The only way the Vikes make the playoffs at this point is if iFarve isn't playing and then they get really really lucky. So I don't see a playoff visit for the vikes AND an intact streak.

He should have retired after Green Bay...I think everybody pretty much liked and respected him then...I know I did, and I still respect his years of playing, successes, etc. I so remember the game he played right after his Dad died...that was incredible. But one has to know when to fold 'em. He's a sure Hall of Famer, so why spoil his legacy? Course, it's sports and we do forgive and forget when it comes to the great ones.

Brett Favre will never ever ever retire and he will never ever ever die!

You're a Packer fan, right? Favre played out of his mind last year.

Favre can still play pretty well, it's the question of age\injury\recovery time.
As the season wore on, he generally declined....culminating in a number of losses that meant having to play the NFC championship game on someone elses field. Additionally he was on a team loaded with talent, an arguably better team that TJ had the previous year and they managed 1 more win.

So, currently I'm not remotely scared of iFavre and am glad he and Childress are still around so as to improve my Bears chances in their meetings next week and then later on.

watching Shannon Sharp and Bradshaw mimic favre balling at the press conference was the best part of Sundays football experience, this guys crying is REALLY getting to me. I used to have HUGE fanlike respect, as you might notice by earlier posts, I mean this guy really got a pass from me, but now that Im a fan of the Vickings and not just a Favre fan, I need him to go away.

seriously, I can't remember an althlete talk so much aobut his "injuries" to the media. Jim Rome was saying how they (athletes) are almost always reluctant to talk about thier injuries, if they say something it's a short comment and they more on if they talk at all. but this guy just goes on and on and on.

what a drama (vi)queen.

Yup, and Favre even said before this season started that a repeat of last year by him would be impossible.

And where did that amazing season get us?
Finally a Super Bowl Championship ?

Nope..............almost an NFC Championship !

You gullible folks thought an aging drama queen (Favre) was all that was needed to finally bring a Super Bowl Championship to Minnesota.

He was on a stacked Vikes team and played great until the season wore on and then wobbled badly down the stretch like he did with the Jets.

This year he STARTED hurt and the Vikes had some other personnel issues and injuries and voila.

Healthy he can still do some damage but hurt....not so much and 40yo in the NFL is going to be hurt a lot.

Oh well, hopefully the Packers don't beat him up too much...Bears still need him to contribute to another win this season.
