    Here is s.th. I saw at NFL.com. It is from TMQ, I didn't hear of s.th. like this before.

    Ed Stubenrauch of Cincinnati notes the Gamebook of the Bengals/Packers contest records the final play like this: ":)05) (No Huddle) B.Favre to CIN 26 for 4 yards. B.Favre pass to B.Franks to CIN 15 for 11 yards (O.Thurman). Penalty on GB-B.Favre, Illegal Forward Pass, declined." According to this line, Brett Favre both rushed for 4 yards and passed for 11 yards on the same play, getting statistical credit for both because the Bengals declined the penalty. Had the Bengals accepted the penalty, the game would still have been over, but Favre would only get credit for his rush. In haiku:

    Favre can do it all!
    Including pass and rush on
    one singular play

    I wonder if that's another record Brett now holds.
