Question - “Can Brett Favre be relevant this year? Should he take another snap or should he politely go away after his waffling back and forth?”
thanks everyone and remember....there's no right or wrong answer here....so let's have some fun!!!
I can give you 25 million reasons.....
Always open light. It’s not what you open with, it’s what you finish with. Louie Simmons
Adrian Peterson is a stud RB, but Favre’s presence further increases his value. Favre’s big arm and his playmaking ability forces opposing defenses to stack the box with 8 defenders less frequently, thus opening additional running lanes for Peterson to run through. At least, that is how it works on paper. What truly happens remains to be seen, but you can bet Peterson will find additional running room with Brett Favre on board.
While it’s true Favre will throw a considerable number of interceptions, he certainly makes the Vikings offense more potent.
Its just a game, he obviously plays because he enjoys the sport; Until his playing, winning/losing, effects the price of beer in China, who cares?Originally Posted by
To answer the first question: Yes. Brett Favre will be extremely relevant. He'll be relevant in the fact that he'll be playing for a winning team. He's playing for a good team and does not have to do much on his own to be successful. It's Adrian Peterson's team. The Vikings are a running team that now has a big passing threat. They have very good receivers that can go get the ball down the field in Bernard Berrian and now even in Percy Harvin. They have such an explosive offense with such good talent that if Adrian Peterson runs the ball 25+ times a game and Favre throws the ball down the field a couple of times a game, they are going to be one of the best teams in the league. Yes, Favre will throw his interceptions from all the home-run balls he throws, but he now has receivers that work in his favor and can just flat-out out-run the defense, making his throws have to be less perfect and leading to less interceptions this year. I see his passing yards going down slightly as opposed to other years, but his interceptions will go down a bit as well. I really think this is going to be one of his better seasons in terms of efficiency and passer-rating. As for the other question, it's really a mixed bag. He still has the tools and the skills to be able to play at a high level, and for that reason he shouldn't go away. However, I think what he did with the Vikings really caused a lot of internal problems because he couldn't just give them an answer in the first place. Then, he made things worse and decided to just sign after training camp was over. That's really not the way to win over friends and be one with your teammates. He got babied, but it's the Vikings fault for letting him do that in the first place. When it's all said and done, I think everyone will forget that because Favre and the Vikings will be winning a lot of games. I don't like what Favre did, but I certainly love to see him on the field and so do the Vikings fans. Their ticket sales went up dramatically with his signing. It's a win-win for that team with the money he's bringing in and all the wins he's going to get. I say Favre should keep playing as long as he's able to help a team win.
There are many variables to this question but the obvious answer is, YES. The vikings NEED an experienced QB like Favre with a rocket arm and a team first mentality. The vikings D (as long as the suspension on the 2 defensive lineman stays frozen) is one of the most physical in the league, try running the ball on them. The only piece to the puzzle they were missing was a smart, experienced Qb, and with Brett Favre, seriously? I don't want to be one who jumps on the bandwagon and says "Vikings, super bowl" now that favre is there but in all honesty, it's an extremely possible scenario. He's the most experienced QB in the game and he wont need to throw the ball 40 times a game like he did with the jets, thats why his arm gave out around week 13-17. Adrian Peterson, aka All day aka AP aka the best running back in the game will assure that. Not only will this move in personnel help this and possibly next season, but it will allow tavaris Jackson to become twice the QB he is now. I could only imagine what film with a first ballot NFL Hall of Famer would be like.
The bottom line is the Vikings are going to be a force to be reckoned with this year especially later on in the season and playoffs when they really start to click. Most teams peak in the middle/beginning of the season, the vikings...They will peak around week 12. Dangerous.
Farve should of retired last year. He showed his age last year when he started 8-3. In the last 5 games he threw 2 TD's and 9 INT's and missed the playoffs.Yeah he was a good QB in his time, but all good things must come to an end. He doesn't really want to play; when he retired back in 2006, he cried. He said he didn't really think he wanted to play. By the end of the summer, he cried some more, this time he just wants to play football. He just loved the game so much. Then why did he retire in the first place? He was still at the top of his game. Why can't pro athletes walk away with a little bit of dignity. No more crying!!!
He should have retired with Green bay in his vanes instead of waffling. Him going to the ViQueens is a slap in the face to all Packers fans. I hope Green bay annihilates Minn with extreme prejudice this year. Go retire and enjoy the good ole' life in Mississippi already.
I'm sure Adrian Peterson, Bernard Berrian, and Percy Harvin are happy to have him there, if only for a year. Will he be relevant? Yes, to the extent defenses must now plan on a variable besides AP and Visanthe Shiancoe, who should have a fine year as well...
Regardless of how you feel about him, it will never be the failures any TO Experiment seems to turn into.
The comeback I'm more interested in however, is Ronnie Coleman at the 2010 Olympia...
Can Brett Favre be relevant this year? Should he take another snap or should he politely go away after his waffling back and forth?
Will he be relevant this year? It hasn't appeared to be shown this way in his first game. Adrian Peterson will be relevant this year. I personally lost most of my respect for Brett Favre after coming and going and coming and going and press conferences about retirement. To me he is still a Packer and seeing him in another jersey is odd, maybe just because I grew up with him being a Packer. It is kind of like when Michael Jordan came back, should of just quit while you were on top. So, unless his arm comes back and he works better with his receivers I don't think he will be as relevant as some of the QBs of the Vikings. He should have retired one of the greatest of all time as a Packer.
Let's just hope he doesn't pull one of these now...
He should bow down gracefully instead of trying to drag out a what could be terible season for him. He is on a team with a newer fairly good QB and a dominate running back. While the WRs have a little work to do he is to far beyond being able to make them good/better/great WRs. He is now starting to have discomfort and breathing issues, so now he may even be out for awhile. He should take into consideration his injuries, age, family and choose to either be a "guide" on the sideline or a coach somewhere. Be it pros or pee-wees, his time has come and i think sometimes he just doesnt want to let himself out of the spotlight.
When will the prize be given?
I would sure appreciate to be considered
The posts end on friday night at midnight (aka tomorrow)....so let's get some more rolling in here folks!!!
Brett Favre should hang his head in shame. And his antics last year involving the Animal porn was disgraceful. PETA will be all over that sick MFer, bring the entire sport into disrepute.
thanks for jumping in on the thread everyone....I will be posting the winner later today or tomorrow morning!
Also....as of tomorrow there will be a brand new "weigh in" thread to win a different product. Make sure to get in on that one also!!!
