    Viking Fans: Favre, Sage, Tavaris?

    This Favre idea is ridiculous. I'm a Colt fanatic myslef, but I enjoy watching the entire NFL (especially the NFC North).

    If you were calling the shots for the Vikings, who do you give the nod? I know it's tough, but try not to be partial to Sage & the Iowa State ties... That being said, I would still take Sage over Favre and Jackson.

    Favre is a self-admitted gimp right now. Even if he wanted to suit up for the Viqueens, he would have an incredibly hard road ahead of him.

    Let Sage and T-jack battle it out during training camp. If one struggles, give the other guy a chance. If they both struggle or one gets hurt, see if Farve is available as an in-season addition.

    Nothing would please me more than to see Favre in the lovely Purple of the VIKS.

    Anyone who would take sage over Favre has their heads up their lil cyclone *****.

    Favre is still an above average QB who everyone thinks poorly of now because of the way the media has played his story, and people are too mentally lazy to see that he is still good at his old age. This is coming from a Bears fan, no less.

    Favre is head and shoulders better than both of those QBs.

    Nothing could be sweeter than watching Favre wearing purple and winning in Lambeau


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    Oh, silly boy, it might be sweet, but when he throws that heartbhreaking interception in the playoffs that costs you a game, you will quickly forget about the game in Green Bay. I am and always will be a Favre fan, but the moments of heartbreak will outnumber the moments of exhilleration.

    Re: Viking Fans: Favre, Sage, Tavaris?

    Ive got nothing against Farve and think he would be a great addition to an already potent offense, but would feel bad for Sage due to the fact that he was so excited to get to the Vikes and would have to sit on the bench most likely again


    Every time I learn something new, something old gets pushed out of my brain

    Re: Viking Fans: Favre, Sage, Tavaris?

    I love Viking fans saying they wouldn't want Favre. I can garantee he is better than any of those crap QB's they have been putting out there for the last 30 years.

    He would have been perfect for them last season. And I think he would fit in great again this year.

    I can never understand why the Vikings don't try to get a great QB. Every season, they just keep what they have or sign some backup, and then they just hope that it will work. The Chiefs had always done the same thing until this year.

    Really? He was so bad down the stretch that his NY teammates openly turned on him. With the Jets fighting for a playoff spot they went 1-4, his QB rating never broke 65, and he threw 2 TDs and 9 INTs. He's not that good.

    I'm a Vikings fan, and I would hate to have Farve. He is washed up. All they talk about is how many records he's broke, but they don't talk about him being the career interception leader also.

    Also all the drama that goes with him. How many more years can we hear about him retiring only to come back later. I would rather give it to one of the other Quarterbacks that still have some years left on their careers.

    Third - He cannot play in cold weather. I suppose that is because his bones are so brittle.

    Forth - Even if we did somehow win the superbowl with him, we would never hear the end of it from Green Bay fans. I can hear it now: "It took the Packers best player, to get you over the top."
