Bus Cook reveals pictures of Favre's injuries

The injuries Vikings quarterback Brett Favre suffered in the NFC Championship game apparently weren’t fake.

Favre’s agent, Bus Cook, showed photos of Favre’s right hamstring and left ankle to Rick Cleveland of the Clarion-Ledger.  (Yeah, we’re assuming this is Favre, and not just some guy.)
Cleveland posted them on his blog.

    Photochopped. Nice try though.

  2. Tears_of_a_Favre says: Feb 2, 2010 5:23 PM

    Should’ve gone to the bench if he was so hurt. He just risked his team’s chances to go to the Super Bowl. What a putz.

  3. Buff_bronc_fan says: Feb 2, 2010 5:24 PM

    How come Chris Cooley didn’t post pictures of his ankle injury?

  4. Joe in Toronto, Canada says: Feb 2, 2010 5:25 PM

    The kids here hate on Favre every chance they get but really, the guy is as old school as it gets.
    If you can walk, you can play.
    There has never been anyone tougher than Brett Favre, period.

  5. ChillyP says: Feb 2, 2010 5:25 PM

    Ouch those cheap shots he took look like they hurt.

  6. IAVikefan says: Feb 2, 2010 5:26 PM

    You’ll have that when the opposing team’s defensive coordinator’s goal is to knock the QB out of the game and injure him. Why so surprised?

  7. frank booth says: Feb 2, 2010 5:27 PM

    OK, so it’s a picture of someone’s hamstring and left ankle. Would have been nice to see Favre’s face or a full body picture. To me, it could be anyone.

  8. PatricktheDookie says: Feb 2, 2010 5:27 PM

    I’m surprised his foot didn’t just come off on the low hit from behind.

  9. D.R.Universal says: Feb 2, 2010 5:27 PM

    AND??? Thats why he made 12 MILLION BUCKS last season!!!
    You want sympathy?? Thats his JOB!!
    Try sitting in a cubicle 40 yrs a week for a few grand….thats pain! LOL

  10. Tears_of_a_Favre says: Feb 2, 2010 5:29 PM

    Oh yeah, it’s the week before the Super Bowl. Heaven forbid we should talk about the teams playing in it. Yep, Bert and Short Bus want to overshadow the game. Putzes.

  11. footballrulz says: Feb 2, 2010 5:30 PM

    Ouch. And he didn’t miss a down.

  12. Raktak says: Feb 2, 2010 5:30 PM

    Who ever thought Favre was faking it is a Rtard,The Saints were hitting him viciously and trying to take him out of the game…it’s no surprise he is injured and most other QB’s would have left the game for good.

  13. slipkid says: Feb 2, 2010 5:32 PM

    looks like a self-inflicted brusied vagina.

  14. favres_right_tendon says: Feb 2, 2010 5:34 PM

    Let the rain of haters comment about Favre wanting more attention begin. I don’t care what anyone says, this dude is one tough SOB …….

  15. Chapnasty2 says: Feb 2, 2010 5:37 PM

    I would imagine these types of bruises happen to a lot of guys after the games. I’d like to see a RB after a game to compare. Bruises are part of the game, ice it and rub some dirt on it.

  16. Fan of Football says: Feb 2, 2010 5:38 PM

    Unfortunately the league wanted the sob story New Orleans in the SB instead of the Vikes. Just unfortunate the amount of NO calls they let go by (including blatant offensive holding almost every play).

  17. CaptainFantastik says: Feb 2, 2010 5:41 PM

    Aww Favre is doing damage control hoping to divert attention away from yet another season-ending moronic blunder with yet another team. Cry me a river.

  18. Sasquatch says: Feb 2, 2010 5:41 PM

    You can assume it’s Favre. I’ll assume otherwise.

  19. pound30 says: Feb 2, 2010 5:41 PM

    Wow. That is all I have to say about those pictures. How is that not a broken ankle? Pretty gruesome. If that is indeed Brett Favre then I would have even more appreciation on what he does. That’s painful to even look at.

  20. pmm0455 says: Feb 2, 2010 5:44 PM

    Who Dat!! Hopefully we can get to Peyton like that too.

  21. Mr Krinkle says: Feb 2, 2010 5:44 PM

    If he was really too hurt to run and had to throw, he should have thrown it to the guy who was in the flat about 5 yards from him, not across his body. The only defender near that receiver was 5 yards away and running towards the end zone. The pass was so easy he could have threw it over there like a basketball using two hands.

  22. ElCabong says: Feb 2, 2010 5:44 PM

    There has never been any need to describe/show Bert’s previous injuries, why start now?
    Perhaps this is the “My injuries caused my poor play” excuse Bert built in prior to his 2009 season.

  23. BornSlippy says: Feb 2, 2010 5:48 PM

    Is favre the only qb who has bad bruises on his body after a long nfl season? No.
    Is he the only qb who takes photos of himself then leaks it to the media? Yes
    the man is an attention whore, and always has ab excuse.

  24. What's Ur Angle says: Feb 2, 2010 5:49 PM

    That’s definitely Favre. Those are Wrangler Khaki Shorts.

  25. AlwaysSunnyInSD says: Feb 2, 2010 5:52 PM

    After seeing how much attention Dwight Freeney’s ankle commanded, Brett Favre’s ankle demanded equal time.

  26. A_Source_close_2_Favre says: Feb 2, 2010 5:52 PM

    oh-oh Drew and Peyton are getting too much attention – Quick Bus do something!!!

  27. Raktak says: Feb 2, 2010 5:52 PM

    —Should’ve gone to the bench if he was so hurt. He just risked his team’s chances to go to the Super Bowl. What a putz.—-
    Yes because they would have been better off with Sage or Jackson…Are you retarded?

  28. betheball says: Feb 2, 2010 5:53 PM

    I appreciate Brett’s restraint in not sharing a picture of his bruised vagina.
    What an attention whore!

  29. Boudin says: Feb 2, 2010 5:54 PM

    proof that the Saints are dirty! they really hit him!
    anyway, that’s what bruises look like after you rub dirt in them and get back in the game. a lesser QB would have stayed down. mad props to Favre.

    And what happened to, “Oh, hes’ just a big faker?”
    Boy, you guys here sure know everything.

  32. PossibleCabbage says: Feb 2, 2010 5:56 PM

    You never want to see an NFL player get injured, but there’s some guys in the NFL that you really enjoy seeing the holy crap kicked out of.

  33. last starfighter says: Feb 2, 2010 5:58 PM

    It’s great that he has proof that he was hurt and all but seriously how bizarre is this? Who sends out photos of their boo boos? Talk about narcissism.

  34. Vikes-N-Favre says: Feb 2, 2010 5:59 PM

    Looks legit to me. Not surprised though as those pussy ass cheaters known as the Saints went after Favre’s head, knees, and ankles all game long and never got called for it.
    Had those biased officials did there damn job correctly, it would be the Vikings in the SB instead of those feel sorry for me because I got my house destroyed by Hurricane Katrina Saints.
    Karma is a bitch Saints fans, I can’t wait for the day when that stained face Drew Brees gets seriously injured by another team. I just hope that its Jared Allen and company that do it next season. If he doesn’t last that long, then I am hoping for it to happen this weekend. Pretty sad that the only way your team can reach the SB is by illegal hits on the QB, and biased officiating. Enjoy the days while you can, because the Colts will destroy that overrated team of yours on Sunday.

    What does that make you?

  37. RichieBugs83 says: Feb 2, 2010 6:04 PM

    Damn. Brutal looking injuries. I wonder who told Bus Cook to release them? Come on Brett.

  38. Cowboy22 says: Feb 2, 2010 6:05 PM

    AlwaysSunnyinSD:
    The difference between Freeny’s ankle and Favre’s is that Freeney’s team is still playing. This is just Bus Cook trying to get the sympathy vote for Favre again. All true fans will see through this and remember who it was that cost the Vikings their shot at the SB.

  39. CapsLockKey says: Feb 2, 2010 6:07 PM

    That’s what old man bruises look like. Ever see what your grandma or grandpa look like after taking a spill on some ice? Looks just like those pictures.

  40. bluestree says: Feb 2, 2010 6:11 PM

    I can’t remember a guy having photos of his injuries posted like this. Why? Who of any importance was questioning Farve’s injuries? This just feeds into the idea that it’s all about Farve’s legacy, more than wins and losses.

  41. Adam-Chris Scheftersen says: Feb 2, 2010 6:11 PM

    Bus: Now, Brett, I know this is hard, but I need you to point to the place on the doll that the bad man touched you.
    Favre: It was down there… *sob*
    No shit Favre got beat up. And no shit they wanted to knock him out of the game. To all the people who are outraged by it.. Guess what? That’s the goal of every defensive coordinator. Most of them just aren’t stupid enough to say it publicly.

    That’s exactly it right there. Bruises and other injuries happen to everyone in football. High School, Pop Warner, doesn’t matter. Numerous sources in the Steelers locker room said Bettis “WAS one giant bruise” after Super Bowl *, but he didn’t complain, and he sure as hell didn’t take pictures and post them online.
    Bus Cook is bad for football.

    You can assume it’s Favre. I’ll assume otherwise.
    And you can assume I couldn’t care less what you are assuming.

  44. virtualplague says: Feb 2, 2010 6:14 PM

    Wow anyone who is impressed by that is a fool.
    He’s a starting QB in the NFL who was playing for a chance to go to the super bowl. Anything short of a severe concussion or torn ligament, he should have been expected to keep playing. A sprained ankle and a bruised leg? Oh such an iron man.
    Give me a break.
    Nothing impresses me anymore after Rivers played with the torn ACL in the AFC championship game.

  45. RayDaMayor says: Feb 2, 2010 6:14 PM

    It’s not Farve.

  47. DoomsDayD75 says: Feb 2, 2010 6:17 PM

    I don’t know why they released these pictures, we all saw Favre get knocked around, he was clearly in a lot of pain. It’s football though, it’s a violent sport, I’d be surprised if people weren’t banged up by this point in the season.

  48. purpleguy says: Feb 2, 2010 6:20 PM

    Where’s the picture of his bruised noggin? That would’ve at least explained the 4th quarter INT. Nope, like most Vike fans, I still feel like crap whether Lord Favre’s hinder was bruised or not.

  49. Florio-is-a-tool says: Feb 2, 2010 6:20 PM

    Bus didn’t include Bert’s injuries to his sphincter caused by Joe Buck and Peter King fighting for more access of their BFF. Why?

  50. Mick730 says: Feb 2, 2010 6:20 PM

    The attention that Manning is getting is driving Favre up the wall. It will only get worse as Sunday gets closer. If the Colts win, Favre will go right over the edge. 4 MVP’s and two Super Bowl trophies and the fact that Manning is 8 years younger and threatens Favre’s records will be more than the old attention whore can stand.
    An agent shopping photos of injuries to the press? That’s pathetic. ‘Never mind yet another playoff game choking, boneheaded blunder, look at all my owies!!!!!!!’

  54. DocBG says: Feb 2, 2010 6:25 PM

    I’m curious if most of the people on here talking smack about favre are packer fans or just straight up trolls.
    the reason i ask is pretty simple, Through all the will he or won’t he garbage, i don’ t think packer fans (as dumb as they are) questioned his toughness. hus ability in the clutch and intelligence, but never his toughness. hell, as a lifelong viking fan who watched favre and his magic torch the vikes plenty of times over his career, we NEVER questioned the guy’s toughness.
    If it’s packer fans talking smack about him being a wuss, then you folks should be ashamed of yourselves and you do not deserve to watch the game of football ever again in your lives, if its just a bunch of trolls going about business as usual, then by all means keep it up, we’d expect nothing less then for douches like you at the last second to pile on the dude.

    Brett is a tough SOB… I hope like hell he comes back next year… There were some cheaps shots on him in that game, I lost a lot of respect for New Orleans… but the fumbles killed the Vikes…

  58. AR12isBetter says: Feb 2, 2010 6:31 PM

    That’s not Favre, how stupid are you people??

  59. GBP says: Feb 2, 2010 6:35 PM

    He’s a QB in the NFL – its a tough game and injuries happen. Big deal. There plenty of players that play hurt and are injured worse than Favre was. For those who say that it was wrong for the Saints to try and take him out, give it up. The NFL is kill or be killed – Favre is 40 years old and its a pretty good stategy to keep pounding the old man. There is nothing wrong with it and if Favre comes back, you better believe every team he plays is going to do the same thing. That’s the game – deal with it.

  60. favre uses allens mullet as handlebars says: Feb 2, 2010 6:36 PM

    Lol! Wonder what his ego looks like!
    As Mr.Madden would say…….. Brett Favre! Brett Favre! Brett Farve!

  61. Josh Krauss says: Feb 2, 2010 6:39 PM

    You all sit here and rip on Favre. A lot of it is for no just reason either. Last i checked he is not the one that kept fumbling the ball and he didnt play on the defense that gave up 28 points, neither was he playing defense in overtime when the Vikings D let the Saints drive and get a field goal. They lost as a team and in fact Favre could have still thrown both of his INT’s and had everyone else not fumbled they still would have won. If im not mistaken it was AP and Berrian that fumbled in the red zone which would have given them at least 6 points had they not fumbled which would have been game, not to mention one of Favre’s picks should have been negated by a roughing the passer penalty. The guy made one bad decision all year and with out him the Vikings would have been no better than they were the year before. So stop your crying this guy is who got you guys as far as you made it. Show some respect and some appreciation. Beside that i would like to see one of you take all the hits he took in that game and stay in, most of you would have taken just one of those hits and been running to the bench crying for your mommy’s. The guy is one of the best QB’s to ever play the game and at 40 years old he out performed just about every QB in the league, in fact if i am not mistaken stat wise he had the best year of his career. But yet none of you can appreciate what he did for the vikings and what he had done for this sport, you all just sit behind your keyboard and run your mouths. Lets not forget either if Brad Childress knew how to count they could have just ran for that last 3rd down and it would have been at the farthest a 52 yard er, but since Childress cant count it backed them up to what would have been a 57 yarder therefore requiring Brett to make a play with his arm, besides that there is no guarantee the kicker would have made the 52 yard er yet alone the 57 yard er. You all need to grow up and realize he is not the only reason the Vikings lost that game, the 7 fumbles of which 4 were lost played a HUGE factor in the outcome of the game, if the rest of players would have backed him up and not put the ball on the ground every time he got it to them, the Vikings would be in the super bowl, shit Favre could have thrown 3 picks and had they not fumbled all those balls they still would have won. I want to see him play more, but hope he does not just so the Vikings can drop back to being a borderline playoff team that loses in the first round, then you all will be wishing Brett was their.

  62. Josh Krauss says: Feb 2, 2010 6:41 PM

    Lets not forget either had the refs not been biased towards wanting the Saints to win, then there would not have been all those bull crap calls, especially the ones in overtime.

  63. Ross'sSweetMinus says: Feb 2, 2010 6:41 PM

    Brett is as tough as they come, not like the cry babies of today in the N.F.L., sitting down for a hangnail.
    It’s only when they’re gone do we realize how much they meant.

  65. .VoxVeritas says: Feb 2, 2010 6:57 PM

    Everybody gets banged up. It’s football, stupid. STFU and quit being such a pussy. Bruises didn’t make you throw that ultra-stupid pass unless you have a brain bruise, too. Looks fake anyway.

  66. .VoxVeritas says: Feb 2, 2010 7:02 PM

    “”Should’ve gone to the bench if he was so hurt. ”
    Really? A football player shouldn’t play through injuries? Really?”
    No. Playing with an injury is stupid 100% of the time and is likely to hurt your team more than it helps it. Playing with pain is another story.

  67. Pay This Man! says: Feb 2, 2010 7:05 PM

    Get a frickin’ grip. This is normal for NFL players. We all know what “Me First Brett” did. Welcome to the nightmare Vikings fans. Without Desmond Howard, he wouldn’t even have a ring. He single-handedly lost the 2nd one in SD. Look up articles about any player on the Broncos in 1997 and you’ll read it. He was hungover as hell and couldn’t focus at all during the game. He was the proverbial “deer in the headlights”.

  71. Pervy Harvin says: Feb 2, 2010 7:30 PM

    While I do think Favre is tough,I really don’t sympathize with sports injuries. Hell, in high school I went to school regularly with black eyes and bruises all over from being a Golden gloves fighter. Fought for trophies back then. Favre makes bundles. Deal with it Favre.

  86. CaptainFantastik says: Feb 2, 2010 8:53 PM

    Hey Josh Krause, try breaking your posts up into paragraphs.
    And as for the asenine contention that the refs or the NFL “wanted the Saints to win”………anybody with even a small portion of grey matter between their ears knows a Favre-Manning SB would’ve been a much larger ratings draw and would have translated to far more dollars than a Brees-Manning SB. CBS said before the conference championships that a Favre-Manning matchup would draw an estimated 4 million extra viewers minimum. Both the NFL and CBS (and CBS’ advertisers) wanted the Vikings to win.
    Spare us your childish, bitter conspiracy theories. And tell me, what’s the salinity level of the sweat on Favre’s balls? Fell free to come up for air anytime.

  87. bayesian says: Feb 2, 2010 9:06 PM

    Okay Brett messed up on the last play of the game. But would the game have even come down to that if AP or Bernard hadn’t fumbled the ball. Probably not, especially the fumble by AP in the red zone. So can all you cracker jacks, stop complaining about Favre already.

  88. lebowski says: Feb 2, 2010 9:19 PM

    No liver spots…. that’s hilarious WhoDey!

  89. Bearsblow says: Feb 2, 2010 9:24 PM

    Name one other player that has had his agent takes photos and release them (or ok’d it, or did not get pissed when the agent did it)? Seriously, every year in the playoffs there are great stories of players fighting thru injuries TO WIN GAMES. So we need to see Favres bruises as he INT’s he way thru a playoff game again. That guy has got issues.
    Please keep up with the band camp stories Pervy.

    @JoshKrauss Dude you are totally correct. Most of the guys on this site couldn’t take the first hit Brett took without a trip to the hospital. And yes, we are just a bunch of guys hiding behind our keyboards running our mouths, but the last I checked, the National Football League did not want men such as us on the field. They actually prefer us where we are. In the stands, watching on the tube, and yes, making our pathetic wisecracks on the various websites that promote the sport. They prefer to use professional football players to play the actual game, but they are in favor of us making fools of ourselves over the rivalries. Seriously kid, I can see you’ve got it bad. I don’t know how long ago it happened, but you’ve fallen in love. Actually, you’ve fallen in Lovre. You’ve gotta let go man, you’ll just get your heart broke. I know.

    “”Should’ve gone to the bench if he was so hurt. ”
    Really? A football player shouldn’t play through injuries? Really?”
    No. Playing with an injury is stupid 100% of the time and is likely to hurt your team more than it helps it. Playing with pain is another story.

    And what would that pain be caused by, if not an injury? That’s kind of like saying it’s not cool to drink while driving, but driving drunk is acceptable.

    Um.. It may be me, but I thought Favre hurt his left ankle. As far as I can tell, this is a right ankle, and I teach human anatomy. So… Not sure this won’t be debunked in a day or two.
    ——————————————-
    Wow, I’m glad I’m not in your anatomy class. Look at the ankle picture again. You can clearly see that you are looking at the inside (medial) portion of the left foot/ankle. Can’t you see the arch of the foot? It’s scary to think you are shaping the minds of our youth….

    Had those biased officials did there damn job correctly, it would be the Vikings in the SB instead of those feel sorry for me because I got my house destroyed by Hurricane Katrina Saints.
    Karma is a bitch Saints fans, I can’t wait for the day when that stained face Drew Brees gets seriously injured by another team. I just hope that its Jared Allen and company that do it next season. If he doesn’t last that long, then I am hoping for it to happen this weekend. Pretty sad that the only way your team can reach the SB is by illegal hits on the QB, and biased officiating. Enjoy the days while you can, because the Colts will destroy that overrated team of yours on Sunday.

    Wow! I know most of you haven’t opened a book since that last one you didn’t finish coloring, but did any of you get past looking at the pictures and actually read the article? The writer brings up Favre and after Cook mentions the pictures the writer asks for the pics. Now Cook set it up for such a request (baiting the hook so to speak) but this wasn’t like he held a news conference or mass emailed the pics out to the media.
    Questioning the need to send the pics out is legit. But also remember most players who sustain an injury don’t send pics out because they can be seen with crutches, slings, braces, boots or casts. They don’t need to send pics because the injury is obvious for all to see. Maybe Cook sent the pictures out in response to the dorks who questioned how banged up Favre was.
    Those thinking the bruises are fake clearly never played competitive sports before. Those thinking it’s not Favre need to get a grip. Why wouldn’t the bruises be real and why wouldn’t it be Favre? If you watched the game you could see him getting drilled on more than one occassion. Anyone who’s racked up an ankle knows it can bruise like this and while the hamstring bruise is quite huge, it’s not like this is extraordinary if it takes a big hit. I’m sure he’s extremely sore but he’ll heal. I’m also sure many of our favorite players over the years have had more than their share of nasty bruises as well.

  106. Adam-Chris Scheftersen says: Feb 3, 2010 9:53 AM

    My point remains. Who else does this?
    I’ve never questioned Favre’s toughness. I think he’s by far the toughest player I’ve watched. So why bother sending out the pictures? Why bother taking the pictures? Why does your agent have them? After 29 years in the NFL don’t you know anything about agents?
    It’s ridiculous, and it just leads to more of the same old criticism of Favre–that he’s an attention-seeking media whore.

  107. akuehn713 says: Feb 3, 2010 10:01 AM

    What a bunch of crap. If those are actually pictures of Favre (doubtful) it doesn’t matter. Bruises like that take several hours if not a day to form. So it really had little impact during the game, especially with the adrenaline flowing. This is just another excuse coming from the excuse factory that is Favre.
    I don’t think you can qualify as a tough guy if you constantly whine and cry about your injuries. You want a tough guy, Chris Spielman played MIDDLE LINEBACKER for 12 games with a Torn pectoral muscle. That is tough, not some bruises (that were probably painted on by some body painting artist.)

    111 comments and counting, most coming from people bashing Favre. Here’s a concept, if you hate Favre so much, just skip the article. It’s what most rational, intelligent people would do. It’s not hard to do. Kind of like how I don’t like Alex Rodriguez, so I don’t read about him, and I certainly don’t waste my day whining about him online all day.
    I’m guessing the same people calling Favre a diva for leaking the pics, were the same ones calling him a pussy for faking the injuries. And to the Packer fans who make up the vast majority of the bashers, it’s been 2 years. Time to move on.

  114. sand0 says: Feb 3, 2010 2:13 PM

    It is too bad the refs refused to throw personal foul penalties on those cheap shots. He took a forearm to the jaw early on when he didn’t even have the ball and the refs looked the other way. The first interception was as obvious of a low shot as they get (and the one that caused the ankle sprain) yet the refs displayed obvious bias and let them keep doing it. They even admitted later it was a screw up.
    Don’t get me wrong, the Vikings beat themselves more than the refs but the bias was awfully obvious, especially in overtime when they bailed the Saints out with the phantom defensive interference penalty.
    But enjoy your super bowl Saints fans. Lord knows you guys deserve it, even if your team didn’t necessarily earn it outright.

    Old guys bruise like peaches, so what? My grandfather had a full upper-body bruise from a deployed airbag. He didn’t feel any pain but it looked horrid. He didn’t even know it until he got undressed later that night. Do you have any idea how many bruises all of these players must have after playing professional football? To say these are worse bruises than normal because of cheap shots is ludicrous. The ankle tackle should have been called. The roughing call he got after handing off (on the reverse-like end-around) should not. If you want to list all the “shoulda-coulda-wouldas”, we’ll be here all night.

    @Pervy Nation-
    This ain’t about refs. In fact, it’s barely even about football. All I was saying was that if you (and others) are gonna talk about the “New Orleans Revival Tour” and the utterly mind-blowing “feel sorry for me because my house got destroyed in a hurricane”, you lose the right to get offended when people make light of the feat of engineering brilliance that resulted in your own local tragedy.
    In other words, if YOU don’t want to feel sorry for people who lost their homes and/or lives in a horrible storm, don’t ask US to feel sorry for people whose cars fell in a river because some Minnesota moron messed up a safety inspection just two weeks prior.
    You should understand. After all, you’re the one who brags about trying to offend everyone you can on here, right? Just don’t hate me because I’m better at it than you.

    He’s choking (sound familiar?) on the humongous crow that was stuffed down his throat when Favre (Mr. Predictable) handed the game over. I have to say again how sweet it was to watch the Vikings go down in tear-filled flames…again. And with Favre at the helm, it was true poetic justice. I never thought I would enjoy anything as much as I enjoyed Atlanta beating them when they had their SuperBowl rooms already booked several years ago, but I was wrong. Reading all of these bitter Viking fans lame attempts to “put us in our places” is fascinatingly hilarious. Meanwhile, back at Lambeau, it’s all good. And will be for many years to come….as usual.

  132. Tompadre says: Feb 4, 2010 10:36 AM

    Adam-Chris -
    Honestly, I think this has less to do with being an excuse for his late game decision making and more to do with why he will wait forever before his playing next season decision making.
    Ambrose -
    If the type of hit McCrary put on Favre happened 100 times it would be flagged 100 times. That is why he was also fined. Favre wasn’t attempting to block him as you have claimed, and he wasn’t in McCrary’s path to the ball carrier either. McCrary took three steps to hit Favre and clearly could see he didn’t have the ball, otherwise he would have made an attempt to tackle Favre rather than just drilling him.
    Beer -
    What do you mean it’s not about refs? Here’s the very first sentence of your post:
    “Enough about the officiating errors that every team in this year’s playoffs had to face…”
    Although your main point is focused on the insensitivity towards Katrina (and rightfully so) you start by taking a shot at the fans complaining about the refs. You could have just gone after those fans without bringing up the refs, but you didn’t. Now you’re being called on your own constant and long standing ref bashing and you suddenly back away from your initial statement by saying it’s not about that? You took a shot at some people and got called out on it – man-up – don’t weasel out!

    So you’re okay with second place in the division, one and done in the playoffs? You feel confident with your offense giving up 50 sacks and your defense giving up 30+ points to any offense with a pulse? You’re all right with having age & injury associated with four of the most important positions on your team – OT & CB? You feel good about your young stud QB fumbling 10 times in a season, reluctant to fit the ball into a tight spot and not displaying pocket awareness? You’re happy he ended your team’s season the same way your old QB use to, in grand fashion by intentionally kicking the ball so the defender had a chance to grab it before it hit the ground and run it in for the game winning/season ending score? (At least the opposing offense had to make plays to score after Favre’s picks against the Eagles & Giants)

I realize when it comes to the NFL I am a complete moron. Your retort of “there is your usual know nothing routine” is tired and old.

    The Packers were not expected to do much this year, especially with a second year QB still learning the ropes…but learn them he did….and he has produced more in his first two years than the first two years of any QB before him…ever. When they competed and made the playoffs, I didn’t feel so bad when they came up short…they had already exceeded all expectations and made it interesting at the end. And what they demonstrated in the process is confidence in the future.
    The Vikings on the other hand….shot their wad….and they know it. The finger-pointing and unraveling has already begun. That is why their fans sound so bitter and frustrated, and Packer fans, once again, are cool as cucumbers.

    Where in my post did I mention your use of the know nothing routine? And I wouldn’t mention it so often in other posts if you didn’t use it as your built in excuse for being stupid. If you truly believe you’re a “football idiot,” why bother posting, or even reading the articles on here? Why would a know nothing seek out knowledge?
    I didn’t jump ship because Favre left, I stopped rooting for the Packers because their idiot GM intentionally traded away their best player, and failed to field the most competitive team. I’ve explained this to you, many times, yet you still can’t seem to grasp what I’m saying. And before you go off on one of your moronic tangents, realize I said grasp the concept, not agree with it.
    You see, there’s the thing. Most people on here talk trash and insult each other and their opinions. But they do listen to them, and most people understand where the other is coming from. But you’re a bit different. You believe what you believe, and if someone disagrees, they’re an idiot. You don’t even realize that it’s you who really is the idiot. You act like you know everything, say you know nothing, then when proven wrong, you either change the subject and fail to acknowledge your own stupidity, or you just run away, like the coward you are.

    Um…The Packer’s weren’t expected to do anything? I think a lot of people had them going to the SuperBowl. 2nd year QB? How about drafted in 2005.
    The Vikings did have their chance and blow it. But the Packer’s lost in the worst possible way. By having that hack for a QB blow the game in the end. Favre didn’t cost the Vikings the game…The numerous turnovers were a team effort. But A-Rodgers lost the game for the Packers. Plus if Baby Swiss doesn’t go ahead and try to improve, I doubt A-Rodge will make it through 2010.
    Ted “Deer in Headlights” Thompson built a team that overachieved. Woodson will not win a few games for the Pack next season. He made Clay Mathews look better, he made A-Rodge look better, and he gave the Packers fans hope for next season.

    You are exactly right. They were everybody’s trendy pick to go to the Super Bowl, while the Vikings were supposed to struggle for a Wild Card spot, even with Favre. The Packers definitely over achieved this year, just like in 2007.
    Next year, they play the AFC and NFC East, so they don’t get the cakewalk schedule like this year. I would be shocked to see a finish better than 8-8.

    I don’t disagree at all. Unless Favre comes back, then there’s no way 9 wins takes the title. If not, then you very well could see a 3 way race to 9 wins.
    The schedules were equally soft, but the difference was how the Vikes and Pack performed against good teams. The Vikes were 6-2 against teams with .500 or better records, the Packers went 3-4, not including the win against Arizona’s 2nd and 3rd strings.

    I think 10-6 could win it even if Favre comes back. New England, the Jets, Philly, Dallas, and the Saints are all tough games. All could be potential losses. Same with the Packers just replace the Saints with the Falcons. Both have to go on the road to NE and Philly. Gonna be a tough go for both teams.

    Not trying to be a dick here, but just a thought. Why is it that Packer fans are still bitching about Favre “losing” the NFC Championship 2 years ago, yet the same fans are now satisfied with a Wild Card exit where their defense was embarrassed and the QB literally handed the game to the Cards? And you say you will be satisfied again with just a playoff berth.
    Also, I really think that Teddy will really tighten up on the spending this year, in fear of overspending then having to deal with a salary cap the following year.

    Holy cats, the coward came back to this thread. Shocking to see no mention of the verbal thrashing I gave him, but impressive nonetheless.
    And no one mentioned anything about big names, just recognizable ones to fill holes.
    But you’re right, big name free agency is for the birds. Funny to hear this from a fan of the team who made possibly the biggest free agent signing in the history of sports with Reggie White. And Sean Jones came a year later as a free agent, what a bad move.
    I bet the Saints are still kicking themselves for picking up Drew Brees. Here’s a few more failures, all whose teams won Super Bowls after their arrivals.
    Deion Sanders, twice 49ers and Cowboys.
    Tony Siragusa Ravens
    Michael McCrary Ravens
    James Farrior Steelers
    Plax Burress Giants
    There’s 5 Champions in the last 15 years who used big name free agency to get there, and Brees could be number 6. Not to mention Kurt Warner, Rich Gannon, Jon Runyan, and Jake Delhomme who each went to the Super Bowl with their new teams. There’s more, but this should be enough to shut you up.

    I’m not playing Madden, Super. I’m looking at facts. I’ve compiled a pretty good list of free agents who contributed to their team’s immediate success, and you combat it with “stop playing Madden.” Brilliant.
    The last 3 NFC Super Bowl teams had big name free agents as huge contributors, Brees, Warner, and Plaxico.
    And funny how you fail to acknowledge all of the other successful FA’s I mentioned, kind of like how you always try to sidestep your proven stupidity.

    Fair enough. I just think Thompson has left some things unattended on the squad and his philosophy on building almost exclusively thru the draft has yet to prove he can field a team any better than just making the playoffs in today’s football culture. I’m not saying buy up expensive free agents, but he doesn’t seem to be using all of the tools made available to him.
    I’ve said for some time now Thompson probably wasn’t big on starting his tenor with a player with so much influence on the squad. He and Favre could have come up with a plan for a trade years before and made the transition for everyone easier and beneficial in the long run.
    By the way, as others have noted, GB was picked by many to win the SB, thus a first round exit was not over-achieving.

    Never said I was satisfied with a one and done. I want them to win a Super Bowl, but you have the make the playoffs to get there right? That usually means winning the division most times right? You don’t think a division championship and a home playoff game is an improvement to feel good about?
    As far as your same old dig at Rodgers. I was on here after that game saying he needed to hold on to the damn ball. Why do you have to bring him up anyway? You act like just because I think he has potential to be a great QB for a long time that I think he is perfect and has no flaws. I never once said anything to that effect.

    The Vikings on the other hand….shot their wad….and they know it. The finger-pointing and unraveling has already begun. That is why their fans sound so bitter and frustrated, and Packer fans, once again, are cool as cucumbers.
    ==============================
    Shot their wad? The Vikings had nine Pro Bowl players not named Favre, and another handful of players in the conversation. Five of their rookies contributed this year and some of their younger players started to blossom (boy, that word sounds weird in connection to football). They have issues, but as you feel about the Pack, I have confidence they will be addressed. The one thing Chilly does well (other than being stubborn about his pet project T-Jack) is evaluate the team’s deficiencies and address them. Probably is better suited to be a GM actually.
    What finger pointing? The players themselves have gone on record as saying they’re fine with Favre missing OTAs and coming late to camp. Everyone seems to have taken their own responsibilities for the loss, coaches and players alike.
    The teeth gnashing you hear from Vikings fans isn’t because the team failed at a one shot deal. They’re frustrated because they watched their team out perform their opponent only to give the game away. Games you should win are the worst kind to lose.

  176. Tompadre says: Feb 5, 2010 1:44 AM

    Beer -
    I acknowledged in my post that the main point of your post was the fans making light of Katrina.
    My point was why bring up the refs at all when going after fans for being classless? They are two seperate issues. Unless of course you are going after them because they are implying a conspiracy by the league to have the refs slant their calls in sympathy for the area still recovering from Katrina. In which case, the shot directed at you for your own league/refs conspiracy theories concerning the Steelers was legit.
    On another note, how do you feel about Thompson and the direction of the Packers after the 11-5 season? Better? Or do you feel things fell right for them and he still has some major issues to address?

    Like I said to Ambrose – Nine Pro Bowlers other than Favre, several more in the conversation, five rookies contributing this year and several young vets maturing into very productive players. Yeah, sounds like a window closing to me.
    What makes it more sweet is how the rank and file of Viking nation had gulped down the “THIS IS OUR YEAR!!” kool-aid and were crushed when they lost.
    xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
    If memory serves me correctly, Packer fans were talking Super Bowl after the pre-season, after their win streak and as they headed for their playoff game against the Cardinals. Guess they choked on the kool-aid too. Seriously, isn’t that really just fans hoping, wishing, wanting their team to continue to do well after seeing some nice success?

    ===========================
    Oddly enough, the Vikings have been one of the few teams who have had great success in free agency. They’ve added All-Pros & Pro Bowlers, as well as highly productive players to solid contributors over the Childress, Tice & Green eras. They’ve had extremely few outright busts, especially considering the number of free agents they’ve added over all those years. When handing out big bucks though you better know what kind of player you’re getting. Will he stay hungry on the field?

    Didn’t mean to take a jab at Rodgers, was just using what happened in the game to ask my question about what your thoughts on the Pack were. I also think Rodgers has tons of potential, I just think his GM is failing to put talent around him, i.e. the offensive line, coaching staff.
    And he would also benefit from having a coach, and even a fanbase, that would hold him accountable for his mistakes. He seems to get a free pass for errors from the fans, like he’s their kid brother or something. And McCarthy is the same way. Rodgers got sacked 50 times, all Mumbles wanted to do was blame the line.
    It seems like McCarthy is trying to coach Rodgers the same way he did Favre. But the 2 guys are polar opposites, and should be coached as such. McCarthy had to emphasize to Favre not to take so many chances, not to throw so many stupid passes. And now it appears he’s preaching the same gospel, even though Rodgers doesn’t need it. It’s not his style to take risks, he would actually benefit from taking a few more. It just looks like he refuses to throw into tight spots, but he’s got the accuracy to do it. Just not the mindset.

  180. TheHydraPart6 says: Feb 5, 2010 9:44 AM

    Majik,
    Free Agaency simply doesn’t work. Ask Washington. It can in rarae occasions be useful if the individual has the right mindset and fits in your workplace and does not bring bad habits. Also a coaching staff is hired by the head coach in Green Bay. Mumbles? Whi is Mumbles and I sure hope you didn’t steal that from Ragnar. I would be embarrased for you if you did so I assume you are refering to someone else. It took 5 years for Holmgren to win it all. McCarthy hasn’t had five years yet.

  181. Majik Bullet says: Feb 5, 2010 10:42 AM

    I call McCarthy Mumbles because he mumbles when he speaks. Not a difficult nickname to figure out.
    Free agency simply does work. Ask New Orleans, Dallas, San Fran, Pittsburgh, Baltimore, New York, Arizona. They all made it to Super Bowls thanks to huge free agent signings. And I think Minnesota did pretty well this year with their big free agent signing, as well.
    You point out one team who fails in free agency, and this makes you think it doesn’t work ever. There’s a difference between what Washington does, and what good teams do in free agency. Like it or not, teams need free agents to be successful, you can’t just build through the draft. I could just as easily point out teams who fail in the draft, and then say that building through the draft simply doesn’t work.
    But I’m smarter than that, and you. I realize that it usually requires both the draft and free agency to build a championship team. You go ahead and keep buying into Ted Thompson’s build through the draft philosophy, which has netted exactly zero championships in 10 years of management. I’ll buy into the facts, and all of the teams who have relied on key signings to push their teams over the edge and into the Super Bowl that support my belief.
