I'm a big vikings fan, it would be a great fit, but it still looks very very wrong.

That's it, I threw up in my mouth a little sick .

I don't know, maybe if we could get used to it, it would be good and Tjack would get another year. But the BF has no track record of helping young QB's.

Who cares about Tjack or next year. JUST WIN BABY!!!

I'm sure Booty would be willing to give up #4 too.

Favre a Favorite to Play With Vikings Say Oddsmakers

If Brett Favre comes back to play during the 2008/2009 season, it will be with the Minnesota Vikings - not the Green Bay Packers. This is the opinion of one online gambling HSOforum that has placed odds of 1/2 on Favre playing with the Vikings as opposed to the 1/1 odds of him playing with the Packers.

BetUS.com released the odds on Wednesday.

"Brett Favre may well be the third greatest quarterback in the history of the NFL, and as such he will be missed dearly" stated BetUS.com spokesman Reed Richards. "Our expert oddsmakers felt it necessary to provide fans with a sense of closure, and some idea as to what he will be up to next."

Tim Froberg of the Post-Crescent writes on the impact of Favre emerging this upcoming season as a Viking or Bear:

For most Packers fans, bizzaro world is Brett Favre donning the dreaded purple of the Vikings or the nightmarish navy blue of the Bears.

Favre in a Minnesota or Chicago uniform? That's like Clark Kent stepping into a phone booth and emerging as … Lex Luthor.

Still, it can happen. Judd Zulgad of the Minneapolis Star says the scenario is not likely, however.

"Despite the fact many have speculated Minnesota would be an ideal landing place for Favre, the Packers aren’t going to let that happen. The only way Favre ends up with the Vikings or Bears — two clubs that would seem like pretty good fits — is if the Packers release him. No matter how much Green Bay General Manager Ted Thompson wants Favre to go away, he isn’t going to simply let Favre walk. It would be too dangerous because he knows that Favre might sign with one of the Packers’ arch-rivals because he’s, well, Favre."

In my mind If Favre ends up playing for the Vikes and wins any games or even the superbowl there would be an asterisk after each win. Winning is great but not at the cost of loosing the Identity of the team.

This is not a slam on Favre or the Packers if anything it is a recognition to what Favre and the Packers have done. Favre is a Packer and any team who may get him Packer land can take part ownership in any success or failure(I had to put failure in there being I'm a Viking fan grin)he brings to the team he plays for.

I tend to agree, look at some of the other greats. You had Montana, Rice, Emmit Smith, and many many more. Just never looked right seeing them in other uniforms. I guess it's the way of free agency though.

Anyone remember how much the packer fans HATED Moss? Then he became available and they wanted him in Green Bay. I realize that Moss is no Bret Favre but it would be nice. Imagine that line with AD and #4. I have always, and will always, hate the Packer team but I especially hate their delusional fans. To me this would be the best way to stick it to all those Packer fans that I've hated over the years.

Likewise. It would make me laugh to see an actual purple #4 line up as the Vikings QB...the Vikings fan's most hated player of all time, now controlling their destiny.

Priceless.

That being said, I'd rather Favre stay retired and be remembered as a life-long Packer (forget that stint in ATL which meant nothing). If he wouldn't have retired after this past season I'd been happy to be able to watch him another year too, but since he did it's time to move on because if he does end up playing for GB the soap opera will continue the entire season about him staying around and whether or not Rodgers should be in there instead. If he does play elsewhere the Vikings would be my choice because I could get a lot of mileage out of that one. grin

I agree. The Pack HATED Moss, but when he became available...they fell all over themselves screeming to sign him.

The Pack have done little with their team to please Favre. In a way, he is "getting back at them". Hard to do when they consider him a legend.

So, the Timberwolves won the Championship this year for Garnett won? No...we can take a little pride in that Garnett won...but MN did not win.

Pack fans saying that they will have more pride than ever if Favre plays for us are kidding themselves.

You guys can have him. Even with our Weak QB's, I don't want to see him in a Bear uniform. Good Luck though, remember Favre Has 5 wins to 10 losses in the metrodome for his career, actually I hope you get him, might even the odds for our trip up there. He Sucks in Domes.

NO THANKS...he's washed up.

There is no way he brings what he brought to the table last year.

He was mediocre for 9 years and played well last year.

We don't need him.

I would have to agree that if he comes back, it would make sense to be in the Humpty dome. He is a southern boy and can't handle the tundra in December and January anymore. As a realistic Vikes fan, he would be ten times better than TJack. I don't believe that kid will ever get it. I would love to be proven wrong though. I just can't imagine the pack letting him come over here without giving away the team for years to come. I also agree that since he is the one that pulled the plug, stay retired and a PACKER legend.

The numbers he posted last year wouldn't indicate he was washed up.

Comp Att % Yards Avg. TD Int Rtng

356 535 66.5 4,155 7.8 28 15 95.7

The guy has averaged 26 TD passes a season. He has made decent WR's look good. I would definitely take him on the Vikes.

And what's his record in the dome? Don't want him here myself.

    • Actually, you just chose not to.
    • I've had a Marcum camera for many years and have found it extremely educational.  When I take new anglers on the ice, they love watching the fish.  Never had the camera spook a fish.   I used a Marcum battery-powered panner to rotate the camera, and that helps identify my lure.  However, you also have to be pretty confidant with the depth of your jig, so that it will show up on the camera.   I've found the camera of limited value during the summer, because it's constantly moving up and down, and a little side to side.  Even if I can find my jig, it's not for long.  What I use the camera for during soft water season is to identify bottom structure and get a general idea what's down there.     During hard water season, I use it primarily to see bites before they happen.  Not only do I know exactly what's near or looking at my jig, but I can see when they're actually going after it.  I have pulled the hook away from fish that were obviously too small, and also been able to set the hook on a bite before I could feel it.   I love my flasher, but I have out-fished buddies with my camera.

    • Now that's funny.  I chose not to answer a ignorant question that an elitist like yourself could care less the answer to.  The only reason you want an answer to that question is to spend the next week trying to find some ignorant reason he/she is a bad choice. #rentfree
    • But you couldn't articulate who your favorite Trump picks for justices were, or why.
    • Many of the resorts / cabins where I stay on weekend fishing outings do not have a fish cleaning house. I also do not like the smell of dead fish from the cleaning process in my home. My wheel house is a fishing shack only, non-sleeper, which I take off the ice each night. It has both A/C and propane heat so I usually plug it into an AC outlet at night.   I decided to build a retractable / drop-down fish cleaning table 17” x 48” up and out of the way while on the ice and a warm place to clean fish. I use clear news print between the my fish cleaning board and the table to eliminate the need to wash the table every time I use it. Functionally works well, still needs some finish touches, paint, stain, rust treatment. I can also see many uses for this table while on the Ice. Fish Cleaning Table.mp4
    • Big win for the team today. Not many folks thought they would go into Carolina and leave 3-0. If this offense can get their sh$t together this may be a fun year. Defense is the real deal.
