The only ones who feel bad for Sage Rosenfels are Iowa State fans.
Brett Favre gives them the best chance this year. Assuming his arm doesn't fall off, they probably just about guaranteed them the North. I don't think he's a QB that can still make the Super Bowl because his turnovers are still there and the big plays are less frequent, but the NFC doesn't look too terribly tough this year, either. And it's definitely going to help their already outstanding running game.
With that said, I think he's a narcissistic tool.
Sage is an unknown at this point. He may very well be serviceable, but this isn't the time for experimenting, the Vikings are built to win now.
Favre was MVP caliber two years ago, and was good last year until injuries caught up with him. Assuming he can stay relatively healthy, he is the best choice of the three QBs. And yes, his health is a risk with his age and all, but he doesn't need to be throwing all game, he has AD and Chester Taylor in the backfield.
After three years of putrid offense holding the team back, I'm excited to see what old-man Favre brings to the table.
Brett Favre's legacy only continues to grow. He is the greatest competitor in the NFL right now.
NFL Live on ESPN reported that Tavaris Jackson probably will not be on the roster by opening day as a result of this deal. Jackson is being shopped around the league.
6-10 .... Packers record in first season without Farve.
In other news, Minnesota pharmacys are reporting a surplus of panic attack medicine while there appears to be a severe shortage in Green Bay. :wink:
Brett Favre the Paris Hilton of the NFL
beating the vikings just got easier
Packers record in 2005 with Favre - 4-12
If you're implying that QB play was the problem for Green Bay last year, you clearly have no idea what you're talking about. Also, one would think that as a Viking fan that you know how to spell the mans name.
Ha sorry for being harsh but I don't get the comparison at all
Now Favre to Tom Cruise I would get. People loved him early and towards the middle of his career, but towards the end people lost respect for him!
I don't know. Climate controlled playing field for all home games, speedy field, solid receivers, a running game that must be respected - opening up the passing lanes, strong o-line. This could be very interesting. A sorry QB situation still got this team to the playoffs (with a home game) last season. Imagine what a 50% Farve could do.
bold prediction: IF this team makes the superbowl it will be because of Sage Rosenfels and not Bret Favre.
This is a smart man.
