Allen: With or without Favre, goals don’t change

The Vikings began training camp this year much like they did last year — with QB Tarvaris Jackson taking the first-team reps.

While not everyone seemed like they wanted to talk about Brett Favre on Friday, our man on the groundĀ Steve Wyche checkedĀ in with several players, who maintain it’s fine whenever Favre makes his decision.

“I’d be a liar if I sat here and told you he didn’t help us get there,” Jared Allen said. “I mean, it’s Brett Favre. He’s phenomenal. If he shows up when we get done in a couple weeks with camp, or if he shows up whenever, great. We welcome him. He absolutely helps us get there. But our goals will never change. Whether it’s Sage [Rosenfels] or Tarvaris or whoever it is, or Brett, those goals are always the same. We still expect to be back in the championship game, except this time playing for a Super Bowl ring.”
