Joe Webb visits Favre (don't get scared)

Hopefully, B. Favre and J. Webb won't have a Minnesota reunion this year (US Presswire).Posted by Josh Katzowitz

After I point you in the direction of this Scout.com article, please don’t get scared. As far as we know, Brett Favre doesn’t have any plans to return for another season (his brother has already opined that he thinks there’s a 99 percent chance Favre will stay retired).

BUT …

Whenever Favre is in the news, the questions will always surface.

That said, Favre has been working with (non-retired) Vikings QB Joe Webb in Hattiesburg, Miss., for the “past few weeks.” Again, don’t be frightened. We don’t think Favre is gearing up for another comeback; we’re pretty sure he’s just helping out an old teammate.

“It’s great to have a person like that as my contact,” Webb said. “He can still sling it.”

BUT …

As Scout writes:

"While conspiracy theorists may point to the meeting as an opportunity for Favre to see the new Vikings playbook -- Webb may have brought one with him to Hattiesburg -- but, for the rest of us, it looks like a win-win situation for two guys from two different generations giving back something to the other."

Unless, of course, both guys end up going for the same thing -- ahem, the Vikings starting QB job. Which would, of course, be a scary proposition.

Joe Webb visits Favre (don't get scared)

Who is this Favre kid? Seems like a real go-getter, a solid up-and-comer!

Joe Webb visits Favre (don't get scared)

Why should we be scared?

Whenever Favre is in the news, the questions will always surface.

Why?

Young Joe Webb spending time with Favre seems like a smart move to me. Webb was obviously able to build some kind of rapport with Favre and has the opportunity to pick up some of the nuances of the WCO from a guy who spent most of his 20 year career playing in this system.

Even with Ponder on board Webb still has an opportunity to prove himself to new offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave. One thing for certain, the Vikings won't be running the same predictable offense that they ran under Childress and Bevell. Musgrave is well versed in the West Coast offense but has a much broader understanding of offensive schemes than his predecessor. Webb's skill set could lend itself to this approach and his one year of experience and some extra time spent with Farve sure can't hurt.

The Vikings need to bring back Favre because he was fantastic last year, and looks to be on the upswing up his career.
