From the “I absolutely, positively can not believe that this crap is happening” file, we get news from Chip Scoggins of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune that Vikings’ quarterback Brett Favre. . .he who was ruled out on Saturday. . .has been upgraded to “questionable” for this evening’s game against the Chicago Bears, and will throw a couple of hours before game time to see if he can start tonight.
I can’t believe this. . .after getting Joe Webb ready all week for his first-ever NFL start, the Vikings are actually going to try to roll Brett Favre out there in a meaningless game for a team that he’s not going to be quarterbacking next year on a surface that may or may not be safe when he’s clearly not 100%.
Absolutely unbelievable. I know that I, for one, will be livid if the Vikings’ first snap of tonight’s game is taken by Brett Favre and not by Joe Webb.
