I'm a lifelong Jet fan, and I'll say this much about Favre: everyone else insisted that he was washed up, past his prime. But until the week he got hurt, he was out there moving that team as well as he did in any season with Green Bay. As long as he's able to play the game, I don't think anyone should bet against him.

Favre's dirty pics: A lesson in shady journalism

So it's starting to look like this is valid.
Not a big deal, I mean even if he threw some advances, they would be intercepted.

Cant imagine getting excited on sundays with out my Farve Fix. WHen he does retire (my god, that day will suck) I hope he hangs it up as a Viking, obvously they respected what he had to offer.

I hugely admire BF's accomplishments and he is obviously one of the all-time greats. However....the guy is not the player he once was and even in that it's a huge thing to even be playing effectively at his age...I'm just challenging the rose colored glasses of many that still see the 28yo Favre running around.

Some Key Points:
1) The jets started off with a VERY soft schedule that year and won a number of games with their defense...then the schedule got harder and Favre wasn't hurt so badly that he couldn't play. He finished in the bottom half of passer ratings and while he had some strong games against good teams he had some games where it looked like they'd suited up the mascot in his uniform.

2) Football is a physical game. This is why you don't see a lot of 40yo guys playing it. The fact that he gets hurt or doesn't play as well as the season goes by is just basic NFL 101 and is part and parcel of having a guy that old playing. He get's props for playing at his age but it's not an excuse and due to this when you need him most (playoffs) he is a shadow of his former self.

How does one game away from last years SB means he isn't 27 anymore? We all know that but the Vikes were ONE game away from the superbowl and lost that on OT. I just don't know what your point is? He's not 27 anymore, but his playing ability is better than many QB that are 27 now. Like Tavaris Jackson who fits that 27 age catagory, oh yea that would be just great.

So who do you think (QB wise) they are going to release? I sure hope they would get rid of TJ, but doesn't look like they will.

Awsome, now I have the two Green Bay games and the Saints game to watch this season. AR is one year better, Farve is one year older with a bad ankle...Advantage Farve. Ankles are tough to heal. Usually takes about a year to heal. I sprained mine in April, and it is still swollen to an extent and still occassionally reminds me that its not done healing....Still, Im not Farve, and couldnt play one quarter of NFL football in any given year of my life. GO VIKES...I wanna hear that crazy horn 7 times a game.
