Ladies And Gentlemen The 1,000 lb Gorilla Is Back In The Room And His Flatulence Is As Great As Ever ………… Welcome Back Brett Favre …………

You can’t blame them for trying but surely the Minnesota Vikings and their front office knew what they were letting themselves for , when they signed Brett Favre to what they felt was a favorable two year ‘$24 million deal’ ? Now with the team’s season having been so abruptly ended in the ‘NFC championship game loss’ to the New Orleans Saints. The organization must now await a decision from the veteran quarterback as to whether or not he will indeed return to the NFL and to the team for ‘an astonishing twentieth season’ .

Who couldn’t have envisioned this particular ‘soap opera’ starting all over again ? And if those as_holes within Bristol, Connecticut, start to chime in that…… ‘it is Brett’s right to once again walk away and take time to think things over’. Then I’ve got these nine words to state to you all…..’ f_ck you and the horse you rode in on ‘ ! It may well be Favre’s right to take time away from the game to think things through but it ‘certainly does not give him the right to hold another organization hostage’ while he acts like a petulant school child ! We’ve seen this twice before , with his retiring and un-retiring to return to the game. What’s he now become ? A rabbit that can be pulled out of a hat repeatedly as part of a magic trick to entertain the most discerning fans of the NFL ? If that is the case, then can be sawed in half and then not be put back together again ? That’s a trick that I’d love to see concerning Brett Favre at this particular moment in time. Because when it’s all said and done this whole shtick of his , has become tired and played out ! If anything, it borders on being insulting to the fans , to the game of football and the entire NFL !

Vikings ponder Favre’s future with team while coping with defeat

Eden Prairie, Minn. — One after another, the Minnesota Vikings mentioned how much they enjoyed playing with Brett Favre.

Will the fun will be one season and done?

The devastated Vikings gathered Monday at their practice facility for exit physicals and meetings with coaches, two weeks sooner than they hoped because of an epic overtime loss to the New Orleans Saints in the NFC Championship Game.

Despite all the other intriguing in-game developments and offseason storylines, the day-after focus fell on the 40-year-old Favre’s future. He didn’t appear in the locker room at Winter Park while it was open to reporters, but his demeanor after the game and responses from teammates suggested that he’s leaning toward quitting.

For now.

“In a situation like this, I really don’t want to make a decision right now based on what’s happened, because I do know the year could not have gone any better, aside from us not going to Miami,” Favre said Sunday night at the Superdome. “I really enjoyed it, to be honest. Just wondering if I can hold up, especially after a day like today.”

Favre took a beating by the Saints, and the ankle injury he suffered during the third quarter was another reminder of how draining the game has been for him mentally and physically down the stretch of his 19-year NFL career.

The championship game itself was exhilarating to watch as ‘both teams’ gave each other the very best that they had to offer. Favre’s counterpart,Drew Brees, showed why on his seasonal form alone and then his postseason play, the he has to be now considered an ‘elite quarterback’ in the NFL. On my scorecard, he’d be considered one of ‘the top two or three’ in the entire league ! I’d certainly now place him alongside the likes of Tom Brady and Peyton Manning, most definitely ! And if the game was on the line then I’d certainly choose him over an error prone and gunslinger in the mold of Brett Favre. Want further proof of that fact then just look at the asinine play of the Vikings’ quarterback in the waning moments when he saw fit to throw an interception into double coverage. I’m not averse to taking risks but there’s a time and a place for doing it and at that time it was just wasn’t worth it all. Not in the waning moments of the game when many of your teammates around are weary not only physically but also mentally. He could’ve played out the clock in regulation and then take it from there. But no, that’s not the way that Brett Favre likes to do things at all . If he’s not the center of attention then it’s just not worth it for him to be the focus of everyone’s gaze.

While I’m an admirer of Favre as a player when he’s at the top of his game. My sole problem with him , is his persona away from the field and how he conducts himself. Many consider him to great player and there’s a case to made that he’s amongst the all-time greats to have played the game. As to whether or not he can be considered to be a great teammate , then we’ll have to await the testimonies of those forthcoming who’ve played alongside him over the years. But it’d appear that the player has his ‘supporters’ and ‘detractors’ amongst his peers within the NFL. And this was certainly evidenced when he departed from his two prior stays within the league, first with the Green Bay Packers and then with the New York Jets. Though the fans there in Green Bay, Wisconsin, still see him as a football deity (god), while others view him something of a betrayer of their trust. Personally, I feel that Favre is a little of both but I’m liable to come down on the side that his behavior can be seen as nothing more than that of an immature and often well though out individual who also happens to be amoral. Favre does his thing and to hell with what anyone thinks until it’s time for him to tell his side of the story. I wonder what the likes of both the Packers’ and Jets’ front office staff must be thinking right about now ? I’ve no doubt that they’re indeed chuckling over this, while considering the Vikings’ present fate !

Favre left limping away from another title game loss; future unclear

New Orleans — Battered and beaten, Brett Favre limped off the field for perhaps the final time.

His head down, the pained look on his face was brought on as much by a head-scratching turnover as it was by a bone-crunching hit from Bobby McCray.

With the NFC title game tied, the Minnesota Vikings close to field goal range and mere seconds left, Favre made the kind of mistake he had avoided all season. He committed the No. 1 no-no for an NFL quarterback when he threw the ball late and back over the middle toward Sidney Rice, and Tracy Porter stepped in front to intercept the pass Sunday.

New Orleans won the coin toss in overtime, and before Favre could take the field, Drew Brees drove them into position for Garrett Hartley’s winning field goal that gave the Saints a 31-28 victory and their first Super Bowl berth.

After the game, a glassy-eyed Favre had scratches on his nose and bruises on his forehead. He said he wasn’t quite ready to make a decision on his future just yet.

“I know people are rolling their eyes or will roll their eyes,” Favre said. “In a situation like this I really don’t want to make a decision right now based on what’s happened because I do know the year could not have gone any better aside from us not going to Miami. I really enjoyed it, to be honest.

“Just wondering if I can hold up, especially after a day like today. Physically and mentally. That was pretty draining. I am going to go home, a couple of days and just talk it over with the family.”

The interception was a crushing end to an inspiring performance by Favre, who hobbled around the field for the entire final period after a hit by McCray put him on the trainer’s table with a left ankle he thought might be broken.

Having lost 31-28 to the Saints in the NFC championship game played at the Saints’ home venue of the Louisiana Superdome , in-front of a sold-out crowd and millions of viewers on broadcast television. It has become apparent that with this loss we may well have seen Brett Favre for the very last time in an NFL uniform. As we all know Favre marches to the beat of his very own drum. And that drum is about to beat at an ever increasing decibel over the ensuing months. And the likes of ESPN’s Mark Schlereth , John Clayton , Chris Mortensen and Chris Berman will make sure that the noise emanating from that drum will be heard loud and clear across the tv airwaves. Never mind the fact that the sports talk radio hosts will make this ‘the daily gristle’ that their listeners can chime in on. And those within the denizen of ESPN will continue to show support for Brett Favre earnestly, without ever questioning the player’s motives or his behavior , as to how he has treated or continues to treat many of the organizations that he’s played for over the course of his career. Fu_k me but is it really going to get this bad throughout the entire NFL off-season ? I sincerely hope not !

Minnesota Vikings quarterback Brett Favre wipes his face as he leaves the field following their loss to the New Orleans Saints the NFC Championship NFL football game in New Orleans, Sunday, Jan. 24, 2010. The Saints defeated the Vikings 31-28 to advance to the Super Bowl against the Indianapolis Colts. It may  well  have  been the  <strong>  last  professional  game played  by   Favre in an  NFL  uniform. </strong> But  somehow this  all  could  turn  out to  be  more of  the  <strong>'usual dramatic soap opera' </strong> that we've come use  to  seeing  from  Favre  over the  last  couple  of  years .   photo appears  courtesy  of   Associated Press/ Morry  Gash .......

My own wish is to see Brett Favre walk away from the game if this is to his final time, make an emphatic statement that this it and he’s finally done ! No fu_cking us all around with his …..will or won’t he bulls_hit ! It’s enough that we’ve had to put up with this repeatedly and see Brett act like a woman who’s on her menstrual cycle, undecided as to what she wants or when she wants it. For God’s sake just shut the f_ck up make the statement and then march your a-s off back down to Kiln, Mississippi, to be with your family. They at this moment in time, I’m sure need you more than the game itself needs you ! We’ve the years of glorious memories that you’ve given . So why now continue to tarnish your legacy with your childlike behavior ? You’re more than that aren’t you ? Or are you ? Would my summation then be correct , as I’ve characterized you in the title of this piece ? Are you indeed ‘……………The 1,000 lb Gorilla In The Room With Flatulence And Your Act Is As Great As Ever ? Either walk away or come back but if you intend to do so , then don’t hold an organization and its fans hostage as you’ve done repeatedly before. It’s undignified and beneath you as a human being !

Perhaps this song personifies Brett Favre’s situation as to his post-season meltdowns over the last few years ? Bone Thugs N Harmony ‘I Tried So Hard’ feat’g Akon. Granted, Brett could never be considered to be a black man but he’s now the one who’s said to be creating the misery within the NFL. As this whole scenario will no doubt overshadow the NFL’s Pro Bowl game and the NFL’s showcase event itself , the Superbowl to be held in Miami , a week from this upcoming Sunday.

      If I’ve got to spend now and between the ‘Pro Bowl’ (which I won’t be watching as it’s about as interesting as having a rectal examination) and the Superbowl listening to all of the diatribe going on about Favre. I swear that I’ll give up watching or even listening to anything to do with the NFL altogether. The whole frigging world doesn’t evolve around what time he ‘eats’, ‘drinks’ and take a ‘sh_t’ for that matter . But these ‘as_holes’ within ESPN and within the print tv media would have you believe otherwise.

      This may well be about the only time I’ve ever agreed with Stephen A Smith on any subject.

      I’ll take time out to do write , discuss and read about other things which I believe will have far more merit than Brett Favre does on the within sports’ landscape.

      That’s the problem as I don’t want to spend the whole damn summer talking about this one lame ass subject. There’ll be a slew of things far better topics to be discussed , plus by June the World Cup will have started in South Africa. And I expect to give that my undivided attention.

      I’ll be preparing a rundown of the event itself, as a lead-up for the uninitiated, as a way of getting the first time observer interested.

      Haven’t we heard this bull-hit all before ? This goes to show how much of self serving a_s Favre really is ! And it’ll be ESPN, Fox Sports and the NFL Network that’ll be feeding the gristle of this all.

      Hopefully that will be a way to ignore (discussing and watching the World Cup) the Brett Favre ‘saga’ that’ll no doubt unfold throughout much of the summer. You can be sure that the idiots within ESPN such as Schlereth, Berman, Hoge, Jaworski , Mortensen and Clayton will either be wallowing in pity for Favre rather than being critical of the player, if he starts to string along the Vikings front office along, as he’s done previously the Jets and Packers.

      Is there ‘no frigging voice of reason’ out there that’s willing to call this ‘as_hole’ out once and for all ?

    This just in , Brett Favre will opt to have his testicles removed in order to become a eunuch and live the rest of his in celibacy. Oh sorry, he’s about to change his mind and become a pre-op transexual. Wait , he’s changed his mind yet again, he wants to return to the NFL and play for , wait for it , wait for it……… the Green Bay Packers. Who’d have thunk it ?

    Stick with me kid and you’ll go places.


    I guess even he wants to pi_s off anyone and everyone whichever way that he can !

  2. I disagree, because I can.

    Brett was GREAT for the Vikings. It’s the reason that Chilly went to the Airport and picked his ass up. He had 9 ints in the regular season and set all types of records doing so.

    That dude took a hellified beatdown and kept getting up in this game. They should wait on him for as long as he wants. The options are Sage and Tavaris, so it aint looking good. Or, they need to sign Mike Vick and then wait for Brett to make his decision.

    As for the pick in regulation, I can live with that.

    You need to get on the coach for 12 men in the huddle penalty. That effectively took Longwell out of range and is the reason they had to throw it on 3rd down. If they ran it and got a loss or a minimal gain, people would have been up in arms about the conservative play. The throw actually wasn’t that bad, the receiver needed to come back to the ball. The pick didn’t lose the game, so I don’t know what the all the hullabaloo about it is. Longwell was not going to make a 58 yard field goal (or his chances of it were very low) The Vikings didn’t run the ball well and the D didn’t make the key stops in the OT.

      This isn’t a game about … would’ve , could’ve and should’ve. You’re obviously oblivious to the fact that repeatedly Favre will place his team in a winning position , only to then go and screw things up with an errant play that could’ve been avoided.

      He essentially reverted to his seemingly gunslinger mentality with the ‘INT’. And you damn well know that one errant play cost his team the game when they had the momentum going their way. It’s bull_hit to suggest otherwise.

      But I guess when you become a ‘Favre apologist’, you can’t but see the hill because of the low lying trees.

      But like I said in the piece I’m glad that this whole worse case scenario was completely avoided. Those buffoons within ESPN would’ve been going ‘Brokeback’ for Favre for an entire two weeks in the lead-up to the game itself . And that’s about as anyone should have to take from a bunch closeted homosexuals. Their wanderlust for Favre borders on being just that. I am surprised that Schlereth of all people doesn’t want to spoon his a_s ?

      It’s you right to disagree but common sense show you’re in the minority on this !

      Now all we’ll have to wait and see is how much of an a_s Brett makes of himself during the offseason. Never mind the fact that Childress has proven that he’s not that great a coach to begin with . How the f_ck can he now come out and say he’s willing to wait on Favre , having seen the player’s prior indecision making concerning his future ?

      Lemmings will always flock to the mundane and asinine as usual.

  3. Again you had something up on Favre……my problem, as with others, was/is his “off-field” “antics”. Will you retire? Yes! Er, no! Er, I dunno…mebbe…..lemme see.
    Oh I’m gonna sign with the Jets…..oops I wanna play for the Vikings…so late to sign. Otherwide I like the guy…so do a lot of other people…he has more guts than anyone I’ve seen, except maybe Terry Bradshaw.
    I think he got screwed over by the Packers in more ways than one, but it is a business, so……
    He screwed the pooch against the Saints…had he run to the open the result would have been different…the Vikes would have won…then of course the coin toss too. Usally, usally, the team that touches the ball last wins…but things happen with reason or without……
    Finally I am “overjoyed” to see the Saints win out and going to the Bowl…I hope they win, ’bout time, especially how the Chargers screwed over Brees. I like Manning, but…..

      The press fawns over Favre as if he’s some sort of ‘media darling’ or ‘deity’. He’s just a damn jock who happens to have hand an illustrious career and that’s about it. He now creates much of this press barrage because of his indecision as to his immediate future. If he were in a typical 9-5 run of the mill job there’d be no way in hell he could get away with those antics.

      Steve is merely being an apologist for Favre and that’s it. Unfortunately Steve isn’t at all looking at the bigger picture and disruption that this causes to an organization.

      I think that sentiment dictates that the public pulls for the Saints. The oddsmakers in Vegas may well see it somewhat differently. The fans in both cities will pull for their respective teams. And the general populace just hopes that it’s a great Superbowl.

      I just want to have fun , drink to my heart’s content, enjoy the game and the no doubt hilarious Superbowl ads.

      Favre it’d appear can’t take a hit or a hint. I think ‘he’ wants to play well into his forties , fifties or sixties ? Poor bastard can’t even make his mind up when he wants to retire , much less what age he wants to retire at. And that’s the joke of it all. He’s making himself look a real ass !
