How to Win

Brett Favre

What’s your opinion of Brett Favre’s decision to come out of retirement — again — and play for the Minnesota Vikings?

I’m even more intrigued by why any team would WANT him. Nothing personal. Strictly business. Let’s leave aside Favre’s age and the fact that in the last few seasons he has faded badly late in the year.

Instead, let’s just look at why any team would want an indecisive quarterback. After all, isn’t the QB the one who is supposed to step into the huddle late in the game, and lead his team with his air of reassurance? Isn’t the QB the one who is supposed to instill confidence? Exactly what about Favre right now instills confidence?

Favre can’t even decide whether he wants to retire, much less take command and lead his team to glory.

Meanwhile, I’ve heard commentators wonder whether this deal will affect the balance of power in the conference. I honestly can’t imagine how this could be so.

Obviously, the Vikings think otherwise. They never would have made this move unless they believed he could help. We will see, and so will they.

  2. Coach Tully, The Vikings feel that they must upgrade the production (or lack there of) at the quarterback position. Unfortunately, Brett at 75% is better than anyone else on the roster. On paper this would look like a no brainer, however, we know that games are not won on paper. It will be the intangibles that will determine if this is a good move (ie. how will this affect the locker room?). Will the 2009 Vikings be a team that is united or divided?
