Favre didn't cost the Vikings much, but he only really lasted one season. The second season, not so good, or the more correct word is ugly: Favre threw 11 TDs and 19 INTs. The Vikings offense ranked 28th in passing TDs in 2010, worse than the 49ers (24th).
I'm very leery of trading for old QBs. You don't get bang for the bucks. Even the great Joe Montana only had one good year with the Chiefs.
Yeah and he was 41 years old at that point. His body fell apart.
Peyton Manning will be 36 next season. If he comes to a team and gives 2 or 3 Brett Favre 2009 seasons it's well worth the move. 1 Super Bowl ring justifies any draft pick.
Not that I'm hoping that we bring him in. Way too early to be speculating about that, and Alex is playing just fine. I'm just saying hell f*cking yes I would take him at this stage of his career.
