Vikings QB Brett Favre might miss Sunday’s game against the Patriots because of ankle fractures.
Former NFL QB Joe Theismann said on Around the League on Monday that Vikings coach Brad Childress should have made that decision a long time ago. Although that may be underselling it a touch. Like saying the miners in Chile were stuck in a hole for a while.
Theismann said Favre was being selfish for being on the field at the end of Week 7′s loss at Green Bay. But he does not blame the player; he blames Childress for leaving him on the field. Theismann believes that Childress should “man up” and play QB Tarvaris Jackson. He said Jackson would have given the Vikings a better chance to win than Favre.
Although, if Percy Harvin gets his foot down, is Theismann still taking that stance?
Theismann said Favre is holding the organization back and that it is time to make a change. Again, an injury might force exactly that.
