It's funny. People get so caught up in the drama that the media spins about Favre being selfish, and a prima-donna, that they let the real meaning of things slip by. There is an overwhelming excitement within the Vikings team. They know who Brett Favre is and what dimension he brings to their football team. Except for Sage Rosenfels and Tavaris Jackson (the other QB's), everybody from the Vikings, that I interviewed, was jacked up about Favre's presence. And why wouldn't they be? He's a Hall of Fame QB that brings a legitimate threat of a forward pass- something this team wouldn't have had if it went with Tavaris Jackson. Favre's presence, alone, means there is a real possibility of Adrian Peterson breaking the single-season rushing record of 2,105 yards, held by Eric Dickerson. Also, Favre has made a living out of sending TE's to the Pro Bowl, and with Visanthe Shiancoe ready for a breakout season, don't be surprised to see him in Miami. And with Bernard Berrian, Sidney Rice, and Percy Harvin to throw the ball to- behind one of the best offensive lines in football- the "Favre-palooza" that Shiancoe called it, is well worth the price of admission.
Kinda feels like '98... Oh and that Super Bowl was in Miami, too. I'm not saying, I'm just saying. You know what I'm saying...?
And Doogs... if you need any help at the Metrodome, Friday night...
Tune in or get tuned out- it's just Komencentz!
