This was all predicted two months ago

Sadly, this whole Favre-Chilly power struggle and Vikings season collapsing was amazingly well-predicted by Yahoo! Sports writer Michael Silver (yes that same one) over two months ago:

"What if things get ugly early and Childress feels he needs to make a change, either to give his team a spark and/or to get Favre healthy for a potential stretch run? Good luck with that, Chilly.

Remember, there’s also the matter of The Streak. Can you imagine how Favre would react if Childress tried to end his NFL-record string of consecutive starts – even if the Vikings were already out of playoff contention?

Hopefully, for Favre, Childress and the Vikings, this is just a sports columnist fretting over worst-case scenarios, and none of this potential drama will ever come into play. Favre is certainly great enough to overcome these obstacles and surprise us once more, and I’m glad he has the guts and competitive spirit to go for it.

When it comes to encores, though, there’s a simple rule that the best entertainers have been preaching since long before pro football existed: Always leave ‘em wanting more.

And I have this sick feeling that by the time the 2010 season is over, we’ll all be saying, No mas."
