Minnesota Vikings: Denial is not a river in Egypt

It looks like the Minnesota Vikings are circling their wagons after ESPN reported on dissent in the locker room over the ongoing Brett Favre Circus Sideshow. The St. Paul Pioneer Press interviewed thirteen players who denied the story. Coach Brad Childress and star RB Adrian Peterson both deny the story.
Either way, this story shows the havoc caused by the signing of Favre has caused. If the stories are true, the there's more dissent over who would be the better QB instead of Favre then there is actually supporting Favre. Some players reportedly supporting Tavaris Jackson, others support Sage Rosenfels. Farve's first preseason performance arguably didn't help things.
It's the kind of atmosphere that doesn't sound conductive to a winning season. Favre can fix this obviously by getting the job done and leading the team to victory. Questions still abound on whether the Favre that thrilled many a Packer will show up or the Jet QB that sputtered to a 9-7 season last year. Anything close to the latter and the 2009 season could go from the theater of the absurd to a dark carnival of the soul.
