As a lifelong Packer fan, I am now relieved,overjoyed,and and at a state of peaceful tranquility now that Brett has returned to the Vikes.

We had to endure this yearly ritual of will the Brett Play for many years in Wisconsin, and we are glad the fans in Minnesota can now share in the ecstasy and rapture that Brett gave us in his yearly soap operas.

I want to make one thing clear-----Packer fans, myself included, will alway love Brett and are gratefrul for his many great years in GB----he did return the Pack to contention status every year.

That being said, we are now also pleased that Brett has brought Maalox moments to another football nation.

Thanks for the great memories Brett----you are a warrior, but you are also a great and renowned actor and thespian.

I suspect that although you announced today this positively will be your final season, that we will be going through the same drama and nonsense next year at this time------stay tuned folks.

Excellent summation. It's obvious that Brett just loves playing football. He knows the risks that he faces as his body grows older. But his mind is still young.

Sure he has been wishy-washey and that has been frustrating. But the media has really blown this out of proportion, especially ESPN.

Brett is not coming back for the love of money, but for the love of the game. For that I respect him and will enjoy watching the Vikes play, even though I am not a fan of that team.

Brett Farve is a spoiled jerk. A very talented spoiled jerk, but still is one.

I'm a Vikings fan who'll root for them whomever is behind center. I'll concede, as anyone with a tiny bit of football knowledge has to, that he is by far the best quarterback in camp.

This team is at it's peak in skill, experience, and athleticism. Trying to groom a young inexperienced quarterback right now would be counterproductive to the rest of the team. I'm glad they got him back for this one more year. If the Vikes don't make the Superbowl, let him go back to Mississippi permanently with a gold watch and make a serious effort to draft or trade for someone else. This could mean a year or two of TJ or Sage. So be it. At least the organization can get it's pride back by not having to kiss the BF prima donna's ass anymore.

I never really liked how this clown carried himself even with the Packers. Ego out of control.

I agree with everything you said.......except........I think the Vikings should not have put their 2010 season on the shoulders of a QB that old.

The Favre saga will continue year after year til Favre's performance is embarassing. At that point the Vikings will be no better prepared to replace him as they are now.

The Vikings were desperate to have Favre return.

Does any sane person think that a year older and with more injuries Favre can match last years stats?

I don't.

( and as great as his stats were the Vikings only made it to the NFC Championship)

This is a franchise who actually made it to many Super Bowls.

Well I agree, I don't think he will have stats like last year, maybe just average...but I still like seeing him play and I WILL watch every game the 40 year old can start that my local station will allow. Superbowl...man I hope so, but I don't have as many expectaions. Im 42, hurt ankle like I mentioned, and I can even RUN to the mail box and back right now. Remeber, He cant take Vicodin anymore, as he was addicted to pain pills in the past, so he just has to endure it. I think this is admirable.

Good question. I hear the like the new kid as a development project. I still dont know how Tjak beats Sage for second string. Unless its because he is another Childress pet project. He may have the physicals, but above the neck its Sage...and thats what the Vikes need if not Farve, a decent game manager. Rumor is they are trying to trade Sage though.

I would plan on both Sage and Tarvaris starting out as 2nd/3rd (3rd/2nd) string QBs.

Vikings are setting themselves up for a go for broke mentality given the upcoming CBA cluster, their commitment to Favre, several other vetarans long in the tooth and the stadium situation. I can't see Chilly relying on just one unproven stop-gap (Tarvaris or Sage) in case Favre goes down at some point.

I believe that the value for Sage would be no more than a 6th or 7th rounder and Chilly and the Vikings will feel the upside of having a "decent" 3rd string QB will outweigh the limited return they get for him (or Tarvaris) in a trade.

They will not likely keep 4 QBs on the 53 man roster because they are also apparently planning on keeping Rhys Lloyd to handle the kickoffs. Look for the Vikings to try and stash Joe Webb on the practice squad.

Everything will get blowed up after this year anyways.
