    That's the headline on NBCSports.com regarding the game recap for tonight's game.

    Probably overstating it a bit, huh?

    The Favre I saw tonight was pretty mortal. Lots of short dink and dunk throws, outside of one bomb attempt. It was very safe, which I suppose is enough when you have All Day running like the beast he is.

    I just think it's funny how obviously in love with Favre the media is. I told my Dad tonight that after hearing Jon Gruden for 3 hours, i'm pretty sure he'd marry Favre if given the chance.

    Not to mention, I don't think the Favre of old ever endangered another player's career like Brett did tonight with that really dirty block he threw on the Wildcat play. I thought Tirico summed that up nicely, "Brett Favre or not, that's not cool". If he isn't fined, there's obvious some preferential treatment going on (speaking of that, don't get me started on the roughing the passer call earlier in the game. Somehow, it's roughing the passer if you take him down as he's throwing the ball).

    And those are my Favre observations for the week.

    "Those grapes are sour..."

    QB rating of 114 isn't too bad, eh? Should have had 2 TD passes but WR dropped a gift in the endzone.

    Hyp-o-crites..thought the old man was washed up, didn't ya'...

    Was hoping for a bad game from Favre? I'm sure Teddy was, as well....

    Favre completed 13 of 18 passes for 142 yards with a touchdown, no interceptions and a 113.7 passer rating...not too shaby for two weeks work, eh?

    Sorry to disappoint you guys...:happy0005:

    With all the weapons on the Vikings roster and they say this is torching the competition? This is Favre's big Viking coming out party? 148 yards, 1 TD? LOL Talk about a Yawner.

    Favre looked average. Good for him, I'm surprised he could even muster that at his age. I felt bad for Brett cause he looked a little bewildered out there sometimes. Vikings looked pretty average other than AP. So much for Chilly's "Kick *** Offense!"

    Yawn

    Did you guys watch the game? it's exactly what Jess said, Favre did what everyone knew he could do, but didn't what everyone knew he couldn't do anymore. Passing balls to Rbs and Tes is fine. He was more mobile than I expected him to be. But he missed the blitz way too often, and only threw the ball downfield once (a good pass, I admit. The wr couldn't catch. but then again, everybody knew they don't have any wrs...). I've allways said he's an improvement over anything they had, 40 old or not. But he's not going to win games alone for them, as he did to us. And they'll be fine if he doesn't try to. But he will, eventually...

    And BTW, what a cheap block. If he was a DT, he would be suspended in the minute.

    Exactly. It's not often you can use the term "Game Manager" to describe Favre, but that's exactly what he was last night. He didn't do anything spectacular, but he didn't do anything to hurt the Vikings either. It was almost like watching Trent Dilfer again. And that's not an insult, Dilfer was good when he didn't try to do too much. As long as Favre stays within himself, doesn't force balls, and is willing to hand to All Day 25 times a game, the Vikings will be pretty darn good. Just don't expect him to put your team on his back and win games for you, because he's not that guy anymore. Luckily, there's enough talent around him that he doesn't have to be that guy anymore.

    Yeah, that was a nasty block and deserves a fine. I'll give old Brett the benefit of the doubt though. It's not like he gets a lot of instruction/practice on proper blocking technique. Dumb on the Vikings part to even put a 40 year old QB in a blocking situation in a preseason game.

    What was up with him just looking at Wilson and walking off. Not even apologizing or checking to see if he was ok.

    Stay classy Brett.

    Brett didnt look bad ,, but he didnt look great eighter ... he will def. have to step it up if they want to go to the big show ... IMO he better get on the same page as the WR or vice versa ...

    That block was dirty. I think that when you look at the Pack/Vike rivalry I have never seen a play where you could judge people's bias or homerism just by how they describe it. I'm a Vike fan, not a Favre fan though, and that block was dirty. Not malicious, but dirty.

    I've seen Vikings fans do everything they can to shift the blame from Favre for that block. And I'm sure Favre hating Packer fans will say it was dirty. But the question is whether or not any of those guys would be singing the same tune if this was 2006 and Brett was still in Green Bay.

    From what I saw, Favre looked good. Good enough to win a few games for the Vikes and give us a run for our money.

    Just depends if he can take the punishment of the entire season. Other was TJack will have to come back in and that is no good for Vikes but good for us. :)

    Yeah..when he manages a game after only being there 2 weeks, the Favre haters come out in force because he wasn't "gunslingin'", meanwhile that's what they criticized him for in GB when that was the only option he had for being on such piss poor teams.

    Talk about hypocrisy, eh?:victory:

    The Jets sucked.

    It is well know in the NFL that teams figured out that the Jet WR's had no speed, so the defenses gambled and taking away the short passing game, and won...

    The OC should have run more to soften them up, but for some inexplicable reason didn't. The Jets defense totally collapsed, and the O-Line was horrible at pass blocking.

    By saying that they were a good team you are either biased against Favre or didn't watch the Jets last year.

    2006 Packers still sucked. 2007 sucked for about 1/2 year and Favre carried them with a horrible O-Line and running game.

    So when they beat the only undefeated team last year they sucked? what about beating the Pats, or the cards, all 3 games they sucked?

    Favre carried them in 2007? Look at the Philly and Washington games for who carried who..Keep in mind those 2 games Brett had 0 tds and 3 or 4 ints..not to mention if the D in the Denver game doesnt make Cutler fumble Denver wins that game..Those are 3 wins if not for the D they would been losses..Still 10-6 tho with division crown



    but yeah continue on saying Brett carried the team

    and now you get a better understanding on why I have issues with Favre nob slobbers...Its either Brett did GREAT is why they won, or the OTHER members of the team sucked and let the team lose..

    Give me a effing break..

    When you factor in his two sacks, he average about 6.5 yards/dropback.....in contrast to APs 10.5 yards/carry.

    Although statistically Favre throws a little more than 1 interception/game, he threw none against Houston so you can pretty much count on that evening out with a multi-pick effort that'll pretty much end any hope the Vikings have of winning.

    And I love Dorsal Levity's view of the 2006 season. Favre had critical....and stupid....goal line turnovers against the Saints, Rams, and Bills......all games we lost by a TD or less.....and we missed the playoffs by one game. Favre's 72.5 passer rating was the second lowest of his career. But Levity sees a crappy team that was carried. Hilarious. This is freakin' comedy gold. I basically only visit this site to laugh at his hysterical rants and he hasn't disappointed me yet.

    Try Brett Favre Message Board :: Index for that...

    D.L is VERY tame compared to the ones there

    Take a look at this gem of knowledge :jester: when trying to explain why Brett was traded...
