You are so misinformed. The Vikings will be worse with Favre?! You must be crazy. Have you even watch the recent Vikings QBs? LOL apparently not. The Packers are in big trouble.

i can't tell if this is a forum for PACKER FANS or a brett favre fan forum, because those are clearly two distinct things.

Jblock, there's a reason why there is a specific Brett Favre sub-forum -- to keep all the Favre talk corralled in one spot, to keep it from sprawling all over the forum. This is, first, foremost, and always a Packers Fan Forum.

Naw naw naw.

You got it all wrong, son! lol

We've always been, first and foremost, Viking fans. The addition of YOUR beloved QB to our team excites a few of us, thus why this forum is hoppin' with Viking fans.

You're right.. It IS out of the Vikings philosophy to throw 30-40 times a game. Which is why it isn't going to happen. As much as the average NFL fan likes to think this team is now Favre's team.. It isn't. It still is, and will continue to be, Adrian Peterson's team.

Favre came to Minnesota because he won't HAVE to throw 30-40 times a game. Hense the theory of it being a 'match made in heaven'. He'll be asked to make some throws.. but not consistently, like was almost required of him in GB and eventually in NY.

We'll see how this turns out soon enough.


but can he be that q/b that WONT throw?

Just look at how he performed with out Holmgren/Mccarthy

He needs a guy to control him

But as you say we will see


That's what I am thinking - we all know Favre has a throw first mentatlity.

Right and Childress has not shown in any capacity that he will be able to keep Favre reigned in. This is going to be an interesting thing to watch.

You guys can't seriously think that Favre is a downgrade from T Jackson?

Honestly?

Favre isn't the QB of the 3 MVPs in the row but T Jackson? I'm excited as a fan of Favre to see him play another year but as a Packers fan I feel that the Vikings improved their QB situation and it will be harder for us to win the division. AP is an absolute BEAST. And now that he has a QB that even has the threat of being a good QB, he's going to be even more deadly.
