It's getting that time I'm gonna need a decision...

Where are you 4? I'm getting anxious to know whether you're coming back or the dreaded NOT?

We should know something in the next couple weeks, hopefully sooner. I've been sitting on my hands, a patient Viking, trying to wait it out with optimism. Let's go Brett! I'm ready for 2010/11 magic!

"Count Vikings owner Zygi Wilf among those confident Brett Favre will return as the team's starting quarterback this season.

"Right now, he's the starting quarterback of our team," Wilf said Friday as he watched the Vikings go through their first practice of training camp. "So we're in a good position."

Wilf said he has talked to Favre several times this offseason, most recently a couple of weeks ago when coach Brad Childress was visiting Favre in Hattiesburg, Miss. The only time Wilf has been to Hattiesburg, however, was when his private plane picked up Favre last August and brought him to Minnesota.

Childress and Wilf have given Favre all the time he needs to make a decision in the hope that he will return.

"We did the same thing last year, and it turned out to be great for everyone," Wilf said. "I think the same approach of understanding who he is and that his decision is his and his family's. He's our starting quarterback, and we look forward to having him this year."
