The Favre Effect

Brett Favre signed a contract with the Minnesota Vikings reportedly worth $25 million for 2 years……$25 million….you may ask why so much for Brett Favre, he’s going to be decent but he probably won’t have league leading numbers…he will bring  veteran leadership to a very good team…..but he will also probably throw many unnecessary int’s…..he will provide (sorely lacking) stability at a position for the Vikings organization…..but at the same time he is crushing the spirit of the two backup QB’s……so with Brett Favre it’s give and take….but you may still be saying to yourself $25 million……well let’s brake it down….Brett Favre jersey’s are already hot sellers in Minnesota….they will sell in other parts of the country…including Green Bay, Favre has a cult following in the G. Bay…..Vikings paraphernalia is going to get an extra added boost….radio &  tv advertising for the Viking organization is going to get a boost…….ticket sales will see a spike….that means more revenue for the home games…parking….team shops…food & beverage….if  Minnesota is smart they will market “Favre Friesduring home games….and these are just home games, throw in road games and somebody is making a pretty penny….so now ask yourself …..is that why Brett Favre is worth $25 million??…..

Oh the money feels so good to me!

Oh the money feels so good to me!

What Tavaris Jackson must be thinking……..

Ain't this bout a ...

Ain't this bout a ...

 

These are thoughts flowing through the mind of  Tavaris Jackson……….

                   Isn’t Brett Favre like 50 years old……I wanna throw the ball to Percy Harvin……I should eat more Wheaties….that dude threw 22 int’s last season, I only threw 2…….my deep ball is better than his…..Favre was sacked 30 times last season….. my QB rating was higher than his (98.4 to 80.1)…….I ain’t holding no clipboard…..anyone got Chad Pennington’s phone number, I need some advice on how to handle this…….maybe the 49er’s would be interested in me…..I ain’t running no wildcat  formation B.S either!!
