The Vikings would be stupid not to take him back in whatever fashion he wants. They have TJ in the background, what a joke. They should have won on Sunday, easily, they outgained them by like 200 yards and had TWO red zone fumbles. Plus a red zone fumble in their own end. They were the better team IMO, why not give it another shot?

But I think he will be in a lot of pain the next few days and he will need to decide whether its worth it. As for training camp, he's proved that stuff doesn't matter. Not really scientific but based on the Vikings boards, it seems like by far a majority of their fans want him back.

:pottytrain2: He needs to prove he can play a play-off game without making the same mistake of turning the ball over and thus he has to come back in order to leave on a positive note. Will that happen? Who knows. Least of all Brett at this time.

I think Favre should undergo exploratory brain surgery in the off season.

Perhaps this procedure would allow scientists to understand why some highly sucessful people have giant brain farts in crucial situations.

He said he didn't have anything to prove both times he retired, yet came back, then says he proved the doubters wrong.

You can only say 'i have nothing to prove, but i proved the doubters wrong' so many times before it looks foolish to say.

If they do this, they better bring in a good proctologist to locate his head, first.

I just read in the Minneapolis Star Tribune, this quote.

Coach Brad Childress said he does not know if Favre will return, adding, I told him to go home and lick your wounds and Ill do the same"


So.....Childress is going to lick Brett's wounds????
(Yes....i took it out of context)LOLOL!!!

Tavaris Jackson, may of made some improvements, but he's not even in Aaron Rodgers' class. The Packers had something special in Rodgers sitting on the bench and he flashed it in preseason quite a bit and then against a very good Cowboys' defense in the regular season. Fans were surprised, but coaches weren't.

If Jackson had been "THE GUY", he would've been the Vikings' starting QB this season. For Minnesota to go out and get Favre, tells me that they had a lot of concerns with Jackson.

Apples and oranges. Of course at the time, I thought GB should of taken Favre back, but the situations were different. I felt Rodgers would be good to efficient. Not THIS good, but decent enough. Jackson, I feel like is going to be a career backup. If Favre wants back, Childress should take him back.

Why do people even care anyway? Is there a Warner watch? You want him to make a decision after a game like that. If he doesn't care, his coach doesn't care, his organization doesn't care, his teammates don't care, why is the media so obsessed with this? Because everyone will read for some reason evne though no one "cares". Its the funniest thing.

People care because he's one of the best players to ever play the game. The idea of watching football on a Sunday or whatever without Favre is something a ton of fans have not been able to imagine.

As far as "Favre Watch"

He's "retired" twice already. Another time, he waited a week until the NFL Draft to make his decision. He's waited into free agency before. In a lot of ways, Favre is as much part of the drama that surrounds him as is the media.

Warner has already said his piece and said he wouldn't drag it out because he couldn't put the organization through that mess.

Obvioulsy I care because I think he is entertaining and the NFL is 100X better with him as he provides hype. But I just don't get why so many people keep such a close eye on "Favre Watchs". Especially if he's not a Packer. Who cares, he's proved over and over again that whatever he says doesn't matter. The media eats it up (AND relies on it), he loves the attention and everyone will read EVERY news flash, so why do people get worked up about Favre Watch is annoying?

From a Viking fan standpoint..

Yes, I'd welcome Favre back.

No, I have no problem with the 'will he-won't he' talk. Pssst.. Guess what Packer fans? We knew what we were getting into when we signed him. We are very well aware of how he likes time to make up his mind. Meanwhile, he won't thow a pissing fit when/if we go into free agency/draft for a QB. It's a win-win, despite the chants of "Feel our pain Queen fans!!!!"

T-Jack has expressed how he wants to stay in Minnesota. Will he? I don't know.. is there a team out there dumb/desperate enough to give him an obnoxious offer? If not, then T-Jack will remain a Viking.

I can't think of any more 'issues' to touch on, so that is all.
