    Farve should use the ankle excuse to get out. But, knowing Farve, he won't do that. Gotta give the dude credit, he is persistent.

    You know I feel sorry for him in a way...

    But he is a Viking so that feeling goes away fast

    How is it he was limping BAD after the game, but during the game I never once saw him limp?

    I was in the endzone the Vikings were at at the end, but never once noticed a limp?

    Adrenaline? Peer Pressure? I twisted my ankle during sparring in Muay Thai once. Never felt a thing. Well, I felt my ankle go over, but it didn't hurt. 30 minutes later I could barely walk.

    He was limping near the end on the Percy NO-TD catch. He was excited (thought he nailed us) jumping and limping on the leg in the video.

    I played hockey on a broken and sprained ankle on several different occasions and it hurt like a b***h afterward but when I was in game mode, I wasn't feelin a thing. Now if I can do that, a little fluff of a thing like me, then I don't want to hear Favre whine. (Of course as a result of playing injured, I ruined my ankle and can't even stand up in skates now but anyway...) I digress.

    I saw him limp or look shaken up, not sacks but he was still taking hits and feeling them by the looks of it.

    I was doing a board "break-athon" in Taekwondo and realized I just broke 3 boards with a broken foot (so I decided I better stop). Only reason I noticed it was because my stance was off and I looked down and saw it. It still didn't hurt until that night after it was reset, etc by the doctors. Adrenaline allows your body to do some crazy things.

    Did anybody notice whenever he threw a pick or a bad pass, all of a sudden his limp got more pronounced? a good pass he was running down the field like nothing was wrong. Just like the last two weeks when he did something bad he would start rubbing his elbow.

    Drama queen.

    I saw him limping after Brad Jones brought him down. He was noticeably hobbled, though there were times where it seemed selective.

    I noticed that too. Guess he was getting his excuses ready for those mistakes.

    I watched his press conference and the guy sounded like he didn't think he would play next week. So crazy to think that it may have GB that ended his streak of consecutive starts.

    At the end of the presser, he could barely make it off the stage with the podium, it looked very bad, he needed help to walk...

    Childress should have benched Fail after the 1st INT.
    Heck, he should have benched him a loooooong time ago.
    But he won't do it. He doesn't have the balls.
    So Child has himself as much to blame.
    As for Fail. He won't take himself out. As always this prima donna puts himself ahead of the team.
    He's done but he doesn't realize it and the coach won't admit it either.
    It's all good since the Viqueens are our rivals.

    He has 7 days.
    I expect the Ol' Rent-A-Wreck to be back out there.

    Don't forget when he slipped on the last play, got up and ran 10 yards...

    He won't quit. That's just not in him.

    Say what you will about the retiring and unretiring, one thing the guy's never done is quit.

    No matter how poorly he plays injuried.

    And he WILL play really poorly injuried. We have seen it.

    first time for everything, I think at this point for Favre, it's about him and not about the team, he knows he isn't performing well, and if you're blaming it on injury (which favre is injured) you can't help a team injured, but he won't quit for himself, the team at this point is better off without FAVRE...the man has turned the ball over 14 times so far this season...Favre was a great QB for a long time, he isn't anymore...he is INJURED, he is OLD, he is DONE...

    he was hopping on one foot when he thought they won the game,so think it was bad and because he is brett he kept playing cant feel bad for him then.

    I was down there with you Longtime (section 103). I saw him limping after the interception to Hawk, I was telling the people around me that might play a factor later... turns out it might have? What a game to be at!!
