07:28 AM ET 07.21 | Operating in a "unique situation," Brett Favre has no deadline to return, and, apparently the blessing of both his coach and teammates to make his own timetable. The fact that [Brad] Childress did not set a deadline in his latest dealings with Favre is not a surprise given how he has handled the situation this offseason. Childress has made it clear that Favre is operating under a different set of rules, and many of the veteran's teammates said at the end of last season they were all right with him skipping the Mankato portion of camp. The Vikings' first practice of camp will be July 30 and their last practice in Mankato will be Aug. 12. Favre, if he does return, might not play until the third preseason game on Aug. 28 against Seattle; the Vikings open the season on Sept. 9 in New Orleans.

Maybe T&R needs to have a "unique situation" with Brett Favre and not report anything more about him until there is news. Operating under "a different set of rules," there would be no threads about Deanna buying towels at Kohls, and no threads about what Drew Brees thinks of Brett Favre's return chances.

Then they can get back to discussing contract modifications for second-rate players like they've been doing for the last month. Forget football. It's all this lawyer and agent stuff we're really interested in anyway, right?

We all know the agents are the real stars. The players are just the vehicle for getting their names out there.

Childress isn't setting deadlines this year because Favre ignored them last year.

AAAAHHH... Let's all just take a moment and bask in the glory of another "will he/won't he" thread.

Ok, time to move on.

I'd rather have Deanna on my fantasy team.

Is is just me or does it seem a bit surreal that the photo of Favre has the sign Emergency Exit in the background? Whoever took that picture should get some kind of award. Hey Brett, look behind you. I think I see a way out of this.
