Brett Favre

A fellow Mississippian was cut today from the Philadelphia Eagles...and he plays tight end. ? Donald Lee was cut as he was trying to make the Eagles roster after six years in Green Bay.

I have no idea what he has left in the tank but he is not far removed from his best years in the NFL.? In 2007, Lee had 48 receptions for 575 yards and 6 TD's.? In 2008, he had 39 receptions for 303 yards and 5 TD's.

After playing with Brett Favre for three years, I would have to guess he can catch the rock and at 6' 4" and 250 lbs he should be able to kick out a linebacker or seal off a defensive end in the run blocking game.

Not even Brett Favre ever did this for the Green Bay Packer faithful.

Quarterback Aaron Rodgers was nearly flawless at the Georgia Dome on Saturday night, completing 31 of 36 passes for 366 yards and three touchdowns, while avoiding a turnover, leading sixth-seeded Green Bay (12-6) to a 48-21 thrashing of the top-seeded Atlanta Falcons (13-4).

What was expected to be a rematch reminder of the Falcons? 20-17 win over the Packers in the final seconds in Atlanta in Week 12 became a record night for Rodgers and Green Bay.

Brett Favre is listed as inactive for tonight's game vs the Giants.? This could possibly be the end of his professional career.

Favre started 297 consecutive games - the most ever by a quarterback.? Punter Jeff Feagles holds the NFL All-time record for consecutive games played with 352.

Former Oilers-Titans OL Bruce Matthews started the most games in NFL history (292) but they were not consecutive.

From NFL.com:

Minnesota Vikings quarterback Brett Favre has told teammates and associates that he doesn't believe he can play Monday night, and his NFL-record starts streak will end at 297 games, sources with knowledge of the situation said.

"It does not look good," one source close to Favre said Sunday when asked about the feasibility of the quarterback playing in the Vikings' game against the New York Giants. The game was rescheduled to be played in Detroit because of the collapse of the Metrodome roof in Minneapolis.

Brett Favre practiced today in Minnesota, but he did not throw any passes. The school of thought here is that Favre will start on Sunday and be relieved early in the game by Tavaris Jackson.

This way, he keeps his streak of consecutive games alive and, the at the same time, gives the Vikings a better chance to win the football game.

The Giants return to Minnesota this Sunday, the location of last year's dismal finale.

Last time out, the battered Giants had their hats handed to them in New Jersey the week before by Carolina, 41-7, and were looking at a long off-season.? The Vikings were priming the pump to make a run at the Super Bowl.

The Vikings scored the first 44 points before the Giants got on the scoreboard in the 4th quarter on a 1-yard Danny Ware TD run.? The final was 44-7.

If you're a fan of old Westerns, the aging gunfighter usually knows when to ride off into the sunset rather than die bloody and irrelevant in the middle of the street.

Brett Favre, the 41-year-old iron man of the NFL, is one gunslinger who didn't read the memo. He is still standing in the middle of town, shooting it out with all comers.
Lately, he's been taking way more hits than a human body should be able to withstand. He's not as quick as he once was and his elbow and ankle prohibit him from protecting himself and fighting back any longer.? For NFL fans, watching Favre this year has been like watching Sonny Corleone get whacked at the tool booths.

On the tar heels (see what I did there?) of the news that Hakeem Nicks has hyper-extended his knee, Giants fans are swiftly reminded of the main threat to their championship hopes year after year.

Injuries deteriorated a supposedly dream-team defense last season and dismantled a once formidable rushing attack.? Aside from a minor injury to Nicks that caused him to miss a couple games during the cupcake portion of the season, the receiver corps was an oasis of production instead of another unit decimated by failing health.

So far, 2010 has not gotten off to the same start.? By June, the team lost possibly the best reserve receiver (and undoubtedly one of the best return men) in the league when Domenik Hixon tore his ACL.? Nicks may end up being fine after a couple weeks? rest at most; but he may also be laid up long term.? We won?t know until tomorrow.

No, this is not a misprint.

Brett Favre has apparently told the Minnesota Vikings he will not be returning for a 20th season...
