It's so hard to say goodbye . . .
Brett Favre is back and nobody is really surprised. The Vikings are once again a Super Bowl Contender. A couple weeks ago people were getting ready to say good bye to a legend. Today there are reports coming out that Favre is ready to give it one more go.
Curt Schilling's ankle and red painted sock is no longer the most important ankle in sports history. Favre's ankle was making his decision to return hard, but it sounds as if it's as ready as it will ever be. Favre is back and here are ten things that will happen because of his return.
The King of New Orleans will have to take a back seat to Favre on Opening Day
With Favre behind center the Vikings should defeat the Saints on opening night. This is a rematch of the NFC Title game that still haunts Favre. He thinks about this game everyday, and that is one of the biggest reasons he is on his way to Minnestoa.
AP Will Run Wild in 2010
At 87 years old Favre can't expect to do it all through the air. Adrian Peterson was shown up by Chris Johnson in 2009, but don't expect that to happen again in 2010. Look for AP to lead the league in rushing and jump to an early lead for the rushing title. The Vikings will try their hardest to keep Favre fresh for the end of the season.
Cutler will have to wait another year to play in a playoff game with the Bears
I thought the Bears had what it took to win the NFC North if Favre didn't come back. Favre is back and now I don't see them making the Playoffs. They will be in the hunt for a Wild Card but the Packers and Redskins should take the final two spots.
PS: Eagles will win the NFC East, Sorry Boys
Mr. Rodgers is still second Fiddle to the man in the Wranglers
The Packers will not win the NFC North with Favre coming back and that will take Aaron Rodgers out of the MVP race. He has all of the tools to be a great quarterback and an MVP someday, but as long as the old dude is playing against him twice a year he won't win an MVP or beat him.
Seeing another Rice in the Pro Bowl will be nice
Sidney Rice will provide the Vikings with a deep threat and should be a touchdown machine. Look for Rice to make the Pro Bowl and not play because the Vikings will have just played a game the week before.
No Love for Lovie
Lovie Smith will be fired after the 2010 season because Favre will make it almost impossible for the Bears to make the playoffs. The Bears can't afford to miss the playoffs again, and that is exactly what will happen now that Favre is coming back.
This game will be huge on opening night
There is no doubt in my mind that this game will be one of the most hyped opening night games in the history of the NFL. It's game time baby, and this is a great way to start the season.
Romo is no Favre and will never be one
When I think of Favre, I think of the guy who refused to miss a game even though he had a broken thumb. Then I think of the guy who missed playing time because he broke his pinky. Then I think of that same guy who used his bye week during the playoffs to go to Mexico with his then hot, now fat girl friend. You know who I'm talking about right? The same guy who fumbled the potential game winning field goal against the Seahawks in 2007? The same guy who has only won one playoff game?
The Cowboys will miss the playoffs in 2010 because they don't have a quarterback capable of taking them to the next level.
Sorry Sean, you won't get one of these in 2010
The Saints will play the Vikings in the first game of their NFL Season and they will lose. They will also play the Vikings in their last game of the season with the same outcome. The Saints will lose to the Vikings in the NFC Championship Game in 2010.
Favre will not win the Superbowl in 2010
Favre has won plenty of awards in his career and he came back to win the big one again. Unfortunately he will fall short of that goal. I feel that the Vikings will win the NFC and make it to the Super Bowl. I haven't decided who they will play yet, as the AFC looks to provide us with a tight race. So I'll "Randomly" select a team and score just to give everyone a laugh or two.
