How much longer can Favre keep on ticking?

Now that we all know Minnesota Vikings’ quarterback Brett Favre has had ankle surgery and we know where he’s vulnerable, some players have taken note.

New Orleans’ Saints safety Darren Sharper has publicly stated what a lot of defenders around the NFC North have to be thinking.

Well y’all seen Brett had surgery on that ankle we got after in the championship game. Come Thursday night 1st game. X marks the spot.

Sharper and the Saints will open the season at home against the Vikings on Sept. 9, in a rematch of the NFC Championship game. In their last meeting, the Saints terrorized Favre by blitzing him from all angles.

On a third-quarter play, Saints’ defensive end Bobby McCrary ripped Favre down by his injured ankle after a pass. McCrary was fined $20,000 for the play and the NFL said he should have been penalized for it, but it helped get the Saints to the Super Bowl.

If Favre plays the entire 2010 season, his consecutive games started streak will reach 300.

So, my question is this. What’s the over/under on the number of games Brett Favre starts this season with players knowing just where he’s vulnerable?

We all know Favre is an iron man from his days with the Green Bay Packers, but his body isn’t holding up like it once was and defenders obviously know where to strike. We’re setting the over/under at 13 games.

Any takers?
