I don't care if childress wins the superbowl...this is a pairing that would be too good to pass up....

Dungy and Frazier are very close. So close that Frazier considers Dungy his mentor, and calls him weekly for advice on playcalls and personnel matters. "To be able to walk down the hall as head coach and talk to Tony for advice would be a dream,'' Frazier told me Sunday night ... after he and Dungy had dinner together in Minneapolis. "Tony has told me this: If he did ever do it [become a club president], it would be because of me. When he told me that, it brought tears to my eyes.''

So stay tuned. If Frazier doesn't get the Buffalo job after Minnesota's strong run, and if he waits until next year to be a head coach, we'll all have to be on Dungy watch again.

He is worth almost 3X his weight in gold. He weighs 222 pounds which is 3552 oz. Gold is at about $1133 an ounce. He is worth $4,024,416 in gold.

Troy Williamson's helmet was too big so he couldn't see the ball. Favre would retire if Vikings win Super Bowl. Probably come back one more year if he didn't. I think he has a 2 year contract.

eh hem, Charlie, Isn't he signed for another year? He's 40 yrs old and at the end of his career; if he wants more money it should come out of your wallet.

I think Favre is worth every dollar the Wilf brothers paid to get him, and yes probably more. I am listening to the Media about the last touchdown, and how we have no class. No mention of Dallas laying it on the Eagles. No mention of Curt Warner almost getting carried off the field after being hit when he was defensless. That's class? And, I am not a Cardinal fan! First the Media had us written off with no way to win. Now that the Vikings won over Dallas, the Vikings have no class and some of the Media just cannot admit they were wrong and give credit instead of critiscim.
And some of the Media persons talk about class?

I really don't think money is going to be the issue. Favre has enough of it. I think alot will do whether he would think the Vikings have a legit shot at repeating if they win it all this year and does he want to become the first QB to pass for 500 td's and 70,000 yards in NFL history. He will get both of those if he comes back and a chance to retire like Elway, with 2 straight. IF they win it this year.

Harvin, Rice, Peterson, Shiancoe WILL all be back and be better than this year.
Might make a difference in his decision.

No thanks on McNabb. He is a crying, sniveling, finger pointer that plays the race card whenever things don't go his way. He has choked in every big game he has ever played in. I'd rather have Sagevaris Jackenfels in there than McNabb. To those of you that think Favre is overrated....., take a look at what happened in the playoffs last year against Philly with basically the same team and what happened this year against Dallas, who stomped all over Philly. Grow up and admit that Favre is the reason the team is where it is right now.

What a slap in the face to all of the Viking greats from those teams of the 70's ... Page ... Marshall ... Foreman ... Tarkenton ...

Bulletin 4U Shooter ... the vast majority of Packer fans wouldn't have a problem with this: "And if that were to occur, the Green Bay Packers had better retire Favre's No. 4 jersey soon or the Vikings could beat them to it."

there are a few QB's who are known for crappin their pants in a big game. Mcnabb is at the top of the list, ahead of Romo.
