    Maybe, maybe not..

    I did hear today that lot of the players are saying Brett is making more and more changes in the huddle and not doing what Bevel and Chilly wants him to do...

    Happened in both of the games vs the Pack and in both Chilly told Bevel to bench Brett.

    Now hearing that their TE ( cant spell his name) came out and said as the season has gone on, Brett is making up his own plays in the huddle..

    Could that be a reason for the ugly performances the last few weeks?

    I do know this...In Gb they had it with him ad-libing all the time ( int in the Giants game was told not to audible out of it and he did to the pass that got int)

    They wanted him to stop doing that and stay true to the "team" concept and he couldnt do it..

    Now he is doing it in Minny, but now its coming out in the public where as in GB they wouldnt bring it up

    So he wasn't benched because that game meant little and he was getting sacked and thrown down constantly? Well, then it's something.

    But what I read is that this was the reason, and that he was discussing because he wanted to be on the field.

    But I didn't look into it much, I don't really care much about Favre or the Vikings anymore, I only care if they're losing or not...

    I want this known before I get labeled a hater

    He had every right to do what he did, as a leader he should WANT to be on the field and not be taken out.

    However he should not air this crap out in the public, he did it with the Jets (injury) and now this..that needs to stay in the private part...

    He should be okay with taken himself out of any game that is out of hand to protect himself...And that is what he wasnt willing to do in the Minny game and the Detroit game

    The answer is it to Start JACKSON in the rest of the regular season and in that one playoff game.

    To me they're just trying to create some controversy because they can't re-schedule the Monday Night game...

    The Vikings know that without Favre they wouldn't have a chance, and while he's winning, they'll shut up and go with him.

    If Minnesota wins that game, they sit 1 game behind New Orleans in the home field advantage race, and Minnesota holds the tiebreaker.

    If home field means anything to you, you don't try to bench your best option to win.

    Does homefield advantage means more than the health of a 40 year old QB, which is the best shot you get of reaching the SB?

    Wow, who is telling the truth?



    Favre isn't to blame for Vikings' recent struggles

    Okay, now this is much deeper.

    It could cause some problems (hopefully) over there.

    But as long as it's working, nothing will happen.

    But if it's not...

    I think this is the part where we all chuckle and say, "Well, that's just Brett being Brett", and walk away. Unless, of course, you're Childress, where you're probably steaming a bit because your talented douchebag QB is making you look like an *** in the press. Yep, the ol' gunslinger don't need no stinkin' coachin'.
