The Brett Favre situation may be soaring toward a resolution.
The Star-Tribune is reporting that three Vikings players – Jared Allen, Steve Hutchinson and Ryan Longwell – hopped on a private plane last night and flew to Mississippi to meet up with Favre. This trip was surely made at the behest of Zygi Wilf and Brad Childress, who are no doubt anxious to have Favre give an answer one way or another.
As of this AM, the three players involved in the great Favre expedition were not yet back at practice.
Of course there is no way of knowing what the three guys said to Favre, or what Favre said to them. My guess, given the tone of recent statements by Allen and others, is that the trio firmly but politely asked Favre to, if you’ll excuse the vulgarity, shit or get off the pot.
Whatever was said, I’m sure the meeting was amiable. And I’m also sure that it made no difference whatsoever to Favre’s decision-making process. Favre will do what he wants when he wants, and will announce it when he feels like it.
At least those three guys got a nice little break from practice. And probably had some good barbecue. For the rest of us…more waiting.
