The Vikings welcome back familiar faces

You think getting Brett Favre back into the lineup is the key to the Vikings making another playoff run? Patrick Reusse of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune might disagree with you, and he makes a pretty compelling case.

It’s because Minnesota likely will return all 22 players, assuming Favre pulls on the uniform again, who made most of the starts at their respective positions last year.

How rare is it for the Vikings – hell, for anybody – to accomplish this? Writes Reusse, “It's astounding in this era of free agency to see the Vikings positioned to have the same 22 make the most starts for two consecutive seasons. There was incredible roster stability during the Vikings' glory years from 1969 through 1977, yet there were never two consecutive seasons when Bud Grant had the same 22 get the most starts.”

Not surprisingly, Reusse also predicts – in so many words – that this will be the year Minnesota wins the Super Bowl.
