No way that he makes it through the season without tearing that shoulder. I think theres gonna be a lot of bitter players aiming for it, in the hopes that they end this charade for good. I used to respect Farve because of how he played the game, but he's just become an attention whore over the past couple of seasons, and I've pretty much lost all respect for him.
It's a shame he would do this to his legacy.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the "feeling around the league" is that the Vikings will try to trade Tarvaris Jackson after signing Brett Favre.
Schefter says third QB J.D. Booty is safe, and the prevailing belief is that Jackson is the odd man out. It's worth noting that the NFL Network reported in mid-June that Jackson would request a trade if Favre became a Viking. The Vikings wouldn't get much, though, and Jackson's stock has further plummeted after an atrocious preseason opener and in-camp knee injury.

Oh god, I can just see it now.... Jackson is better than anything we have, trade for him, do it now!!!!
dont you start that, you should edit your psot, so no one else reads it and gets an idea
It's ok, hopefully anyone that starts that crap will be banned...
God, I was hoping to finally watch a football season without Favre.
The Vikings have really screwed themselves over for the future, though. Let's face it: they aren't going anywhere this year. Favre can't hold up, the Williams "brothers" might be facing suspension, and they play in a division that is getting tougher and tougher (Lions notwithstanding). They have given up on a promising young QB, and rather than allowing him to slowly develop, they have mortgaged everything on a single year.
According to Total Access, the Vikes sold 1,500 Favre jerseys and 2,000 season tickets in the first few hours after he signed. At this age, Favre is an over-hyped dinosaur still collecting paychecks for what he accomlished 5-10 years ago, but the man will sell merchandise and bring crowds.
I wouldn't want him here, but its a smart move for the Vikes imo.
