Lol at the people blaming Brett on the loss. He was probably the best Vikings player tonight. Percy Harvin played like an elementary school rookie. The whole team played horribly. The fact that they even stayed in contention was a miracle. Saints defense just did what they had to do, they manned up tonight. The fact that they didn't sack Brett is amazing, any less of a player would have gotten sacked multiple times.

He will.

After he announces his retirement and then changes his mind about 10 times.

I guess if Prince had made a "fight song" like he did for the Vikes, I would have been tempted to roll over after hearing it myself...

Saints defense? They gave up over 400 yards and still won. Favre made a few rookie mistakes like forcing the throw instead of throwing it away. The 12 man penalty was the nail in the coffin though.I just don't like him because he doesn't always show proper loyalty and he shuts it down when necessary instead of always giving the 110%. Now he can go hibernate.

I don't hate Bret. He's still a very good quarterback. What I hate is "retirement, I'm back, retirement, I'm back". I hated it when Jordan did that garbage and I hate it with Bret doing that garbage. Bret, do yourself and your family a favor. Retire while you can still walk and enjoy time with your family. Tormorrow morning you're going to feel everyone of your 40 years and then some. I'm 40 years old and you look a decade or two older than me. Come game day you can still play but how do you feel the morning after the game? That's why Betis retired. He said every Monday morning it got harder and harder to get up and move. Look at some of the former NFL players who can barely walk after all those injuries and surgeries. Do you want to end up like them? Retire and convert your experience into a TV commentator or quarterback coaching or some other related field job. You'd still be in the game, just not on the field getting hit. No, it won't be the same but you'll be able to walk the next day.

At least when Jordan retired,he really left.Favre retired so he could upgrade his team and not have to go to training camp and all without missing a regular season game.

I'd rather see a great player leave the game forever while still playing great than to hang onto the game until he gets so bad that no one will sign him anymore. When a player gets to that point, the last memory fans will have of him is his poor play of the game. When the Saints had Coach Bum Phillips, we were treated to hall of fame players playing past their prime when he brought over some of his favorite Houston Oiler players to play for the Saints. They still had some play in them, but they were at best second or third string quality by that time.

Thank you. No one's denying Farve's accomplishments: There's no doubt he was--and still is--a great quarterback. Making retirement announcements, when he most likely wanted to play all along was what annoyed people. Favre may seem to get away with this, but if Vick, Brady or others did the same, they would be despised--despite their talent levels. If a player isn't ready to quit, s/he should just admit it and keep playing. That player may be stubborn, but not a hypocrite.

On a side note, I predict Favre will retire at least once this off-season....

How did Peterson cost the Vikings the championship? I didn't see the whole game but Peterson had THREE TDs and zero fumbles according to the box score for the game.
