|Favre wondering how many times you'll fall for the ol' retirement trick.|
I wanna start with a special thanks going Patrick Willis’ way.
- Love the backup QB play from both teams. Joe Webb of the Vikings is physically gifted and very raw for the NFL now, but if the 49’s didn’t get stellar play from their soon-to-be clipboard holder, Nate Davis, we could just as easily be talking about the prospects for the Vikings, who could end up dropping Sage Rosenfels and sticking with Webb-excuse the pun- and Tarvaris Jackson. That move would give them two dual threat QB’s to one pro style-Brett Favre. Very interesting to look forward to in watching these last few preseason games.
- Former Stanford Cardinal Toby Gerhart could make a comfortable place for himself on this Viking squad if they can keep getting that kind of production out of him on screen passes and inside runs. He is heavier so his running style will feature even less lateral movement-not a negative-than we’ve seen from him in the pass, and with continued development blocking out of the shotgun formation could be called on early if Peterson is not overly effective running the ball and continues to show his major deficiencies involving fumbles and picking up blitzes with success.
- The entire game was bloated with Favre talk to the point of the entire first half previewing and teasing the Al Michaels halftime interview, at halftime the interview was finally played-BOOOOO!!!!- and finishing up by breaking down Favre’s answers for the entire second half. That’s just the way the broadcasts work these days, I guess I’m going to have to shut up and keep watching.
- Prep Thoughts: Hopefully Williston-Elko has replaced the Kool-Aid with Gatorade in their coolers or what a shame this season would be with all that firepower and talent. If I were a betting man I’d say head coach Dwayne Garrick has handled this with his team already.
