Minnesota Vikings running back NFL&id=4169" title="Adrian Peterson" target="_blank">Adrian Peterson has joined the long list of fans, reporters, and teammates to lobby for Brett Favre to return in 2010.

It was only a matter of time .

Peterson joined Jared Allen and others last offseason in attempting to persuade Favre to come back for one more season, and it's no different this year, especially after Minnesota came so close to a Super Bowl.

Except, this time around it's a tad different.

True, Peterson wants Favre back for 2010 for one more crack at a Super Bowl, but according to the Minneapolis Star Tribune, he's getting greedy.

Peterson reportedly wants Favre for two more seasons, feeling that the Vikings have the talent on both sides of the ball, particularly with Favre in place, to win back-to-back Super Bowls.

"I think we could win back-to-back Super Bowls," said Peterson. "I'd take one. But the talent we have on both sides of the football with Favre...I feel like we can go as high as we want."

Perhaps he's right.

But considering his franchise is 0-4 in the Super Bowl and hasn't been there in over 30 years, I'd suggest concentrating on one at a time.

Brad Childress and the rest of the Vikings' brass has remained quiet about Favre and the possibility of a return, citing the fact that the veteran quarterback has earned the time to ponder his decision.

Favre is scheduled to appear on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno on March 4th, and while it's unlikely the future Hall of Famer announces his decision there, perhaps he'll shed some light on which way he is leaning.
