Joe Webb

Favre is playing nice with Webb.

Whether or not [intlink id=”35″ type=”category”]Minnesota Vikings[/intlink] quarterback Joe Webb has a legitimate shot of starting for the team in 2011 remains to be seen, but he’s preparing like he does — by working out with [intlink id=”41″ type=”category”]Brett Favre[/intlink].

Webb has been in Hattiesburg the past few weeks, where Favre has been helping him with his passing skills — Webb’s main weakness.

The good news is this. Favre never bothered to help any other young quarterbacks *cough* [intlink id=”25″ type=”category”]Aaron Rodgers[/intlink] *cough* when he was playing, so this is a good sign he’s going to stay retired.

The better news is this. Favre is the NFL’s all-time interception leader, so he’s probably teaching Webb how to force a ball into triple coverage, throw across his body and piss away his team’s post-season hopes right now.

It’s gonna be a fun season in Minnesota.
