Quarterback No. 4

Brett Favre (2009 - 2010)

In the middle of Brett Favre winning multiple MVPs as a member of the Green Bay Packers, few would have ever predicted that he would end his NFL career in a Vikings uniform. But that is exactly what happened.

After a random season with the New York Jets in 2008, Minnesota convinced Favre to join them in 2009 with the hope that he could be someone that helps them get over the hump and back into a Super Bowl for the first time since 1976.

At first, it seemed like the Vikings' wish was going to come true. Favre and Minnesota won their first six games in 2009 and they wound up finishing with a 12-4 record during the regular season. Despite turning 40 midway through the Vikings' schedule, Favre still managed to put up monster numbers in 2009, as he threw for 4,202 yards and 33 touchdowns in 16 games.

Of course, Minnesota's journey to the Super Bowl in 2009 was cut short by the hated New Orleans Saints. But the magic Favre was able to create in 2009 in a Vikings uniform is something that the team's fan base will never forget, regardless of the outcome.

The 2010 campaign is probably one that Favre wished he never participated in. The veteran quarterback was still banged up from the previous season and he was unable to perform for Minnesota at the same level that he did in 2009.

Favre appeared in 13 games in 2010, finishing with a passer rating of just 69.9, the lowest for a single season of his entire career in the NFL as a starting quarterback.
