    Been a Brett Favre fan since ’92, Packer fan since ’66. Hate to see you in purple Brett, but sincerely, good luck buddy. It will be an interesting year.

    I SAID GOOD BYE TO THE PACKERS WHEN FAVRE WAS “backdoored” BY THEM!!!! WAY TO GO VIKINGS!!! I’ve lived in Wisconsin for 49 years and will, once again, watch football – THE VIKINGS!

    Wow, a lot of mixed feelings brewing inside me right now. If this happened 3+ weeks ago I’d be feeling a lot better. Let’s just hope this gamble pays off.

    Just what you (I would have said “we”, but not anymore) need, one more over-the-hill quarterback that you’re paying too much money for.

    I was hoping this washed up, worn out, has been would just decide to stay out of football. I believe he could be a great QB coach and mentor for TJack and Sage but do not believe he can play a full season at a level anywhere near his “glory days”.

    This is indeed a sad day for Vikings fans.

    Ask the Jets fans how happy they were at the end of last season. Brett only has one thing in mind, and that is Brett.
    Sure he was good a decade ago, now he is yet another over the hill person who proves that they have nothing but the game in their life.
    It is just plain sad….

    Who will make the mistake of hiring this washed up has been next year after returning from yet another disappointing season and meaningless retirement?

    Since he’s back I think the Vikes should split the quarterbacking duties toward the end of the season so Brett can rest up for the play-offs. What do you guys thnk?

    Childress should be gone with Farve, both are washed up. Sorry for Sage he would do a great job, given a chance.

    Favre should be given a chance by a team that he acctually wants to play for instead of being forced to go play for a team he has no interest in (JETS) so lets give him a chance see what he can do.

    it seams like most of the players are excited to have him and what usually happens when people are excited they try harder they work harder and in turn perform better. we don’t know what the season holds but what i do know is nothing short of dying would cause me to not be a viking fan so everyone who is not a fan anymore can i have your season tickets

    If Brett plays like he did for the first 11 games with the Jets, we have a fantastic shot at the Superbowl. If he gets hurt and plays like the last 5 games, we better hand the ball off 80% of the time. Personally I think Brett will have a MVP year and get his 4th MVP because he plays his best when people tell him that he’s going to fail. All I know is I’m excited about this year!

    What I can’t understand is that Ziggy pays 12 mil to a QB that must take the team into the playoffs and must win at least one game in order to justify the transaction. That may not be a easy task. Personally, and fairly I would have taken my chance on what we had knowing the QB got his first experience in playoff games. ATL QB got his too. As a Viking fan, I feel the Coach is sending a bad message throughout the League. We are the Division Champions but you can’t tell with all this disparte behavior “Chilly” You can look in the background on the field that a lot of guys on the team are not extremly excited about Chilly’s moves. They already know what happens if you talk against him in any slight way. Sharper, Marcus Robinson. They already know that he lies instead of being straight forward. Therefore they have lost respect for him without saying a word. I’m speaking on the 22-26 age group that looks up to a coach for honesty & integerity. It’s going to be interesting… Great Coaches don’t play games like that, They say what they mean and mean what the say. Bud Grant, Tuna, Laundry, Knoll, Shula, Gibbs and even Green &Tice. It’s about character. We have a Man scared he might lose his job; when he should be concentrating on building character and trust which will result in winning. . Great Teams want to win for their coach, why? Respect & Character. TJ & Sage got a big wake up call today and so did a lot of other players. Look at Dallas, what have they won lately. Washington put on their A game several years ago for Joe Gibbs. Our Coach loses the first four games last year and pulls TJ like it was his fault. I watched the games. It was mainly due to playcalling and settling for 3 points instead of 7. We had to sit back several years ago, and watch Brad Johnson blow our entire season and then he threw a Rookie QB into the fire. I just hope Favre mentors the back up QB’s during his tenure. That’ll leave a good impression before he retires.

    I can’t believe the Vikings are paying that kind of money to a guy who just can’t play anymore, and what do you all mean he’d be a good mentor to TJack and Sage. How do you guys think they feel right now. Sage did a good job last week against the Colts and now he’ll sit on the sidelines watching a selfish cry baby play for him. I think it’s sad. I’m still a Vikings fan but this is going to be one tough season to watch. Favre stay retired and give football a break.

    Francisco are you dillusional, what do you mean rest Favre so he can play in the playoffs, if he can’t play the entire season then what good is he, and also, what makes you think they’ll get to the playoffs. Ask the Jets what they think. The Vikings have made a huge mistake that they apparently now have to live with, and they signed him for two years. OMG this is going to suck!

    Packer fan since before Vince, became a Favre fan, watched as much as I could in his time at N.Y.. I will now be a vikings fan. Brett is a warrior, it is fitting he should finally be on a team of Vikings. The thing that may hurt his play the most is if he becomes undeceive and falters in following his instinct.

    Respectfully, GEO.

    I can’t wait to watch him play at Lambeau field. It will be a can’t miss occasion. There is no more loyalty to long-time superstars anymore. No matter when he decided to come back the Packers should have accepted him as a starter last year considering the season he was coming off of. It’s their loss.
