There are a lot of good articles being written in InternetLand yesterday and today about Brett Favre, but I wanted to share an interesting article from one of my favorite (if not favorite) blogs to read, Grant’s Tomb. The article talks about how Favre has bought the Vikings a year or maybe two, but that they need to be developing a quarterback for beyond that time.
So it’s on. Brett Favre is going to quarterback the Vikings to a Super Bowl in 2009. Or maybe not.
Which still leaves the Vikings looking for a long-term answer at quarterback in 2010. You know this is true because whether Favre’s 2009 excellent Vikings adventure turns out well or not so well, he’ll retire once the season is over. And then what?
Well, I guess the Vikings could try to get Favre out of retirement again – we know he’ll at least listen. Failing that they’ve still got Sage Rosenfels (how pissed is he after this little charade?) under contract for another two seasons. They could try to draft a hot shot college quarterback in the first round – someone like Sam Bradford or Colt McCoy. Or they can hope some elite or potentially elite quarterback is available next offseason.

Really interesting ideas.
