Vikings Head Coach Brad Childress echoed the same sentiment that Vikings VP of Player Personnel Rick Spielman had on Thursday regarding the question of whether QB Brett Favre will return to the team in 2010.
Just as Spielman communicated on Thursday, Childress says he’s received no indication one way or the other from the QB and Childress also didn’t seem fixed on applying any sort of time line or deadline for a decision.
“I just think it’s important to manage a guy’s resources, particularly a 40 or a 41-year old, and there’s really not a manual on that,” Childress said. “You have to be able to deal with uncertainty and ambiguity in this business, whether you’re a player or a coach, and deal with it well. I think our players get that, understand that. I think they’ll be fine.”
Childress said he spoke with Favre twice earlier this week – on Monday and Tuesday – and that those conversations ranged from football issues to family matters.
“He was more fixated on getting some crushed limestone down on the road to his mother-in-law’s house on his property,” a grinning but honest Childress said. “They have a water issue down there. I think he’s got other things on his mind right now and certainly I couldn’t give him any landscape architecture ideas or anything.”
While Childress declined to get into more specifics of his conversations with the QB, he did say that he won’t be surprised either way on Favre’s decision for 2010.
