Here's the thing. I think this saga, and all the agony it produced, which couldn't be fully released in any kind of public way by the team, now becomes a shared enemy around which the guys in the locker room collect themselves. My prediction. Our big guys come back to training camp on day one saying "let's f***ing do this, fellas." Allen looks both quarterbacks in the eyes and puts fire into their souls. TJ and SR will welcome their competition instead of resenting being relegated automatically to second- and third-string status. We can keep JDB and see if he, in fact, develops. I'm not worried about this ultimately and, in some ways, am actually feeling relieved. This is "not" Favre's team and would have been mistaken for such if he'd come on board. I had to do some unbelievable mental gymnastics to get ready to tolerate seeing Favre in purple and, quite frankly, had to ignore a lot of disappointment just to put myself in a position to feel excited about the year. That's gone now. And I think it all happened in time for our team to use it as motivation. Onward.
