Stupidest Farve-related speculation of the day: Vick replacing Favre at Vikings

The Annual Brett Favre Retirement Two-Step isn't even twenty-four hours old, and the sports mediots are already acting silly. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution's Jeff Schultz is already speculating that the Vikings might look at Michael Vick as Favre's replacement.
Please. Kill. Me. Now.
Any smart person could tell you that Vick isn't what he used to be. Even then, he was more smoke than fire. Any attempt to make Vick a starting QF again has to be filed under the title of "desperation move." It's a move to be expected from a team with nothing to lose like the Raiders of Bills, not a team that was oh-so-close to the being the NFC representative to the Super Bowl.
The Vikings' chances of a repeat NFC Championship visit pretty much depend on Favre coming back next year. The more logical outcome of another Farve retirement limbo will be Tavaris Jackson and Sage Rosenfels fighting for the starting QB job. With Brad Childress hoping that Favre changes his mind once again.
