Packers or Vikings?
To Favre or not to Favre - that is the question.
i'm utterly bored with all the trendy and endless Favre hatred. I think it's awesome he can still torture NFL teams at age 40. I also think it's awesome that so many people predicted he'd be resented in the Vikings' locker room, yet they love him.
As much as I am sick of the Favre hype ... I have to admit watching him play when his wheels are well greased is fun.
Also ... the Vikings during the "Purple People Eater" days were my favorite non Patriot team until Earl Campbell came around. Page and Eller were football gods to me. Marshall and Larsen made it a great team to watch. I would have a hard time not liking the Vikings for such a ridiculous reason.
So go Vikings ... and for anyone who remembers here's the song.

I'm anxious to see the Caper's D and if Favre can gunsling his way out of sacks.

Who do I want to win? The Packers. I think it would be a great story for Aaron Rodgers to lead Green Bay to victory.
Who do I think will win? The Vikings. They have a better offensive and defensive line, plus Adrian Peterson, which should be enough to overcome having Brad Childress as their coach.
