    Please Say It Ain't So! (Favre)

    Did anyone catch ESPN First Take today?

    They are talking about Favre still making a comeback with the Vikings! Man, this sucks. Why do the Vikings not just put an end to it and say they are no longer interested? I think this is nonsense. Imagine Sage and TJ trying to concentrate on their jobs, if there is still a chance that either of them could just be replaced by an old fart who never even went thru training camp.

    On First Take, Skip did not think he would come back, the other two guys thought he would. Sucks for Sage and TJ. I would like to see both of them get a chance and watch them develop, especially Sage. I think this is the best chance and the best team Sage has been on. All this discussion
    came from this article:

    The vibe at Vikings camp: Favre could come back - NFL News - FOX Sports on MSN

    Here is an article in the Minneapolis paper today about it.

    Right, because Brett has so much to do with two unidentified Vikings players telling the press that he's coming back. If anyone needs to do anything, it's Childress needing to tell his team to shut up about it.

    I suppose it's also Favre's fault the 3rd string QB is performing better in practice then either sage or TJ. Maybe if they would step it up, there wouldnt be any more Favre talk.

    Re: Please Say It Ain't So! (Favre)

    It says A LOT to me about the confidence (or lack thereof?) the organization has in their current QB lineup if this is true and the Vikings are still interested in Favre.

    This is the NFL, not JV football. If these QB's can't perform in a way that clearly wins the job than get Favre in camp ASAP so we can start making plans for the Super Bowl.

    No need to bag on Favre for this as he hasn't said anything

    Well for the first 1/2 of the year he did. Than he had the busted up shoulder. He still is EASILY a top 10 QB in the league and a X10 better option than Sage and TJ (especially)

    The dude is FAR from being a top 10 QB in the league. FAR. If you say otherwise you're just reliving his past glory, not his present ability.

    The guy is a diva who spreads cancer in the locker room.

    Do a little research on how well he performed the first half of the year (PRIOR to getting hurt) and then get back to me...
