With the Vikings two wins away, or one win and one Packer loss away from clinching the NFC north, what can you say about Brett Favre now?

He's a traitor? Okay, maybe he is.

He's selfish? Yeah, but what player isn't selfish in someway?

They all want the same thing: to win. Most of them would sell their soul to the devil to win.

If he's selfish because he wants to win, I'll take selfish all day.

He's indecisive? As far as I see it, he's been very decisive the 24 times this season he has thrown TD passes.

Say what you will, but bottom line is that he is, at worst, an indecisive, selfish traitor whose team is 10-1 and has all but wrapped up the NFC north.

As I've said before, what he has done in the off-season does not matter. The 2,874 yards, 24 TDs, only three INTs, 69.2 passing percentage, a league leading 112.12 QB Rating, and the 10-1 record is all that matters.

I think if he hasn't earned the respect he deserves yet, then he never will. He is doing what most 40 year-olds can only dream of, ex-NFL players included. Not only is he the starting QB of the second-best team in the NFC at 40 years of age, he's doing it very successfully.

The man has obviously earned his stripes back.

I know, I know. He's a jerk, a traitor, and selfish, but lets be real: Wouldn't you rather be a selfish, traitorous jerk at the helm of a 10-1 team having one of the best, if not the best, seasons of your career instead of being the overlooked hero/fan favorite sitting on the bench for a team fighting for its playoff hopes; or sitting at home knowing you still have "it"?

Call me crazy, but if it were me I'd say paint me purple and call me a Viking.
