    Looks like the Packers can look forward to losing to the Vikings twice this year...again.

    Even if it turns out to be a dissappointment this time around, it's gotta be better than a year of TJack.

    The NFL is better when Favre is playing. But then again, this will mark 20 years of him in the league. I can't say I've really known an NFL without Favre in it. ;)

    I cant say that I like Brett Favre, he needs to just stay retired. I'm a big vikings fan and have been my whole life. But if favre keeps playing none of the young quarterbacks will be any good when he breaks his hip. And then we wont have a good team for quite a while.

    I say leave him where he is at and play our bad quarterback for a while.

    Oh and did anyone see the Vikings Rams game? Sage Rosenfels was pretty damn good.

    who cares about Favre? I'm not much of a vikings fan but I would if sage took over.
    and I'm sick of Favres phony retirement routine.

    You mean kind of like what the Packers did with Aaron Rodgers? Yeah, I mean, that proved to be totally the wrong move (yeah, the Pack did get swept by the Vikings last year, but it wasn't because of anything Rodgers did wrong - he totally did his job last year and validated the Packers' decision to hand the reins over to him).

    He could be flying up here to say his goodbyes and retire, right?

    (And then still have time to unretire/re-retire/unretire before the opening game.)

    Vikings will maybe make the playoffs, and if they do, lose in the first round with their current roster.
    Aaron Rodgers has talent. The Vikings don't have another talented QB. Sage nor Tarvaris is a quality QB in the NFL.

    I have a bad feeling that this is going to end badly for the vikings.

    That's the thing - you're viewing this as a Cyclones fan and not a Vikings fan. Sage clearly is better than TJack, but he's still not better than a 40-year old, mostly broke down Brett Favre - at least when Favre isn't making dumb decisions like throwing to players wearing the wrong colored jersey.

    They don't have any long-term answers at QB on the team. Getting more playing time for Sage or TJack isn't exactly investing in the teams future.

    Out of every 5 games, Sage is really good for 1, so-so for 2, below average for one and pretty poor for another.

    Also, it's easy to be great against the Rams.

    Like that's an accomplishment. I'm 100 lbs overweight with a poor throwing arm and even I'd look good against the Rams' secondary. /sarcasm

    Thanks for the vote of confidence :biglaugh:

    I was however, being completely facetious, even if there might be a hint of truth to it.
