Former Vikings receiver Cris Carter, who immediately and accurately announced on ESPN last Tuesday that Brett Favre would start against the Kansas City Chiefs, had another bold prediction.
On ESPN's SportsCenter and NFL Live Tuesday, Carter suggested that Vikings coach Brad Childress would open up his entire playbook to Favre, as opposed to limited versions with incumbents Sage Rosenfels and Tarvaris Jackson.
"From what I know," Carter said, "through talking with people with the Vikings, Brad Childress only has probably 50 percent of the offense — maybe a little more than that — in with Sage Rosenfels and Tarvaris Jackson.
"The reason why?" Carter said. "Because he thought 50 percent of it was all they could handle."
