Favre A Viking
No this is not a dream.
So it is true, Brett Favre a Minnesota Vikings. It is just so weird to say that, but what does this solve for the long-term future at the QB position. This is going to be a one year possibly two(I would not count on that). So if he does to lead the Vikings conquest to the promise land and win the Super Bowl then what. Where does this lead the Vikings?
I think that Favre will make the Vikes a better team. How do I come to this conclusion? The Vikes will not have to rely on the passing game to win games this season. All the Vikes need is a QB that can manage the game and win more than he loses. In this move, all Vikes need to do is to keep the defense honest against the run. In Favre, we are going to trust to do this and not throw away games.
In the passing game, he has a pretty speedy receiving corps to work with. Berrian , Rice and Harvin are deep threats that the defense will have to content with. Can Favre make those long throws week 1 to week 17 and beyond.
At the end of the season, we(Viking fans) will see if this gambling is going to be worth it at the end. Or will it be another lost season for the Vikes?
