"Really? That’s nice," said OLB Tamba Hali when told Favre was joining the Vikings and had practiced with them on Tuesday. When he was told Favre was likely to start against the Chiefs, Hali said "Really? Huh." Then he shrugged and walked away.

"It would be a distraction here," linebacker Mike Vrabel said. "Somebody just coming in the middle of camp, however many two-a-days we had, however many full-padded practices — that’s certainly not what we’d be looking for.
"I don’t think that would work."
Cassel’s struggles began during an intrasquad scrimmage two weeks ago when he committed three turnovers. He has had a problem with turnovers since and lost a fumble during last week’s preseason opener against Houston.
Asked whether Cassel has been the best quarterback in camp, coach Todd Haley deferred.
“I think I’ll hold out on answering that right now,” he said.
Nevertheless Mr. Irrelevant XXXIV, a kicker for the Kansas City Chiefs, will be a part of the hoopla when Brett Favre plays his first game in a Vikings uniform at Minnesota at 5 p.m.
While most eyes will be on Favre, the quarterback who once again came out of retirement Tuesday, many Chiefs fans will still be rooting for their kicker.

The competition is heated and as a Division III player, Studebaker didn't benefit from the topflight coaching and instruction that players from BCS schools enjoy. But Chiefs coach Todd Haley is happy with Studebaker's progress, and very happy with the way he played in last weekend's 16-10 loss to Houston in the preseason opener.

Ah, memories. The Raiders have gone 24-72 the last six years under the watchful eyes of coaches named Callahan, Turner, Shell, Kiffin and Cable. They have had JaMarcus Russell, Andrew Walter, Josh McCown, Daunte Culpepper, Aaron Brooks, Ronald Curry, Kerry Collins, Marques Tuiasosopo, Rich Gannon and Rick Mirer start games at quarterback over this beautiful period. There have been countless preposterous losses and two books worth of hysterical moments.

Pro Bowl defensive end Jared Allen did not practice Tuesday -- a fact that largely was glossed over given Brett Favre's presence on the field -- a day after Allen limped off the field after suffering what appeared to be an injury to his right ankle or foot.

kb_kcstar All I'm saying is, Haley made it a point to say today that he's not obligated to play anyone because of a newly minted contract.
kb_kcstar Lots of QB and Chiefs talk going on tomorrow morning at 8 in Kansas City. Hit 810-AM or 810whb.com. I'll ask Nate why he's all mad.

CalebHowe: So Favre is starting against chiefs Friday. You know ... Pending death panel review of course.
kybailbonds: This bailbond co supports Kansas City Chiefs.
jgarten: So maybe the chiefs could have waited a season before giving Cassel a monster deal.
