    Crap.

    Jackson is a mobile Quarterback who throws a nice deep ball. Not saying he is great, or even good, for that matter, but I think he is more dangerous than Favre at this point.

    Childress: Favre in walking boot, has stress fracture | ProFootballTalk.com

    I bet he plays (at least starts). I want him to play. I want the defense to get a few more turnovers.

    BTW, if Jackson ends up playing, the Pats better prepare for the naked bootleg. I remember the last year Jackson started, Childress called that play about 15 times a game. Nothing like taking away half the field away from an already limited QB.

    As much as I hate Favre, the one positive he brought was forcing Childress to not be completely predictable and unimaginative.

    That's seriously terrible news. The Vikings have a lot of talent--they'll be much more dangerous without Favre effing it up.

    There is no way Favre doesn't fight tooth and nail with the coaching staff to play. So hopefully he does.

    Re: Lord Favre has a fractured ankle

    I thought this might happen. He really did look bad yesterday.

    I guess he's now got a use for all those joke walkers and canes people keep sending him.

    Be prepared for the naked bootleg to the left (or is it right). Childress runs the same play with Jackson at least 15 times a game.

    Actually, the correct title for this thread should be Brett Favre has a broken ankle, and he is a horse's (_._)

    :D

    Chilly will probably let him get one snap in for the streak.

    Damn....

    Was really looking forward to seeing Favre play next week....

    Knowing full well that the Patriots were going to make this game a living hell for Brett.

    Re: Lord Favre has a fractured ankle

    Absolutely. Jackson is no slouch. All things considered, probably a better QB than Favre is[was] right now.

    As others have said, last night's pathetic performance, Chilly's throwing him under the bus, and a gimpy ankle all added up to a scenario where we might have put Favre under for good.

    His act has worn thin with the Vikes and Tavaris is going to be a breath of fresh air and a spark for them IMO.

    Well his status at this time is unknown, he still might play. But i doubt it.

    Re: Lord Favre has a fractured ankle

    Hahaha, a stress fracture is going to cause him to miss time? I know he's an old man, and has a reputation for being a toughguy, but you play through stress fractures. They're right up there with a broken hand in terms of things that sound bad but are completely easy to play through. Get it taped up, take the shot and put your hat on. Amazing how he is already making excuses for completely sucking.

    Re: Lord Favre has a fractured ankle

    Can't see how he can take the field with a broken ankle...but with Brett, you never know....

    Maybe he'll load up on painkillers :rocker:

    Re: Lord Favre has a fractured ankle

    He might be happier without Favre.

    On a side note, he seemed pretty unhappy during the game with some of the coaching decisions. I expect that will be a huge adjustment for him.

    Re: Lord Favre has a fractured ankle

    he'll play, betcha. farve has started games for 20 years with bad injuries and he always bounces back. you really think this is the game he sits? doubt it, he'll be there

    but i agree with T.jackson, i'd rather Farve play honestly. Jackson isnt a bad QB
