Minnesota Vikings To Brett Favre: Thanks, but No Thanks

E Paul LianCorrespondent IJune 16, 2009

The most successful sports franchises have one thing in common...they have executive leadership talent at the top. It's time for the Minnesota Vikings' front office to step up to the plate and make some obvious personnel decisions.

"Thanks but no thanks," would be a place to start with Brett Favre.

How many months have the loyal Vikings fans been taken advantage of with this "will he or won't he" mantra for the 2009 season? Show some leadership guys, make a decision that's in the best interests of Brett Favre, his teammates, the Vikings organization, and all Vikings fans.

Brett Favre's best days are behind him. He hasn't played to his high standards in several years. He needs some help in being pushed out the door.

Former head coach Bud Grant used to scold the media by answering their Monday morning question of who will be starting at quarterback on Sunday with a simple:

"I don't make decisions until I have to...I'll let you know on Saturday."

Saturday has arrived for the Vikings. Cut the strings to Brett Favre, move on, start preparing NOW for a championship season. Show some executive leadership.
