They already have the 2nd best running back in the league... Gerhart will be ok, but nothing special.

Yeah, but given time, I think Gerhart can jump from being the 2nd best running back in the league to first. Give him like 2 preseason games.

Rub some $100s on that ankle and see if it helps it heal faster! :)

i really wouldn't be surprised if favre took it to another level and intended to skip the first part of the regular season also before coming back.

think about it - he knows he's pure gold for about 3 months and then he fades.  if he can count on the vikings to go at least .500 thru the first 4 or 6 games of the season, he can jump right back in and save himself for the meaningful games (think modern-day celtics).  it also gives his ankle more time to heal.  and the vikings don't have to give him a raise - he'll get his 13 million for playing in 10 regular season games and the postseason.

in the meantime, his ankle and whole body get more time to heal.  home field advantage doesn't matter a great deal to brett who made his name owning cold weather, and with the defense and run game the vikes have they can win on the road if they have a brett favre who is still playing young in january

he's already proven that he doesn't give a flip about putting the organization or the other QBs on the roster in a bind from his actions since about 2007

Too Bad I'm not in Java's Fantasy League. I already know who he would pick for his QB and RB.

Manlove A: Tim Tebow
Manlove B: Toby Gerhart.

   Yeah, but... on Sapp's radio chat posted in another link where he was praising Gerald McCoy, he also responded to a few Brett Favre questions. Said he thought the wear and tear of last season on Favre's body would put him into retirement this year. Sapp also noted how Favre really liked Tarvaris Jackson as a QB. Who knows, Favre may have taught him a few things.
    When he was with the Packers and they drafted Aaron Rodgers, Favre said it wasn't his job to teach Rodgers. I remember that comment kinda surprised me at the time...

If Favre can pull that off, he would be on roger clemens level...
