But they still stopped there. That's my point. Obviously they weren't giving Favre the keys to the Packers organization.. So why is the view of Chilly going to Mississippi (I hate spelling that name, BTW) indicitive of him handing the keys to the Vikings organization?

LOL.. I think you need to go back and check my views on the Saints game.. I thought some were just as pathetic as Allen's.

The double standard in this case is thinking Allen's were fine and bitching about the Saints.. lol.

BTW.. you can't throw that accusation the Packers way.. be barely got close to Favre in two games. ;)

Point is.. Allen was in error on judgment on those hits.. but then complained about low blocks.. double standard whining bitch. ;)
I think when there's enough will and aggression, there's no shortage of talent either.

Well, truth be told I don't remember much posts, if any, from that time frame. Obviously I was in a midst of a mental wipe.. Defragging my brain so to speak. I'll believe it when I see it. =)

I don't blame Allen for his actions. I played the same way. Never got close enough to get a late hit, but if I were in those situations that Allen was in; things wouldn't have went differently. I'm not a dirty player. I don't blame him for being emotional about the low hit on him either. Don't think he should have thrown the fit he did (I would have sucked it up and schooled that OL the next 8 plays), but fact is, it was a low hit. Did the that OL TRY to take him out? I don't think so. But I'm going off memory from what? 2, 3 years ago?

Bottom line, Allen was justified in his bitchings... despite his propensity of getting fined / penalized for late hits (BTW, they weren't illegal for being low hits in those days).

I get your point I really do, but to do it at that point to get ejected? Wont help your team..

Since it was Brett that was getting the punishment he should have went and done everything you asked..

I think that would have sent the message right? Although he would have been ejected, but as you said it doesnt matter


I think the answer to this dilemma is going after their quarterback the same way. Seems to work in baseball. Bean a guy, and the opposing pitcher retaliates.

I didn't say it was, nor do I think it is.

The entire scope of everything the Vikings are doing ... I think is giving too much power to Brett.

View it from one of the other 52 men in the locker room.

You and Dakota should form a therapy group. Not for his apparent attempt at ending Schaub's life, but the double standard for cheap shots at a QBs knees (shitting bricks when Allen gives a dirty hit, but not a peep when Favre gets them throughout an entire game)

:thumbright:


If 93 and I start a group, it isn't going to be for therapy, it is gonna be a gang designated to convert dilusional Viking fans into reasonable Viking fans by any means necessary. Guess what slapnuts, you get invitation #1. Got your Ritchie Blackmore glasses all cleaned for the season, I see.

If Favre gets taken out this season, he has more than earned the anger of the player delivering the hit. I have said over and over that I do not want to see Brett carted off. Brett is our Prodigal brother - he has been lost for several years now, but when he finally returns we will accept him back.

What does that have anything to do with an illegal late or low hit? Nothing? Ok then.

It's obvious you never played on the defensive side of the football. We talked about killing the ballcarrier. Yes. KILLING him. We are all murderous wretches.

I was hoping to draw you out of hiding.

Also would like to let you know that you won't find a more reasonable Viking fan than myself. There's a lot like me, but I have yet to meet a guy that's more objective than myself.

Just because you and 93z have a romanticized 'Camelot' vision of the game of football, doesn't mean that's how it was meant to be played.

I said how about him saying it

Meaning is it okay for him to say that (given the fact no one has really ever said that in print before) at least not that I seen

That ties into the whole illegal hit and such

The entire scope of what the Vikings are doing and have done is under the banner of lets get to the Super Bowl.. AT ALL COSTS. I can't blame them. This is the most proactive team I remember seeing at getting to the big game in my lifetime, so I'm obvioiusly 100% ok with it.

I honestly think people are losing it if they think the players in the locker room are unhappy with how the teams being run ATM. They know the costs as well.. Just look at the age of some of those guys.. P.Will, Hutch, Whinny, etc.

I think it's kind of funny too that we have lots of fan's saying Ted doesn't open up enough to get players in. Then Vikings go balls out and get criticized for it.

Really? I've seen MANY NFL films interviewing old school defenders.. and they talked a LOT worse than what Allen said. Allen sounded like a bunny rabbit compared to those guys. Not to mention when I played football, some of the stuff we said.

No it doesn't. Because sacking a QB from behind isn't an illegal hit.

wow technical much?

Show me in print or on tv when the last time a player said he wanted to bury his helmet in the spine? in the MODERN era...( or something similarly violent)

FYI I am PERFECTLY fine with the statement.....

But the game as we know it NOW..that is not a common thing...and when the statement did come out I recall didnt go over to well here..

And as Zero has said it is illegal

but lets just pretend it isnt a bad thing to bury a helmet in a spine

LOL.

Well, I'm glad he's back. Not bitter about him playing for you guys either. We replaced a Hall of Famer with an elite QB. The drop off wasn't that noticeable, and it may not even have been a drop off at all. They produce exactly the same stats pretty much. The only real difference between Rodgers and Favre is from 1 yard out, Favre throws it in and Rodgers runs it in.

Now as for the Vikings, good. I'd rather earn my wins. You know with TJ or Sage, we'll sweep you guys. Now it will be a good fight.

I just find it amusing that the Vikings had to have a sleepover to get Favre to come back. I'm wondering how it went down. Did they stay up all night and have a pillow fight then play charades until Deanna kicked them out of bed so she could sleep?

Deanna doesn't strike me as a women that would enjoy sex, yet alone a gang bang, but then again she is a southern girl. Northern girl says you can have it, but a southern girl says ya'll can have it.

Formo, you think you are laughing at us! Only in Minnesota is this situation looked at as "the way things are done." Maybe that's the angle the Vikings are after to save the team - look so pathetic at business operations so that no respectful city will take them.

I would love to see you document this. If I said something like that, I am sure my statement was far more nuanced than your rough summary of it.

Come now, you can do better than this laughable statement. You're posting on a Green Bay Packers fan site -- of course there is bias here. There's nothing wrong with being biased, as long as one admits one's bias.

And as I've said before, so I'll say again. I couldn't care less where Brett Favre plays, so anyone who accuses me (even by implication) of bitterness can kindly go shove it.

I have to think more than a few defensive coordinators will be weighing the cost/benefit ratio of a few well-timed, well-placed questionable hits (e.g., before the 50-yard line, certainly not in the red zone). If you can force Favre into giving up two or three costly turnovers, you will beat him, even if you give up, say, 60 yards in personal-foul penalty yardage.
