This is no guarantee that there won’t be more Brett Favre-to-the- Vikings news this week. However, it’s a safe bet that Favre won’t be officially joining the Vikings for the next eight days.
That’s because coach Brad Childress is departing on a fishing trip to Alaska this morning and isn’t scheduled to return until next Monday. Childress will be joining his friend and Philadelphia Eagles coach Andy Reid for some rest and relaxation. Childress, of course, served as the Eagles’ OC under Reid before becoming the Vikings coach in 2006.
