After last year, it was " a given" that Favre would play for the Vikings under one condition-------no training camp.

Vikings knew that going into training camp. Fans knew that too.

This fiasco is stricly about if Favre is coming back to the Vikings for the 2010 and has nothing to do about training camp.
that
I dount there is a person in Minnesota ( management, team mates, or fans) that expected Favre at training camp.

Yes, I believe his ankle bothers him, but even if it was fine he would not be at training camp.

Anyone who thinks different--------I'll sell you my Minnesota farm with views of the Rocky mountains.

^^True dat. If his ankle is still sore I bet he comes back in about week 4. I'm almost willing to put the house up that he plays this year.

Favre can still have his moments but overall is far enough past his prime to be considered an average starting QB. (Note that at his age most guys are 5-10 years out of the league so this is a compliment that he is still functional)

It's just bizarre to watch all the fuss like they are getting him in his prime or something. I think a lot of commentators and fans have 30 year old Brett locked into memory and man crushes on the guy and aren't seeing the current situation clearly.

What I can't seem to grasp is why the Vikings aren't doing something about the QB situation in the near future.

Are they confident in the back up qb's they now have?

It appears they put all their eggs in one basket-----Favre's.

That old hen is gonna quit laying eggs very soon.
Then what ?

He had one of the best seasons of his career last year and with a strong supporting cast he is still one of the best QBs in the league.

I dont think anyone can deny that the Vikings with Favre and the Vikings w/o Favre are 2 entirely different teams. The later will be a SB contender while the other will struggle to make the playoffs.

The Vikings aquired Favre for one reason ------win a Superbowl

Other QB's less known than Favre have gotten the Vikings to the Superbowl.

--almost-- winning the NFC and 50 cents will get you coffee at the Bearhead Cafe in Booneville Arkansas, but it won't get the Vikings Superbowl rings.


But maybe they need patience and should give him 5 or 6 more years to accomplish that.
He is the QB of their future.------sarc
