Chilly-Snark


I’m sure Brad Childress knows exactly the kind of chaos he creates when he says stuff like this (at the same press conference where he announced Percy Harvin‘s health issues to an anxiety-ridden public):

We haven’t [talked about Favre].  It doesn’t mean we won’t. We talk about everything from what’s going on in the United States on the front page today. … We talk about everything. So, yeah, I’m sure we’ll talk about that.

What’s Chilly think about swine flu?  The situation in Pakistan?  Lindsay Lohan‘s dramatic weight loss?  I’m glad Chill is at least attempting to joke about the whole thing – it shows he isn’t too exasperated yet.

I’m sure certain nitwits will attempt to read meaning into Chilly’s obviously sarcastic remarks.  Oh, right on schedule.

    Brett Favre is coming to Minnesota!!  New Brett Favre Rumors! To Vikings? 5/01/09  – http://digg.com/d1q6iM

  • Mike

    Strange comments by Chilly!  He acts like the thought of Favre just occured to him.

    Vikings have no real QB.  Favre is one of all time greats.  Favre has been saying for about a year he wants to play for the Vikings.

    Chilly’s response: OH, What a surprise, I will have to think about that.  

    What do they have to think about.  Bevell knows everything about him.  Get on a plane and see if his arm is OK.

    Don’t just sit there and talk about talking about it.

  • Mike

    I will give Chilly credit for one thing.  At least he isn’t taking Bus Cook’s word that Favre is done.

  • Mike

    Why did Childress decline to directly answer a question on Friday about whether he’s spoken recently with Favre?

    I would rather see Vikings have 10 players line up on offense than see Bret Farve in purple.

  • All Day 28

    Hey Dave would you jump on Favre’s nut sac if he brought a ring or two to the Vikings ???? Perhaps a RING might make you swallow that comment

  • Mike

    Dave is obviously not a true Vikings fan.  No true Vikings would want them to line up only ten men.  No true Vikings fan would not want to add Favre to the ten men.  Dave must hate Favre so much he would rather see the Vikings lose.

  • All Day 28

    You know Mike, all great Vikings fans cant have an open mind like us. Check it out, last year Favre with the Jets basically carried that team on his back. His first 8 games were amazing, his last 8 we all know what happend. Alot of ppl dont know or realize that Favre shoulder was messed up those last 8 games. The jets have thomas jones, and there wr’s were descent at best, Coles is alright and Cotchery is a burner. Thomas Jones, nice season, over a 1,ooo yards and 13 tds, in which the year before he didnt score a single td, not one. The last 4 games Jones came no where near sniffing 100 yards for the Jets. Which means they were throwing it on the back of Brett too pull some rabbit out of his ass with no running game. He did throw alot of Int’s last year, but hey when your trying to win with what he was surrounded with then you can see why. We all know Brett leads the NFL in int’s, he is a risk taker and he always has been and always will be, but that is the beauty and mystic of Favre. So bring him to the Vikings, and lets compare Vikings to Jets. Check 1 Offensive Line, I might be going out on a limb here but imma give the edge to the Vikings on Oline, lol. Check 2, Running game. Jets, descent with Thomas Jones and Leon Washington. Vikings mmmmmm How about the best back in the leauge, and a back up that could be a starter on alot of other NFL rosters, Running game edge, Vikings. Check 3, Wide Recivers and Tight ends, Jets with Cotchery, Coles, and Kellers pretty descent, Vikings with Berrian, Wade, Rice, Shiancoe, Descent, Now add Percy Harvin and thats scary, but im basing this off last year so edge to Jets. Check 4, Defense. Jets ummm yea, Vikings D we all know our D is stout and we missed EJ desperatly last year. Defense hands down Vikings. Check 5 offensive system, Jets, Brett had alot of new stuff to learn, which yes did hinder him a bit. Vikings, West Coast Offense, Brett already knows this Offense. Offensive Scheme, Vikings win on that. Play in a dome, yes Brett love the cold weather, but he is getting older, Dome get the check. Putting the game on Peterson’s shoulders, and letting Brett do wonders with the play action and the West Coast Offense with short dink and dunk pass’es to, Wade, Harvin, Rice, Berrian, Shiancoe, yall know Brett loves the tight end position. This offense is taylor made for Brett’s skill level. And dont give me that he is old and cant play at this level anymore. Umm yes he can and he proved that the first 8 games with the Jets before he got hurt. He wont be asked to put the team on his shoulders in Minnesota and chunk the ball 30 to 40 times a game. He will simply be brought in for his experience and love of the game, not to mention all the knowledge that he has. Can he run faster than Tjoke or Sage, prolly not, is he a smarter QB and has 1 million times more experience then them Yes YES he does. Does he wanna come back and stick it to Ted Thompson twice a year and get another RING, Yes he does. This wont hurt any kind of legacy that he already has. So everyone that keeps bitching that they are tired of hearing about Brett need to just suck it up and realize he will be wearing a Purple # 4 jersey this upcomming season and if your tired of it then quit threading and posting about it. Because when it happens yall all know you will be watching Brett return to Greenbay in Purple

    Fortunately, most Minnesotans want Favre here.  We will just have to respect the dissenters opinions.  But I am sick of the simple statements like Favre is a done, when these people have no idea what the condition of his arm is.  The Vikings should at least find out and go from there.  But if Favre can’t help us, I am very pessimistic about next season.  Almost everyone around the country give the Vikings little chance to win the super bowl, even though, besides QB, they are probably the best team.  Trouble is QB is the most important position.

  • Mike

    Green Bay coach Mike McCarthy says “If Brett wants to play football, he should play football.”  Does this mean Ted Thompson is not going to try to bribe him with another marketing deal?  Or does it mean they don’t think they can bribe him?  Are they trying to be gracious so this doesn’t turn into a revenge rivalry?  Or are they going to offer him the bribe but say it is just a marketing deal and just say do what you want?  I hope it means they won’t offer him a marketing deal because I would rather he play for the Vikings.

    All day and Mike,  I’ve been a Vikings fan for so many years, yet at first i questioned getting Favre as our QB, and i admit saying that he was finally washed up, based on his second half performance with the Jets, but also, because of his arm injury. Now, with  circumstances the way they panned out, and our failure to pick up a proven veteran QB, i believe Favre would be a great leader for the Vikings, as our starting QB. We definitely have a talent-laiden football team on both sides of the ball, but i agree that our missing link is a team leader at QB, without a proven QB, we risk being just a mediocre team, but Favre definitely gives us a boost and a better chance at winning it all. I can understand some Vikings fans being skeptical about bringing Favre here, i certainly was a few months ago, but things have changed since then, and i believe it would be a big lift for the whole team if Favre can become our QB, but he better be healed and in shape to play, or it could turn into another New York Jets fiasco for our Vikings.

  • All Day 28

    Bernie i agree with y ou that if we do get Favre that we do need to make sure he is all healed up. I’d rather go into the season with Sage or Tjack being completly healthy then Favre to come in still injured. Glad that you are stepping up and admitting you are saying he was done and now reversing your stance on that. You do see what he could bring too this team is alot more than what people think. The Metrodome will be sold out for ever game, and it will definatly help keep the team in Minnesota where it belongs if Favre came with all the Media and revenue. Not to mention the whole body of team that we already have around him just fits. Dominant running game, Great Oline, descent wide outs, not to mention lets see what Percy brings, im very high on Mr. Harvin and what he can bring to us. Our Killer Defense, and a Dome which doesnt get cold and effect Farve due to his age. All the piece’s are in line for a huge run and the Superbowl, and add Farve to the mix without him having to play captain hero and do it all by himself, it would truly be a thing of beauty, Plus one up the packers

    well boys, you know that i’ve been backin sage abou as well as anybody. no i’m not a viking fan, i’m a sage rosenfels fan cause he’s from iowa and i’ve seen him play. i know he can. but at the same time, i agree with your assessments of the vikings talent level and what farve could add to it. i’ve said that before too. weel, the puzzle is just missing one piece now, and personally i think you guys will get him. my uncle says,” hell ya, what do we got to loose at this point”? and he hates farve, oh man does he ever hate farve. and my uncle that lives in wisc. he is just sick, cause he says he knew this day would come, he just knew it. these guys are brothers, but they won’t talk to each other about this cause when it happens there will be a civil war in my family. now you know why i like the cowboys? well good luck to ya all, and you guys are definitely right about one thing…..he’ll put asses in the seats, a full dome puts money in zigs’ pockets and keeps the vikings in minnesota…..a trophy would go a long way too….think ziggy would want that????????????

  • All Day 28

    Dallasdave fan, a trophy would be beautiful, you know we dont have one of those. Been to the Dance 4 times and havent been able to pull a Ring out of our Ass’es yet. So yes if Favre brings us a trophy im sure all is well and all the Vikings fans that say that they would disown us for getting Favre would prolly back off that stance. Thats why were here is to get a ring and we all know our best chance this season is if Brett brings it back for a year or two. Like you said what do we have to lose, we have all the right piece’s in place besides a QB. Peterson is comming into his 3rd year and is ready to tear it up. I keep dreaming every night of seeing Farve in purple and hoisting up the Superbowl trophy. Dreams do come true

  • http://landryhat davedallasfan

    my uncle the ever seeing swame viking fan says his inside info from wherever?? he says a good scratch man never indulges his sources, anyways……he says it’s a done deal and the vikings will bring him in after the start of camp. my uncle has never been wrong on his so called “hunches” based on inside info he gets. never.

  • http://landryhat davedallasfan

    did i mean devuldge???? i don’t know, my uncle’s got me so confused……..woooo

  • All Day 28

    dave your uncle better not let us down on this. Its tough being a Viking fan and living just North of Houston, but if its true and it happens I will wish your organization which i dislike dearly and will never have anything to do with untill Jerry is gone the best in this upcomming season

  • Favre4ever

    I am a resident of Appleton, WI.  This is where all NFL teams stay when they play the Packers.  I used to love the Packers with all of my being when Favre played for them.  I also used to hate your Vikings from the depths of my former Green & Gold soul.  However, since that loser Ted Thompson exiled Favre to the Jets, I’ve wanted Favre to strip the Packers and TT bare-naked with some pin-point TD throws.  I’ve always believed his best chance at sticking it to TT and the Packers was with the Vikings.  If Brett signs with the Vikings, I’m ordering a #4 Favre Minnesota Vikings jersey from NFL.com.  I’m serious!  Go Vikings!

  • Favre4ever

    I’ve got something else to add.
    I don’t know Brett Favre personally, but I DO KNOW BRETT FAVRE!
    He hates Ted Thompson with a passion!
    However, with that little side note  in the back of our minds, I do know a little something else about Brett Favre. 
    If he plays for the Vikings he will go you EVERYTHING, and I mean EVERYTHING he’s got!

    Now start ordering your Super Bowl tickets and go tell all your friends that:

    BRETT FAVRE IS COMING!
