    Really? Crowning the Vikings Already? Here We Go Again...

    So here I find myself again (albeit much earlier in the season than last year) in disbelief over the instant crowning of the Minnesota Vikings as not only NFC North champs, but tops of the entire conference.
    It's a forgone conclusion, right? ....

    The Jets forced the most fumbles last year in the league with 29 (Vikes had 22).
    They tied for ninth in the league in interceptions with 14 (Minnesota had 12).
    And their points per game (PPG) allowed was only 1.5 higher than the Vikings.

    OUCH.



    Based on Favre's past performance, he will make risky throws no matter what or he just wouldn't play the game anymore!
    Do you think he wants to come back to play a game management role in a run-dominated offense?
    What part of his career was that ever his role?
    What visions are conjured up in your mind when thinking about Brett Favre?
    Is it calmly handing the ball off and making short dump-off passes?
    Double OUCH.
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg

    It is when I think of 2006...

    Now conjuring up images of TJ leading this team to victory are damn near impossible.

    I hope Bevell, and Childress can keep BF under control. To achieve the goals this team has set, Farve needs a TD/INT ratio of 3/1. We will not overcome another 22 interception season. If Brett settle's down and plays to this teams strenghts, we could be very good, to coin a phrase.

    But if BF starts that yardball crap, he better get yanked, and pronto.

    18-0 Vikings vs 18-0 Patriots in the Super Bowl...why even play out the regular season? Brett Favre and Tom Brady have never lost a game in their career! Haven't you guys watched ESPN?
    Skol Vikings! Go Cubs!

    And that is key. The great part is the Vikings can yank him. The jets couldn't bench him and ruin his streak, helping him retain his awe aspiring stats. We Viking fans don't like to acknowledge Favres legacy, most of it was with our rivals. The Vikings coaching staff will be under so much scrutiny with Favre under center that if he decides to break down halfway through the year, or go all brokeback cowboy on us, in comes Rosencopter. With minimal backlash from the fan base.

    At this point Favre is just a very good band-aid for a position our front office has turned into a major boo-boo.
