For Favre, Wilf Willing To Wait

Posted by Mike Wobschall on March 22, 2010 – 3:19 pm

Vikings Owner/Chairman Zygi Wilf is in Orland at the annual NFL Owners’ Meetings, which is why you’ve likely heard sound bites or quotes from him on several league issues – including the proposed change to the structure of overtime.

Another issue that Wilf has commented on, however, is his starting QB – Brett Favre – and whether or not #4 will return for his 2nd season with the club in 2010.

Both Head Coach Brad Childress and VP of Player Personnel Rick Spielman have indicated this offseason that they are willing to be patient with Favre and give him the time he needs to make a decision on his return. Wilf is on the same page and echoed those sentiments to Judd Zulgad of the Star Tribune.

“I really don’t know at this time but like I said before I’d love to have him back and [we'll] just give him the time necessary to make that decision,” Wilf told Zulgad.

While speaking with Zulgad, Wilf also said that he hasn’t spoken with Favre this offseason but that at some point down the road he might just reach out to the future Hall of Famer.

Marquee Games In 2010 To Be Announced Tuesday

Posted by Mike Wobschall on March 22, 2010 – 12:30 pm

Prevailing thought was that the NFL would announce the schedule for many of its 2010 marquee games today at the NFL Owners’ Meetings in Orlando, FL. But, as is often the case, prevailing thought was wrong.

According to Mike Klis of the Denver Post and a tweet from ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the NFL will wait until Tuesday to make the announcement.

The reason this news is relevant to the Vikings is because the prevailing thought (uh-oh) among NFL followers is that the 2010 season-opener – which traditionally pits the defending Super Bowl champions against an intriguing opponent on the Thursday before the 1st Sunday of the regular season – will have the Vikings traveling to New Orleans for a tilt against the Saints in what would be a rematch of last season’s NFC Championship Game.

While we’re speculating on who will play in the NFL’s marquee games of 2010, let’s also throw out the idea of the Vikings – who play at the NY Jets in 2010 – traveling to the Big Apple for a Thanksgiving night contest against the Jets.

Stay tuned to for more news and updates, including an announcement regarding these marquee games.
