    Brett Favre finally makes up his mind

    Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on August 17, 2010 2:46 PM ET

    There's just something about August 17th that Brett Favre must like. (Either that, or Jared Allen did a great job tying Favre up.)

    Exactly one year from the day Brad Childress first chauffeured Favre to the Minnesota Vikings facility, there are multiple indications that Favre has finally decided to return to the team for the 2010 season.

    Scott Hanson of NFL Network reports that Favre is on a jet heading north to Minnesota. We haven't confirmed that news, but we can repeat an email sent out from Brett Favre's official website. The email says:

    "Stay tuned for breaking news from the Minnesota Vikings today on Brett Favre's possible return. Visit the Vikings.com and Officialbrettfavre.com for more information."

    Was there ever any doubt?

    UPDATE: The Minneapolis Star-Tribune confirms Favre is on a flight to Minnesota. Although this gives him extra time to change his mind.

    UPDATE II: Jay Glazer of FOX reports that Favre told the trio of Vikings who came to persuade him to return that he is "back in" and he's on a plane to Minnesota now. Glazer notes Favre hasn't told the team anything yet and could always change his mind.

    if you had Brett Favre, Terrell Owens, Chad OchoStinko, and Randy Moss on the same team, which one would be the biggest attention whore?

    Favre says 2010 will be his last year, and he possibly means it

    Posted by Mike Florio on August 18, 2010 4:03 PM ET

    In a lengthy and at times rambling press conference held at the Vikings' facility on Wednesday, quarterback Brett Favre said that 2010 will be his final season of professional football.

    Most of you will believe it when you see it.

    One man who already believes it is coach Brad Childress, who claimed in remarks after Favre spoke that the Vikings coach believes Favre will make his 20th NFL season his last, in part because Childress thinks Favre likes to operate in round numbers.

    Favre will embark on his 20th season with a surgically-repaired ankle. He said he needed the procedure three years ago, and that last week's visit with Dr. Andrews revealed the development of a new bone spur.

    He said that surgery hasn't made the ankle feel nearly as good as surgery on his biceps tendon made him feel last year. So it sounds like the ankle could continue to be an issue. (In other words, X marks the spot.)

    Favre acknowledged the pressure of trying to duplicate his performance and the team's achievements in 2009, and he said that the visit from kicker Ryan Longwell, guard Steve Hutchinson, and defensive end Jared Allen (whom Childress described as "good cop, bad cop, funny cop") persuaded him to give it another try.

    As to the clandestine trip to Mississippi, Childress apologized for instructing special-team coordinator Brian Murphy and offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell to lie about the whereabouts of the three players. The decision not to tell the truth in this regard continues to strike us as odd, and it confirms our belief that, on many occasions, NFL coaches and teams and players tell something other than the truth.

    One thing we do believe is that Favre likely will play on Sunday night in San Francisco, when the Vikings face the 49ers in a preseason game. He says he wants to play, and Childress says he wants to play.

    I gave up giving a **** about Favre a long time ago. I've got no use for drama queens, and I can't believe anyone still cares about the guy.

    TO paraphrase Tom Hanks from the movie "A League of Their Own": "There's no DRAMA! There's no drama in FOOTBALL!!!":tdown:
