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????
You are 100% right. How can a coach let someone play. Your coach is the boss and evidently he doesn't care. Favre has been hurt many times this season and he still starts. I am sure I am not the only one thinking that the coaches of the Minnesota Vikings have no say in what Brett Favre does. He makes the decisions instead of what you and I know. He is in no condition to play. Any other team would have told him no. He had nothing to play for except that he still can stand up. The vikings have lost the control of the team. When Brett says he will start nobody objects.

Here's to the guts, drive and unbelievable passion of Brett Favre for the game of football and his good works off the field! You will always be remembered for the way you played the game. What a superior example of a human being!

Like ESPN said, it's a shame Favre had to take all of the hits he's taken.
The O line hasn't protected him well all year, and this last hit came from a ROOKIE player who shouldn't have been able to get anywhere near Favre.
But all this considered Favre hasn't once complained about this, and you can tell he loves the team, and the team looks to him for leadership. You can see that in the huddles.
Thanks for giving me a reason to watch the Vikes again Brett. I hope you heal well. Here's to your passion for the game - Skol!!
Thanks, man.

Yeah. I don't think people realize how important it is for a team, if they plan on being a champion team, to have great pass protection.

Case in point. Look at what happened to Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Carson Palmer in the 2005 Playoff game when he got low tackled at the knee and had to have major knee replacement surgery. They still do not provide adequate pass protection for him.

When will teams learn this important point? Seriously injured quarterback equals trouble.

Well said, I admire this man to no end, he is tough as nails when it comes to the game, hit after hit and just comes back for more.
Then you see stories and video's of Brett and Deanna on Dec. 17, 2010 going together to a little boys house who has cancer, he is very sick, and his wish was to meet Brett Favre, look up the video "Favre and Anderson" on you tube, it is very heart touching, and shows a side of Brett and how he interacts with kids that makes you so darn proud. here he and his wife are spending time together making someone elses day unforgetable, while the other QB stars out there are fighting dogs, getting DUI's and being accused of attacking underage woman, Brett is still the example we need for the NFL and always will be.
What he and Deanna have done for this country is outstanding, they really should be voted the people of the year, and my guess is when his football career is really over the work they will continue to do will blow your mind.
And no worry about Brett and Deanna's marraige, it is as strong as it ever was, No way a trash like Sterger is going to ruin that.
Thanks Brett for all the years you made football exciting to watch, I do hope you get one more game this year where you can truly shine!.. SKOL VIKINGS!!!!
Thank you for those kind words.

The NFL will be a lot more boring without Brett Favre on the field.

So the other team lays out your starting QB, and your response is to stand there.
Get in a fight. Take an illegal hands to the face penalty. Something. Block the guy into next Tuesday on the next play. Just don't roll over and die.
That was the hardest part to watch. The apathy.
I don't condone dirty playing.

But if I'm the Coach and the other team's defense takes my quarterback out on purpose and the referees look the other way and treat it like an accident and call a little yardage penalty on the other team..........Guess what happens when my defense goes on the field against their offense? A career changing move to their quarterback is going to happen and I'll be out on the field in the referee's faces demanding them to prove that it wasn't an accident. That'll send a clear message to all the other teams. You play dirty at us and we'll cripple your key players.

Afterall, football is the contact sport.

I don't know why teams tolerate this B.S.
