Don't expect Favre to be benched

Minneapolis Star-Tribune - [Full Article]

Now that Brad Childress has been fired as coach of the Vikings some will expect that interim coach Leslie Frazier will end the NFL's longest starting streak and bench Brett Favre.

We have one response to that: Don't count on it.

Frazier might have been promoted but we have feeling that won't give him the power to sit Favre and quite frankly from everything we've heard he likely has no interest in replacing Favre with Tarvaris Jackson.

As the relationship between Favre and Childress grew more strained, it was Frazier who served as a sounding board for a frustrated Favre. Frazier became one of Favre's main allies last month when Childress considered benching the quarterback against New England because of fractures in his ankle and heel.

If nothing else, remember that owner Zygi Wilf is paying Favre $1 million per game this season and likely wouldn't be too thrilled to have that investment serving as a spectator on Sundays.
