Brad Childress Does Not Know If Brett Favre Will Return

Minnesota Vikings head coach Brad Childress said Thursday that he doesn’t know what quarterback Brett Favre is planning to do.

“I’ve said this and I really believe it even more right now,” Childress said in an interview on KFAN-1130 AM. “It would not surprise me either way.”

Childress also had this profound quote regarding Favre’s decision.

“You’re either all in or not all in,” Childress said. “That’s wherein the decision lies.”

The Vikings open training camp in eight days.

Brett Favre, Brad Childress Didn't Talk About A Deadline During Mississippi Meeting

Minnesota Vikings head coach Brad Childress was in Hattiesburg, Miss., to meet with Vikings quarterback Brett Favre earlier this week, but they reportedly didn’t talk about Favre’s plans for the future.

Favre talked to USA Today about the meeting, but insists that he’s made no decision on whether to return to Minnesota next season.

“The deadline? I don’t know,‘’ Favre said. "There obviously comes a point where you’ve probably gone too far, where you just have to move on. He hopes I make the right decision for myself — one way or the other. Our visit was great. I think the world of him (and) his patience."

Favre also discussed how his ankle, the reason that his professional football future is in doubt, has been healing.

“After almost nine weeks, it’s not where I would like it to be, but I’m working at it,‘’ he said. "Maybe it never gets to where I want it to be. Forty years old … three surgeries … that’s all you need to know.’’

The Vikings open training camp July 30 with their season opener happening September 9 in New Orleans.

Allen Thinks Favre Is Coming Back

Put Jared Allen firmly into the camp of those that believe Brett Favre will, indeed, be quarterbacking the Minnesota Vikings this season.

“If I was a betting man, and I had to put money on it today, absolutely,” Allen said Thursday when asked on “The Waddle & Silvy Show” on ESPN 1000 if he thinks Favre will return. "I hope if the answer was no, he would have already had the wherewithal to tell us that he’s not coming back so we could have done something in free agency.

“But again, the man’s earned the right to do what he pleases. He hasn’t let anybody down yet, so I’m not here to start harping on it yet.”

Frankly, that’s as strong an indication as any that Favre wants to play. If he had zero interest in playing next season, then he a) wouldn’t have signed a two-year deal with the Vikings prior to last year, and b) would have told Brad Childress something already so the Vikings could have prepared for that contingency.

Just more reason to believe that #4 will be behind center in 2010, leading the Vikings to a third consecutive NFC North championship.
