Though it’s unusual for starters to play in the final preseason game, everything about new Vikings quarterback Brett Favre has been unusual.
So it would be unusual for Favre to play in the Vikings’ preseason finale against the
Vikings Cowboys, since it’s usual for the starters to not play.
In this specific instance, however, Favre will do the usual. On Wednesday, coach Brad Childress said Favre won’t play.
“I don’t see the upside,” Childress said, per the Associated Press.
We’re not sure we agree with that. After all, a 39-year-old quarterback could always use some extra work on his illegal crackback blocking skills.
