    Favre-Vikings better than Favre-Packers

    Are the 2009 Vikings with Brett Favre under center be better than the Packers with Favre under center in 1996?
    Considering that Favre was physically in his prime at the time, not to mention the fact that they won a Super Bowl that year. Makes it hard to say that the 2009 Vikings are a better team. Especially this yearly in the season... right?

    Many people would say that claiming something like this is very bold.

    Unless, of course, the source is an inside person... a man who knows both of the organizations very well... a man who has been around for a long time... perhaps a person by the name of Brett Favre?

    This is what Chip Scoggins wrote in a Vikings vs. Rams post-game chat:
    Favre said after the game that this might be the best team he's ever played on.

    PS: Favre is 5-0 for the first time in his career.

    Funny that he accomplished this in his first season with the Vikings at the age of 40, but couldn't do it in his 16 seasons with the Packers.

    At this point I say no. Their defense was every bit as good as ours is and maybe better. Their offense was more explosive and their special teams were outstanding.

    As the season goes by we may get to that point but right now there is a ways to go.

    Our offense is more explosive than most people think. After 5 games. we are leading the league in total points and number of touchdowns. Adrian Peterson is leading the league with 7 touchdowns, that's 3 more than the second place.

    Re: Favre-Vikings better than Favre-Packers

    How can we even consider this now?

    1996 = Favre Super Bowl

    2009 = Incomplete

    I know.

    I am saying we cannot say we are better than the 1996 Packers.
    If we win the Super Bowl, there is a good argument.

    [size=12pt]WE[/size] are not saying that. Brett Favre is. And I think his opinion weights a little more than yours, or any other member on this site (no offence)
