Tarvaris says Vikings are all on the same page about Favre

Tarvaris Jackson won’t know for another three months or so if he’ll be backing up Brett Favre again this year. But he says he has a pretty good idea.

“I think everybody has that feeling,” Jackson said today, per Tom Pelissero of 1500ESPN.com. “I think everybody’s pretty much on the same page.”

Without coming right out and saying so, Jackson seemed to be hinting that the whole team expects Favre back in 2010. Jackson also said he and Favre have traded text messages a few times this offseason, but that he doesn’t have any expectations about when Favre will make a decision.

“I don’t know,” Jackson said. “We’re just going to try to get better right now and worry about ourselves.”

    That must be the page where it says Favre’s last pass of his career will be an interception.

    Favre is a class act and you can tell the Vikings players really love him. Just like you can tell his old Packer teammates did from all those warm embraces after each time Favre beat them last season.

  6. JesusIsMySavior says: May 19, 2010 4:03 PM

    Brett won’t abandon his team, he is a good Christian man who knows the value of loyalty. Perhaps a drug-abusing atheist like Jackson would know only treachery and betrayal, but Brett is too pure a soul for that sort of childishness. Jackson has the Devil in him, that’s why he suspects Brett’s intentions and tries to sow the seeds of doubt in his teammates. A little birdy (or was it Jesus?) put a little whisper in my ear that Jackson prefers the company of men over women. No wonder he wants Favre gone, such an example of pure masculinity would no doubt threaten to expose Jackson’s many lies and sins.

    Fan of Football –
    Very very true. I guess we can put Darren Sharper on that list of class acts… after the Saints took out the Vikes…nice embrace for Pharv and Sharper at the end of the game after Hartley’s kick went square and true eliminating the Queens.

  11. MuskyHunter2542 says: May 19, 2010 4:13 PM

    Paul Allen – “Brett Favre goes back to pass he pumps, now he fires over the middle. Intercepted, I can’t believe what I’m seeing right now. It was intercepted by Tracy Porter, near side to the 40 and John Sullivan runs him down at the 47 yard line. You’ve got to be kidding me, I can’t believe what I just saw.”
    Other announcer – “Looking at that play he should have just held on to it Paul, he should’ve. He could’ve easily have gotten 5 or 6 yards if he would have just pulled that thing down and dove foreward.”
    Paul Allen – “But why do you even ponder passing, I mean you can take a knee and try a 56 yard field goal. This is not Detroit man! This is the Super Bowl.”

  12. EverybodyGotAIDS says: May 19, 2010 4:15 PM

    Seriously? Nobody in the media managed to intercept any of those messages?

  14. ItsallaboutBrett says: May 19, 2010 4:18 PM

    I agree with shadowman 1443. Brett is completely the man in charge of this franchise. This is why Vikings fans are so desperate to have Brett back. Tavarius has no desire to be “the man”. He is totally content to sit on the sidelines making millions holding the clipboard. Most guys in his position would have the driving ambition to be the starter or leader of this team, not Tavarius. Vikings fans had better hope Brett comes back because they have no other viable options.

  21. JimmySmith says: May 19, 2010 4:25 PM

    Is this the same T Jack Off that Childress has thrown under the bus, not once but twice?
    Is this the same Jackson that Childress was singing his praises last year, telling everyone that he was really taking command in the huddle? (as if that attribute is somehow related to the QB’s success, as in, ya he is the pro bowl because he really knows how to call a play)
    Any head coach is smart to try to build confidence in their QB’s but Childress has gone out of his way to destroy T Jack Off’s. Saying one minute that the Vikings were going forward, running to the airport the next minute to personally pick up the NFL’s leader in INT’s.
    And with BrINT running the show, telling the organization on which players to sign, what plays to call and whether the head coach is even allow to substitute players, its good to know that T Jack Off is on the same page. That has got to warm the hearts of all the Viking fans to know that.

    Favre runs the team….Vikes fans run their mouths like they already know his decision…deep down they are scared…I would be too. If the Pack werent sure if ARodg was coming back, we’d have Matt Flynn to fall back on. GULP.
    Times are tough and scary in Minny…who’s the QB next year? Where are we doing to play in 2 years?
    Vikes suck…what a joke and pitiful excuse for a franchise.
    But…I still love you Vikes….keep the rivalry coming…(hopefully).

  25. Pervy Harvin says: May 19, 2010 4:28 PM

    JesusIsMySavior- If Jackson is a so called drug abusing atheist does that make you a pork sword addicted douchebag???
    In a similar story,Matt Flynn and Aaron Rodgers have been bonding nicely in the off season. They hold bi weekly snorkeling sessions over at Coach Mccupcake’s house.

  26. radioboy20010 says: May 19, 2010 4:38 PM

    Gee…that Brent Gump…he’s the second coming of Jesus, isn’t he?
    1)Alcohol and Vicodin abuser.
    2)Lies to get own way.
    3)Isn’t false pride an anti-Christian value?
    I see there’s still a few fools who swallow Brent’s crap as legit. Happy eating.
    A longtime employee of a firm decides he no longer wants to come to work on Monday or Tuesdays anymore. He’s already the highest paid employee, but says that the organization he works for isn’t smart enough to put the best people around him. He tells the boss (for the fourth time) that he hasn’t made up his mind about coming into work. So the boss promotes his next in line, a solid, up and coming hardworking employee to take the star’s job. The star shows up for work on Wednesday, then throws a fit that he isn’t put directly back into his old position. The boss finally gets fed up with his shenanigans and sends him to another company. The employee is furious and calls the companies competitors and tells trade secrets. Then after a year of underperforming, he tells the boss of the other organization that he’s quitting. Then after a couple of months, shows up at another competitor wanting revenge on the original company.
    Sounds like someone you would want around, doesn’t it? How long would you last at your job pulling this crap?

    it’s funny, as a vikings fan, to pop into the occasional favre story. they’ve become a full-on circle jerk for haters of the vikings, a haven for unintelligible commenting and dinks with no credibility (“the vikings totally suck!” oh. they do? hmm, clearly you have your finger to the pulse of the NFL.).
    the point: the rest of you care much more about whether favre returns than vikes fans do. and i mean we REALLY don’t care. we’re not paying attention. we have a top-flight defense, a solid offense full of weapons, and home run threats in the special teams game. we’re better with him, no doubt, but we don’t fear life without him.
    i am glad, though, that you’ve all found a place to get your first handjobs, even if it means giving it to yourself and pretending it’s Jimmy Smith.

    Being a die-hard Lions fan (super embarrassed now), I’ve never LIKED Favre at all. I’ve borderline hated him actually, but have always respected him. It seems now at the perpetual end of his career I really dig this guy and so do all of his teammates it seems.

  42. soberjoe says: May 19, 2010 6:41 PM

    … and that being said, I think Suh will give him another week or so to wonder if he should return. Could be a good last hit to take lol

    All those role players you got are nice indeed, but come on – is Sage or TJack taking this team anywhere over your hated rival across the river?

    its soooo funny that people keep blaming all this attention on favre. when was the last time he sought the spotlight? lets see, so far this offseason we have heard about the pics of his injuries after NFC championship game, the fact that his ankle hasn’t properly healed/surgery news and the retire/not retire story. the photos were posted by his agent, bus cook and the other stories have been broken either by him or the vikings organization. at no point other then immediately following the season did we find favre even making a statement when he said he had not decided whether he would play again next year and that the vikings had been good in giving him the time to do so. other then that every story has been either from a member of the vikings organization or a media whore rumor monger. yes, he went on the leno show, but i thought that was actually kinda classy and humility showing that he has been a waffler just like leno was with his show. what is everyone’s problem? none of this attention is manufactured by favre, it is absolutely %100 the media that has preyed upon his person. why? because he is one of the greatest QBs ever, is still playing at an MVP level at 40, has the chance to go to another super bowl this year and overall is a charismatic fun guy that is hard not to love…even for those who claim they hate him. i know, ive been a vikings fan for 25 years and even with how much i hated him as a packer i still found myself rooting for the guy when it didn’t involve the vikings.

  47. MooninLambeau says: May 19, 2010 7:15 PM

    Suck it Green Bay.
    You are cursed from now on- in 60 years you will look back and regret the releasing of Favre. Just like it took the Red Sox decades to reverse the Curse of Babe Ruth…..

    its true that packer and bear fans hope that favre comes back much more than viking fans. This gives them the excuse to ignore all the other good things about the vikes.
    We won the division with Tjack you idiots, the defense has just gotten better, the offense has just gotten better, and the special teams has stayed about the same. The difference is the rest of the division has gotten weaker, with the exception of detroit. Chicago is crap, queen gay is garbage as usual, the vikes will win the division again this year and hopefully push all the way.

    @NFC North Resident:
    i live and work in minneapolis, so i think i might’ve just conditioned myself to avoid listening to the obsessed. amongst the many i speak with regarding the vikes, at least, the conversation is about the team and not that other guy (whom we liked very much in purple and gold, i cannot deny). most prefer to focus on what ELSE we can do to stay ahead of the green bays of the world, which is never easy in itself.

Charlies knows in his heart of hearts that this time will be no different, he will run up to kick it and at the last minute, Lucy pulls it back. That is the Viking fan experience, you just know no matter how well the season was going, no matter how many yards you outgained the Saints, it wasn’t going to end well and guesss what, it was your beloved Saint and Savior, BrINT throwing away the game. Would you feel better if I called him Brent? or Burt? Doesn’t matter because it still isn’t going to end well but you knew that already, didn’t you?

    Jimmy Smith,
    The Lucy and Charlie Brown analogy is pretty funny. I wonder what Farve must be thinking having the same thing happen 2 NFC Championships in a row. Like “groundhog day”. Either way, all have to admit that he is one heck of a QB, and the odds of that happening again are off the charts. So, I am looking for nothing short of the promised land this year.

  61. HowIronic says: May 19, 2010 11:55 PM

    Well yeah, Favre through a season-ending interception.
    So did the Cardinals QB Kurt Warner, and the Colts QB Peyton Manning.
    And let’s not forget about the Packers punter Aaron Rodgers, whose kick was returned for a touchdown to end the Packers season in the very first round of the playoffs (Well, kind of playoffs. The actual playoff teams like the Vikings didn’t have to play that round – It was a given that they’d have won.)

    I would find it hard to challenge any Viking fan on their assessment regarding homosexual love given their depth of experience and life history. Any team that wears bright purple and yellow, has a cross dressing head coach and the team mascot wears braids should not be shocked to find a sizeable majority of their fan base buying gerbils by the dozen at the local pet store.

  64. sand0 says: May 20, 2010 7:50 AM

    Despite how delusional our rivals are, Vikings are doing fine right now. Last season didn’t have a happy ending but I really appreciate how we got Brett and then destroyed the Packers twice with him. That will sting forever with those dorks over there. And embarrassing Dallas was sweet too, especially after all the trash their players were talking before, during, and after the game.
    This season looks to be another really fun one. With Brett back, we have the same team that dominated last season.
