PLAYERS: Brett Favre
TEAMS: Minnesota Vikings
What quarterback are Steelers and Bears fans seriously asking about to become their temporary quarterback? None other than Brett Favre. Grandpa is 43, hasn’t played since 2010 and is busy trying to enjoy a family vacation at Disney World. Meanwhile, here comes his name again. It’s not like the guy isn’t in shape. He just ran a 5k about 10 days ago. According to boots on the ground, Brett has been trying to avoid the crush of fans while his wife, once again, subjects gramps to a public vacation that is a giant hassle. Remember Thanksgiving week 2011 in Gatlinburg and Dollywood? Brett’s worst nightmare. Of course Deanna picks these locations when kids and their dumb jersey-chasing dads are on vacation. Now he’s hitting a breakfast buffet and being guarded by Disney security. Fun! If there was ever a time to get Favre to sign, it would be this week. We suggest the Steelers get a Rooney plane down there immediately. Filed under: Football

Cook vows to return this season for Vikings

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. Chris Cook was more than frustrated when he left the field on Oct. 25 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers after suffering an arm injury that he thought might wipe out another season.

Ponder under pressure a mixed bag for Vikings

The Vikings are hoping a bye-week self-scout can help improve their passing offense.
