07:56 AM ET 09.20 | At 0-2, are the Vikings more likely to make a move? [Perhaps] they'll add the [6-foot-5 Vincent] Jackson to the group. Vikings officials have been in discussions about whether to pursue the embattled but talented San Diego Chargers receiver as soon as Sunday evening. The Vikings have been at the center of the Jackson rumor mill the past few weeks, and Sunday's performance might prove to be the tipping point.

They need more than that.

They need the QB to stop turning the ball over.



Wait... we're talking about him - nevermind.

By the time they play the Cowboys they both could be looking for their first wins of the season. OUCH!

Jackson isn"t all that good ether. They should not have gotten rid of Sage. Dumb ****.

Maybe Favre just sucks at this point?

Sorry, my bad, I did. 2 more times means he'll make another Wrangler commercial.

Favre likes the Wrangler commercials. Harder to tell when an INT is thrown when no one is dressed alike.

On a side note, these so called "experts" on ESPN, NFL Network, etc. all say that Favre has no chemistry with his receivers but each say that him not being at training camp has nothing to do with his lack of chemistry with his receivers. No I am no expert but dont you think the missed time in training camp is actually hurting Favre's so called chemistry with his receivers?

Not necessarily. You can have 6 weeks of training camp and still look as crappy as the Cowboys.

Of course it is. Apparently the Vikings front office is oblivious to this as well.

In times of crisis, he goes with what he knows. And what he knows is killing seasons.

Favre hates training camp and does everything possible to get out of them. If he has to "retire", he will.

The Vikes front office earns no points for encouraging his behavior.

Well, the Viking players begged him to come back, and who is Favre to say no?

Remember... Favre's doing this for the guys in the locker room. That $16M+ salary? That's just frosting on the cake.
