Favre playing Grab-Ass, Vikes set to dominate
Our boy, Favre, is back to his old pre-season shenanigans with a supposed text rumor of a retirement threat causing widespread speculation, and more rumor of a counter offer by the Vikes of $20 mil if he plays. Sounds like classic grab-ass to me, but I do want to see him play. Part of the foil may be an effort to ditch on the 1st game or games in an effort to lessen the beatings he has to take to make it down the stretch into the Playoffs. Honestly, forget that first game rematch against New Orleans. It's the first game of the season, and a non-conference one to boot. I'd punt and play it like a pre-season. Put in the scabs. who cares. Save the hammer for later down the line. With the williams wall intact, and new weapons in the back field, the vikes are in this for the long haul.
