    Sit Favre and play Tarvaris Jackson, Farve needs it and let Tarvaris show what he can do.

    I can imagine Favre playing the whole game. The only way he gets benched is if his ankle snaps in two, which god forbid better not happen.

    at some point, the vikes should fire chilly and give the job to leslie frazier. he’s been a candidate for several jobs and both offensive and defensive players love him. don’t let him get away while we’ve got him.

    another nugget i’d like to put out that’s bothering me. you can’t run stretch left for every single running play; chilly called it probably for 97% of the rushing plays sunday night. run some tosses and let AP turn the corner, that’s when he’s arguably at his best.

    I have seen Favre play with injuries and for some reason he always seems to play better. I think the pain brings some kind of mental awareness to the game or maybe it’s adrenaline. I wouldn’t worry too much about Favre, he will turn this season around and when Rice is back LOOK OUT!

    Farve will start then get hurt because Big Mac and The Load can’t block. Then the scared bunny I mean TCr@p will also be hurt because of the same problem. Depressing that with the talent the VIKES have the lack of a competent HC will destroy are chances to win.

    They should sit Brett Farve and start Joe Webb.

    I think Favre sitting out would be nice. Play the first half and if we’re winning and he’s not getting hit he should stay out. We need him and shouldn’t lose him now. Joe Webb is the future. Tavaris is trash. Anyways, How is Rice doing? Percy Harvin, Bernard Berrian, Sydney Rice, Greg Lewis, Greg Camerillo, and Randy Moss… Sounds like the best Recievers in the NFL. 3 Are Pro Bowlers. Adrian Peterson needs to do a good job running this week. He is very important to have right now.

    Leslie Frazier needs to be coach. Get rid of Childress(A mistake to begin with) get rid of Favre and start Jackson. He can’t be any worse and at least he would get the experience. How many games does Favre have to lose before he guts pulled and cut?

    Five home games left. Five road games. 5-5 + 2-4 = 7-9

    So the Vikings will need to win games on the road.

    We do get to play Arizona and Buffalo, but who knows how those teams will be playing when we play them.

    Anything is possible!

    LOL @ Paul.

    Even IF Favre gets suspended, he can drag it out for the rest of the season with appeals. It’s been over 2 years now since the Williams suspension was issued, and we’re still awaiting a “Final” ruling on it. From the latest news I could find on the subject, “the state Courts of Appeals will hear from both sides on Nov. 17.” In other words, that’s the trial date that is going to held before the next series of appeals is filed.

    I know that Brett Favre has started four million straight games. We only hear about it going in and out of every commercial break. I couldn’t start that many games in a row (or even one) and remain intact, and I’m well aware of that fact. BUT HOLY F UCKING S HIT DOES GIMPY MCDEERSTAND MILK EVERY GODD AMN DRIP OUT OF THAT F UCKING RECORD.
    No one has ever gotten more mileage out of his nagging injuries than this a sshole. It all started last night when Favre got dragged down on a play and ran over to the sidelines hobbling on “the ankle.” Al Michaels spoke repeatedly of “the ankle,” because you, the viewer, should be on a first-name basis with all of the Land Baron’s injuries by now.
    Then they cut to Favre on the sidelines staring at game stills and waving off the trainer, and then Al threw it down to Andrea Fakelashes and she was like, “Brett wouldn’t talk to the trainers! HE’S SUCH A F UCKING TURBOSTUD” Then Favre went right back out onto the field and threw a godd amn pick, one of three last night, with surely more to come on his Charity Pick Six Farewell Tour.
    And what does Favre do after that pick? He hobbles off the field, of course. He hobbles openly, so that it can be noted by Al and Cris so that you, the viewer at home, understand that it was totally the ankle’s fault. Or Randy Moss’s or Percy Harvin’s. Cris Collinsworth bent over backward and kissed his own as shole last night to tell you that Moss and Harvin were out of position on two of those picks that were clearly bad decisions by Favre. Meanwhile, Collinsworth is CRUSHING Aaron Rodgers for missing out routes on the other side of the ball. Favre is like announcer kryptonite. He’ll reduce even the best analyst to a slobbering idiot. Favre has been pulling this s hit for two decades now. He makes a s hithead play, then grabs an assorted body part to let you know that yes, he threw that pick. BUT YOU’RE LUCKY HE’S EVEN OUT THERE, GUTTING ONE OUT FOR YOU.
    And the announcers fall for this s hit EVERY time. Every time. It’s ridiculous. Especially when he looks fine five minutes later. Last night, I heard Al Michaels comment at least two times that “the elbow” looked great (again, first-name basis). They loooove telling you that Favre looks great throwing the ball despite an injury. NOTHING WRONG WITH THE ELBOW ON THAT PLAY! Favre wants to use the injury as an excuse when he f ucks up, and then he wants the injury played up as icing to whatever futile catch-up TD he throws five minutes later. LOOK EVERYONE! IT’S A MIRACLE! HE’S STILL GOT SOME BULLETS LEFT IN THE GUN! HE’S BRAVER THAN ANNE FRANK! Look at the gumption he displayed hobbling out of his own press conference after his coach nailed him to the wall!

    Remember: Favre is the guy who passed along photos of his bruised ankle (from the NFC title game) to the SNF crew before the season opener against New Orleans. He clearly wanted those photos shown on national TV just so you knew how courageous he had been for standing in harm’s way. And so that, when he comes up gimpy after a fumble, you know precisely where to the lay the blame.

    I’m sick of him trying to have it both ways. Are you hurt, you f uck? Then come out of the godd amn game and let Tarvaris Jackson make a few surprising plays before inevitably reverting back to being Tarvaris Jackson. If you wanna stay in, quit relaying excuses to the suckers in the booth. Clearly, you’re using the size of your cortisone shots to compensate for other things. I kept expecting Favre to grab his d ick after a pick last night so Al could say, “Oop! Look at that! The Sterger controversy is clearly getting to him, Cris.”

    Any coach with half a nutsack would have benched that f ucker in the first half against the Jets. It’s now at the point where I really hope Goodell suspends Favre, just so I don’t have to watch him “gut out” another pick-laden choke job. Because I’m sick of seeing my team led by the toughest p ussy around.

    Does anybody know when Sidney Rice is coming back. I do think the VIKINGS can beat the Patriots. They have problems with there secondary. They need to pressure Tom Brady Jared Allan needs to get to Brady and they need to take him out of the game. We can do it. GOOOOOOOOOOOOOO VIKINGS.

    By the looks of it, Rice is not expected back until game 9 at the earliest.

    So many opinions on Favre’s future games. The guy knows his body best and HE will make the decision about Sunday’s game. Yes he will start, finish prob. not, but who knows. He is a machine and given the protection he should be ok. Jackson could do a good job given the chance or Webb. The Vikes have the receivers and the running game, so! Trash talking about any team memeber acknowleges the fact you are not a true fan and would be better fit to live in Green Bay where it is the norm. We don’t own these players. Just have faith every week, it is what it is!

    34 points are you kidding? That is 2 games of offense for this team. There is no way we hold the Pats to 10 points. Who ever the QB is they are going to have to play ball control. Grind it out with AP and throw some screens. If TJ is in , let him use his legs to get 1st downs. If Favre plays, run some wild-cat with TJ or Webb.

    Purple08 has it right….if not a bit over the top…..but now viking fans are getting a taste of what packer fans put up with for years…..Favre is a self-centered prima donna! IT IS ALL ABOUT HIM…..he’s one big drama queen.

    Get real tom. Packer fans experienced one losing season with Favre at the helm. You know what you get with Brett, he’s gon win you games and he’s gon lose you games. But his track record is proven to win you more than lose you. Nobody was complaining last year when he was slinging the rock all over the field. He will get the job done, you just have to bear with him. This team is way too good for what their record says. Things will take care of themselves and the Vikes will be just fine, just wait and see. SKOL!

    Thanks! That was right on and extremely funny!

    Unfortunately Goodell won’t be able to suspend “the man with an ego the size Lambeau”, because the woman will have been paid off. As a result, we can kiss this season away. Look on the bright side, once we are mathematically eliminated from the playoffs, T-Jack will start and win games because:
    (1) Can’t play any worse than what Favre’s been playing.
    (2) If you and I are upset with a lost Superbowl season, can you imagine how upset the rest of the team will be (with the exception of the three “unwise” men)? They will all play their best to prove that “the ego the size of Lambeau” should have benched a couple of games into this season.

    Obviously we are still hoping that Favre will play somewhere close to last year, but since he’s not getting any younger, we’re guaranteed to lose . As a result, might as well enjoy the fact he’s going to throw a few picks, get sacked, and fumble another game away. The worse he looks, the better T-Jack will look later this season and FOR MANY YEARS TO COME!

    Go T-Jack! Go Vikes!

    What has happened to our defense?? Jared is not the guy we got last year… The offense is aging and not holding and protecting… Like it or not Farve is our best hope.. all the rest need to be playing at the highest level.. thats what they’re paid for..maybe nobody really cares because of the union situation pending next year. Peterson, Harvin continue to be the best.. Can’t Moss jump?? We still need Rice!!!

    Sorry folks TJack is not the answer.. we needed someone from the draft a higher pic.. Joe Webb might develop..If TJack was any good don’t you think Frazier, Bevell and the others (NOT CHILDRESS) would know it he wasn’t that impressive in pre-season Webb was a break out.. I think Childress is a problem and all the people (season ticket holders)have said that for years. Farve got him the extention!!He would have been out sooner.

    I can’t believe these TRAITOR PACKER FANS like Tom & others. The Packers weren’t even discussed as a viable team until Favre put them on the map! That 330 MILLION DOLLAR STADIUM THOSE FANS GET TO SIT IN EVERY WEEKEND WOULD NOT EVEN BE THERE IF NOT FOR FAVRE! That Brown County vote barely passed and it was Favre that put them over the top! And then Favre is bribed to retire and stop playing the game he loves to play. Then these JACKA SS PACKER FANS Boo him like children after he gave them 15 winning seasons, close to a 100 winning games, 2 NFC Championships a Superbowl and made the Packers a household word. What a bunch of JACKA SSES!

    put jackson in and let him scramble and get time in the pocket to get the ball down the field to the great receivers minnesota has. favre is old and has absolutely NO mobility thats why he cant get the ball down the field to moss or anybody else. besides what was the point of bringing moss in if favre’s elbow is always hurting and cant even throw the deep ball. play T-jack

  46. By Rick James on Oct 28, 2010 | Reply

    Cory,I think you are mistaken. Favre can assuredly still throw the deep ball, elbow problem or not. I have no idea why they only took one deep shot on sunday night, must have been the fear of the passrush. Best believe they will take a few shots this weekend. Purpleforever definately has some great points from what I could make out, even if it was the worlds longest run on sentance haha. SKOL!

    @PURPLEFOREVER – Favre is injured AND not performing you DIPSHÍT. All the other guys you listed are healthy but underperforming. They are not making the incredible plays, but they are still not making numerous mistakes per game that end up benefitting the other team! Not to mention, they are without question the best options that we have at their positions.

    FAVRE on the other hand has a backup QB who has been respectably successful in his first 3 years as a starter, AND who is being argued by countless people as the CLEAR BETTER OPTION at QB. Now if we had guys like Vanden-Bosh or Umenyiora backing up the D-Line then you’d have a case! But as things are, the biggest need is a change at QB, and we have an option there that is very likely to create an improvement over the crippled senior citezen that refuses to just learn how to play golf!

    Favre has no mobility huh. None. He does’nt slip and fall and come back up to attempt a pass? He doesn’t take a bad snap and pick the ball up and hit Jimmy for 10? Oh, ok. I guess you do know everything. Even with a broken foot he has more mobility that most.

    @Rich James – Yes, there ARE times that people’s opinion CLEARLY justify that they be put into a different standard. If somebody tells you that they think that all Americans ought to die, and that 9/11/2001 was one of the best dates in history, you’d hold this person to a very different standard, wouldn’t you? If someone walks up to you and points at the Metrodome and told you it looked like a fork, you’d be thinking there was something wrong with this person too. Furthermore, if someone approached you and told you that Dan Marino can still play good enough to start in some NFL teams, you would KNOW that they are off their rocker. Brett may not be at Dan Marino’s level yet, but he certainly is getting close. HISTORICALLY Brett has been a good QB, but AGE and INJURIES change how closely the present and future will resemble history. Both categories are constantly getting worse for Brett, and anyone who can’t see that and doesn’t realize what this means to his performance, (especially after seeing 6-games of proof) is justifiably incompentant in my book.

    If you want me to show you class(as you define it), you are going to have to show me some intelligence first. Intelligence doesn’t come from endlessly ranting off on how what has happened in Brett’s past is clear proof for what will happen in his future. It comes from looking at all the variables logically and determining how likely each outcome truly is.

  57. By WTF on Oct 28, 2010 | Reply

    @hey cory – You obviously don’t understand what mobility means in this context. In part, mobility is being able to avoid the sack AND get yourself to an open part of the field when the OLine breaks down, especially when a defender is already in the midst of a tackle, so that you can throw an un-impeded pass. Mobility is also the ability (and will) to sprint down the field for a significant gain when you see that all of your receivers are covered.

    The “slip and fall” is one example of less mobility. Dropping the snap can be considered a mark against your mobility as well. The fact that he reacts fast enough to still attempt to make a play after HIS mistakes falls into a different category. It shows his grit and determination, but the mistakes themselves show that he is losing some portion of his former skills, and create too much opportunity for disaster.
