No Favre For You, Purple Jesus
OK, folks. You can put the nooses, the knives and the guns away: Brett Favre is staying retired — well, he isn’t going to the Minnesota Vikings. Not now, anyway. Maybe after the mini-camps are and his bicep is repaired. This means, for the time being, Big Daddy Drew can cancel his personal/national emergency. The news also means the Vikings, with perhaps the most talented player in the league in Adrian Peterson, will probably have to rely on Tarvaris Jackson or the newly acquired Sage Rosenfels when opposing defenses are stopping Peterson from running wild.
What, no Gus Frerotte?
Released and staying-retired quarterbacks aside, I’m still confused why the Vikings front office didn’t pursue the stud-man-walking, otherwise known as Jeff Garcia; especially now that their Favre overture has been rebuffed. Who knows? Maybe the Rosenfels/Jackson two-headed monster can bring a passing identity to a team looking to provide their savior with some much-needed support.
