Love him. Or hate him. Farve to the Vikings ?

Posted on: May 5, 2009 12:30 am
It's been well read that some of you love Brett Farve.  And some of you will even admit it in public nowdays.  Others have this gut wrenching reaction when he comes up in a discussion. Or a post.  Either way, it's safe to say your emotions are on one far swinging side of the pendulm or the other.  But, and please don't hold this against me personally, I would say Brett will be back in the NFL this year.  Like it. Hate it.  Either way, the media will have a frenzy it seems.

If you're a Vikings fan, would you be happy ?  Or, gosh forbid, very unhappy.  PO'd even ?  We don't know what we don't know.  Whomever is behind the center will have some weapons to throw to.  After the obligatory handoffs to you know who.  

The NFC would be a totally different division competition, and league competition than his previous comeback trail.  Bears, Packers, and the Lions for a chance to attend the playoffs.

Any thoughts ?

Brett Favre would make the Packers-Vikings rivalry more internse and more interesting than the border war already is.  Favre is better than anyone they currently have in Minnesota, even at the age of 39.  He blew his chances of coming back to the Packers a year ago in the whole debacle with Ted Thompson, not to mention the team (Packers) had young-gun Aaron Rodgers at the helm.  I think a part of him wants to stick it to the Pack and Thompson.

If Favre wants to play, let him play for the Vikes.  He would make their back field a lethal tandem with Adrian Peterson complementing him.  The division would still be familiar with him, just not in purple. 

The bottom line is Favre is a competitor, and he will do whatever it takes to win.  He's not afraid to thread the needle into triple coverage to make the winning throw.  The man is relentless and still has one of the strongest arms in the NFL. 

Pending his shoulder X-rays, Good luck Brett.

heh heh heh... 

Mudsville, I wondered if my lack of spell check would be uncovered.  Then again, would spell check flag that ?  lol.  I seems the dance has resumed.  The Vikings brass are coming forth.  The Jets fans are feeling like the date left after the prom before the party starts.  The Packers brass are keeping silent in the public's eye.  But what a PR boon it would be for that division.  It will be interesting.

I am a Vikings fan but I am indifferent over the possibility of Brett Favre playing for us.  I do think he would help the offense but I think his presence would detract from other team issues.  I feel that the best choice for the Vikings would have been Jeff Garcia, a proven veteran team player to mentor Tavaris Jackson and lead the offensive weapons.  Tavaris Jackson is still young and I feel another year of development would prove/disprove his value as a starting quarterback.  Brad Childress is walking a fine line and will probably be gone if the Vikings display sub par performance.  Brett Favre would probably help the team this year but we would be left with Childress's conservative play calling and the same quarterback issues when Brett Favre decides to play retirement card again at the end of the season.

How can we have Brett Favre without John Madden?  Madden will probably come out of retirement just to do Brett Favre games.   Because, as you know what John Madden says..."Because Brett Favre is....well Brett Favre!"
