Favre "definitely" starting Friday night

A league source tells us that Brett Favre “definitely” will be starting on Friday night against the Chiefs.

Previously, the Vikings had planned to go with Tarvaris Jackson, as part of the rotation that coach Brad Childress was using to determine whether Jackson or Rosenfels will be the starter.

Cris Carter of ESPN initially reported earlier today that Favre will start in the team’s preseason home opener.

Meanwhile, the term “blackout” officially has been removed from all Minnesota dictionaries.

    I hope that streak of his does not extend one more game.

    At least until they play the Packers.

  3. green&bold says: Aug 18, 2009 3:41 PM

    Just visited a Packer’s message board to see the reaction. Its pretty much 50/50. 50% want to see him injured and 50% don’t care if he gets injured or not.
    Not as many supporters as he used to have. I think he’s going to get booed at Lambeau.

  4. Big Stretch says: Aug 18, 2009 3:42 PM

    too bad they are playing the chiefs. maybe one of those scrubs will end the B.S. before the season starts.
    never been a chiefs fan but here’s to hoping someone drops a bomb on one of his knees.
    F U Brett Favre

  5. leucas says: Aug 18, 2009 3:42 PM

    Brett will quit on this team if things don’t go well.

  6. Big ben Rapistburger says: Aug 18, 2009 3:42 PM

    On the bright side, it will allow the Chiefs to get a win, early in the season, to build some confidence.
    Just imagine, last week, the Vikes play a pretty good game against a tough Colts team, pull out a win, and now they are going to bring in Favre, and take 2 steps back wards

    WTF is going on with Farrrvve???? it’s been 10 minutes without an update…..

  8. Florios_a_tool says: Aug 18, 2009 3:43 PM

    “blackout” will be replaced with “lights out”.
    Favre is a marked man, with a very large target on his back.

  9. Silver&Black666 says: Aug 18, 2009 3:43 PM

    This has nothing to do with Chaz Schilens broken foot or Coach Cable punching someone!

  13. CincyJungle says: Aug 18, 2009 3:48 PM

    I’m glad to see Farve play for Minnesota finally, but my concern is that he’s not going to be able handle a 16 game season and possible post season. The Vikings will have to use him as a game manager more than a gun slinger if he’s going to make it through the season. The presumption being he knows the system so well and won’t be replied upon to win games because he has a running game and a stout defense, this means holding the interceptions down as well.

  14. Jonk says: Aug 18, 2009 3:52 PM

    2008 Favre with Jets: 9-7 record, 81.0 rating, 22 TD, 22* INT
    2008 Vikings quarterbacks: 10-6 record, 81.5 rating, 22 TD, 17 INT
    *=NFL leader

  15. ZombieRevolution says: Aug 18, 2009 3:52 PM

    Have you figured out your negative headline for when Favre inevtiably struggles with a team he just joined?
    How about “Lord Favre lays an egg, and not a golden one”

  16. Contra says: Aug 18, 2009 3:53 PM

    Well you definitely dont want Favre to be behind a second string line. Not after the signing he did today. I feel bad for TJack but you know what, although I am divided on the matter, Favre does improve that position and opens up the attack against teams which were primarily a run stopping D. Now AP can have less heat on him when the secondary and linebackers have to respect the pass. Im glad this happened but not glad HOW it happened.

  17. meezle says: Aug 18, 2009 3:54 PM

    What was the hold up was it $?
    I think favre wanted to play and the $ wasn’t right. After the vicks signing and, I guess, a bad game from their qbs maybe the vikes ponied up a little more to get him.
    I find it odd that he signs now
    Thoughts?

  18. hayward giablommi says: Aug 18, 2009 3:55 PM

    (One of) the unfortunate parts of this is that Minnesota has a ridiculously easy start to their schedule, so 4-0 is not unrealistic.
    If you think the Viking Kool Aid drinkers are delusional now, just wait til week 4.
    Alas, there will be much laughter and ridicule once the inevitable implosion comes. It could not end any other way.

  19. Pack_Attack says: Aug 18, 2009 3:56 PM

    2009 Numbers = 10,000 lakes, 25 INT’s, No Lombardi Trophies.

    Brett Favre as a game manager? Are you high? the signed Sage to be a game manager, what makes you think Childress is gonna be able to tell Brett Favre how to play? Do you even watch football? Seriously do you?
    also well done Jonk

    Hold your horses now, Favre isnt guaranteed to be the starter yet, he has to beat out sage and t-jack

  25. SeattleGBfan says: Aug 18, 2009 4:00 PM

    Sell them as quick as you can before BF starts holding his arm again, throwing INT’s and not leaving the game, ultimately killing the Vikes chances for the playoffs.
    Lets not forget about the turf and that 40 year old body being slammed to the deck, he will not be able to last (healthy anyway) and as I previously stated he will hang in the game and will hurt the vikes in the end!! Vikes fans am sure remember this too!

    He sucks with less motor force than Jackson or Rosenfels, perhaps, but some like it slow. Especially if it costs 12Million.

    just saw this on Twitter – Bernard Pollard is licking his lips in anticipation.

  29. Worst Poster Ever says: Aug 18, 2009 4:03 PM

    Favre is going to SUCK because he didn’t get the training camp reps with the rest of the team.
    We all know that QBs who don’t put the neccesary time in end up sucking.
    Huge mistake for the Vikings to let him get away with this crap, it’s only going to hurt the team.

    Favre is the most overrated qb in NFL history.

    I love it……not only will this make the north worth watching again, it pi$ses Packer and Viking fans off at the same time. So Packer fans are 50/50 on Brett getting hurt, well I’m all for fair play, here’s hoping Karen Rodgers slips on the soap when he’s going down on Ted Thompson in the shower.

    What does it matter who starts in the 2nd preseason game, T Jack Off can read the writing on the wall and will have to sit on the sidelines for another year. Favre will lead the NFL in INT’s and the worse news of all, Col Klink will be on the unemployment line and that’s bad news for the rest of the NFC North come the following year.

  40. TheBaySay says: Aug 18, 2009 4:20 PM

    You’ve done absolutely everything we asked you to Sage… great job. But there’s this forty year-old guy with a patched-up wing who’s been lookin’ awfully good down on a high school field, so try to take good care of this clipboard, okay? And we may get back to you late in the season. Now excuse me… Mr. Favre! Mr. Favre!! I’ve got the monogrammed towels you demanded!!

    ===================================
    You’re joking, right? If you read any of the posts from any of the other infinite Favre stories, it’s easy to ascertain that he simply did not want to participate in training camp. The Vikes broke camp on Friday, then there’s the weekend, so today makes perfect sense.
    As I said before, Chilly has really tightened the wringer his nuts are in by letting Favre make him into an even bigger douche than he already was. With this chain of events, it is obvious that Favre is in charge, and Chilly is not. This poor team and its fans are SCREWED.

    Favre probably keeps this charade going just to screw with you people who get all worrked up emotionally every time his name is mentioned. Every time you get mad, favre wins again.

    Just to let the Vikings Know if they want to spend 10 to 12 million on an old broken down QB I have a 1993 Jeep with a lot of miles on it that they can have for only $500,000

  51. Professor says: Aug 18, 2009 4:34 PM

    Purple Haze Harvin, there’s a big difference between Favre and McMahon. Jim left in ’88 and played for the Chargers, Eagles, Vikings and Cardinals before he ended his career in GB. Not even a close comparison.
    That being said, as a Packer fan I really could care less. I’m happy about it actually. Every Packer fan…and Viking player…knows Favre waited until now to sign because he hates training camp and wanted to skip it, and Chilly let him do it. Guaranteed that pissed off half the team.
    And I love seeing all you purple weiner eaters get so excited about signing Favre. Set aside the whiny Packer fans who feel betrayed, they don’t understand the politics of the game. Take it from a level headed Packer fan, this is not a good thing. Yes, I realize he’s better than what you have now but you’re making the same mistake you’ve been making for years. Your living in the now and not building for the future. Favre is not good enough to get you to the Super Bowl. If, by some act of god you actually make it, it will be because Brett rode AP’s coat tail the whole way. Then what are you going to do next year? You just alienated the other two QBs on your roster. Next year you will be starting over AGAIN. Of course that won’t matter because your owner is looking to make some quick cash before he moves the team to LA.
    Blow your load this year, because next year you probably won’t have a home team to root for.

    You know, you should set up a web site that reports breaking news on the NFL. I think the fans need something like that.
    If you did it right, you could then sell it to a major network then retire.

  54. Anarcho Purplism says: Aug 18, 2009 4:37 PM

    Prior to Week 13…Favre was pretty efficient & effective when he threw less than low-mid 30 passes per game.
    Looks like when he passed mid-upper 30 times…..he was not as efficient.
    Favre’s 2008 #s
    Consequently, MN offense averaged 28.5 passes last year.
    Viking’s 2008 #s
    The Vikes don’t need Favre to throw a ton. They need him to help keep D’s honest vs. AD* & be accurate with a couple strong throws per game. Then garnish the games with a little Sage when victory is apparent.
    Add in a Top 5 Defense & Top 5 Running Game = a Supabo contender.
    Re-match with Philly in the playoffs? PLAYOFFS!?!?

    Come on, the opinion here in MN is divided at best. Just like the varied reaction from the cheesers on this site, the reaction of Vike’s fans runs from disgust to ambivalence to misguided joy. The guy will make a difference of 1-2 games either way — everyone should just frigging relax. Well, relax until he gets to Lambeau at least, when Pack fans have every right to boo like hell if they want.

    People have such short memories. You can remember him for retiring/unretiring/retiring/unretiring/retiring/unretiring etc etc but I’m going to remember him for what he is, one of the greatest QB’s of my generation. I’m 34 so I can count Marino/Montana in my generation but really, I was younger then so I count Aikman/Favre etc etc.
    First off, Brett Favre is everything you want an NFL QB (or football player for that matter) to be. Think about it, the reason you hate him is the same reason you (possibly) used to love him….he has sooo much passion for the game. He loves it so much he can’t give it up.
    Hate him all you want but I’m envious. I wish I had a job that I loved so much that I couldn’t retire. I mean come on people, this guy has a bust waiting for him and you all are going to dog on the guy because he can’t retire and because the MEDIA sensationalizes his every move.
    Back in the day (even the 80′s and early 90′s) the media was not so prevalent as it is today and that really changes everything.
    I’m a Lions fan who never got to see his team beat Brett in Lambeau and here’s to hoping that he doesn’t have the same effect in Minnesota.
    Until then, welcome back to the Norse division!

  67. IllinoisPackFan says: Aug 18, 2009 5:17 PM

    For 16 seasons Favre undoubtedly had more pull in the state of Wisconsin than any of the states politicians. He had thousands upon thousands of fans who absolutely adored him. Not many franchises have that kind of quarterback in their history. For most Packer fans, me included, Favre was more than the face of the franchise, he was someone that was idolized and looked up to. So it is natural that many Packer fans are feeling more than a little betrayed right now. Favre has always lived by a different set of rules it seems and now is no different. As stories continue to surface here and there about him being a selfish self centered player it becomes more and more obvious that he probably was and is. It is well documented that him and Ted Thompson did not exactly see eye to eye and maybe Favre was pushed out the door in Green Bay. Most of the fan response I think is aimed at Favre the person and not so much Favre the football player. Yes I feel Minnesota is getting a very self centered football player who did everything he could to keep himself in the spot light and manage to weasel out of training camp. But, Minnesota is also getting a more than capable 40 year old quarterback. He instantly upgrades the position based on knowledge of the game alone. Favre will not be expected to do the things he was expected to do in Green Bay his final years or in New York last year. He has a dynamic run game and some potentially dangerous recievers. He will not be asked to carry the load, he will be asked to ease the load of Adrian Peterson, and that makes the Vikings dangerous. He will still make PLENTY of poor decisions and put his team in tough positions with turnovers, but he will make them a better team, thats always what you get with Brett Favre. Emotion aside, it was a great move for THIS year for the Vikings asuming he stays healthy, but as Professor mentioned, this does not help the Vikings in the future. As a Packer fan who grew up idolizing Favre myself, it will be hard to root against the man, but it will also be harder to see him in purple. After watching what Aaron Rodgers did last year, I am in no way upset that Favre is not our quarterback in Green Bay. In a divison that last year that had several question marks at quarterback, it looks like the NFC North is looking pretty good this year at the position. Aaron Rodgers has the talent and the weapons to continue to grow, if Cutler can find someone on the roster who looks like a reciever he should have a decent year, and Favre is probably the third best quarterback in the divison. So as a level headed Packer fan, I do not wish that Favre will get injured, but I wouldn’t mind seeing him through a few more touchdowns to fellas wearing green and gold this year. It is easy to feel betrayed by a player that has done as much for a franchise as Favre did in Green Bay, but this is a buisness. If Favre is doing this to get back at Ted Thompson, it just emphasizes his selfish nature, but if he just wants a chance to play the game he loves with a chance to win, then good for him. This signing definitely brings a little more drama to an already intense rivalry! Should be fun to watch!

  68. Ambrose says: Aug 18, 2009 5:19 PM

    When Brett runs onto the field at Lambeau, I will stand and cheer for him as I would any player that has meant as much as he has to the Packer organization. But as soon as the ball is kicked, I will scream to have his head taken off as I would any other opposing quarterback. Just because he is not considered good enough to be the QB for the Packers does not mean he hasn’t made the Vikings a better team. All of the name-calling by the idiots on both sides of this blog fence kind of reminds me of the first time I drank too much. “You’re a cheese-eating dirtbag!” “Am not you purple fart-bag”
    Give me a break…it’s only a game.

    It also has nothing to do with that great game I watched Sunday between the Saskatchewan Roughriders and the Hamilton Tiger-Cats, but I think getting CFL coverage here is a lost cause.
    I agree that it seems obvious that Favre wanted to avoid training camp. I can’t blame him. In today’s NFL training camp is a concept that is past its time, I think. The Packers had a chance to innovate and accomodate Favre and decided that “business as usual” was the way to go. Imagine what an attractive free agency destination Green Bay would become if they eliminated camp, began their regular season practice schedule two weeks before their first preseason game, and did away with the travel, isolation and extra wear and tear that 1950′s-era thinking brings. (Once one team does it the rest of the NFL will flock to the idea.) Green Bay is no victim here. Their handling of the Favre situation undid all they had accomplished with the Reggie White signing. Favre is perhaps the first player to challenge the concept of one-way loyalty that has existed in the NFL for many decades.
    As for the Vikes players, and Schlereth’s criticisms, I remember that The Tuna’s special treatment of Lawrence Taylor in New York, done explicitly and with the roster’s full knowledge, did nothing to harm the Giants and their two Super Bowl victories in that era.

    im not glad he signed with the vikes. BUT i think we can all be glad that he did it out of pretty much no where, so we dont have to listen about all the media speculation on the internet and on tv.

    hes not gonna throw 20 ints this year cuz he only has to pass 15-20 times a game what with the best running back tandem in football behind him. Vikings just became a team to beat in the NFC. they are now a complete team. i kinda feel bad for t-jack but hey its a big boy league. chilly is all in on this one they gotta make it win at least one playoff game for him to keep his post as “master manipulator”

    FAVRE IS A SUPERSTAR……….ESPN THRILLED WITH OCT. 5 RATING SURGE……..JERSEY SALES SOAR……..VIKING FANS EXCITED AND HOPEFUL……..PACKERS 6-10 AND NO MEDIA COVERAGE…….SAD.

    Bunch of Packer sissies. You placed your bet on A-Rodg. How’d that go for you. Now you’re stuck with it and, very possibly, the third best record in the NFC North (you should thank the stars for Detroit and Matt Millen).
    I think it’s cool that Favre just doesn’t give a flyin’ f&*k about what you pu$$ies think. So, he’s a prima donna – you know what really honks people off – that he’s able to do whatever he wants at 40. Half you haters probably don’t even have a job, let alone the one you want where you can tell the boss that you’ll come to work when you’re good and ready. Let’s face it – T-Jack and Sage are jokes and the Vikes really only need a decent QB to be a pretty decent force – Favre is the natural fit. Get over it and play ball. If Favre sucks as bad as you say, you should be able to put him in his place on the field. Oh, wait, you’re going to have to count on A-Rodg for that – I’ll take my chances with the old man whose started like a million games in a row over the guy who presided over a 6-10 season last year and managed to get hurt in less than a half when Favre did need a breather.
    Suck it Packer fans.

    Cable punching someone is funny but this hurts!

    Anyone that ever looked up to and idolized the likes of Favre is a fool.

    Enough about Favre – How come you aren’t reporting that Chaz Schilens broke his foot. Is ESPN quashing this story?
    ————–
    Yeah, they should ignore FAVRE and report on Chaz Shitlick…

    PackSucks-Real intelligent name by the way..
    Did you watch any Packer games last year? Or the news? Or look up stats? Or read the posts of EVERY PACKER FAN on this site in between all of you and your buddies’ 19-0 predictions?
    Let’s review. Aaron Rodgers had a better passer rating than Favre last year. In fact, Rodgers was the 4th best QB in the NFL all-around. The 6-10 record was due to a piss-poor defense, NOT Rodgers. Get it?!!
    Now by all means, get back to your “Favre is God even though I called him washed up and overrated five years ago” rants. Some of them are good for a laugh.

    He’s also an excellent driver. Wapner is on at Five. Fabulous prizes…………………He buy’s his underwear at KMart. Uh-Oh!
    Always ends sadly.

    @Dewey-
    Nothin’ like a little Norris division news to bring the wannabe troll out of hiding, thing is, it took just a bit too long for a genius like you.
    Your grubby little mitts musta been burnin’ up the keys, while you feverishly composed your diarrhea laced diatribe. Either that or you extended your weekend just a bit with your BFF in his mommy’s basement & still had a mouthful of goose down, while he was drivin’ his John Deere thru your balloon knot…eat that pillow TWINK, it’s plowin’ time again!
    My money’s on the latter!!!

    hate to say it, but it’s really over. I admit he’s a great qb of all time. Anyways, your done.

    Pack sucks is just a 13 year old with too many computer priveledges.
    Honestly, how’d that go for us? 4,000 yds and 28 TDs. Thats how it went. Packers were 6-10 due to injuries and bad defense. I don’t think our offense, which was top 5 was to blame.
