Minniman, I also noticed that 31 point margin of victory. You are absolutely correct! Here's my 2 cents:
Dallas is calling Brett Favre classless. Let that sink in for a minute or two. Dallas
is calling Brett Favre classless. All of a sudden Dallas is concerned with class? Favre didnít commit homicide, traffic drugs or assault anybody. He threw a touchdown on 4th and 3 in the last two minutes of a playoff
game against a team which had been proclaimed the winner by just about everyone before the game had even begun.
To be fair, itís not just Dallas who is accusing Favre of being classless. Every Favre hater across America is making the same accusation. His touchdown pass is being called ďbush leagueĒ, classless, disrespectful, crossing a line.
Excuse me? Itís bush league and classless to throw a touchdown in an NFL playoff game in the final two minutes because the other team was expecting a run?
Itís disrespectful to score in the final minutes of a playoff game if youíre already ahead?
What exactly is the appropriate score differential in which a team can throw a touchdown pass in the final minutes of a playoff game? I have already sent an email to Emily Post inquiring about this etiquette, but I have not yet received a response.
Favre didnít cross a line here. Well, other than the goal line with the football that is. And those crying about it are the ones who invited Favre to do it. No, correction, they begged
Favre to do it!
For the past two seasons Favre haters have done nothing but criticize Favre as an old, washed-up, interception machine who falters down the stretch. Ya think that
could have had anything to do with Favre throwing that last touchdown pass? After all, Favre is a spiteful son-of- a-gun.
He wasnít rubbing salt in the wounds of the Cowboys. He was rubbing salt in the wounds of the haters, doubters and critics. And it must have stung like acid in the eyeballs of Favre haters to see Favre throw 4 touchdowns and no interceptions against a Dallas defense which was expected to lay Favre out.
Iím just waiting for Dallas to accuse Sidney Rice of being disrespectful for not notifying Dallas safety Sensabaugh that he had caught the ball for the first touchdown of the game. Was that also bush league of Rice to score on a 47 yard pass while the safety was still looking for the ball?
For what itís worth, does anybody even realize the significance of that final touchdown pass? The significance of a 34-3 win? I do and Iím sure Childress did as well. It meant a win by 31 points. Hey, you know who else won by 31 points? Thatís right, the Saints beat the Cardinals 45-14. You better believe the Vikings wanted to have a win at least as convincing as the Saintsí win over the Cardinals. That last touchdown wasnít Favre being classless. It was the team making a statement, and it doesnít matter one bit if nobody else understood the statement. All that matter is that they
So put that in your pipe and smoke it Dallas. You do know I mean the proverbial pipe, right?
