This was in this mornings Sporting News Today, from former Vikings quarterback Fran Tarkenton, who is my new hero, and who apparently doesn't want Favre to get his old job:
"In this day and time we have glorified the Brett Favres of the world so much, they think it's about them. He goes to New York and bombs. He's 39 years old. How would you like Ray Nitshcke in his last year playing for the Vikings, or I retire and go play for the Packers. I kind of hope it (Favre coming to the Vikings) happens, so he can fail."
