Tonight

Posted by: Jim Souhan under Brad Childress, Brad Childress, Brett Favre, Tarvaris Jackson Updated: December 22, 2009 - 5:45 PM

-I'm at Wolves-Hawks tonight. I'll be on pregame on FSN debating Jim Petersen at about 6:35-6:40, then on again for the postgame show.

-To summarize the column I wrote for the Monday paper on the Favre-Childress sideline spat: Although I've come to like and respect Brad Childress greatly, I believe in seeing the big picture, and the big picture is you don't recruit (read: beg) a Hall of Fame quarterback to join your team, then start benching him when he's healthy and playing well, even if he does change a play or two.

Would you rather have a full season of Tarvaris Jackson running exactly the plays that are called in, or a full season of Favre, replete with his foibles? I'll take Favre. Childress obviously would take Favre, too. So Chilly is just going to have to loosen up and let Favre be Favre the rest of the season. There are no worthwhile alternatives.

-My happy thought for the day: I got stuck in a snowbank (because I keep putting off putting on my snow tires), and a random stranger stopped to push me out.

And that man was Tim Brewster! Joy to the world.

-You can follow me on Twitter at Souhanstrib. I'll blog after the game, if there's anything worth writing about.
