Time hasn’t softened Fran Tarkenton’s opinion of Brett Favre

Vikings Hall of Fame quarterback Fran Tarkenton believes there are 5-6 quality quarterbacks in this draft, and the Vikings need to pick up one of them.

The team is looking for a new quarterback, of course, because the Brett Favre era ended in ignominy last year. (We think.) Tarkenton was an outspoken critic of the team’s decision to bring Favre to the team, and says it was ultimately unnecessary.

“The Vikings, they had been winning division championships. I think they’ve had the best 40-man roster probably in football the last 3-5 years. They were winning a division title with Gus Frerotte who is about 80 years old!”
