    No brain scans to explain why he would throw against the grain making even the announcers wince?

    Scientists must have isolated the area that makes him throw the crucial inteception so often.

    I get so tired of people excusing his horrible across the body throw by saying he couldn't run. He WAS running on hte play. He was running to his right. All he had to do was run forward instead of to the right. He didn't throw because he felt he couldn't run. He threw because it is in his (and Bledsoe's) nature to force a ball, take chances and win or go home. Favre has been extraordinary lucky in his career, but every bad decision can't end up good. Evenetually things even out.

    Here's video of him not being able to run. All he could do was skip and jump up and down.

    YouTube - BRETT FAVRE INTERCEPTION (1/24/10)

    This youtube wasn't easy to find, either. I put in Favre interception and it said "too many entries, please refine your search".:D

    I hope he retires and then comes back with the Bears.

    if that's Favre's ankle (and, let's be honest, we don't know that it is), that's as butt-yugly an injury as I've ever seen and I'm amazed he could stand on it let alone play NFL football. would definitely help explain the pass/run decision at the end of the game.

    willing to be a lot of qb's look like that after the season.
    But no one takes pictures and gives it to the media. I hope he waivers all offseason then comesback. Then we can watch the media be played again.

    I wouldn't be shocked if ESPN already has a reporter down in Hattiesburg just waiting for anything to happen at the Favre Mansion..... which probably includes stalking the cleaning crew as well to get any information from them.

    While I in no way defend Brett Favre, and I'm glad NO won instead of the Vikings, he really didn't lose that game. The bonehead who was the 12th man in the huddle on the previous play knocked them out of field goal range and resulted in the desperate heave to try to move the ball closer. I am sure B(S)F was instructed to throw the ball to get them as close as possible for a FG try. The fact that he reverted to form and threw an INT across his body should have surprised no one on the Vikings side line.

    Agreed.

    I dislike the Colts a whole lot more than I dislike Favre's retirement antics. I think that he and the Vikings would have been a lot hungrier and would have had a lot better chance of beating the Colts than the Saints who needed OT, six turnovers and a couple of questionable penalties (plus the dumb one you reference) in their Dome just to get to the SB. I'd take Favre over Brees in the SB any day of the week.

    :yeahthat: Thanks for saying what I wanted to, sc.

    Another thing to consider: if that is indeed Brett's ankle (and I'm sure many on this board have had a similar injury), then there's no way on earth he could have played a game and shown few ill effects without some serious medication. I mean, he had to have some pharmaceutical help, right?

    Part of me wants to see him come back, just to watch the media tongue bath subside as his talents decline. It's got to happen by mid-season next year, right?

    every team he goes to gets really excited and the fans go nuts and then he blows it and they hate him. Living in Illinois, i want this to happen to improve the radio sports shows alone. And to aggravate my friends.

    Watch the vid. To the untrained eye it looks like he was running, hopping and jumping to his right. Only a true fan could discern that he indeed couldn't run at all.

    I get so tired of people blaming him for not running. He needed a lot more than just 2-3 yards, and there was no way he was getting much more than that with that ankle.

    To me that is what cost them the game, they should have had at least an opportunity to win in regulation.

    You had a radio bonanza in Cutler last season. This season is shaping up as a wallapalooza with Martz entering that fray...:rocker:
