Passion = Truth? How Jeffrey James Francis Ircink Sees The World? I love when people are passionate about something. That surging of emotion is the one honest measure of what truth is. It's a truthful display of how a person really feels about something or someone at that particular moment. That passion IS truth.

Okie Barry Tramel says Favre too old for Vikings.

Columnist Barry Tramel of the NewsOK thinks Brett Favre is too old to take the Viking's to Super Bowl:

"Favre’s quarterback ratings the last four years: 70.9, 72.7, 95.7 and 81.0. Rosefels’ ratings the last two years, in which he’s been a part-time starter: 84.8, 79.5. Jackson’s ratings his three years in the NFL, during which he’s made 19 starts: 62.5, 70.8, 95.4.

Favre is descending quickly, which is what 40-year-old quarterbacks do, and Jackson, particularly, is improving, which is what 26-year-old quarterbacks do."

You lost me, Barry.

Rosefel's ratings were over two years, part-time and went down. Jackson's ratings are on the rise, but he's only started 19 times in 3 years. Comparing the stats for both Viking QBs to Favre, who started 48 games in the last 3 years (regular season) is, I think, like comparing apples to oranges. Sure, Favre is gonna be 40 this October, but the Vikings are poised to make a Super Bowl Run NOW. And NOW is when a guy like Favre can make a difference. Rosefel and Jackson have been inconsistent at best.
