Just finished watching a quick fastforwarded PVR of the Vikes game. Unreal drive with a minute, 30 seconds left from own 20 yard line.

The old man still has it on some level, thats why the Vikes still wanted him. Anyone that still thinks Jackson is a better option is in denial. I hate the Vikings and hope they go 0-13 from now on but anyone that thinks they didn't do the right thing by grabbing Favre is nuts.

But overall, watching that drive, it hit me, he's 39, almost 40 and he's still got "it". Last year even he had "it", 8-3 before the injury. It is pretty clear now those last 5 games were due to the injury because he looks very good this year. Sure, he could break down at any point and thats the risk you take with an old guy but until then, enjoy it boys, he's something special.

Last year he only looked good apprently because of the O-line and Thomas Jones, I guess this year its because of AP and Harvin? I don't know. Maybe its all a just concidential as a lot of people believe but I think personally, he really just still has "it".

I may not agree with everything the guy does or says, I might not like the way he plays the see saw game in the offseason, and I certainly don't like the team he plays for, but....

The guy can still play this game.. the Niners made Favre beat them but keeping Peterson somewhat in check..

That throw was money.. can't take a thing away from it. Period.

Now let the hype and media games begin for this week..

I agree, this week is going to be pretty annoying in terms of the media and I like Favre. Though it seems the general media is pretty negative on him, i.e. Terry Bradshaw hates him now.

But it will be nice to see some "experts" eat crow about how Favre couldn't throw downfield anymore. That was a 50 yard strike if you include the touchdown area.

Also, as I put in NFC North area, overall the Vikes don't scare me. They're very beatable.

I dunno what 'it' is.. but I like 'it'.

Yeah, the Vikings are beatable.. I don't think anyone is going to deny that. They played close games for 3 quarters against the Browns/Lions. By the end of the game, they turned it up. Then, against a very good, very solid 49ers team, they took it to the wire. Every team is beatable. Even the Giants (remember last weeks game against the 'Boys?).

I don't think the Vikings goal is to scare any team. I think it's to play a tough, hard nose football with a dash of trickery and speed. So far, it's working.. Even against a tough, hard nosed football team.

My feelings on him are well documented, so I won't get into it...but that was vintage Favre. Buying time and getting it to the receiver to make a play. Well done, ya pole smoker!

I think Adrian is going to run wild over us and Favre will throw for something like 140 yards with short dump off's. I haven't liked the idea of this game for awhile.

No faith! If we shut down Peterson it's a wrap.. We have the best secondary in the league. Our o-line also can't give up more than 2 sacks. I'm not too worried but it's certainly going to be a good game.

If we do beat the Vikings, we'll have a fairly nice lead in the division with all the tiebreakers. But it's still too early in the season for sweeping pronouncements, obviously.

60???? He was standing on the 39 yard line when he let her buck add 10 yards for the end zone. I know I'm just a rube from North Dakota but something doesn't equate.

Anyway, had Butterfingers Dre Bly held on to his pick six on the previous drive the papers in Minneapolis would be calling for Brett's head tomorrow.

Kudos to Brett and congratulations to the Vikings. The Niners were just Favred but they know all about that from our rivalry in the 90's.
