brett favre we can tell when you shoulder fail's you by the passes but at least you gave it all. No alibi's or anything else to explain you have did it all. I sure have enjoyed watching you the last twenty years and with a sack of records you have you should feel real proud as you should. Enjoy your retirement.

So Joe Webb practices all week, then the attention starved egomaniac Favre decides on game day he's going to play. Then blows the game for the Vikes and fakes an injury to get off the field. Favre will cower on the bench this week against the Eagles, then tell his new lap dog coach that he will start the Detroit game so ESPN can talk about him non-stop for another week.

when will it occur to the Vikings that Favre is not, was not and has not been in physical condition to set foot on the field since the very start of the season????

So, how did it work out for his replacement? The guy has something very rare these days, pride and a very large set of balls. He is a wreck and still came out on a cold and frozen day to help out his team.(who really has no QB at this point)

Hey, I'm sure if TJack's toe had felt up to throwing he would have suited up as well. Say what you want about Farve, he's one tough S O B.

You just don't get it. It's MNF folks and "someone" can't stand not to be the center of attention.

Give the credit thats due. It was good to see Favre and Percy playing again.Both look good for awhile too.The Oline will get healthy and improvements made where needed. So they won't get manhandled anymore.And the Vikes will make another run. The silver linning this closes the door a little more on the playoff hopes of the fudgepackers. Their fans know it now as well and the silence from them is enjoyable.

What is wrong with NOT going away gracefully?? The thing I have admired most about Favre is that he can be down, but he is never out. Until the end of the season who knows what he will do. After that, the end of a great 20 year career will come. The NFL won't be the same til there is someone else who plays football like it is kick.

Surprise-coach--I'm starting. Everyone will get all fired up because of me. Plus espn needs the ratings. You know--I am the man. I just want to add a td and an int to my totals. Then I'll get sacked-spill a little more koolaid to my legendary tales--lay on the ground motionless and then get up. At my post game presser--I'll have the media in my back pocket and eating out of my hand. Oh--and I'll keep the suspense going for another 2 weeks. MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL--.#4.

FMC651, I have bad news for you.
Green Bay's last 2 games are at home. If they win they are in regardless of what anyone else does. I get it that when your team sucks you root against your rival...But in this case, sorry man...you may be watching the Packers a little longer than you would like. And then of course you will have to deal with them next year when 9 of their starters come back from injury. It will be like getting 9 first round draft picks on a top 10 team in the NFL. Look at the bright side...maybe Brent will come back, you can always hang your head on that.

How can you not love the desire of Brett Favre to play the game? Had more Vikings and coaches had his desire this team would go to the big show. 8042

How does Longwell find time to speak to the media? Between shining Brett's shoes, carrying his helmet, washing his car and the countless other tasks of a professional bobo, you'd think he'd be too busy.

Was it snowing that hard that no one could see that the prima donna wanted to play if it was fun? He gets tackled hard and then decides not to go back in. After derailing whatever development efforts the team had for their backup quarterback.

Get a grip folks. Judging from the photos Brett did.

I don't understand why some of you bozos can't see that McKinnie and the rest of the O line have been terrible at protecting the quarterback -- any quarterback, and that makes it nearly impossible for a QB to be effective. And at least Favre wants to play! Give him some credit. Finally, our decimated and un-talented defensive backs have negated almost any effort that the D line and linebackers may have made. All that adds up to a disappointing season and high hopes for a great draft!
