    Re: Favre has fractured ankle.

    You really do have so much talent in most of the important positions.

    I hate your team. TJ can definitely win games for you. Stop bitching about TJ vs, Favre and start backing the lad.
    This thing is FAR from over, imo, --- We got lucky, and right now you still look like the better team, as PRESENTLY assembled.

    Don't tell Mars I said that though. :P

    I don't know anyone who has actually watched Vikes games this season and does not think they are SUPER loaded.

    It has been a brutal schedule ... and it has hurt ... but we still have plenty of time to come around.

    Just every week we don't makes you wonder if we actually will.

    Good stuff Midg. Guess what, I'm lining up for next week regardless of who is under center. Call me the biggest of chuckleheads, but I believe it will come around.

    I just can't help but sit here and think this is one of the best teams (on paper) that I've seen in a heck of along time and marvel that hit hasn't.

    I think it's time to let the consecutive start streak end. Surely TJ is better than a broken down old man. Let the guy heal and maybe he can help us later in the season...maybe.

    Throw TJ into Foxborough and see how he does. Really, he can only be a hero in this situation. If he loses, its expected. I think TJ does his best when expectations are low. Not sure how Moss will respond to him though.
    Well I don't think everyone expects him to loose and I remember how Randy and another strong armed QB synched when alot of us thought all was lost when our starter went down in 98.
    I would bet the majority of the football watching world would expect us to lose with TJ starting, with Favre as well for that matter. Just like the majority of the football watching world expected Cleveland to lose to the Saints (survivor died for me on that one). Doesn't mean he will lose, just that there won't be a lot of expectations that we should win. Not trying to steal your optimism away, just pointing out that TJ seems to have an issue with pressure built from expectations and I think that will be somewhat removed from him in this game.

    I don't think this is the same Randy that you remember. This one came to MN for Favre, not for TJ. This one doesn't fly by defenders, mostly just beats them in 1-on-1 battles if the throw allows it.

    Also, does TJ really throw a good long ball?
    As always, some really good discussion points.

    Most thought, if you remember, that we were crazy to bring RC in because he was basically washed up after being out of football and in a counter building trade.

    Like all of us, the experts and arm chair HC's were wrong on that one.

    And I agree, Randy isn't 98 Randy, but he is still pretty damn fast and was behind defenders at least 3 times last night without getting a ball thrown his way.

    Lets hope TJ's cannon can exploit that little bit that is still in the tank.

    Besides, at this point in the season, optimism and hope is all I have left right now. Can't afford to drink any more than I already am. :laugh:
    Far be it from me to take away your optimism, I always have a little hope from week to week as well. Nothing would surprise me this year.

    I know you probably see it as an underhanded complement to TJ, but I actually do think this is a good situation to put him in. Mostly because of all the upside that a win would bring. I think he is a bit fragile mentally, but if he could pull off a big win against New England on a team desperate for a win, it would have to be a big boost for his confidence.

    Then again he could look atrocious and melt into a pile of goo, allowing us to finally close the book on him.

    LOL, a pile of TJ goo. Now your cracking me up.

    I've been on and off when it comes to TJ so much that I am probably with you on your points. Only thing I disagree on is his mental makeup. I don't see him as fragile. Heck, I think his time as a Viking has done nothing, if prove to me, he is very tough in that area.

    And the most important thing about TJ and my expectations......I don't expect him to win. I expect him to come out and play within the scheme and don't do anything to loose the game.

    Like we saw against the Cowgirls. All we need is 118 yards and no INT's and this team will win against most teams.

    I will admit that I am very excited to see him chuck it deep to Moss a few times. All he has to do is get it in the area, far enough, with enough air and Randy will outrun everyone and get it.

    Not to mention a little mobility at the QB position. As we all know, Brett lately has given up running for yards and first downs and has chosen to huck and chuck into coverage instead.

    Re: Favre has fractured ankle.

    Even if Brett sits.. He will come out for a token start then take the rest of the game off

    I don't see him sitting tho.. He's played with broken bones including in the throwing hand

    I know he wants to make this thing work and correct it so he will be out there
