My theories to Favre coming back

I feel that he was coming back all along.  You don't play that well, and get that close not to come back and do it again.  All the haters say he's old, yeah but if he plays like that I'd take him even if he were 60.  That he's a selfish/attention hore. (misspelling intentional)  Need I remind you that this is almost all the media.  They blow things way out of proportion and creates non stories.  Once in a while I think he thinks it's funny to give the media a false lead and watch everyone freak out about it.  I think he really thinks the media is annoying, kinda like a guy or a girl who is too clingy and won't stop calling you.  JUST LEAVE ME ALONE!  Anyway, you already got the first idea, that he was so close, played so well, battled, and lead the team pretty much BY HIMSELF to that heartbreaker.  (Turnovers, Cheapshots/non calls, Dumb Penalties-too many men, Phantom Penalties, the forces really conspired against us, but he still nearly overcame them) 

The Second idea, this I don't think a lot of people really think about too much.  Maybe they do, but I don't see anyone say anything about it.  EVEN NUMBERS.  497 TD passes.  Come on, he wants 500, halfway to 1000, and maybe he'll end his career with 100 more tds thrown than the current #2 Marino.  69361 Passing Yards.  You know he wants 70000.  No one's ever passed for 70000 passing yards.  He would be the first to that plateau.  You don't stop at 69000 yards.  And besides Marino is in the 60000 yard category too.  285 consecutive starts.  You know he wants 300.  Another injury free season and he is there.  He's done it for 19 years, I think he can do it for one more.  Even on his death bed, he would still play to keep that streak alive.  (Honestly if we wrap up a 1st round bye I can see him ending his streak in week 17, cuz he's retiring next year regardless of what happens this season anyway, and then he's at an even 300.  301, who cares?  Besides, resting in week 17 would give his body extra time to heal for the playoffs)  19 years.  How bout 20?  20 is a nice even number, 2 full decades, awesome.  181 wins, he wants 200, but that would take 2 years, and isn't guaranteed anyway.  Besides, the Colts will never be bad, Peyton would break that anyway, that would be a waste of time.  190 something is good enough there, he's fine with being number 2 in that one.  Peyton could break some, but I doubt he'll break all, and I personally don't think he'll break half.  Why?  I think if Peyton gets high lowed like that, he's DONE!  He's an ironman, but I don't think anyone other than Favre could come back from that, in the same game, and play well no less!  (Don't talk about the int, look at everything b4 that, and besides it shoulda never came to that)

Side note, why do I think he retired all those times?  The 1st time I think he actually didn't know, the Packers screwed him over, and he was disheartened to the point where he thought about, along with all the people saying he was too old and should quit, obviously not!  The 2nd time (when he "retired" from the Jets) he didn't ever wanna be on the Jets, he always wanted to be on the Vikings after Green Bay let him go, but they wouldn't let him, so he had to pull his whole act, and then he had to wait another year and do that to the Jets because of the clause they had agreed to in picking him up from Green Bay.  (can't trade him to MN)  NOTICE HOW SINCE HE CAME TO MN HE HASN'T ACTUALLY PUBLICALLY SAID ANYTHING ABOUT RETIRING, THE MEDIA KEEPS SPECULATING TRYING TO MAKE THINGS OUT OF NOTHING BECAUSE OF THE PAST.  Once in a while they "get" or "hear" a "text from favre."  I call the media's BS and I raise them what I feel is true, posted above in this blog.

Vikings/Saints=The real Superbowl

I just really don't think that the Colts this year as good as they were in other years.  Yes I know they coulda probably went undefeated.  The thing with the Colts is that they don't lose any games that they are not supposed to.  I don't believe (and I could be wrong, I have been before, this is just my opinion) that the Colts highest level is higher than that of either the Saints or the Vikings.  Now, several factors of course play into it.  Injuries, Type of field surface (grass=not so good for the Vikings, but the only team that would really benefit would be the Jets from playing on grass) and overall momentum.  This is not knocking the colts, or the jets for that matter, they are both really good football teams, and are very capable of winning it all.  I think the saints offense (as much as I hate to say this as a vikings fan) is better than our offense, but then again I don't know, they make a lot of sportscenter highlight reel plays.  Some of those plays I'm just like "really, where is the coverage?"  However I don't think the Vikings offense is that far behind if they are at all.  Brees hasn't faced a line like ours either, the closest being the Cowboys, and we all know how that turned out.  I am very worried about our secondary and how they match up, because after all the saints really can throw the football.  Hopefully we get some pressure and a couple stops, because this could be a barn burner.  I think our defense matches better against their o overall then theirs does against our o.  I know that a couple big plays here and there and the game will go in one direction the other.  As a biased vikings fan, I think that if we play our best on both sides and they play their best on both sides I think we come out on top.  This game has me very concerned though as I really just wanna see us win a superbowl once in my life.  (Saints can win next year, idc)  I wish it could have been here, as we are undefeated at home and have the crowd working for us.  But at least it is in a dome and on turf, so the Vikings should at least be at full speed.  Either way I think that this game is the real superbowl.
