Childress calls out Favre, who is unsure of status next week

Sorry, folks: It’s going to be tough to avoid writing about Brett Favre this week.  The guy just gives us too much material.

Last night’s drama was just getting started before the post-game press conferences. Favre ultimately hobbled off after his session in slow motion, using both hands on the railings to get down from the stage. Favre admits he’s not sure if he’ll play against the Patriots this week because of his ankle injury.

“Who knows?” Favre said. “Really, who knows? I hope I do. It’ll be tough
to get over this loss, as it’s tough to get over any loss. But I’ve got
to find a way to do it.  The reality is, if I can play but not be effective, then it’s not worth
playing. I hope I use good judgment. We’ll see. I’m no spring chicken
anymore. I don’t heal as quickly.”

We don’t really buy the notion Favre could sit out, but we believe Favre when he says how “devastated” he was after the game. Tom Pelissero of ESPN1500.com writes that Favre sat at his locker for a long time, tears in eyes, with teammates coming over to console him. 

Vikings coach Brad Childress was less sensitive, admitting he was close to pulling Favre after his third interception. 

“I was going to give him that next series and he took us and moved us down the field,” Childress said in reference to Minnesota’s last touchdown drive.

The Vikings coach didn’t hide his frustrations with Favre’s three interceptions.

“It still goes back to taking care of the football,” Childress said.
“You can’t throw it to them. You’ve got to play within the confines of
our system. Sometimes, it’s OK to punt the football, and you can’t give
seven points going the other way. Not in a game like this.”

    Isn’t that the guy they went to LA for??? Isn’t he superman??? I love Karma, don’t you?

    Injured farve or terrible Jackson……. Sounds like an easy pats win

  3. Crazy Nick says: Oct 25, 2010 8:21 AM

    Who cares about the Vikings? Or the Packers? Or any of the other teams in that joke of a Conference.
    The 2011 Super Bowl Champion is coming out of the AFC.

  4. DopeBoys says: Oct 25, 2010 8:22 AM

    This combined with that gold diggin garden tool proves Favre to be a beaten and battered old man. He should walk away while he can still walk.

  5. steelerdynasty says: Oct 25, 2010 8:27 AM

    how’s that decision NOT to go for points before the half sitting with you now Chilly? Dumbass!

  6. CarlGerbschmidt says: Oct 25, 2010 8:33 AM

    Ha ha, nice game gunslinger. It was a nice win for us, but I don’t see why everybody is making such a big deal out of it. You’re not even our rival.

  7. MrHumble says: Oct 25, 2010 8:35 AM

    Favre made mistakes, Childress made mistakes but this game was determined by inept officials period. No more needs be said.

  8. Tim_Stead says: Oct 25, 2010 8:36 AM

    What an embarrassing diva Favre is. 5 year olds don’t require this much coddling. Childress would have my sympathy had he not participated in that embarrassing recruitment effort to bring the most overrated QB in the history of the NFL back to Minny.

  9. shadowman1433 says: Oct 25, 2010 8:36 AM

    I have to say, for once childress might be right.

  10. green man says: Oct 25, 2010 8:37 AM

    Ha, the ‘queens sold their sold for this?
    Meh, as a Bears fan I can’t talk, we got fleeced on the Cutler trade.

  11. moezilla says: Oct 25, 2010 8:37 AM

    This might possibly be the smartest thing Chilly has ever uttered.
    I was unsure of Favre joining the Vikes two years ago. A lifetime of despising the Packers will do that to a guy.
    After last year, my opinion was still the same, a slight mis-trust of Favre, giving all of the credit for the team’s success to the talent around him.
    Time to end this failed experiment before it gets out of hand.
    Jackson might not be Favre and I think that’s what this team needs right now.

  12. NoRingsForYou says: Oct 25, 2010 8:38 AM

    Why does anyone think the Vikings are a super bowl contender? They’ve got a good running back and some playmaking receivers and that’s it. No pass rush, average run defense, shaky secondary and offensive line and a poor QB and coach. They’re not even contending in the weak-azz NFC.

  13. BernardPollardIsAnAss says: Oct 25, 2010 8:38 AM

    File this under: “who cares?” There season is over and the Patriots will bury them a little further this Sunday.

  14. 2MuchTime says: Oct 25, 2010 8:41 AM

    I love it. You are right. Brett Favre generates too much material to avoid writing about him. He’s good copy.
    This is playing like some old sports movie where the athlete hangs in there too long, his life starts to unravel and we’re watching it in real time.
    It’s common knowledge that Childress is not a good coach. 3rd and 15 with 50 seconds left in the 4th and Childress calls a play action roll out with only one receiver to that side. With the game on the line, Childress gives Favre 1 option. They could have stacked 4 wideouts to one side and either flooded left or right. 4 times the chance of success with the game on the line.
    No clock management for another year. Look at the second hand and think at the same time.
    Some of this is on Favre. You can tell he’s feeling a little desparate and regret may have set in. Most of this is on Childress and the fact that his system sucks.
    If Childress puts Jackson in, Peterson will carry the ball 40 times a game every game until his career is abruptly shortened.
    We’re watching a sad end to an American Sports icon.

  15. Love_Boat_Scandal says: Oct 25, 2010 8:49 AM

    Chilly had more to do with the loss than Favre. No challenge flag on the Quarless TD and kneeling down before halftime. Favre was hit or pressured on at least 2 of his INTs.

  16. jimmySee says: Oct 25, 2010 8:51 AM

    Hey Jude — don’t carry the world upon your shoulders.
    Heal and come back fighting.
    It’s ok to take a week or three off.

  17. Glassguy9 says: Oct 25, 2010 8:52 AM

    Farve sucks,thought he was wearing green and gold again last night

  18. crazyguy says: Oct 25, 2010 8:56 AM

    Wow… he finally grew a pair. No excuses, just plain crappy football. Now tell your fans that. They are blaming the refs.
    Previous quotes by Minnescrotum fans:
    “You have to deal with bad calls”
    “No excuses. You play with who you have”
    “We are going to kill the Packers tonight”
    Ah… the sweet taste of victory. Not a clean one but still a “W”.

  19. epping16 says: Oct 25, 2010 9:02 AM

    I watched the postgame pressers….and to me it really looked like Favre was saying he might be DONE. Would he retire in the middle of the year? Of course not! But could his ankle or elbow (or any of his other excuses) get so bad that he is forced to call it quits? Possibly. If you watch him on the field, it’s so funny how he is great and running down the field and jumping when he is making good plays. Then as soon as he makes a couple bad throws he is either limping or grabbing his elbow. What a drama queen.

  20. j-wil says: Oct 25, 2010 9:03 AM

    This just in…………Favre is old!!!
    Enjoy your season viking fans, maybe next time your sorry ass organization can find some of their own players instead of trying to win with old packer castoffs!
    Los Angeles Vikings……… nice

  21. HITME says: Oct 25, 2010 9:05 AM

    Bench the chump! Who is in charge of the team, Favre or Childress?! If the coach doesn’t have the spine to bench him then the coach should go hangout with Tim Brewster in the unemployment line. Quit letting the washed up has been hold this team hostage. Give Jackson his last chance. We all know it’s over for #4 so pull the trigger now before we have absolutly no chance at the playoffs. GO VIKES!!!

  22. TheRealARod says: Oct 25, 2010 9:05 AM

    Hold on so Favre might not play next week because of his ankle? What did he reinjure it when he was running around jumping up and down when he thought that Harvin caught the game winning TD?

  23. JimmySmith says: Oct 25, 2010 9:11 AM

    This becomes the true test of a coach, how he handles his team in the midst of a downturn. Col Klink has a history of throwing his players under the bus so it is no surprise that he turns this direction once again.
    Forget for a moment whether his points are valid, your team just lost and the last thing you want to do is point fingers, its immature, its classless, and its pointless. But Klink is still smarting from the pre season story where it was leaked that Favre thought Klink was “clueless”. And in not challenging the non touchdown catch last night , Favre is right.
    So this sets up a classic showdown for the rest of the season, Col Klink, self described smartest coach in football vs BrINT Favre, a guy who never understood the concept of ball security. To borrow TO’s phrase, get your popcorn ready, the Vikings are about to self implode.

  24. Calistin says: Oct 25, 2010 9:13 AM

    Randy Moss pushes off all the time. Quit acting like he’s the victim of some sort of huge conspiracy.
    Sorry but blaming the refs only makes you look ignorant.
    Were the refs blocking Jared Allen? Did the refs INT Brett? Did the refs make terrible coaching decisions? Did the refs put AP on the sideline? Hmmm.
    Gotta love instant replay. Did the refs cause Chilldress to be clueless about how to use the little red hanky?

  25. Infidel says: Oct 25, 2010 9:15 AM

    8-8 wins NFC Central.
    How pathetic the NFL has become.

  26. robsterNY says: Oct 25, 2010 9:15 AM

    For once!…Childress is part of whats wrong with this team. NOW hes coming out and showing a pair?…Hes the head coach for Gods sake!..He should have done this a long time ago……Its not the refs Viking fans! Wake up and smell the disfunction.

  27. Pervy Moss says: Oct 25, 2010 9:16 AM

    Brett Favre was the best Packer QB on the field last night. He got you the victory!

  28. MACHINE GUN IBIZA says: Oct 25, 2010 9:18 AM

    This is what it looks like when the end is near. Everyone is acting crazy and there are not enough places to hide as the blame game starts.
    I for one will enjoy the spectacle….

  29. ScholczysVikings says: Oct 25, 2010 9:21 AM

    How did Chilly not challenge the TD that no-namer caught?!?!?! And to shut it down at the end of the half like that….what a goof!!! Worst coach in the league!!!

    Every week I watch him age before my eyes.
    Time to go. I can’t stand to here him whine.
    He want us to feel sorry for him because hes not young like he used to be. WHO THE HELL IS.
    Brett take you butt and go home and worry about your family problems.

  32. 18ALLDAY says: Oct 25, 2010 9:25 AM

    Favre is the old ass here but if you look at how Randy Moss is playing you would think he is the 41 year old. He is looking slow, unathletic, and very uninspired. I don’t think he knew what he was getting into by coming to the Vikes and their drama and his play is showing it.

  33. eaglesnoles05 says: Oct 25, 2010 9:26 AM

    Week 9, when djax, vick, and Peters are back in the lineup, we’ll see exactly who is gonna come out of the NFC in the end… Even if they somehow lose to the Colts.

  34. GoVikes84 says: Oct 25, 2010 9:33 AM

    Aaron Rodgers was no surgeon out there.

  35. Mikey says: Oct 25, 2010 9:38 AM

    @ epping16: I think they would have to put him on IR to get him off the field. He’s just not going to leave the game willingly. He’s proven that over the years.

  36. VikesLover says: Oct 25, 2010 9:41 AM

    I’m just glad our front office was savvy enough to go out and recruit Favre. They know how to identify talent.

  37. Simon12345 says: Oct 25, 2010 9:46 AM

    Favre doesn’t sound like a guy who is confident and fired up to fight his way out of this hole. He really sounds like that “old, beaten down old man” that Sean Peyton spoke about in the speech he gave to his team before last year’s NFC Championship game. Don’t get me wrong; I like Favre. I actually feel kind of sorry for him. I hope he fights back so he ends his career on a positive note but this doesn’t sound good. The Vikes may have to start looking to get Jackson in the game…

  38. Bogie says: Oct 25, 2010 9:48 AM

    Bottom line the Vikings have NO SHOT WHATSOEVER without Favre,,,he’s a make or break player…everyone knows that by now

  39. TBomani says: Oct 25, 2010 9:52 AM

    So Hollywood26, what you’re trying to say is that you have no concept of what karma is?

  40. superius says: Oct 25, 2010 9:55 AM

    So instead of will he retire or won’t he drama of the offseason Favre has managed to create a will he play or won’t he drama from week to week?

  41. Pervy Moss says: Oct 25, 2010 9:58 AM

    The state of WI is still celebrating to angel trumpets and devil trombones this morning.Fat farm girls were impregnated at an alarming rate,beer was sold in record numbers and fat cheesy snacks were consumed by the millions.

    Vikes will pull it together and run 6-0 in the division, they sure won’t get any trouble from GB. Hey packfans you sobbered up yet?
    ___________________________________
    Yeah….when you get done complaining about the refs, let us know what other horseshit you’d like to fill us in on. It came down to Mr. Wonderful going color-blind again. Good thing that Moss trade is working out. Clay Mathews was face raped all night and finally got a call on the last drive of the game….I suppose that was rigged and the refs shouldn’t have called that either, eh? Spare me.
    BTW…it’s s-o-b-e-r-e-d….put down the Grain Belt and try it once.
    You are looking live at the same comic act that we as Packer fans watched for the last 5 years this clown was in town. Do you people really think he played with a broken thumb on his throwing hand..? Really? The shoulder surgery in NY and the ankle and elbow crap are just that….crap. This has been this guy’s MO for the last 7 years. I see the texting is all BS and going away soon…..not.
    What happened to the injured elbow….? He got called out on his fist pumping antics and that miraculously went away. He limps around after the tackle and off the field like he’s re-enacting a Civil War skit….but gets in the tunnel and walks just fine. Then, he leaves the podium “toughing it out”, trying to make us all think he’s some sort of super human who really should be on crutches or worse. Then he tells the press that he never let the trainer look at him…..because it was bogus. There will be stuff coming out on this guy long after he’s in the HOF. Drugs, womanizing, faking injuries….all that, and more.
    For Deanna Favre having a new book out and looking for any possible promotion and exposure….where was she and the rest of the hick clan….? At the lawyer’s office, if I had to guess.
    Time to get out the tip-ups, queenies.

    Minnesota should be EMBARRASSED for allowing Green Bay, with three d-linemen, to harass Favre all night.
    Officiating ain’t the problem; that offensive line is BAD.

    Chilly called out Favre? It’s about time someone calls out Chilly for that horrible play calling. The best and easiest job in the league is the Vikings OC. (I am going to leave DB out of this because I think Chilly is doing this).
    In order to be the Vikings OC, all you need to remember is like 4 things…Hand off to AD…ON THE LEFT SIDE!!! He always makes something happen on the left! Second, Pass to Moss over 10 yards! If you throw it to him under 10 yards it will be INTed. He cannot cut back that quick. To slow within 10 yards. Throw it over 10 yards, Moss will catch it or a PI will be called. Third, Harvin in the slot, crossing out. If you throw it to him on the slot crossing in, he will not catch it. Finally, take a chance!!! At the end of the half Vikings players and fans were wondering, why not try Moss once more!

  50. SJ Apollo says: Oct 25, 2010 10:37 AM

    “It is a glorious day in WI indeed for you won your biggest game of all time.”
    It was a nice win, sure, but our team has won Super Bowls. It’ll help in the Packers quest to win the division, but we don’t celebrate division titles here.
    While a SB title seems unlikely given all the Packer injuries, this was supposed to be the Vikings’ year. This was the year they went all in by begging Favre to come back and trading for Moss as the missing pieces of a championship-caliber team. Instead, the Vikings appear to be a 6-10 team with a coach/player schism, disgruntled-about-their-contract-players (Moss, Peterson, Rice), a perverted quarterback who continues to destroy his legacy on and off the field, and we appear like we’re heading towards a work stoppage for next season. This is hardly the ideal climate needed for the Vikings to get taxpayer support on a stadium that is necessary to keep them in town.

  51. Krashie21 says: Oct 25, 2010 10:37 AM

    Why is that when Favre (Fav-ruh?) loses, throws an INT, fumbles or even throws an incompletion the limping and the grimacing of the elbow kicks in, but when he throws a TD he jumps around and fist-pumps his throwing arm?
    I can’t wait for this guy to LEAVE because he’s the biggest self-absorbed phony that ever set foot on a field.
    When the league closes in and is ready to suspend, him, watch……he will retire. There’s no way he finishes this season.
    The poor play combined with the suspension he’s staring down will push him out the door.
    Couldn’t be happier for an organization that sold its soul for Lord Favre (Fav-ruh?) and will now have to wait another 50 years for a championship.
    Hahahahahaha!!!!!!!

  52. Dougy says: Oct 25, 2010 10:37 AM

    The Packers have 8-8 written all over them, and Packers fans know it. Vikes have 9-7 written all over them, and Packers fans know that too.

  53. shiftyshellshocked says: Oct 25, 2010 10:43 AM

    You know guys, I wouldn’t even be that upset about this if not for the fact that there’s ALWAYS some goofy call or non-call that ends up making or breaking this team. Didn’t we learn in ’98 that you don’t take a knee with 40 seconds left in the half like Denny Green did in NFC championship game with time outs left? Not throw a red flag on the Pack touchdown in the back of the end zone? Shank call, close but hit the ground. Brett just throwing terrible int’s, along with some beautiful passes. Getting beat buy a Packer team that is as banged up as they are, never thought it would happen. Got to hand it to Aaron, that S.O.B. can pick apart a defense. Time for the Vikes to do some soul searching or this season is going to be over very soon. Too much talent to be this poor,and to Chilly man you have got to start getting in the ball game or you will be gone at the end of this year. SKOL BABY!

    Yes. The refs were poor again. That has been a constant for all Packer games. It seems like they keep trying to rotate in veteran crews, who then choke….for both teams. Very strange.
    Still, the Pack had 10 starters out and won. That’s very sweet!!! Next up: a tough Jets D. We warned you about Brett…this is what he does. He will not change. It’s why TT went a different direction, and for all of you who cried about it….you were wrong.

  58. packers4life says: Oct 25, 2010 10:54 AM

    I see you Viking losers are still trash-talking. May I remind you of the final score from last year?
    and oh one more thing…quit blaming the refs you damn hyprocrites. Just last week you were criticizing Packer fans for blaming officials but here you losers go crying like you usually do. Grow a set and take the loss like a man.

  59. SaintsDieHard says: Oct 25, 2010 11:00 AM

    I’m sure it was the Saints fault not BrINT’s, right Viqueen fans?? …. I mean, We were the ones who took that ankle out LAST YEAR, remember?? HAHA! Im so glad those Cry babies are having such a shitty season! Even though we may have lost to the Crappy Cardinals and Browns, and barely lost a game that we should have won against the Falcons…We are still 4-3 and still in the hunt and BEST OF ALL….We Still Beat the Vikings ass! WHO DAT!!!

    A fan from the 651…
    Ignorant fans might be blaming the refs but I assure you anybody that knows anything about football should know that the blame solely lies on Childress. His job is to put his team in the best position to win games and he has failed to do so not only last night or this season but his entire time with the Minnesota Vikings. The two most recent and obvious situations of this are the premature failed 2-point conversion and now the decision to give up on your team at mid-field with 2 timeouts and 20 seconds left of the first half. There can be an argument made that the Vikings are the most talented team in the NFL but without the proper game time decisions how can they use it to their ability

Your fans are the classiest and your brats the juicest! How come we have to be stuck in the North with such a power house team? It’s just not fair….

  63. AlphaBean says: Oct 25, 2010 11:12 AM

    Favre played himself out of a starting spot in game 1. 20 million dollars, Favre’s ego, Childress’ pride and the fact that the media NEEDS Favre to keep playing for readers/viewers etc. are keeping him in there.
    Someone made a good point about how his interceptions are followed by a “Oh God I’m in so much pain, which is why I threw that” scene. And after every bad pass, Chris Collinsworth channeled John Madden and blamed the receiver. EVERY SINGLE TIME. This has been going on for the last year and a half. Just pay attention. “See, Berrian should have stopped and gone across his body and held onto the ball while the Safety hit him. You’ve GOT to do that!” or “Harvin stopped to get open in the zone but he should have kept running because Favre wanted him to.” Collinsworth was even blaming Moss for being covered!
    Our D line needs to wake up and Favre needs to do what’s best for the team and let Jackson play. And contrary to popular belief, Jackson is not a terrible player. He was a project who was forced to start too early, yet he still won games. Then he came out and outplayed Gus Frerotte, but lost his first playoff game like most young QBs do (he didn’t lose that game alone BTW), and he was “terrible” again.
    We Vikings fans need to focus less on making childish jokes towards the Packers. They have their own issues to deal with, and so do we.

    Was it just me or did Favre have a miracle cure to his ankle injury on the last play of the game. The guy is limping around for the cameras but then on the last play he falls, pops back onto his feet then runs to his right full speed and throws the incompletion. I think he was hawking it up for the cameras with that phantom ankle injury.

  66. Alpha Male says: Oct 25, 2010 11:19 AM

    Brett’s INTs were game killers, but let me just say something to Viking fans.
    Having now been on ALL sides of a Favre-centric game (as a Packer fan), I honestly think your coach is holding you guys back as much as your QB.
    If he wanted to pull Favre, then pull him. For Chilly to sit before the press and talk about how he was thinking about it was kind of weak. Easy for him to say that after it’s all said and done. That, and not even trying for a hail mary at the end of the half was pretty pathetic.
    What a waste of a great Peterson performance for you guys.

  67. CaptainMarvel says: Oct 25, 2010 11:23 AM

    This game aside…My #1 gripe with the NFL has always been the fact that not all plays are reviewable/challengeable. WHY??? Pass-interference is not challengeable, yet it is the single biggest game-changing play by the refs. And they get it wrong all the time!!! Yeah, I’m upset that they took a potential TD away from Moss on a 50-yard pass with a TOTALLY BOGUS PHANTOM pass-interference call. But what I hate is that the same thing could happen next game. This needs to be addressed by the league.

    “That’s the worst officiated game I’ve seen,” said Childress, whose team fell to 2-4 after losing four games in the entire 2009 regular season. “That referee came over and apologized to me for not calling a hold on the scramble by [Packers quarterback Aaron] Rodgers. And I’ll tell you what, that’s his job. Protect the quarterback and look at the left tackle. Look at the left tackle hold his tail off.”
    Awwwwwwwww, the queen fans take after their coach. Did Childress apologize to his team for not challenging the Quarless TD? Did the REF apologize to Childress after Walker blantantly held & pushed Jennings on Rodgers 2nd INT? Did the REF apologize to Childress after every play that Loadholt held CHIII? Most likely not.
    Shut the hell up.

    Bears are sliding, Vikings are done. Packers? They have lost 3 very close games, and still find themselves tied for first. We’re commmmmming…..
    I still have a special place in my heart for Favre. Being a Packer for so long, I respect what he did for our Green and Gold. BUT, he should have hung em up after the Giants game. His legacy would still be whole and pure, and he would be halfway to Canton…
    Also those pics of his dinger were meant to be sent to Deanna, but were instead intercepted. The tendinitis in his elbow caused it….

Pats are 5-1, yes, but the defense is still suspect and Brady is pedestrian at best this year.
    Everyone has to learn to wait until the games actually being played to start chirping. There’s upsets every week and the line will probably only be 3.0 to 4.5.

    And right now he’s at break. I’d be willing to bet that T-Jack would’ve got that team the win last night.
    This team isn’t being led by a clueless clown in Chilly…..Favre is running this team. They implememnt a game plan and Favre goes out and does what he thinks they should be doing instead. Instead of dishing the ball to the greatest RB in the league, let’s audible and throw it to the opponents….again. This clearly has turned into the inmates running the asylum in MN. The blame lies on Chilly, but only for not yanking BrINT.
    Like it or not, Favre is costing the Vikings big-time in these games, and all because he wants to go out big….not like some Trent Dilfer turd who hands the ball off and lets his defense win the games for you, like he should be.

    I’m no Favre lover, but my experience allowed me to see an individual who truly wanted to beat his former team, and was emotionally distraught and physically spent at the end of regulation time. He played the role of GLADIATOR one more time, albeit with the 3 chinks in his armor.
    What his future is nobody can be sure, but should we never see Brett play again, I will always remember the sportsman he portrayed this game. He truly regrets there was no fairy tale ending this time.

    It’s sad that Favre just doesn’t know when to hang it up. Reminds me of Muhammad Ali in that last fight with Larry Holmes. Ali was a shadow of his former self and Holmes out of respect did not batter him as much as he could have. Contrast that with Joe DiMaggio or Pele, who both walked away in their glory. It would not surprise me if Favre calls a press conference and retires this time for good. It is the perfect time…bum ankle, Chilly throwing him under the bus, and he would also scape the whole Jenn Sterger mess.

  83. jrmbadger says: Oct 25, 2010 12:12 PM

    I hate to tell you Viking fans, but Loadholt was holding and facemasking all game on Matthews and getting away with it. I think the refs finally paid attention when Matthews ripped off his own helmet so that Loadholt couldn’t grab his facemask.

    Wait a sec. Isn’t Chilly the one who just “had to have” Favre? It’s like the great looking girl you always wanted to date that despite your best efforts turns into a total dud.
    Next year Chilly will be in the CFL, Favre will be in divorce court and then the Vikings will get started to on what they should have done to begin with…and that is building a team for the future.

    Randy Moss,his talent and leadership is top notch.Defenses can’t ignore him. Making Harvin better by the day..

    Why will the Vikes be lucky to win 9? Because of the harder schedule? With that logic, GB will be lucky to win 8. You are smart enough to realize they have basically the same schedule, right?
    And if you want to use the trend defense for your ignorant theory of why Favre will fail, then let’s look at the Pack’s recent trend. Losing season, playoffs, losing season, playoffs. Now, I know common sense isn’t your strong suit, but even you should have enough to fill in the blank of the next year’s outcome.
    ___________________________________
    Yes. Because of the harder schedule. Favre is NOT who you thought he was. Jared Allen hasn’t decided to start playing yet…or doesn’t know how to while sober, and that team is led by complete incompetence. Funny how the O-line of the Packers was last year’s joke but yet this stellar core of Pro Bowl linemen is suddenly incredibly suspect and now on the other end of the joke. Thanks God for you, the Bears O-line is worse or Favre may have been killed by now.

    Being a Pats fan there’s no way I’m saying we’ll steam roll over the Vikes next week. With all the dumb ass plays and turnovers that the Chargers made there is no way that game should have ended so closely. The Pats SHOULD have been at least 17 points up on them at the end of that game, not 3. How does your opposition PUT DOWN A LIVE BALL TWICE and you still only win by 3!? pfft.

    What a drama queen. He’s got a 45 inch verticle after what he thought was the game winning TD, but needs a walker when the play is overturned.
    He sprints right and throws a bullet (off his bad ankle by the way), incomplete, then hobbles to the sideline and conspicuously refuses treatment from team trainers.
    Then he sits in the locker room crying after the game all while his teammates come console him for his loss.
    How anyone buys this crap is completely beyond me.
    And then today we hear the greatest of all QB’s Trent Dilfer blaming Childress for not supporting Favre (how’s $20m for support) and for not allowing him more freedom in the offense.
    This has gone on too long.

  92. mikemcsaint says: Oct 25, 2010 12:47 PM

    Packer fans- As a Saints fan I can not imagine having to put up with these whiny bastards year, after year, after year…..
    It must get tiresome of hearing an organization that has won nothing constantly making excuses for why they lose and never really looking inward (I do not compare the Saints to the Packers as we have won 1 SB and you have won many and many more championships). After last years NFCCG, Saints fans had to endure, and still do the ire of Viking fans due to their own teams inadequacies. While there are som really good Viking fans ( I met several of them when we played earlier this year ) most of them like, Pervy, Cusoman, Sando, Mr. Humble, Mrs Teve, and the rest, seem to lean on excuses every time they lose. And you have to put up with this every year. Whew!!! Better you guys than us. Good luck the rest of the year.

  93. BENCHTJACK says: Oct 25, 2010 12:50 PM

    The Vikings just don’t have enough talent anymore to overcome both Childress and Favre. Favre saved Childress’s forskin last year and now Chilly is enabling Favre. It’s a slow train wreck folks. I wish Favre would walk away.

    If he was the franchise, wouldn’t the team trainer be working on his ankle, arm and everything else thia am and the coach saying that he may not be able to go?
    I mean he was limping bad at the end of the game but apparently that goes away the next morning????? He must know that his ankle isn’t broken from his med school days.
    Funny, I didn’t hear Chilly saying anything about being worried about Favres condition?

  95. JRG3 says: Oct 25, 2010 1:28 PM

    As much as I LOVED watching this game, any Packer fan/ Packer player/ Players wife…ANYONE, knows Favre could have just as easily thrown a bullet to the endzone for the win. Thats the favre I know…either way. If he threw 3 bad passes to lose it (which he did) or he throws a perfect touchdown pass to win.
    Im happy as H3ll the Pack won but with #4 under center you live and die with him. Could gone eitherway.

  96. Razor Sheldon says: Oct 25, 2010 1:30 PM

    I love the arrogance of these moron Green And Yellow fans patting themselves on the back after this game.
    You were given the gift of a TD on 3rd down, that for some reason wasn’t reviewed. You also avoided a clear PI call against Harvin when he caught the winning TD, as he was shoved out of bounds before he even touched the ball. Earlier, Shiancoe’s TD was clearly caught, yet inexplicably the refs overturned the call? No logic there, since there was definitely no conclusive evidence. I won’t even mention the Moss PI call, since nearly every receiver does this including a few of yours. To make that call in that position is again suspect.
    You guys snuck away a home field victory through the refs and an incompetent head coach, make no mistake about it. Now you’re 4-3 and can’t stop gloating. Somehow I’m not surprised… can’t wait to see the cheese tears come streaming down in December.

    The whole country saw what a fraud BrInt Farve is. He was fist pumping like he was auditioning for the Jersey Shore the whole game, then “gingerly” grabs the elbow on bad throws. He sure was able to jump around like he had the House of Pain broadcast into those purple ear plugs he was wearing when he threw the non-winning TD by Percy. Then he limps around when things go bad. What a diva.
    Hey BrInt, even Italian soccer players say you need practice on your injury faking skills!

  98. BroncosFan says: Oct 25, 2010 1:37 PM

    Those picks looked a lot more mental- than ankle-related.
    The Vikes should get back to basics. Run Peterson and sometimes Gerhart on 75-80% of 1st & 2nd downs, and, if it’s a 3rd and 2 or less, run them again. Once the D starts cheating, burn ‘em with Moss, Harvin, or Berrian. Then it won’t matter who’s the QB, or what the state of his ankle, ego, or marriage is.

    We thank Favre for his magical run last year and all the plays that came just cuz he was here(The TD to Lewis was the greatest sports moment I have ever witnessed in person and the loudest!) We thank him for coming back and giving it another shot. He is giving it all he’s got…but he’s 41 and it’s showing. It’s obvious that he’s hurting and in turn hurting the team.He almost pulled out another one last night but it didn’t work and it’s not always going to but at least we had a shot..That being said our O-line is in shambles and maybe a more mobile QB would help….AP is a beast and Moss made Culpecker an all pro in 04…TJ can throw deep and Moss keeps plays alive plus Harvin,Shank,and Cam plus when Rice Krispies comes back…Just sayin’. Fire Childo….this man can not coach and has no respect..even Favre called him out and they are friends! Promote Frazier and the team will respond. We have talent and if we focus we can still do damage…Skol Vikings 4 Lyfe

But could his ankle or elbow (or any of his other excuses) get so bad that he is forced to call it quits? Possibly. If you watch him on the field, it’s so funny how he is great and running down the field and jumping when he is making good plays. Then as soon as he makes a couple bad throws he is either limping or grabbing his elbow. What a drama queen.

    Childress saying that he was about to pull Favre is also a joke. Childress might ask Brett if he wants to come out, but Childress will not make the call…..Favre will. That man should be coaching Pop Warner somewhere.
    But, in Brett’s defense (I hate to defend him), the Vikings had a whole year to recruit / trade for / buy another QB. Instead, they mortgaged their 2010 season on Favre again, begging him to come back and throwing money at him to get him to come back. THEY HAVE NOBODY TO BLAME BUT THEMSELVES, INCLUDING CHILDRESS.
    I feel sorry for the fans on Minnesota, but the front office got exactly what they deserve for being so damn inept.

    People want to give the guy a free pass but he’s killing them right now.
    Why Minnesota chose to abandon the run at the end is beyond me. That’s on the coaching staff folks. The Packers could not stop Peterson and MN played right into GB’s hands by chucking the ball all over the place. Unfortunately, Favre threw almost as many completions to the Packers as he did to the Vikings.
    Enjoy the offseason Childress. You and the rest of that team are done.

    Hmmmm…Did Jenn Sterger have anything to do with the ankle??? So he might not play next week?? Awfully convenient to get “injured” this week? Packers know how to play and Farve can take his washed up ego, ugly mug, and limp lower half and retire already.

    Even as a long time vikings fan, I have enjoyed many of the games Favre played in. He was one of the best in his time. I liked the way he was able to handle the ball and the defenses. It has now come time to put reality in check. No offense Brett. It is time for him to accept the fact that it is over. That would mean putting Taylor in. OK he has not shown us very much either. HERE IS MY POINT. About the only things we are going to win this year as it stands is probably most beat up QB & the most screw ups. Starting with Chilly Willy being the most incompetant coach in all of football.
    I say we go ahead and put Taylor in. Let him get out there and get some hands on education about the game. Only one of two things can happen. He can become a better player or he will prove to be unworthy of the job and title of starting QB. If the latter becomes the case “HOPEFULLY” Someone with a little more game savvy Than Chilly will make the decission to dump him too. Either way it is time for Chilly Willy to be moved on.
    Like I have already said this is not a winning season for us. Lets at least use our heads and make what ever we can out of it.

    Got to give Favre some credit for being a very smart fellow and always has his diva brain in gear. Some people are questioning his faking of injuries lately. Just connect the dots it’s not that difficult. He knows his is in big trouble with his wife and the NFL with the texting issue. No way is that diva going to ALLOW the commish to end his consecutive games played record. He did screw up with the elbow tendonitis excuse because he couldn’t continue to gunsling the ball down the field with velocity if he has a bad elbow. That just wouldn’t fly. So he comes up with the cortisone shot and all is well with the elbow. Now he has come up with the ankle so if the commish is coming down on him he will sit because of his ankle. Good old Brett, always looking out for #4 first and foremost.

    @ Stumblebum…Who is this Taylor that you talk of?? Lawrence?Chuck? Elizabeth??

    JimmySmith: Excellent analogy (Col Klink just rocks the house) but at this point they don’t need that bespectacled wimp anymore…..the situation calls for intervention from the hardest of the hard…….Major Hockstetter. Just lettin’ ya know.

    I’m sick of Favre. Time to give T-Jack another try. Favre is single handedly costing us these games. T-Jack couldn’t do any worse?

    Sorry, but I couldn’t stop laughing that this. What your name states and then what your actually stating here is a contradiction. Not trying to be disrespectful, but I couldn’t stop laughing.
    Any Viking fan who keeps talking about the refs are just plain blind to why they really lost. I was watching the game with my band mate, who happens to be a Vikings fan, and in the first half of the game I turned to him and asked, when AP was out for an uncommonly long time, “Why would Chilly not be playing AP right now? I haven’t seen Pickett in there for a few plays, so obviously his ankle is bothering him again.” He just shook his head in disbelief. If a team is down to it’s last three D-linemen, plus Chilly should of known about Jenkins straining his calf and wouldn’t be playing, our best lineman, and you have arguably the best running back in the league, football 101 states you would run the ball and attack, hit them hard. There’s no way they would have any gas left by the end of the game. Put the blame on where it needs to be, your coach.

    Packer Fans Hate the Vikings and their fans and Viking Fans hate the Packers and their fans…..but Gosh I feel bad for Viking fans having such a bad Head Coach. Dumb and dishonest…. Ya think he will drive Brett back to the airport or will Brett drive him ?

    I agree with juicy_melon, Chilly is the problem. He needs to go.

  121. Ted_Thompson says: Oct 25, 2010 8:51 PM

    Yeah Chilly sucks, he’s an idiot.
    BrINT is BrINT.
    Had the queens won their idiot fans (stupidest of which would have to be Pervy) would be gloating and rubbing it in the Packer fans faces. Instead it’s nothing but whining about bad calls. Purple idiots. Enjoy this losing season. You will taste defeat many more times, perhaps again to the Packers who I’d like to remind everyone is THE GREATEST TEAM TO EVER PLAY THE GAME!!!
    Skol Packers!

    The real story here isn’t Chilly calling out Favre it’s Packers fans booing Favre.
    For EVERYTHING Favre did for the Packers, and putting them back on the map of relevance, I cannot believe Packers fans booed him off the field last night.
    Favre was your team, your franchise, your city and your state! He was the ONLY reason why you were any good in the 90’s and 00’s. THE ONLY REASON! No one remembers who any of the other guys were because they didn’t matter. A bunch of no names and Brett Favre. And that’s how you fans pay him back! How pathetic.
