The QB Conundrum

Posted by cjsiewert on November 21, 2010 – 9:45 pm

Don’t let the title mislead you. If Brett Favre is healthy enough to start and play come game day – even with the Vikings playoff hopes virtually erased by way of a crippling 31-3 loss to the Packers at home on Sunday – he’ll do just that, as he’s done 295 consecutive times over his 20-year career.

But given the fact that the Vikings are now 3-7 and 4 games behind the NFC North leading Packers and Chicago Bears with 6 to play, is it time to give backup QBs Tarvaris Jackson and Joe Webb a look in select situations?

Even with the 2010 season not panning out the way Favre and the Vikings would have liked, I don’t see #4 giving anything but his best effort if he continues to play. There is most certainly a pride aspect to finishing what he came here to do in the first place, and Favre has given little, if any, notion towards a lack of effort in any scenario over his 2 decades in the league.

But if the Vikings are faced with any number of situations that may award Jackson or Webb a glimpse of playing time – whether it’s an insurmountable scoring lead/deficit or just to spell Favre for a series – I don’t see anything negative happening as a result.

A significant attribute that both Jackson and Webb hold over Favre is their mobility. This could give opposing defenses a new aspect to account for when determining their game plan.

Another situation to factor in is the 2011 season. Favre has mentioned numerous times that this is indeed his last season, which would force the Vikings to replace their 41-year old QB. And with the QB position in question for next season, it could be beneficial for the organization to see what it already has in-house with Jackson and Webb.

I realize that fans may not be fond of the idea of Jackson as the Vikings QB in 2011 because of his pedestrian performances in seasons past, but the last point I will raise is that we have yet to see what he can do after nearly 2 seasons of watching and learning from a future Hall of Fame QB. We’ve all seen what that has done for Aaron Rodgers in Green Bay after his 3 seasons on the bench behind Favre, and in the best situation that might translate to Jackson with his tutelage from Favre over the past 2 seasons.

    i think they should go with Webb, t-jack will not be around next season. we are going for a high draft pick now anyway

    You just reiterated everything that I’ve been arguing on the topic since about 3 weeks into the season. The sad fact of the matter is that if we had tried to make a change so much earlier, we just may still stand a chance, but I don’t care how much football Childress thinks we have left, it’s now over because he does not know how to correct a problem.

    I still think Brett is not the only problem. What happened to the number 1 or number 2 defense in the league the past few years? No receivers really, a patchy offensive line. However, If the vikes go 3-8 then give Tjackson a shot. He has had film, but he’s been under Favre for over 1 year see what happens, it will give Brett time off needed and I think things can do better. But Favre is still the goods for me.

    you are right purpleparody. The only thing mr. noodle AKA childress knows how to do, is make an even bigger mess. I really wish the opposing side would throw the ball to a wide receiver and then a few viking players can spear childress. That sure would make my day. lol

    if we lose the Buffalo and detroit game and buffao picks another win, and we lose the last 6 games, we can get the #2 overall pick. play Webb the rest of the year

    I have to disagree with you on this one. Yes, Favre is a Hall of Fame quarterback but for the good of the team he needs to ride the pine and let the other quarterbacks have a chance. How in the world we will ever know if Jackson has learned anything the last couple of years with a play here and a play there in “selected situations?”

    YES MIKE I COMPLETELY AGREE Although in a perfect world i would love to see Joe because his athletic abilities are off the charts i think it is the least we can do to give Tavaris a chance this year to see what he has learned and we must keep Joe because as many people pointed out in pre-season he looks like a young Mike Vick.

    If they get a high draft pick they should go after Jim Harbough for a head coach and then draft Andrew Luck.

    I’m not saying he shouldn’t be benched ( although I hope he isn’t ). I’m just saying, whether it’s Favre, Jackson or Webb, the o-line needs to be revamped. Now.

    so i ask was it in the best interest of the team to release Moss?

    4 games with Moss 86 points
    6 games without 72 points

    in reality, we all know the season is over. but now it is definately time to give jackson the start he deserves, and see if he can be our future QB. we havent seen him in about 2 seasons and sitiing behind brett has done nothing but made him better. and we have to do this, because if jackson doesnt perform then the vikings organization will know they need to draft a quarterback. Locker, or Luck

    It’s obvious that chilly gets some sick enjoyment out of watching Favre getting the beat-down. Maybe that’s why he made sure the O-line was so miserably bad this year and wont fix it. There isn’t any point, other than for Chilly’s amusement, to play Favre anymore so you may as well start working the others, Webb & T.Jack (who may leave next season anyway) to see who’s going to start next year.

    A good coach wins with 11 players on IR..ie McCarthy. The Vikings are pretty hard to watch, it probably is the coaching, and Favre..Seriously though, that defense is the worst part of the team. It is hard to justify a new stadium right now, Ziggy has a lot to digest. Glad I am not him!

    I am a converted Viking Fan and will always be thankful for every Sunday Brett played. But in looking to the future and looking at Brett’s career one is out of balance with the other. No additional record is going change how the game will remember Favre but when a season is over halfway through it is time to start evaluating players that need to be factored into the rebuilding process. At the same time has Favre career and commitment to the game not given him the liberty to make this call?

    Did anyone every recognize T-Jack was kept over Sage for the simple reason of contracts. I think Ryan Mallet could in fact be our quarterback of the future. T-Jack will be gone. But what is critical is keeping Allen, Peterson, Edwards, Henderson, Greenway, K. Williams, Hutch, Havin and Rice on the team. The rest of the team either needs to step up or someone will gladly take their place. It comes down to effort and outside of these names I question the effort especially from the DB’s. If the rumor about Parcell’s is true be happy.

    If Bud Grant was the coach now (and 30 years younger), he’d bench Favre in a hurry and tell the other coaches to shape up. There is no cooperation between the Defensive, Offensive, and Head Coaches right now. And the frustrating thing is I’ve yet to hear Childress admit any responsibilty for the mess that the Vikings are in.

    Farve4Life- I don’t really think that will matter to much next year cause if the season keeps up the way it is going they probably won’t be here next year by there own choice. They will probably want to go to another team (which I would not blame them at this point) or else we will not have a team in Minnesota next year. Chilli is destroying this team and the state of Minnesota.

    1. Fire Childress
    2. Waive Favre (Let him go home to Mississippi where he really wanted to be all year long anyways, let’s face it, he was talked into coming back against his better judgement and then found out when he got there that his go to guy was going to be out until the season was lost) Ouch!
    3. Fire Childress again, just for good measure.
    4. Forget thinking about promoting Frazier to head coach, his D sucks this year, plain and simple.
    5. Really, don’t know where to go after step 4, it all seems way too dark right now with GB having Erin Rodgers for the next 10 years to fall back on. Ugh!

    It was a mistake not firing Chilly last week. After that Bears lost, this team obviously needed new life to get motivated.

    Team started well but after GB took the lead, the team simply gave up, reflection on the coach.

    Zigy deserves blame for standing still and worrying more about his check book and the amount of money he still owes chilly then go for it knowing this was our last chance.

    they seem to get worse every game and we see no adjustments being made. Frazier says his been watching video and working with jared Allen but i see no difference. him and edwards have been irrelevant all year eventhough Edwards did play better today.

    When your logic is that it would be better to have tj in there than Favre because he can run when the offensive line becomes a sieve you are admitting failure. Favre can move plenty well enough, but it would be nice if he could actually have a bit of time.

    I just watched Manning get picked twice and they talked about the pressure causing the interceptions — seriously Farve would love to have the amount of pressure Manning was facing.

    Superbowl chances or not, I would still like to see Favre play the last few games with some chance to show some of the magic he can bring. So perhaps the offensive line will give him a couple of seconds to work with.

    And can someone explain why it makes sense for Childress to cut Randy Moss when Rice was still healing? If the guy doesn’t like the buffet, let him order take-out for God’s sake.

    Lights out. Those that were in self denial after game 6, still are in self denial now. You went on believing BF gives us the best chance to win, Right!!! How stupid can one be. Old, non mobile, shows glimbes of what he use to be, and you still cant let it go. The defense & offense played good for six games until they seen changes were not made at QB position. Brett Farve handicapped Childress. But many wont buy that. Case and point, he had the luxuary of mixing it up with TJ and Ferotte. With Favre a conscience decision was made he was more important than the team, by Childress, Owner, and BF Fans. Well you got what you ask for. Many of us just sit back and look at the circus, because it was quite obvious TJ gave us a better chance to win, however, Childress, Owner, BF and BF Fans, will not allow the back up to shine against the legend. So you keep on watching him, and stop debating weather TJ or Webb is good enough or will play. Enjoy your last few games. I never thought a lot of Minnesota Fans were infactuated with BF. Especially, when we gave him the blues when he was in Greenbay. And TJ if you get any offers from any teams next year take it and set this team back 4 years. This fan base dont appreciate you, so leave on the next thing smokin. Do not allow this team to stop your progression, you will get another chance. They knew BF was not game ready at the beginning of the season. But favoritism overrides hardwork and dedication when icons are involved. “BF can throw Int’s but he gives them the best chance to win” That’s a uck up statement, it’s sad.

    Thank you, mossforlife. I couldn’t have said it better myself. It’s obvious that Farve is hurting. It is selfish to keep playing to keep a streak alive, when you have a healthy, capable backup. Yet, you have all of these BF fans saying that he’s gutting it out for the team. Please. This dude is leading the NFL in turnovers. I don’t think that it’s Chilly’s decision whether or not to bench Farve, because I think that he would have done it weeks ago.

    Fire Childress. Lets face it the season is over and everyone knows it. Send Favre home its time for him to got bck and sit on his tractor. We need to find someone who in free agency or a trade that is a little younger and is a veteran that can throw the ball down the field that is a leader. Lets face it favre is 41 years old and is making the wrong mistakes. Our defense needs to step it up and start sacking the QB, and players that will Pick the ball off. Our offensive line needs to start blocking for the QB, and give the QB some time for to make good decisions with the ball. And our wideouts need to catch the ball when its thrown to them. Percy Harvin have been are 2 most reliable hands. It would be nice if other players would help out. GOOOOOOOOOO VIKINGS.

    I watch the Vikings because of Brett but each week I continuously see one of the worst O-lines in the NFL. They don’t protect their QB! Come on guys, do your jobs! A good idea would be that the O-line players only get their paychecks if they do their job. Works for me.
    As for Chilly, the owner should follow Jerry Jones change he did two weeks ago. Chilly seems oblivous to what’s going around him other than having another piece of gum available as he loses flavor. Brett is still one outstanding quarterback. Too bad Minnesota is showcasing his talents.

    I have said this from day one, Webb should be in the game. I know how well he would contribute, I saw him all through college and Viking fans caught a glimpse of him in pre-season. He has the potiential to be a great player, it is just a shame that the opportunity is locked up at the moment. If you want to blame it on the O-line, and rightfully so, that is fine. Webb should still be in the game whether it is in some sort of rotation with Farve or Jackson. He has a great multiple, dynamic threat much like other QB’s currently having success in the NFL. Build on Webb!

    I think I know the problem, player apathy within the ranks some of the veterans said it best it comes down to individual player performance and some need to step it up. What this club needs in the worst way is a ball-busting, red faced lecture in the staff meeting room by Childress and a few veteran players and tell every player who doesn’t play his heart out and do the best he can do won’t be back next season simple as that. The Vikings are not the place for sandbaggers.

    I hate to say this but sit Favre. Joe Web should be in. He’s fast, big, strong arm, and young. The Vike’s have one of the most talented recieving cores in the NFL, and the team still plays with a ton of heart. This has nothing to do with Brett’s age, it has to do with winning games. You cant turn things around by not changing anything. Trevaris Jackson is a good QB but Web is great. Even Brett said it. Make Brett a QB coach, put Web at the helm, you have Rice back, you have Harvin, Shciancoe, and Berrian, and running Peterson. Thats a dream team. Do it before they get discouraged. Professonal or not there still human.

    Spence,

    As Bruce says, it’s someone else’s fault. He has his nose stuck so deep up Favre’s rear end that his eyes have turned brown. The whole team is a mess, but it starts with the field general, your QB. Favre didn’t come to camp (gee, I wonder if that helps), is old, immobile and still has a propensity to throw the ball away. Do you stick with the old guy, or look to the future and see if you can develop someone else. Trust me, it isn’t everyone else’s fault. Favre needs to take the lions share of the blame, just as he takes the credit when the Vikes win.

    The whole team has packed it in. The Vikings are a joke and everyone is laughing at them. How does it feel to score 3 points? And Spence, did you watch the game. If you start TJ he will have the same numbers as Favre. The reason, a DB can cover anyone for a second and that is all the time the Vikings QB will have time to find a receiver. What needs to happen. FIRE THE FREAKING COACH.

By the way, was that a STATUE of Favre on the field, because he sure was not moving when the pass rush came in, unless it was to go down like he wsa back at his high school prom.

    The viking organization is in complete meltdown. If Childress isn’t fired and Favre replaced with either Webb or Jackson, then the vikes are on their way to LA. The failure of this season falls %100 on the coach. If he knew that Favre wasn’t completely mobile when bringing him back, that’s his fault. You can not blame Favre for this year’s results because of how poor an offense we had and even the defense sucks. He stood in there week after week, playing to win while other star players milked out injuries. I said last week before Chicago, they should of played either Jackson or Webb due to the poor pass protection the offense was doing. Going back to the main problem with our team is Childress. He controls everything, decides everything, is responsible for everything. Fire Childress or get use to no football Sundays watching the Minnesota Vikings unless you move to LA.

    I guess the Packers knew what this meant. It looks like they made the right decision on Favre and are moving in the right direction, even with a team that is decimated by key injuries. The Vikes may want to cut a player(s) that is a year too late, rather than a player that is 3 years too late. Time to let the rebuilding begin.

    I said at the beginning of the year that Favre should never have come back; his heart wasn’t in it and you could tell that from his body language. However I don’t think anyone saw the complete collapse of the team from a year ago. Allen looks horrible, the O line has been crippled from injuries, (not to mention being just plain bad), the secondary is non existant,and the WR corp was a joke. A lot of the problems were due to injuries but the team is lacking that positive vibe. It all goes back to Childress and his mismanagement of the Favre situation and a failure to acknowledge his mistakes. I suspect he will not be fired until the end of the season; too little too late.

    there should be no qb problem. The offensive line cannot open holes for AD they are limited the amount of carries he is getting and O line does not give Farve any time to throw or a chance now to throw with any accuracy. You need a mobile qb what’s the worst he going to do throw int’s worst then Farve right now. He is constantly throwing in very tight coverage and its up to the receivers to fight for the ball. Thats insane. Chilly has no control and he won’t consider taking Farve even for a few plays, its sickening to watch !

    Put yourself in childress’s spot. Most coaches when their qtrback throws 17 interceptions can try a different mix at qtrback. But not here, not when you are the one responsible for breaking the streak. Favre is bigger than the vikings coaching staff. He is bigger than the team just like he was at the Jets. Two teams over three years and both coaches on the chopping block. Think how we will look when Travarius signs with Pittsburgh as a backup and has a better rating than Favres.
    Green Bay was able to see the writng on the wall. Guys like Farve, Moss and T.O. become uncoachable. We all know the qtrback has to lead a team but he also has to follow the lead of the coaching staff or why have a coaching staff. Its part of being a team and when the guy who relays the plays in the huddle breaks the chain is it any wonder problems exist.
    Green Bay in the mist of controversy let Favre go in the best interest of the total team and organization.
    McCarthey and Thompson were hated. Green Bay could have kept Favre and let Aaron Rodgers become a free agent just like Travarius. So where would you rather be now, where Green Bay is or where we are headed.
    Draft a new Quarterback? Why? Favre may play two three more years and under the new contract that new qtrback could be a free agent again.

    Brett actually does a very good job at extending plays, he gets sacked because the O-line sucks not because he is 41.

    GET IT THROUGH YOUR HEADS, TJ sucks.. Chilly is not good friends with Brett and knows his going to get fired but he sticks with Brett because he knows TJ sucks.

    The players i dont question as far as heart is Brett, Harvin, Edwards, AP. You can question Brett decision making on the field and on practice but on gametime, i dont think theirs a player out there that wants to win more than him.

    The only way we see Jackson or Webb behind center is if Childress gets fired first or Wilf assures him that his future with the team is secure.

    Get a grip. Favre is done after this year. I doubt like heck he’s want to come back, and I doubt they’d ask him back if he did. He is breaking down and you gotta think this team is in rebuilding mode now. He came back to play on a contender… this team is far from that and won’t contend next year either. Its BROKEN.

    Alfred, Childress couldn’t give a dang about Favres streak… he’s trying to save whats left of his own career. If the Vikes had Rodgers sitting on the sidelines, Favre would have gotten yanked off the field so fast his cleats would still be sitting in the backfield…. smoking….

    Someone was complaining about APs carries. Yeah he should get more carries, but when the coaches call run plays inside the tackles and the O Line can’t open a hole, what’s the point. How many times did AP run up Ryan Cooks backside yesterday? When you are down by 3 scores, can you hand the ball off to AP so he can fight for 3 yards?

    Mark, you lost me there towards the end, but I agree with the sentiment. I think there is greatness on this team, lurking in the shadows. It is held in the hearts of men like Peterson, Harvin, Greenway, and yes, Brett Favre. #4 has it in his heart… he just doesn’t have it in ihis body anymore, sadly. The issue is leadership… that’s something that Favre brought to the team last year with his personality and his play. They depended upon it this year as well; lord knows they don’t accept it from their coaching staff. It obviously hasn’t panned out this year.

    During the remainder of this season, I’ll be looking for some glimmer of hope for this team in the next year. Do we need a new coaching staff? Other than a few position coaches, I’d say yes. Do we need to draft a new QB? Most likely, but we desparately need help in other areas as well. Do we need to keep our chins up as fans and not verbally beat down the entire team after each loss? Absolutely.

    childress has taken a lot of blame and he should…but spielman has to take responsibility for his drafting,player decisions at the beginning of the season..he has been given a bye and i am not sure why…bevell has produced the most conservatibve and predictable offense and fraziers d strategies has been a failure…at 3-7 we can say lets play our young prospects for the future but the problem is we hardly have any..tj will only be the qb next year if childress is back and if that is the case tj has to play this year .

    As I said 4-5 weeks ago. Viking players had to beg Favre to come back. It’s pretty clear he wasn’t 100% recovered from his surgery and you could see that in the 1st game against New Orleans. Then his go to guy Rice doesn’t have surgery on off season. And when this team started out 0-2 you could see the body language was bad and chemistry was not there just like it is today. Yes, I do think this team quit weeks ago. I don’t understand how you blogers can blame Favre for everything. He was amazing last year. Without him last year were probably a 7-9 or 8-8 team. I know this is a new year and it has sucked from the start, but this team has under achieved all year on both sides of the ball. And another thing it shouldn’t matter who’s the coach because these players are paid alot of money to produce everyday!!!! Going forward this team is going to have to make some moves and start rebuilding for the future, because were going in the wrong direction and the rest of the conference is going in the right direction.

    Childress knew d@mn well Favre was a 40-year old qb with a bad ankle when he sent the plane for him. Yet he did NOTHING to beef up the o-lne. He could of at least tried to talk Rice into seeing a specialist during the offseason about whether he needed surgery or not, instead of “leaving it up to him” which has become a patented Childress cop-out. Call me paranoid or a Favre apologist if you want, but consciously or not, Chldress set Favre up to fail. Think about it.

They definetly need to get rid of loadholt this big kid can’t block anybody without making some kind of penalty. I love to watch professionals play who’s # 76 did anyone see the packer run right by him he never as much as stuck his hand out to touch him let alone tackle.

    we can blame farve all we want,but this team sucked all year on both sides of the ball. I guess it’s his fault for getting the sh-t kicked out of him all year because our high school o-line couldn’t block anyone. Yes, he’s threw a many of int’s this year compared to last year but how many times has our sorry as- defense made stops this year and made tackles when we needed to make a stop. And how much time has favre had to get rid of the ball to make plays? NONE!!!!!! Our sub-par receivers can’t get open with 5-6 seconds so how does it work with 2 or less seconds. You figure it out.

    We are the most predictable team in the NFL! Defenses know Favre can’t scramble nor will he ever run past the line of scrimage…

    The Vikings are the worst in regards to give-aways vs. take-aways. How can you win games when you get inside the twenty and continue to give possession away…have a nice drive that takes 6 minutes off the clock to end up with 0 points!

    I feel that has been the biggest issue for the Vikings this year!

    Why must we honor or even care about Favre’s records…he isn’t getting the job done! The owners and coaches must think he sh*ts ice cream and spits lighting bolts. They should have benched him early on…see if he was really hungry to play.

    JOE WEBB is the future QB! Develop him now…Even Jackson deserves a shot…he has put years into this club!

    It’s time for Favre and Chilly to face reality and take their show to the over 40 league!

    Here is the perfect way to release Childress now without changing to much else from a personell perspective, and handle the quaterback issues without offending anyone:

    Offer the headcoach position to Brett upon the immediate release of Brad Childress.

    Heres why:

    1. He can then make the decision to not play and retire all the while still having total control over the decision.

    2. This gives him an excuse (which he needs) not to play the remainder of the season and for us to try the other guys.

    3. He probably knows more about the game than anyone on the coaching staff already.

    4. He knows the team.

    5. He can’t stay away from the game, this is the perfect seque.

    6. He is a leader, personable, popular, smart, competitive.

    Tell us what you think.

    Packer fans have always suspected that Favre had it in his contract that he couldn’t be pulled from a game. He probably took a million less to have it in. For the Packers, he played hurt in many games when ANY backup would have done better, and yet was never pulled. Looks like he still has it in his contract.

    Lot’s of good comments here. Let me make it clear that Childress is now out and might I say good bye Chilly. I did not like this hire to begin with. Next, Favre has not and will not quit on this team. Anyone that thought he would be able to repeat last season was just living in a dream world. Let’s face it…he isn’t as young as he was when he won a super bowl. I still think you start the Hall of Fame qb for the remainder of the season as long as he can physically play. The o-line will now jack themselves up and play better as will everyone on this team. You will see a TEAM on the field now…not just a group of egos. As far as our other qb…Jackson should have been gone already. He came in as Chilly”s stupid project. Let’s face it…he will never be anything better than a backup in the NFL. He is much better off the bench than as a starter. Webb?? Why is everyone so high on this guy? I seriously don’t understand. He is not an answer to any problem. This guy is another Chilly project and frankly IF he can play in the NFL, he will never be a starter for a good team. He will not be anything better than a wildcat or third string qb. We have to look to free agency and the draft to get at least two qb and I think we could all agree we need to address the secondary. Extremely weak and showing how bad we are without Griffin.

    The Vikings are so far out of playoff contention it’s ridiculous. I love Brett; it’s hard not to given his credentials, but it is time for the Vikings to decide what fat needs to be cut from this roster before next season. Returning next season is enough core talent to be a playoff team. Favre has thrown more interceptions and lost more fumbles than any player in the NFL. That is sickly self destructive. Give him his start, and then see what T-Jack can do. I know he was a Childress project, but it’s not like every player Childress picked up was bad AP Brett Favre Percy

    Favre has only had a handful of worthwhile displays of athleticism. HE’S HORRIBLE. T-Jack is a capable QB with occasional mental lapses due to inexperience. Give him more experience. Favre is a year from using diapers and watching MASH re-runs in an old folks home. Favre was given the keys to the Ferrari and crashed into the median because his reactions aren’t what they used to be. He’s a drama queen, and his off the field attention has turned him into a nutcase, inevitably attracting the same attention as the love boat scandal. I dare athletes to live virtuous lives and care about more than just how much they can reel in at the end of the fiscal year. This season has been exhausting, and while I still am and forever shall remain a Purple and Gold for life, my tolerance for insubordination and incompetence has reached an all-time low.

    Though I feel our main problem is our Offensive Line I think Joe Webb has that “It” factor like certain QB’s have like Bradford or Stafford. No disrespect to Favre but the team is still more important that ant one player. Besides, putting Webb in especially because of the line having trouble protecting might be the spark this team needs.

  231. By Ann on Nov 22, 2010 | Reply

    Favre’s not the problem. The O-line, the play-calling, the lack of healthy receivers and Childress all have a lot to do with the interceptions–and the lack of consistently good play. Fortunately, Childress has been taken care of, and I hope much of the O-line, defense and receiver malaise can be cured by that one subtraction.

    Next year the Vikings will need a new QB because of Favre’s retirement, but it won’t be TJack. He already proved he’s mediocre at best, and the only reason he’s around is because Chilly wouldn’t give up on his draft project. If they’d have kept Sage instead, he might be an adequate interim QB while the team develops a promising rookie (as in top few picks).

    As for Webb, he’s likely to be another TJack in the making–small school player, drafted with the hope he could become a receiver, etc. What seems to make sense in light of the present options is to try to trade during the offseason for Kevin Kolb or draft a QB at #1 and trade for a serviceable interim guy like Sage or someone with a similar or better history.

    Say what you want about Favre he certainly has had a bad year. Let me remind you though he played extremely well last year and everyone was singing his praises. The guy gives his heart and soul every game out so show a little respect!! On that note it would be nice to see them make a change at quarterback just to see if T’Jack has actually learned anything or if Webb can read a defense and play well in the NFL.

    See…… I told you before that it’s in Favre’s contract that he can’t be benched. Now the new coach has been informed of that, so he has no choice and he has to play him no matter what. If he had a choice, there would be no reason for him to play Favre at this point. There is nothing for the team to gain, the only thing it helps is Favre’s ironman record.
