Favre a Viking, will he help?

Posted on: August 18, 2009 5:25 pm
First off I want you all to know, I live in Green Bay, born and raised here. I am a huge Packer fan, and love what Brett brought to Green Bay. I am really looking forward to a most exciting season especially the two Packer, Viking games. To all you Viking fans who think this is your answer to a superbowl, well dont hold your breath. I remember Brett playing some of his worst games in domes. Not only Minnesota, but Dallas as well. He has always stuggled in domes against subpar teams, including DETROIT! Not only that but we all know more injuries occurr on artificial turf. A few hard sacks and well Id hate to say it, but the consecutive start streak ends this year with the Vikings hopes of a superbowl victory. Dont get me wrong I do not want to see Favre or anyone else get injured, but the man will be 40. I do wish him the best of luck, and if by some chance they do make it to the superbowl I will be cheering for Brett, and id hate to say it, the vikings. I know Green Bay will be ready for the compition. Good luck Brett and vikings, we will see you soon.

Favre a Viking, will he help?

I think Favre will help as long as he can stay healthy.

We are not looking for or asking Favre to be his old self.  All we need is an QB that can run the team with confidence and actually make the defense worry about the possibility of a passing game.  Everyone knows we have a good "run" offensive line and a great back in Adrian Peterson. The Vikes also have a core of pretty good receivers with Berrian, Wade, Rice (if he can stay healthy) and now the addition of Harrison.  What we really needed is someone that can through an acurate short pass, the occassional deep ball, and most importantly know WHEN to do either.

The coaching staff still needs to emphasize the run, and use the pass to keep the defense honest (limit the whole 8 men in the box scenerio). As long as he plays within himself (not thinking he is 30 again) and stays healthy we should be in good shape.
