    Iunderstand the hype behind brees but as we see favre is nfc offensive player of the week.I still feel favre has one tangent that makes him a touch better thanbrees and that is his come from behind ability,I know brees does to but not the way favre does.

    to all the knuckle head viking fans who still think we can win with TJ after favre retires, please watch these highlights of a real QB!

    Drew Bress is having one of the best seasons of his career but like so many quarterbacks before him, he will fade away. On the other hand you have a player like Brett Favre who was destined to be a legend.

    Congrats Brett! If anyone ever doubted you and your ability att the age of 40 I think they have all been silenced. You have been the last missing piece that this team needed, and no matter what happens the rest of this season, you will be remembered as the BEST quarterback to ever set foot on a football field. (But we wil gladly take a Superbowl win ;-)

    Hey bass8; also from Wisconsin near Green Bay. DITTO! Always was a Packer fan, but will always follow Brett Favre. He provided many years of enjoyment and is the best ever! Go Brett and Vikings deep into the post season. Maybe, even Super Bowl!!

    If Favre does manage to take the Vikings to a Superbowl victory — if, mind you, I don’t like to look too far ahead, but if that happenes, then Favre truely will elevate himself to the status of one of the greats.

    Brett, you saved the best for last. Too bad Ted Thompson is such a fool. I have been a lifelong Packer fan and am so grateful for what you did for our team. I will always be a Favre fan and I love what you are doing with the Vikings. I was sad to see you go but I know and feel the joy and excitement you are now bringing to Minnesota! Go Brett!!! I hope you win the Superbowl for them.
    Ted Thompson, Mike mccarthy, and mark Murphy…. shame on you all for the way you treated this legend. you are all an embarassment to Green Bay!!!!!

    I cannot begin to say how much I love Brett F. I know he is not perfect and not young but he brings sooo much excitement to this game and with the weapons he has, he is better than ever!! I have followed his every move since about ’94 and have to tell all you people out there that he has had some unbelievably bad luck along the way. Do any of you remember the ’49 ers play-off game before they had replay (or challenge) when the Packers were ahead and recovered a definite fumble but it was called down. And that threw them off and then the unbelievable throw by Steve Y. to T.O. that beat the Packers as time expired. Replay clearly showed it was a fumble recovered by G.B. and they could have just kneeled on it to win the game. They surely would have gone on and probably won the S.B. Then the NFC championship in ’07 (season) when the Packers had the game won a couple of times but a couple of bad breaks (forget the OT) cost them that game. And how about the Eagles game (the 4th and 26).. And how many people give Brett credit for playing on knowing his wife had just been diagnosed with Breast Cancer, then his brother-in-law was killed on Brett’s property, not to even mention the Raider’s game after his beloved father died. And not to mention his getting hooked on pain meds…as well as his alcohol problem. I could go on and on but my big point is this is one great champion but luck has a way of playing a role and my big hope and prayer is that Brett gets some good luck (to go along with this wonderful team and their talent) going forward and into the playoffs. I know they have had some good luck so far (and some bad..the tripping call that cost them the game against Pitts.) but lets just hope they have some real breaks from here on. This team and especially Brett deserve it!! Go Vikes…

    Brett–you are the greatest! I love the way you have matured. Playing smart and within the talents of the team. Every where you go, you make stars of teammates. God will reward you for your humility and giving nature. Maybe he has with a new lease on life–3 more years on the Vikings squad!

    To me, you are what a man should be, tough and resilient on the outside with a tender spot on the inside. (Sounds like a good candy bar!).

    Thank you for not quitting just because people said you should. thank you for not believing the negative hype. I thank Deanna and Devin and Chilly all for saying to you “yes, you can.”

    I saw you at the Lions game and I wished the moment would never end it was just so fun. You already are the greatest football player ever to play the game. It is amazing you still have more to accomplish! Go Vikings! thanks for being brave and loving to entertain us. you are my hero.

    Favre is just along for the ride. Flash in the pan, one hit wonder.Not even in top ten QB’s of all time. Thanks for coming along for 1 season and playing for the best team he has ever been on and taking all the glory. Help us win a superbowl and then go away! Then we won’t have to listen to all the people from Wisconsin kiss your butt. Oh yeah… thanks also for boosting merchandise sales and ratings and maybe single handedly saving football in Minnesota. Just get us a superbowl and a new stadium and then go away.Thanks for nuthin’!!

    I have been a True Viking Fan for over 43 years and seen alot of good & bad
    seasons . 98 season when we went 15-1 and lost to Atlanta I was so
    devastated and many others also . But I look at this year and see a better
    team because the team is working much closer together . Vikings will make
    it to the SB . Go Vikings .

    purple08 I have read ur posts in the past and they have been pretty good but this one is crazy.I for one would love to see favre play another yr here.When he said this is the best team he ever played on he meant it and thats a great compliment.As for him not being in the top 10 of all time u are truly a lunitic.His stats speak for themselves.Tell u what in my next few posts I will ask who feels as u do about favre and I’ll bet it won’t be a close vote.

    I have noticed, younger drivers drive reckless, and tear up the roads in beaters (Packers), and are limited to how far they can go. Once we mature though, we drive for pleasure, cruise in the Cadillac (Vikings) and go anywhere we want.

    Thank You Favre for a awesome season!

    1955,
    I am still bittersweet about Farve. I’ve hated (in sports terms) him for so long, that it’s still hard for me to root for him. I’m still looking for one of those games where “the ol’ gunslinger” will come out. I’m hoping that we won’t see one of those games, but, if we do, please let it be in the regular season. I won’t consider this Brett Farve experiment to be successful, unless we WIN a superbowl.

    08, didn’t sound like sarcasm to me either, all your posts rip into favre, all mine rip into TJ, only difference is my posts a correct. good to hear from u again.

  43. By purple08 on Dec 3, 2009 | Reply

    Well i guess you cannot recognize decent literature when you read it rap! My comments were simply trying to convey my feelings towards Favre. On one hand I have hated Favre for so long and did not want him to join the Vikings for obvious reasons… and on the other hand, he has proven myself and many others wrong with his great play and more importantly his ability to elevate those around him to play better. Throw in the economic factor and all the positive long term effects his coming to Minnesota will have and there you have it. I would prefer to use sarcasm to say ” Boy were we wrong Favre!” as apposed to spewing misguided affection with words like ” I love you soooo much Brett and I always have!” It is enough to make you throw up sometimes. Yes he is doing a good job and is a hall of famer, we get it but, it is getting really old and tired. Rap, actually the big difference between your posts and mine is that you regurgitate the same lame trash talk about T.J. over and over. At least I try to interject some humour and spontaneity from time to time. But hang in there rap, if the Vikes win, then we are all winners

    now what u said 08 is fully understood but not totally agreed on.I also feel t-jack will prove a lot of u wrong when he gets his chance again.as u said favre elevates the play of those around him and t-jack has done well in relief at the end of games and with the team we now have we need a qb that knows the system and recievers well if favre leaves.I think t-jack will learn a lot from favre.

  45. By SJ McKinley on Dec 4, 2009 | Reply

    Sage Rosenfels spends the whole game discussing the plays with Brett. I bet he is learning a ton. It is clear favre respects him because when Sage talks, Favre listens. he talks to TJ, too, but not withe the intensity of pouring over the play images. I bet Sage emerges as one heall of a QB after Favre leaves in a few years!

  46. By purple08 on Dec 4, 2009 | Reply

    Sage is just an a s s kisser is all. How the F#*@ do you know how intense Favre is when he is talking to Sage or T.J.? Rosenfels has been in the league 10 years!!! One h e l l of a QB? Lay off the Meth you crackhead!! It is clear Favre respects him? Shut the F— up!

  47. By vikingsfan1955 on Dec 4, 2009 | Reply

    If u think sage will start over jackson when favre leaves u really have problems.Sage did nothing in houston and when he played in preseason he did nothing.Does that mean he can’t and won’t be a good qb or a good backup when jackson takes over,no I hope he will and I feel just as he will learn fron favre so will jackson.

    TJ throws a touch-down at the end of a blow-out game, big deal, thats like scoring with your sister! watch him, he does not have “IT”!

    I guess sage would be ur choice when favre leaves.We need a qb that knows the system and for now thats jackson.
