Peter King: "By [signing Brett Farve] now, Childress loses Rosenfels and Tarvaris Jackson...."

LOL. Actually, I have a great deal of affection for Tarvaris Jackson, the Vikings' never-quite-quarterback of the future, who finished last year with 9 TDs, 2 INTs, and a 95.3 rating, including wins over the Giants and Cardinals, despite spending the season getting jerked around behind Gus Frerotte. And was thus rewarded with another position battle as Brad Childress continually tried to replicate the legendary passing game of the late-90s early-00s Washington Redskins.

In other words, Favre is just a much better old carpetbagger, and the only difference in chemistry problems is one of degree.
