OK, it’s really happening this time? Brett Favre is actually going to be the Minnesota Vikings quarterback in 2009?

Game on!

I won’t rehash why I think this signing is great for business but “iffy” from a football standpoint. I went through all that when Favre told coach Brad Childress he was staying retired.

Make no mistake. Favre is coming back for one reason and one reason only: to win a Super Bowl. Indeed, many will say that the Favre signing is a failure if there is anything short of a championship. I vehemently disagree. Say the Vikings get all the way to the Super Bowl and lose or they finish 10-6 and lose in the divisional round of the playoffs. Is any Viking fan going to have the temerity to say ”We should have stuck with Sage Rosenfels or Tarvaris Jackson”?

As Vikings fans we need to be intellectually honest. Even if Favre does not lead our favorite squad to the proverbial Promise Land, the possibility doesn’t even exist if Jackson or Rosenfels are at the helm.

I agree. Training camp is over so it’s time for him to play in some games. I’d be PISSED if I am Rosenfels or Jackson.

I hope Favre steps it up this season and does well for his team.
