you guys will just call me a Favre fister


Can you imagine what we call you in our minds but never write? :thumbleft:

All I saw was replays, but he looked adequate but a lot slower than I remember. He is still an improvement over what they had at quarterback.

I thought he looked good, and their offense looked better than it has - I was shocked that Chilly actually threw a couple Wildcat looks in there - must have picked them up from some other coach.

But.

1. He is not mobile at this point. At all. Much less so than when he played in Green Bay. He looks like Kosar out there at this point.

2. He went down like a rag doll if an opposing player so much as tapped him. I really hope that's an attempt not to get hurt, though his low shot on that safety would suggest he's not too worried about that. All I know is that he never went down that easy w/ the Pack (Strahan's record aside).

3. He took some pretty wicked shots - they need to work on protecting him, because it's pretty clear that opposing defenses are looking to be the guys who put him on the shelf. Max protect, whatever it takes - he's going to get beat all to hell out there.

I think he'll improve once he rounds into some sort of shape, but this is clearly a different Favre - that's not necessarily a bad thing for the Vikes, though, assuming he recognizes his limits and plays within them.

Overall, I think he looked good. Didn't scare me, though - that's what Peterson is for (criminy, he's just a beast).

This is the single biggest concern I have for Brett's health.. his legs aren't under him yet (imagine that, skipping camp and all) and they are going to have protection break downs.

I hate to say it, but I think his "ironman" streak ends this season.. either that or the Vikings as a team will suffer for it..

On a side note.. Minnesota papers are saying TJ is the odd man out at QB for the Vikes.. "schism" or not.. the Vikes are punting on the subject. ;)

Agreed. Part of conditioning is getting your body in shape to handle the day-to-day abuse that comes with playing football. It's not just getting your arm in shape or whatever, it's getting your overall conditioning level up to a point where the bumps and bruises aren't so bad as they'd normally be. He's had NONE of that this year, and that kickass O line isn't keeping him very clean thus far. He could easily end up hurt, and then what do they do? If I'm TJack I'd tell 'em to go spit if they asked me to step in.

Did anyone else hear the cut by Chris Carter at halftime about the miss to Harvin in the endzone?

Those high school WR down in Mississippi must be faster than Harvin.

Cracked me up at the time.

Pretty much the same feeling everyone else has, he was good and efficient. Someone mentioned the deep throw that was praised as giving his receiver a chance to make a play and reading the coverage right. Man that pissed me off. Safety help was there and if that ball hangs a split second longer it's picked off and Favre would have been blasted for throwing one up. God I hate announcers. Anyway, I think they're very beatable for us this year.

Considering this offense has only been together for what? 13 days.. Favre was more than adequate. Should of had that TD to Percy, but like the announcers said.. Percy is a rookie, and he looked it (caught a ball just short of the first down, didn't have the 'go get the ball' mentality on that end zone ball, etc).

I'm not worried about Favre getting better with this offense. I'm more worried about HBs missing their blocks on all out blitzes. The one sack that Favre had, AP made wrong reads and went to the outside to help the T block and left the inside blitzer go untouched. Hopefully he gets that cleared up.

Not every team is going to blitz the Vikings that much during the season, either. So, as far as I'm concerned.. They just need to continue working on their chemistry.
