Is your mind blown yet? Neither is anyone else’s. Whatever Brett, just come back…let’s not play the will-they-or-won’t-they game. Rachel Nichols has got to be ecstatic about the opportunity to go stake out Buttfuck Nowhere, Mississippi for another 4 months.
From an actual football standpoint this could be fairly large for the Vikings. They’re widely recognized as being just a competent QB away from Super Bowl contention; but is Favre that guy? Minnesota needs a guy to hand the ball off to Purple Jesus, throw on 3rd down, and occasionally go play action. So it will just depend on what type of Brett Favre the Vikings get. If it’s the one that game-managed the 2007 Packers to within a few plays of the Super Bowl, then Minnesota could be dangerous. But what if it’s this Favre:
If it’s the Favre that, injuries notwithstanding, threw 9 interceptions (to just 2 touchdowns) in the Jets final 5 games last season to single-handedly knock them out of the playoff race, and inspired such confidence in his Thomas Jones and Kerry Rhodes, then Minnesota could actually be worse off.
Expect Peter King to take the Vikings Beat Writer gig for the Minnesota Star-Tribune any day now.
Get back to havin’ fun out there and just bein’ a kid out there, Brett!
