    With all due respect, 1hotchev, Tarkenton had THREE Super Bowl chances.

    He thinks we have a "great" offensive line?!?!? LMAO


    Personally, I don't think there is intelligent life on other planets. Why should other planets be any different from this one?

    No kidding lol

    Only one played above average.. And even then Hutch really didn't have his best year.. Arguabley his worst

    Mac.. Made the probowl.. But didn't he give up like 8 sacks? Get benched.. Etc..

    Others.. Well they are all young and it showed

    And he thinks our D-line is great.. Not quite.. Very inconsistant.. And K-will went completely silent the second half of the year

    Meh, everyone is entitled to there opinion. Just because it's different than mine doesn't mean I hate the guy.

    If you hate every idiot that puts his foot in his mouth your not going to like many people on PPO.

    I agree that he has a right to his own opinion ... and I would say that most of us do not "hate" the guy.

    But it is hard to argue against this making him look jealous and pathetic.
    None

    Fran had 3 choices.

    1. Melt into the background, like he had, since leaving the Vikings all those years ago, and keeping his mouth shut.

    2. Being gracious, supportive, and showing class.

    3. Being critical and sounding bitter, jealous, and non supportive.

    Chosing number three is not likely to endear him to many Vikings fans.

    It's not hate.

    It's just sad.

    Who tarnished their legacy this year?

    Favre or Tarkenton?

    jargomcfargo, you make an excellent point. In the world of politics/government there is an unwritten rule that dictates former presidents do NOT criticize sitting presidents. To do so is considered unprofessional and unseemly. This same code of ethics should apply to NFL elite quarterbacks.

    I don't think his hate of Favre has anything to do with bitterness or jealousy. I think he hated Favre because he was a packer. Unlike most of us he's a stubborn old man who will never change his mind.

    6 months ago, and the decade previous, most vikings fans would have said the same things about Favre.

    I really think that a guy who failed 3 times at winning a super bowl has no place to talk about a QB choking. Lest he be reminded that Favre has more rings than he.

    for the nine hundredth time this isn't baseball. You don't go into the hall as a member of a certain team, you go as a player. Favre will go in as a Packer, Jet, Viking and even a falcon,
