Brett Favre carves up the Bears

The Chicago Bears’ defense had no answer for Brett Favre today, and the result was an easy win for the Minnesota Vikings over their NFC North rivals.

Favre completed 32 of 48 passes for 392 yards, with three touchdowns and no interceptions, and the Bears only sacked him once. Chicago’s defense simply couldn’t stop Favre all day, and the Vikings won 36-10.

Bears quarterback Jay Cutler, on the other hand, continued to struggle on the road. Cutler completed 18 of 23 passes for 147 yards, with one touchdown. His two interceptions gave him a whopping 20 for the season.

The Bears are now 4-7, and whatever faint hopes they had of a playoff berth are gone. Chicago fans were optimistic about Cutler heading into the season, but 2009 has been a major disappointment.

It wasn’t a perfect game for the Vikings. Running back Adrian Peterson, who had a difficult week with an ankle injury and an illness, gained just 85 yards on 25 carries, and he fumbled twice. And Minnesota was flagged for 10 penalties.

But if it wasn’t perfect, it was impressive. The Vikings are now 10-1 and Favre is, at age 40, playing some of the best football of his career.

    Florio ask you if you minded taking this story because Favre continues to make him look stupider and stupider every day???

  5. danlinker says: Nov 29, 2009 8:07 PM

    LOVING THIS for Favre and the Vikings…oh wait, cards play Vikings next week.
    I try to be as realistic as possible. Cards with Warner and Fitz and others firing on all cylinders probably cannot beat the Vikings right now. They are literally on fire. It’s going to be a good game (UNLESS Leinhart plays – did well today but let’s not get crazy)
    And Warner and Favre…old, washed up right?

  6. bustabloodvessel says: Nov 29, 2009 8:07 PM

    Wait, shouldn’t Favre be breaking down and burning out at this point????? The only team I’m worried about at this point is New Orleans, but we will have the same record after tomorrow night!!

    ———————–
    Saying it all week. Peterson always develops a “coughing” illness when he plays the Bears. He is taking pointers from Favre on developing an illness to explain a poor performance away.

    Favre was right, Thomposn did nothing to improve Green Bays team, so he left for better days on the pasture.
    Face it, admit it, deal with it, and move on.

    Packer fans that want to jump in with your jizz filled mouthes, You should have lost to the Bears. Cuntler threw 4 picks and you sill only beat them 21-15 at home LMAO

  23. mnmaverick says: Nov 29, 2009 8:29 PM

    I was impressed with their killer instinct today. That was a Bear team playing for their playoff lives. The Vikes had to work for their points, it was far from easy.

  24. Bob Loblaw says: Nov 29, 2009 8:29 PM

    The Vikings held the Bears to 2 yards of offense in the second half. That’s back-to-back games where they’ve dominated defensively.
    If their D is playing they way it was expected to coming into the season, and the offense is as good as it looks, they should surpass the Saints as the best team in the NFC, even if Peterson is having a down season.

  25. Wiscdave says: Nov 29, 2009 8:30 PM

    “Favre won’t sign with the Vikings” Nope
    “Locker Room Schism” Nope
    “Interception machine” Nope
    “Late season collapse” Not looking that way
    I hope Favre wins the MVP just to see if Florio can write a story about it without mentioning “taint.”

  26. DocBG says: Nov 29, 2009 8:37 PM

    when will the talk begin about benching cuntler? I’ve yet to hear a single talking head bring this up, but this guy is just terrible. I don’t have a clue who their backup is, but if he is a professional NFL QB, odds are that he is better than this fool.
    btw, where in the hell are the bear homers running their stupid mouths? shouldn’t you be talking smack about how great you are….oh wait. thats right, get back to your shitty pizza, sulking, and waiting for the cubbies to get it together.

  27. CYGNUS X-1 says: Nov 29, 2009 8:48 PM

    let me see if I get this straight,when the bears were winning the division and going to the playoffs and superbowl it was because the rest of the dvision sucked but because lord farve is at qb the vikings are the greatest team ever assembled and no mention of the weak division they play in.that’s ok the rest of the division will be the ones laughing at you when you choke in the playoffs.as a bears fan I will be rooting like hell for the saints!

    We can only beat who is on out schedule man. Everyone in the NFC North plays basically the same teams. smackmyvickup, who is your fav team? Arent Vikings allowed to have a good time after going so long without this kind of success. Favre has been carving up defenses all year long. We have a team thats much better equipped for postseason success this year. Sundays are fun again!

    Adrian Peterson has some of this best games agaisnt the Bears, check out his rookie year 2007.

    Brett is most def the better quarterback right now, no doubt. But considering the whole situation that went down, there was no way Favre was coming back. –>How did that 4th round pick turn out that you got in return for Moss? He set NFL season records since he left. So its a very similar situation. Sometimes s**t hits the fan and you gotta go another way.
    PS– No disrespect to Favre, but you guys also have crazy weapons for him to hand off/throw to, so its safe to say he would not have those numbers here!

    Close your eyes… take a deep sniff and then start counting the days before the Vikings leave Minnesota.

    Seriously, dude is obviously geeked by his earlier success and that can carry him through a hell of a lot. If he couldn’t get it done with the Vikes, we’d be seeing that shoulder/groin/polio acting up again.

    Philtration, you need to put down that cup of paint thinner you’re drinking, it won’t help you ease the pain of having #4 wearing purple, kicking your favorite team’s ass twice this year. Otherwise, at least put a cinnamon stick in it, maybe that will help the bitterness.

  38. skolvikes says: Nov 29, 2009 10:00 PM

    Seriously disgruntled Packer fans, it’s time to move on. Quit trolling Vikes posts just to try to bash Favre. You said you were happy with Rodgers, Favre was washed up, and Thompson was a genius. Now Favre looks dominant, because he has a team willing to put good players around him instead of a GM only worried about being 20 million under the salary cap. Wipe away the tears, man up, admit you were wrong, and if you can’t applaud, at least acknowledge how great Favre is playing and the undeniable potential the Vikings have this year.

  41. jimmySee says: Nov 29, 2009 10:08 PM

    Cool for Brett — but the Packers made the right decision — they’ve got Rodgers who is doing great himself — and will be doing great when Brett finally does sit his butt down on that lawn tractor forever.
    So congrats to Brett and the Vikes — they are the best team in the NFC Central this year anyway.

    Vikings are great today and you are NOT….eat shit and deal with it!

  45. cusoman says: Nov 29, 2009 10:30 PM

    Those that keep bringing up the Steelers loss as a microcosm of the Vikings season really need to watch that game again, it wasn’t some NFC/AFC blowout like we’ve seen in the past and the Vikings played well, just a few minor miscues that led to major turnaround moments. And yes, I give the Pack the same credit on that subject as well, they played the Vikes fairly well, but had some major miscues.
    Stop living in your own little prideful worlds for a change and try to look at the bigger picture.

  46. Supersuckers says: Nov 29, 2009 10:40 PM

    Majik,
    The salary cap and whatever figure they are under means nothing. It is about real dollars. No video game dollars. You run your own business? Very Very Very Very Very hard to believe. The cap figure means nothing. This is a business. Please explain as a business owner why you cannot realize that “being under the cap” means you have free real money.

  47. Supersuckers says: Nov 29, 2009 10:42 PM

  48. marshall70 says: Nov 29, 2009 10:52 PM

    I guess Bear and GB fans can’t stand the fact that the Vikings are good right now. Don’t worry your teams will be good again.

  49. CanadianVikingFan says: Nov 29, 2009 10:59 PM

    Wow someone actually said this is the best team in the NFC Central… Someone has been under the rock for a long time. lol

  50. bustabloodvessel says: Nov 29, 2009 11:08 PM

    Supersuckers,
    Sit there and learn little boy. If your team truly sells out the way you all say they do, and has the great national following you think they do, then being under the salary cap does equate to real dollars. The cap is paid through shared revenue. That means the money comes from the nfl, or a good portion of it. So let’s say you are given 80 million from the nfl to cover a 120 million salary cap, any monies earned after 40 million is real dollars. Surely a team as great as the freakin Packers can do that. After all, you clown the Vikes for choking every season, so you must win it all every year, Oh wait a minute…………………..

  51. PervyHarvin says: Nov 29, 2009 11:10 PM

    A Super- Yep. But it looks good. Wasn’t Favre supposed to be breaking down by now instead of getting better?lol I swear a 100 Pack fans have said that! Not a chance. The rocket arm is better than ever!

  52. Pack83 says: Nov 29, 2009 11:12 PM

    Rodgers with the Vikings: 8-10 wins
    Favre with the Packers: 6-8 wins

  53. Norseman says: Nov 29, 2009 11:15 PM

    For all those who say the Vikings haven’t really beaten a good team, I’ll explain it again: The schedule is set by the NFL and each team plays the teams they are assigned to play. If you beat teams in your division, you win your division. If you do that, you get into the playoffs. There are no ‘gimmes’.
    It’s not the Vikings fault the teams they play suck this year, it’s that particular teams fault. Everyone starts the season with the same record. You make of the season what you make of it, good or bad. Instead of ragging on the Vikings, rag on their opposition. If the Vikings suck so bad, why aren’t crappy teams beating them? Yes, they lost to the Steelers. It would be more accurate to describe it as a give-away than a loss.

  54. Vikingsfan21 says: Nov 29, 2009 11:16 PM

    Before the season started I predicted the Vikings and Patriots to meet in the SB. I thought the Vikigns would lose but that is starting to change now… Vikes are legit

  55. Majik Man says: Nov 29, 2009 11:32 PM

    Super
    What does anything you just said have to do with my post, troll? I was merely stating that Thompson worries more about money than he does about winning.
    I could really care less if you think I’m a successful businessman or not, I’ve read you pathetic rants and your foolish opinions hold no merit. It’s Sunday night and here you are, trolling the Vikes messages, spewing your hateful ignorance. Have you nothing better to do? And how do you even see the computer with your head lodged so far up Thompson’s ass?
    Now get back to work, it’s about time for the 3rd Meal crowd to start rolling into the Taco Bell drive thru you’re jockeying tonight.

  56. mnmaverick says: Nov 30, 2009 2:42 AM

    Our Starting RT, Loadholt, and the MVP of our secondary, Winfield, didn’t play today. Winfield is our Troy Polamalu who was injured RIGHT BEFORE THE GAME WITH THE STEELERS. With Winfield out there, we destroy the Steelers. It’s funny how Pittsburgh has conveinently lost both Troy and Big Ben before and after playing the Vikings. They lost their games without them , too. We had a hobbled Bernard Berrian with a hamstring injury and Antoine Winfield out. We’tre healthy now boys, BRING IT ON!

  57. sand0 says: Nov 30, 2009 8:06 AM

    It is funny when you think that the Packers spent a 1st round draft pick on a QB at a time that Favre still had at least 5 solid years left in the tank, maybe more.

    ____________________________________
    I AM happy with Rodgers. Charger fans are happy with Rivers too, even though Brees is out there putting his HOF resume together. In a year or two, Vikings will be back to the always entertaining combo of Chilly and T Jack Off, and we will be set at QB for quite a while.
    I did think (as all Viking fans did) that Favre was washed up. Clearly I was wrong there, I’ll admit that. Amazing what happens when your GM knows how to build an offense. I think it’s great that Brett’s finally in a situation to succeed. Although I won’t wish him well, as he is a rival now, I will say he’s been fun to watch.
    As for Thompson.. Only two people on this site have ever called him a genius. One is a puritanical drug-addicted homer. The other one has a strange obsession with feces and outright admits to not knowing anything about football whatsoever. That ALONE should tell you exactly what Ted is about, and what he has done to this team and its fans.

    Clown,
    Ill try and keep this a simple s I can for you because I think it needs to be for you to get it. they turned a 4 million dollar profit last year. Lets say Thompson spends the 20 million they were under “the cap” What would be their operating income/loss then? You think you can make up 16 million dollars on jerseys for some overpriced free agent that may or may not fit well in your locker room?

  61. Supersuckers says: Nov 30, 2009 9:01 AM

    Majik,
    the only hate being spewed is your own. I was trying to educate you and you just dont seem to get it. trolling on Viking articles? What are you doing then? As a GM of a NFL team it IS their responsibility to manage funds on the operations side and the priority is just as high if not mroe then winning. thats what my post was suggesting. i didn’t think I actually has to spell it out for you but I guess I was wrong. I find it ironic that your screen name is Majik Man referencing Don Majkowski as you were undoubtedly a fan. He never played on a team that was 7-4 after 11 yet you say Thompson is a moron. I’d ask you to explain but I really do not care what a NFL know nothing like yourself has to say.

  62. Supersuckers says: Nov 30, 2009 9:07 AM

    Super
    I’m not even going to acknowledge your idiocy after this. Anyone who thinks that winning isn’t a GM’s top priority is a complete waste of time, as you obviously don’t get it.
    An example of a foolish opinion, here’s one… you think Thompson is doing a good job.
    And yes , what you are doing is trolling. I’m reading a post about my team and my favorite player. You’re simply so pathetic that have nothing to do but look for Vikes posts to try and bash a 10-1 team that embarrassed your Thompson led Packers… twice. It’s 10 o’clock, time for you to start putting away the McGriddles and getting the McChickens in the fryer.
    Beer Cheese,
    Not trying to bash you man, just the derelicts like Supersuckers, who think Thompson is the second coming of Christ, and just come to these posts to bash Favre and talk about how the Packers are better than the Vikes. Rodge rs is good, just not as good as a 40 year old Favre, and without a better coach and talent around him, he won’t get any better.

  67. Ambrose says: Nov 30, 2009 11:27 AM

    I am officially convinced. The Vikings truly are the best of the worst.

  68. Supersuckers says: Nov 30, 2009 11:33 AM

    Majik,
    Of course winning is a priority. But it is a business and being financially sound is just as impoprtant as winning. Thompson’s peers (people who would know) say he is doing a great job in Green Bay. I agree. So what? Thompson and his philosophy are two things I agree with. Field competitive team being financially sound so the team is a perennial playoff contender. I love Ted Thompson. Favre your favorite player? So I can assume you jumped from Packer to Viking fan when the old man finagled his way to Minnesota and the comfy 70 degree no wind dome? You accuse me of things I never said. Thompson isnt the second coming of Christ. He is the Jesus of the football world.

  69. purpleguy says: Nov 30, 2009 11:49 AM

    One thing is certain: the Vikes are the best team in the NFCN. Then again, that ain’t saying much since the other three teams suck.
    If the Vikes beat the Cards and the Bengals the next two weeks I’ll get a bit more excited.

  70. PervyHarvin says: Nov 30, 2009 11:53 AM

    @ Ambrose-
    You have been gone so I will let you slide this time. See,there is a new order of things here on PFT. In case you did not notice….us Vikings and fans are you know…quite a bit of a BIG DEAL. We will come troll your threads if we want to speak with the lower class. Vikings threads are now the “Official Royalty of PFT” Intruders will be penalized heavily with cruel smack and Packer truths.
    Now march along now…can’t be seen hanging with the lower class. Nothing personal guy.

  71. Majik Man says: Nov 30, 2009 11:57 AM

    Super
    Thank you for proving your complete stupidity. Comparing Thompson to Christ. You are by far the worst homer I have ever encountered. I think we’re done here, I want no part of your cult.

    Super,
    I was just trying to understand your logic. I mean, Packers fans are always going on about how great and historic your club is………..wait, why are you even on here? I saw nothing in this article that said Green Bay or Packers. Are you that upset about your team that you have to post on your rivals’ threads? I guess that makes YOU the clown, huh? Oh, and until you can correct simple grammer issues you are having, don’t think you need to simplify anything for me, I promise I can understand more than your third grade education level can! Come talk to me about that when your IQ jumps above 5.

  75. Supersuckers says: Nov 30, 2009 12:45 PM

    Then that makes you a Ted fan since he is a Packer. get used to it. Cause the Teddy way is the steady way. Built for 10 to 15 years of competing. Not cycling down every 5 years. The Vikings are a good team right now. Will not deny that. We will all see how good they realy are come January. If you could lose the anguish you must still be feeling after two losses to Minnesota and concentrate on the positive things going on in Green Bay you may be with the rest of us dying for one more chance at Minnesota. this time with a cohesive pass protection group and the best defense in the NFL.

  76. PervyHarvin says: Nov 30, 2009 12:46 PM

    @ BeerCheese – LMAO That was all in jest guy. Who the hell cares about Prince?? I sure don’t. Super my care about Rosie though! lol Bad coaching?? In case you did not notice Beer,ChillyBall died the day the big money ink dried for chilly. He is becoming ruthless like Hoodie up in N.E.

    Then obviously you realize this is a business and foolish spending is what does businesses in? The Green Bay Packers cannot generate anymore revenue on the football side. every seat to every game is sold out. The tv revenue they get is the same everyone else gets. they just refurbished the stadium. They raise ticket prices damn near every year. This team could go 16-0 one year and win it all and not have more revenue then then a bad season. (minimal increase in merchandise revenue I will concede) They have a investment department that invests their cash reserves trying to sqeeze more revenue onto the books. Last year that took a big hit. You have to know the whole picture before you can argue against Thompson’s philosophy with any credibility.

  79. Majik Man says: Nov 30, 2009 1:21 PM

    And Super,
    That #1 defense you’re bragging about, that’s only in yards allowed. And they don’t give up many yards because teams usually start with really good field position against the Packers, so there aren’t many yards needed to score a touchdown, because their special teams are horrendous. And they lead the league in penalties, which also shortens the opponents field.
    They may be #1 in yards allowed, but the Packers are ranked #12 in points allowed, at nearly 20 per game. Time to stop polishing the turd.

  80. PervyHarvin says: Nov 30, 2009 1:33 PM

    @ Supersuckers -
    Are you insane??? 1998 is gone.Has nothing to do with todays Vikings. What does 1996 have to do with the Packers today? Nothing.They were good then.

  81. packers4life says: Nov 30, 2009 1:35 PM

    I can’t wait when Favre goes to Chicago in December later this year. You remember how he performed last time he was there? How about a 40.9 passer rating in the cold Chicago weather.

  82. Majik Man says: Nov 30, 2009 1:43 PM

    Super
    You do know that teams get a considerable bump in revenue for making the playoffs, even more for hosting playoff games, and a lot more for making the Super Bowl, and again, even more if they win it. This is why winning is the best form of money management in the NFL.

  83. packers4life says: Nov 30, 2009 1:43 PM

    “What star is in your press box? Rosie O’Donnell?”
    Pat Morita (sp?) from the Karate Kid was on the Packers sideline one time and met Favre before he passed away. The dude was a big Packers fan. Tony Shaloub from Monk also goes to a lot of Packer games as well.
    and you Viking fans tell Packer fans not to troll but what do you do? You invade just about every Packer story. How does it feel now?
    and who’s your QB in two years? Jackson? Rosenfels?….Either way, I know that the Packers will still have Rodgers.

  84. Supersuckers says: Nov 30, 2009 1:49 PM

    Pervy,
    It has EVERYTHING to do with 1998. EVERYTHING. And you do know it.
    Majik,
    Aggresive penalties are nto a problem when you have the firepower to overcome them. Kick coverage has been a concern. Getting turnovers hasn’t Look at that stat asshat. I dont normally call names like a 12 year old but that rhymed. lol

  85. Supersuckers says: Nov 30, 2009 2:08 PM

    Majik,
    Define considerable. The players get bonuses. The organizations do not. They get some added ticket revenue if they play home playoff games but most of that goes to the NFL as they run the show and set prices for playoff games. Certainly not enough dollars to make a blip in a p/l report.

  86. PervyHarvin says: Nov 30, 2009 2:11 PM

    @ packers4life – Yah,I remember Karate Kid there. Guess we’ll just have to one up you and get Chuck Norris! LOL
    Dude,you know trolling shouldn’t even be a term anymore. People go and post where they want freely,I know I do. I would be totally bored on a Viking blog talking to all Viking homers.Boring!
    Don’t knock Jackson,he is growing. Tebow coming too.Chilly gonna prove he can play pro ball!
    Super- You are like the last man on Earth shouting Viking profanity to the sky. Means nothing and YOU KNOW IT!!!

  87. Supersuckers says: Nov 30, 2009 2:31 PM

    Pervy,
    Are you a brotha? Us packer fans want one more shot at the Vikes. In a game that will end someones season. Oh I cannot wait!!!!

  88. bustabloodvessel says: Nov 30, 2009 2:33 PM

    Super,
    Just so you know, I don’t think TT is doing a horrible job, he just needs to invest a lot more in some o-linemen, and a supporting cast for Rodgers. Defense, no matter what anyone says, is strong. A little old though.

  89. Majik Man says: Nov 30, 2009 2:52 PM

    Actually, Super, the NFL pays teams additional revenue based on performance. Divison winners get paid about $600,000, and the level increases through the playoffs, with the Super Bowl winner receiving an additional $3.5 million, an the loser getting $2.6 mil. And these were the numbers in 2005, so I’m sure these sums have inflated. What it added up to was an additional $6 million and change in revenue. I would say that’s more than enough to make a “blip.” And the NFL keeps all the playoff ticket revenue, so you’re wrong about that as well. Teams profit from merchandise and concession sales with home playoff games, not ticket sales. Stop making stuff up to prove your point, no one believes your lies.
    You brag about the $4million profit last year, but did you know that the Packers 2007 profit was over $21 million? This is what happens when you win, you make more money.

  90. Supersuckers says: Nov 30, 2009 2:53 PM

    Its the ones that cant get over the Brett favre thing that have a problem with him.

  91. Supersuckers says: Nov 30, 2009 3:18 PM

    Majik,
    The 17 million dollar loss in operating income was based upon investment losses nothing else. The funds you are referring to go to the players you idiot!!!!!!!!!!!! They dont get paychecks for post season games. They get paid on the Tuesdays during the regular season. Thats it. 3.89 million divided by 53 is 73,369 which was paid to each member of the colts in the year that you are referencing. that money doesnt go to the team!! HAHAHAHAHHAHAHA OWNED! i am embarrased for you.

  92. Chickenfoot says: Nov 30, 2009 3:27 PM

    Super:
    How about you get enough to enough wins to qualify for the postseason, before you worry about who you are going to be playing?
    Christ, have a little common sense.
    You catigate Pervy and i for our “crystal balls”.
    What the hell exactly are you doing, if not predicting?
    Now, I’m sure you’ll come back with some qualifying remark that it’s your opinion and not stated as fact, right?
    By the way, are presnap penalties agressive? no. They are the sign of an undisciplined team.
    Ravens and Steelers back to back, you have fun with that.
    We will see if you are still chirping in 2 weeks.

  93. Majik Man says: Nov 30, 2009 3:39 PM

    Umm, no, the NFL pays the TEAM that money, the players have a separate bonus that is paid out. And I didn’t mention the $17 million loss, just the fact that the Packers make a lot more money when they win, just like every other team. Why don’t you stop name calling long enough to do a little research, and you won’t look so foolish. This is the part where I would say “owned,” if only I was an adolescent fry cook such as yourself. Yawn.

  94. Supersuckers says: Nov 30, 2009 3:51 PM

    want one more shot vs. will get one more shot is definitely not a statement of fact but of want.

  95. Supersuckers says: Nov 30, 2009 3:52 PM

    Saw some of that pre snap stuff you are talking about yesterday on the Minnesota offense. It happens.

  97. Supersuckers says: Nov 30, 2009 4:02 PM

    That money goes to the players Majik. i dont know what else to tell you. they do not get paid. The Nfl pays them if they advance as a team. I just dont know how else to put it. Provide a link or something that shows both the franchise AND the players get paid and I will officially apologize and retire. You wont find one because the team gets squat. You may be thinking of college football teams and bowl games.

    Point is, you aren’t even close to the playoffs yet.

  100. PervyHarvin says: Nov 30, 2009 4:21 PM

    Since the NFL-AFL merger in 1970, there have been 18 times when a team went into a playoff game with a chance to complete a three-game season sweep, according to STATS, Inc. Those teams are 11-7.
    Even if you see us Suckers, You don’t stand great chances.Because history means everything right?? LOL Take Favre and company out of the playoffs in our house??? LMAO You are a dreamer suckers!!

    It is there in the link that the NFL does pay teams. Technically you 2 are both right, as the payout doesn’t cover the expenses, but they are paid by the NFL, the players are as well.
    I’m embarassed for you.

    “It is funny when you think that the Packers spent a 1st round draft pick on a QB at a time that Favre still had at least 5 solid years left in the tank, maybe more.”
    Dude, give me a break. You were probably one of the idiot Viking fans who thought Favre was finished after chucking 29 picks in 2005.
    No one, I mean no one thought he had something left after that season. Everyone was calling for him to retire.

  105. packers4life says: Nov 30, 2009 4:50 PM

    “That #1 defense you’re bragging about, that’s only in yards allowed.”
    …and takeaways.

  106. Beer Cheese Soup says: Nov 30, 2009 5:27 PM

    Wow. It seems Suck is going after the record for being wrong the most times in one thread.
    Our hate for Thompson has nothing to do with Brett Favre. F*** Brett Favre. He’s clearly still got it, but we don’t need him.
    It’s like Brees with the Saints. See any Charger fans crying themselves to sleep because he’s not there anymore? Hell no, because they’re doing just fine without him. Same with us, well kind of. See, we WOULD be doing just fine as well, but Thompson has completely failed to put the talent around Rodgers to allow him to be successful.
    We don’t need a QB. What we DO need are some guards, a consistent safety, a punter, a TE who can block, a dependable kicker, and someone on special teams who can tackle. These are all things that Ted had, threw away, completely failed to replace, and then refused to admit mistakes or change his approach.
    The Vikings and the Ted Show have both had the same amount of time to build a successful team. They have done a lot of things the same way. They’ve both had good picks, no-brainer picks that fell into their laps, some bad picks (although none as bad as Harrell). However, the Vikings have been very successful in their rebuild, and Ted has miserably, epically, fallen on his face.
    The only difference between the two, and the reason one has been successful and the other has not, is the willingness to use trades, free agency, and occasionally be willing to spend extra money, not just depending on the draft, which hasn’t exactly been Ted’s strong point either. There’s also another difference: Vikings are 10-1. Packers aren’t.
    THAT is why all true Packer fans hate Thompson. Not because of Favre, but because he straight up sucks at his job, and has destroyed what was once a competitive franchise and a strong fanbase, as well as helped a division rival to be successful, all in the name of stroking his ego and saving money. I only hope we can start to repair all the damage he has done fairly soon.

  107. Vikes#28Owns says: Nov 30, 2009 6:48 PM

    Wow all I hear about is how the Vikings are no good even though we swept the Packers. There is a great way to tell which of two teams is better and that usually is decided by head to head games. Hey guess what the Vikes are 2-0 against the Packers.
    Also I constantly hear about how the Vikings haven’t played anyone good. Ok well I’m curious then do these wins not count? Because if that is the case then the Packers have won 1 game against the Cowboys. Their other superb wins have come at the hands of the Bears, Lions X2, Rams, 49ers, and Browns. Then of course there was that stellar game against the winless Bucs. What was the outcome of that one anyway? I mean I am pretty sure they are no longer winless.
    And don’t even get me started about delusional Steeler fans. They start the year 2-2 with wins coming against a lost Titans team and annually slow starting Chargers team. They rattle off wins against the Lions and Browns. Then they are gifted a win against the Vikings because of a phantom tripping call and a dropped pass turned interception by Chester Taylor. Defeat a slumping Broncos team and suddenly they are the next Superbowl winners. Pretty sure they dropped 3 straight now and a question mark to make the playoffs. I’m sure Hines Ward can go tell the media why his team is the best while the locker room implodes. I didn’t know there were fans I disrespected more than the Packer’s fan but I’ve been proven wrong.
    Knowing all this I still don’t think the Vikings are the Superbowl favorites. They have a lot of work to do and mistakes to clean up. They are 10-1 which is good but you don’t win it all in November. So choke or no choke at least we can say we were close. Better than sitting at home in February.

  108. Supersuckers says: Nov 30, 2009 10:22 PM

    Beer Cheese,
    No true packer fan would hate Thompson. I will admit that I was wrong about the league team payouts. None of you with the exception of Majik knew that. But really, It’s moving money from your left pocket to your right pocket. I will live up to my word through a technicality and leave this horrendous site with know nothings. take solice in knowing that I am a admitted know nothing.

    I didn’t think it possible, but You’re even more wrong than usual. ALL true Packer fans want their team to win. That means getting rid of Thompson first, whether you admit it or not. As for you leaving, that’s a pile of crap. We’ve all heard that one before. I hope to God it’s true, but I’ll believe it when I see it.

    ____________________________________
    HELL NO, but even if I had, that wouldn’t have much to do with football. I’d love to know how that’s relevant, but not at the expense of you once again failing to keep your word and leave this site.
    –and THEN Suckers says:
    How exactly has Thompson fallen on his face? You suck as a negative GB Packer Fan. Life brings ups and downs. You seem to be always down. 7-4 and on a run. What more needs to be said?
    ____________________________________
    By now, everyone should be aware of the lowlights of Thompson’s career. It would be far too time consuming to list all of them, but I’ll indulge you with a brief recap: Wahle, Rivera, Sharper, Sherman, Gado for Morency, Longwell, McCarthy, Manuel, Flanagan, Henderson, HARRELL, Bush, Frank Walker, Hawk, Moss, Rouse, Crosby, Ryan, Ari Fleischer, Frost, Bush again, Raji, 10-6 to 4-12 and then 13-3 to 6-10, split fan base, Baby Swiss, sweep by Vikings and loss to 0-8 Bucs. Again, these are just his MAJOR failures, and are as summarized as possible. To list all of the damage he’s done, or to go into more detail on the ones I listed, would take volumes.
    That said, I’m not negative at all. I am a REALISTIC Pack fan. I’m sure having your blind sexual concupiscence for Ted makes it a lot easier to accept your favorite team being destroyed while you watch, but I’m simply too much of a fan to handle that, and I also don’t like men to begin with.
    Also, 7-4 is better than 6-10, but it’s pathetic considering who we’ve faced so far. We still have to play the Ravens and Refs, both on the road. If we win both of those, maybe I’ll have a glimmer of hope. I don’t see that happening at all though.
