Name a bigger one over the past five years. There aren't any that I can think of.
Would you have been happier if he retired and we had to watch Tavaris Jackson/Sage Rosenfels week in week out? Football is much better with favre in there.
You know what? Maybe if he didn't make the Vikes wait until a week before the regular season to let them know whether or not he was going to grace them with his presence, they could do better than Tavaris Jackson. Does the name Aaron Rogers ring any bells? How about Mark Sanchez? This is what happens when a team decides to "move on". They can draft and train a replacement who is actually halfway decent. Then, he can take over, and you can stop spending your entire off season wondering if you are going to have a QB or not. The sixteen days a year he's on the field, he's a good QB. But the rest of the time, he's actually holding the Vikings hostage with his bs, and they are just either too shortsighted, or afraid of pissing him off to do anything about it.
