Vikings make mistake with Favre, plus Westin fallout

You would think I think this Brett Favre-to-Minnesota story is great, but I don’t. I think it’s wrong. I think it’s a circus. And I think Minnesota coach Brad Childress is making a mistake.

If I were Childress, I’d have waited until Sage Rosenfels struggled — if he struggled — and then made the call to Favre. By doing it now, Childress loses Rosenfels and Tarvaris Jackson; how can they ever trust anything he says now? I’m sure both are furious, and Rosenfels, particularly, is crushed. And the way Favre talked to me three weeks ago, there’s a chance he won’t last the season and Childress will have to turn to one of his angry quarterbacks.
