Favre Watch 2010: Longwell Speculation

Vikings quarterback Brett Favre has called in a favor from his long time friend, kicker Ryan Longwell, to heighten the drama of his imminent decision. Longwell has stated that he believes there is a fair chance Favre could actually retire, and puts the chances of him returning to him retiring squarely at 50-50. This is a pretty big breakthrough on the Favre Watch, since this is the first time this season that we’ve had some hard statistics to work with in terms of calculating Favre’s return. Initially we had spotted Favre as 60-40 favoring a return to the field, but given Longwell’s analysis it looks as though Favre is closer to retirement than we thought.

With this 10% increase in possibility towards Favre retiring, the Vikings have begun walk-on tryouts for the quarterback position, feeling strongly that any option is better than Tavaris Jackson.
