Minnesota Vikings Carry High Hopes With Favre

Image :

The Minnesota Vikings expectations for the 09′ season went up dramatically with the potential of landing QB legend Brett Favre, which they did. It was a circus like atmosphere the entire off season with “Will he return? Won’t he return?” and so on. All that season to be a distance memory because the Vikings are off to a fast start with Favre playing very well. If Favre can stay healthy for all 16 regular season games and the playoffs the Vikings have a great chance at becoming Super Bowl champions. Favre had a good season with the New York Jets in 08′ – but because of shoulder injury the New York Jets weren’t contenders at the end.

Favre isn’t the only man who needs to play his best for the Vikings to win the Super Bowl, Adrian Peterson will have to have a career year and play like a man possessed. Peterson’s role will be important as the season moves into the colder months, granted the Vikings play in a dome but traveling to Green Bay and Chicago in the winter isn’t fun.

The Vikings franchise hasn’t had this good of a team since the 98′ Vikings went 15-1 with WR Randy Moss, QB Randall Cunningham, RB Robert Smith, WR Chris Carter, and DT John Randle. The team was upset in the NFC Championship game to the Atlanta Falcons in overtime. Hopefully, the 09′ Vikings can avoid such a fate.

While the rest of the Vikings team is very good, the team will only go as Favre stays healthy. Tarvaris Jackson and Sage Rosenfels are good quarterbacks, but are they Super Bowl worthy? Many wouldn’t think so. Anything less then a Super Bowl appearance for the Vikings would be considered a disappointment – Favre isn’t a young man anymore but his sole reason to comeback and play was to win another Super Bowl.
