Favre to Sign with Vikings?

Aug 18, 2009

WCCO TV is reporting that Brett Favre will sign with the Vikings today.  This is what I suspected when Favre initially said “No” to the Vikings. It’s just a matter of time until Favre gets the itch or the Vikings realize they do not have a NFL caliber starting QB.  Favre gets to skip training camp and show up when it really matters.  If you bought into his “retirement”, shame on you.  If he does sign, you can bump Bernard Berrian and Visanthe Shiancoe up a bit in your fantasy rankings.

    You’re not alone – I didn’t believe him either. It was just a matter of when he would come back.

    Yep. It raised my eyebrows after the solid game Sage turned in. It’s like they knew it all along.

    I can’t wait for next season’s retirement, 6 month “will he or won’t he come back” affair on ESPN, and finally his signing with another team without a decent quarterback. Oye.

    Funny. Start the 2010 Favre watch now.

    Hopefully by the end of this season ESPN will launch ESPN4 – a 24/7 channel dedicated to Favre, so the rest of us who don’t care can watch ESPN and not be bothered with the “will he stay or will he go” nonsense.

    Favre reminds me of the classic John Belushi SNL skit “The Thing That Wouldn’t Leave”

    I hope he has enough to pull out a final Super Bowl like John Elway…

    I’d rather watch him crash and burn.
