Farve, get off the field. The older you get the longer it takes to heal. Montana and Elway knew it was time to go and they were able to leave the game with all the activities of their limbs and enjoy the rest of their lives. Football is not forever. These young players coming out of college are bigger, stronger, and ready to make their mark in the game even if that means taking out vet QBs that should have retired a long time ago. Farve while you still have the activity of your limbs leave while you still have your health. Just because you stop playing doesn't mean you've left the game; you would do great on the sideline like being a coach, or a trainer, you can even be on espn,(I'm sure they'll give you a job).
Great insight...... Great Post

Report: Favre thinks Childress "has no clue"
Posted by Mike Florio on August 19, 2010 7:07 AM ET
In the 10 questions we cobbled together on Wednesday that, in our view, need to be answered regarding Brett Favre's second tour of duty with the Vikings, question No. 9 focused on whether Favre and coach Brad Childress can get along.
Though the question wasn't posed to Favre or Childress (both of whom addressed the media consecutively on Wednesday afternoon), Jason Cole of Yahoo! Sports has supplied a possible answer.
No.
"Brett thinks Childress has no clue about offense," an unnamed Vikings player told Cole.
Said another: "Brett just doesn't trust him."
So why did Favre return? Is he a glutton for punishment? Or does he simply realize that he can ignore Childress and do whatever he wants?
As we said yesterday, "We've heard persistent rumors that the players in Minnesota generally don't like or respect Childress. Though no good head coach openly aspires to be liked by his players, a lack of respect could kill a team's chances -- especially if it starts with the quarterback whose ring, feet, and **** everyone kisses."
For the Vikings to be successful this year, Favre needs to declare publicly and privately that Chilly is in charge, and Favre needs to behave accordingly. Otherwise, it'll be too hard for the team to function in the way that a team needs to function in order to win a Super Bowl.
Of course, even with Favre's imprimatur, Childress very well could manage to blow **** in his own foot. The goofy decision to instruct special-team coordinator Brian Murphy and offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell to lie about the whereabouts of Ryan Longwell, Steve Hutchinson, and Jared Allen, who traveled to Mississippi to "fetch" Favre, apparently has caused Childress to lose even more locker-room style points.
"Chilly can't even tell the truth about that," an unnamed player told Cole. "I mean, how ridiculous is that? What's the big deal that he has to lie? Worse, he has to tell other guys to lie for him?"
Bottom line? If the Vikings play well, this angle won't get much attention. If they play poorly, the Favre-Childress dynamic will be examined more closely than Favre's bone-spur-growing ankle. From Favre's perspective, it could end up supplying an even better excuse for poor on-field play than polio, swine flu, and/or lupus.
The press keeps looking for that Schism they invented last year,
pucker fans are the only ones falling for it.

Brad either needs to step to the plate and be some what honest will his team or lose all crediablity. They say Mike T. lost the respect of his players for being too lacks, and no Childress is lying to his players. After the season no matter what happens he needs to exit stage right and leave. We need a coach the players can trust. Bill C is still out there and might enjoy returning to coach. Its worth a shot

One thing I notice about you and the faggers is that once you are proven to be wrong you start the name calling. Is that a "sota thing or is it just you two ?

I am starting to appreciate the pucker fans we have around here.
They make us Viking fans all look like Einsteins.

Watching them post anything of value is akin to watching Ray Charles try to light a cigar in a hurricane with a book of matches.

Favre is a great football player. The so called "drama" is what has kept me watching. He has done alot for the NFL, I wish him well for his twenteth season along with the rest of the Viking team. Yes I hope the Packers do well but next year is their year...

Rancid666 unbearable hatred for Viking Fans and the Viking team is unmatched, except forex favre fan and a couple of others...Football is a game and only A GAME..some, however wish to elevate football, and certain teams to the top of their list...Every football fan wants and wishes THEIR team to be in the Super Bowl!However, some and I guess I am as guilty as some, have to fight, claw, punch, kick scratch to try to get the point across..However, when an event such as Percy Harvin's Health enters the arena, it's time to come back down to earth..Harvin and others like him are doing what they can to bring the game of football to all of us..We now owe it to them to bring some sort of sanity back towards the fan's side by supporting all the players, respectful towards each other questions of why this quarterback or that running back done this or that is, all should be moot..This is the time for Football! Start the games, May the best of the best Win!
