As the staff of the Minnesota Vikings heads south to chat with QB Brett Favre during his rehab from a torn biceps tendon, one member of the an NFC North rival was rooting for Favre’s return.

Bears LB Lance Briggs said he’d love to see Favre become the Vikings’ starting quarterback.

“He’s going to hurt you, but he’s also going to throw you a few,” said Briggs. “He threw me the first interception I ever returned for a touchdown in the NFL.”

Briggs went on to say that defensive players with the Bears are more conscious of Favre’s all-time interception total than the fact that he’s also the league’s all-time touchdown leader.

“We know he’s going to throw us a few,” said Briggs. “He’s thrown me a few, but I’ve also dropped several that I should have caught. We’d love to see Favre go there to play. We’d welcome it.”

Briggs noted that he believes the Vikings are still the team to beat in the NFC North because they are the defending champions. He cited RB Adrian Peterson as the Vikings’ most dangerous weapon and the player who should be most respected.
