Two More Years From Favre?

Posted by cjsiewert on March 3, 2010 – 4:10 pm

While surfing through my regular sites regarding Vikings news and updates, I came across this interesting report from VikingUpdate’s Tim Yotter.

Viking All-Pro RB Adrian Peterson expressed his hopes to OKBlitz.com for future Hall of Fame QB Brett Favre to play with the team for not only next year, but for the next 2 years.

“I hope he comes back for another year or two, gives us another two years.  I think we could win back-to-back Super Bowls,” Peterson said.  “I’d take one.  But the talent we have on both sides of the football with Favre – just the talent we have on offense, defense, all phases – I feel like we can go as high as we want.”

Peterson also acknowledged that it is uncertain what Favre will ultimately decide regarding his future with the Vikings.  Many Vikings fans will be looking for an answer to this uncertainty this Thursday night when Favre will make and appearance on Jay Leno’s “The Tonight Show,” but there are no signs of Favre mentioning his plans for the future.

    I think that Brett had fun last year and would like to return, but it didn’t look like his family was too happy watching him continue to take hits.

    bret farve -this year was not a team player-this year against new orleans this year -when he wend down with an ankle injury they should have put travares jackson in for a series he could have run for the first down . the vikings could have kicked the field goal and ben in the super bowl . this is supposed to be a team sport. .im so supprized at the vikings threw the years having so much talet on one team but never sacrifice as a team for 1 common goal – win just 1 super bowl.- we will remember all the great plyers through the years but until this team plays everyone and plays like a team the will never win a super bowl – and i am a true vikings fan for 35 years .

    Brett is a legend.He is the best quarterback the NFL has ever seen and that is my personal opinion.I truly believe Brett can play at a high level for several more years.I can only imagine the emotions that he has to deal with.I think once his heart is healed from the crushing loss to the Saints he will come back.His passion for this game is so intense and in his case 40 years old is just a number.He can do things on the football field that no other quaterback can both mentally and physically.He has a right to take his time on his decision.However, I would be shocked if he didn’t return.

    Brett is a true team player.Remember when Adrian got injured Brett ran down the field and helped him off the field.The man is all heart.Ask anyone of his team mates…they will tell you he is a true team player.

    shoulda,coulda but didn’t. We all know what happened. We need to stop thinking about it, we need to move on. We need to focus on getting what we need to get to the place we want – SUPER BOWL!! We need AP to stop fumbling & we need Taylor in the back as well. We need the O-line to step up & not only protect the QB, but to open lanes for our RB. We need the big 4 in the front on defence (get Edwards back!!) & we need lots of pressure, quick tackles & intercepts from the rest of the defence. We also need #4 back!!!! That is what we need now. Lets just learn & improve from last year. It was a great year & if everyone does their jobs next year we will have a SUPER BOWL ring!!!!!

    tony, your an idiot. anyone celebrates more than favre after a touchdown. man this guy is going into his 20th season. now that’s passion, dedication, sacrifice and love for the game and his teammates. bernard fumbled, so did percy, so did all day, you can’t blame him for going to sidney. i beleive it was destiny for the saints to win the super bowl. it wasn’t luck it was being opportunistic. next year not so much. they can get LT, let go of sharper. man i’ll be great with chester taylor but if he believes i’ll be great with brian westbrook. Chester, it’s the money and the 1st string spot or a championship and a ring.

    i have been watching brett since i was a teen he change my live and without him the foot ball season will be over for many years, i know he will play one more year and then retired, but the team need to help him more, peterson have to stop loose to ball and the line has to protect him better. thanks the vikings for the oportunity to play in a team who really appreciated his talent. thanks minnesota from the moment brett joint you team, i became a vickings fan . In my hear i always be a packer fan but now i love vikins so much no only for the colors but the way you love my hero, the player that i admire like my father. SEE YOU IN THE NEXT FRIST HOME GAME IN MINNESOTA TO CHEER FOR 4 EVER BRETT..

    tony, duh. Brett lead the team well up until his last pass. after Brett got the ankle injury Percy Harvin fumbled the ball and the Saints recovered on the 7 yard line…leading to a Saint’s TD. Brett lead the team down the field only to have Bernard Berrien fumble the ball on the 10 yard line…taking away the chance at a TD or a sure fieldgoal. he lead the team down the field again only to have the 12 man in the huddle penalty to back them out of fieldgoal range on a third down. the game was lost in over time and in so many other ways…I can’t think of many Vikings fans that were thrilled at the thought of Tavaris Jackson coming in to play in an NFC championship game. take away either of those fumbles or that penalty…and you wouldn’t be saying any of those things about Brett. Brett played awesome up until that last pass. I’m having a hard time believing a true Vikings fan would say “they need to play everyone and play like a team” –when the whole team PLAYED LIKE A TEAM AND DOMINATED THE SAINTS BUT MANY OF THE PLAYERS CONTRIBUTED TO THE LOSS BY ALL THE MISTAKES THEY MADE!!!

    TEARS AND MORE TEARS OF JOY AND SADNESS BECAUSE THIS YEAR WILL BE THE LAS YEAR I EVER SEEN BRETT PLAY. PLS GIVE THEM MORE TIME HE IS PSYCALLY AND MENTALLY TIRED, NOT FOR PLAYING, FOR THE WAY SOME OF THE PLAYERS RESPOND IN THE LAST LOST GAME. WE NEED TO SUPPORT THEM HARDER AND HELP THE ORGANIZATION.
    I AM A PACKERS FAN BUT NOW THE VIKINGS ARE IN MY HEAR I WILL CONTINUE SUPPORT THEM NOR ONLY FOR BRET BUT FOR THE WAY THE TEAM EMBRACE HIM AND LOVE HIM. THANKS MINNESOTA I LOVE YOU SO MUCH. TEARS AND MORE TEARS…

    tony you really are an idiot he was out there playing because he had heart, im sure the coach asked if he was good too go and he said yes as a fan and as anyone on the vikings would probably agree with the game where it was they wanted the ball in no one elses hands then number 4, he made a bad pass yes but lets not forget just how terrible t jack was i dont even want him touching the ball nevermind in a nfc championship game

    Wow tony are u serious? u must b a farve hater to say that. Seriously, play jackson???? They did play like a team. The reason why they lost was because they couldn’t capitalize on the opportunities and it wasn’t just brett, it was the whole offense that contributed. You go out there and get pummeled and see if you can still throw the ball as well as he did up until that last pass he threw. I don’t know how they weren’t playing as a team. You must have been watching a completely different game. I bet if jackson had played and blew it for us you would have a completely different opinion about farve and how the team played.

    How many of you Favre lovers think Brett will go to otas and training camp to play in 2010? I say if he wants to be on the team he should have to go to all the camps…

    I hope Brett comes back for one or two more years, or more if he wants to. He is playing at his best and is having a great time with a great bunch of guys. I just want them to protect him so that he doesn’t get hurt again. We can’t count on the refs so we need to protect him. If he gets hurt, we will never get to the Super Bowl. And PLEASE, teach our players to hold the ball and also how to intercept the ball. If we do all of that correctly we can’t be beat. With Brett and all of our great guys we can win the Super Bowl. We were robbed last year. I hope we learned a lot from that. We need to be home for the Championship game. Brett is the best team player. You never saw him put anyone down when they kept fumbling the ball. He was a warrior and just kept playing,even though he was getting beat up. If our team hadn’t fumbled so much, we would of won. He is awesome! The best football player ever. I am so glad that I have had the pleasure of watching Brett for all of these years. It will be so boring when he does retire. I have never seen anyone play with such love of the game as Brett. Thanks for another wonderful, exciting year Brett! Enjoy your wonderful family and then get back to your team! We love you!

    fmfan…if you’re smart you won’t want him to show up at OTA’s or trainng camp. look how AWESOME he played this past year coming to a new team with no training camp. He’s 40 freaking years old, and will turn 41 in October. it’s a unique situation so the less wear and tear his body takes, the better. I think it would be a mistake for him to be forced to go to training camp…several players said they don’t care if he misses training camp, as long as he comes back. the Vikings were smart to rest him at the end of several games this past season.

    Farve’s under contract this year, he should report to the OTA’s and training camp.

    If he had a training camp last year, he might of had a better year and a Super Bowl appearance.

    for all yall that think Brett should go to ota’s and TC, like Chilly has said hes earned that kinda latitude, the man put his body on the line this season and he had statistically speaking the best BEST season in his 19 year career, and if you follow anything Vikings, they’ve improved each year under Chilly thus far, SO lets say the trend continues…… whats next for the Vikes you may ask… the SUPERBOWL

    Paul—-what the Freak are you talking about….have a BETTER SEASON???????????????????????? 33 TDs, 7 INTs, 107 QB rating, over 4000 yards passing—-1rst in the league in least INTs, 2nd in TDs, 2nd in passer rating, 12 wins, lost in OVERTIME in the NFC CHAMPIONSHIP GAME….take away one of those fumbles in the redzone (there were 3) and they win. if Brett got better protection–they win. if they don’t have 12 men in the huddle penalty—they win, if Chad Greenway (or one of the linebackers, I forget which) catches that gift of an interception in overtime–they at least have a chance to win. you have IMPOSSIBLE expectations and you have NO idea what it’s like to play every game for 18 years and to take the beating Brett’s taken…and to think that MORE PRACTICE AND REPS would be good for a 41 year old who has played as long as Brett has played is just ridiculous….last I checked Peyton Manning threw an INT with a couple minutes left in the superbowl which was way more costly than Brett’s. The Colts needed a TD to tie and the INT was run in for a TD. In the Vikings game the game was already tied and it was third down. an incomplete pass would have been just as bad as the INT b/c they still would have been out of field goal range on 4th and 15. you have shown me that what you’re really trying to say is that you hate Brett Favre. just admit it please instead of making stuff up.
