Poetic Justice?

7 5

My pussy hurts.

A lot of attention has been paid to whether quarterback Brett Favre will be in the starting lineup for the Minnesota Vikings this weekend.

Favre fractured his ankle in the Vikings’ loss to the Green Bay Packers, last Sunday. He wore a walking boot until Thursday and he hasn’t practiced yet this week.

On top of that, Favre hasn’t played well, this season. He has 10 interceptions compared to only seven touchdowns and the Vikings are 2-4. Several talking heads have called for Vikings coach Brad Childress to bench Favre because of his poor play, regardless of his health.

Of course, Favre runs the Vikings and says if he can play, he’s going to play.

Let’s be honest, though. The combination of Favre’s fractured ankle and shitty play don’t bode well for him starting, which would end his consecutive games streak at 291.

Favre says the streak isn’t important to him, but anyone who’s paid any attention to Brett Favre over the years knows that’s a load of crap, which brings me to this point.

If Favre’s streak ends this week, it will be the Green Bay Packers — the organization he had to get revenge on, the organization he held hostage summer after summer, the organization he stabbed in the back — who ended it.

    I love the post, but you overlook some significance, the streak started at Lambeau and ended there, thats poetic justice.

    Looking at TJack’s last six games vs Favre’s the Queens may just improve by benching Brett.

    What would it say about Childress as a Head Coach to allow Favre to play over Jackson, for one Favre hasnt played well when relatively healthy. Even more importantly what does it say to your QB of the future that you would prefer to start a 41 year old gimpy grandfather over him.

    This is exactly the reason the Packers let him go, and why the Vikings will forever be pathetic losers!!!! They just had to make headlines by signing Favre and now they have to live with all the drama he brings, and with all the money they have thrown at this franchise in attempt to win now they have rendered themselve irrelevant for a long time to come.

    Adrian Peterson is about to find out what it was like for Barry Sanders for so many years. Minnesota is the new Detroit or atleast will be very soon!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      AP is still on his rookie contract I believe. If the Vikings become Detroit West, he doesn’t have to resign. They’ll probably franchise him, however.
