Yeah, I haven't found anything new. I think the fact that now Appeals would have to overturn the decision for them to miss time, there is a good chance now that they've avoided suspension. But I'm no lawyer, so take my opinion with a grain of salt.
Favre being a Viking hurts the cause of the defense, though IMO, especially if points allowed figures into the scoring of your league. He's going to give up on average probably one extra short field for the opposing team per game. Each game, he will score a lot of points or give up a lot of turnovers, neither of which help that defense. He's not a ball-control-then-punt kind of QB. I think they are probably top 5 but I don't know about spending much extra $$ on them.
