Apparently, Brett Favre will become the New York Jets starting quarterback this morning.
According to ESPN, the terms of the trade include a poison pill provision that would send three Jets’ first round draft choices to the Packers if Favre was subsequently traded to the Vikings. Clearly, Favre wanted to play for the Vikings with a passion and the Packers‘ sabotage of his wish shows they’re just a bunch of scaredy cats.
It shoud be quite obvious by now that Green Bay is deathly afraid of the Vikings; Favre in Purple would’ve been far more than they could take.
As I’ve said, with or without Favre, the Vikings are set at quarterback this season.
Yet, it would have been worth a second-round pick to see Favre in Purple on opening day…at Lambeau Field…as the Packers retired number 4. Heh.
As for the rest of the season, I don’t think anyone in their right mind passes on the opportunity to bring in a Hall of Fame quarterback with a good season or two left in him. And he could very well have taken us far; but he also could’ve stunk, badly. Favre doesn’t have a stellar record in the Metrodome and his interception total would likely have skyrocketed as a result.
It’s been almost as much fun watching the Drama Queen sticking it to his former team and Packers’ fans as it has been astonishing at how forgiving Cheeseheads have been of this 38 year old brat.
So we beat on, with TJax at the helm of a much-improved squad this year and we’ll be just fine.
