It's a holiday weekend here in Canada and there have been some updates to the Brett Favre drama but nothing concrete involving the Vikings. Because so many of those updates are stories based on information from various shadowy figures, I'm going to try to stay away from posting about them until either Favre is traded somewhere or not. Only then will I have an opinion – I think.
Anyone who reads this blog regularly has Internet access and so you know just as well as I do what's the latest news on Number 4. In the meantime, I'll be attempting to write some posts this week about other pressing issues for the Vikings that are not Favre-related. There has to be a few of those? Right?
One of the posts will hopefully be an update on the Vikings linebacker and defensive back situation, which I've only been trying to write about since January. Another could be about the difficulty in assessing the Vikings preseason performance when you don't live in the Minnesota area and can't watch all their games, in what some people like to refer to these days as "real time". I'll also be writing about what Vikings fans should be looking for – if anything – when the Vikes play their first preseason game against Seattle this week.
And if this report turns out to be legit, it could be an indication as to what kind of punishment NFL commissioner Roger Goodell is going to hand out to Viking left tackle Bryant McKinnie.
