ESPN's QB rankings:

9) Brett Favre

He had an excellent no-turnover day in road win over Minnesota with 347 yards, 2 TDs and 0 INTs. He found WR Donald Driver over the middle all day for 191 yards. He is really running this offense well and having a lot of fun.

please update this thread whenever brett favre is having fun.

Favre having fun, but is it enough to prompt a return?

GREEN BAY, Wis. When Brett Favre picked up wide receiver Donald Driver and carried him fireman-style up the sideline after the two hooked up on an 82-yard touchdown against Minnesota, it sure looked like the three-time M-V-P was having a hoot.

But is Favre having enough fun to talk himself into playing another season for the Green Bay Packers? That remains unclear.

After spending much of the offseason stoking a media circus about his retirement plans, Favre has said that he doesn't want to spend this year answering questions about next year.

Still, Favre acknowledged today that he and wife Deanna have "occasionally" talked about his future.

He says it probably happens more after a loss or something bad ... and it's much easier to go through the work week when things are going smoothly.

Favre says he's having fun, but the season has been just as much of a roller-coaster for him as it has been for everyone else. One week, the Packers lose to the Buffalo Bills. The next, they beat the Vikings in Minnesota.

But he also says he's feeling less tension week in and week out than he has in the past ... and that's one reason he may appear to be having more fun.

BRETT FAVRE
IS LIKE A KID
OUT THERE.

BY ADAM UNDERHILL

- - - -

PLAY-BY-PLAY ANNOUNCER: Second and four, Packers' 42-yard line. Favre lines up under center, Levens and Bennett the split backs. He takes the snap, three-step drop, and is sacked immediately by Spielman. Oh, my ... Favre seems to have wet himself. He has peed his pants, folks. He'll have to come off the field and change his pants. He should have gone before the game started. How embarrassing, just a sign of immaturity.

Packers ready to start their first drive here in the first quarter at Giants Stadium, from the 21. Brett Favre is—he is talking to Coach Sherman and, folks, it looks like he is refusing to go in. Favre is crossing his arms and shaking his head and stomping on the ground. Mike Sherman is livid, he's ordered Favre to take a time-out in the corner. Doug Pederson will have to take over for now, ladies and gentlemen. Brett Favre needs a nap.

Packers down 6 with a minute-four to go, at their own 35. Look at Brett Favre in the huddle, he is picking his nose and eating it. How many quarterbacks have you seen do that, Jim? He is so cool under pressure, he just loves to play. Like a kid.

Third and long, from the Rams' 40. Green is the deep back. Favre drops back, way back ... looking to pass. He is holding the ball above his head and—and Green takes the ball and runs around the left side! Twelve-yard gain, first down. That was a Statue of Liberty play, folks! You're lucky if you see that run in Pee Wee football, let alone the NFL. But that's Brett Favre for you ... he's like a kid in a sandlot. So fun to watch.

Here we go, 54-yard field goal to win it in overtime. Favre is the holder. Here comes the snap, Longwell winds up, and ... Favre pulled the ball away! He pulled it back and Longwell missed and went flying and landed on his behind. Hahaha, just like Lucy and Charlie Brown. Favre is laughing ... he is such a prankster. The guy never takes things too seriously, he just plays for the love of the game. Hahaha ... 49ers will get possession.

All right, a minute to go, a field goal ties it. Packers driving in Lions territory, second and 10 on the Detroit 30. Looking to gain a few more yards here to give Longwell an easier kick, or an easy touchdown if it's there. Favre takes the snap, throws over the middle ... intercepted! Dré Bly runs it back to the 45. Favre's fourth pick of the day, and that seals it, folks. Green Bay will go on to lose this one. That was a poor decision by Favre, plain and simple. Something a rookie might do, not a Hall of Famer. I wish I could think of a proper simile, but I'm at a loss.

Brett Favre: excited to be coming back for Season 17

"I am so excited about coming back," the 37-year-old quarterback said Friday on the Web site of the Sun Herald in Biloxi, Miss. "We have a good nucleus of young players. We were 8-8 last year, and that's encouraging."

Packers general manager Ted Thompson confirmed Favre had told the team he plans to return.

"The Packers are excited by his decision and look forward to a successful 2007 campaign," Thompson said in a statement.

The team scheduled an afternoon news conference.

"My offensive line looks good, the defense played good down the stretch," Favre told the Biloxi newspaper. "I'm excited about playing for a talented young football team."

The news came as a surprise to Packers chief executive Bob Harlan.

"People say, 'What is the secret?'" Favre said of NFL's third-longest streak for consecutive starts. "Well, there is no secret. I think there are several factors, luck being a big part of that, maybe the biggest factor. If you play long enough, you figure at some point something is going to keep you out of the game: flu, sprained ankle, broken bone, whatever."

Green Bay Packers (2-0)
Mike McCarthy, the coach, said he wanted Brett Favre to show more consistency, which means a higher completion percentage, this year. Against the Giants he completed 76.3 percent (29-for-38) , aided largely by 14 straight at the start of the second half. He's normally not a high percentage thrower. The last time he topped Sunday's mark was in Game 6 against Minnesota in 2005 (28 for 36 for 77.8), 28 contests ago. See that, you tell the kid to do something and he does it. Who says he's not coachable?

jay mariotti:

``Football Night in America'' was a Dark Night in Chicago. Not only have the Cowboys replaced the Bears as conference favorites, the Packers are 3-0 and two games up in the NFC North. Grossman's inconsistency is more maddening when juxtaposed aganst the verve of Brett Favre, who is 37 going on 17 and back as the league's biggest feel-good story. Earlier, Favre whipped a game-winning pass that would have cut through a concrete barrier. It was a howitzer throw, leading wideout Greg Jennings perfectly on an inside slant and sprint for a 57-yard touchdown. You know what this means, I know what this means.

We interrupt Hype Week to bring you news from the other 30 teams in the NFL. Actually, just one team. The Packers.

I'd just gone to bed without about two minutes left in the fourth quarter of the Green Bay-Denver Monday nighter, but I couldn't resist. I put in an ear-bud with the Westwood One broadcast, listening to Dave Sims and Bob Trumpy describe how the Broncos went the length of the field and forced overtime on yet another Jason Elam clutch field goal as time ran out. Then Green Bay won the toss to start overtime, and the rest soon became history.

Brett Favre, 38 but playing like 24, faded back to pass for the 14th time since the half. For the 13th time he completed the pass, according to Sims, a high-arching spiral to Greg Jennings down the sideline, caught in perfect stride at the Denver 40 over Broncos corner Dre Bly. He jogged in for the winning touchdown.

"Brett Favre is magic!!!" screamed Trumpy.

"I need oxygen!!!" screamed Sims.

Stupid me, I should have stayed downstairs, with the TV on. Now there's no way I could sleep for at least 15 or 20 minutes. My heart was beating a mile a minute, like I was there.

Green Bay Packers (6-1)

Boy, I just love to watch Brett Favre in one of those night games, whether it's Sunday or Monday. I learn all sorts of swell things about him. That the game is fun for him. That he's just a little kid at heart. "Impish," I heard at one point, or maybe it was "puckish." I don't like to brag ("Not much," says FR) but I believe I can supply a new fact. I ran the tape back and got a hang time on his winning pass, honest. It was 3.04, bad for a punt but pretty formidable for a heave.

Spoke on the phone to Packers WR Greg Jennings and he told me a fun Favre story from today. At one point, after Favre threw another touchdown pass, Jennings walked over to his quarterback and said, "You look like you're having fun out there." To which Favre said, "I'll be having a lot more fun if we win." Which the Packers did. And Favre is looking like he is having as much fun as he ever has.

Week 13 primer: Favre, Romo just wanna have fun

By Vinnie Iyer - SportingNews

You wouldn't be wrong if you said Tom Brady and Peyton Manning are the NFL's best two quarterbacks, regardless of whom you would rank first. Besides, the spotlight was on them again to start the season, as Brady had all these wonderful new receivers and Manning finally was a defending Super Bowl champion. But in the "inferior" NFC, two other quarterbacks are making a case there should be room for four at the top.

Brett Favre could have not thrown a pass this season, and his legacy would have already been legendary, but now that he's in an absolute zone that rivals the best football he's ever played, he's become a special class of his own. Then there's Tony Romo, the heir apparent to the other three as being a terrific, prolific passer for America's Team for many years to come.

Brady and Manning are all about meticulous film study and preparation, which leads to them being more business-like on game day. Of course, Favre and Romo work just as hard to get to their level, but they share a playground style that often defies Xs and Os. It's easy to see they're having fun out there, and that makes watching them fun for us.

So regardless of who wins this week's big matchup in Texas Stadium, let's hope we'll see Favre and Romo go at it again -- in the playoffs, and hopefully, Favre willing, next season. As for who should win this week, Favre's Packers or Romo's Cowboys, let's find out in the. ...

Game of the Week

Green Bay at Dallas. Favre and Romo come from the same gunslinger mold, so expect both to be aggressive and confident in throwing the ball downfield on Thursday night because it will take a good amount of points to come out on top. It's up to them to contain their emotions early, where a mistake can be costly against either playmaking defense.

Both teams bring a good pass rush, the Pack led by Aaron Kampman and the 'Boys led by DeMarcus Ware, but Favre and Romo have excelled at firing passes downfield before the pressure can get to them this season. The key then, comes in making plays in coverage, especially over the middle. That's where Favre loves throwing slants to Donald Driver and Greg Jennings, and Romo loves to lob balls to Terrell Owens and Jason Witten. That's another problem. The Cowboys' 3-4 will be thrown off when the Packers go to four- and five-wide sets, and the Packers' linebackers and safeties can't handle Witten.

So most of the big plays and points in this game will come through the air ... no surprise there. So it comes down to the running games and which team can put the game away in the fourth quarter. Although Ryan Grant is working well in the Packers' zone-blocking scheme, the bruising running of Marion Barber III will give the Cowboys the advantage late. It's a shame that someone has to lose this fun Favre-Romo duel, but don't worry -- they will meet again with more on the line in January.

Cowboys 28, Packers 24.

Source: Favre probably back in '08

Posted: Monday December 24, 2007 06:53AM ET

The Packers are conducting business like they expect Brett Favre to return in 2008 for his 17th season as its starting quarterback. A source close to Favre said this week while he can't know exactly what's going on in Favre's mind, the 38-year-old is having more fun this year than perhaps ever in his career, and that he'd be stunned if Favre doesn't come back next season.

also a true favre story: my friend was a ball boy due to secret suburban jew connections with the laurie and banner family. before the 4th and 26 game he was doing ball jew things when he heard 'hay kid throw me that damn ball' it was none other than the lord and savior himself and the two of them threw the pigskin around for a bit~

Yea, Favre has the right to unretire, but seriously now who is more indecisive than this guy? The timing of this just stinks, especially given the fact that he supposedly entertained the idea of staying in March only to change his mind.

Move on with Rodgers--hell, he probably takes care of the ball better at this stage, judging by the very little flashes of potential I saw in the Cowboys game.

Bo Jackson Overdrive, Sunday, 13 July 2008 02:13 (eleven years ago) link

He may have the right to unretire, but he also has 3 years left on his deal with the Packers. It's almost like a non-compete agreement in the real world: if he wants to come back, it's with the Packers or whoever they want to send him to.

And before anybody starts with how NFL contracts mean basically nothing, let me say that this is one of the few times I side with management in one of these situations. This guy is seriously fucking with them.

The brothers, from the Milwaukee suburb of Pewaukee, started making random phone calls Saturday from the Green Bay white pages urging people to attend Sunday's rally and visit their Web site www.bringbackbrettfavre.com.

Pleasant Plains, Monday, 14 July 2008 14:46 (eleven years ago) link

The crowd of more than 100 chanted "We want Brett," and carried signs reading, "Favre for President" or "Favre Forever." Many in the parking lot wore No. 4 jerseys, tossed footballs and grilled.

they showed this on the wgn news this morning, it was about 85 people, mainly older women and young kids. the "signs" were mostly written on pages torn from a loose-leaf notebook. it was pathetically hilarious.

oh vicodinpaws....

By Chris Jenkins | The Associated Press
3:26 PM CDT, July 14, 2008

MILWAUKEE - Brett Favre finally is speaking for himself: He wants to play but doesn't feel welcome in Green Bay, so he's asking to be released.

The quarterback's first substantial comments on his latest retirement decision reversal come in an interview with Fox News on "On the Record with Greta Van Susteren."

"I am guilty of retiring early and there is a reason for that," Favre said, according to an excerpt provided to The Associated Press before the Monday night broadcast. "And the major issue is 'Why did he retire?,' and 'He asked for a release because he doesn't want to play in Green Bay.' That's not true. And I hope people are hearing this and saying 'OK, that clears it up."'

According to Van Susteren, who spoke to the AP by telephone Monday afternoon, Favre said he was "never fully committed" to retiring and felt pressured by the Packers to make a decision, a notion Packers general manager Ted Thompson and coach Mike McCarthy tried to dispel in an interview with the AP on Saturday.

"Ted always wanted Brett back," McCarthy said. "We always wanted Brett back."

Favre told Fox he understands that the Packers want to move on -- but if they're doing so, they should let him go.

"Them moving on does not bother me," Favre said. "It doesn't. I totally understand that. By me retiring March 3rd, I knew that could possibly happen. All I was saying is, you know, I'm thinking about playing again."

Van Susteren, who is from Appleton, Wis., and is a Packers shareholder, said Favre made it clear he would not return to the Packers if he wasn't the starter. And while Favre said the Packers asked him for a list of teams to which he would accept a trade, he wants to be released to make sure he ends up on a competitive club.

Thompson said the team wasn't going to release Favre, but he could come back in a "different role than he was" because the team is committed to going forward with Aaron Rodgers.

Thompson and Packers coach Mike McCarthy wouldn't discuss the possibility of trading Favre and said they hadn't received any trade inquiries as of Saturday.

Thompson and McCarthy gave AP a detailed description of their dealings with Favre throughout the offseason, including an episode a few weeks after Favre's retirement where the two were prepared to fly to Mississippi to seal the deal on a Favre comeback -- only to have the quarterback change his mind again.

Favre's interview -- which was receiving top billing over an interview with John McCain in promos for Van Susteren's show that aired during the day Monday -- is the latest development in what is looking more and more like an irreparable schism between one of the NFL's most revered franchises and perhaps its most beloved quarterback.

Thompson called the situation "gut-wrenching" Saturday.

"I mean, it hurts," he said. "I'm not talking about physically hurting, but the sensitivity. We understand where the fans are coming from. This is a hot-button issue that surpasses anything I've ever gone through."

chicago kevin, Monday, 14 July 2008 21:27 (eleven years ago) link

According to Van Susteren, who spoke to the AP by telephone Monday afternoon, Favre said he was "never fully committed to smoking the joint at the big tree behind the science building" and felt pressured by the his friends to make a decision, a notion his friends Teddy and Mike tried to dispel in an interview with the school's principal on Saturday.

J0rdan S., Monday, 14 July 2008 21:29 (eleven years ago) link

My God, how many years now has Favre played the retirement cock tease with Green Bay? I swear this might be like the sixth or seventh season in a row.

I think if I was Green Bay's GM, I'd be a dick and tell Favre's agent that the only way he is going to get traded is if he can get a first round draft pick outside of the division in exchange. I'm sure that dork Snyder that owns the Redskins is freakin itchin to make a deal.

I basically agree with Mr. Magill, especially if you're talking about the period between his last Super Bowl appearance through 2006. He didn't always have the receivers he needed, but plenty of underachieving and poor performances. He was fantastic last year, though.

Yeah, he was that good for most of last year. The question now is, how long can he sustain it? He's going to be thirty nine soon. What does he have, one to two good years left? Take a shot if you like, but I think this will be the football equivalent of the Mets' signing of Pedro Martinez. One good year, then pffffftt!

Aaron Rodgers probably will play a safer style of football for the team anyway, about now. He did almost lead them back against the Cowboys after Brett stunk it up last year.

I'd say trade him to the Jets, but they already have two guys that can throw interceptions...

J0rdan S., Monday, 4 August 2008 03:12 (eleven years ago) link

this fucker decided to stay away and then changed his mind AGAIN

"Frankly, Brett's change of mind put us in a very difficult spot," team president and CEO Mark Murphy said in a statement released by the team. "We now will revise many actions and assumptions about our long-term future, all predicated on Brett's decision last March to retire.

"As a result of his decision, we invested considerably in a new and different future without Brett and we were obviously moving in that direction. That's why this wasn't easy. Having crossed the Rubicon once when Brett decided to retire, it's very difficult to reorient our plans and cross it again in the opposite direction -- but we'll put this to our advantage."

J0rdan S., Monday, 4 August 2008 03:16 (eleven years ago) link

actually this is better

But those close to the story believed late Saturday night Favre was going to turn down Green Bay's invitation to return to camp with no guarantee he would be competing for playing time. Instead, sources said late Saturday, Favre had all but decided to take the team's offer of a rich, long-term marketing and promotions contract instead of playing.

I tried listening to ESPN talk radio last Thursday on the baseball trade deadline to see if they had any updates and again today. I cut back four times in my 50 minute drive to work, NEVER once in the time I would listened would they shut up about Favre. I tried again today to see if there was any baseball news on the show, they NEVER went to any other story, everything was about Favre.

It is about like there is no other sport going on in the world. My God it is like worse than T.O. fever from a couple of summers back and that is hard to believe.

earlnash, Tuesday, 5 August 2008 04:33 (eleven years ago) link

Question: Why would the Packers be obligated to pay him $20 mil to stay retired? Surely that has never happened before.

Mr. Snrub, Tuesday, 5 August 2008 04:48 (eleven years ago) link

I guess ESPN just doesn't care that much about baseball. Here it is, the dog days of August, no football or basketball going on, this is supposed to be when baseball's media coverage is at its peak, right? So why the hell do I look at ESPN.com and the top story is that "college football practice has begun"? Seriously, who gives a FUCK about college football right now???

Mr. Snrub, Tuesday, 5 August 2008 04:54 (eleven years ago) link

I hear you. Don't get me wrong, I love football, but I don't really give a crud until week 1 starts. Pre-season football is completely useless.

Talking head on 'the herd' today on ESPN was going off from the 'preseason game' with the Colts and Redskins, that the Colts were at best a 4-12 teaqm and the Redskins could get to the NFC championship game. Of course never mind the Colts LOST ALL FOUR of their pre-season games the year they won the Superbowl. Beyond that, I remember reading an article in the Indy Star a couple seasons back on how since Manning has gotten good, the Colts pretty much never run any of their regular plays in the pre-season. Everything is completely generic when it comes to their routes and blocking schemes, that way they cannot use preseason footage to game plan for early season games.

I'm back around to finding this interesting again; this just released on NYT:
"Thirty minutes before practice began, Favre climbed into his burgundy Cadillac Escalade and left without comment. According to multiple media reports, Favre and Coach Mike McCarthy agreed that having Favre take the field under any circumstances would prove too disruptive. Favre has apparently asked the Packers to trade him."
Really, you can't make this up!

forksclovetofu, Tuesday, 5 August 2008 21:17 (eleven years ago) link

According to the latest, Green Bay might trade him to Tampa Bay. Now that would be interesting. Tampa already has a veteran quarterback who's pretty good at running the offense. Add to that the fact that Farve, by all accounts, is not particularly easy to coach and you have a quite interesting scenario. In other words, how many weeks before Gruden strangles Farve by his raggedy neck beard. It's enough to almost make me a Tampa Bay fan.

leavethecapital, Tuesday, 5 August 2008 23:27 (eleven years ago) link

Favre to the Jets! Holy s**t, the comedic factor of this thing just went off the charts.

There is no way that Favre can go into NY and win with the Jets. C'mon, there is no way that would ever work, if it does it will be the flukiest thing in the fluky freakin' world. It will probably more likely lead into a seven sack multiple fumble and interception orgy with Richard Seymour having ripped off Favre's $4 jersey, placing it on on a first down marker and waving it in the Meadowlands like a flag.

ESPN John whats his name said this afternoon Favre would pick retirement over going to the Jets. Oh God thank you...this whole thing really did need a punchline.

If he had gone to Tampa, there would be an outside chance of getting to the Superbowl, but there is no chance in the AFC East. Without Farve, the Football Outsiders project the Jets as winning 7.2 games. With Farve, they could improve to what, 9 or 10 games. It's maybe enough to get back into the playoffs, but getting to the Superbowl ...ain't happening. Still, he is an upgrade over Pennington.

Second thing, everyone's looking at this from a fan's perspective and not from a general manager's. Good GM's are always thinking five to ten years down the road. At age 38-39, Farve isn't in the picture anywhere in five years. Here are some stats that explain what the Green Bay management may be thinking:

And a reminder of what the last couple of playoff appearances have been like:

http://www.coldhardfootballfacts.com/Articles/11_2318_Cheesehead_reality_bites.html

I'm not saying that Farve doesn't belong in the Hall of fame. He most certainly does. Nor I'm I denying he had a good year last year. He most certainly did, but at age 38-39 the chance that he will be as good as he was in 2007 as very slight.

leavethecapital, Thursday, 7 August 2008 13:37 (eleven years ago) link

Good GMs may be thinking 5-10 years down the road, but shitty GMs who are gonna get fired if their team has a bad season need themselves some gunslinger.

call all destroyer, Thursday, 7 August 2008 13:42 (eleven years ago) link

And that's what Farve is now, a stopgap. Plus, the Jets are going to make a shitload of money from product sales. So it's a good move for them in the short term. They almost had to do something to get some attention away from the Giants.

re: the chad

i think you could argue he had at least two pretty good seasons and two serviceable ones. i can think of many guys who came into the league w/ a higher profile who did not fare as well.

j.q higgins, Friday, 8 August 2008 14:07 (eleven years ago) link

He was really good in what, 2002, probably the only year he was healthy.

leavethecapital, Friday, 8 August 2008 15:02 (eleven years ago) link

Question: did Pennington ever have a good arm, or was he always a touch / short route type of QB?

As for Chad's offensive failings, I think some of the blame has to be shared w/ the Jets' system under Herman Edwards & Paul Hackett -- thanks to my diehard J-E-T-S fan friend, I saw way too many games where there were way too many 3rd-and-longs (between 6-8 yards) that ended w/ completions 2+ yards short of the down marker.

Won't argue with you there--the Jets had nothing to lose with him and got a hell of a lot more than they bargained for in 2002. but then again, it's not saying much--high profile QBs regularly fail, lest the fates of Cade McNown, Ryan Leaf, et al be remembered

dude was never the same after all the surgeries, became more turnover prone.

but hey, he's a Jet, what could you expect....

Bo Jackson Overdrive, Friday, 8 August 2008 23:17 (eleven years ago) link

Chad Pennington might be a good pickup for a team like the Vikings, even as insurance. Pennington is steady and if they can keep him off his back and put the weight on the running game, I think he would be fine. The guy understands the game. Pennington's career completion rate is 65.8, that is freakin' excellent and the guy is not a total interception hog. He just has gotten pounded playing for the Jets, but I could see it working in the right situation ala Brad Johnson or Trent Dilfer. I think he would be perfect for the Vikings with that running game, especially if Jackson cannot get it done or is too mistake prone (ala Johnson replacing King for the Bucs). Minnesota should rap him up and he will be ready about week 7 if it isn't working with the young guy.

I think Pennington should steer clear of Carolina or the Bears, as those teams o-line are so bad, it is just stepping in front of a different gun. Minnesota or maybe some place like KC would be better.

chicago kevin, Monday, 15 September 2008 16:48 (eleven years ago) link

that sack was hilarious. it was a 20 yard loss, most of which was made up by Thomas carrying them backwards. i was praying for them to reach the end zone. i think Favre actually fumbled it as they collapsed at the end, but Washington - who hadn't touched the ground for about 15 yards - managed to pounce on it.

j.q higgins, Monday, 15 September 2008 20:02 (eleven years ago) link

pats d isn't as quick as it could be which is one reason they give up a lot of yards. but they are skilled which is why they don't give up a lot of points, when they get down to the red zone and don't have to cover as much ground they become a little more stout.

chicago kevin, Monday, 15 September 2008 20:21 (eleven years ago) link

i'm sure they're skilled and they're most certainly well-coached, but they haven't really played anyone approaching good, have they?

and they certainly weren't playing that great yesterday, regardless of their normal talent set.

the schef (adam schefter ha ha), Monday, 15 September 2008 20:28 (eleven years ago) link

Pats played a sensible, no-risk game against a team they knew they could contain on defense. the only time i was concerned on either side of the ball was when Cassel kept getting sacked over and over again in the 3rd quarter, like he needed 30 seconds to make a pass. but i was impressed that all that time he didn't do anything stupid with the ball.

the biggest question mark was over Maroney. a lot of running backs had bad weekends and he was down there with the worst of them.

chicago kevin, Monday, 15 September 2008 20:42 (eleven years ago) link

and they certainly weren't playing that great yesterday, regardless of their normal talent set.

no, they weren't great but they weren't terrible either. the biggest blunder i can recall was the moss(?) catch across the middle of the field. run defense was acceptable, esp. when it was apparent they were defending against the pass every down. i definitely do not like it when a defense plays down to the level of their opponent though, makes it too hard to ratchet it up against a good team.

one thing i noticed yesterday about the pats defensive rotation, jerod mayo was the only linebacker in every package. maybe because he's the only one with an age lower than his uniform number but he was in there the whole f'ing game.

chicago kevin, Monday, 15 September 2008 20:47 (eleven years ago) link

you are too defensive! we're just saying, they looked average. not bad. not good. just ok.* no blunders but nothing special either, and the main reason the jets looked really bad was less to do with great defense than it was to do with st. brett being a mental patient.

* this is because they are all john mccain's age, obviously.

ugh, i am terribly familiar with teams playing down to the level of their opponent, i was worried the stupid giants were going to do that yesterday and just squeak out this small victory against a team as terrible as the damned rams because that is what they ALWAYS do but hurrah someone woke the dummies up.

anyway, it is not like the ancient status of their defense is going to give them a .500 or less record, i mean wouldn't worry if i was you. hell, the only reason you might not win the division is because buffalo is suddenly thinking it is awesome for some reason.

the schef (adam schefter ha ha), Monday, 15 September 2008 21:12 (eleven years ago) link

but mainly i think the reason everyone is pointing out that the pats weren't looking tooooo hot yesterday is because everyone loves it when brett favre goes into "touched" mode.

the schef (adam schefter ha ha), Monday, 15 September 2008 21:12 (eleven years ago) link

schef, we're saying the same thing, the pats d did what they always do, give up huge gains then hold on for dear life in the red zone.

the d kind of reminds me of the 2005 pats where they tried to turn it on and turn it off like a faucet despite there never being one team in the history of the league to have had any success at doing that. THAT concerns me more than the loss of brady actually. at least you know the o-line and qb won't be taking any plays off.

chicago kevin, Monday, 15 September 2008 21:18 (eleven years ago) link

i think that their d has been better than this, previously. but they are so olllldddd that i feel bad for them, sometimes. and yes, agreed re: brady.

the schef (adam schefter ha ha), Monday, 15 September 2008 21:24 (eleven years ago) link

If Brett Favre wants to play another year with the Jets, he'll have to work a lot harder to win over his teammates than he did this season.

"There was a lot of resentment in the room about him," a Jets player told Newsday yesterday. He requested anonymity because team owner Woody Johnson has stated publicly that Favre is welcome to return next season if he wants to. (Favre reportedly will take until the end of February to decide about returning.)

The 39-year-old quarterback is not as welcome with his teammates, according to this veteran. After the Jets traded for Favre Aug. 6, the sure Hall of Famer made no effort to ingratiate himself with the already assembled team, the veteran said. He said Favre spent most of his down time at the practice facility in an office specially designated for him near the equipment room, not with teammates in the locker room, even after the media departed.

"He never socialized with us, never went to dinner with anyone," the player said. Asked to describe Favre in a word, he said: "Distant."

There was more of the same sentiment from Thomas Jones, who was interviewed on Hot 97 FM Tuesday. Jones wanted to make it clear he wasn't blaming only Favre but said, "At the same time, you can't turn the ball over and expect to win. The other day, the three interceptions really hurt us. You don't like it. I don't like it and I know everybody else on the team doesn't like it, but all you can do is fight [through it]."

Jones reinforced comments made by other Jets Monday, when the team broke up for the season in complete disarray after Sunday's 24-17 loss to the Dolphins.

On Monday, Kerry Rhodes said: "If he's dedicated and he wants to come back and do this, and do it the right way ... and be here when we're here in training camp and the minicamps and working out with us ... then I'm fine with it. But don't come back if it's going to be halfhearted or he doesn't want to put the time in with us."

A foxsports.com report Sunday said Favre wasn't happy being called out by Eric Mangini in front of the team, as the coach did with all of his players when they made mistakes. But the Jet who requested anonymity said that didn't seem to be the case.

"If he was hurt by that stuff, I'd be shocked, because Eric barely said anything to him," the player said. "Guys would be getting called out for missed assignments or blown coverages, and Brett would have three picks and no one would say a word."

Mangini addressed the team for the last time Monday. The player said the former coach revealed a much different side than he showed before, telling players he'd been tough and aloof only to get the most out of them.

According to the player - and he was backed by very supportive comments about Mangini from other Jets - very few in the room thought Mangini deserved to be fired, and that the acquisition of Favre and his subsequent "me-first" attitude hurt the Jets more than anything.

"Eric," he said, "wasn't the reason we didn't make the playoffs."

Brett Favre to wait several weeks before decision about 2009

Favre said that if he does decide to announce his retirement from the NFL for a second straight offseason that he will do so differently. He plans to make a quiet decision without a public news conference, such as the one he held upon finishing his 16 years with the Green Bay Packers, in which he became choked with emotion. NFL.com Video

Will Brett Favre be back in New York in 2009?

"I'm an emotional guy, and I'm sure people are tired of seeing me get emotional,'' he said. "People would probably say, 'Oh, here he goes again.'

Latest buzz is that new free-agent QB Brett Favre has hired a personal trainer at home in Mississippi. It will be surprising if Favre isn't with the Vikings in training camp. Why did Favre now want to get released from the Jets? Favre's sudden arrival on the market makes you wonder if that's the reason the Vikings haven't spent much on free agency this year. Maybe they knew something. There could be two motives: wanting to play for the Vikings, who have wanted him for a year, and a $20 million pot of gold. The $20 million isn't a new playing contract. The Vikings probably could sign Favre for about $7 million for the coming season, with about $3 million more available in performance bonuses, such as winning the Super Bowl. The $20 million, remember, is what the Packers, for whom Favre played 16 seasons, offered Favre nearly a year ago to retire from Green Bay. The 10-year marketing deal would have made Favre an ambassador for the franchise. Now that the future hall of famer has been released by the Jets, Favre could have new leverage: Give me the $20 million and I'll stay retired. If not, I'll sign with the Vikings and make life miserable for the Packers. (St. Paul Pioneer Press)

The next thing I knew, he was telling the waitress to forget about his order because he wasn't even hungry, then sobbing, then wearing a Jets hat and finally ordering pizza.

Ron Yary played for the Vikings from 1968 through 1981. Fran Tarkenton, who has chastised quarterback Brett Favre for the possibility of signing with the Vikings, was quarterback for three of the losing Super Bowl teams Yary played on. Yary, like Tarkenton a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame, has great admiration -- and empathy -- for Favre, a future hall of famer. "If the Vikings would have had Brett Favre during the time of my career, we would have been 7-0 in Super Bowls. Absolutely," Yary said.

"I love Favre and I think he's been a phenomenal talent for a long time. But when I think about it now, I say, 'Stop it already.'

The quarterback is to appear Monday night on the premiere of Joe Buck Live. The HBO sports show is hosted by the longtime baseball and football announcer. HBO says Favre agreed in April to appear on the show at Buck's request. That was before his release from the New York Jets, prompting Minnesota's pursuit of the 39-year-old three-time NFL MVP.

o lorenzopaws:

NEW YORK (AP) — Brett Favre says he is considering coming out of retirement for a second time and the only team he has talked to about a return to the NFL is the Minnesota Vikings. Favre appeared on the new HBO show "Joe Buck Live" in his first public appearance since retiring from the New York Jets in February.

The three-time NFL MVP said Monday night he had surgery 2 1/2 weeks ago on his throwing arm. He says the doctor who performed the surgery on his biceps told him it would take four to five weeks for the NFL's career leader in touchdown passes to know if the procedure was a success. Favre says he has had contact with the Vikings, but "nothing more than are you interested."

Okay, it's really rare I remember my dreams and I generally only remember part of them but I SWEAR TO GOD I actually had this dream last night:

You know how in dreams you sometimes "are" a person, but you're seeing them from the outside too? Okay, so I'm Brett Favre. And I'm standing on top of an overpass, maybe eighty, ninety feet off the ground. I'm holding my kid and my wife is standing next to me. And I make the decision to leap off the overpass and I'm going to do it with my kid. I know it's a bad idea, but I'm going to do it anyway. So I leap off and my wife is screaming so I think "okay, gotta protect my kid" so I intend to roll on my back to take the brunt of the impact, but without thinking I actively push my child away and she flies off in another direction and Brett is screaming and his wife is screaming and his kid is screaming and then kid hits the ground and Brett/I hits the ground and we all die. Then I wake up.

What if a certain former Green Bay Packers and New York Jets quarterback resumes throwing and informs Childress his surgically-repaired throwing arm and 39-year-old legs are up to a 19th NFL season?

"Not a chance from my standpoint. I'm going forward with the guys we have," Childress said.

your only game plan at this point if you are Brad C is that you hope teams still fear Favre a bit and AP will be able to rush for hundreds of yards every game. i figure the offense will end up being about the same, more big plays more turnovers, but this will really expose a defense that was set to struggle anyway.

they were talking about how a head coach who loses credibility in the eyes of players can never count on them to go above and beyond. schlereth told a long story about how for four years whenever the broncos played the chiefs, shanahan would rip on dale carter and say he wasn't tough enough, man enough, etc. to be a bronco. after four, the broncs signed carter and made him the highest paid dude on the team, letting go some other v. well-liked guy in the process. schlereth claims from that day forward shanahan lost part of the team.

Dude magically wanders in like the day before camp ends and says "Oh yeah my daughter just wanted me to win a Super Bowl yesterday, LOL what can you do?" Dude is basically football Roger Clemens, with painkillers instead of steroids. I think I would even be less infuriated if he had signed with the Vikings a month ago instead of Re-re-re-re-retiring and then pulling this crap, just because I allowed myself to believe that it would finally be over.

Did he seriously say "True Packer fans will understand?" Like he is like Ray Bourque or something? The only way I am going to understand is if he throws every single pass to a Packer defensive back, and then injures himself enjoying the game in a childlike manner. If I had a pair of Wrangler jeans I would set them on fire.

C-L, Wednesday, 19 August 2009 01:53 (ten years ago) link

Are the Vikings good enough to contend for a Super Bowl title with an aging Farve as QB? If he's intent on winning a Super Bowl, I imagine there's better places for him to go (tho, I guess at this point, Minn. is one of the only top-tier type teams in need of a starting quarterback (?)).

Daniel, Esq., Wednesday, 19 August 2009 01:56 (ten years ago) link

i mean i don't think the vikes are a super bowl team but i would have said same about the cards last year. i don't think he wants to play for them because of their chances to win--this is all abt sticking it to green bay.

i think the real question is--how likely is it that he will lose a game for them late in the season or early in the playoffs? i think chances are real good and that's something i never would have said about kurt warner to name one.

call all destroyer, Wednesday, 19 August 2009 02:04 (ten years ago) link

I gotta look at their roster. The Vikings were an invisible team to me last year. I guess I remember that they were pretty good. And the NFC seems weak(-ish).

Daniel, Esq., Wednesday, 19 August 2009 02:06 (ten years ago) link

they have a really good defense and a top 3 running back. certainly enough to come out of the nfc with a caretaker qb, which is the essence of why signing favre is really fucking dumb.

No Cardinals? No Cowboys?

This can't be right. I watched Rosenfels in Miami. Aside from his first pass as a starter . . . ugh.

rosenfels played pretty well for the texans last year while schaub was hurt

geir ham, go (J0rdan S.), Wednesday, 19 August 2009 02:58 (ten years ago) link

the vikings really do need a quote unquote 'game manager' - someone who can complete passes in the 8-15 yard range consistently and just hand off to AD/chester taylor and most importantly not throw INTs - tavaris jackson was totally incapable of doing any of these things besides handing off but rosenfels could def be a careful, efficient QB for them

i think chances are real good and that's something i never would have said about kurt warner to name one.

many xxxps, but cards to me are a one-year wonder. they might make the playoffs, but i would be really really amazed to see them go deep again. the cowboys as constructed and coached are going nowhere.

as for warner, it's hard to see him as a liability in the right system. and he is def in the right system. you may be able to find statements to the contrary but i recall liking the '08 cards offense a decent amount--enough to do an 8-8 or 9-7. i don't think ANYONE foresaw what they became in the playoffs.

Here is the official transcript from Brett Favre's press conference.

Introduction by coach Brad Childress

The focus has been here on our team for the last two weeks. I like the way the guys have been practicing, we always continue to evaluate whatever ways we can make this organization better. It felt like we had an opportunity to add a piece to the puzzle, just like I told our team today. The success part is never final. The more good tools you can have on a team, the better off you are. I feel like we added a decent piece to the puzzle here.

Let me introduce to you, Brett Favre.

Brett Favre

Questions?

Q: What was the offseason like and the process of getting ready

A: Obviously, first and foremost, I knew if I was to play, I would have surgery. I was kind of iffy on the surgery (and) finally decided to have it. Dr. Andrews said it would be roughly six weeks. He was right, it was roughly six weeks. Although at times I felt really well, other times not quite as well. I guess, what I went through last year with the torn bicep, going into the season not knowing, or feeling fine, the season as it progressed, my arm got worse and worse. I wanted to make sure if I was to play I wouldn’t go through that again. I really felt like I did everything I could possibly do to get where I wanted to be. I didn’t feel like at times it was where I needed to be. Maybe subconsciously, as Coach Childress had said, “You need to cross over that line, take that chance. At 39 years old your arm may not feel like it did at 21, but the pieces are in place here that you won’t have to do as much.” I totally agree with that, three weeks ago, what has changed, one of the reasons I said no, I found out after the surgery that I still had a tear in my rotator cuff. When I heard that news after the surgery I thought, “Oh boy. I have a torn rotator cuff.” I was still having a little bit of pain. I had an MRI in May or June after the surgery and that showed I had this torn rotator cuff. Talking with Dr. Andrews, he said, “Well, it was actually there before the surgery. Had I actually fixed that, you wouldn’t be playing this year and you may not play next year, because that is a pretty serious surgery. It looks like you have played with it for quite a while.” That scared me, being a quarterback or pitcher at 39, just coming off of surgery for something totally different. I was reluctant, would be an understatement. I just kept thinking, “I don’t want to go through what I went through last year.” When Brad called yesterday I was on my way up to a high school, to help out with some kids. We had a good conversation. I hadn’t talked to him in three weeks. He said, “I want to give it another shot and see if you would take the chance?” Between three weeks ago when I said no and the conversation we had yesterday, I had talked to Dr. Andrews, and was reassured that it wouldn’t be an issue, although I thought it was over and done with. It kind of gave me another chance yesterday. I felt like if they were willing to take that chance, I was too.

Q: What were the magic words that allowed you to come back?

A: I was reassured, not from Brad Childress but from the doctors here, that there are no guarantees. Hopefully its not an issue but you never know. My arm has felt, I shouldn’t say 100 percent, but pretty good. It’s good enough for me to feel confident about making the throws I need to make. Once I knew that was okay and was fortunate enough to get the call from Chilly yesterday. I said, as a lot of friends and family have told me, you won’t know unless you take the chance. Everyone who I’ve talked to; former players, coaches, and just people in general said, if you wanted to go back this is a perfect fit. It really is. Once again there’s no guarantee but we have a really good football team here with a very good running game and I hope from my standpoint, I felt like I could offer some experience and leadership. I have to admit, through this whole process, after I said no three weeks ago, at times I was okay with it but at other times I felt like I could really help that team and I think that’s the competitive fire in me. As a player, regardless of sport, you have to feel like you can make a difference. I truly feel like I can so I just didn’t want to look back. I have no idea how I will feel a year from now, five years from now, 10 years from now. But I didn’t want to say, “What if?”

Q: With your history of rivalry, what was it like putting on the Vikings helmet for the first time?

A: It was different. I’m not going to lie to you, as it was different in New York last year. Sixteen years played in Green Bay were great years and that was home to me. There were some great games against this organization. Some we won, some we lost. I think in time it will feel great. The bottom line is that it’s football. Once people start chasing you and once you step into the huddle, I don’t look at the helmets, I look at the faces. I think the guys will know I’m in it for the right reasons. That’s because I still love to play. Regardless of who it’s with, I still feel like I can help this team or whichever team was willing to take a chance. I know there are people out there taking sides or whatever. This is not about revenge, believe me. You can’t take away the 16 years I had in Green Bay, it was unbelievable and it was great. That will be forever cherished by me and the guys I played with. They’ve moved on and I’ve moved on so I think it’s great for football. I can’t see how you wouldn’t think it would be.

Q: Were you thinking about reaching out to Brad Childress or was it mostly him?

A: Believe me, at times I felt I hope I didn’t make the wrong decision but I knew I had to live with it. When Brad called yesterday I was kind of like, this is it, it’s now or never. Jokingly as we were talking, I said can I play Friday? It was early in the conversation and he responded, “You want to play? Let me talk to our owners.” Another thing I forgot to mention was that when I said no earlier to Coach Childress and Coach Frasier, my 10-year old daughter who was neutral in this whole deal. So I asked her, “What do you want to do daddy to do?” She said, “Whatever you want to do daddy.” I said, “That’s a good answer but what do you want me to do?” She wouldn’t say until after the news broke and she started crying as we sat on our back porch.

Anybody who has children, I can be chased by five defensive linemen and that doesn’t scare me but when my daughter cries it softens me up. She said, “I wanted you to go back and win one more Super Bowl.” I said, “Ugh. Why didn’t you tell me that before? She said I didn’t want to make that decision for you.” It’s amazing what you learn from your children. She said, “Can you go back?” I said, “Too late.” I found myself tearing up this morning as I brought her to school, and she said, ”Daddy, it’s going to be fine. You go up there and do what you got to do. We will be up there soon enough.”

I think I made the right decision, I really do, but time will tell. All I can say is I’m going to do the best I can. I told Brad that, and Mark Wilf and Zygi Wilf on the plane ride up that I can only give you my best, and we will see what happens.

Q: What is your reaction to people who are tired of you wavering?

A: Don’t watch. Like my old roommate and center for a long time, Frank Winters in Green Bay, who’s from Hoboken, New Jersey, and has a funny way of putting things (said), “Dude, its America. You know, it happens all the time.” It is what it is.

Q: Will this year define your legacy?

A: First of all, when people start talking about my legacy, it’s mine. It’s what I think of it. I know the way I play the game. I know the way I handled myself as a teammate, as a leader, within the public. Yeah, I’ve made mistakes along the way, we all have. But if I had to do it all over again, I would do it the same way. I don’t think anyone has played the game with as much passion and has loved it, and loved his teammates as much as me. I haven’t always been the best player. I would like to think that every player that I have played with would love to have me in the foxhole. I have no idea what is going to happen this year. I didn’t know last year. As I look back, I gave it everything I could give. That’s what I’ll do this year.

Q: Packer fans’ reaction?

A: I think if you’re a true Packers fan, you understand. Will it be different? Sure it will. Is it odd the way it’s unfolded? Absolutely. If you’re a true fan, you say, “You know what? He chose to continue playing. They chose to go in a different direction. It’s part of the business. He has to play somewhere if he wants play.” Once again, this is a perfect fit.

Q: Are you playing Friday?

A: Coach Childress is still consulting with owners. He said he would get back with me about Friday.

Q: Would you be comfortable playing Friday?

A: I think I am. Obviously, I’m behind the eight ball a little bit. I don’t think it smart to play a half. Just to go out and run a few plays, whatever those may be. Just to kind of get your feet wet. As much as I’ve played in my career, there still is a difference from year to year. For me today in practice, the key was just the little things. Making sure you get the snap, calling the play correctly and coming here made a lot of sense because the system is something that I’m very used to. Calling the plays today was easy. Adrian’s (Peterson) steps are a little bit different than what I’m used to. The running plays are the same. Maybe the guys run the routes a little different. What I need to get accomplished in this is understanding my guys, how they run their routes, footwork and things like that. The line getting used to my cadence, you get those things in practice but there is no substitute for game situations.

Q: How long have you had the rotator cuff calcification?

A: He wasn’t for sure and I’m not a doctor, but I don’t know how you would know that for sure. What I gathered from him is that the calcification said that it had been there for quite a while. My question for him was, the bicep pain, from the end of the surgery was pretty much gone, and I said to him, “Could the bicep pain over shadowed subtle rotator cuff pain? He said, “Maybe, but I think you would have known prior to that if it was really bothering you.”

Q: What kind of reception did you get from Vikings players? Did you say anything to Tarvaris Jackson or Sage Rosenfels?

A: It has been a little bit of a whirlwind, pretty much went right into practice. A lot of faces I recognize; a lot of faces I didn’t recognize. As Brad and I talked about before I came in, even though I have played for a long time and have been around, played against a lot of guys with a lot of coaches, you still have to earn respect from this team. What you have done in the past is great, but it means nothing here. I like to play and carry myself a certain way. I feel like you don’t do that the first day, second day; I don’t know when that happens. You pick your spots. You earn respect with these guys and that is what I intend to do. I spoke with Tarvaris Jackson and Sage Rosenfels and John David Booty a little bit today, not much, we were working. I am open any time anyone wants to ask a question or talk to me. Jokingly, Coach Childress asked me after practice, “Traditionally here we have the new guys say their name and where they are from and something unique about yourself.” I said, “I am Brett from Hattiesburg, Mississippi. I am the only one on this team born in the ‘60s.” That kind of broke the ice a little bit, but the guys have been great. The reception I got, I haven’t been followed by a helicopter in a while.

Q: What will it be like not having to worry about being the focal point of an offense?

A: I think as a QB, you kind of go as the team goes, and what you are asked to do. You never know. I have heard that this whole offseason, “You don’t have to do much; we have a great running game.” We all know that, but there will always come a time when you need to make plays. you have to do certain things that you may not have to do on a consistent basis. I would be the first to admit, I don’t think I am capable to make some of the plays I used to make. My mind might tell me I can, but I don’t know physically if I can do that. Understanding my limitations, how it pertains to what we are trying to do is all a part of this process. All I want to do is win; that is all I came back for. There is nothing like it. For guys who have played this game and sports in general, former players, guys in latter part of their career, they will tell you, “It’s tough.” There is no substitute for playing on Sundays. You can’t find that. That is what I am here for. I don’t know what I am going to be asked to do but I know one thing in particular and that is, be a leader. Do things a certain way. I know I can do that.

Q: Why do you think the perception continues to exist that this is revenge?

A: You guys obviously would be better suited to answer that. I think the circumstances of how it all went down. As I have said before, I think both sides were wrong to a certain degree, but I have no ill feelings towards that. That stage in my career I wish I could have done differently, both sides. I’ve got a lot of friends on that team. A lot of those guys we have had a lot of great games together. Once again you can’t take that away. I don’t think I have to prove anything to anyone, in fact, I know I don’t. What I have done is down in the books. I could easily play those guys and beat them twice and lose the division. They could win. If it was about revenge, I would have signed on the dotted line the first day. I would have worried about the arm later but it wasn’t about that. People can believe what they want and that’s fine. I’m in it for the right reasons and if people can’t understand that, that’s fine.

Q: What do you think will make this a good season?

A: My expectations are high and this team is a good football team. I didn’t come here to lose. I don’t think any guy in that locker room is here to lose. I think we can be as good as we want to be. From the outside looking in or the inside looking in, this team is a good football team. They really are and I think the sky is the limit. We all know how hard it is. It’s even hard for the teams that won the Super Bowl last year to stay good on a consistent basis. It’s a small window. Once again, I think this team can be as good as they want to be.

Q: Will it be easier for you to adjust to this system than it was with the New York Jets?

A: Much easier. I still have to learn the guys but it was so much easier today because of all the plays I was familiar with. Those guys in New York last year were great. They were conforming the offense to where it was comfortable for me, but it was still difficult. Where as here there’s little subtle changes in offense that may take some time but for the most part the formations and protections are the same. Today I didn’t miss a beat calling those plays. I didn’t run many plays but it came out pretty easy.

Q: What did it take to get you number 4?

A: I have no idea. It didn’t work out like I thought. Honestly, I really thought it was over, which was my fault. I was still going up to the schools and helping out. I noticed the last three weeks I was getting called coach more instead of Mr. Brett and Brett. Yesterday I went up there and the guys said “Hey Coach Brett, are you coming to the game Friday night?” I said, “I don’t know. I may be out of town.” They said, “YES!” I didn’t say anything but I felt their excitement. Along with that comes high expectations and I’m well aware of them. I felt them as soon as I got off the plane today.

Q: Is this the first time you’ve been to the Twin Cities in this process?

A: II hate the fact that there’s other people that look like me. I feel sorry for them but this is a first time. I don’t know what Brad Childress did but John Booty is a southern boy too so he must’ve talked him into it somehow.

A: I needed a new heel for m'shoe. So I decided to go to Morganville, which is what they called Shelbyville in those days. So I tied an onion to my belt. Which was the style at the time. Now, to take the ferry cost a nickel, and in those days, nickels had pictures of bumblebees on 'em. Gimme five bees for a quarter, you'd say. Now where was I... oh yeah. The important thing was that I had an onion tied to my belt, which was the style at the time. You couldn't get white onions, because of the war. The only thing you could get was those big yellow ones...

Also, I'm just here to win a superbowl and then leave, so don't get too attached. And you all hate me.” That kind of broke the ice a little bit, but the guys have been great.

Look at it this way: he is going to be badly injured at some point during this season. Maybe not career ending (nothing seems to be with this guy), but hurt badly enough that he'll be feeling that pain for the rest of his life. And it will be the Vikings, however indirectly, that will have helped cause him that pain.

Once more, and I really do swear this is true:

Okay, it's really rare I remember my dreams and I generally only remember part of them but I SWEAR TO GOD I actually had this dream last night: You know how in dreams you sometimes "are" a person, but you're seeing them from the outside too? Okay, so I'm Brett Favre. And I'm standing on top of an overpass, maybe eighty, ninety feet off the ground. I'm holding my kid and my wife is standing next to me. And I make the decision to leap off the overpass and I'm going to do it with my kid. I know it's a bad idea, but I'm going to do it anyway. So I leap off and my wife is screaming so I think "okay, gotta protect my kid" so I intend to roll on my back to take the brunt of the impact, but without thinking I actively push my child away and she flies off in another direction and Brett is screaming and his wife is screaming and his kid is screaming and then kid hits the ground and Brett/I hits the ground and we all die. Then I wake up.

Fantasy football is for suckas.

I never understood the point in fantasy football. It's not that I have a problem with the theory of "fantasy" football, I just have a problem with calling millions of people doing imitations of Charlie Casserly "fantasy."

...

So I gathered five women I've known over the years who happen to be sexy football aficionettes. They're John Claytons in Taraji Henson and Scarlett Johansson shells. None of them knew each other, but for years in many separate discussions, games, events and occasions, I've learned the level at which they love the game. But they've never been in the same room at the same time until now.

Alone with them? Me? Three hours? Talking nothing but football?

So to all you "fantasy" football fanatics, you can have your fantasy. I got mine.

"I feel good," Favre said, elaborating in his familiar wounded-warrior style. "I'm not going to lie to you. I'm not physically or mentally 100 percent. I don't know at 39 if I'd ever be 100 percent physically."

Favre also revealed he asked Childress to let him address his teammates “from the heart” on a number of subjects, a 10-minute speech he gave in the meeting room on Monday.

“I wanted the guys to know where I stood, and what I was here for,” Favre said. “Sort of the timeline of what happened, and things like that.”

Teammates expressed appreciation of his effort.

“He gave his apologies for all the commotion that was caused, even though it might not have been intentional by him,” tight end Visanthe Shiancoe(notes) said. “The frenzy, he apologized for the frenzy.”

Reactions varied on whether it was necessary. Shiancoe said it was.

“There was questions on everybody’s mind. I’m pretty sure it was different questions. He pretty much answered everybody’s questions. Cleaned up everybody’s wonders,” Shiancoe said.

"I was receptive to [sitting] last year," Favre said during a news conference. "When we finally did an MRI and found out I had a torn biceps last year, I felt like, with about four or five games left, that even though I was making some pretty good throws and some decent plays, I felt like I was doing the team more harm because I was missing on some throws."

Favre said that at the time, he addressed the situation with Jets general manager Mike Tannenbaum, offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer, and Brian Daboll, then the quarterbacks coach who is now the offensive coordinator with the Cleveland Browns under Eric Mangini.

Favre throws 3 TDs in Vikings win over Packers

By DAVE CAMPBELL (AP) – 14 minutes ago

MINNEAPOLIS — Brett Favre proved to the Green Bay Packers he has plenty of fire left inside, and in his right arm. Favre's first game against his former team was all fun for the Minnesota Vikings and all frustration for the Packers, as the graying quarterback connected for three touchdown passes and 271 yards in a 30-23 victory on Monday night.

Favre went 24 for 31, without a turnover. He did an awkward body bump with kicker Ryan Longwell, also a former Packer, and stayed poised in the pocket all night.

"Lot of fun. It was a big win for us," Favre said. "We did what we had to do."

guys, i don't want to scare you but in the week leading up to the game, brett favre DID NOT HAVE THAT MUCH FUN:

Rosenfels said the normally fun-loving Favre was pensive and withdrawn most of the week leading up to the game against the team he set every quarterback record for. "Not many jokes made this week,'' Rosenfels said. "He was studying a lot this week, wanting to make sure he had every read right. You know, before last week's game, I told him, 'You don't have to win it on your own. Punting's okay.'"

Merril Hoge is right.

I'm sure I'm not the only viewer in America who, after Farve completed his first touchdown last night, sat up a little straighter on the couch and said, "Hey, I think Brett just winked at me." And his smile. By the end, when he clearly knew she was doing well, it was so sparkling it was almost mesmerizing. It sent little starbursts through the screen and ricocheting around the living rooms of America. This is a quality that can't be learned; it's either something you have or you don't, and man, Brett Farve has it.

It had to be fun for the old-guy quarterbacks like Favre and Brees to outduel the younger generation in Eli Manning and Joe Flacco in Sunday's headline games. Flacco darn near brought the Ravens all the way back in the Metrodome, throwing for 385 yards and a pair of scores, but Favre has pretty much been in a zone of his own since winning that Week 3 thriller at home against San Francisco.

I remember a time when magazines like Sports Illustrated ran stories predicting that Green Bay is such an uninviting place that it would never again build a powerful team. I like how the Packers proved those stories wrong: They won the Super Bowl, stayed good for a while, and now they're good again! Anyway, I hope they win this week, but I won't be sad if the Vikings win.

I would be fine with the Vikings going to the Super Bowl if and only if Roger Goodell suspends both Favre and Jared Allen after an Arenas-Crittendon standoff, although I guess given Allen it would have to be with like, crossbows or spears instead of guns.

I don't think the Favre mania is quite as much this year. The dude just had some ankle surgery, it would be funny for him to go through all of that and then say 'nah I don't really want to play this year'.

When he finally does retire, he probably will come back a year later at like age 52.

righteous lecoq (J0rdan S.), Thursday, 5 August 2010 06:02 (nine years ago) link

i really hope brett doesn't retire -- two reasons

1 the league is more fun with him in it -- the vikings are a cool team, don't want to see them saddled with fucking sage rosenfels, their games vs green bay are inherently mega epic if favre is playing and of course nothing in the world is funnier than favreceptions -- i wouldn't trade anything in the world for favre's interception against the saints last year

2 it's hilarious to see espn falling all over itself in an effort to be ahead of the favre retirement story. they had people eulogizing his career within the second... it's like they put out a bat signal over bristol and all ex-players assembled in the studio to lick his nutsack. you would think that at this point they would play it cool with this kinda thing, but no, and it never gets old

Favre's return to the field comes on the one-year anniversary of the day he signed a two-year, $25 million contract with the Vikings.

Favre reportedly will get a pay raise for returning to the 2010 season. Favre, who was scheduled to make $13 million this season, will have his base salary bumped to $16.5 million, the (Minneapolis) Star Tribune reported.

Favre also will have $3.5 million in incentives added to his contract, based on postseason success, the Star Tribune reported, potentially boosting his 2010 salary to $20 million.

Anyone who views this Jenn Sterger character as anything but a transparent, empty-headed opportunist is giving her way too much credit. And now, of course every massage therapist who's ever been on the Jets payroll is courageously 'coming forward' to get their names in the press ($$$$$).

first of all, it's fucked up from the start for any man to send multiple unsolicited photos of his penis to a woman. this is sexual harassment. there's also a disgusting power dynamic in play, where favre, being a famous qb, thinks it's okay to sexually harass multiple female employees (if the accusations from the massage therapist are true) because he's the qb, and the women are objects of the team, and by proxy him. he obviously thought there were no consequences to him completely perving on pretty much any woman he came in contact with.

not to mention that to be all "well jenn sterger is a model who dresses sexily!" is, as poly points out, the same mindset as saying that rape victims in short skirts were asking for it. and if you actually believe that, than all i can say is fuck you.

xpost That clearly isn't what I'm saying at all - what I'm saying is that if she hadn't spurned him, this would have been considered (an admittedly icky) courtship. Not the kind I traffic in, mind you, but courtship nonetheless. The fact is she wasn't interested, and instead of respecting a man's privacy and relegating this to a giggle with friends at dumbass's expense, she uses it as social currency. I think that's the mark of an extremely fucked up person. Give her the benefit of the doubt all you want, but you may wanna get off your histrionic high horse a bit, dude.

It does not matter that Jenn Sterger’s on-full-display, fake breasts were her only qualification to land a job with the Jets. She should be afforded protection from harassment.

I don't love Deadspin, it's just sportsporn Fleshbot....but if this comes out on their side, as I suspect it might, this falls in line with what the Nat Enquirer did with the John Edwards affair/baby story.

I kind of wonder how long Brady and Manning will hang around.

Tom Brady will go one of two ways, he will get hurt and hang it up or he will walk out on top maybe a bit early. (YO TAKE A HINT WONDERBOY!)

Peyton Manning I can't figure, I could see him being a total crusty bastard and trying to play forever. He always has had that old grouchy vet thing going since he came into the league. The thing I really want to know is if the guy is so addicted to the game will he actually be a superstar that goes into coaching. I could see him as a college coach just so he can go back and beat the tar out of an 85 year old Steve Spurrier.

Ok, so Mr. Favre is probably done this time.

I'd imagine the bidding war has already begun between Fox, CBS, NBC, ESPN and the NFL Network on trying to get Brett to work on pre-post football.

I think Fox will lay out anything to get him, you know they want that oh shucks dude right there inbetween Howie Long and Terry Bradshaw.

Terry Bradshaw has pulled it off for 30 years. Dude Favre dropping shuck and jive about crazy stuff on the field would be gold.

It is way too easy money to turn down. Some of them are obviously not that good at it or don't like it, but most of the big stars at least try it for a bit (even Joe Montana and the Bus).

ABC News reports that two women are suing Brett Favre for sexual harassment after he made lewd passes at them while they were massage therapists for the Jets.

Christina Scavo and Shannon O'Toole filed suit in the Supreme Court of the state of New York on Monday. The suits allege that Favre text messaged another woman to "get together" with Scavo for Favre's pleasure. Scavo also alleges that Favre treated her like "a hanging slab of meat," asking for "a three-way" with the two women. Scavo's husband reportedly called Favre demanding an apology. Scavo and O'Toole say they were never offered work by the Jets again. Jan. 3 - 5:55 pm et

dude, given the lockout it's a given that SOMEONE or SEVERAL someones are gonna try to get him back in; he's as ready to go mentally and re: playbook as any new qb to a team would be and he can still chuck the ball (though often to the opposing team)
the only question is if he's really had enough.

man, that article is terrible

kinda hoping that Favre does come back. i don't hate him anymore. i remember the books that came out after his 'retirement' after the '07 season and just thinking how incredibly storied this guy's career was, and that now, here we are in a world where Favre has now "un-retired" three additional times, played for two more teams, nearly went on a Super Bowl run, and then got destroyed. Favre to the Eagles makes too much sense. Please let it be true.

frogbs, Friday, 29 July 2011 19:31 (eight years ago) link

I figure Fox, CBS, ESPN and NBC are probably loading up the armored cars to try and be the one to sign Favre to be a football talking head.

If you put Favre next to Terry Bradshaw on a counter talking football the "aw shucks" meter would be running in the red.

“I won't lie to you,” Favre said, “but there has been times once that season started — numerous times — that I thought I shouldn't have played, this was a mistake. But then after the season was over, and maybe even before — I think the last couple of games which I didn't play in and it'd been years since I hadn't played and watched from the sidelines, better yet in street clothes, that was the first time I'd ever done that — but it gave me a chance to really reflect and look around. There was no pressure to perform. I was just kind of watching.

“So I had a chance to really think and think in depth.

EVERYONE COOKING SCMABLED EGGS,CHEESE WITH TOASTER!! (forksclovetofu), Friday, 28 September 2012 14:58 (seven years ago) link

To put things into context look at last year. Rodgers sits a game and Flynn throws 6 TDs (a guy who apparently couldn't even beat out Russell Wilson for a starting job). Cutler gets knocked out and the Bears struggle to put up double digits. No QB's going to succeed when you only get 2 second to throw the ball and your only decent reciever is an aging Brandon Marshall.

yeah, i'm not calling a referendum on Cutler as a qb there, I'm just saying that in the system he's in right now, he sucks.

one year passes...

PROVO — For 20 years, Brett Favre captured the attention of pro football with his gunslinging, fun-loving attitude.

It’s a special weekend for Favre — along with seven other men — as they are being enshrined into the Pro Football Hall of Fame as a part of the 2016 class.

BYU first-year offensive coordinator Ty Detmer had a front-row seat for the start of Favre’s legendary career. From 1992-95, Detmer and Favre — both young pro quarterbacks at the time — played together in Green Bay under head coach Mike Holmgren, a former BYU quarterbacks coach.

“He played with passion. Early on, he didn’t know football that well, but he made plays,” Detmer recalled of his former teammate.

Favre's instincts to play the game, and his drive to compete, led him to a Hall of Fame-caliber career capped by a Super Bowl XXXI victory and three straight NFL MVP honors from 1995-97, an unprecedented feat.

Favre went on to a prolific career that included setting the NFL career marks for completions (6,300), pass attempts (10,169) and wins (186, tied with Peyton Manning). He's one of only two players — Manning being the other — to throw for over 70,000 yards (71,838). Favre also threw 508 touchdown passes, second only to Manning.

Detmer, meanwhile, played 14 seasons in the NFL, starting 25 games and playing for six different teams. Another Green Bay quarterback from that era, Mark Brunell, went on to a 17-year career and was named to three Pro Bowls.

Favre was known for having fun no matter the situation, whether it was on the field, in the locker room or away from the spotlight of the game.

“He was kind of a fun-loving guy who just loved to play the game, especially early when I was there his first four years in Green Bay. It was kind of anything goes,” Detmer said.

That included hijinks with his teammates.

“We did some things the night before the game playing goal-line offense with our center Frank Winters as the fullback and three of us as defensive line sitting there at the bed waiting for him to dive over the top,” Detmer said. “Holmgren probably would have killed us had he known we were doing that. He wouldn’t have killed Favre because he wanted him healthy, but the rest of us would have got killed.”
