Childress Says Favre Has Fractures In Ankle

Posted by Mike Wobschall on October 25, 2010 – 2:13 pm

Vikings Head Coach Brad Childress told reporters on Monday during his weekly day-after-the-game press conference that Brett Favre has 2 fractures in his left ankle – an avulsion fracture and a stress fracture – and that the QB is in a walking boot.

At first blush this is obviously not good news for the Vikings and the offense, but the good news is Favre doesn’t need surgery and Childress wouldn’t rule Favre out for next week’s game at New England. Favre’s status this week was termed “day-to-day” by Childress and the Vikings head coach also said Favre’s current games-played streak does not give him more leeway than is typical.

So all eyes will be on Vikings practice this week as many will try to speculate on Favre’s playing status based on how much he does or doesn’t practice. Asked if Favre would need to practice in order to play, Childress was a little vague in saying “My experience is most players need to practice.”

But being vague at this point is the way to go because a lot will happen between now and next Sunday’s game against the Patriots. Hopefully a lot of healing will happen, too.

    Fire Childress. He can’t see challenges at the time he needs to make them, and his play-calling has all the surprise nature of a clock striking the hour every sixty minutes. How dare he blame last night’s loss on Brett?

    T joke sucks, if favre cant play. I would say give Joe webb the opportunity to get some playing time and the vikings go down the long road of rebuilding this team. First thing needed to be done is get rid of childress

    Don’t get me wrong, Brett Favre has been the ultimate NFL warrior throughout his career, and personally I see many great things still possible in his hall of fame right arm, but the cold hard truth of the matter is, the NFL is based on speed now and Brett you have none. A younger Favre made the miraculous throws almost always after his younger legs could give his receivers time to get open and buy him just enough time for a younger and stronger arm to deliver a bullet. But those days are gone now and I want to thank Brett for 19+ years of extremely entertaining football, and some memories of your pure love for the game. As a DIE HARD Vikings fan however, I think Chilly has to make a very hard, but needed change. T-Jack has earned a shot at leading a high powered attack but should be told from the start that within 3 games if he’s not producing Webb will finish the season and began building him now. It’s hard to watch a legand take a beating every week, and McKinney should lie awake every night haunted by his laziness and lack of any sort of work ethic.

    @Ann

    I hope you are joking. Childress wasn’t exactly standing in the back of the end zone to see that the play should have been challenged. That is the job of those upstairs who have the benefit of replay. Bevell, and not Childress is the offensive coordinator. He calls the plays on offense, and did an outstanding job. Favre is not entirely to blame for this loss. However, he is largely to blame. In six games, his turn overs have resulted in 51 points against us. That equates to 8.5 points per game off of Favre turnovers. Last night his turnovers resulted in 14 points for the Packers. If Tarvaris Jackson had the exact same statistics in last night’s game, I am very confident that you would have unequivocally pointed to Tarvaris as the single source of the Vikings’ loss.

    How dare you not blame last night’s loss on Brett?

    Brad childress need to be sacked first even before next sunday esp for the type of calls he make . whts the point of having in having extremely good and WR and a decent QB who plays for passion . All the negative energy in the team is just due to the coach who is way too pesimistic in his approach

    SACK CHILDRESS

    Good lord, he is not certain for the N.E. game with two fractures in his ankle? Get some cahones Childress and keep him out of this game, end this streak, and give his ego a destructive shot like he deserves.

    I don’t think firing Childress will solve anything at this moment, but it is something that should be addressed at seasons end. As far as Farve goes, love the guy (even when he played for the Packers), but when he went down on the sack that hurt his ankle, that is when he should have been replaced. I don’t much care for T-Jack either, but I think a healthy T-Jack is better than a banged up Farve.

    Brad Childress is calling plays like he wants to lose, completely defensive/vanilla play calling. Two situations come to mind: The Quarless “touchdown” which should have had a challenge flag, and running the clock out at the end of the half. Why in holy cheeseheads name do we give up an opportunity to take a two possession lead before the half???? We have Favre, we have Moss, we have Percy, we have ADP!!! We have all of these weapons and downs to do it and Childress calls it like a pansy. MAN UP CHILDRESS!!!!
    Yes, Favre is playing poorly. He doesn’t have the fire that he used to and seems more like the grumpy old man next door. I don’t blame him considering our team basically forced him back here, I am sure he would have been happier to just stay on his ranch in Mississippi. I would have no problem giving another quarterback and chance, hopefully T-Joke can actually use all of these weapons we have available and maybe Joe Webb has learned enough to be a starter. I am sure Moss is frustrated that he only got to play 3 games with Brett and hopefully he is still on board the Vikings ship. Regardless, a change is necessary because what we got, for some undefined reason, is not working. SKOL

    My opinion if they don’t sit far or let him retire it will be the worst mistake the coach ever makes. Don’t get me wrong farve is amazing he has done it all but everyone can agree that his age is finally catching up with him. He just needs to hang it up and let jackson or webb take over…

    Brian, HOW DARE YOU NOT BLAME CHILDRESS FOR THIS LOSS! Childress even admitted in his press conference that he should have used the last timeout before ending that forst half. He in fact called a running play with a minute on the clock and 2 or 3 timeouts left because he in fact had no intention of trying to score any points. So you can talk about having a person upstairs but Brad still could have challenged that touchdown on the fact that it was questionable in the first place. McCarthy did that right away and the fact that Childress didn’t want to spend a timeout on a challenge but then just throws one away at the end of the fist half is just BAD COACHING! And when you have sports commentators who have been broadcasting almost 30 years and field reporters who get PAID to ask the right questions and Hall of Fame players throwing their arms up as to WHY a coach would throw the towel in and not at least try and score points when you had plenty of time on the clock and timeouts to do that, makes me say Childress lost this game due POOR EFFORT and at least Favre kept swinging in spite opf a few bad decisions! AND WHAT GETS ME IS THAT THERE ARE A FEW VIKINGS FANS THAT CALL FOR BRETT TO SIT WHILE DREW BREES WHO IS TIED WITH BRETT FOR INTERCEPTIONS THIS YEAR THREW FOUR YES 4 INTERCPETIONS EARLIER THAT DAY AND HIS FANS STAND BY HIM!

    Childress has NO RIGHT to blame Favre for last night’s loss! Where was he with the challenge flag after GB’s 1st touchdown?? Why didn’t he run another play before halftime, instead of walking off to the lockerroom with 24 secs left? If Childress wants to blame anyone he should be blaming himself.

    I think that they may need a whole new coaching team. Why didnt someone tell Childress to Challenge a couples of plays that SHOULD have been challenged!! Harvin had a TD that was taken away which it should not have been and yes Favre throwing to his old team mates does not help!!! Favre should have been pulled when he hurt his ankle. But mostly, I think the NFL needs to find new ref’s!!! They are horrible at making calls and should be fined for these horrible calls. You can pretty much say “hey those ref’s are being paid off” and you would almost be correct cause they are always one sided. There shoudl have been quite a few penalities against GB that the ref’s never called which is bullsh*t!!!

    Joe Webb needs to play with TJ, the wildcat and lots of down field to Moss and Harvin mixed in with a steady dose of AP. This will work out all right, Favre did lose that game last night and Chilly didn’t help with poor play calling in the 1st quarter and an obvious challenge missed. Fire Chilly, sit Brett and give TJ and JW a chance to dual showcase!! Oh btw…. our defense lost the game, they couldn’t stop a leaky faucet last night!!

    Brian is the only person I have ever heard on any message board make any sense in my life. People are idiots if they think it was Childress who is at fault for not asking for a review of the Packers TD. They are also idiots if they think he calls the plays. I am so sick of Minnesota sports fans and thier backwoods opions on the Twins and Vikings. Do you morons feel qualified to call out the Vikings coachng staff and players because you drink beer and watch 12 of 16 games a year and you sat on a 9-man roster in High School and remember something a coach taught you about what to do in a press cover 2 defense???? People – Chilly doesnt come to your work at the Valvoline on the corner of Bass Lake Road and tell you, your putting the wrong spark plugs in his Volvo! Have another Grain belt, shut the F up about what you dont know about sports and leave the coaching and playing up to the guys who took the mess Mike Tice left us with and made us a respecatble franchise again….Let me guess – It wasnt Childress and his staff that helped Rick Speilman and co put together last years 12-4 team that was a play from the Super Bowl….The Vikings are 4 plays from being 6-0. 10-6 will win the North, Chicago is a fraud and Green Bay got outplayed, out classed, and had every break go their way and still almost lost. Id rather lose with the Vikings and be where they are then have won with Chicago or Green Bays team and be where they will be. In 6 weeks dont comeback as fans go root for the Packers, you’ll fit in great with their fans that are so claseless they boo their legend. Go Vikes

IT WOULD NOT SURPRISE ME THAT THEY DON’T EVEN PRACTICE A ONE MINUTE DRILL! I HAVE WATCHED FAVRE FOR 20 YEARS AND I HAVE SEEN HIM WORK THS SIDE LINES WITH RECEIVERS, RUN UP AND SPIKE THE BALL AND CONTROL THE CLOCK AND SCORE TOUCHDOWNS, IN FACT THAT IS WHEN FAVRE IS AT HIS BEST! AND FOR CHILDRESS TO SAY “MOSS HAD HIS ONE SHOT” “OR IM AFRAID OF A BLOCKED PUNT” IS JUST TOTAL BS!!!

    I think Chilly should be given a ten year extension !! After watching years of the Brett Favre show, I have come to the conclusion that he looses more games than he wins with his reckess decisions. If he doesn’t throw 3 picks, he would have had a lead and could have run out the clock sitting on a lead.

    TORI, ACTUALLY BRAD DOES CALL THE PLAYS IN A SENSE, HE TELLS BEVEL TO GO FOR IT OR NOT GO FOR IT, HETELLS BEVEL TO RUN THE CLOCK OUT OR RUN A ONE MINUTE OFFENSE AND TRY AND SCORE. BRETT CAN’T CHECK OUT OF THE OVERALL SCHEME HE CAN ONLY CHECK OUT OF A FEW PLAYS HERE AND THERE. CHILDRESS ADMITTED HE CHOSE TO THROW AWAY THE TIMEOUT AND ITS ON CHILDRESS TO THROW CHALLENGE FLAG ON GUT FEELING WHEN IT CAME TO A QUESTIONABLE TOUCHDOWN.

Brett Favre is not the only quarterback who threw SEVERAL interceptions yesterday! I agree, 4 plays from 6-0. It’s anyone’s game! Don’t give up Vikings! (and I agree about the classless fans booing their legend!) Don’t play Brett if he is hurt. T-Jack can do it too! I was upset with the officiating and with Chilly. It is not Brett’s fault. I still think we can win the Superbowl.

    BRIAN DOESN’T KNOW FOOTBALL AS WELL AS HE THINKS. I COACHED FOOTBALL AND BRAD MAKES A LOT OF MISTAKES AND A COACH IS HELD TO A MUCH MUCH HIGHER STANDARD THAN THE PLAYERS ARE. A COACH’S DEMEANOR AND HIS DRIVE RUB OFF ON HIS PLAYERS. AND WHEN YOU SEE A HALL OF FAME RECEIVER LIKE MOSS THROW HIS ARMS UP WONDERING WHY THEY ARE GIVING UP WITH TIME ON THE CLOCK AND TIMEOUTS ON THE CLOCK, WELL THAT JUST IS A BAD EXAMPLE AS A COACH. THAT SENDS THE MESSAGE TO HIS PLAYERS TO PLAY CONSERVATIVE AND HOPE FOR THE BEST. A COACH IS RESPONSIBLE FOR MAKING HIS PLAYERS WANT TO SCORE EVERY SINGLE CHANCE THEY GET, WHEN PLAYERS SEE THAT FIRE IN A COACHES EYES, THEY RESPOND. BUT WHEN A COACH MAKES HIS PLAYERS SECOND GUESS THEMSELVES AND DOESN’T SHOW CONFIDENCE IN THOSE PLAYERS, IT RUBS OFF AND CAUSES THEM TO PLAY WITH LESS ENTHUSIASM. CAN YOU IMAGINE HOW FIRED UP THE PLAYERS WOULD HAVE BEEN IF CHILDRESS TOLD FAVRE, YOU GOT 60 SECONDS AND TIMEOUTS, NOW WORK THE SIDELINES AND MOVE THAT BALL DOWN AND SCORE, IF THEY HAD SCORED RIGHT BEFORE GOING INTO HALFTIME? INSTEAD, CHILDRESS PLAYS IT SAFE AS USUAL AND YOU GOT SPORTS ANNOUNCERS AND FIELDF REPORTERS ASKING CHILDRESS WHY DIDN’T HE KEEP PLAYING? I KNOW WHAT I’M TALKING ABOUT, THIS TEAM IS LOSING BECAUSE CHILDRESS IS NOT FIRING HIS GUYS UP AND BECAUSE CHILDRESS IS PLAYING IT SAFE ALL THE TIME. QUIT BLAMING FAVRE!

    Everyone wanted Brett Favre back– everyone was crying for him to come back-players, fans, the whole state of MN and all the experts on all the sports media from ESPN to Pee Wee journals- If he had not come back, all of you naysayers would be disappointed and with a 0-6 record right now, maybe more billboards would be up asking Brett, begging Brett to come back and play the Pats.A lot of the bloggers on here I do respect, but some of you are blind when you are blaming someone who was leaning to staying retired (yes, that is my take) came back and risked injuries that will nag and ache in his later years is — well, I don’t want to use words unsuitable for children, so I will keep this PG. You wanted him back, he has given all he can– and now, who knows, if he keeps this up, may be with a cane at 42 years of age. Give the guy a break– I want to thank you, Brett Favre for coming back and trying so hard, despite all the incredibly poor mistakes in play calling, to give us a chance at the SB. Is our season over? I am not giving up yet–maybe we will get hot and win out– maybe, miracles do happen. Webb has promise, but seriously, with his limited experience to play against NFL seasoned players– hmm, not sure I see it. TJack, well, if he can get over his happy feet, calm down, and make a quick decision, maybe he can do it, Our offense has scored points the last couple games, and now the defense seems to have disappeared. But most of the trouble comes from poor management of the game and that goes to the coaching staff. Randy Moss showed he has matured greatly since he was last here– and he was in shock at the play calling– arms raised, like what the ?? Again I want my post to stay PG.

    Last night the turning point in the game was the tackle on the ankle. It sped up the clock in Favre’s head the next series and the int resulted. These are throws that Farve has not made throughout his career as some would like to say. The truth is Farve’s int’s typically in the past were down field or throwing a ball in traffic. The fact is he is not the same player since New Orleans. I do believe he wanted to retire and his body language since pre-season has shown frustration versus the typical enthusiasm we have seen for years. I have watched the guy every Sunday for 20 plus years. He is the best player I will ever have the priviledge of watching but it is apparent there are too many things working against him right now. No one during the game sees the line not holiding up or the receivers continuing to not follow through on their routes. I mean serious on how many times have we had to throw the quick hitter on third down because there is not confidence in the line holding up to go down field. If you look at the int’s this year, half are on the receiver and half are on Favre. There is no doubt he is not playing well but tell me what game would we have won with T-Jack. The only game that would be in question is Miami as that was terrible on all fronts offensively. All I can say is we have 10 games left. I believe we lose this week. But if we can win out at home and get two road victories we are in the playoffs. That gives us a three game margin of error. Favre needs to sit this week and possibly next week. We will beat Green Bay at home. The only question mark in my mind is the Giants. Otherwise we can win out after NE. We have a good team. I am not giving up on the team until we are eliminated. Go Vikes! We will be 9-7 have some faith.

LAST YEAR WE HAD A MORE COCSISTANT O-LINE WITH A BETTER BLOCKING RB (TAYLOR) AND BRETT WASN’T HURRIED HALF AS MUCH AS HE IS NOW AND LOOK HOW MUCH BETTER HE PLAYED. YOUR PROTECTION IS A DIRECT FACTOR ON YOUR QUARTERBACKS’ PLAY. ONE SECOND CAN MEAN THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A COMPLETED TOUCHDOWN PASS OR A FUMBLE OR INTERCEPTION. THE BETTER THE O-LINE PLAYS AND THE BETTER THE RB PICKS UP BLITZES THE MORE YOU WILL SEE FAVRE COMPLETING P A S S E S ON A CONSISTANT BASIS!

    I might be the only one to make this point, but first, there is no way Childress has the power to sit Favre…If Brett says hes good to go, then guess what, hes playing. Brett has played through many injuries and a fracture to the ankle, which ESPN deemed similar to a sprain will not keep him out against Tom Brady…If Tavaris starts Sunday, his game plan from Childress will be hand the ball off to AP…well guess what, Favre can do the same exact thing on a bad ankle, so I do not see any reason why Favre would want to sit this one out…yea, his mobility will probably hurt the offense but it’s Brett Favre people…he has defined the odds of injuries and football his whole career…This is a perfect storybook ending…Favre facing suspension, two fractures in his ankle, bad relationship with his head coach, etc. just sets up from a 10 and 0 run where Favre plays out of his mind…god I sure hope so

    Childress should be fired for comments about Favre. A coach should stand behind his players and be the leader, not columnist. If we didn’t have Favre, the Vikings would have been 8-8 last year. We wouldn’t be any better this year without him.

    Zigi should have fired Childress at the end of last year, for none performance of his job. Childress should sit down and talk with Bud Grant and read his playbook. If that doesn’t do the trick then can him to the BILLS. What was Zigi thinking of when he hired the worthless non-emotional Childress as a head coach of the very emotional Vikings. Zigi should sack Childress today before the wildcard gets away from us. Oh, I forgot that is not in Childress’ mind he gave up on any kind of winning season for our team. FIRE THE WORTHLESS CHILDRESS BEFORE HE DOES NAY MORE HARM TO THE TEAM!!!!!!!!!

    Promote Leslie Frazier, fire childress and have a serious pow-wow amongst the players to turn this around. Childress has no business being on this team. And btw minnesota fans, your negativity attracts A@#holes like childress to the state and the energy of “i hope we don’t lose” is what brings minnesota teams down. As a former Minnesotan I can see the state for what it is: mostly crybabies and intelligent yet negative people. IF you want positive outcomes then try doing something positive with YOUR LIVES.

    I am only a woman who loves the Vikings and I really believe we need a new coach. Sure, Brett is 41, but on his best day TJac can’t match him in anyway. We made all the deals and got Favre and then Randy and we have Adrian and the greatest defense . If a coach can’t call for instant replays at the right times, he is no good to anybody. As far as I am concerned, the Vikings won on Sun.pm, and the coach gave it away to the Pack. I would think the owners would be done with Childress.If you can’t win with the best, what the heck are you doing coaching them? When Brett goes away and if Childress is still around we will be seing hi s chosen one, TJ, quarterbacking and he will still be playing just the same as ever, not very well. Maybe we need to draft a hot one.

    The packers disgust me. They went after the ankle because they couldn’t win. Brett was a warrior last night. He fought hard for his team. There were so many mistakes that he didn’t do. If Percy had come down with two feet in, we would have won. If Moss hadn’t pushed off, we might have gotten points. If Loadholt didn’t grab the face mask and get a penalty, we would not have lost yards. I am sick of everyone blaming everything on Brett. There were a lot of interceptions yeaterday but what they do is pick on Brett. He is incredible. I hope he can come back and fight for us.

    I appreciate what Bret has given to the Vikes last year and the effort this year, however, stats don’t lie.

    The Vikings are 2-4 LARGELY because of brett. He has 10 INT’s and 5 fumbles. That is averaging 2.5 turnovers a game!

    I believe we need to give T-Jack a chance. The last shot T-Jack had, he led the Vikes to the playoffs. It would be interesting to see if he can do even better with the stars the Vikings have today!

    The vikes need a QB who doesn’t cough the ball up almost 3 times a game. Fact is, if Favre doesn’t turn the ball over so much, the vikes would easily have only 1 or 2 losses.

    It seems like the vikings have been very successful with

    1) wildcat plays involving Harvin

    2) screens to Peterson (gets him past the D-Line lol)

    Put Joe Webb in and torch the field with creative screens, fakes, runs, hand offs wildcat etc.

    Plus Joe Webb is mobile so he can by enough time to see Moss sitting wide open in the endzone.

    Who doesn’t think that would be fun to watch regardless of whether they win this year?

I am sure there is plenty of blame to go around… but I am sure everyone admits that we win as a team and we lose as a team… go forward? Wow… where do we improve? Let’s start with the O line… AP should have to make a hole for him self, and Brett shouldnt get pounded each time he drops back. D Secondary… still full of holes… five years running. That should have been fixed four years ago. We did have some unfavorable calls out there, but next week they may go our way… no real excuse for the folks upstairs missing the challenge… you’ll notice McCarthy didn’t miss his opportunities. If we get the QB some pass protection, we dont have to worry about 3 INTS in 7 attempts. Favre? Never seen a guy with more heart and leadership when anyone else would have folded up. I don’t care about his streak, I care about the leadership… until the rest of the team believes in one of the other two (Webb would be my choice) as much as they believe in Brett… let the man play. It is about the team having confidence in the QB. Leadership just doesn’t grow on trees… it develops gradually over about 179 games…

We would have won the game if it weren’t for the refs and our coach not challenging the GB td that would have been reversed. Even though Brett threw 3 int. we still would have easily won this game.

    I have to say that it’s EXTREMELY unprofessional for a coach to point the finger at one person for losing a game. No matter who that person is, it doesn’t matter, it’s a team sport. You win as a team, you lose as a team. As a head coach you set the tone for the rest of the team and media. He made just as many mistakes as BF did yesterday, so he should be make sure that he makes himself accountable for those mistakes. The team needs leaders, not complainers, and if the coach can’t handle that responsibility, he needs to step down.

    Chilly is an ass!! That was the worse-coached game yet, Instead of mixing it up a little by blitzing a few times, they just let Rodgers stand back there all night and pick the defense appart, Maybe there is a reason Leslie hasn’t been hired as a head coaach. As a defensive coach, he stinks!! They have the talent but not using it. I also think the Williams wall is made out of cotton. They don’t run stunts, give different looks, or anything. The coaching on both sides of the ball is pathetic. How long is it going to take Ziggy to figure that out??

    Oh, by the way, Chily, The reason Brett had three pics is because he has bone fractures in his foot!!! Blame yourself for the loss, not Brett.

    Wow here we go again. All you stupid vikings fans blaming the coaching staff for the lack of play from both sides of the field. Its not just the coaching staff. It is also the players. Favre has been accounted for almost all of the vikings turn overs so far this year. The only one i can recall that wasn’t his fault was the missed hand off between him and peterson and the one against miami in our end zone. When your qb is turning the ball over like crazy, you are not going to win games. Childress wasn’t right about blaming brett but you have to realize it is the truth. I’m sure all you fans are frustrated with how the vikings have been playing but to simply only blame the coaching staff and not give brett any heat??? The reason why we are 2-4 is because of brett’s poor play at qb. I bet if brett didn’t turn the ball over so many times we would have a better record. At least even at 3-3. It’s just so pathetic how you fans say “oh a coach should never blame the players, its a team sport. You win and lose as a team.” and then you turn right around and blame the coaching staff which is part of the team!

    It was an unfortunate event (not red-flagging the false TD). The coach for the Pack has to get some ups for running the extra-point so quickly. The coaches in the box probably didn’t have time to evaluate the play. Chilly threw Brett under the bus. Whenever bosses are to blame they always point fingers. This is America, it was not my fault. Brett is a true pro, a true rich pro. He does not care if he takes the blame as long as the checks clear.

    The Vikings have potential but they’re using the same game plan as last years team. The haven’t adjusted on defense and offense. On defense they need to apply pressure on the quarterback with Chad Greenway or Ben Leber blitzing as our d line is covered well. Ej Henederson should stay where he’s at in the middle ( very disruptive ). On offense, the o line needs help protecting the Qb, Tahe needs to step up and block or put a blocking tight end. T- Jackson needs to start and Brett Favre needs to sit out and get healthy and return with Sidney Rice. Brad Childress I hope your reading this!!!

    Brad Childress needs to stop criticizing Brett Favre and learn how to throw a challenge flag. That would have changed the outcome of the game and he wouldn’t have needed to throw Brett Favre under the bus after the game. Say what you want about Favre’s interceptions, but he played most of the second half on one foot and still almost managed to win. Only he could do that. The Vikings had opportunities to win down to the last seconds of the game. Brad Childress is terrible coach and showed he has also no class with that press conference last night.

    This thought comes to mind: whether T-Jack would’ve kept the game as close as it was last night or not I don’t know, but what I do know is that he would have had a great shot at running to the endzone on that final play. Brett rarely even runs when he doesn’t have stress fractures, so with them, the scrambling will even be painful to watch. Break the streak. Let’s try something else.

You are our true VIKING WARRIOR!!! We are proud to call you “teammate.” It figures that Ted and Mike had the “ankle-play” in their book. I could never, ever call the Packers my team ever again as long as they are there. I have followed you your entire career–to the (puke) Jets, and now to the awesome Vikings. May your ankle heal quickly, my friend. I hope that you feel like playing. I will back you on any decision. SKOL, BRETT!!! SKOL, VIKINGS!!! Ever forward! A true Viking does’nt dwell on what was, only on what is still out there………

    Don’t get me wrong, I have been a die hard Vikings fan patiently waiting for next season after next season. Either we don’t have the talent one year or the next we don’t have the coaching to match the talent. For those of you who are old enough to remember this whole thing kind of reminds me of the Vikings of 1998. True that it isn’t all Brad Childress fault but as with any organization it starts at the top. As a leader you never forgo your principles for the sake of one individual and I say that as one of Brett Favre’s biggest fans. I think Brett needs to sit a couple of games and give T-Jack his chance. Face it, we can’t do much worse!

    You can’t blame last nights lost on the head coach. I believe you have to blame the quarterback, Brett Favre. As far as childress’ decision to not take a shot down the feild at the end of the first half you have to go back to the Dallas game where they had a silly turnover and gave the team 7 points and remember we had a 3 point lead going into the half. Another thing brad childress has basically built this team. This is his team. Each year we’ve gotten better. Now some other things you have to like are the things he’s doing with percy harvin. thats good coaching.
    Now for the Brett Favre analysis. Everyone says its Brett Favre you can’t bench Brett Favre however if any other quarter back in this league played this bad through the first 5 games of the season would be benched, i don’t think Brett’s reputation should makes things any different he should be benched.
    Lastly i think with the offensive line we have and the talent around t-jack or Joe give the vikings the best chance to win because they are mobile. There are many other valid point i could make but i dont think you’d wanna read them all but let me know what you think.

    It just amazing how a lot of folks on this blog keep giving Brett Farve a excuse for bad QB play and then blame the Coach, Bevelle, and TJ can’t play. Give all of us a break. We are 2-4 and the losses were due to QB. Wake up!!!! You are more concerned about him than the team. Your not Viking Fans, because if you were you would be in total agreement about sitting him down. Your last agruement was he’s needs a go to reciever… Well we got Moss, what’s next until the season is over and your looking stupid knowing we have one of the best teams in the NFL but yet you kept riding on Bret. This is total madness. Move to Old Miss. “He still has a arm, He’s elite” right? What about the Int!’s that cost games?. Your wish, fantasy will never come true. It’s time to move on that includes Ziggy. Childress has only tolerated this circus only because he has no other choice. Brett is a Packer and the history books will reflect that, however a lot of you bash Tarkenton who was drafted by the Vikings. I’m old school time to let TJ play instead of these wishing quick fixes. Ziggy thanks for bringing Moss home. You were sold on the One QB away from SB theme. Brett had/has one of the best supporting cast around him and he can’t get the job done face it!!

    Hi,
    It is plain to see we have a team of tremendous talent !! Men with great hearts that love the game! What we don’t have is a coach worthy of these talents. He is on the sidelines but he may as well be at home with all the support that he doesn’t give. Instead of coaching this team to it’s much deserved victories he seems to be more like a “Captain Bring Me Down,” he may not think they can win, and he can tell them everything they’ve done wrong, but they can and should be winning these football games!! Sorry Vikes ! Get well soon Brett! Great to have you back Randy!!

    Team meeting theme this week is adjustments on the entire team. 1- coach Childress should find a replacement for Chester Taylor as he was the 3rd down blocker or go to guy for Favre, 2- Leslie Frasier should call blitz more as the defensive backs, corner backs, safeties excluding Antoine Winfield can’t stop the pass and the defensive line is banged up from last season as they did all the work last year, 3- special teams can’t tackle and give up a lot of yards excluding Percy Harvin, a all around beast of a player. 4- Favre doesn’t have the protection and Sidney Rice who’s a stud at wide receiver, throw the ball to his area and he’ll catch it like Larry Fitzgerald did with Kurt Warner. Tarvaris Jackson should be used for a wildcat or playaction play to confuse the defense. Adjustments adjustments adjustments!!!

    “we all know Favre has his problems but he gives it his all” – That comment sums up the foolish Favre followers who are blinded by his past achievements. Yes he WAS a great QB. He is not anymore. It is time to retire. Everytime the Vikings lose and Favre is the main reason, Brett worshippers find some other person to blame. They say it was the refs or the coaches fault. Why is it so difficult for you to admit the truth? I don’t give a rats as s that Favre is limping around but still playing. I am not impressed that he can play through injuries and won’t quit, even when he is in pain. It was embarrassing watching him struggle and hobble around like an elderly man surrounded by school children on the playground. I felt sad for him. It may look good for the cameras and might make all the old ladies from Wisconsin’s panties wet, but he is killing this team. It is so pathetic that the coaches could watch him floundering around out there and not put a stop to it. Why does he keep on being forgiven for his blunders? Football is supposed to be a business nowadays. If you are not getting the job done, you will be replaced. Brett Favre is not getting the job done. Neither is coach Childress for that matter. The problem is…everyone shi ts on Chilly but they give the golden boy a free ride. I hope you all realize that Brett will be done after this season if not before. Will all the Vikings fans on here that used to cheer against Favre and the Packers still think he is so wonderful after he leaves us with no championship? I hope not. We should all hate him even more for what he has done to this organization.

    Did anybody get a look at the Giants – Cowboys game going into the half? 30 minutes left, 3 timeouts about 80 yards to the endzone and the Giants led by 1 point. Sounds familiar doesn’t it?

    BUT GUESS WHAT! The Giants didn’t lay down and crawl into the locker room with a small lead! They actually tried to expand the lead a little, even after Eli had already thrown 2 picks. It ended up in a FG and gave the Giants some confidence at the half….just think if we had the genius coaching that tries to score when the offense has a chance! And I never even thought much of the NY head coach, but it’s hard to not think every other HC in the league is a genius after watching Chilly last night.

    Brett makes awesome plays BUT unfortunitely he makes horrible mistakes just as often. I’m hyped that Favre is our QB but he’s making too many mistakes that are largely attributing to our losses. We’ve got T Jackson sitting on the bench while Favre’s throwing 3 interceptions in a game. A lot of QBs may only have that many in half a season. It’s a slap in TJ’s face to think that he couldn’t do any better than that. Give TJ a chance.

    We are done even if we make it to the wildcard we cant beat good teams. Favre gets too pressed tries to make something into nothing in a way its good but on the bad side it will cost us games. We lost last year in the playoffs with favre at hand, not to be negative about favre he is clutch and makes incredible plays but at the same time you cant cost the team games, he needs to throw the ball away or take a sack its way better than a turnover. Favre you are the man but I would rather have a game manager that doesn’t turn the ball over than someone who gets too pressed. Favre will not break out of the habit he is a gun slinger who often times shoots himself in the ass. Loadholt needs to be benched, shank scored a td. I honestly think any decent qb can fire up this offense we have too many weapons. I wanted to see favre and moss get a ring with the vikings but too bad its not going to happen this roster is explosive and talented all star cast.

    Wow! what a line-up of vituperation and anger! Regardless of the outcome, the game I watched showed a team that gave everything they had against a coach (or whoever) that calls one play to the point that even a novice like me knows that AP will be taking it up the middle in 4 out of 5 plays; a coach that has little or no faith in his team (all the field goals on 4th downs) and a coach whose nose is so out of joint about the popularity of the quarterback (FAVRE) that he is tearing apart the winning team we had last year. I cannot believe that the coaching staff couldn’t see Favre limping on and off the field without checking out what was the matter. Is it too hard for Childress to talk to him???
    So with two broken bones in his ankle – we still lost by only 4 whole points – even with all the really bad referee calls against the Vikings and missing the calls against the Packers! The referees sure did have the Packers back. When they couldn’t do the job, the refs did it for them. And we still lost by only 4 points. We have a team that can win – and all the garbage about the mistakes is just so much garbage. Grow up, fans! Support the team – especially since our “head” coach doesn’t want to see FAVRE get any more positive press.
    I have never seen a coach put his own quarterback down like Childress did last night – and I hope the owners were watching his performance. But more it would be nice to see some support from the fans for the guy we begged to come back here. He has fought for the Vikings with all his heart and soul – and now “he’s too old and too hurt” to be effective = so let’s just throw him away. There seem to be as many thankless Viking fans as there are Packer fans.

    I don’t blame Favre for last night’s loss. He and the Vikings players put in great effort and almost pulled it off. They might have won if the Packers “touchdown” was challenged or if they weren’t instructed to let the clock run down at halftime. And then there were the refs… I guess we will never know what might have been.

    Rodgers didn’t look much better than Favre. I started wondering if he was having vision problems. Lol. Not kidding.

    Anyway, the only person I do blame is Childress. Not for the loss, but for the way he handled his frustration after the game. We all saw the interceptions, but the amount of blame placed on Favre seemed inappropriate and unnecessary. A good way to divide players (and fans) at a time when we should be coming together.

    In fairness, I haven’t seen today’s presser. Wishing Favre a speedy recovery and hoping Rice will play sooner than later.

    Football is a team sport. Many things occurred last night during the game that changed the dynamics.
    I question the offensive play calling with having limited creativity especially with Moss and Peterson. Why the heck was Adrian on the sidelines so much with mediocre Gerhart out there. You knew every pass play when Toby came into block. Peterson should be out there virtually every play if not for the sole purpose of a decoy or safety valve. What about a two back set with Toby and Adrian, or Harvin combo? How about some play action? How about going for the first down instead of the touchdown on the last drive? There was still time on the clock after down four. We surely would have had a much easier time getting room underneath than going for the end zone. Chilly is as much to blame for lack of forsight, intuition and not having that Killer Instinct that you see in coaches like Bellicheck (sp?), Shanahan, Cowher, Gruden, Payton, Johnson, Parcells, Yada.
    No matter how much talent is on a team it can only go as far as the coaching staff can take it. Childress is the wrong guy from day one…He is uncreative, bullheaded and inflexable. He lacks the intricate knowledge and savvy of doing the the little things in a game that count big time. I place this loss soley on Childress. The better team is out there just know what to do with it!

In walked the Wyatt Earp of quarterbacks, Jeff George and things turned around. Vikes made the playoffs with a late push only to get enialated by the Giants who went on to win the Super Bowl.

    A strange twist could occur, T-Jack grows a mullett and leads the team to respectability while Favre heals. Favre gets back on a roll. Vikes play Atlanta in the playoffs in Atlanta. Where Favre’s career began, and hopefully not end until Dallas.

    Everybody is looking for one person to blame for last night’s loss, but in reality there are at least 3 separate entities that cost us the game collectively.

    Childress(and his coaching crew) had a big hand in it by 1) Not challenging the TD at the back of the endzone, 2) Not rushing the field goal team onto the field after Shiancoe’s TD before a review could be seen, 3) Giving up at the half when the you are moving the ball with timeouts on the clock 4) Calling deep passing plays intended for 1st downs on 2nd and 3rd down instead of playing for the underneath plays that are being left open to make 4th down manageable in the final minutes of the game.

    The REFS obviously had a large hand in the game as well by 1) Calling multiple plays falsely, including the review on Shiancoe’s TD, 2) Not calling penalties on the Packers, especially REMOVING THE HELMET DURING THE PLAY in the final seconds of the game AND the interference that was not called at the back of the endzone.

    And, let’s not forget that Favre deserves a good chunk of blame as well. I know many of you hate to hear it, and for some reason want to give him every excuse in the world, but good QBs don’t survive on excuses, they survive on finding ways to look good even when things aren’t going their way. Brett USED to be able to do that, but has not been able to this year. His 3 picks on plays that were already busted up cost us a lot. Even if he threw the ball away or took the sack, we’d at least have another shot and/or be able to put the Packers in much worse field position on the punt. He was also looking for the big play too often, though guys like Harvin were open underneath and had the possibility of making a big play after the catch. He rarely goes for the quick-short pass too; opting to sit in the pocket longer than he knows his line can protect him in hopes that a deeper receiver will get open.

    Brett is done, stick a fork in him!

    Too bad the pass to Harvin didn’t count. Too bad Brett threw a pick on the winning drive against the Jets. Too bad Chilly decided to go for it on 4th & 2 in the first quarter against the Dolphins. Yes, the Vikes could be 5-1 or 4-3 or even 3-3.

    But they haven’t been lucky like they were last year, and Favre seems to have lost the magic touch. Chilly should have benched Brett after his second pick and put T-Jack in his stead. At least T-Jack can run as well as pass, with accuracy or velocity no worse than Brett at this point in the season. Brett needs to rest!

    If we don’t win the SB this year this is what will happen…Brad Childress gets fired, Brian Billick takes the helm as head coach, Carson Palmer wants out of the Bengals, Vikings lure him to Minnesota. Vikings draft a franchise QB that will learn under a great QB for a few years. Vikings win a pair of Superbowls before AP retires as one of the greatest RB in NFL history. Hey, it could happen!

    If the Vikes are gonna have a chance for the remainder of the season, Chilly must consider benching Brett until his ankle has healed, even if it takes a month or two.

    But if he can’t stand up to Brett, he should consider one of two urgent options: Brett plays for the first half and then sits the second half. He gets to continue his iron man most consecutive start streak, and T-Jack gets some much needed game time in case Favre folds for the season. Or Favre gets yanked after throwing only one pick in the game. If that doesn’t motivate him to protect the ball, then I don’t know what will. He did a good job of protecting the ball last year, so what the? With Favre gimpy, defenses can smell the blood and will try to take him out.

    Between the terrible start, lack of conditioning, loss of Rice, and the sexting scandal, Favre is toast emotionally speaking right now. Maybe if he paid Sterger off and the NFL wraps up its investigation this week, Favre can recoup. The scandal has been incredibly distracting, and Brett has been distracted all season.

    With that said, Brett needs to be benched until he gets his head on straight and the ankle is reliable again. Moss can make up for T-Jack’s lack of accuracy, while Favre can give him pointers on the sideline. Childress has to make better coaching decisions, especially when it concerns a lack of urgency (letting the clock expire before halftime), and not challenging questionable plays (GB’s non-touchdown).

    If it was for that Clay “Steroid Mess” who thinks he is all it-Farve would still have his ankle. I thought people like Clay Matthews and there steroid use was yesterdays players. If he didn’t have the steroid bulk and his over blown nonsense, maybe they should junk him-Brett Farve his the one that has the talent-even Aaron Rodgers has a long way to go to met up with Farve’s record. By the way Clay Matthews reminds me of He-man-that bulked up steroid figure, remembers those figures.

    i despise the whole “challenge” rule to start with. i remember when men played the game and refs made the calls and that was it. the fact is,because of this stopping, challenging, reviewing, bs, a game that was won several times over by the vikes, was stolen. when the refs arms went up in the air…. touchdown. that’s it. done. like it, great. don’t like it, tough. you can’t take it away. not even biast officials could go “oops, we didn’t mean to give the wrong team a TD.” could take it back. (and really, wasn’t that what the shenko take away was really about.) the game would’ve been won if we were allowed to keep either one of those TD’s. if both of them had stood, favre would be being called a hero, instead of the bashing he’s taken over this.

    Chilly needs to limit Favre reps in the game, while giving him as much practice as possible with his injury taken into account. The Wildcat should be practiced and used in games with T-Jack under center, given his ability to scramble and run.

    Maybe Chilly should have squired Vick when he had a chance, giving the Vikings a reliable backup QB if BF went down for the season. Yet I often wonder what could have been if GB hadn’t given Favre the shaft by trading him to the Jets. If Brett played in Minnie for the ’08 season, the team may have made it to the SB.

    The best strategy is to save Favre for the division games, otherwise start T-Jack.

Remember, the Vikings begged him to come back and play! The man gives everything he has on the field, and he nearly pulled off the win at the end last night. He has absolutely NO PROTECTION from his Swiss cheese offensive line! This Vikings team is not the same team it was last year. Favre is not the freakin’ problem! The list of problems plaguing the Vikings is endless and Favre is not on that list! Give the man some time to throw the ball and we would be 6 and 0!

Think about it, so far we’ve had moon, cunningham, george and now farve! When are we gonna make a decent draft pick on a career qb. Instead of going after these one or two year contracts! Let’s give Joe Webb a chance and make him a career qb.

    Boy, some tough calls. Yes, i think firing Chili and hiring someone with more brains than mouth would be the place to start. Brett should sit if he’s not at least 85%, which means sit next week out and come back in two weeks.

    And no one’s mentioning the DEFENSE, which has been suspect so far. That’s a bigger problem than Favre’s INTs.

    Im a huge packers fan, i was on this website checking on Favres injury and ran across this topic. I dont think favre is the blame in their loss for once this year our defense stepped up and won the game for us, but even Favre not playing for us no more I still have a great dill of respect for him. Childress to me in the press after the game did sound like he through Favre under the bus, I which I think shouldn’t be allowed because if a player thoughs the coach under the bus their going to be suspended. But I do hope the Vikings can bounce back because their the only threat really in the NFC north that can hold up to the Packers, and I wish Favre the best of luck.

However, it is the same Farve who has had an ankle surgery, an elbow injury and now another ankle injury, so yes after 19 1/2 years in the league (not to mean any dis-respect to any of the above mentioned qb’s) but yes I do mean washed up has been. It’s time we had a young qb that we can have for the long haul.

    YES! ONE NEVER WANTS TO WISH AN INJURY ON A VIKINGS PLAYER, BUT OUR SEASON IS NOW SAVED WITH FAVRE OUT!

    T-Jack won’t turn the ball over like Favre (since coming in against the Lions for the injured Ferotte) , T-Jack has the fourth highest QB rating of all QB’s with a minimum of 150 pass attempts. Too bad Jared, Hutch, and Longwell went down and brought Favre back, otherwise we’d be 6-0 or at least 5-1 now. Anyway “it is what it is, and the damage by Favre and the huge hole he’s dug for our team has already been done”, but at least we have a good chance of climbing out of this mess with T-Jack and making the playoffs now.

    Brett, don’t let the door hit you on the way out. :-)

    Paulie – YES, you hit the nail on the head – he took the Vikes to the NFC Championship LAST YEAR. This year he is WASHED UP. I give him props for lasting longer than any other QB in the NFL before becoming washed up, but it has now finally happened.

    And no disrespect to the guy, but Favre didn’t do ALL THE WORK last year. The year before we won the division without Favre, without Harvin and with Rice not yet coming into his own. Favre did his part, but he had A LOT of talent to help out, including new talent that made big differences.

    Now with a very similar level of talent around him as he had last year he is performing considerably worse. This dog refuses to die of natural causes, but it’s clear that he is suffering and that it’s time to take him out of our misery.

    I think Childress has done an excellant job of putting this Viking team together. The problem I see is the pride and glory of Bret Farve. He is a great quaterback but right now he is beat up and only about 80%. You need to be at least 90% to do a good job. Keeping Bret in the game is only hurting the team. Fractures take 3 to 6 weeks to heel. Bench him for now and allow him to heel. Ask him to help with getting the other QBs ready for action.

    anybody that is blaming this abomination of a season on the head coach needs to get real. Im a huge Brett fan, I thank him for last season and even for coming back to give us another chance, but it’s obvious what the problem is. All of our losses have been extremely close games where his untimely turnovers have cost us the game. Our defense does their job, AP is having a monster season, but sadly Brett is the sole reason we’re losing, not chilly running out the clock at half time.

    Tarvaris had a bad preseason, but remember 2008 when he took this team to the playoffs with stellar qb play. even if he doesn’t throw 30 touchdowns or have an mvp-like season, as long as he doesn’t turn it over 2-3 times a game (like someone else) we have a better chance to win. keep feeding AP the ball, let the defense do what they’ve been doing (getting stops), and we win more games. plus the 0 line has been shaky, Tjack has the ability to scramble and get those extra yards when the receivers are covered or someone gives up the early pressure.

    let chilly do his job and give your TEAM a chance. Favre has done all he can do, but its time to call it a career. Sucks it ended this way, but do you people honestly think its a good idea to start a qb with a double fracture in his ankle and tendinitis in his throwing elbow?

Should play more man to man with help from safeties over the top Next week we might win cause Patriots like to pass a lot and to be honest we have a horrible pass defense. Childress should have noticed this but he hasn’t. Our offense of coriander is CRUD he is the worse he suck at the West Coast Offense and should switch once Rice comes back cause we will be unstoppable.

    I’m a die hard packer fan and for many years loved to watch Brett jplay. All you Viking fans are fair weather fans. I say this because for over 16 years we won and lost games by Brett’s arm. There were many come back wins because of him and many losses because of him, but come the next week we were all behind him. You all were behind him last year when you had a winning record and now you want to throw him under the buss because of one bad season. WOW! Your team has 4 losses not only due to Brett but also the fact that your offensive line sucks, the defensive line can’t put pressure on QB and your coach does not know how to manage the game. NFL football is a team game and blame needs to be put on the whole team not an individual person. If you are a true Viking fan you need to stand behind your team even in the losing years. I remember when I was growing up there were many years before Brett came to the Packers that our team only had 2 or 3 wins. But every Sunday I would still be hopefull for a win.

    Bigfan1 why is it fans like you all ways blame things on the refs. There were bad calls made by the refs for the Packers as well. I would like to point out the 4th and 1 call where the refs blew the whistle early and Jon Khun was clearly not down yet and the Packers should have had a first down and who knows the Packers probably get 3 or 7 more points on the board. My point is that in every game teams have opportunities that are missed. If an offfense scores on every possession there is about a 99% chance they win the game. Quit blaming others for the lack of miscues by your team.

    Yes BigFan1 they wont get fined but they should get suspended for a 4 weeks or so. But otherwise I think the calling was good besides the TD in the end zone but thats Childress and his assistances fault for not throwing his red flag.

    Vikings4Life, I see your point as well. I would feel the same if this was happening to the Packers. But maybe the blame should be put on the head office of the Vikings. If you look at the Vikings past this is not the first time the Vikings had a bad coach. Should I say “Mike Tice” Look at how much talent was in Minnesota when he was head coach(Moss, Carter, Cullpepper) and yet look at how many playoof losses it took before he was let go. I see the same thing going on now but with a different head coach. Just my thoughts.

    This isn’t a one man show Childress, if Favre is injured, it is the duty for a head coach to make sure he gets rest since he is injured. This is the same as trying to make a bird with a broken wing fly. That is why we have backup QB’s to take charge and keep moving the team forward. Brett Favre is the bird with a broken wing, he should sit out. Who cares if his 291 consecutive starts streak will get snapped, its about his injuries affecting his performance, which is why he throws interceptions. If Childress doesn’t have the guts to sit out Favre, he should be fired, and replaced by Leslie Frazier for the remainder of the season. If that doesn’t work out, we could hire Tony Dungy or Jon Gruden as our next head coach. “This isn’t about Favre, its about the MInnesota Vikings.” Teamwork wins games, not one man shows!!!

    I’ll still keep blogging on this site, because I based my opinions on facts, specifically Favre’s awful QB rating. There are ONLY TWO teams (Arizona and Carolina) that have starting QB’s with a QB rating lower than Favre, yet we have arguably the most weapons on the offense compared with any other team. This further shows just how badly Favre is playing. We have any other starting QB in the league (other than Arizona or Carolina) or even most backups (including T-Jack) and the Vikes are probably 5-1 or 6-0 now.

    To Dave N, Favre deserves to be in the ring of honor as he was a 3 time mvp and went to the superbowl 2 times and won 1. Let’s face it you watched and cheered for Favre as a Green Bay Packer fan. Yes he’s now gone and didn’t leave like a grown up, but he deserves respect for his time, dedication and heart to win as a Packer. Aaron Rodgers will never win a superbowl as a Packer. He doesn’t have that quick release response and holds the ball too long and gets sacked. Minnesota now has Favre which is great for the veteran leadership and heart, but Childress needs to use a 2 quarterback system now like Philadelphia eagles had at the beginning of the season with Kolb and Vick to save what’s left of this season..

    Any QB in the league that has a offensive line the way there playing would have a bad rating.

Then at the end of the game if harvin got his other foot in vikings win. Favre has played injured so many times and has won games like that. He made the perfect throw once again on a fractured ankle but reciever didnt make the play. His line needs to block point blank!!! Last year his line blocked thats the difference

    @ Seanwr – The line wasn’t any better last year. Our schedule was just much easier and defenses were not trying nearly as hard to get a Favre for the sack until towards the end.

    Now every defense knows the formula to beat Favre, so throw the excuses out the window and put in a younger QB that jump around that formula.

    still behind brett favre. he plays still ’cause of a love of the game, comitment to the team and the fans. a warrior who doesn’t stop ’cause of little things like broken bones. a great QB who deserves his time till the end of the season, no matter what. ithink that in the end, (as he has done so many times before) he’ll have many eating thier words

    @ SEAN, What game were you watching MORON? There was no question the Quarless pass was an incompletion! Put down that molded cheese you’re eating because it’s obviously affecting your brain!

    Yes Favre is a warrior but he’s getting banged up more than last season. Favre should play 1st and 3rd downs only. T-Jackson should play 2nd down with a Wildcat formation to get a chunk of yards so it won’t be 3rd and long for Favre. With T-Jackson, Adrian Peterson, Toby Gerhart or Percy Harvin in a Wildcat formation we could run the ball effectively or suprise, ‘Playaction’ and catch the defense off guard with T-Jackson going deep to Moss, Shancoe or Berrian. T- Jackson can throw the ball effectively enough to make a play..

    To Mary Lincks:
    I absolutely cannot believe what you have posted about Brett!! You seriously hope they do not retire his number? No “RING of HONOR”? (not ‘ring of glory”, by the way–funny how you don’t know that…) For you to say that tells me that you don’t even deserve entrance into Lambeau, not even to clean the toilets, and not even as a fan. People like you are what ‘s giving the Green Bay faithful a black eye. Nobody says you have to love Favre; just show the respect he deserves. Would you boo or disrespect Coach Lombardi? He did not finish his career in Green Bay either. You are the worst kind of fan—grow up.

    Packer Backer your boy Aaron Rodgers will never make it to the Superbowl nor will he ever win a MVP. You ask why? He holds on to the ball too long and gets sacked. He’s been sacked the most for the past 2 seasons. Favre put the fans in stands and went to the Superbowl twice and won 1, 3 time mvp and put the Packers in the limelight. Admit it, you cheered for him when he was a Packer. Don’t lie, if your a true Packer fan you cheered for him when he was there, if not then your a wanna be cheesehead..

    Hey Larry2: I can’t wait until Lord Favre is gone so all of you “temporary Vikings fans” can crawl back into the woodwork where you belong. Even if we lose with T-Jack it will be better than losing with Favre. I won’t have to read how you think Favre is some kind of heroic warrior who slays dragons and has the heart of a lion etc.. etc… etc… He gets paid 10 million dollars to play a game that we would play for the fun of it. He doesn’t give a s hit about you or your kids or honor or any of that BS you pretend to hold so high up on your list of what makes a man great. Stick your hero worship up your as s. Favre is no Viking…he is a Packer. Always has been and always will be. I hope he never plays another game for the Vikings. If the Vikings lose with T-Jack you will all be so predictable. You will come on here and whine (as usual) about how much better Favre is. If by some chance the Vikings win…it will not be because of T-Jack. You will find some other reason for the victory. This is why I feel Jackson is doomed. He will not get any credit and will take all the blame. Up yours Favre lovers. You call yourselves true Vikings fans but you are wrong. You are Favre fans. If Favre went back to Green Bay tomorrow, you can bet your a ss you would all be cheering for the Pack to destroy the Vikes. Bite Me you bunch of hipocrites.

    Ok, let’s get some things straight here vikings fans! We all hated Brett when he played as a cheese head and if you had any loyalty as a viking fan you’d still hate his azz. He’s been been a plague since he brought his green blooded azz into the metrodome and dawned the purple jersey! He’s a fraud and his old washed up has been azz has to go!

    I see a few more true Viking fans realize Favre is the cause of our losses and not the savior of the team.

    How can so many of you be so blind? Brett Favre is single handedly the reason why we are 2-4. You can blame a little on poor blocking up front, but all in all it is Brett Favre. How many turnovers does he need to make before you guys realize this? The guy is averaging close to 3 turnovers a game. THREE. Are you serious? He is going to break a Daunte Culpepper record for turnovers by a quarterback if he keeps it up.

    Also, he pretty much deceived everyone by coming back and saying he feels like he did last year. He obviously wasn’t 100 percent healed, anyone can see the difference between his play last year and this year. Are you going to try and tell me that he just magicly forgot how to play this game after 19 years? His arm is gone… adios, bye.

    What is more frustrating than the idiocic comments about how Brett isn’t at fault, is the fact that I know he isn’t going to be benched based on his performance… since he is Brett Favre and he is being paid close to twenty million dollars this year. Oh, and here’s another thing thats ridiculous… this whole “Oh I’m Favre and I play through the pain and don’t miss a snap”. The guy already can’t move around or throw accurately, why would we want him in there when he is injured? Start building for the future and let Jackson play. It would be nice to see Webb play, but come on.. they aren’t going to put their third string rookie in over jackson.

    I only pray that Favre gets suspended for his incident with the Jet’s employee. The NFL knows this is his last season (no it really is this time, because he can’t play and nobody would sign him), and they are going to want to punish him by NFL standards. Can’t wait for the suspension so we can see this team actually do something. Jackson’s ability to actually run for a first down a few times a game, single handedly gives the team another dimension. Even if Jackson turns the ball over 3 times a game, we would still probably win. I trust him to make plays in the end instead of Brett.

    Brett is garbage, take out the trash Minnesota.
