Brett Favre is Staying Retired... Maybe.

The will-he, won't-he Brett Favre saga is finally over... for now. Favre finally made a decision and phoned Vikings coach Brad Childress on Tuesday and told him that he will be staying retired.

I'm sure this won't be the last we hear or see of Favre, especially since he has a Sears commercial coming out in September where he says he hates people that can't make up their mind.

Hopefully though, it's the last we hear from/of Favre this season. At least ESPN's Rachel Nichols no longer has to camp out in front of Favre's house in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, anymore this summer.

One can't help but wonder, now that Favre has made his decision (until tomorrow at least!), if the Vikings are going to give a call to a certain former-Pro Bowl quarterback who recently was released from federal custody and was recently reinstated into the NFL.

My feeling is that Mike Vick will be contacted by the Vikings in the coming days, or week, because let's face it, the Vikings' other options at QB aren't that promising, with Sage Rosenfels and Tarvaris Jackson.

One of those QBs is this guy. The other had the starting job at the beginning of last season, and then was benched by Week 3 because of his inconsistency and inability to lead the team into the endzone.

So why not take a risk with Vick? If he could be half the player he was before the whole dogfighting fiasco, then I say go for it. Besides, could you imagine how explosive that offense could be with Vick, Adrian Peterson, Bernard Berrian and rookie Percy Harvin.
