Report: Favre to sign with Vikings today
Madison.com sports — 8/18/2009 10:17 am

Brett Favre will sign with the Minnesota Vikings on Tuesday, according to a report from a Minneapolis television station.

Citing a "high-level source" within the organization, WCCO-TV reported that Favre -- who rebuffed the Vikings on the eve of training camp -- is flying to Minneapolis this morning and will join the team this afternoon.

A plane with a Vikings logo took off from the airport at Hattiesburg, Miss., this morning, according to WCCO.

OBVIOUSLY he just didn't want to go to camp. Plain and simple. What else will he not want to do?

Anyone wanna bet? He won't make the season healthy.

why us (people from MN)?

I am going to have to ask the wife if we can move to WI just so we don't have him on "our team"!

but I agree with xcr440.......and my response is, if you can't practice with the team you should not be playing with the team!

He landed at St Paul Holman Field at 11:30 am with Childress there to meet him. On way to Winter Park in Eden Prairie, with extra cops there for security. For better or worse, the result is as expected. He successfully avoided training camp!

I really hope none of this is true. I've always been a huge #4 fan bu I'm starting to think he's lost his mind and turning into more of a drama queen rather than a guy that still has passion for the game. If he does sign with them I hope the Packer fans give him a warm welcome back in GB then spank him on the field!

Hey Chad, that spanking part....how about on his &#34;new&#34; home turf at Home. Living here in Green Bay, not to many people like to hear the words &#34;Brett Farve&#34; in any sentence. I think he should have left gracefully instead of trying to get back at the pack.

Jets gave him an opportunity to hang it up and retire as a Packer. He is letting a lot of people down and losing respect.

Packer&#39;s 3rd string QB should wear #4!

I think it&#39;s great!! he&#39;s allways been great for throwing the ball to the other team !

jroz
08-18-2009, 07:11 PM
This is exactly what the Vikings needed: a veteran QB to throw play action passes, screens, and a few accurate deep balls, to complement the most devastating RB in the game. It will still be a ball control, running first team. But Rosenfels and Jackson scared no opposing defenses, and a little mystique and leftover talent will help immensely. If Favre throws more than 25 times a game, the game plan wasn&#39;t right from the outset. When the Broncos went to the Super Bowl back to back in the late 90&#39;s, Elway threw for 2200 yards, but threw 22 touchdowns. He doesn&#39;t need to carry this team, but the QB can&#39;t hinder the team, like we have seen from the Tarvaris Jackson era.

slimcake
08-18-2009, 07:21 PM
Right on Jroz. I feel the same way. I still have my f farve shirt though. It is tough to fight back all the hatred for a cheese head... I know now that he is after his old team which should mean he will try hard to succeed. I just can&#39;t wait to see AP running the ball without the d line stacked because we had 0 throwing threat. Can&#39;t wait for this season.

08-18-2009, 07:29 PM
I am a Packer fan first, Favre fan second. My take on the whole thing is this. Does he want to &#34;get back&#34; at the Packers? Probably. But I see it as a man who truly loves playing the game, and is having a hard time accepting the fact that he is getting too old for the game, and is trying to keep it going as long as possible.

I know the day is coming when I look at my sled, and realize I am too old to go boondocking, and I have to trail ride again. That day is going to suck, but, I am going to keep it going as long as physically possible! LOL.

08-18-2009, 08:30 PM
I did like when he said it&#39;s his legacy and nobody elses. If anyone doesn&#39;t like it - don&#39;t watch.

Imo Because the Pack was done with him doesn&#39;t mean he had it end there. Really don&#39;t understand the cheesehead anger.

Just glad I haven&#39;t sold any of my tickets yet !!!

Vikings will remain one of the biggest jokes of the NFL until they fire coach kick <font color="ff0000">•</font><font color="ff0000">•</font><font color="ff0000">•</font>. Brent will take care of that unfortunately this yr like he did the Jets coach last yr. Vikings are paper champs every yr.. Favre will be lucky to make it to the Nov 1st game at Lambeau. The Ole Man was sacked 30 times last yr and the Jets had a good running game. The Williams Sisters might be able to skate the MN system but soon enough they will get their 4 game suspension.. Hold the Super Bowl Parade Plans if possible, Rubes.

08-19-2009, 11:16 AM
Too many sacks and interceptions-----the Jets front line couldn&#39;t give him protection----but when Brett heard the William bros are healthy and back, he no doubt said to himself &#34;close to a 700# wall,maybe I&#39;ll have the chance to get the plays off&#34;-----he loves the sport--nobody can say he doesn&#39;t. Go Vikes

So let me get this straight...the vikqueen&#39;s are placing all their eggs in the basket of a 40 year old, who refuses to go to training camp, had surgery on his throwing arm, faded at the end of last year &amp; will cause a media frenzy, all the while Brad Childress is their coach?? Too Funny! I&#39;ll stick with the 25 year old up and comer in A. Rodgers!

But will Farv fade out like Tarkingtun? They are both old and weathered. But I guess I would play for a 12 mill dollar 1 yr contract. You could buy on kick but fishing boat with that kaching.

Turns out that Brett Favre has something in common with his fans. My opinions are wasted on all of them. So let&#39;s hear from the man himself, the World According to Favre:
March 2, 2001, after signing a contract that made him the NFL&#39;s first $100 million player: &#34;I do want to be a Packer for life ... I couldn&#39;t envision myself playing with another team ... If that was to ever come up, I would probably just retire.&#34;
November The world according to Favre
7, 2003: &#34;I don&#39;t know if it&#39;s going to be this year, next year. I mean, I still think there&#39;s a lot left out there for us and a lot left out there for me.&#34;
March 31, 2006, Biloxi Sun-Herald: &#34;If I do play this year, it will be my last. There&#39;s no doubt about that.&#34;
May 6, 2006: &#34;I know I said that. But I hope you guys will respect me. I&#39;m going to play this year, give it my best and not talk about it.&#34;
September 6, 2006, in response to a question by Bob Costas, he says he&#39;s &#34;99.9 percent&#34; sure <font color="ff0000">•</font><font color="ff0000">•</font><font color="ff0000">•</font><font color="ff0000">•</font><font color="ff0000">•</font> retire as a Green Bay Packer.
December 31, 2006, interviewed by NBC&#39;s Andrea Kremer after Green Bay&#39;s 26-7 win over the Bears at Soldier Field: &#34;If today is my last game, I want to remember it. It&#39;s tough ... tough. I&#39;ll miss these guys, and I&#39;ll miss the game ...&#34;
February 3, 2007, quoted by Packers GM Ted Thompson in the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel: &#34;I think I&#39;ll go one more time.&#34;
May 14, 2007: &#34;... I don&#39;t want to be traded. I want to finish my career as a Packer.&#34;
January 10, 2008, in the Biloxi Sun-Herald, three days before a playoff game against Seattle: &#34;For the first time in three years, I haven&#39;t thought this could be my last game. I would like to continue longer.&#34;
January 21, 2008: &#34;I&#39;m not going to rush to make a big decision, but it will probably be quicker than it&#39;s been in the past.&#34;
March 6, 2008: &#34;It&#39;s been a great career for me, but it&#39;s over ... I don&#39;t think I&#39;ve got anything left to give.&#34;
April 3, 2008, asked about Favre coming back, his agent, Bus Cook, tells the Los Angeles Times&#39; Sam Farmer: &#34;That&#39;s news to me. I don&#39;t think that has anything to do with anything. He&#39;s retired, period, point blank.&#34;
April 10, 2008, Biloxi Sun-Herald: &#34;I very well could be enticed.&#34;
April 25, 2008, before a luncheon honoring his image on the cover of Madden &#39;09: &#34;First of all, I&#39;m not going to keep myself in shape ... There were always second thoughts <font color="ff0000">•</font><font color="ff0000">•</font><font color="ff0000">•</font><font color="ff0000">•</font><font color="ff0000">•</font><font color="ff0000">•</font> wasn&#39;t ever a clear-cut decision.&#34;
July 14, 2008, interviewed by Fox&#39;s Greta Van Susteren, Favre says he was &#34;never fully committed&#34; to retiring: &#34;If I play, it&#39;s going to be 100 percent commitment.&#34;
August 8, 2008: &#34;I&#39;m here for one reason ... I&#39;m here to help the Jets win.&#34;
February 12, 2009: &#34;It&#39;s been a wonderful career, I couldn&#39;t ask for anything more. It was worth a shot for me to go to New York. I wish I could&#39;ve played better down the stretch. I didn&#39;t.
&#34;It&#39;s time to leave.&#34;
June 15, 2009, asked by Joe Buck about the Vikings &#40;after his wife had made a deposit on a condo in Minnesota&#41;<font color="ff0000">•</font><font color="ff0000">•</font><font color="ff0000">•</font><font color="ff0000">•</font><font color="ff0000">•</font> makes a lot of sense because the pieces are in place.&#34;
July 29, 2009: &#34;I didn&#39;t feel like physically I could play at a level that was acceptable. I would like to thank everyone, including the Packers, Jets and Vikings, but, most importantly, the fans.&#34;
August 18, 2009, asked about wearing a Vikings helmet: &#34;It was different. I&#39;m not going to lie to you.&#34;

08-19-2009, 03:11 PM
I just dont understand why all the packer fans feel betrayed? Do you really think Brett Farve honestly gives a crap about the packers? or greenbay or the people of Wi. Absolulty not! and nor should he! He doesnt owe WI a thing and at the end of the day this is a business like anything else. Sure Im loyal to any company that has me on the payroll but guess what? Once out of contract im loyal to the next one that needs my services. People of green bay and most of WI seem to think that Brett farve should just quit, move to a cabin somwhere in Wi and curl up an die and be burried with one of those cheese hats and just ignore the fact that he could make another 12 million for one more season. I do think it will be funny if it turns out to be a huge mistake and he just tanks, but who the heck cares. His choice &#40;i bet you would make a bigger <font color="ff0000">•</font><font color="ff0000">•</font><font color="ff0000">•</font> of yourself for half that kind of money&#41; The press conference yesterday pretty much summed it up when he said, dont watch if you dont like it, and my legacy is my legacy. Translation- &#34;i dont really give a crap what you people think, Im better than the QB&#39;s minnesota has and im gonna see if I can help this team out, have a little fun playin some ball. all the while putiin a little coin in my familys pocket. Does he need any more money, NO. Can a person ever have to much? NO Im sure when I retire at 39 i might have second thoughts also.

At least there is a reason to watch the vikes now.

08-19-2009, 03:19 PM
Olsmann.

I think they did this to keep up the attendance. No black-outs look much better while you push for a new stadium. No?

So maybe 12 mil is a good investment for a yes vote on the stadium deal.

People where going ape crazy thinking that this year we would have all these non-televised blackouts.

olsmann
08-19-2009, 03:42 PM
kevsip, I heard TPAW &#40;governor&#41; say on tv last night that this does change the stadium situation. &#40;so he is clearly not gonna buy into all the farve hype. But farve does create kind of an economic wave to the state just by being here. Its great for downtown and the bars on game day thats for sure

kevisip
08-19-2009, 03:56 PM
Ols, TPAW has not quite fell into his Progressive Transition yet. But I am sure the next Gov will. This could get VERY interesting here in the T.C. in the next 2 years.

There could be a stadium at our expence.

But yes, I believe Brent Farv will bring more eco-bucks here, no doubt.

We are even watching the attendance at the parking ramps here in T.C.

xcr440
08-19-2009, 03:59 PM
Butt Fart could give a crap about anyone&#39;s opinion but his own. Good for him.

I for one don&#39;t think he will make any better QB at this point in his career than Sage would have this year. &#40;No, TJoke was not going to do it&#41;.

With that said, I&#39;m still a Viking fan, and I hope I&#39;m wrong and the TEAM can go to the promise land, but I just don&#39;t see Butt Fart making the season without getting INJURED.

GREEN BAY, Wis. – Maybe Brett Favre&#40;notes&#41; lost the keenest segment of the Green Bay Packers fan base long ago. Maybe he lost them when every summer began to orbit around him, and every roster decision was applauded or disparaged based on how it impacted No. 4. Maybe he lost them in one tumultuous offseason after another, when his emotional whims became reason enough to hold the franchise hostage.


Or maybe he really, truly lost them on Tuesday, when he signed with the hated Minnesota Vikings, and then in Favre fashion, said “If you’re a true Packer fan, you understand.”


That was the line that still had fans fuming as they filed out of Stadium View Sports Bar in Green Bay, aptly named for its view of Lambeau Field down Armed Forces Drive. Some fans that had flocked for the Packers’ evening practice on Tuesday piled into the bar to watch Favre’s news conference. And ultimately they had a resounding opinion as they filed back out: Favre’s iconic legacy in this city has hit a new low.

Brett Favre landing with the Minnesota Vikings this week was fodder for David Letterman&#39;s most recent Top 10 list.

The host of CBS-TV&#39;s &#34;Late Show&#34; had sport with Favre with his list Wednesday night and seemed to display some local knowledge with a couple of the reasons &#40;see Nos. 6 and 2&#41;.

Now, with that signature drum roll, here are the &#34;Top 10 reasons Brett Favre came out of retirement&#34;:

10 - Blew his savings on a two-day taco binge.

9 - No reason to stay home every day now that &#34;Guiding Light&#34; has been canceled.

8 - Worried Obama&#39;s death panels might try to take him out.

7 - In this economy, someone offers you a job, you grab it.

You cheese heads threw him out so he is free to play where ever he is wanted. Get over it and cheer for Mr. Rogers and see if he can win a game in the final minutes.

This could be a fun season since T-jack is not in the mix anymore.

I cant believe the Vikings fans think Favre is bringing you to the promised land. See how that frayed ol&#39; rotator cuff is doing about 6 games into the season!

Whether or not the Vikings get a championship with Favre on the team is pointless. This is purely and solely a business transaction for the Wilf&#39;s. Look at the money they will make off of this deal. The media is going wild, tickets are selling like hotcakes, and I gauruntee most everyone that is a fan of the NFL is going to watch at least one of his games this year. I am not a fan of Favre, but thanks Brett for bringing all this money to our state. Mn is going to make big bucks off of him!

MAJ16, your absolutely right. Hopefully if he is as successfull bringing in money, media, and tickets, then I say after a stint with the Vikings he should run for Governor of MN after his 1 yr contract is up. Our state could really go &#34;GREEN&#34;.

That is the obvious. Nothing in professional sports is NOT a business transaction.

With that said, winning will bring in more than any one person signing, even BF. People seem think he is the one thing we need. If they don&#39;t win this year, those 3000 season tickets sold the first day DO NOT get renewed for next year. Guess we&#39;ll see if that translates in the next 5 months if this was a one year business deal, or a real push to WIN.

I&#39;m a Bear fan living in Wisconsin...have always liked Brett Farve though...but you know what I like even more...hearing all the Wisconsinites whining about Brett Farve.

Over the years since I&#39;ve lived here, I&#39;ve never seen fans turn on players, coaches or a team as quickly as they do in WI.

As a Packer fan I can honestly say yesterday was bitter sweet. Happy for 4 but hate the vikequeen&#39;s. I do get a kick out of how the vikequeen fans are now cheering for # 4.

See this is the problem with Favre, once again he took the spotlight away from someone who deserves it more than him. It was a better catch than it was a throw. Anyone can hurl the ball like that.Just because it came out of Bret&#39;s hand it was the greatest throw ever!!Not one of you viking fans have even metioned how awesome of a catch it was!!! Keep Favre good luck with him finishing the season!!

olsmann
09-28-2009, 02:33 PM
tdq600, Not anyone&#40;at least any qb we&#39;ve had&#41; could have managed the last 60 seconds of the game and stay calm like farve did. Not anyone could have made that throw. Im not sure which media outlets you are watchin but I think lewis is gettin serious praise for the awesome catch. Even farve himself said the throw was nothing special but the catch was. When you go so long as a fan watching QB&#39;s that cant throw anything but an interception in the last 2 minutes of a game we get kind of excited when for once they DONT actually blow it at the end. It was an awesome catch do doubt! but imo the end of that game would have been much different if TJack would have been at the helm.

I am a life long Packer fan, but I just cant get over the favre packer saga. I dont care what everybody says about favre not making his mind up about what he is or was gonna do, I think the pack forced him out cuz Rodgers would have went elsewhere in 2010. I am really happy for brett right now being 3-0, and I will be even happier when he beats Ted and Mike next Monday night and on Nov.1st when he beats them again. Then it will be bye bye for the Ted and Mike show at the end of the season!

Actually, the Vikings were NFL champions in 1969. &#40;lost to KC in the SuperBowl&#41; At that time the AFL was a different league so the Vikings were considered NFL champions for what it is worth.

olsmann, I do not follow the vikings so I dont know about your past Qb&#39;s. I wasnt referring to any particular media outlet, I was referring to this post. Your right I should have been more specific, any &#34;decent&#34; Qb could have made that throw.
2000sxr700 How can you call yourself a life long Packer fan when you want your team to lose because of 1 person?? It sounds to me like you are a Brett Favre fan NOT a GreenBay Packer fan!!! I dont care for Ted or Mike either but I still want the Pack to win!!

2000sxr700
09-29-2009, 11:55 AM
tdq600, I truly am a Packer fan and a brett fan! I am ticked about how that whole thing went down. Regardless of all the things favre has said about retiring and coming back,Dont you think the main office was putting the squeeze on him to retire cuz of rodgers and the packers future. All I know is there is always two sides to a story and it is not all favres fault. The man loves to play and the pack should have let him come back. And now I cant wait for him to not to beat the pack, but to beat Ted and Mike.It will all come out in the wash long after he retires!

Farve made a comment in the interview yesterday....

He didn&#39;t think his pass was all that special. But the catch was something.

I&#39;m bringing boxes of tissues to the game for the Packer fans on Monday.

<font color="0000ff">I LOVE this thread. It is better than the comics! Gotta love the football fan. That REALLY is what it is all about, isn&#39;t it?</font>

<font color="0000ff">Since everyone is nailing everyone else to the wall, I may as well throw my unwanted 2 cents worth into the sink, . . . . .</font>

<font color="0000ff">I LOVE football. Pee-Wee, Middle School, Junior High, High School, College, Semi-Pro, Pro, . . . . . Awesome TEAM sport. But just like anything else, It has it&#39;s Politics. From &#34;Hey Coach, You azzwipe!, Why don&#39;t you play MY kid, all the way to It&#39;s the General Managers fault.</font>

<font color="0000ff">I am a Packers Fan. I am also a NFC NORTH Fan. If the Pack don&#39;t make the play-offs, I root for the &#34;other&#34; team that made it from the Division. No Big Deal. It&#39;s exciting, and the Cold Beer and munchies go down just as good.</font>

<font color="0000ff">It&#39;s ENTERTAINMENT.</font>

<font color="0000ff">I &#34;stayed&#34; after a game one Monday Night, when the Packers got Blown Out by the Titans. They were NEVER in the game. Totally bit. I went down and saw all the Ridiculous fans dressed head to-toe in everything from cheesehead hats, earings, painted faces, pajama&#39;s ect. They were waiting for the players to come out in their cars, to go home. You would swear some of the fans would sacrifice their own children for some of these dudes. And when they left, They couldn&#39;t have cared Less, about the idots shouting &#34;I LOVE YOU&#34;, ect., . . . . UGH!</font>

<font color="0000ff">To each his own. Remember who the Back-up to Brett Favre was when they beat the Patriots in the Super Bowl? Yep, . . . . The &#34;once hated&#34; Jim McMahon. Won a ring with the Bears, AND the Packers. &#40;Small World&#41;. </font>

<font color="0000ff">When I &#34;used&#34; to have a job &#40;and good money&#41; I was able to see A LOT of pro football games. Living in Florida, and also on the East Coast. Fans are pretty much the same everywhere. Good and Bad.</font>

<font color="0000ff">Hey, It&#39;s like snowmobiling. You see people get all bent out of shape, Just because the name brand of the sled someone else rides. Hey, we&#39;re all in it for the sport, right?</font>

<font color="0000ff">My take: I would like to Thank Ron Wolf, for taking the chance on someone he thought was great raw talent. Jerry Glanville thought Favre was a free-wheeling, wild, Redneck. So he comes to Green Bay, and Mike Holmgren MOLDS him. By seeing the talent he had, Holmgren was like a Dad to him, and had to have a TON of patience to put up with his &#34;gunslinging&#34; way he went about playing. But Thru the Good and the Bad, Packers Fans WORLDWIDE, and True football fans everywhere HAD to appreciate what he brought to the table. &#40;good or bad&#41;.</font>

<font color="0000ff">Now, as time went on. So does change. Brett had Mike SHERMAN by the Knads. Sherman Let Favre Run the show. That is just ONE of the reasons Sherman was Axed. Hey, Ron Wolf RETIRED, Mike Holmgren LEFT, It is A BUSINESS. I watched as Favre Held the Packers holding their breath for YEARS, waddling on &#34;could this be the last year or NOT&#34; ? So, after the Last 3 years, They HAD to Make a move. YES, it went down crappy. And YES, of course they had to keep Rodgers from leaving. Heck, It was there future. Why didn&#39;t Brett just say: &#34;Hey, As long as I can play, I will&#34;. Nope. Waddling, and drama.</font>

<font color="0000ff">ENOUGH! It is a business. I am glad he looks like he still has the fire. But I want the Packers to WIN. I find it very ironic Vikings fans, that so many of YOU HATED Favre, and now he may be your SAVIOR. Small, Small world.</font>

<font color="0000ff">For any fan to blame Thompson and McCarthy, Get a LIFE. The Packers are the YOUNGEST team in the league, and are VERY competitive. If all the Vikings needed was Brett to actually give them a CHANCE to FINALLY get a ring, so be it. Just remember though, this is ONLY going to be the 4th game of the year. It is a L O N G year! and also don&#39;t forget &#40;the youngest NFL team&#41; was 13-3 just a couple years back, when I saw #4 yell out &#34;Blue 42! Blu 42! HUT HUT!&#34; on second down, on HIS audible, Roll out to the Right on Second down, and throw it RIGHT to the defender. That still hurts.</font>

<font color="0000ff">So, I suppose I will get bashed also, but as Chris Berman say&#39;s &#34;C&#39;mon Man!&#34; To all my Detroit, Chicago, and yes Minnesota FRIENDS, I hope your teams give you moments to make you proud. May the best &#34;Business&#34; win!</font>

<font color="ff0000">oh ya, wait until the salary cap situation goes un-resolved, and there will be a year with NO football in the not-to-distant future, Then we can argue &#39;bout something else.</font>

<font color="0000ff">Put a fork in me, I&#39;m Outta Here!</font>
