As one person close to the Vikings said the other day, "If you acquired him, you wouldn't know if he would help you or hurt you."

I think you maybe need to raise the bar a little bit.

I think all of the other columnists have already made it around Sid's major obstacle that the Jet's can't trade Favre to the Vikes without giving up top draft picks, which wouldn't make sense. It works like this - Favre announces his retirement, the Jet's move on and draft a QB like Green Bay did, the Jets release Favre to free up the cap space and the Vikes pick him up as a Free Agent. I sometimes feel like Sid's salary should go to those posting comments correcting his idiotic statements. I don't necessarily think that Favre is a great QB at this point, but he's a heck of a lot better than Tjump No Pass.

"As one person close to the Vikings said the other day, "If you acquired him, you wouldn't know if he would help you or hurt you.""--Because what they have is SO much better. Maybe instead of finding new players, they need to find new people close to them.

I agree with dshrute. Close minded and ignorant reporters are entirely too visible at the Tribune. Get rid of Sid and get rid of Souhan. Really look at some of the ignorant and incorrect statements these too have made through the years. I get sick of hearing the cuts they make at the Strib an continually see these two making a living out of ridiculous and inane comments. Good luck to both of you I just hope it is not at the Star Trib.

Where I agree that Trent Tucker is well worthy of getting in the Gophs HOF, they need to get Randy Breuer in as well.
