Brett Favre Talked To Vikings QBs Tarvaris Jackson, Sage Rosenfels Before Returning

Brett Favre's return has predictably caused a lot of folks in Minnesota to be very happy.

Two guys that may not be so happy are Tarvaris Jackson and Sage Rosenfels.

If Favre hadn't returned, one of those two would have been the starting quarterback for a team coming off of a NFC Championship appearance.

Favre said in his press conference Wednesday afternoon that he did talk to both of them before and after making his decision.

T-Jack, Sage and I have had good conversations. They want to play. They can't be high-fiving and being happy, I know that. But they both handled it extremely well. I have talked to them directly and before I knew what I was going to do.

On Tuesday, Jackson said of Favre's return, "Honestly, I don't really care." He hasn't directly said it, but he clearly can't be too excited about Favre's return, even if it does increase the Vikings Super Bowl chances.

I wanted everyone to be all in and I think that's why we've been successful here. It's a good football team but there's a lot of chemistry. More than talent, the chemistry has to come together for any team to be successful.

Chemistry is important but having eight Pro Bowlers doesn't hurt either.
