I got a kick out of the commercial where Frave was accpting the 2020 MVP tropy saying he had out lived the fans and wasn't sure about next year.Kind of like giving the thumb to Farve haters.

Bretts watched Payton last night: "See, they did that to me too", Both are now victims of Saints interceptions that ended the hopes of championships. Really didnt expect Manning to do that, to be honest, sort of expected it from Farvre (past history often defines future behavior).

Big difference though if you watched each.The Manning pass was intercepted because the guy ran in front of it,so it wasn't that bad.If you watched the Favre one, he knew a sack was coming so he threw it out there kind of blindly.

Sorry, there are no "good" interceptions. Payton had two good legs, and a good shoulder, Farve was hobbled and had a bad throwing shoulder. Not saying it wasnt ill advised, but if either pass connects for a 1st down, they are both "brilliant".

I think that may become reality.

True,there are no good interceptions but a thing known as video tape shows us if a tipped ball caused an interception or if a QB just threw a bad pass;there is a difference.Favre's pass was much worse.If he was trying to avoid a sack,out of bounds would have been a much better idea.On Peyton's pass the receiver waited for the ball instead of going for it,and the defender stepped forward.So it was a good play by the Saints defense and in the stats it shows the same but by review we know which pass was worse.Brett owns that one!

I just watched both passes and Favre's was definitely dumber!! Favre had a few yards he could have run to set up Longwell.

A great article in today's Minneapolis Tribune about Brett Favr's need to be begged.

Excellent article written by Patrick Reusse..

I especially like his opening sentence------" The only thing Brett Favre likes more than playing football is being begged to play football"

I agree 100%.
