So Bret Favre signs with the Vikings a couple of weeks after saying that he wouldn't. Showed up a practice and all. Brett Favre ready to go for Minnesota Vikings -- chicagotribune.com

So, how can you have team spirit for your team if the team members go back and forth between competitors? Bret was defining for the Packers. The Vikings are their natural rival. It just doesn't seem right.

Yep. That sort of thing can put a team in quite a pickle...

Another sign of the Apocalypse.

Maybe the Vikings will take Michael Vick next year and change their name to the Vickings.

Watched Favre in Wisconsin since after he replaced Majkowski. It was a great run, but...

Next thing you know he'll be trying out for the Cubs like his basketball colleague who also found it hard to give it up. So sad exciting for you Mn fans!

...but managed to miss all/most of pre-season camp. That ought to make him popular with the gang, especially the 3rd and 4th string QB...

I am just relieved that Mr. Vick is on the other side of the state, in Philly.

Awesome Favre is back!

Steelers and Vikings in the bowl. Steelers 27 Vikings 10


Besides this is the new NFL with free agency. Its not like the Vikings had a QB. With Favre they got a legitimate shot.

Well, looks like Minnesota Viking fans have forgotten about Jesus for the rest of the season, while Sage Rosenfels, Tarvaris Jackson, Packers and their fans have been invoking both names in the same sentence over their oatmeal this morning . Think I might go down to Eden Prairie today and maybe catch a glimpse.

I would have retired for good after my GB days were done. But he is like so many people in sports, just can't give it up.

As far as bad for team spirit, I read where several Viking players wanted him to sign. And management was certainly after him so it's not all his fault. But if he falls on his face, I'm sure many on the team will be questioning the hire.
