You have got to be freaking kidding me.
After spending all week getting Joe Webb prepared for his first ever NFL start and the excitement that's come with it among the Minnesota Vikings' fan base, we get this from Chip Scoggins of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune just a few minutes ago on Twitter.
Brett Favre has been upgraded from out to questionable tonight. He will throw 2 1/2 hours before game time to see if he can play.
My reaction? Let me put this as delicately as I can.
No. No, no, no, no, and no.
I don't want to see Brett Favre out there this evening. I want to see Joe Webb out there this evening. There is no reason for Brett Favre to be out there this evening, particularly if he is injured and unable to play at full capacity.
I absolutely can't believe this. I'm having trouble even formulating the words to express how I'm feeling about this right now.
You guys try. Discuss below.
