According to the New York Daily News, one NFL source insists free agent Brett Favre "can't peacefully retire until he finds a way to get revenge on the Packers."

"Favre can't stand Green Bay," the source said. "He wants to play Green Bay and say, 'I told you so.' His bitterness is creating this. I think he's calling Minnesota. I think Minnesota is talking about this as we speak. You haven't heard the end of Favre. No way. He is bionic. As long as somebody will let him in, he will play." May. 3 - 12:20 pm et

So he wants revenge on a team that gave him his second chance and made him what he was? Nice guy. Don't forget he retired, they brought up Rogers and then he wanted back. It's all on him.

I don't think it's the Packers that Favre has a beef with...it's Thompson who he really can't stand. I agree though Sandmann, had he just stayed retired the 1st time this would have never happened.

...how many pages was the Cutler thread, and how many days before training camp? grin .

Heres my .02; do any of you really believe deep down that Sage, or T-Jack are the answer to pushing this team to where it hasnt been since the 70's? Every team needs a quality qb to win deep in playoffs...your not playing weak teams come 19th/20th week of the season. If your happy with 10-6 again with Peterson getting overused then you should be happy with our QB position as it stands.

If Farve gets his arm rehabilitated/fixed why not take a shot with #4; whats it gonna hurt... unless your happy with the Vikes just making the playoffs. Somehow I just cant picture Sage and/or T-Jack giving interviews as one of the starting QB's on media day @ the Superbowl.....can you?

Sage and T-Junk are not the answers, I agree with that. But a used up Favre is not the answer yesterday. How far did the Jets get in the playoffs last year?

To all you Vikings fans and Favre haters:

If he went to the Vikings and they won the Super Bowl would you stop hating on the guy and like him or would you still be a hater???

I think somehow I am grouped in that category, so I will give my .02!

"IF" is huge in your question. Favre is not the answer, but if he did come here, and took the Viking's to a 16-0 season, then won the super bowl, I still wouldn't like him. I would cheer for the Viking's the whole way, but my "hatred" for Favre would still be there.

I have never hated Favre. Just the team he played for. I think the chances of him coming here are getting better and better every day. We all know its not a long term thing, but its a short term route for a possible Superbowl run. Give the guy a chance, he certainly can't make the QB position on our team any worse.

I never said anything about still hating the Packers!!lol I think most of you band wagon Vikings fans will jump on the Favre band wagon if he was to go to MN!! He is just too fun to watch!!

If that was the case, I wonder how fun the Jets think he was to watch? If he was that fun, I wonder why the Packers or the Jets didn't jump on resigning him when he decided he wanted to play again? Because I am sure he is just as good as he was 10 years ago right?

Extremely fun 4Wand. He carried them "jets" on his back from a 4 win season to a 9-5 record and 1st place in the toughest division in football along with being selected to the Pro Bowl. Not Favre's fault they made him throw 40 times a game and ruined his arm.

When he signs with us later in the year he'll only have to throw 20 times a game and that will work out perfect for us Viking Fans.

We get it already...DOH! and you're kidding yourself if you don't think Favre has a been good for the last ten years.

I am not blind, nor completely ignorant, I know Favre has a huge possible upside if we sign him, and I know he is probably better then what we had recently or maybe even have now. I just don't think he has another good year in him. I think his body is giving out, and he just cant realize it, kind of like Jerry Rice! He had a great career, but its over. He isn't going to accomplish anything else by playing another year.

I don't think it is in the Viking's best interest to put off our search for a good long term QB. I realize T-Jack and Sage is not the answer there, but if we bring King Drama in for a year, he will just prolong our search. Let the two below average QB's fail this year, then maybe the front office will wake up and figure out the importance of having a good long term leader at the QB position.

If they do bring in Favre, I only hope I will be eating crow, and he will prove me wrong and lead the Vikes to the super bowl.

Honestly, I don't think I dislike Favre because of the packers, though that didn't help. Madden really ruined him for me. I have my own man-crush on Sage. laugh

Hate to say it but the search for a long term qb is over for the year! Its not like the Vikes are going to sign Farve to a 4 year contract either. and when they do find a long term qb, what a great veteran QB to learn from. We got what we got and thats T-jack and Sage! I know alot of you hate to admit but Farve is the best option we have.

What will happen is, we will sign Favre for a year, he wont teach our 2 present Qb's anything, then next year we will have to give Sage, and/or T-Jack another shot, before we actually find a replacement QB. Then we are a minimum of 3 years from now getting a good QB, at that point, all of our veteran players are beyond their prime, our good players we have now will want new extremely high contracts, and we wont resign them. We will then have to start over and rebuild.

That sounds more reasonable 4wand and makes good sense, more so than some of your previous Favre Rants!.... grin

ESPN's Trent Dilfer said on NFL Live Monday that he recently spoke to free agent Brett Favre and believes there's "very little teeth" to rumors of Favre's return.

Dilfer got a "resounding no" when he asked if Favre is truly interested in playing for the Vikings, adding that Favre sounds "very comfortable" being retired. That doesn't mean he won't change his mind as training camp draws near.

Vikings have ok QBs now but they just dont have anything in between their ears!! Just like the head coach!! The difference between the Vikings with number 4 and without number 4 is amazing if you ask me. They wont do anything without a QB that is reliable!! And Favre can be that guy for a year or maybe 2! Im gonna go out on a limb here and say there is a 75 percent chance he will be with the Vikes!!

Farve is not only a reasonable solution but he is the best solution for Minnesota to go deep in the playoffs this season.

Oh yes this would be an excellent time for someone to insert a Mora "playoff" rant.

Brian if you like him so much and think he is that good, you should be trying to convince the Packers in getting him back, not trying to get your teams opponents to sign him. Or is that why you want the Vikes to sign him, because you know he is washed up, and if we sign him we will be worse off! I respect that grin

I love it when an average joe calls out a veteran NFL player and calls him washed up. Unreal.

      The approaching fishing season comes with a reminder from the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources to always follow state laws to prevent the spread of aquatic invasive species. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Here's the current survey report from the DNR. 2020 Lake Vermilion Lake Survey Report.pdf 2020 Discussion Appendix A.pdf

      Funny guy🙂. Got skunked again 🙂 tonight. Might need to try your idea. Lots of boats heading to Black Bay this evening. Saw the new barge service heading that way. Wonder how long before the local barge service will be down here?
    • SkunkedAgain
      I hear that to catch suspended crappies, it is best for the fisherman to be suspended as well. I suggest crawling out to the end of yours!
    • SkunkedAgain
      True - although the DNR tries to make us all feel better by saying that the number of fry that survive is higher due to their re-introduction back into Vermilion. In theory that means that we will not have as good of a 2020 walleye class, but as we know there are so many other factors that go into it.   As you said, it's an experiment - a very uncontrolled experiment
    • CigarGuy
      My dock is still up in the air🙂
    • leech~~
      Maybe you have to switch to your dock? 😄
    • CigarGuy
      Been fishing the neighbors dock in Partridge River the last 3 evenings and have only caught 2 crappies. Don't have the boat in the water yet.
    • JerkinLips
      Since most of the hatchery fry are sent to other lakes, the skipped year shouldn't have too much of an effect on the Vermilion population.  From the numbers I recall, the fry put back into Vermilion from the hatchery is slightly higher than their PREDICTED natural hatch would be (which all stay in Vermilion).  Will be interesting to see what the results of this "experiment" will be.  Maybe they will have to increase the percentage of hatchery fry going back into Vermilion to match the actual natural hatch (which may be better than they estimate).
    • BigVTim
      I'm headed up this weekend to dust off the camper. Is it worth bringing the boat for Crappies? Any one heard any reports? I'm assuming they are still deep but maybe with the early ice out they are already up in black bay. Cheers! I'll be nice just to smell the cold north air again.
