Ok lets have your best guess as to the date Farve will announce whether he will play this year or not.

I am picking July 4th.

I can't find the actual date, but my money is on it being the friday a week before the first preseason game. Not the friday of the preseason weekend, the week before. Sometime after Aug 13th and before Aug 31st. I'll edit when the actual date hits.

Donīt mind about the date,just hope he comes back and I bet he will,A season with Tarvarias and Rosnefels would be a real pain in the ass.

Then unretire after training camp.

sounds about right. If we're going for the date of his final decision to play, that is, ignoring all the retiring bs, mid August sounds right.

August 15th, 2:33pm from his tractor in MS.

I can't decide yet, hope there isn't any deadline.

Something will probably come out early April 1st but will it be true

Day before the draft.

He has nothing to concern himself about for your training camp. If he wants to bust a gut, he will. If not, he will not. I don't blame him or the Vikes FO..the new Barney paradigm worked quite well last year, and when you compare it to what the Jets did the previous year (basically threw his arm out--remember?) I think the lesson was learned.

Many want to kid/ridicule/whatever the Vikings and Favre for this "game", but the fact remains that it worked last year.
I say that if he is playing this year, and I think he is, you will be hearing about it sooner than most would anticipate.

Just tell Chilly that he has to hold a presser letting everyone know that Barney isn't staying in any damn dorm and I think you will be good to go for aforementioned training camp.

I'm going that early because I figure no one else will.

Favre put on his stinky ol Nike Golf hat got on his tractor and told Chiller "I'll Be Back" a la the Terminator.

Seriously he IS coming back, there is no doubt in my mind. Chilli, Zygi and everyone else knows it. They will NOT say it, and frankly they SHOULDNT. We would not be this quiet in the offseason regarding the QB situation otherwise.

He'll retire on April 1 then before the draft he'll say it was a very long drawn out April Fool's prank and he'll play. Then lead us to the NFC championship game where we beat the packers 42-0 then win the SB over the Pats.

I say he retires, then during week 1 with T-Jack warming up before kick-off, a worried Chilli turns and spots Favre in the crowd, he motions at him to come over. In an instant superman style Favre rips off his street clothes to reveal a dazzling white 4 emblazoned on the purple and gold jersey. With 1 bound he leaps on to the field as the crowd go nuts then goes on to throw a career best of 836yds and 9 TD's.

I'll say the Wednesday before the 2nd pre-season game.

I doubt he'll say anything before training camp because we all know he hates it. And even though many people on that team have said they don't care if he skips tc, it's still a bad look to skip it.

Who cares, Favre is god. Training camp is for those who need it. TJ fans should be thrilled he gets to take extra snaps.

Unless Favre retires he already told us he is playing this year when he signed a two year deal last year.

So my guess is the day he signed the two year deal. :woohoo:

he'll announce it after the 2nd preseason game, and play in the 3rd preseason game. but honestly, hell if i care if he announces it a on opening day at 11am and wants to be the starter for 1pm game, i just want the guy to be on the roster!

I'd say it won't be long (1-2 weeks) AFTER the Draft. He'll want to see what the Front Office does to bolster the roster, and also to see what the official schedule looks like, ie. how many cold-weather games they're scheduled for.

Week two of training camp.

I am sure that the FO will know before free agency and the draft take place. They have to know whether or not they are looking for a QB or not. If we don't make any major QB moves then I am sure he is coming back. I am thinking he will make the announcement before training camp. After the bad prima dona press last time I think he would like to avoid that.
