    Re: The Official Brett Favre Tribute Thread

    Brett Favre is my favorite football player of all time. He always put the team before himself and he always got it done when it counted the most. While you saw most guys half-assing it during training camp, he was going full bore. Thanks for all the memories, Brett. .

    As a NFL fan, I will say, thanks for all the memories. For most of your career you have provided us fans with something to marvel at each and every year.
    It's official. Marrdro's lost it. Thanks Marr, I know how hard that must have been for you.
    I am NOT here to provide good football insight or rational observations. I am an emotional 19 year old Viking fan and I expect you to adjust your expectations from my posts.

    Re: The Official Brett Favre Tribute Thread

    Because of his primadonna act and because of his high Interception total ... a lot of people have completely forgotten how good Brett Favre was in his prime (and even in his spectacular 2009 season here).

    I always hear all these people rating the likes of John Elway and Dan Marino so high ... but Brett Favre is at worst as good as these guys and at best considerably better.

    His career totals are astounding, and not just because of the streak. Remember, Cal Ripken had a great streak, but he is nowhere near the record in hits, home runs, etc. Brett Favre's numbers are great because he was great. He has the streak, because he was great.

    I HATE the Packers, so I am glad he only won the one Super Bowl, but in some ways that is a shame, because people always say stupid shit like "He only has one ring!" Well, that is more than any Vikings quarterback isnt it?

    He had the unfortunate luck of being in his prime and having his best teams when the league had GREAT Cowboys and 49ers teams. He finally supplanted them on the back end, but, if they had not be in the way in 93, 94 and 95, it is likely the Packers would have at least one or two more championships.

    For all the bashing he takes from the interceptions (and there were some bad ones) he threw interceptions less often than Warren Moon, Roger Staubach, Joe Namath, Jim Kelly, Fran Tarkenton, Dan Fouts, Bart Starr, Sonny Jurgensen, Johnny Unitas and Len Dawson ... among others.

    His greatness will always be downplayed by many, but rarely exaggerated as he rides into Canton the very first year he is eligible.

    I was against the idea of Favre at first, but after two seasons, one that was really special, of seeing him in purple. After watching him run out on the field on Monday night in sub-freezing temperatures when he had no reason to. I am glad to have called this all-time great a Viking.

    Re: The Official Brett Favre Tribute Thread

    I wasn't going to write anything here until I saw that the thread had been "douched"...

    No one was a bigger Favre hater than me. No one. I could go on for DAYS about what a turd Favre was when he was with Green Bay.

    But I also knew how good he was, and I recognized a long time back that if we ever had the opportunity to get him in Purple, we'd be idiots not to.

    Obviously, this season didn't turn out as we'd hoped (except for Chiller being fired), but that doesn't change my opinion of what Brett Favre added to this team.

    Sure, he made mistakes on and off the field. But who hasn't?

    What I wanted to see most was Favre-to-Moss...and we almost did. Of course, Chiller screwed that up by being a dillrod.

    But in the end, despite the fact that Favre will now retire a Packer(I'm willing to bet on it), I'm grateful for the 2 years he gave us.

    We almost got there.

    Thanks Brett.

    Your welcome my friend. I did have another paragraph, but I deleted it. Probably for the best.

    In the end, its over.

    Ditto. Almost word for word. Thanks, Caine. LOL


    Personally, I don't think there is intelligent life on other planets. Why should other planets be any different from this one?
