On a related note, I don't know that Favre makes Minnesota a better team. That team is so strong at both lines of scrimmage, and clearly has one of the better young running backs in the league (not to mention Chester Taylor too), I don't think a gunslinger is going to make that team better. If anything, they could implode under such recklessness. Not to take anything away from Favre and his skills, but that's a big assumption to make that Favre will take a team built the way the Vikings are and make them better. I mean Favre showed for the most part last year the ability to restrain himself, but the NFC Championship game exposed Favre for the type of QB he is and wants to be. And it's not necessarily one that will take the Vikings to the next level.
He makes them better IMO simply cause you're not going to see 8 man fronts. AP will have more running room. I don't think any NFL defense respects T. Jackson.

Re: Brett Favre Reinstated by NFL

Looks as though Favre's time is up in GB. Tampa appears to be the front runner, at least now....and with Gruden's man love for QB's this 'could' happen fairly quick?

After hours of meetings with Favre, McCarthy appears ready to move on

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Brett Favre left Lambeau Field just before Green Bay practiced Tuesday afternoon, and coach Mike McCarthy said at a news conference that the three-time MVP isn't in the "proper mindset" to be part of the Packers.

McCarthy, speaking to reporters about the standoff over Favre's retirement after practice, said he and Favre had "a ton of conversations" over the last couple of days about the quarterback's desire to come back and play in the NFL, but McCarthy was not convinced that Favre wants to be part of the Packers.

"I have to keep the train moving," McCarthy said.

McCarthy said that when he asked Favre whether he was committed to playing for Green Bay, "that's not where he was."

Favre seemed resigned to this as well.

"We're at a stalemate," he said in an interview Tuesday with ESPN's Chris Mortensen. "Mike and I both agreed last night that me being out there is a distraction and will continue to be a distraction. We all know the reason I'm here is because the commissioner [Roger Goodell] reinstated me so we have a lot of things to figure out.

"It's simple and complicated, both at the same time."

Favre is a part of the team's 80-man roster but is officially on the Packers' non-football injury list, which means he could be activated at any time.
"There's no greater feeling than moving a man from Point A to Point B, against his will." #68
