Vikings owner wants Favre back in 2010
Zygi Wilf, the owner of the Vikings, believes all the talk about any bad relationship between coach Brad Childress and quarterback Brett Favre has been blown out of proportion and isn't any concern of his.
Wilf would rather talk about the fact that the Vikings are 11-3 and have won back-to-back division titles for the first time since the 1970s.
"To win our division back-to-back for the first time in 31 years is a great achievement," Wilf said. "It's reached a milestone to where we want to be this time of year, and right now we control our own destiny.
"We win four and we're in the Super Bowl. We're going to have to take it one day at a time, but it's great to be in this position, and all the talk about us -- whatever the talk's [between Favre and Childress] been going on the past week -- has definitely been blown out of proportion. We're going to work hard to win this game [against the Bears on Monday night] and move on."
Naturally, Wilf wanted to win the games at Arizona and Carolina, but he realizes that every team is trying to play its best against the Vikings.
"You know, every team is tough," Wilf said. "And every team wants to prove, no matter how their season went, that when they play a team of the Vikings' caliber, they want to show everyone that they can be among the best. So every game is important, whether you're shooting for the playoffs or whether you want to prove to the other teams that you can stand up with them even though you might be out.
"I think we've had a great year, and we have a lot more to prove. Our goal has been, and always will be, to get that championship game and move on to the Super Bowl. We couldn't ask for it to be in a better position than we are right now."
As for the future of Favre, Wilf said he will do everything he can to bring back the 40-year-old quarterback next year.
Wilf is even optimistic about a stadium being built for the Vikings.
