What I Wrote August 18th
“Yes, the Vikings are a better football team with Favre, but principally because their QB situation was woeful pre-Favre, arguably the worst in the NFL. At this point in his never-ending career, he’s not even an average NFL QB. I predict he will come in and win a game or two with his noble gunslinging, and then he’ll lose an easily-winnable game or two by throwing a stupid interception that rookie QBs are taught not to throw. And if the Vikings make the playoffs–it says here they probably won’t–he’ll break the hearts of Viking fans with some stupid play at an inopportune moment.”
Credit where it’s due: he had a much better season than I–or anyone, pretty much–thought he would…but two dumb interceptions today, including “one stupid play at an inopportune moment”, and the Vikings are going home instead of to Miami.
Doubt me in the future at your own risk…
