With the crushing losses to the Chicago Bears and the Green Bay Packers, the Minnesota Vikings quarterback appears to have given up. The entire team seems to have to as well, with head coach Brad Childress sapping the life from the locker room. Favre wanted to “re-evaluate” after this loss. The rest of his teammates may want to join him. Adrian Peterson has not scored a touchdown in two games. Wide receiver Sidney Rice had a tepid welcome of 3 receptions for 56 yards from Brett Favre, and Percy Harvin was held to two receptions for 12 yards.
Although the Packers seem to always have the Vikings number, the loss in of itself compounded bigger problems — Brett Favre and Brad Childress. It’s about time to replace Brett Favre with his backup Tarvaris Jackson. Favre is not playing up to winning standards, and his malaise is bringing down the team. Brad Childress also needs to be replaced, much like the Dallas Cowboys did with Wade Phillips. His presence has sucked the life from the locker room and out on the field. Perhaps replacing both will energize the team again. The Vikings certainly need some kind of boost.
