...and the Vikings just started waterboarding their fans

Reports are rampant that Mr. Wrangler Jeans is going to sign with the Vikings today Brett Favre is a Minnesota Viking... Given that I think he's a dried-up overrated primadonna who is going to lead Minnesota to absolute desolation and ruin this season, let me be the first to say:


I can't wait for the first game the Vikings lose 20-17 to a division rival, where the D is solid, Purple Jesus runs for 200 yards, but The Land Baron sprays 3 picks, including one returned for the deciding touchdown... I will laugh an evil laugh.

Seriously, what can the Vikings do if he, you know, sucks? He's been so overhyped as the savior of all things purple, how do you bench him if he's playing like it's 2005? How do you control a divided locker room if HE is the reason Minnesota is losing games?

I still half-expect the Vikes to win the NFC North, but a deep playoff run isn't going to happen with one of the worst post-season QBs of the last decade under center... and if you're a Vikings fan, anything less than a trip to XLIV makes the Favre signing a complete and total catastrophe.

Just imagine if Bill Cowher was being introduced as Seattle's new coach, or that our new free agent signings were any combination of Joey Porter, Ben Roethlisberger, Hines Ward and/or Troy Polamalu. Are there flames on the side of your face? THAT'S how much Vikings fans despise Favre. Minnesota can win the North and lose in the first round with Jackson or Rosenfels... If you do that with Brittfar, you don't get any value added, and you've been forced to root for a guy you HATE for an entire season.

Congrats, Vikings Nation! You're screwwwwed.

Once they put on a blue uniform and win games for us, they are automatically rehabilitated. It's a miracle!!

Love the Vikings for this - any idea on the new over/under for number of interceptions this year?

One less threat in the NFC to deal with. Their complete unwillingness to stick with their young quarterbacks is going to kill the chemistry of that team. If I'm a Vikings fan, I'm thinking its an utter tragedy that they are doing the exact opposite of what they should be doing, they are bringing in a turnover prone qb to run a ball control offense? What? Does this make sense? What a screwy organization, AP is going to pull a Barry Sanderson in a few years.
