It’s hard to say whether or not Frazier will be kept next year, or if he will field other offers. In fact, it’s hard to speculate where a lot of these players will be when 2012 comes traipsing along. But one thing that seems a sure bet is that Favre is bound for retirement.
But that means Favre has to let go when the time comes.
The best way to make the best of this situation is to simply walk away for good this time, and not get involved in any off-season speculative acts of retirement.
This team is already plotted for a new direction, and that will not happen until Favre lets go legitimately.
The players need to know who will be their leader from day one, not upon the eleventh hour.
The organization needs to know that the Favre regime is over, so they can look towards who will be the new Vikings’ heir.
And the fans need to have some sort of closure to two of the most taxing years they’ve ever been a part of, in order to usher in a new beginning.
In summation, for Favre to make the best of his situation, he’ll need to have fun chasing his own shadow, while taking advantage of what lies ahead before deciding to let go once and for all and simply hang up the cleats!
