We recently posted the terse response of Vikings owner Zygi Wilf to a call from Charley Walters of the St. Paul Pioneer Press seeking comment on the “heated discussion” between coach Brad Childress and quarterback Brett Favre.
“Don’t bother me, OK?” was Wilf’s reply.
But the man who has owned the team for four years later spoke about the situation with Sid Hartman of the Minneapolis Star Tribune.
“We win four and we’re in the Super Bowl,” Wilf said. “We’re going to have to take
it one day at a time, but it’s great to be in this position, and all
the talk about us — whatever the talk’s [between Favre and Childress]
been going on the past week — has definitely been blown out of
proportion. We’re going to work hard to win this game [against the
Bears on Monday night] and move on.”
Possibly to demonstrate his lack of concern regarding the possibly icy relationship between “Chilly” and Favre, Wilf also said that he’ll do everything he can to persuade Favre to come back for another go in 2010.
The bigger question is whether Childress will feel the same way.
