In the lamest twist ending since M. Night Shyamalan’s The Village, Brett Favre has informed the Minnesota Vikings that he will return for one more season. It is a decision that will undoubtedly be celebrated in Minnesota as Vikings fans embrace the euphoria that comes immediately prior to devastating heartache.
Certainly Favre gives the Vikings a better chance to win in 2010. He also has a reputation for throwing interceptions which end seasons. Count with me the times he has thrown a pick to euthanize his team’s playoff chances: Eagles, Giants, and Saints. That’s not even considering the beat downs that the Cowboys of the 90’s put on him.
With Favre, the Vikings are more formidable. The Cowboys will have to beat the Vikings twice in 2010 (once in the regular season and again during the playoffs) if they want to reach the Super Bowl. As fans of the Cowboys, we should be glad the schedule will be as tough as it is. If the Cowboys reach the Super Bowl, they earned it. Going through mediocre teams to get to the Super Bowl isn’t nearly as gratifying.
