Brett Favre is apparently like Jason, or any other horror movie villain. I really didn't want to have to deal with this, but I think there is useful discussion in this for 49ers fans, and everybody loves a cheap traffic bump once in a while! ESPN, among others, is reporting that Brett Favre is about to sign a $10-$12 million contract with the Minnesota Vikings. Our Vikings blog Daily Norseman has already welcomed him after getting jerked back and forth by this news the entire offseason.
I figure we can keep this reeeeeeal simple for 49ers fans. We had a FanPost a while back titled: "Brett Favre staying retired: Effect on 49ers-Vikings?" So while we could just reverse what people said before, I wanted to open the discussion back up as to how this affects the 49ers September 27 matchup with the Vikings? Obviously this isn't a rookie coming into NFL camp needing the playbook to catch up completely (see Crabtree, Michael). Favre needs to know the plays, but he's a guy who got by a lot on improvising. However, he still has to get in sync with the offense, which will take some time.
So how does this play out week 3 of the regular season?
