Brett Favre is in the midst of the greatest year of his career, yet the oft-retired/unretired 40-year-old quarterback said he hasn’t even thought about coming back for another season next year.

Brett Favre is in the midst of the greatest year of his career, yet the oft-retired/unretired 40-year-old quarterback said he hasn’t even thought about coming back for another season next year.


“How can I think about next year when we’ve got the Bears coming up this week?” he said.


Favre hinted that he might call it quits if the Vikings (9-1) win the Super Bowl.


 “The only reason I came back was to hopefully lead this team to a championship,” Favre said on a teleconference Wednesday. “Other guys may have said that in the past, but people who know me know that’s the only reason.”


Garza still out


Starting right guard Roberto Garza (ankle) was the only Bear held out of practice Wednesday. Coach Lovie Smith said he was hopeful Garza would practice today. Defensive tackle Tommie Harris (knee), safety Kevin Payne (back) and backup tight ends Desmond Clark (neck) and Kellen Davis (ankle) were limited in practice.


Minnesota held no one out of practice Wednesday, but receiver Bernard Berrian (hamstring), star running back Adrian Peterson (ankle) and cornerback Antoine Winfield (foot) were limited. Winfield, Minnesota’s best cornerback, is expected to play Sunday for the first time in five weeks.


Blocking out rumors


Chicago’s losing five of its last six games has sparked speculation that the Bears may make major coaching staff changes at the end of the season, but the Bears say they’ve paid no attention.


“I just look at Minnesota film,” said offensive coordinator Ron Turner, the No. 1 rumor target. “I put that film on and I’m not going to think about anything else.”


“Minnesota is enough to keep you occupied,” agreed Lovie Smith. “You just have to focus on the task at hand.”


A Bear in the kitchen


Defensive tackle Anthony Adams invites all the Bears single players without family in the area to his house for Thanksgiving dinner.


“I’ve got my turkey brine already. I’m Chef Adams (today),” he said.


He tells his teammates to “just bring your appetite” and to “come on over, get some turkey, play some charades and Taboo.”
