here it is


Quote:
Peter King of Sports Illustrated, NBC, and Sirius NFL Radio addressed the question of whether Vikings quarterback Brett Favre can make it through a full season in one piece, despite making it through seventeen straight years without missing a start.

Said Favre to King after Monday night's preseason game, "Peter, I just don't know."

King pointed out that Favre has a partially torn rotator cuff, possibly a cracked rib, and sore ankles. (Pete must have forgotten to mention that Favre also has swine flu and polio.)

And King has sage advice for Vikings coach Brad Childress -- if/when the team leads by 14 or more points in the second half of any game, the Vikes should get Favre out and let him rest.

The fact that Childress allowed Favre to stay in a meaningless game on Monday night -- and throw a low block on a Wildcat play -- might be a sign that Chilly isn't as worried about keeping his superstar signal-caller safe as Chilly should be.

This is a patently absurd question. Anyone who didn't believe he had what it took to make it through a 16-week season wouldn't (or shouldn't) try out for a roster slot. None of us knows what tomorrow will bring, much less the next four months.

A far more relevant question would be "Brett, if the time comes when you can no longer perform to standard, will you -- for the good of the team -- have the integrity to step aside, break your starting streak, and let someone else take snaps behind center?"

Now that would be an interesting discussion to hear.

Favre can go all season and even playoffs but he does not have the stamina anymore to to give 100%. That is the reason why the Packers wanted him to retire and keep him retired. I respect the man's record but it's time to call it quits. He is hurting his legacy and I am sure he does not care about that but the Packers fan did.

Of course he wouldn't IMO. As much as he would say "aww, shucks, I don't care about no records"...HE DOES! Besides, we found out the last 5 games of last season that he wouldn't.

Legacy? That thing is dead and buried.

yep. why didn't he just walk away after the 07-08 season was over. the packers were gonna retire his number last season but he ruined it. i hope we kill those viqueens every game we play em.

Favre wants the all time consecutive game streak. And revenge on Ted Thompson. Not necessarily in that order.
And we all know he has more authority in running the Vikings than Chilly.

He at one time said the consecutive start streak meant a lot to him

PLAYBOY: How did you become addicted to Vicodin?
FAVRE: You want to play. You don't want to give the other quarterback a shot at your job. I also have a streak going. I have played 80-some games in a row, the most in the league. The record is 118 and I plan on breaking it. I never took painkillers on game day. People think I was playing on them. I would like to see anyone take a couple Vicodin and try to play football. Shoot, you can't walk a straight line.


BTW, read that article in its entirety,might discover some thing you never knew

FAVRE: Winning another Super Bowl. Going into the Hall of Fame. I expect to be in the Hall of Fame. But mostly I hope that in 20 or 30 years people will say, "That goddamn FAVRE, you had to watch yourself around him. He'd throw ice or put something in your jock, but on Sunday that son of a bitch was ready to play."


I guess the Vikings and Bears fans were right. We were warned about his ego very early on. Well, Vikings fans BEFORE Favre joined their "team" that is and they cowardly jumped ship from hate brett to suckle brett.

Favre himself states he will probably not be able to play all 16-games.


Favre says he 'may not' be an ironman this year

So, if he doesn't think he could play all 16 games, why the hell did he even bother starting another season?!?!?!?!

If I were a player on the Vikings I would be horrified at what Favre is going to do to my season. I see nothing good coming from him playing this season. I say that with confidence.

If it was a Favre "suck up" piece,

Wow, I can't believe the cinicism going on here.

It is a legitimate question posed to Favre considering his age. It is a legitimate article places in a legitimate thread on this forum.

A couple of interesting points in one of the articles. Favre addressed the situation in NY. Said he, Mangini, and the GM decided to continue playing and that he was open to being sat down last year as he is this year.

Two, he never said he was "Worried". that is words put in his mouth by the poster of this thread. He said he didn't know. He said he didn't know the first year he was ever in the league.

For those that "suck up to him" there are certianly an even amount that are eager to chime in at any point just to shove the negativity down his and everyone else's throat.

Do all of you know that you will live through the day? no one can say for sure. Therefore, by this threads comments, you must be "worried" about it. so should your significant others rue the fact that you are with them?

I think and this is just my opinion, that the whole comment about 'i didnt know if id make it through my first year' is a wash. It's stating the obvious. Personally, I think it was a dumb question to ask. No one knows the future.

If Brett was not confident he could make it all 16 games, he wouldn't come back. If he was unsure to the point of reasonable doubt, it would be inconsiderate for him to play.

I don't believe that to be true. Have I lost some respect for Brett, the man? Yes, because of his contradictions. With that said, Brett states his mind, how it is at that current time of the question. Which is also something I admire about him.

Fact is, Brett sells, Brett gets page views, Brett gets our attention, therefore Brett gets questioned up the ass about the stupidest shit for any half ass writer to twist it around into a damn story.


Face it, Brett is still playing, for the Packers rival and is nearly 40 years old. Get over it, get past it. And I really REALLY wish the "journalists" would stop taking the easy way out and STOP using Brett to help give them a story. In my opinion, they are taking advantage of Brett and his openness.

No, Brett is not innocent in all of this. Not at all. But understand Brett is just answering questions that are being asked of him. Surely if you had people asking you hundreds of questions all of the time, eventually you'd say things that did not shine a positive light on you as well.

Packers have a bright future with Rodgers.
Vikings have Brett in the twilight of his career.

Let's move forward. Bears. Packers. Sept 13th. BE THERE!

Man, the first page of this thread fills up my entire computer screen! My finger hurts from having to scroll side to side...an act that it's not used to doing. I'm more of a vertical movement kinda guy.
