Favre The Viking?
Payback. Sometimes, its just that simple. Brett Favre was sent packing (pardon the pun) by the franchise he helped revitalize in the mid 90s last season. Traded to the Jets for virtually nothing, so that Aaron Rodgers could get handed the keys to the car. Someone must have forgotten to run the little story by Ted Thompson on how this worked out for San Francisco in the early 90s. Sure, San Fran got one Super Bowl, but it took Jimmy Johnson retiring (George Seifert never beat Jimmy in the playoffs) for them to finally get by the Cowboys and get the monkey (who knew backups got those things?!) off Steve Youngs back. San Fran got rid of the man who made their franchise something in the 80s, fuck, he made them THE TEAM OF THE 80s and havent been the same since. They havent seen an NFC Championship since 1994, havent advanced past the second round since that Super Bowl winning year either. Miami and Denver have had similar QB issues since their franchise QBs have retired, neither one having any legitimate success since Elway and Marino called it quits. Denver more dubiously, has seen its best QB since Elway hung it up pout his way to Chicago in return for Kyle Orton and a slew of rookies to be named later. But now, Green Bay finds itself faced with a most haunting image. Not just Favre coming back, but coming back in Purple. Viking Purple at that. So to do as one Don King would, Im gonna tell you why it SHOULD happen, why we should allow it to happen and why if youre the Vikes, revolting would be greatly encouraged if at some point before training camp Brett Favre jerseys arent available in Viking Purple.
