Best comment yet from Brockington42 at the HQ " A real fan would understand. I do. I understand Favre is a traitorous son of a bitch and when he faces our defense I'm going to hope they take him out of the game, the same as I'd wish upon any other QB of the enemy.

He was a packer QB...now he gets no special favors . Game on

I don't see how this puts the Vikes over the top. I see this move as more of an act of desperation by Chilly.


Let's see what the Bears fans at my other board are saying...

Did I miss the week when the Vikings became the super team in the NFC? No disrespect, but I'm much more worried about the Packers than the Vikings.

Truth. The packers are 10x better than the vikings

It definitely helps Green Bay that they are trying to run a legit football team and not a circus.

i know...let's ask marstc how it works...yeah, yeah...


This is how it works.

2008 Division Champions with Gus Frerotte/Tarvaris Jackson

2009 NFC Champions with a HOF QB that actually knows what he is doing.

Make sense yet?


What does the Vikings and Cardinals have in common?

I don't get it, although you are right, Warner certianly knows what he is doing.

Just older future hof q/b

Think of this folks which is very scary, Brett went to the Jets last year and helped Jones become the NFL's leading rusher because teams planned to stop the pass. Now he goes to the Vikes with the NFL's best running back so i'm predicting you will see AP go over the 2000 yard mark.
The people that ask how can this make the Vikes better just have the blinders on and are scared of the thought of the Vikes in the Super Bowl.
Then again i think this is where all the hate is coming from towards Lord Favre.

Do you think the improved running game had anything to do with the offensive lineman they signed last off season, or was it all Brett's doing? I'm just curious, I know Brett makes a hell of a dive at a linebackers knees and all, but come on Haze.

Now the Vikings have regressed in O-line if you ask me. But I know, the media has put the purple haze out there in Viking land leading the lemmings to the cliff. Mike Mayock may actually have to retire when it all comes crumbling down for lack of credibility.

These posts of yours are what always set me back when I'm trying to actually take what you say seriously.

a. Jones was not the leading rusher in the NFL last year.
b. Favre was coming off his best year of this decade when he went to the Jets. Last year he threw 22 TD 22 INT.
c. Favre was not dealing with post-op fatigue and a rotator cuff tear when he went to the Jets.
d. Favre will not overshadow AP in the eyes of D coordinators. It's an impossibility.

But if you want to keep playing psychologist and telling us what we are seeing and how we are feeling deep down about this whole thing, go right ahead. Just realize that what you're saying when you psychoanalyze is unjustified bullshit.

my bad he was the leading rusher in the AFC and is now getting the leading rusher in the NFL. So you don't think the teams won't game plan to stop the pass at all? If that happens heaven save us because Lord Favre will think he can play for another 30 years :(

I don't think I've ever seen a football game where a team didn't defend the pass at all. I think the focus will still be on stopping AP. For the Packers D, the focus will be on stopping AP and confusing the QB as much as possible with multiple looks, motions and pressures.

FAIL. As always. I know you live for playing devil's advocate, but you might at least construct your arguments out of something more sturdy than tissue paper.

There are - TOPS - 3-4 posters here who are "hating" at all. The rest of us have already said we wish him luck, at least when he's not playing the Pack. FAIL.

Most of us have already clearly stated the reasons that make us feel that there's no guarantee his addition to the team means they're Super Bowl bound, and those reasons are rational and based in reality. FAIL.

And could you please, PLEASE come up with an alternative phrase to "people gots the blinders on"? Please?

In summary: F.A.I.L.

(Oh - I should add that I'm not disagreeing about AD benefiting from this - that's actually the smartest thing you've posted in months. Him having a great year doesn't win the team a Super Bowl, though - he has great years every year.)

I don't think Brett Favre is as effective as he was. He's not the three time MVP anymore. He's a regressing player and dhazer is talking like it's 1995.

Look at his last four years.

Three have been average to bad.

The only good one stands out as a potential fluke. Nobody will say it, but you have to wonder if that was his last go at it which more than likely is the case. I think Favre will put up similar numbers that he did last year. 20 TDs and 20 INTs or something to that extent. Peterson will run for 2,000 yards this year in my opinion, but not because of Brett Favre, but because he's that good. Teams will gameplan to stop him over Favre anyday.

It's not so much that Favre might not be able to beat them, but Minnesota's receivers are also not that good. Even the Jets had better receivers last year.

"Vikings" and "Super Bowl win" in the SAME SENTENCE???
That just makes me laugh.
I'm not afraid of that happening. If Favre is such a big deal for the Vikings, answer this. If AP is the center of their O (which he is) what difference does it make WHO is handing the ball off to him?
I mean.......T-Jack was at least somewhat elusive. Favre is SLOOOOOW now. Thats NOT a knock on him, i mean, he's gonna be 40! What 40 year old QB ISN'T slow? And he's playing on turf most of his games now. My wife (who LOVES Favre) is saying she is VERY worried that he's gonna get hurt badly this year.
Yes....i know......it's not my or her choice if he plays. But that doesn't mean i can't worry about the old man's health. TRUE fans of his WOULD be worried.
If the Vikings win the SB this year with Favre as QB, i'll dance down the street in my underware.
