What the Favre? Part 17

The Minneapolis Star Tribune is today reporting that, "Vikings trainer Eric Sugarman was in Hattiesburg, Miss., on Wednesday to check on the physical condition of quarterback Brett Favre, another indication the veteran NFL quarterback is headed for the Vikings."

The article goes on to state that, "A Vikings source who has been in contact with Favre recently reported that the surgery seven weeks ago was a complete success" and that "Unless Favre changes his mind or there is a problem agreeing on a contract, there seems little doubt Favre will be in uniform when Vikings training camp opens in Mankato on July 31."

Apparently, the contract might already be agreed to and while light on guarantees is heavy with incentives.

It used to be -- OK, still is -- that if the Packers won only two games each year it should be versus Da Bearz. Minnesota got added to that list a while ago now. This year, with Ol' #4 still trying to prove a point to Ted Thompson, we have to once again emphasize the latter.

Brett wants the two games with the Pack so bad he can taste it. So bad he went under the knife to repair his arm. So bad that he's willing to do permanent damage to his reputation. So bad that he's willing to wear that funky purple. The Packers need to allow Brett to vent in those games. Because his need for vengeance will make him overreach and overplay. And we all know what happens when that happens. The Packers can darn near put those two games versus the ViQueens in the "W" column right now.

How's that taste, Brett?
