A monday night game with Favre in a Queens uniform would be insane - would be like the superbowl for number of viewers.

Speaking of pain killers, I think ol Brett must be on them right now if he's thinking of going to MN.

Just heard, again, on ESPN that Favre is looking for ways to not have surgery. He is seeking ways to heal the bicep naturally. What I personally think is, no one really has any idea what is going on. Everyone has experts that are better than the next, so all we are going to hear is conflicting reports. Vick gets out on Wednesday....

That's why I tend to believe my source that told me last week that he had the surgery last Thursday. They just want to keep the drama going.

this whole thing is nuts, yesterday ESPN was going on and on about surgery today, their source was P. Press, then after the twins game they were saying he wasn't meeting with andrews. Wonder why Favre can't just come out and speak for himself? Oh ya he loves all this attention he's getting

Childress Says Favre Remains Retired.

Words about Brett Favre's retirement always include a qualifier, and Vikings coach Brad Childress offered the latest: "As far as I know."

Childress declined Thursday to close the door on signing the famously flip-flopping quarterback, who declared for a second time in February he was done with football for good.

The coach confirmed for the first time this year, though, that he's spoken with Favre, but said their last contact was "several weeks ago" and solely by phone.

"It was worth a conversation," Childress said, "and as far as I know he's still retired."

Favre has, at least according to several media reports relying on unnamed sources, considered coming out of retirement in recent weeks while assessing his health. He has a partially torn biceps tendon, which causes pain in his throwing shoulder and prompted him to call it quits after a 2008 season with the New York Jets that started well but ended badly.

When the Jets released him this offseason, making him a free agent, Favre said: "Nothing has changed. At this time, I am retired and have no intention of returning to football."

Favre's agent, Bus Cook, has repeated a similar line this month while unsubstantiated speculation about Favre's status has swirled around the country, claiming his client remains retired -- to the best of his knowledge.

Without a no-way, no-how statement from either the Vikings, Favre or his inner circle, well, the possibility won't be forgotten anytime soon. But Childress tried to put it to rest, taking questions from reporters for the first time in three weeks.

"You're interested in going through the process," the coach said. "And are you interested in a Hall of Fame caliber quarterback? You're always interested in going through the process and discussing it and investigating it."

Childress didn't comment whether the team has looked at Favre's medical reports, whether there's a point this summer when it would be too late to hire him, or whether Favre directly expressed interest in playing for Minnesota.

The coach quipped that Favre simply told him how warm the weather has been in Mississippi, and that he's spending time replacing fence posts.

"He's retired, so it's not relevant and it's not any of my focus right now," Childress said.

The same goes for the guys who are supposed to be competing for that job Favre might or might not want. Tarvaris Jackson, who shared repetitions in Thursday's practice with Sage Rosenfels, smiled as he explained his Favre fatigue.

"When you see it over and over again, it really don't matter who they're talking about. You get kind of tired watching reruns," Jackson said. "I just change the channel. I don't read the paper anymore. That's pretty much it."

Jackson went through this last year, when Favre tried to return to Green Bay and was ultimately traded to the Jets when the Packers refused to let him go to the Vikings.

"I'm pretty much used to it by now. It's expected for a guy of his caliber. I'm not really worried about that," Jackson said.

Rosenfels, who was acquired in a trade with the Houston Texans earlier this year, didn't sound quite as amused. But he expressed the same can't-control-it-so-don't-try attitude toward the incessant media coverage of the story.

"I have blocked you guys out as much as I can for the last nine years of my life," Rosenfels said. "So really nothing has changed -- the way I prepare, the way I work out here at practice."

Punter Chris Kluwe was clearly amused by the swarm of cameras present for one of 14 on-field, non-contact workouts the Vikings have scheduled over the next month.

"FavreFavreFavreFavre, FavreFavreFavreFavre," he said, sounding like a barking dog as he walked past.

The subject of Favre has unavoidably come up in talks between Childress and his quarterbacks, but they all downplayed any need to clear the air about the team's intentions.

Jackson acknowledged he'd like to know what's going to happen, for the sake of his career direction, but said he realizes the business he's in.

"You can't really blame them. He's a great player and, like you said, a future Hall of Famer," Jackson said. "The team we have and the guys we have around us, why not? But I feel like I can get the job done, and I'm just trying to get better each day. That's my job right now. I'm not really focused on the what-ifs. If it happens, it happens. But until it happens, I'm just going to continue to come out here and get better, and when it happens I'm going to do the same."
