Mankato, MN became the epicenter of the NFL on Tuesday with reports that Vikings QB Brett Favre has informed team officials that he intends to retire. There’s been no confirmation of this report from the Vikings and head coach Brad Childress explained to reporters during his post-practice press conference that the situation remains fluid and that he hasn’t been informed by Favre of a decision.
After this afternoon’s practice – which was held in humid conditions and last just short of 2 hours – several players were asked of their reactions to these reports and they answered the questions similarly.
“He was definitely a big part of our offense,” RB Adrian Peterson said. “It’s hard to replace a guy like Favre. It’s hard. But our expectation still stays the same. Taking it one step at a time and getting back in the position we were in last year. NFC Championship game, winning it and grabbing it all. That’s not changing at all.”
And we won’t get on the spot, either, until something more substantial develops. In the meantime, CJ is working on a follow up story to his report on Monday about the Vikings safeties that will be posted shortly and we’ll be posting more video interviews of players.
