Favre Joins The Vikings. What a Shock.

I hope the Vikings know what they are doing.

Brett Favre officially becomes a member of the Minnesota Vikings today, as he will sign a contract for two years, at $25 million. He was already in camp earlier today in Minnesota taking snaps at QB.

Both Tarvaris Jackson and Sage Rosenfels are nursing injuries, so Favre becomes the number one guy right away. I am not one who was pushing for the Vikings to do this, but now it is done. It has nothing to do with him as a former Green Bay Packer. He looked old and worn down at the end of the 2008 season with the Jets. He had surgery on an ailing rotator cuff back in May and says he's ready to go.

I will reserve judgment on this move. Favre has a lot to prove in my eyes, and beginning this Friday night against the Kansas City Chiefs, he will get that opportunity.

Wow...Being the huge Vikes fan that you are, I wonder if what you are feeling right now would be similar to what you would feel like if Jeter signed with the Red Sox next year?

Interesting analogy, Michael. I'd have to think about that one, long and hard...
