What The Favre

All the doubters who criticized Brett Favre for coming out of retirement a second time to put on a Minnesota Vikings uniform for one last hoorah can kindly shut the hell up. Not that it took until Week 11 for him to prove worthy of the quarterback position, but he’s done a fine job of silencing critics.

Personally, I hate his guts. But as a die hard Packers fan who was madly in love with him ever since the age of 11, I have a different take on the situation. I can forgive, but no, I won’t ever forget. Ah who am I kidding… I still love the guy.

Anyway, Favre completed a career-high 88% of his passes for 213 yards and four touchdown passes for a 35-9 victory over the Seattle Seahawks Sunday afternoon. The 40-year-old future Hall of Famer completed 22 of his 25 passes for the 9-1 Vikings, connecting with Percy Harvin, Visanthe Shiancoe and Bernard Berrian in the 21-point second quarter.

Among chants of “MVP! MVP!” from the Mall of America Field crowd, Favre polished off yet another record-setting day with a 7-yard pass to Sidney Rice with four minutes remaining in the third quarter. The record? Passing up Dan Marino by nailing at least 4 touchdown passes in 22 career NFL games.

Coach Brad Childress decided to save his legend’s arm by replacing him in the fourth quarter with Tarvaris Jackson, who was 6-for-8 for 77 yards and a touchdown. In case you weren’t aware, Jackson generally sucks at football. Matt Hasselbeck got that memo:

“It was a tough day,” the Seahawks quarterback said. “When they put Tarvaris Jackson in in the fourth quarter, it’s almost embarrassing to be down by that much.”
