It would be great to have Brett Favre on the Minnesota Vikings but what he did in the off-season so far is what I am deeply worried about.

Instead, Minnesota has been trying to get Favre when we could have been trying to get other players besides an old 40-year-old quarterback. 

It is possible the Vikings may not even get number four, which makes this year's off-season go a little down the drain as they have spent this whole off-season mostly on this Brett Favre saga going on.

Just think of what the Vikings could of gotten besides a probably old, washed-up quarterback: probaby a backup or starting tackle with Phil Loadholt because I believe Minnesota really don't need a guy like Ryan Cook.

It is also enormously distracting to the other quarterbacks Minnesota has in Tarvaris Jackson and Sage Rosenfels. If Minny uses T-Jack or Sage, trust me, we will definitely not get the best out of any of those guys..

Rosenfels announced that he moved his whole family to Minnesota to compete for the starting job.

Now you see what I mean? This off-season has been damaged for the Minnesota Vikings. All because of this saga we call The Brett Favre saga.
