... I wouldn't be surprised if the Packers put him through untold ridiculousness in regards to his physical condition. It's no secret that Favre did not employ the personal trainer this summer that he's used the past three off seasons. That alone might give McCarthty all the ammo he needs to say "We're concerned about Brett's conditioning" etc and use it as a stalling tactic, thereby keeping him off the practice field, in the training room and away from the public and the press, all while giving Thompson and his staff three or four extra days to strike a deal. You can see the groundwork for this being laid in Bob McGinn's latest:
The first order of business for Favre, 38, will be a physical examination. He has chronic problems with a hip and an ankle.
"We haven't seen Brett since the last game," McCarthy said. "He looks like he's in good shape. We have one or two options: put him through the individual part of it, put him in the rehab or pre-rehab program."
It was McCarthy's understanding that Favre didn't work this off-season with the performance specialist who lived with the Favre family for eight weeks in 2007. Favre is known to have been working out with a high school team in Hattiesburg, Miss.
The Packers could require Favre to work with their training staff for as many days as they deem necessary if they decide his conditioning is deficient.
