Brett Favre will go into the Pro Football Hall of Fame this weekend. Clearly a well-deserved honor.
Favre will be inducted last among the eight-member class of 2016. As the biggest and most successful name in the class, that’s also a well-deserved honor.
Here’s something that isn’t well-deserved.
The scumbag Minnesota Vikings somehow got worked into this whole thing.
What you see above is Favre’s locker at the Hall of Fame. In addition to a Green Bay Packers helmet and jersey, it also contains a Minnesota Vikings jersey.
That, my friends, is pretty damn idiotic.
It isn’t just idiotic because we hate that sorry excuse for a franchise known as the Vikings. It’s idiotic when you consider the facts.
Favre was a Packer for 16 seasons. He was a Viking for two. He was also a member of the New York Jets and Atlanta Falcons for a season each.
Where are those jerseys?
Sure, Favre had a slightly longer tenure in Minnesota than he did in New York or Atlanta. However, that tenure in Minnesota included one great season, followed by the worst season of Favre’s professional career.
That’s right. People like to forget 2010. Favre was 5-8 as a starter, threw for just 2,509 yards and 11 touchdowns, while chucking 19 picks. His consecutive games streak also ended.
So you’re telling us the loser Vikings get a jersey in that display because of one good season?
Oh, right… we forgot…
Brett Favre is the greatest player the Minnesota Viking have ever had and will ever have.
