Since I thought the Jets were stupid to sign Favre last year, I'm not sure there are enough adjectives to describe how really really really stupid Childress is to sign Favre with the Vikings.
Favre may win a few more games for the Vikings, but he'll be an ineffective physical wreck by the end of the season unless Childress plans to have him play every other game. He'll destroy the locker room with his self-centeredness.
I actually like Favre, but the childlike joy of his play, that is so fun to watch, is accompanied by childish narcissism.
Our reason is quite satisfied, in 999 cases out of every 1000 of us, if we can find a few arguments that will do to recite in case our credulity is criticized by someone else. Our faith is faith in someone else's faith, and in the greatest matters this is most the case.
