I received a humorous e-mail Sunday afternoon from Don Yee, agent to Tom Brady, and he's another New England fan who has become a little sensitive to criticism. But I beat Don to the punch.
In the second half of the Packers-Vikings game, with Adrian Peterson on the sidelines and Minnesota facing its first shutout in the long history of this rivalry, I was wondering why Brett Favre was still playing. I told Howie Long in the Fox studio that Green Bay was running up the score on the poor Vikings. Why would they do this? Why did Favre need to still be in the game, throwing for another touchdown and in the fourth quarter?
I've been critical of all those Brady fourth-quarter touchdown passes this season, a couple that I thought were unnecessary considering the condition of the opponent. Coaches insist that no lead is safe, but with Brooks Bollinger throwing passes and with no Peterson, the Vikings were no threat to ever catch the Packers. Heck, Green Bay has a very good defense. Hence, the e-mail from Brady's guy.
Aaron Rodgers finally relieved Favre in the final five minutes, but he should have been in there sooner. Favre has enough touchdown passes to last him a lifetime.

Re: Foxsports mentions GB running up the score
Where are the ESPN talk shows and news articles on this!?
Brett Favre and the Packers are classless! They are despicable villains.
