Vikings QB Brett Favre said the “newness” factor has worn off from a chemistry and locker room standpoint. But one thing that is still new to Favre is playing a regular season home game in the Metrodome as a member of the Vikings.
After opening the season with 2 straight road games, the Vikings have their home opener this week against the San Francisco 49ers and on Wednesday Favre seemed excited to play in front of the home crowd.
“I think it will be awesome,” Favre said. “I am looking forward to it, especially after playing the first two games on the road. It will be nice to get back home. I am looking forward to it.”
Asked if he has any expectations for the type of reception he’ll receive from fans, Favre said his thoughts have been centered around how tough the Metrodome crowd can be on opposing teams.
“I haven’t thought about that,” Favre said. “The expectations are that we go out and win this game. I know our fans, as we come out, will be the 12th man for us because I know what it is like playing in this place as the enemy. So they will make it as tough on the opposing team as possible, but I haven’t thought about what it will be like individually. “
