I'm sure every Vikings fan or every football fan for that matter, is getting sick of all the Favre talk.  Well I think the Minnesota Vikings can win without future Hall of Fame Quarterback Brett Favre.

First of all the man needs to retire. Favre is nothing but a "drama queen".  The man is forty years old, sometimes you just gotta know when to hang up the cleats. The Vikings are better off without the media being everywhere Favre goes.

Sage will win out the starting Quarterback position, you can quote me on that. He will surprise everyone. In 2007, with only five game starts, he threw for fifteen touchdowns and twelve interceptions with a 64.2 completion percentage. In 2008, he threw six TDs and ten INTs but he had a 66.2 completion percentage. However last year, he also beat teams like the Titans and the Bears. His only problem is his occasional lack of good decision making. The Texans should have beat the Colts but we all know about Sages's famous helicopter spinning fumble technique that lost them the game basically. If not, let me refresh your memory:

However, if Sage does not win out the job in Minnesota I would be completely satisfied with TJackson under center. Last season in five game starts he only had a 59.1 completion percentage. Keep in mind that same year he also threw for nine TDs, four of which were completions against NFC Champion Arizona Cardinals, and only two INTs.  Jackson needs to use another part of his game more....his feet.  Jackson wants to have a quality passing game, but he needs to realize it is that much harder for defenses to draw up a game plan against a mobile quarterback.  He only had about 145 yards rushing last season, but could of easily had more.

The Minnesota Vikings do not need Brett Favre coming into town.  They are better off working with what they have for this season and for the future.
