Vikings HC declined to close the door on Favre

Minneapolis Star-Tribune - [Full Article]

Vikings coach Brad Childress said today that “as far as I know [Brett Favre] is still retired,” but declined to completely close the door on the QB coming out of retirement to play for the Vikings. Childress acknowledged he has spoken with Favre on the phone — “Just like I did last year, three months ago,” Childress said — but added the two have not talked in several weeks. “He’s retired, so it’s not relevant and it’s not any of my focus right now,” Childress said following the Vikings’ 3rd day or organized team activities. ” Asked why he didn’t simply close the door on Favre situation — if it is indeed dead — Childress said: “Because I think you take every situation as it comes along. For me to stand here and say something is going to happen I don’t know. I just don’t know. It’s all hypothetical and I just think we’ve got to the point where we hypothetically ask a question that we have to have an answer to. … So the question becomes the story and you can write volumes on it one side or the other. Again, it’s not something that I’m entertaining and I’m more focused on the guys that are part of this football team. Old and young in the building or out on the grass. That’s what I put all my energy into right now.”
