Default Breaking News: Favre to stay retired

Favre

Quarterback Brett Favre has informed Minnesota Vikings officials that he will remain retired, according to The Star Tribune.

Coach Brad Childress confirmed the news to the Star Tribune, leaving the Vikings in an unexpected and awkward spot with training camp set to open Wednesday. The Vikings are now left to choose between Tarvaris Jackson and Sage Rosenfels as their 2009 starter.

"I just think it was a rare opportunity to explore a Hall of Fame quarterback who had background in the NFC and in this division," Childress said to the newspaper. "He knows our system inside out ... This doesn't change anything about how I feel about our football team."

Well, I guess we all know where Vick is headed now.

It probably won't even create much of a disturbance in Minnesota, since during football season any protesters would just freeze to death.

I say who cares. I just dont know how childress goes back to jackson or rosenfels. I think childress is reaching for anything to save his job.

Maybe they will trade for Vince Young if they don't sign Vick.
