Vikings Mix in Some Wildcat at Minicamp

The Star-Trib’s Judd Zulgad giddily reports that the Vikings have been mixing some Wildcat plays in with the rest of the stuff they’re working on at minicamp:

On Saturday, the Vikings experimented with using the “Wildcat” offense, lining up [Percy] Harvin at quarterback at times.  Running back Chester Taylor and wide receiver Darius Reynaud also are getting looks in a formation that became popular last season around the NFL after the Miami Dolphins started to use it.

Harvin has been put forth by some as an ideal Wildcat player, a guy who can line up at multiple positions and has the moves to make tacklers miss in the open field.  And, as Zulgad points out, having to deal with Adrian Peterson in the unconventional offense could create “nightmares” for defensive coordinators.  My only question is:  has anyone run this Wildcat stuff by Brett Favre yet?  What happens if he doesn’t like it?  We know how sensitive he is.  He might even decide not to come back, if he finds out he doesn’t get to be quarterback on every play.
