Over his 18-year career, Vikings QB Brett Favre has played on some good teams. In 16 seasons with the Packers, Favre led the franchise to double-digit wins in 9 seasons. Favre and the Packers went to 2 Super Bowls together, winning one. And no starting QB has won more games in the NFL than #4.
But with all of that said, Favre made a notable statement to reporters on Sunday following the Vikings 38-10 win over the St. Louis Rams.
“I think, physically and from a talent level, this is the best team I’ve ever been on,” Favre said.
But Favre didn’t just make that statement with no follow up. He made it clear that although he knows this year’s Vikings team is talented, there’s a lot of work to be done.
“I said this from Day One; it’s all how it shakes out – you’ve got to have a little luck, [the] injury bug is always a factor for everyone,” Favre said. “But to me, how our chemistry continues to come together is the most important thing. And that goes from play-calling to who runs this route better. What run and what play-action comes off of one play to the next. Just kind of getting into the zone, if you will.”
The Vikings won handily on Sunday and Favre finished with a 101.4 passer rating and 1 TD, but the QB was not completely pleased with how the offense performed.
“We won that game today,” Favre said, “but we did not play our best football. Out of the five games that we’ve played so far, that one is just kind of average. But yet we were able to win it.
“I think this team, there’s tremendous potential, but that alone will not win games for you. And I think this team knows that. Once again, our schedule will continue to get tougher. We will face adversity. We faced some today. We faced some last week. We faced probably a little bit more against San Francisco. But how we respond to it…this team has the potential to win every game it plays. But we’re not the only ones in this league who can say that. You can lose on any given Sunday to anyone and as long as we’re aware of that and we’re able to handle adversity, and have some luck along the way, this team can be pretty good.”
