    Re: Favre: This is the best team I've played on

    The only arguments I can make is that Favre has had some stud receivers in Green Bay. I don't think Favre has a receiver on the Vikings that can do this:

    But I think if you're looking at a complete team, this years Vikings team has all the pieces together.

    Its not the best until they win the superbowl. He can say what he wants, but we will see at the end of the season. They don't win it, they aren't the best he has been on IMO.

    Knowing how Favre thinks he will probably change his mind about this team about 14 times during the year.

    Didn't he say the same thing in "06 or '07 in Green Bay?? I have heard this quote from him before.

    Well, first off... Favre is a major jerk off.

    Second... yeah... I guess this Vikings team is far superior to any Packer team with the likes of Robert Brooks, Antonio Freeman, Andre Rison, Keith Jackson, and Mark Chmura on offense.... and LeRoy Butler, Craig Newsome, Brian Williams, Wayne Simmons, Santana Dotson, Sean Jones, and Reggie White on defense. Not to mention that Favre himself was 10 times better on that team than he is now. That Green Bay team was much better than the current Vikings.

    It's obvious to anyone with a brain that Favre only wanted to get revenge on the Packers by going to the Vikes. He wouldn't even talk to any other teams. And he thought he had his revenge a few weeks ago when his Vikes beat the Pack, but then nearly every single analyst on the planet agreed the morning after that game that Aaron Rodgers was still the better QB between the two right now and that GB made the right decision by moving on without Brett.

    I guess the poor little spoiled brat didn't like hearing that, so now he's shooting off his mouth about how this current Vikes team is the best team he's ever been on. I hope he understands that if he doesn't win the Super Bowl this year, then the season was a failure. He was brought in to win a Super Bowl, not just make the playoffs. They would have made the playoffs with Jackson or Rosenfels at QB.

    I think it's awesome he said this. I think it's definitely debatable, but he's got a great point and may be right.

    I'm just amused this has riled up Packer fan so much. :)

    Debatable after wins against 5 opponents, including the Rams, Browns and Lions? Yeah, o.k. Before we annoint them the best he has played on, let's see how they do against the Ravens, Steelers and Packers in Green Bay.

    Favre just needs to shut his mouth and play football. Used to admire him for doing just that.....not so much any more. But, at least it isn't about sticking it to Ted Thompson.

    You wouldn't happen to be a Packers fan, would you?

    You must live in Wisconsin. I heard lots of media (national & local) discuss the situation regarding Favre & Green Bay. Many of them did say that the Pack made the right decision by moving on & that going with Rogers was the right guy to build a franchise around for the long haul. But, I didn't hear any of them say that they thought Rogers is a better quarterback right now. All one had to do was watch the Monday night game to find a very good arguement that Favre is as good as or still better than Rogers right now.

    Favre was not pressured the entire night. The Vikings sacked Rodgers 8 times and hit him another who knows how many times. Despite this, Rodgers had his team in a position to tie the game if the onside kick is recovered. Put Favre behind that horrid Packer offensive line and I bet he either doesn't finish the game or throws about 5 picks. That game confirmed that Rodgers is a better QB right now....but that Favre is still a decent QB on a very talented team.
