Other than the humor aspect, I care not if he plays or not...


But to be honest.. there is a small part of me that is reveling in the drama Brett is once again stirring.. it will do nothing to help the Vikes and Vikesrule this coming season.. I smell defeat.

Here's the latest from the Minneapolis Star Tribune on the latest Brett Favre drama. Vikings beat reporter Judd Zulgad, who got this whole thing rolling yesterday, reports that NFL sources tell him the Vikings have offered Favre a package that would pay him up to $20 million to return this year instead of the previously agreed-upon $13 million.

Offering more money shows how desperate the Vikings are and how they know the window of opportunity is closing, FAST.

I agree. We all pretty much know he's going to be on the field this year, that's a no brainer.

If someone wanted to pay me 20 million to kick my ass for 60 minutes playing football 16 times a year, I'll sign that contract faster than Rosie O'Donnell can make a twinkie disappear.

A figure of $20 million borders not on the absurd but on the sublime. We're talking MLB or NBA money here. If we can believe the rumors, the Vikings are mortgaging their (presumably salary-capped) future for one year. Or should we say they're gambling with our team's dollars for a one-year stab at glory?

ESPN and NFL Network should also chip in for that, Favre Watch is so nuts on those two.

hardrocker950 (10h) : Just wonderful - my pick em didn't register....
beast (19h) : I'm not sure if it's still true, but it used to be hard to get sacks on Eli because he'd toss one up when linemen got semi-close (which lead
Zero2Cool (20h) : Slam Eli a lot very early. Once rattled he can't regain composure.
beast (20h) : since slot WRs might be the Packers strength depth/talent wise
beast (20h) : With AR's passing % down field so low, I've been saying they should go with short passes like the Pats used to do, especially since slot WRs
beast (20h) : What's going to be needed against the Giants is OL and DBs (IMO)
Smokey (28-Sep) : Cook(TE) has time to heal, but may not be needed against NYG on Oct 9th .
Zero2Cool (27-Sep) : . Aaron Rodgers has a completion percentage of 33.3 on 10+ air yard passes this season (tied for the lowest in NFL).
Zero2Cool (27-Sep) : High-ankle sprain could sideline Cook

TheKanataThrilla (25-Sep) : Cleveland loses.
The_Green_Ninja (25-Sep) : I swear, Jacksonville's hot weather must be a huge advantage. Kept it super close with the Ravens
TheKanataThrilla (25-Sep) : Su'a Cravens with a big INT. A guy I wanted.
TheKanataThrilla (25-Sep) : Can Cleveland win?
Zero2Cool (25-Sep) : T.J. Lang said after one of Aaron Rodgers' TD passes the Packers quarterback head-butted Lang in excitement and said "I'm back."
