Last night was another memorable Favre performance, but if you were only listening to the ESPN crew (Jaworski, Tirico, and Gruden) you may have thought Brett Favre was playing one on one with himself vs. his younger self in Minnesota. They brought out the full archives of Favre to show us that he was in fact once young. They talked like they’d leave their wives for him if he asked. ESPN’s bromance with Favre has reached a new level that I didn’t think could happen. Even on crucial plays for the Packers they’d still cut to Favre for a sideline shot. It was very important to show him kneeling on his “legendary knee” or scratching his “legendary stubbles.” All of the over hype made me actually hate the Vikings by the end of the game. I didn’t care all that much who won going into the game hoping to see a close divisional rivalry play out, but the bromance with Favre has made me into a Minnesota hater. Sure he was having a good game, I can’t deny that, but the Packers D was giving him 30 seconds to throw each time he dropped back. If any quarterback has that much time to sit there and look at every receiver he better find the open one. Hell, you could put JaMarcus’s corpse of a QB body back there, and probably put up 300 yards with that O-line performance last night! I wish Aaron Rodgers pulled a Tonya Harding on him when he was wishy washy on his first retirement, so we wouldn’t have to keep hearing about him. I guess we’ll just have to hope the Vikings ship sinks as fast as the Jets did last year, so the Favre bromance can end once and for all.

Is it true that should Ang Lee decides to do a sequel to ‘Brokeback Mountain’ , then instead of it being about a, ‘ homo erotic relationship’ between two cowboys? It’ll be about certain members of ESPN’s NFL analysts and their wantoned man-lust for Brett ….. i.e Chris Mortensen , Mark Schlereth and Merrill Hoge . Each of whom is prepared to ‘ bite the pillow ‘ and take one for the team – just as long as it’s Brett that’s servicing their needs . Way to go guys just simply taking one for the team. And boy how are they willing ever so much to take it all in a good deed. Suffice to say ….. they all want to say …..‘ I’ve been poled by Brett and I liked it ‘ !
Dropped this on the upcoming bout between Pavlik and Paul Williams.
I’ve Got Nothing But Love For You Brother But This Time Not Even Your Mama’s Going To Save You …….
Sooner or later they’ll be pleading with the church to beatify Favre as a first step towards sainthood. ‘Saint Brett of Gulfport , Mississippi’ . It somehow has a ring to it don’t you think ?

“wantoned man-lust” well put Alan….But Chapman, your title…I dunno, he’s going to go down as a top 10 QB of all time. Hell if he wins a Super Bowl this year, top 5.

Ok, maybe he’s better than God then, is that what you want it to say? I can’t really see God throwing a football 60 mph, so maybe your right the title is flawed. Favre is greater than God!

I don’t deny that Brett Favre has a great deal of talent. But were it anyone else who’d treated the Packers the way that he’s done over the past few years. The cries out there would be unanimous that the guy is an absolute a-hole . Instead he’s given a pass and treated as if his actions weren’t at all bad. That’s what I dislike about Favre !
But what’s even more absurd is the profoundly absolute as_s kissing that goes on within the halls of Foxsports and ESPN over the guy .
They could teach Clay Aiken and Ricky Martin a thing or two when it comes to homo-eroticism .
So the Jets have traded for Braylon Edwards ? They gave up a player and two draft picks for a guy who couldn’t catch a cold much less the swine flu. WTF ?
Mangini is just as dumb as he looks I guess ? But what does that say about Rex Ryan of the Jets ? Whatever he’s seeing in Edwards I just don’t get it. The guy is a malcontent who continues to bitch and whine whenever he doesn’t get things his way.

If the Vikes do make it to the Superbowl . Then the pressure will be greater than ever on Favre to lead them to the victory. If they fail then the blame will be laid squarely upon his and Brad Childress‘ shoulders.

I hope that’s NOT how it plays out…

[…] teams are polar opposites of each other. I’m no fan of the Favre 24 hour network, but this team is very good, and can’t afford to take anyone lightly. It doesn’t seem like […]

Joe Montana = #1
Favre in Top 10 for sure though.
But I agree, I’m tired of the man-love the media gives him. Every time he gets hit and goes down, if he gets up with a smile, all you hear is “Does this guy love this game or what?”
As if no one else appreciates playing the game of football. It gets old fast.
