Thanks for the read and the followon breakdown my friend....
Notes: Failed to excite in the decade until Favre arrived in 2009.
What the hell is he talking about? Guess my level of excitement is a bit lower than his. Although not alot of Highs, there was some good stuff, even under Tice.
So are you telling me that this hasn't been the most exciting season of the decade?
2000- 41-0, not predicted as favourites. exciting, but not hugely
2001 - 5-11, missed playoffs (not exciting)
2002 - 6-10, missed playoffs
2003 - 9-7, missed playoffs (exciting in the sense that we got knocked out last second by the cards)
2004 - 8-8, backed into playoffs (exciting regular season STATS, and a great playoff win in Lambeau, but fell short because we really weren't that good)
2005 - 9-7, nothing special really, Brad Johnson led our exitement here
2006 - 6-10, Brad Childress and Brad Johnson led us to an exciting 6-10 record. Peterson filled the void with actual excitement at times
2007 - 8-8, still, no playoffs, Peterson still exciting, but we were not a very good team
2008 - 10-6, Looking better, Defense playing better, and we could rely on the excitement of not knowing who our QB would be. We didn't expect to go far, and we didn't
2009 - 12-4, Sign Favre, get Harvin, exciting. First round bye.. exciting. Stomp the cowgirls... exciting. Being predicted all season as a superbowl team, exciting.
If your telling me that this wasn't hte most exciting season as a fan, then your "disdain" for Favre has taken full control of you. ;)
