New Vikings QB -- Most Wanted Man In Minnesota

1/2/2011 5:05 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Ever since new Minnesota Vikings QB Joe Webb laid a beat down on the Philadelphia Eagles this week, fans have been scrambling for official Webb gear -- there's just one problem ... there is none.

We spoke to multiple Vikings' merchandise shops in Minnesota who tell us they've been bombarded this week by fans who want Webb jerseys -- but because he was a 3rd string QB up until a few days ago ... no Webb gear was ever mass produced for retail.

We're told the only way to get your hands on a Joe Webb jersey this season is to order a "personalized" one ... and even then, it may not arrive until after the season ends.

On the other side of the spectrum -- we're told sales of Favre merchandise have gone colder than the field he was concussed on.

The times they are a-changin'.

Another wasted story by TMZ. Favre was the number one selling jersey for a very long time. Every time Favre switched teams it was the hottest selling jersey again. It's laughable that TMZ loves Vivid and can't stand Favre. The lack of sports knowledge amongst your writers is sad. Go write about something you know like "z" list celebs, sex tapes and tired Michael Jackson & Lohan articles.

No real Viking fan wants a Webb or Favre Jersey. We know the season ended weeks ago.

ps...no real Viking fan ever wanted a Favre Jersey anyway.

Joe Webb and the Vikes beat the Eagles. Hooray! Now the Vikes get to enjoy a little rest before their playoff game... in 2012... if they're lucky... and the world doesn't end as the Mayan's predict.. Otherwise, I hope Webb and Peterson catch a few big ones on that upcoming fishing trip.

And by "fans" you're referring to a couple dozen morons who don't have anything better to do.

The only reason anyone in MN wanted Favre was to make the people with the green and gold houses and #4 Tattoos have to face their terrible choices.
It's done, joke is over. We rubbed your nose in it Wisconsin! We are not a better team, but we took your God. LOL!
