Time For Healing

At last the firing of Brad Childress as coach, finally the last straw in the Green Bay game. Time for healing now. Leslie Frazier may or may not be the permanent coach, but he sure could not be any worse. They could now go 3 and 3 and maybe 4 and 2 in the remaining games left. Still 6 and 10 or 7 and 9 would be a big letfown from last season. Looks like Favre is really going to make his last stand. And I really am a Favre the quarterback fan. But he is at the finish line of the end of his career, and closing faster each game. And whether Jackson is the answer or not, probably not, we need a quarterback for the future. And that should have been happening during this season. Getting Vick would be a good idea, and there are some decent quarterbacks upcoming in the draft. What happened to Joe Webb? Again time for healing. The most stable position now appears to be running back. Peterson and Gerhart are going to be a good combo next season. At wide receiver Harvin is a great athelete that should be utilized more. And we know how the loss of Rice has affected Favre, but how will the loss of Favre affect Rice? On the OL I am thinking half of the problem was coaching, but they need more depth in case it was not. You could not convince anyone from the stats that this is one of the best DL's in the league. And part of the blame is the poor offense and the other part the poor coaching. The defense should be fine, except for help at DB. But overall it is a new starting point now, a time to prepare for the future of this team, and heal the many wounds left over.

The Good, The Bad, and ..........

Here we are again this evening. All watching and listening as Brett Favre returns to the state of Minnesota. Ahh, just so bittersweet. The Good. Great for the Vikings, as they have again one of the legends at quaterback. And Favre will do better than Jackson or Rosenfels, more than likely. So from the stand point of potential wins and playoff status, I am again pleased. That is the sweet part of the deal. The Bad. The bitter parts however are more than just a single issue. How will that ankle hold up, and for how long? I think the ankle will not be able to play an entire season, and if you include playoff games, even more so. How will Favre himself hold up, and for how long? Well he made it through the full season, including playoffs, last season. But he does have the ankle to worry about now, and he is another yeear older, and he always seems to make that one mistake in the playoffs. Favre, the football player, I like and he is one the best all time. Favre the person, not so much. He was recently listed as one of the top 50 jerks, and rightfully so. He has again missed all of the workouts and training, and the first game of preseason. Does he really need it? Probably not. But he doesnt deserve to start on opening day than. Jackson and Rosenfels may not be the best, but they and all the other Vikings have worked hard the last couple of months. And it showed in the win over St. Louis. I hope Favre will win the Super Bowl this season, but for the Vikings and not for him.
