Rodgers, Packers block the way


Brett Favre can lead the Vikings to the Super Bowl but Aaron Rodgers will be in his way. Therefore, it will be the wrong decision for Brett Favre to return for "one more year".

Last year was the best all around statistical season of his career. The chances of that happening again are very low. We all love Favre for his gunslinger mentality but it's that same mentality that caused him to throw 22 touchdowns and 22 picks as a Jet in 2008, and the same mentality that caused him to throw game changing interceptions in the final minutes of his last two NFC championship games.

The first seven games on the Vikings' schedule are against the Saints, Dolphins, Lions, Jets, Cowboys, Packers, and Patriots. Only the Lions game is a true "gimmie" game. Farve plays big in big games, in large part because he takes big chances. But Favre's reputation for being a gunslinger is going to bite him and his team at a crucial point this season, most likely in the playoffs. Let's just pray for his sake it isn't against the Packers, because Aaron Rodgers is one year better this year and will be a top-five QB this year.

Yes, Favre gives the Vikings a better chance to win than Tarvaris Jackson. So the Vikes are looking at an 11-5 season compared to a 9-7 year, but it's a no go on the Super Bowl.
