From a chat with Vikings beat writer Chip Scoggins.

Quote:
Chip Scoggins: Favre said after the game that this might be the best team he's ever played on. Obviously it's still early, but you can see he has developed a nice rhythm with all his receivers. The throw down the sideline to Rice was a good example. He placed that perfectly on his back hip/shoulder.


This might be somewhat standard with Favre, but it just really struck me the wrong way. If I recall correctly, he played on some team with Reggie White, Desmond Howard etc. One of the best defenses in recent history combined with one of the best offensen and an amazing special teams unit and he goes out and makes a statement like this.

I don't mean for this to turn into a Brett Favre bash thread (Although seen the history of these threads, it'll be just that soon enough), but this is either very stupid, or he's really messing with this GB fans.

I wouldn't argue that statement too much. Packers never had a RB like Peterson. They have WR that can get open because of the attention to Peterson. They've had a great run defense for a long time now.

So, for the Vikings QB to say that, well, I don't much argue. The only thing they lack is coaching staff, but when you have that talent, even a bozo can coach it to win games.

My point is that this is damn right near disrespectfull. Our 1996 SB team had a better O-line, a better overall defense and better receivers. He now has a better RB and he crowns them the best team he's ever played with?

Does that mean that Jared Allen is as as good as Reggie White? Pat Williams is as good as Gilbert Brown? Visanthe Shiancoe is as good as Mark Chmura? Doug Evans, Leroy Butler, you get my point. Or does he make this statement based on Peterson alone?

I asume he didn't take in account the coaching staff, because Chilly can't touch Holmgren, Frazier's great, but no Shurmur and Bevell has a lot of work to do to be compared with Lewis.

Packers of 96 would put it too this team IMO.

The 90's and 70's were the best of the best. No doubt about it IMO. This decade has seen a drop of in talent, although you can start to tell that the next decade is probably going to be really good especially the level of play you see at the college level.

My point is the Vikings look great, but at the sametime, they aren't playing the 49ers, Cowboys, Broncos, Chiefs. They aren't defending Barry Sanders, Emmit Smith, or Steve Young and etc....

Favre will say things just to give a little confidence to his team. Like remember when he said in 06 about that team being the most talented he ever played on. He was full of crap and he knew that.

Now with that said do I think he believes that this is the best team he's played on? I do because this is the best team he's played on of most recently. I think it's probably fourth.

Although if you take Favre in his prime and put him on that team (Minnesota), then it's pretty close. Top three. Green Bay's coaching was phenomenal in the 90's and like the post above says, Minnesota's can't even touch it.

The 96 and 97 Packers teams were better than this Vikes team and possibly the 1995 packers. Other than that, I think Bretts right. They're balanced and consistent. I looked for a let down this week vs the Rams but it didn't happen. Shows maturity to me. This team should win 12 - 14 games depending on injuries and get home field. Brett isn't making the big mistakes like he did when he was younger so they should be in every game and I dont see a team that is much better than them if at all.

Favre cannot win.

How do we know that he didn't just say that to give the young guys like Sydney Rice, Percy Harvin, Adrian Peterson, etc. some confidence? How do we know this wasn't a tactic of a guy who's been around the league for a while and using his leadership skills?

You don't think its going to help guys that have been in the league 1-3 years to hear "Favre thinks this team is as talented as the 1996 GB Packers".

I would bet a lot on Reggie White coming up to Favre at some point during 1995 or 1996 and telling him "your one or if not the best I've ever seen and I've seen Montana, etc". Why wouldn't you, it would mean a lot coming from a guy like Reggie White.

if he is saying it to give the guys confidence, is he being honest or lying about it?

Exactly, how many people were up in arms then saying "thats disrespectful to the 1996 Packers". If you did, then yes, you should complain about this too. But I bet most people thought it was a good move to try to give them some confidence.

I wasn't into football back them. At least, not like I am now, but I would've found that disrespectfull, as well.

Big difference here is that he has to know himself that this is like throwing salt into the Packers fans wounds, playing for the Vikings and all. The man is not utterly retarded. He knows what kind of impact this could make.

2006: Favre sees 'most talented' Packers team of his tenure - ""I really feel like this is, as far as talent is concerned, the most talented team that I've been a part of as a whole," Favre said Monday morning."

2009: Favre: "This is the best team I've ever been on" - I think physically and from a talent level, this is the best team Ive ever been on, Favre told reporters in the postgame.

1999: Nov. 7, 1999: Bears 14, Packers 13
- "We have really great talent in this offense, and great talent on this team.

2008: Brett Favre To New York Jets - "He's convincing," Favre said, drawing a smile from Tannenbaum. "I know this team had a lot of talent."

2004: Favre's Exemplary Journey - "Talent-wise, we're as talented as any team in the league," Favre said. "We're as talented as the '96 Super Bowl team"

Hello people it's a fucking catchphrase. He's the QB of the team, therefore the leader which means he's trying to keep his team pumped after a 5-0 start to the season because--as he knows all too well--a team can derail at any second. People are blowing this all out of proportion too. Obviously the best team he was on was 1997-1998 because they won the fucking Super Bowl, which is a hands-down "you are the best team in the league" trophy.

That's pretty sad, if we turned in as poor of a performance as we did and lost by 7 to the best team the old man has ever played on.

Just goes along with my theory that this is a doppleganger and all that's left of our HOF quarterback is a pile of digested goo lying on a forest floor somewhere.
