Well since some people are eating their servings of crow I figured I'd grab my knife and fork and dig in. I did not in my wildest dreams see Favre playing as well as he did this year, especially the by far career low of 7 interceptions, but also the 33 tds and more than 4,000 yards. He had one of the best years of his career. I thought he'd be better than last year but no where near the level he reached. So I begrudgingly congratulate Favre, you cunting Viqueen, you proved me wrong.


For the record, I'm bitter not because I hate Favre (I don't) but because I hate the Vikings.

I'm a Favre fan and didn't see this coming. I was thinking more like 25 TDs and 15 INTs, and definitely nowhere near 4k yards.

Well guys, as much as I hate to admit it, Favre has done much better than I had thought also.
I was positive that he would "cave" by the end of the season.

Don't get me wrong, still not happy with Favre in purple, but I must give credit where credit is due.

It's not that I hate Favre so much, it's just that I hate the Packers! ::wink:



Anyway, since you all have the cojones to standup and be counted, tell ya what I'll bring the desert.....

i'm not surprised, too. i knew he would play very well with this high octane offense. but I'm glad we switched to a young qb, who puts even better numbers (compare the total, not only passing) on the board than favre and has 10 more years left in his tank.

I thought he would have a good year since wasnt suppose to have any cold games, interestingly the 2 cold games he dealt with they lost..

Before anyone jumps me, the Bears game they should have won

But Carolina was cold too and he did nothing

but all in all he had I think his best EVER season..And that I would have never seen coming

His numbers were really good this year but i'd definitely take him back in 94/95/96 over this season. His ability to elude defenders back then was something i've never seen before or after. I think the rule changes have helped him and everyone else in the league. With his elusiveness and absolute rocket arm back in the day, he'd be a 40+ td guy in this era with decent weapons. I mean, his arm is still pretty good but nothing like then when he was always fitting impossible passes into tiny holes. He cant do that anymore

Why did anyone think he was going to tank?
Was it playing his games in a controlled climate that did it?
Playing with one of the best RB's in the league?

I'm just not understanding it. It's the cold weather that does him in more than the duration of the season, we all witnessed it the last few years he was in GB.

Even though he's temporarily wearing the most pathetic uniform there is, I am glad for him he did very well.

Hmm, can't seem to find any thread where I wrote any predictions on how Favre would go this season. That's strange. Technically I guess I wasn't wrong about Favre then, but his performance this season is the stuff of legend, no doubt about it. But as 4packgirl says, just wish it wasn't with the Vikings.

I was never terribly emotionally invested in Barney once he retired the first time. I did not think he would be a good choice for the Vikings, not because I thought he would suck, but rather because I thought TJack was making progress on a very typical track for a young quarterback. In other words, I felt that TJack would have improved this year to the point that even a casual observer would not view him as a liability. We will never know.

As far as Favre goes, I kept waiting for him to have one of his bone-headed games, but it never materialized. The Vikes fans would like everyone to believe that this is due to a superior cast of characters that he never had in Green Bay. I say that is a bunch of nonsense. His offensive line is quite suspect in Minnesota. I reckon the threat of AD does help a lot, as everyone game-plans to stop that first, along with the under-appreciated contributions of Chester Taylor.

That doesn't explain most of Brett's border-line incredible performance throughout this season. I say border-line incredible because we have seen Brett cost us so many games over his career, and he is just not doing that in Minnesota. I give him major props for avoiding "Bad Brett" games.

This isn't over. I want another shot at those bastards, of which, Brett Favre is one of them. Sue me. I'm not a quitter.

I have never quit respecting him as a player.. but that doesn't mean I have to respect everything the guy does off the field.. including the locker room.

They beat a Giants team that packed it in.. and exploded on offense.. will that last?

Somehow I think there will be a second visiting of this Chilly vs Favre playcalling spat.. maybe even fueled by AP.
I think when there's enough will and aggression, there's no shortage of talent either.

That's what I thought, too. The Carolina game gave me hope, but then he bounced back in the second half against the Bears--in a cold weather game, even.

I thought he would wear out physically this season. The guy is 40 years old, after all, and he wore out at the end of last season. But the Vikings have been the perfect fit for him this year, with all of their weapons on offense.

I'm now down to my last hope, which is that he will go down in flames in the playoffs, just like he always did for us during the past decade.

Hopefully he goes down in flames in the NFC CG at the hands of the Green Bay Packers.

As I've said before, I hope the Packers win the Super Bowl, and Favre gets his 4th MVP. Of course I'd be perfectly happy if Aaron or Chuck got the MVP too.

Welcome back, Heather. I've missed you. :wave:
