The Wheels on the bus go round and round
Here we go again. Brett Favre to the Minnesota Vikings? I thought we got off this train. Yahoo is reporting that Brett Favre could be signing a $12 million deal to join the Vikings. Here’s the way I read this situation. Minnesota went into the preseason thinking that signing Favre would be nice. But not really commited to it, with the idea that Tarvaris Jackson or Sage Rosenfels would step up and win the job.
Well, after one preseason game, in which Rosenfels look pretty good and Tarvaris Jackson didn’t, the Viking braintrust decided that hey, maybe the Brett Favre idea might work out well after all. at least it would give them two NFL starters on the roster, instead of a starter and a project that might not work out. Bottom Line, the Brett Favre Magical Mystery Tour is on again and there’s no telling where we’ll get off this train.
After a carrer stint with the Green Bay Packers, a disheartening year with the New York Jets, and flirtations with every NFl team in need of a quarterback, Favre might have found a home with the Minnesota Vikings. Or maybe not. Maybe he’ll just continue the endless circling and keep everyone guessing for the next decade. Let me off the bus please.Eric Drouant
