08:10 AM ET 08.19 | Could Brett Favre Round 2 unfold as calamity? As Minnesota's best hope to win a Super Bowl this season was rejoining the team, Brad Childress was losing more ground with his team in the battle for respect. One of the biggest issues playing out behind the scenes in Minnesota is that many players, particularly on offense, have no respect for Childress. Among those players is Favre, who officially returned to the team Wednesday. According to multiple team sources, Favre's disdain for Childress is deep. "Brett thinks Childress has no clue about offense," a Vikings player said. Childress' presence, not Favre's ankle injury, was one of the biggest reasons Favre was hesitating about playing again, sources said.

Probably from all that dirt in the knees of Coach's pants after his trip to Mississippi.

Should have used more bleach...

As a kicker, he's probably not used to that much attention...

Well, at least for something other than a missed field goal.

Put some habaneros in that chili and it will get more respect.

We go from "the most interesting man" to "the most predictable" in the NFL, excellent.
