I send my best regards to you Viking fans concerning your possible pick up of Bret Farve, though I am Bear Fan. One thing I will tell your right off the bat is that I will never give you Viking Fans any grief. I am a football fan that likes discussing football with other fans of other teams and like to gain insights that you can only receive from fans from other cities.
I would think that the Vikings obtaining Farve would actually give Minnesota a legitimate chance at going to the Superbowl. Having a great back like Adrian Peterson would make Favre a very dangerous qb indeed. You can't put too many men in the box to stop Peterson, it you got someone who can throw it downfield and hurt you deep. Football is a rough game that can change a team's makeup in a hurry. One tackle that blows out a knee could take Peterson from Penthouse to outhouse in a hurry. Look at my team, the Bears, MLB Urlacher. His back or neck is a mess and he lost what greatness he had in a hurry. One never knows how long a window of opprotunity for a championship will last. If I were a VIking fan, I would be willing to take a chance on him. IF it works, great. IF not, you probably will still have a young Peterson to try to win it in the future. As a Bear fan, I would not be bothered one iota if Favre lead the Bears to a championship. Just win Baby!
