Green Bay Packers and Minnesota Vikings historic rivalry went to another level when the future Hall of Fame quarter Brett Favre joined the Vikings in 2009.
But the Vikings probably is not a luxury Favre this season, which is currently in retirement. In fact, they have abandoned any hope of backup Tarvaris Jackson, well, that is, have no idea who will be their signal caller in 2011.
No good news given the Vikings went 6-10 last year and lost both games for a possible world champion Packers.
There are many concerns Purple and Gold this year, only two years after they made the NFC Championship Game.
If the block never ends, probably trying to get a quarterback free will. If not, some of them extending to choose the former Washington QB Jake Cabinet 12 overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft.
They also need help at defensive end and cornerback.
As for the Packers, they are exactly the opposite.
At the launch of its Super Bowl, they still have their nucleus intact, but probably lost defensive end Cullen Jenkins questions whether free will.
Aaron Rodgers is now a quarter of an elite after languishing in the shadow of Favre for so many years in Green Bay. They also have elite cornerback Charles Woodson and linebackers combined brutal Defensive Player of the Year candidate linebacker Clay Matthews and AJ Hawk.
All in all, this would enrich the history Matchup, but it could be a blast.
