Fran Tarkenton still doesn't like Brett Favre in a Vikings uniform
Former Vikings quarterback Fran Tarkenton is still moaning about the fact that Brett Favre is wearing a Vikings uniform. Even though Favre is one win away from getting the Vikings to the Super Bowl, Tarkenton is still hung up on Favre wearing the jersey of the Packers’ enemy.
“It has nothing to do with him,” Tarkenton said. “That’s a great, great rivalry and a great tradition.”
“I’m just amazed,” he said. “This is the best he has ever played. He’s throwing like he’s 25 years old. He’s moving around like he’s 25 years old. It’s unheard of. No quarterback in the history of time -- we all break down over the age of 35 - - (Johnny) Unitas, (John) Elway, (Dan) Marino, (Joe) Montana, Tarkenton, (Roger) Staubach, we’ve never seen this happen ever, ever before, so it’s remarkable.”
