Here is a nightmare scenario that people aren't thinking about:

-The lockout goes into mid October.

-The season is reduced to a 10 game season. Free agents are ruled to have to stay with their former team for the current season because that huge amount of free agents will not be able to be signed in time due to there being a short training camp (2 to 3 weeks) And, quite frankly teams would not be able to fill all of the empty roster spots in that short amount of time (It takes months in the off season)

-The Vikings have no free agent QB to take over and cannot work out a trade.

-They get on the phone and call Favre. "Hey Brett, you wanna play this season for us? It is only 10 games. You won't wear down so bad. And, we may be able to sneak in the playoffs. Come on Brett what do you say? 10 Game season??? Huh? Huh???"

That folks is a nightmare scenario that is not out of the realm of possibility.

Ahh the dreaded ***** thread. Maybe they should check the Hospitals, he is still probably being sewn back together after last season

Someone in Minne needs to find the writer of this crap and give him a good hard smack! Dumb-**** that can't leave well enough alone.

March 13, 2011  11:45 AM ET

Noooooooooo!!!! Please, for the love of all that is holy, make this go away!

Brett's gone for good. He's now texting private pictures to the Waffle House waitress.

I agree.

The only way I see Brett Favre coming back is if he's playing a shortened season. And the shortened season is a huge possibility.

The lockout is actually just one big conspiracy to keep Brett Favre on the field.

There are more important things in this world then Brett Favre:p

Why don't they just call Childress? He and Favre went to a drive in movie last week. He might know for sure.

March 13, 2011  01:00 PM ET

Brett reported early to the minimum security prision in Waterbury CT to begin serving the likely sentence he will get for obscenity

March 13, 2011  01:02 PM ET

Did it ever occur to them that he has tried but his calls just keep getting intercepted?

March 13, 2011  01:05 PM ET

I am thinking his wife took away his cell phone . Thats all. He would call if he could.
