    Rodgers or Favre?

    I have both Aaron Rodgers and Brett Favre on my fantasy team. I am down 18 points and my QB is the only on left to play.

    Who do you think will have the better game? Rodgers or Farve? The Vikings fan in me wants to take Farve but I want to win this fantasy week and I just feel the Packers are going to ruin the Vikings perfect record tonight...

    Also, for all you Farve fans. He has a chance to beat every NFL team at least once tonight. Something no other QB has done.

    Re: Rodgers or Favre?

    The Vikings defense has the ability to shut down Ryan Grant and force Rodgers to win with his arm. The Packers IMO can't do the same to AP. However Rodgers has much better weapons in Driver and Jennings

    It's a gamble either way, Rodgers has the potential to have a huge game, but momentum will certainly be on Favre's side.

    Too many weapons on the Vike side of the ball. Adrian Peterson wins this game, not Brett Favre.

    And Rodgers really hasn't done much this year for me...Makes me think he is due.

    Re: Rodgers or Favre?

    My only fear, as a Vikings fan, is that the added adrenaline of the rivalry game puts Favre back into "gunslinger" mode, and he throws a couple of costly picks. So far this season, save for the great gunslinger drive of last game, he has managed the game well and not tried to do too much.

    Re: Rodgers or Favre?

    Favre has been getting pressured a lot this year. I agree, that AP has to win this game and Favre can not go into his "gunslinger" mode.

    It'll be interesting to see how Favre manages himself in this one because it would be very easy to get caught up in it. I'm not sure I could maintain composure against my former team.

    Very much looking forward to this game. The only thing that could make it better would be this one (the first) being in Green Bay. I hope it's a great finish regardless of who wins.

    Re: Rodgers or Favre?

    Play Rodgers. The Packers run D has been exposed already this year and AP will tear 5-8 yd gashes all day. You may get 100-200 yds out of Favre but the Packer pass D is solid and the chances Favre throws picks against Harris and Woodson is high. Inside the Redzone, AP will be the answer, not Favre.

    Rodgers has been very efficient and consistent, throwing no picks yet and Jennings is just starting to get in stride with the offense. More potential for passing td's out of Rodgers. The oline is a major concern though, especially against a stout Vikings dline.

    Re: Rodgers or Favre?

    Farve will blow up tonight with 4 ints....he will try to show the GBP's that he is not washed up and force the ball.

    Re: Rodgers or Favre?

    I am a huge Favre and Vikings fan but it is an easy choice....Rodgers. Better options at WR, and the Vikings will shut down Ryan Grant.

    Favre will only need to throw it 25 times tonight IMO

    Alright Rodgers it is...

    If the Vikings have to throw more than 25 times tonight, the Packers win.

    Re: Rodgers or Favre?

    Good choice on Rogers... they will be playing from behind all day (read passing the ball) and I'll be honest (as a Vikings fan)... Rogers is better than Favre. I think this matchup is set for a big day for Rogers and Peterson and the kickers.

    Time will tell though.

    That happened.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.
