Brett Favre Destroys Green Bay

This was one of the better Monday night football games in recent times. In all fairness to the Green Bay Slackers, they came into this one as the decided underdogs (both tactically and emotionally), and played a good game with some gutsy calls. A redeemed Bernard Berrian, Adrian Peterson, and excellent games from Sidney Rice and Visanthe Shiancoe led the charge. But even without the usual hyperbole and gushing from Mike Tirico and the other ESPN doofuses, it is clear that #4 was truly the General of tonight’s game. Not to mention the usual D from warlords like Antoine Winfield, Jared Allen, and the Williamses. 

The Vikings are a serious contender for the big win this year.

I told you that signing Favre was a good idea.

Green Bay is horribly mediocre. No pass rush, no protection, and no running game. It appears that all of their toughness left on the same bus as Brett Favre.

Could be. But the Vikings are pretty good. Not undeafeted, 16-0 and a Super Bowl win good, but they have great balance. They can run the ball, and if you load the box to stop Adrian Peterson, then Favre can still toss the ball around. He’s had some amazing passes in the first 4 games.

They also have a solid defense, and they seem to have worked on the punting and kicking games.

Their kickoff and punt coverage needs work, but they did a nice job on both onside attempts.

I’m not sold on Randy Childress as an elite coach, but they seem to be moving everything in the right direction.

In my fantasy football league I traded away Adrian Peterson today because I can no longer stand to root for anyone on the same team as “He whose name shall not be spoken”.
