Favre to come back again?

with 2 comments

Just yesterday, ESPN reported that Brett Favre had arthroscopic surgery to repair his torn biceps tendon. This comes weeks after the Vikings had wanted Favre to “unretire”, but only if fully healthy. The fact that Favre had this surgery has to tell you that he wants to come back, because Favre is well known for disliking having to go under the knife.

With the world prepared for yet another Favre return, people begin to look ahead at the Vikings season. With inconsistency previously at the quarterback position with Tavaris Jackson and Gus Frerotte, Minnesota went out and traded for veteran QB Sage Rosenfels this offseason. Although Rosenfels is relatively unproven as a starting QB, he seemed like the best choice for the Vikings. Now with Favre on the horizon, Rosenfels is bumped to the backup role, while Jackson gets to ride the pine at third string. Although , learning from Favre could be beneficial to Jackson if he plans on being a starting quarterback in the NFL someday.

With Favre, the Vikings look like a legitimate Super Bowl contender. With already one of the best running games in the league, and decent receivers in Bernard Berrian and Bobby Wade, Minnesota needs consistency from the passing game. Favre seems like the QB that could provide said consistency, and take the potential-packed Vikings deep into the playoffs in ’09.

And plus, doesnt he just look good in that purple and gold?

  1. If they bring in Favre, Jackson won’t have to worry about learning from him–I would expect him to get released.

  2. No way Jackson would be released. Favre is a year to year basis player, and I think he would finally be done if they won the Super Bowl. Rosenfels isn’t the youngest in the world, and is just an average quarterback in the league. Jackson has glimpses of greatness every now and then, but has to learn how to harness his ablilities.
