Vikings fans attempt to woo Favre back with billboard

Vikings fans want Brett Favre to play another season, and aren’t holding it in.

Late Monday night, a massive purple billboard with yellow lettering was put up on U.S. 98 West that reads as follows: 

“HEY NO. 4, DO MINNESOTA FANS LOVE YOU AND WANT YOU BACK NEXT YEAR?
“YOU BRETTCHA.”
The billboard is the product of over 84,000 Facebook members who began a “Favre appreciation” group and donated money to its construction.  
The group’s founder, Jay Tappe of Minneapolis, says he started the movement because he was saddened by the pummeling Favre took during the Vikings’ playoff loss to the Saints.
Tappe clearly isn’t bothered by Favre’s last play of the game.

    Yes, even though he’s the Patron Saint of Crippling Interceptions they all want him back so they can have a huge dose of self-pity again next January.
    These fans are getting worse than Red Sox/Boston fans.

  2. Tears_of_a_Favre says: Feb 4, 2010 4:08 PM

    Title should read “Vikings FANS attempt to woo Favre back with billboard.”
    Vikings organization has only offered chauffeur service. They better step up their game.

    Florio is gonna be pissed you snagged a Favre article from him! I didnt know anybody else on this site was allowed to write about Favre.

    Favre is wanted back???? What an attention whore!!!!

  5. btg19 says: Feb 4, 2010 4:10 PM

    The title of the story is pretty misleading…the Vikings have done no such thing, the fans have, and it should be titled as such.

  6. RayDaMayor says: Feb 4, 2010 4:11 PM

    Other Billboard Seen in Minneapolis:
    PLEASE COME BACK BRETT. WE PROMISE YOU A NEW OFFENSIVE LINE TO PROTECT YOU.

  7. Barometer says: Feb 4, 2010 4:14 PM

    Ummm, shouldn’t that billboard be in Mississippi where #4 may actually see it?

  8. Zinn says: Feb 4, 2010 4:14 PM

    I do not see a problem with Favre’s interception. It was simply the same as an incompletion. If Favre throws incomplete the Vikings have a 4th and 15 at thier 38 and most likely have to punt and go to OT. The opnly realistic chance the Vikings had besides Favre running the ball was to throw it up and see what happens. The INT meant nothing was lost in taking a chance to win the game. Normally I would say run the ball but considering the pounding Favre had taken and the state of his ankle that would probably have not been a good idea.
    Favre’s INT did not hurt the Vikings. Favre was the reason the Vikings had a chance to win and the reason they made it the championship game. People who bring up the INT simply no nothing about football.

    Or his 19 years of choking. Well played Mr. Silva.

  10. Fart Face Killa says: Feb 4, 2010 4:16 PM

    He was saddened by the pummeling, so he decides to try to persuade him back for another year.
    Wow… what a smart guy!

  11. aloud2judge says: Feb 4, 2010 4:16 PM

    And does #4 love the Vikings and their fans?
    You Brettcha!
    He’ll be back to show domination over the NFCS and try again for the SB.
    So get over it GB fangos…….

    if they want to woo favre back, they should do it with vicodin.

  13. Fan of Football says: Feb 4, 2010 4:22 PM

    PFT can’t help to take a shot at Favre in every post, no matter how positive that post is. A perfect example of a media publication pandering to the vocal minority.

  14. CleMarter says: Feb 4, 2010 4:22 PM

    I don’t think he really needs convincing. He’s going to mull it over for the next 5 months and then he’s going to decide to “give it one more go.” He’ll make his decision to return right after training camp ends. We’ve seen this same song and dance for the last 3 years now.

  15. purpleman527 says: Feb 4, 2010 4:23 PM

    “Tappe clearly isn’t bothered by Favre’s last play of the game”
    You keep blaming Favre when it wasn’t Favre’s fault. The Coach screwed up with 12 men in the huddle after a time out, which pushed the Vikes out of field goal range. If Favre throws an incompletion, it is a 55 yard field goal try. If they miss, Saints get the ball at mid field with 10 seconds left. If the Vikes had a 3 and 7 with no penality, all they do is run for 2 or 3 yards, call time out with :03 seconds left for a 50 yard try. It is not that difficult.
    It is a meaningless point to blame Favre. Other than it is the cool thing to do in the media world.

  16. TheBaySay says: Feb 4, 2010 4:23 PM

    Gee, I can’t think of one single thing in this whole world for which the money could have been better spent. Minnesota: they elected a pro rassler to be governor, but they’re not done yet by a long shot.

    Childress needs to promise to take a demotion and go from head coach to Favre’s personal full time fluff-boy from now on to get the bruised Diva back into the NFL.
    Let Leslie Frasier coach the team. Chilly will have his schedule (and mouth) full. Sorry, Pervy. The job is taken.

  22. toddm6d says: Feb 4, 2010 4:32 PM

    Just think… if Peterson wasn’t a fumbling machine he might have been used on that drive instead of forced to stand on the sideline to watch Chester Taylor get stuffed twice.

  23. shaggytoodle says: Feb 4, 2010 4:33 PM

    That way the viking fans can totally blow up and talk about how much they outplayed the teams they lost to while turning over the ball a handful of times. Just remember how pissed you were at those two HORRID INT’s he threw one into triple coverage and one across the the body and field, be careful what you wish for Viking fans….

  24. raiders177 says: Feb 4, 2010 4:37 PM

  26. rpiotr01 says: Feb 4, 2010 4:39 PM

    Yeah right. Like Favre gives a sh!t about fans.
    Ask Packer fans what Favre thought about their pleas that he not go and play for the hated Vikings.

  27. JerkStore says: Feb 4, 2010 4:39 PM

    Zinn, I believe Longwell has been quoted as saying they were prepared to attempt a kick if they didn’t gain a yard.
    I don’t get people saying it meant nothing because they “probably” would have missed the kick anyway. Well, besides insinuating that there was nothing positive Favre could have done on that play besides throw a bone-headed INT, wouldn’t you have at least wanted the chance to kick it?
    Which has a better chance at getting the Vikings to the Super Bowl, a 56-yard FG attempt or a kneeldown by the Saints?
    Favre’s INT took away any chance at a game winning FG, and that is why it meant a great deal more than “nothing.”

  28. Marv_Sleezy says: Feb 4, 2010 4:39 PM

    Buffalo tried this with Cowher – Same mistake – Idiots put it up in their community, not in the guys community that they want to see it.
    Brett may literally never step foot in the state again.

  29. shadowman1433 says: Feb 4, 2010 4:40 PM

    The Vikings better keep sucking up if you want farve back.

  30. Mick730 says: Feb 4, 2010 4:40 PM

    “People who bring up the INT simply no nothing about football.”
    And you “NO” nothing about football or the proper use of the English language.
    Here’s a hint for you moron: A late throw, across the middle of the field, when one’s team is in field goal range, in the closing seconds of a game, is something even a rookie qb knows ( notice it isn’t no’s or even nose?) not to do.
    Here’s another hint for you: “know nothing”, not no nothing. Where in the world did you get your education?
    As far as the billboard goes, if Jay Tappe of Minneapolis is 13 years old or younger, it’s a cute story. Sadly, he’s more likely than not a middle aged loser with serious issues.
    “BRETT!! PLEASE COME BACK!!! WE CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT YOU!!!!
    Mr Tappe knows this because ESPN tells him so. And as everyone knows, everything that is puked out over the Boob Tube is gospel.

    HAHA you guys hate that we had that dude this year putting up some of the best statistical numbers a QB has EVER put up. People can RIP on Favre all they want, you know the Vikings shouldn’t have even been in that spot to possibly win. 5 turnovers and we were going for the win!? AP dropped the ball, pun intended.

  33. Ambrose says: Feb 4, 2010 4:43 PM

    What a coincidence! I saw a huge billboard just outside of Green Bay that said; “Thank you (4) the memories. We’ll never forget you… Brent.” He has fans everywhere I guess.
    Seriously, these people that put up the billboard don’t know this self-centered egomaniac like we do. They are fringe-dwelling parttime fans that like a good story, like the dog rescued from the iceflow. Their hearts are in the right place but they sit on their brains.
    Would any reasonable fan truly want this guy back, knowing that the odds of him repeating his performance from this year are very low? Hey…loud ones…what do you want? Do you want him back?

  34. TFBuckFutter says: Feb 4, 2010 4:44 PM

    Viking fans are insane.

  35. RealPervyHarvin says: Feb 4, 2010 4:48 PM

    No zinn, an incomplete pass still gives us the chance at a long fg. Favre blew it.

  36. marcduke says: Feb 4, 2010 4:50 PM

    @Zinn
    The Saints returned the ball to midfield with time on the clock. They had enough time to get an out route and stop the clock for a chance a FG – luckily the defense took that chance away from the Saints.
    The only difference between that INT and the one he threw against the Giants in 2008 was about 20 yards of field position.

  37. thefloater says: Feb 4, 2010 4:52 PM

    Why not come back? The Vikings, like the Titans last season, were probably the best team in the NFL for the year. They just laid a stinker and got a lot of bad calls in one playoff game.

  38. Adam-Chris Scheftersen says: Feb 4, 2010 4:55 PM

    ——————————
    The ball was at the New Orleans 38, nimrod. And Longwell is 8 of 8 from 50+ yards in the past 2 years. Five yards from Favre (either running or throwing to the wide open receiver in front of his face) would’ve given them an excellent shot of winning the game and going to the Super Bowl.
    You clearly “no nothing” on the subject.

  43. IAVikefan says: Feb 4, 2010 5:09 PM

    Interceptions be damned… what Favre did for the Vikings is worth a big thank you, and i personally would like him back next year… even if he DOES knock our team out of the playoffs with another interception, it’s still worlds better than the other QB’s on the roster, or available in free agency. This was the most exciting year in 10 years for our team ( thats right, OUR team), and the fans getting togather to show appreciation is a class act. Packers fans should take notes.

  47. Cowboy22 says: Feb 4, 2010 5:26 PM

    Favre Apologists are everywhere. Tell me this Zinn. Doesn’t paying the man 12 million dollars, picking him up at the airport, letting him skip the whole off-season, letting him go home during the season on a regualr bassis, tailoring the play-book specifically to him, letting him change plays etc. create an expectation that he should be able to gain 3 or 4 yards when you really need it? Isn’t that why you do all that extra stuff for him? If 3 or 4 yards is too much to ask, why was he brought in? Rosenfels could have thrown that ball. Let’s not act like this was the first time he has done this. he has ended 3 different teams seasons in 3 consecutive years on throws just like that. The most amazing thing about his career is that he has made people like you actually feel sorry for him after he does this. BTW, Darren Sharper alone returned three ball for TD’s this year, 2 from over 90 yars away. Throwing that INT was a far bigger risk than simply taking the sack.

  48. JuicyMelon says: Feb 4, 2010 5:27 PM

    Bring Favre back! The loss was not his fault, but a whole combined team effort. All of Minnesota and the fans could use one more season of #4…

    You don’t get it. No one hates. They laugh. We all laugh at you. You’re team had a great year and you are STILL laughed at because you’re so delusional. You’re Raiders fans only your team (sometimes) post a .500 or better record. Everyone KNEW Favre was going to choke when it came down to it. And what happened? EVERYONE LAUGHED.
    As for his stats….he didn’t rank 1st in the league in anything but INT%, and he didn’t rank in the top 10 all time in anything (He had the 11th lowest INT% in NFL history. That’s it).
    So again, we laugh because you have no idea what you’re talking about.

  50. this class sucks says: Feb 4, 2010 5:32 PM

    @Zinn
    You are wrong. I see your point that had he thrown an incompletion it would not have been the best situation but you are missing several things. First, why would they punt it away? Why not go for a long field goal? It was only a few yards out of Longwell’s career long in a dome. Second, why not fall forward for a few yards to make it any easier FG attempt. If Favre was incapable due to his injuries to fall forward than he shouldn’t have been on the field. Playing hurt, if it limits you abilities, is not tough its stupid. The point of the roll out is too split the field in half to narrow the QBs field of view and give him the option to run. If he didn’t think he could run if he had too (which he did) than he should have taken himself out of the game. Favre (with a little help from his RBs) was the reason they lost that game. They were in position to win and he blew it. If Vikings fans want Favre back thats fine, he had a good regular season but don’t expect anything different.

  51. Jared Allen's Shart Stain says: Feb 4, 2010 5:33 PM

    If you’re not a Viking hater, why the hell wouldn’t you want to watch Favre play another season? When he’s on, which was damn near EVERY SNAP OF EVERY GAME, he was money.
    As far as Favre’s interception, did the Saints produce points off that?? No. Get the hell over it.
    The only people that don’t want him back are the emotional little bitches who seem to put their own pride and self worth onto a game that they SPECTATE, not play.
    The venom displayed is like watching mean-spirited teenage girls on the rag.
    Do you ladies even enjoy the game of football outside of saying bitchy things on this website?

    The billboard is meaningless, Favre will make his decision based on the following:
    1. Since Favre changed half of the play calls sent into the huddle, he will now demand half of the OC’s salary plus his own for playing QB.
    2. Since everyone thinks T Jack is T Joke, (with the exception of the Viking fans who think he is a black Joe Montata but hey, they also thought the Vikings were going to win the Superbowl) Favre will want half the QB coach’s salary to help T Joke become a NFL QB someday.
    3. Childress has to promise not to wear any more dresses. Favre realizes that the Viking fans get a collective woody over the sight but he can’t doesn’t want his personal chauffeur out in public in a dress.
    4. The state of Minnesota has to promise to build a new toilet bowl to replace the Humpty Dome and rename it Favre’s Dome.
    Those requests should satisfy his ego.

    This year was the ‘perfect storm’ of an easy schedule, the Williams Sisters got their suspension delayed, and the least amount of injuries in the division. Most people figured this was their chance at the Super Bowl, finally. And then, CHOKE!! He can always try it again, but it’s a long road… well, for the players who actually work in the offseason anyway.

  66. Sociofan says: Feb 4, 2010 5:53 PM

    Favre’s interception did not lose the game. From the 38, you are looking at a 56 yard FG. Very low probability for connecting. His career long is 54 yards. I think that the two fumbles inside the 10 were FAR bigger contributors to the loss than the pick. The Vikes lost as a team.

  67. Jared Allen's Shart Stain says: Feb 4, 2010 5:55 PM

    Cowboy22, wasn’t there some pesky coin toss between the INT and the 3 point field goal?
    Should we blame the coin landing on tails for everything and hate coins from this day forward?

  68. Cowboy22 says: Feb 4, 2010 6:12 PM

    Fan of Football:
    So before Longwell kicked the 54 yarder, 54 yards was not in range? How is 2 yards longer than his career long “not in field goal range?.
    That is why they call it “range”. It is not exact, it is within reason. Longwell had made his LAST 8 attempts from 50 yards or longer and I’m positive every one of those didn’t clear the crossbar by just a few inches. How much more evidence do you need? 63 yards was not in anyones “range” until Tom Dempsey did it. But I guess we’ll never know for sure……BECAUSE FAVRE THREW THE INT.

  73. CaptainFantastik says: Feb 4, 2010 6:41 PM

    Vikings fans:
    1) You DO realize that Favre is credited with more turnovers in that game than AP right? In fact, the stat sheet reads 2 INT’s and 1 fumble lost by Favre. You can debate who’s at fault for the hand-off mishap……but what’s not debatable is that Favre turned the ball over to the other team more than Peterson did. The Vikings recovered all Peterson’s fumbles. So try again.
    2) It is extremely unrealistic to expect another year like that out of a 41 year old man. Peyton was never able to follow up his record setting season and niether was Brady. Both came back down to Earth. Favre will as well and in his case that means crashing well below sea level.
    3) Favre and the Vikings were lucky it was only 5 yards for the 12 men penalty, it could’ve been 15 yards when the slack-jawed Kiln native tried calling a back to back timeout…..but the refs didn’t call it.

    Not one

    Hey Cowboy22, remember that pesky coin toss that occured between the INT and the field goal?
    Of course you don’t…it would only serve to highlight the chasm jumping you are doing.

    Cowboy22: Longwell’s career long was many years ago, when he was much younger.

    It’s cool that Vikings fans appreciate what Favre gave them, even after just one year.
    GB fans don’t appreciate what Favre gave them year after year after year, because he left.
    This condition is known as SDS.
    (Small dick syndrome)
    ————————————————
    Are Vikings fans still grateful to Randall Cunningham for ALMOST getting to the Super Bowl. You DO realize that Favre only got 2 more regular season wins and 1 more playoff win than last year without him in Minnesota right? Not to mention you won’t be playing the cupcake schedule you had this year against teams like the Lions (twice), the 49ers, the Rams, the Browns, the Bears, the Panthers, etc.
    2009 was Favre’s last best shot and he blew it. all he has to do is scramble for 5 yards and slide or hit the wide open guy right in front of him and the Vikes have a very doable 47 yarder. And he coughed it up at the most crucial moment like he always does.

    It’s sad to see these Viking fans begging and grovelling for this man to return so that he can break their hearts again. We saw Packer fans doing the same thing for a number of years before Brett colluded with Bevell to leave the Packers and go to the Vikings. (The Jest were just a temporary wayside for him). Isn’t it obvious that the loyalty of his fans means very little to this ego driven man? The billboard was posted six months too early and it will take much more than an appeal to his loyalty to get him back in purple tights.

    Actually, he makes good sense. Why is 54 the limit of Longwell’s range? If the highest you scored on your math test in 1st grade was 83 (doubtful you could score that high), would you tell your parents in 2nd grade that scoring 90 is “out of your range”?

    The FG was outside Longwell’s range, by far. Maybe a 5% of hitting that, at best. Probably a better chance NO blocks it and runs it in for a TD.
    As far as the poster talking about Favre’s turnovers, not one person, including Peterson, disputes that the fumble at the end of the half as they were about to score a TD was 100% Adrian’s fault. Sorry if that doesn’t jive with your Favre hatred.

    Outside of Longwell’s range BY FAR? By far? 2 yards longer than his longest is BY FAR? You’re clueless.
    Do you realize Sebastian Janikowski made a 61 yard field goal this season? Do you know what his previous long was?
    I’ll give you a hint: it was 4 yards shorter than 61. I’ll pause so you can get a calculator….. OK, so Janikowski attempted a field goal you’d say was not in the same zip code as “his range.” And he hit it! Imagine that!
    Bottom line: anyone who wants to downplay the importance of Favre’s interception is deluded. 50 yards, 54 yards, 57 yards. All of them would’ve given the Vikings a chance to win. But Favre waved his magical interception wand and that went away.

    And to answer your question, no. I would not say the “range” is 8-105. I would say there’s no such thing as a range of temperatures for a given day. There’s a record high and a record low. But records are made to be broken. To suggest there’s a range of temperatures is to imply that nothing outside of the range is possible.

    I know for a fact that my only prediction when Favre first signed with the Vikings was simply, “This is not going to end well”. Period.
    That fact that I was right has nothing to do with me seeing the future, no, it has to do with Favre’s playoff history. Go look it up and you’ll see that he has chocked away every opportunity since 2001. At the time I said it was a match made in heaven, a QB that chokes playing for a franchise that always choked. Sure enough, NFC championship game, a FG away from the Superbowl in a game the Vikings dominated on the stat sheet and what does Farve do?

    If the record temperature is 105, does that mean it is impossible for the temp to reach 110? No, just because it hasn’t happened yet, doesn’t mean it can’t. Using your logic, is seems you would you have said 105 was not possible before it happened.
    I would take a 5% chance for the Super Bowl over a 0% chance any day. (And this is all assuming of course, that the only outcomes of that play were an INT or an incompletion, which certainly is not the case.)

    They say Favre’s INTs didn’t give the Saints points while they didn’t give them points. He didn’t give the Vikings any points as a matter of fact all he had to do was to keep them in FG RANGE to atleasst have a chance I don’t recall the Vikings having ANY chance of kicking the game winning FG while the Siants have the ball.

    “People who bring up the INT simply no nothing about football.”
    And you “NO” nothing about football or the proper use of the English language.
    Here’s a hint for you moron: A late throw, across the middle of the field, when one’s team is in field goal range, in the closing seconds of a game, is something even a rookie qb knows ( notice it isn’t no’s or even nose?) not to do.
    Here’s another hint for you: “know nothing”, not no nothing. Where in the world did you get your education?
    As far as the billboard goes, if Jay Tappe of Minneapolis is 13 years old or younger, it’s a cute story. Sadly, he’s more likely than not a middle aged loser with serious issues.
    “BRETT!! PLEASE COME BACK!!! WE CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT YOU!!!!
    Mr Tappe knows this because ESPN tells him so. And as everyone knows, everything that is puked out over the Boob Tube is gospel.
    xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
    Say Mick, when going after someone for the “proper use of the English language” you probably don’t want to start a sentence with “And”. You did it twice. Where in the world did YOU get YOUR education?
    By the way, where were all the complaints when Favre completed the same pass the week before against the Cowboys? I didn’t like it then anymore than the one against the Saints, but I don’t recall the outcry when it worked.

  116. Tompadre says: Feb 5, 2010 7:13 AM

    Wow!
    Who knew so many PFT posters were so well connected or are “NFL Insiders”.
    Cowboy22 stated: “letting him go home during the season on a regular basis”. Cowboy must be working in Viking upper management to have such knowledge, unless of course when referring to “home” he means Favre’s residence in Eden Prarie. Although if that’s the case I’m quite sure they let all of the players leave the facility at the end of the day so they can go “home”.
    Ambrose had this to say: “these people that put up the billboard don’t know this self-centered egomaniac like we do.” I had no idea you had the pleasure of knowing Favre on such a personal level Ambrose. How often did you guys get to hang with each other?
    Finally, based on his comment, it is apparent JimmySmith is actually the Vikings Offensive Coordinator: “Favre changed half of the play calls sent into the huddle.” Jimmy, I’m just surprised you could find so much time to post all of your comments during the season. I guess it is true Favre makes an OCs job that much easier.
    We are all that much more informed because of your insights.
    TFBuck -
    You forgot one. Favre lead the league this year in TD to Int ratio. That’s actually a very big catagory which gives a very good indication of ones performance throughout the year. I’m just saying…

    First off, this is one of the classiest things I’ve seen NFL fans do in a LONG time. It is one thing to go to games and cheer loud. But MN dominated ratings percentages on TV this year and now their fans went out on their own and paid for a billboard spot down in Hattisburg Mississippi. You have to hand it to Vikes fans, some of the best out there.
    It is so easy to tell who doesn’t know squat about football on these boards. They throw in posts like Favre blew the game with his INT. News flash, if he throws it incomplete we are going to overtime. News flash 2, failing to take the lead in a tie game during a 2 minute drill doesn’t automatically mean you lose. The referees still had to give New Orleans the game in OT which Favre wasn’t really a part of.

  118. turk yary says: Feb 5, 2010 8:46 AM

    Some things never change. This was eerily similar to the Pack vs. Giants NFC Championship game. Mr. Ego could’ve run and slid, or dumped a short pass to #87 on the right sideline, setting up a very makeable FG by the most prolific scorer in Green Bay Packers history. Nope, can’t have that! Instead, Mr. Ego throws a pass into coverage to his “go-to” guy, across his body and on the wrong foot.
    Please come back, Brent! Defenses from the NFC North and West, AFC East, and Dallas and New Orleans would LOVE to see you again! Then the Queens fans can get a bigger taste of Packer fans’ pain.
