Brett Favre is a mess. We don’t care about him. We don’t want to hear about him anymore. But as non-Green Bay Packer fans, we would LOVE to see him suit up in Vikings purple.
The only people who don’t want to see Favre as a Viking work for the Packers organization. But it’s good for football. The NFL would greatly benefit from a Favre/Minnesota combo. More tickets would sell. More jerseys would sell. More people would watch games. The season opener would be ridiculous. What’s not to love?
If they really want to screw the pooch, trade him to Chicago. Much less sensational of a story, but Chicago is impotent at this point and won’t be a serious threat. Favre makes Minnesota a contender and Chicago a little more than a joke.
Adrian Peterson would welcome the air support to keep the defense on their toes while he racks up another 1,400+ yard season.
As a fan, I want Favre in purple. Make it happen. Do whatever it takes. Make the NFC interesting again. Give us three legitimate contenders in NYG, Dallas, and Minnesota. Then we’ll have some great football to watch this Fall as the greats battle it out.
Or don’t. Let Favre sit on the sidelines for $12 million or whatever ridiculous amount he makes. Maybe get him to make the drinks. Get something for your money! Sheesh.
