Cris Carter, someone who is not shy about giving his opinion, spoke today on the idea of Favre joining the Vikings.
Carter thinks that the biggest problem with the situation is that Sage and Tarvaris are left waiting. At the present moment, they have to proceed as if they are both competing for the starting job, but in the back of their minds they know there’s a good chance they aren’t.
“The bad thing is, what is the backlash from no communication with the other kids? Because ultimately, you have to tell these kids something,” Carter said. “You’re setting yourself up where they’re going to have a very uncomfortable time, at the first day of camp, because Tarvaris don’t know nothing and Sage don’t know nothing. “That right there will be the hurdle for them to overcome, internally.”
The legendary hall of fame receiver does believe that Favre will be a Viking for sure, though. He said the team isn’t going to waste time and money sending trainers to see him if he’s not going to be an employee.
He also said that Favre will make the Vikings “dangerous”. He commented that Adrian Peterson is the most dominant non-QB player in the league, and how so far the presence of Peterson has demanded that defenses put 8 or 9 guys in the box. He also brought out the point that I’ve been making to people all along…
“With Brett, what kind of cover you going to play against them? He opens it up. And Brett opens up their offense for Brad. Brad will do things that he has never done, because of Brett.“
