Preseason Game 2: Vikings Defeat Chiefs 17-13

Keep Your Eyes On The Prize Tarvaris

Keep Your Eyes On The Prize Tarvaris

Today, we open this update with a song by Three Dog Night, aptly titled Liar.

I won’t ever leave while you want me to stay
Nothing you could do that would turn me away
Hanging on every word
Believing the things I heard
Being a fool
You’ve taken my life, so take my soul
That’s what you said and I believed it all
I want to be with you as long
As you want me to
I won’t move away
Ain’t that what you said?
Ain’t that what you said?
Ain’t that what you said?
Liar, liar, liar

Three weeks ago Brad Childress held a press conference declaring that he and the Vikings had moved past the Brett Favre saga and would now concentrate on the quarterbacks he had in camp now that Favre himself announced that he would remain retired and would not be joining the Vikings.

That was good news for newly signed Sage Rosenfels, who was told by Childress before he signed his contract that he would be given a legitimate opportunity to compete for the starting job against Tarvaris Jackson.

The Grassy Knoll Institute disgustingly replies:

Viking fans. We’ve been hoodwinked, held hostage, and lied to and we should not be happy about it. I fear Brad Childress has done a great grievance to the organization and it’s fans. Perhaps the acquisition of Media Whore Brett Favre will help the Vikings win a super bowl but his actions will no doubt have long lasting effects on the team.

No one likes to be lied to. When free agency rolls around next season, perhaps players will re-evaluate a Viking offer if promised to say, compete for a starting position or the promise to play a certain defensive alignment, or to pass more, or run more, or be the key returned. Sometimes it’s not always about the highest bidder. (See T.J. Whosyourmomma)

The Minnesota Vikings came home Friday night and hosted the Kansas City Chiefs in their second pre-season game which was the beginning of the Favre era. Of course Brett Favre started the game after only having two and half days of practice. Here is a trivia question for you. Who caught the first pass from Brett Favre as a Minnesota Viking? Answer: Percy Harvin, hauled in a 5 yard pass. I remember Randy Moss once stated that he wouldn’t mind having Brett Favre throwing passes to him. Sorry Randy, you are on the wrong team.

BTW, Brett Favre’s first pre-season stint with the Vikings numbers were 1-4 passing for 4 yards. However, if you believed what the announcers were spewing, Brett Favre pitched a perfect game. They talked about how comfortable he looked under center. How he was able to scan the defense. How fluid he was dropping back. Pah…leaseeeee! He looked terrible Friday. If it were Sage, Tarvaris, or JD, the byline would have been, Catch the Next Train Out Of Town.

On a side note: Tarvaris Jackson did pitch a perfect game. He went 12-15 for 202 yards and two TD passes. Sage did not play but Booty mopped up and went 6-8 for 61 yards.

Percy Harvin was on the field Friday. He caught two passes, one in traffic and two kick returns. I have to tell you, on the kick offs, I was holding my breath as I was expecting him to break them for TD’s. Yes, he has that much talent, I just hope he stays on the field long enough to showcase it.

Shoutout to the special teams. Last year the Vikings were horrid on special teams, but if the first two pre-season games are any indication, field position should be vastly improved. Plus, once Harvin gets comfortable in the kick return, the special teams will be one of the best.

I can see that this season is going to be all about the Favre. Perhaps the hoopla will die down a bit as the season progresses, unless of course if the Vikings are doing well (Which I expect) then a media frenzy not seen before would emerge. Hell, even John Madden might come out of retirement to announce a few games.

The Vikings have four quarterbacks on the roster currently. Brett Favre by default makes the team. That leaves Rosenfels, Jackson, and Booty. Rosenfels signed a three year contract with guaranteed money and has practiced and played well in training camp. Jackson got off to a rocky start but played very well in Fridays game. That leaves Booty, who has not gotten significant playing time and when he did, he was relegated to 3rd and 4th team sessions. Booty is the odd man out.

I am glad that I got my rookie football card of #4 J.D. Booty.

    I think the Vikings made a mistake in signing Favre. I put it to you Greg, how many 40 year old quarterbacks actually made it through an entire season starting all 16 games?

      Nice Animal House reference. And quite possibly Favre could destroy the Vikings chances. however, if he can stay healthy, and form a bond quickly with the receivers and offensive line, he could take them to Valhalla.

    Brett is going to be with you for a very long time. He sold his soul to me for 10 more years of playing time with one condition. He would have to retire every year and then recant right before preseason began.
    Nine more years of Brett.
