Favre saga continues and so does our video marathon

Perhaps the Brett Favre should stop surprising us. It has taken so many twists and turns since the Packers lost to the Giants in the NFC Championship game and the future Hall of Famer announced his retirement before almost immediately beginning to second-guess his decision that we should be prepared for anything.

But what happened last night really was stunning. For Favre and Green Bay coach Mike McCarthy to have to spend 4 ½ hours talking about the very same issues that have been churning for weeks and weeks is just mind-boggling. It was suppose to last an hour-and-a-half. I have to confess that after Favre had spent hours and hours with team president Mark Murphy last week and all the back and forth with GM Ted Thompson (that you would think included, even indirectly McCarthy) that there would have been an understanding between the two sides before Favre returned to the team.

Well, apparently not. That the Packers had to cancel much-anticipated meetings with the team and the media simply shows that even the organization was caught off-guard by the impasse that still exists between the player and now the coach.

The Packers next practice is scheduled for 2 p.m., CT. At this point, it's unclear whether Favre will be there. What is clear is that unless Favre simply gives up and returns to Mississippi, this will be with us for a while.

To inject a little levity, we've been posting Favre-related videos. This one is a take-off on the trailer for the Batman movie Dark Knight. This is called Favre Knight with Thompson apparently cast as the villain.
