We all have opinions about whether Farve coming to Minnesota is a good or bad thing and frankly I'm getting a little tired of reading about it so I wanted to change the focus of the discussion to what criteria will you personally use to judge whether the Farve deal was a success or failure at the end of the Vikings' season?
Is wins the only criteria?
Is it making the Playoffs?
Going deep into the playoffs?
Winning the superbowl?
Is it his qb rating?
TD to interception ratio?
Or whatever else you think is a criteria.
As part of your answer, after you list your criteria for evaluating Farve's season give a number that in your opinion would indicate success for Farve and one that indicates failure. I am really curious to see how the Farve lover and Farve hater camps criteria will be different, so if you are definitely in one camp please identify yourself. If you're not in either camp just say Undecided
I will post my take later, but put an couple examples below (not my actual take) for use for a format:
Example 1: Farve Lover
Successful season with Farve = 12+ wins, playoffs with a bye or at least one win
Failure season = 9 or fewer wins and missing playoffs and first round loss
Example 2: Farve Hater
Successful Season with Farve = Passer rating above 100, TD to Int ratio >1.5, >3600 passing yards, pro bowl selection
Failure season = Passer rating below 88, TD to Int ration < 1.4, <3,000 passing yards, no playoffs
Let's have some fun with this.Then we can argue about how our performance criteria for evaluating Brett are not realistic.
