Minnesota Vikings' quarterback Brett Favre is reportedly going to appear on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno on March 4.

While his appearance on the show could easily be nothing more than a small promotion or NBC's marketing team squeezing an audience out of the 40-year-old gunslinger, writers everywhere will tune in, hoping Favre drops a hint about his 2010 plans.

After throwing for over 4,200 yards, 33 touchdowns, and just seven interceptions, Favre and the Vikings' season ended in the NFC Championship game. The future hall of famer threw a costly interception in the final minute of regulation, as Minnesota went on to lose to the New Orleans Saints in overtime 31-28.

So, the question is: is Favre still battered and bruised, both physically and mentally, or is he ready (already) to give it another go?

Favre's appearance on a late night talk show is especially interesting, because during the last three national telecasts he's appeared on, he's discussed (at least in some manner) his desire to return to the NFL.

Last year, Favre told David Letterman that "something was bound to happen" when training camp rolled around, and even admitted to having conversations with the Vikings last offseason in an interview on Joe Buck's HBO show.

Despite original feelings from his teammates that he was done, Favre has remained quiet. Several people close to Favre have begun to change their tune, and quite a few people are predicting he'll come back for one more year.

Ryan Longwell and Ben Leber, both teammates of Favre, have said they feel that he will come back, while a respected Minnesota columnist, as well as Favre's brother Scott, have said they think he'll return in 2010.

The question, then, has been: if they're so sure about Favre's future, when will Favre be positive?

Who knows? Perhaps we'll find out on March 4.
