the packers are going to do to the vikings…in 2008 when the vikes were led by TJak and then again last year “they couldn’t wait until rodgers and the pack kicked the crap out of BF and vikings”…not only did the vikings beat them badly, the packers never sacked BF one time. it is the packer fans who “cry wolf” and the rest of the us are tired of hearing the “empty threats”

    This is a complete non-story… no quotes, no facts or anything to back up any sort of uneasiness. Did you speak to a player Florio? Were you at camp?
    You’re such a shill to keep making non-stories such as this just to get extra hits from the loudmouth Packer and Viking fans that fall prey to this site’s blatant pandering to advertising dollars.

    “Vikings swept Packers and played in NFC Title Game.”
    “Yeah but Favre choked.”
    “Yeah but the Packers didn’t make it out of the first round.”
    “Yeah but GB has a rising star in Aaron Rodgers; Minnesota has another year of uncertainty and/or TJ.”
    “Yeah but Favre is worth the uncertainty.”
    “Yeah well call us when you win a Super Bowl.”
    Ad infinitum, ad nauseum….
    Favre is a great player who doesn’t need training camp. He chokes in the playoffs. But he beat Green Bay. I hope he comes back – great for the rivalry.
    Oh and to the Bears fan who posted, your team sucks.

  63. sand0 says: Aug 2, 2010 11:45 PM

    Let me break down this article for you all:
    Title: Uneasiness in Vikes camp. Oh noes what ever could this be about!
    1st Paragraph: Statement that everyone in and out of the org knows he is coming back. I’m not positive but wouldn’t that be literally everyone? But there is still uneasiness, oh do go on Florio you weaver of tales you.
    2nd Paragraph: None of the statements in this paragraph are necessarily offical or know. They are random opinions with no reasons why they are assumed true in this piece. They don’t relate to anything else either. Also don’t use the word apparently twice in one sentence. That is annoying you hack.
    3rd paragraph: This year we presume he’s back. Okay. Neat. But until then anyting can happen. Like what exactly? Him not coming back yet? Florio in this article states that everyone knows he’s coming back, so the only thing that can happen between now and when he comes back is him not having come back yet.
    4th paragraph: It is a random anecdote about how Judd Zulgad explained that players under contract that don’t report to camp are defined as holdouts. Seriously? WTF is the purpose of this? I guess putting in a random definition of the term “hold out” into a logically incoherent and meaningless article about something different somehow proves it? Neat.
    Then the last paragraph. Are we building to some big conclusion? Nope. Just some half assed attempt at humor that plays off of Judd’s unrelated definition of a holdout. Then the lame and unoriginal joke is taken further with the “after all” tag. Hell that last joke seems taken right out of one of those punk teeny bopper Packer fans like Jimmy S or whatever.
    I am seriously done with this site. Today. Right now. Straw that broke the camel’s back was this stupid article about nothing. This is the sand0789 man from the land of many lakes but few cheeses signing off, forever. Peace and god bless all you Vikings fans out there. Maybe see you on the Daily Norseman. To the rest of you idiots a pseudo moon and jiggle.

  64. Gravy Makes Sconnies Fat says: Aug 2, 2010 11:48 PM

    nobody in minnesota expected or wants his schedule to be any different than it was last year considering what an amazing season he had last year. minnesota sports writers have been saying for weeks he’ll play in the 3rd preseason game. the coaches and players know when he’s coming back and they have no problem with it.
    but packer fans continue to let florio torment them by reminding them that he’s coming back. like florio said a few days ago, only the brain dead don’t realize he’s coming back. and he’s gonna do to the packers exactly what he did to them last year. the packers will be fighting for 2nd place again.

  65. MrHumble says: Aug 2, 2010 11:54 PM

    In reading all these posts, there seems to be 2 basic themes.
    1) Packer fans feel “justified” with their anger toward BF and think their tough talk should scare vikings fans when vikings fans don’t seem the least bit worried about BF showing up or when he shows up. Score one for vikings fans
    2) Again, packer fans try to overcome their fear by again, talking tough about what the packers will do IF BF comes back. It’s rather obvious that their real fear is having BF return and what that would mean to the packers chances this year. Packer fans “dare” BF to come back but it’s a common defense mechanism to hide the fear they have that he actually will come back. Again, score one for vikings fans.
    As an aside, vikings fans are more concerned about EJ Henderson being ready to play than BF as viking fans feel the same way as 98% of nfl fans and experts…..the question isn’t IF he will return but when….and as he proved last year, he could should up 2 wks before saints game and be ready to go. BF has forgotten more about football than A. Rodgers will ever know.

    Favre’s whole desicion is based on their week one opponent … in his mind its “will i be able to play all season after the SAINTS D kicks the crap out of me for 4 quarters of the first game of the season?”

    My personal prediction is that he will come back by the final pre-season game, that the Vikings will once again fail to claim the Lombardi Trophy, and that the Viking fans will get to go through this nonsense all over again next year.

    If Brett doesn’t show up, Pervy could fill in at QB.

    I see the idiots are alive on the board…
    To Perky’s Gravy and Missus Humble…..You are both F’n morons.
    Fact is……..Favre is putting his own petty, ignorant, selfish ways ahead of the team. He knows he is coming back. He knows the team would be better if he was there with them through camp. He cares more about himself than his team. What an arrogant F’n loser. He is the best example of the worst in pro sports. I don’t blame Chilly for holding out for him…..but I think BF is burying his once proud legacy……he is now a classless loser.
    Viking fans deserve him.

  74. FavreFavreAway says: Aug 3, 2010 12:35 AM

    For the recede, Rodgers has thrown for over 4,000 yards in each of his first two years as a starter. No other QB has done that in NFL history. Brett who? Good riddance…barring injury, Pack coasts to a Central Division title.

    “Florio, you honestly are a pathetic writer. Can you please tell us WHO is uneasy about Favre not returning. I think half the people that visit this site can become a better writer/analyst then you.”
    1) You should care because no matter what the other fanboys here say, your team will have a hard enough time winning WITH Favre but you’re 8-8 without him. Even though your team has never won anything, you still think they just have to show up on Sunday and they’ll finish 14-2. Not gonna happen. You geniuses saying there will be no drop-off between Favre and Jackson need to check yourselves into the nut house.
    2) I see people like you complaining about what/how Florio writes but you’re still here every day. Your words are hollow and meaningless if keep coming back day after day. Grow a pair and leave if it bothers you. No one is making you come here and last I checked, you still weren’t being charged for a membership here.

  76. Calistin says: Aug 3, 2010 12:55 AM

    God Vikings fans are obssessed w/ Packers fans. It’s a successful season if the Vikings beat the Packers…lol. What a joke. As for this crushing they put on the Packers, just remember all your sacks came against 2nd string tackles and it took Favre putting the entire team on his shoulders for the Vikings to win.
    All of your homophobic comments just make you look like the ignorant tools you are. Vikings fans, class all the way. Especially coming from a team a crossdresser for a coach. Which is a proven fact.
    Favre choked in the playoffs, big suprise, it’s what he does. How he is excused, or doesn’t need training camp is asine to consider. Just goes to show how stupid most Vikings fans are giving him a “free pass.” I’m sure he doesn’t need any work in training camp or a team first attitude. Hell, it worked for them last year…oh wait.
    So funny how all the Vikings fans are all butt hurt about never winning anything, ever. I guess I would lash out at fans of a good franchise too if I rooted for the most terrible franchise in proffesional sports.
    Vikings can’t develop their own QB talent and the Packers have been pumping them out for years. Prove me wrong, you can’t.

    And Aaron Rodgers threw, er… kicked one of the most embarrassing passes in a Wild Card game.
    But THE most embarrassing pass of course is the one you made at Rodgers – giving him 12 Red Roses and letting him ride your bike.
    “… the players actually mingle with the kids in attendance and even ride the kids bikes to and from the practice field. I got high fives from Pro Bowlers, veterans and rookies.”

    Who is more hated by sports fans: Favre or LeBron? How about in their specific cities (Cleveland/Green Bay)?
    AS hated as they both might be (outside of Miami and Minnesota) they are good for their perspective sports in the ratings department. Although I would argue that LeBron is going to be bad for the NBA in the long run, but this isn’t and NBA thread, so I digress.

    Yeah? Did the old d*ckhead get a Super Bowl ring out of it? No, he did what he does best – end seasons with stupid picks. Seeing him do it in purple was, well, much better, LOL.

  92. va4favre says: Aug 3, 2010 8:46 AM

    I was so relieved to see this story since I was going into Favre withdrawal! I think Lambeau is a very special place but really, there is nothing
    else to do in GB. I think Rodgers has great potential, but I hate the fact that the anti-Favres are pumping him up. I want to see him win a playoff game first. I also think that unless Rodgers wins 2 SBs, he is unlikely to equal the level Favre had in the heart of GB fans. He is so homely, and I don’t think everyone in GB will welcome a gay QB. I hope I’m wrong, but then I live in WDC where it would be no problem.

    MrHumble –
    Who’s going to take over for Favre when he retires for good? See, the Packers had a guy to take over and he’s done a great job despite his lack of experience. The Vikings have no plan in place since they’re the Vikings and can’t think past the current year. Enjoy this year, and keep enjoying last years wins against the Packers. It’s really all you Viking fans have, besides the impressive (?) division titles. Aim high!

  97. Ravens Fan says: Aug 3, 2010 9:34 AM

    Any objective, unbiased football observer knows that the Vikings are a better team than the Packers and the results the last few seasons have certainly proved that.
    What’s strange is that Packer fans don’t seem to care how their team does as long as Favre doesn’t win the Super Bowl. Expectations in Green Bay seem to be very low but anger remains very high.

    Vikings and Packer fans alike would do well to realize this and find another place to get real football news. You all play right into the PFT talking heads’ hands way too easily, and it’s kind of pathetic.

    probably mcnabb until we find and groom someone younger.
    ******************
    “See, the Packers had a guy to take over and he’s done a great job despite his lack of experience.”
    he’s in his 6th season and his record is 17-15 with 0 playoff wins. he will always remain in favre’s shadow, his whole career, which has kind of doomed his career. he had talent, it’s a shame he didn’t wind up with a team where he wouldn’t always be remembered as the legend’s understudy.

    I’m not sure how everything else would have turned out, but he’d certainly be minus one Super Bowl ring.
