A rough return for No. 4

A year ago, like just about everyone else, I figured that Brett Favre didn't need training camp.

Last night was a different story...

Favre looked uncomfortable and out of sync in the Vikings' season-opening loss to the Saints. His receivers corps was battered, but there was another major difference that makes me think I was wrong about the old man and training camp:

The Saints.

Last year, Favre and the Vikings opened the season with games at Cleveland and Detroit. They flattened both of those doormats, then won a nail-biter in their home opener against San Francisco.

The Saints are the defending Super Bowl champs. Last night wasn't a layup. Favre may find his groove in the coming weeks, but it won't be easy.

Chances are, it won't be as magical as last year.
