We give up. So far we've resisted getting baited into the controversy that seems to have already dragged on forever. But our resistance has its limits and we've reached the point where we can hold out no longer.
Since the talk in these parts is pretty much all-Favre all the time these days, we're going to break our boycott and add our two cents to a matter that's garnered attention and interest far beyond reasonable expectations. It is a phenomenon that defies rational explanation and borders on mass delusion. The reaction of many Viking fans is almost a textbook definition of the madness of crowds.
So we offer a voice of sanity calling out in the wilderness of hysteria with a simple message: No Favre, no way, no how. No super star, no Super Bowl, no super-sized expectations. T-Jack is a train wreck and Sage is probably going to end up being the little quarterback that couldn't (I think I can, I think I can...), but I'd rather suffer these tools gladly than see number four wearing purple (shudder). Some things are just not meant to be and this is clearly one of them.
Please stop the madness. And vote in our special Favre poll on the left sidebar.
