Report: Favre played with undisclosed shoulder injury

After Sunday’s loss to the Bears, the king of NFL excuse-making offered up his latest excuse for poor play.

Vikings quarterback Brett Favre told ESPN’s Ed Werder that Favre “experienced a sharp pain there while putting on a T-shirt at practice Saturday.”  The disclosure came directly to Werder, after Favre met with the media.

Per Werder, Favre said that injury “could be related to surgery he had to repair a partially torn biceps tendon following the 2008 season,” and “there was discussion about taking a pain-killing injection” so that he could play on Sunday.

Favre ultimately didn’t get an injection, and he said he suffered no pain during the game.

But the broader point is that Favre’s decision to offer up an excuse for his three-interception performance highlights the failure of the Vikings to update their injury report to disclose that Favre had a shoulder injury.  Last year, Favre’s repeated references to the partially torn biceps tendon that plagued him down the stretch in 2008 resulted in the Jets, former coach Eric Mangini, and G.M. Mike Tannenbaum facing stiff fines for failing to disclose the injury.

It’s unlikely that the Vikings will be nailed by the league office for this, especially since Favre said he was fine during the game and played all of it.  Given that he was fine during the game and played all of it, why even mention it to Werder unless Favre wants people to think that he threw interceptions not because he made bad decisions or bad throws, but because he has yet another injury?

UPDATE:  Here he is:

    The NFL should just reward the Vikings with a victory for this game.
    Never mind that they were outplayed in every way.
    Just give them the W before they flood the nation with their tears.

    Classic BrINT Favre, don’t you realize that he can’t face the reality that he sucks? Much like the rest of the CryQueen fans, whenever there is a loss, there is a corresponding excuse, i.e., loss in the Championship game, payback for Katrina, loss to GB, it’s the ref’s fault.

    If Childress had even one quarter of a testicle, he would bench Farve and starting looking toward next year. I can remember all the jubilation in Minneapolis this August when BrINT finally showed up at training camp. “Be careful what you ask” for applies in this case

  10. nxt76 says: Nov 14, 2010 8:01 PM

    Two of his picks came from receivers falling down and the third was from a tipped ball.

  11. jersey73 says: Nov 14, 2010 8:05 PM

    Have a bad week…find an excuse for Favre. It gets old!

  12. thehatefulnerd says: Nov 14, 2010 8:07 PM

    Whenever he gets hit, he comes up limping. Yet when he hits a long one to Harvin, he’s jumping up and down with glee.

  13. aintsfan says: Nov 14, 2010 8:09 PM

    Oh! Another brinterception for the biggest drama queen in the NFL. Anyone could look at Brint’s stats for the past decade and see that when he has a good year the next one will be bad. I guess that we should feel sorry for him and the other purple panseys.

  14. raideralex99 says: Nov 14, 2010 8:09 PM

    Maybe Favre should tell the truth and throw his OL under the bus. He was underpressure all day and Culter had all the time in the world.

  15. skimbell says: Nov 14, 2010 8:14 PM

    Brent’s shoulder looked O.K. when he was running around shaking his fist at the sky and holding up his We’re #1 finger after his lone TD pass. Most only hurt when he goofs up.

    Must hurt a bunch huh? 4 turnovers today. Not a whole lot of the We love Brett B.S out of the queenie fans anymore is there

  16. simplesimon1 says: Nov 14, 2010 8:16 PM

    LOL….. Come on Favre. If it’s not hurt, which I would suspect, and all that’s hurt is your pride, then don’t blame an undisclosed injury. If it is hurt, you shouldn’t be hurting your team and playing. SIT HIM DOWN ALREADY!!!!! Simple fact is Favre is playing horrible and has been nearly all year.

  17. footballrulz says: Nov 14, 2010 8:16 PM

  18. magnusthe1st says: Nov 14, 2010 8:18 PM

    Hilarious. Ed Werder is much less of a sports journalist than he is an unwavering Favre champion regardless of what he does. Why do you think Favre would talk to him? Maybe because he knows Werder wouldn’t speak a negative word to him and loft him easy slow pitch softball type questions which he could crush out of the park without much effort.

    And what’s more, this whole ‘injury’ he has is only going to serve as a major excuse to every Vikings apologist out there for why their ‘miraculous’ run last year was only a fluke and this year they’re completely overrated like we all knew.

    Let the excuses begin.

    “Favre wants people to think that he threw interceptions not because he made bad decisions or bad throws, but because he has yet another injury?”

    Or how about because his receivers were falling all over the field. Two of the INTs were the result of the WR falling down.

  30. mnmaverick says: Nov 14, 2010 8:54 PM

    I don’t think he needs an excuse with the disaster of an aoffensive line and coaching staff.

    Nobody should be blaming a 41 year old Future Hall Of Fame QB for doing the team a favor by coming back this year. Without him they don’t win a single game. End of story.

    Put Brady or Manning behind our offensive (pun intended)line with our coaching and we’re singing the exact same song.

  33. Deb says: Nov 14, 2010 8:59 PM

    He’s always been a gunslinger and INTs go along with that. No one minds when he’s winning.

    But really wish someone would explain to me why coaches have to disclose injuries of players who are healthy enough to be on the field. Is it solely for the potential impact the injury might have on the outcome–and therefore, on betting? If that’s the case, why is the NFL so concerned about facilitating the oddsmakers? If not, what difference does it make as long as the guy is able to play?

    Anyway, let us know when that starts.

  36. cdnpackfan says: Nov 14, 2010 9:09 PM

    Favre needs to start throwing guys under the bus and speaking the truth since guys like Florio cant seem to see whats happening;

    “Im really sorry I threw 3 picks today. That tip ball is on me, I should have told my left tackle I might be throwing in his direction and that he might need to block. the other 2 are on me as well…I mean I should have told Shank and AP to get longer cleats so they dont fall when I’m throwing to them. Again, i’m sorry.”

  37. atchick says: Nov 14, 2010 9:12 PM

    Wow, Florio…..you’re disdain for Farve is palpable. Yeah he should’ve stayed retired and he’s injured all the time, but hey, how many other teams don’t reveal all the injuries? I mean you were all over the Giants a few years ago over Eli’s foot.

    Did you see the WR’s sitting on the bench shaking their heads… Berrian, Rice, and Harvin. They are so full of themselves they don’t see how their ire towards Childress has let down this whole team. Rice with his ‘BUSINESS DECISION’ holdout/injury…Berrian with his mancrush on Tjack, and Harvin…Well Harvin here’s a little advice…You can’t show everybody what a STAR you are and then cry “migraine” becdause the coach called you out on halfassin it. By the way you proved him right when you caught nine catches last week. Instead of buddying up with Berrian, play lights out like last week, and take that money from him. It’d be like taking candy from a baby.

  46. comeonnowguys says: Nov 14, 2010 9:59 PM

    You guys blaming falling receivers realize that Shiancoe fell down because Favre threw the ball well behind him, so much so that when he put both feet down to pull up, he slipped? Even if he hadn’t slipped, he wouldn’t have been able to get back to the ball.

    But hey, let’s still blame the tight end. Or his new t-shirt shoulder, or his elbow that only hurts when he throws incompletions. Or his ankle that hurts–unless he’s celebrating touchdowns.

  47. snarkygurl says: Nov 14, 2010 10:04 PM

    Deb,

    You’re a person of intelligence and common sense and I look forward to your point of view most of the time. However, your blindness when it comes to Brett Favre is starting to surmount your love of the Black & Gold.
    How many times does Favre “disclose” or even acknowledge injuries after a win? You will find in your research (and I know you do research unlike others on here) that he doesn’t.
    I admire the player that is Brett Favre (& I’m a Bears fan). His stats are phenomenal. But the retirement wavering, limping after a bad play. fist pumping after a completion the next play BS is really old for most football fans.
    Bottom line: Own the screw ups or shut up. It’s really starting to negate all of the good he’s done for the game…

    What a bunch of jackasses you all are. An article by Florio and almost 50 comments, and only two people managed to point out that the first INT was on a tipped pass because the left tackle can’t cut his man at the line of scrimmage, and the last two INT’s were because AP and Shank fell on the ground.

    There’s plenty of blame for Favre and the whole team and staff this year, but lets at least try and tell the whole story, or at least some of the truth here.

    The Vikings lost today because the defense couldn’t make a damn stop on third downs, and because the game plan always calls for rushing only four guys. Guess what? Every single NFL QB can make good throws when you don’t pressure him at all!

  51. conormacleod says: Nov 14, 2010 10:37 PM

    Hey Florio, how do you think other NFL QB’s would do with their top three WR’s out of the game? In the final quarter of the game the Vikings were playing Hank Baskett, Greg Camarillo, and Greg Lewis.

    Outstanding decision by Childress to release Moss and go with that trio.

    In my estimation, the third pick was thrown behind Shanko, and he tried to stop for it and slipped but had no chance. The other two weren’t his fault. He also didn’t cover up on the fumble. But every one contributed on this loss. Special teams, Favre, defense. You name it. They can all claim it.

    “What a bunch of jackasses you all are. ”

    Watch the last int, where it was thrown, what Shiancoe was trying to do. INT didn’t happen because Shank fell down. It happened because Brett threw it too far behind for Shank to adjust.

    Then we’ll see who’s performing the jackassery, the accused jackasses or the accusing jackass. Or that jackass in the corner that doesn’t even know he’s a jackass. Poor guy.

    This is the point that fans start making excuses for Favre. It happened in GB and now is happening with the Vikes fans and media. The upside and the downside of Favre, is that he is a gunslinger. It’s great when a team is rolling and can overcome his occasional mistakes because he makes those really special plays when he plays off the cuff. But when a team is losing, he presses and creates mistakes teams can’t overcome. And it amplifies in post season play when all the competition is fierce causing him to press more. It’s the reason he won only 1 Super Bowl (a Super Bowl GB never would have won without the #1 D and a dynamic returner). Love Favre for his fire…hate him for his carelessness. And if you want to defend him for his picks today because receivers slipped, consider he threw one to a receiver on the ground (the ball was still in Favre’s hand when the receiver slipped yet he threw it anyway). The other he threw behind his receiver, causing the receiver to slip. He’s a great player, who always plays with fire, but leading the league with 16 INTs puts a lot of the blame at his doorstep.

    There you are wrong. This team is not a bunch of aging veterans and overachievers, they have a lot of good young talent. I think a minor rebuild is in order, but it won’t take long to get this team back on track. The OL may need a complete overhaul, I’ll leave that to someone who is qualified to judge them each as individuals, but the team as a whole does not need to be dumped.

    BTW, the last time the team went through a major overhaul was after the 2005 season, and it only took 2 years to get back on top of the north and back to the playoffs. This is a franchise that hasn’t had more than 2 consecutive losing seasons and no more than 3 in any 6 consecutive seasons since the merger. History (and common sense) says any rebuild/reload will be fast and they will be back in contention in no time.

  64. Deb says: Nov 15, 2010 1:27 AM

    @snarkygurl …

    Thank you for the positive comments. Actually, I wasn’t questioning that Favre tends to mention his injuries after a bad game–I’ve noticed that, too :)

    I’m serious about wanting clarification on NFL policy regarding injury disclosure. As long as a player is good to go, it seems odd that the team would have to disclose his bumbs and bruises. Such disclosures tell defenses exactly where to hit an opponent if they want to knock him out of the game. So of course a coach would want to withhold that information.

    The only reason I can see that the NFL would require teams to disclose those injuries is because they might cause a player to underperform, which could affect the outcome. That would be important to know if I were laying a bet.

    But should the NFL demand that coaches undermine their game strategy and jeopardize player safety in order to benefit gamblers? And if that’s not the real motive behind requiring active players to disclose injury info, what is?

    If the Vikings win their SuperBowl next week against the Packers “B” squad, sure it will hurt…for one week. The Vikings beat the Packers twice last year too and they still only finished one game ahead of them…and it didn’t keep GB out of the playoffs. The difference is the fact that GB has depth, is built for the future and the lng run, and Minnesota went all-in and failed…jeopardizing their longterm future.

    Hope those two wins LAST YEAR were worth it. That’s all you’re getting from the Brett Favre experiment.

    You’ve said that every week and the Vikes are 3-6. Fortunately for you Matt Stafford has been hurt all year or your team would be last in the Division.

  73. footballrulz says: Nov 15, 2010 11:03 AM

    brewdogg–that would be a great commercial. & you are correct, it wouldn;t take much to tweak this team back to contention–a new HC maybe & for sureanew QB. I’m really starting to wonder if some of the Vikes aren’t just laying down onChilly like the Cowboys did for Wade.

    Perv, a loss next week would be a real “ouch” but I am pretty happy with the way non starters have really stepped up.

    Stellarperformance, I think the Colts are getting pretty close to us with the injuries.

    2009 Vikings- 12-4, Favre only throws 7 int’s and 33 TD’s passer rating 0f 107.2.

    Favre gets all of the credit.

    2010 Vikings- 3-6, Favre leads the league with 16 INT’s, only 10 TD’s, passer rating of 72 (31st in the league).

    It’s not Favre’s fault.

  75. pervyharvin says: Nov 15, 2010 11:37 AM

    Favre is still a great qb….see last week. Just so happens that he is 41,playing hurt and getting beat up worse than any qb in the NFL.That is an O Line problem, big time. The D line can’t finish the sack and the D backs can’t cover jack. Mix that with Childo’s vanilla game plan and you pretty much sum up the Vikings failures. Sharp NFL minds don’t blame Favre for all the problems,but the hate some have for him make him an easy target. Many of his fumbles and pics are terrible o line and bumbling receivers falling,not catching etc…Like to see the leagues top 5 qb’s trying to survive behind our line with a revolving door of mostly average receivers…

  76. pervyharvin says: Nov 15, 2010 12:04 PM

    Vikings will still go 9-7 and make the post season…..

  77. Deb says: Nov 15, 2010 1:22 PM

    Pack and Colts … pfft! The Steelers play a three-four defense and have lost two of three on the d-line plus four of five on the o-line. Games are won and lost in the trenches. We have no trenches!

    This post shows stupidity, extreme bias, or an extremely low football IQ.

    They just faced an O Line worse than theirs in the Bears.

    Their weapons are better than most, when Rice comes back they will have the most offensive weapons in the league with Rice, AP, Shiancoe, Percy, Berrian, and even Toby has started to contribute when I didn’t think he would.

    Blame Chilly all you want but he led you guys to the NFC North Championship game last year. While I don’t think he’s great I doubt he is the entire problem, he was there with no MAJOR ISSUES, then Favre shows up and drama starts, figure it out.

    If you are not blaming Favre for the other day you are delusional, one was tipped at the line, yes, but maybe he should move in the pocket and make a better passing lane, one was thrown behind visante and picked off, visante would not have slipped if the ball would have been on target, and the one to AP was also thrown behind, but hwne Favre released the ball AP was on the ground, have no idea what he was thinking. Favre is the problem! Get a clue!

    The Pack have 11 players on IR as well as others that are hurt. You have no arguement. Also look at Peytons weapons yet he is still playing better than any QB in the league. Look at his players in the lineup now before you come back with a hilarious Tom Brady rant.

    As far as being a Favre fan, I have A GIANT MAN CRUSH ON FAVRE, but I have changed my mind, I will now root for whoever wins, and will continue to make idiotic points and post like I know something because that is who I am. I like to argue and have no social life whatsoever so this is what I do. I spend roughly 8 hours a day on here and if you guys don’t pick on me for being ignorant then all I have is my PS3 at home to play football on pretend that if the JV coach would ahve gave me a chance my SR. year I could have made the pros.

    This week I’ll cheer for the Falcons!

    No Tom Brady rants. We were clobbered, and I’ve congratulated the Patriots on several threads for an excellent game and a well-deserved win. The injuries on our o-line and d-line don’t explain or excuse the poor play of the rest of the team last night. We were outplayed and outcoached.

  85. Deb says: Nov 16, 2010 11:26 AM

    @majikbullet …

    No “finally!!!” I’ve always been straight up when we lose. Belichick is a heckuva coach. Don’t know that there’s a better strategist in the pro game today, so you could easily say that no matter who they play. But they still lose from time to time. Tomlin’s good–just has some growing to do yet. LeBeau is the best at what he does, but doesn’t X&O well against BB. That’s why BB has continued his success against us through both Cowher and Tomlin.

    Where did you bury the old majikbullet? Hope you didn’t make a mess.

  86. footballrulz says: Nov 16, 2010 11:39 AM

  87. majikbullet says: Nov 16, 2010 2:42 PM

    Deb, I made one heckuva mess, but it is for the good of the site to stop with all my nonsense and to get real. Yes you may be straight up, and you guys have more injuries than anyone except the Pack and maybe the Colts, and whether people believe it or not, injuries are a legit excuse when you are one of those 3 teams. I think GB has like 11 guys on IR??? Agreed BB is the man, LeBeau and Caper are great at what they do, I don’t blame LeBeau for his lack of success against the Pats, I blame the 3-4 defense, that is the spot where you are vulnerable, look at two talented defenses form last year, Pitt and GB, they both have talented secondaries but when they played eachother they threw for a ton of yards each. If you can pass well you can be successful against the 3-4. The only way to get around that hole in the 3-4 is to be able to rush the QB. BB just knows how to take advantage other teams holes better than anyone.

    footballrulz, what does my name say? that should answer your last question. as many have said on here I have been an absolute joke. good change is good. most everything i’ve said on here as been a fabrication, no kid, i tried to father brext favres kid but that didn’t work, i lied. My business i run is a traveling thrift sale. This week special are globes, and my old briefs, slightly stained front and back but still have plenty of life, size 44. To address the traveling part of my business, i typically set up between BrINTS cheeks, so where BrEXT goes, so goes “my business.”

    Since you all know I jump around with who I cheer for this week I will cheer for the Falcons. We should have kept Mike Vick.

    Well majik–you put up a good front. So can you & ACS be friends now, since he didn;t reall insult your son?

    Personally, for PFT reasons only, I think it sux the Vikes are doing so bad. I miss those running verbal jousts between you, Super, Beer Cheese, ACS, Pervy, Chicken, etc.

    Other than that though, I’m glad the VIkings are tanking, no more BS for FOF, Contra, sando, vaginevikes, grave, arctic, etc.

    I finally realized God hates the Vikes, who am I to go against God? Wait I think Favre is God…..hmmmm

    Yes, Vikes have the worst fans in all of sports, and I’m sure most will disappear, other than a few legit Vikes fans, and some crazies, i.e. arctic, contra, gravy, pervy that will always hang around being obstinate with nothing to back it up.

    I will probably be one of those former Vikes fans that disappears soon, so enjoy the new and improved Majik while you can.

My only loyalty in life is to Brett Favre, where did you get the idea that I was loyal to a team? Team loyalty shows a sense of family, team, a group. The fact that I have followed Favre around shows I’m a narcissist, me me me me me. You didn’t catch on? Am I pathetic for following a 41 year old has been? You tell me.

    One thing is absolutely clear – the people who write the articles and comments on here DO NOT watch the games. If Favre is the king of excuse making, why has he played 20 years without missing a game? And he was without his top 4 receivers. No Rice of course, no Berrian, no Moss of course (Childress’ fault), and Harvin was 50% and only played half the game. The Vikings were using Hank Baskett, Greg Lewis, and Greg Camarillo (who dropped a pass). Favre has been incredibly non-excuse making in not calling-out the coach for the incredible lack of receivers.

    If you watch ONE of his press conferences…you’ll understand why everyone else other than you says he is making excuses….I haven’t heard Manning, Rivers, or Rodgers bring up injuries every press conference to justify the teams performances. Again watch ONE presser and you’ll hear nothing but excuses! His excuses has nothing to do with his streak, it excuses are why he is playing like one of the bottom 3 qbs in the league.

    Not necessarily true Captain. There are still some good, valid football discussions here at PFT. Sometimes they digress to a slugfest or venture waaay off topic, but you’re going to have that with sports fans who believe their various teams are the best in the league.

    Seriously lets just clear the air once and for all.
    Favre has the following injuries effecting his recent play: 4 hangnails, one boo boo on shoulder, an ankle that hurts only on Tues- Fridays, a groin injury from from Jen Steger, a bad facial spasm from his wife bitch slapping him, and a horrible tear in his ego as he looks in mirror and asks ‘What the hell was I thinking when I came back?’.

    My understanding was that they were going to wait until people did something before banning them. Jeff hasn’t even been here. Why would they warn everyone, then ban him before he got a chance to heed the warning. And he did talk football–that’s how I know him. I don’t sit around with people while they’re gay bashing.

    If he has been permanently banned, he can’t resurface. When they permanently ban you, they use your IP address, so their system will recognize and block you no matter what you do. You can erase all your cookies and use a new e-mail address–won’t matter. As long as you’re in the same location, you can’t post. That’s why everyone needs to be careful and follow the rules. But I still don’t think they’d block people without giving them a chance first.

    Okay … Munchkins are beckoning. Better than vodka!!!

    DVR on pro game tonight. Enjoy Bears fans :) My Tide is up. ROLL TIDE!!!

    ruvelligwebuike saysThe reason Bears fans and Packer fans have a mutual respect is because we have teams, traditions and a fanbase worthy of respect.
    ======================================

    *toasting pervy’s denial with a most excellent martini*

    @Deb – I hope you find the elusive Jeff. I would love to have some more intelligent input here. It’s at a premium you know. :-) How did your Tide do?

  135. pervyharvin says: Nov 19, 2010 2:39 PM

    Hey Snarky….great choice of drink for a world class orginization….the MN Vikings!

  136. Deb says: Nov 19, 2010 2:47 PM

    majik?? Lost control of the iPad before I could try anything else. My sis-in-law may need an intervention soon LOL

    @perv … nothing’s better than the kids :)

    @snarkygurl … Yes, smart commenters are rare and precious :) I’m not allowed to saw how the Tide did. They keep erasing the post. So they’re offended by mentions of iPads, children, or college football. I’m guessing it’s college football, but who knows. Apparently maturity abounds behind the scenes today. Watched your Bears when I got home. Congrats. Sure Miami is still whining. They’re good at that.

    at 41, isn’t his entire body one big injury?

  138. ArcticEdge says: Nov 19, 2010 7:12 PM

    I see the Favre haters are still out and about. The simple fact is that Favre is playing through injuries no other QB could play though. If Manning or Brady had these injuries they would be on the IR. That fact that Brett Favre, future HOFer and living legend continues to play is why he is considered the best ever! After he destroys the Packers this weekend, you’ll start hearing the national media talk about Favre as an MVP and Vikings as a Super Bowl contender!

  139. pervyharvin says: Nov 19, 2010 8:39 PM

    Laughing at the MVP but you got one thing right. Favre is the toughest SOB to ever wear a helmet. I admire strength, and that guy is the man.

    Most football players would not play his “glorified ankle sprain” and tendinitis in his elbow to the media to make his built in excuse for when he fails. Most players hide injuries…i.e.Drew Brees. And Manning would not leave the game from a laceration his his chin, heck, the most impressive “tough guy” on the Vikes is Percy Harvin for battling his injuries and migraines, THAT is a tough SOB, not BrINT.

    Well, well. I see Contra’s little brother finally crawled out of his hole & decided to grace us with his presence. And it’s been so peaceful around here.

    Brett Favre Claims He’s One Loss Away From Career-Ending InjuryNovember 19, 2010 | ISSUE 46•46

    06.05.10 EDEN PRAIRIE, MN—Though Vikings quarterback Brett Favre confirmed his ailing right shoulder was “no big deal right now” and that the broken bones in his left foot were “uncomfortable but endurable” for the moment, the three-time MVP told reporters Thursday that one more loss could exacerbate his injuries to the point where he would have to retire. “At this level, and at my age, it would take just one game-breaking play—a deep pass, a long run, anything—by the opposing offense to aggravate an injury to the point where I can’t go on,” said Favre, who later claimed his injuries become more serious with each defeat he suffers. “It’s entirely possible for any given team on our schedule to outscore me so badly I can’t physically continue my heroic streak of consecutive starts.” Favre also added that any victory he led the 3-6 Vikings to this season would be an amazing display of toughness

    Leave it to a FudgePacker fan to believe a story from a known parody site. LMMFAO

    Hey cheesedoodle

    I know it’s a parody–idiot

  146. footballrulz says: Nov 20, 2010 3:39 PM

    But thanx for reposting it–more times it’s out there, the better

  147. doodlesmack says: Nov 20, 2010 9:01 PM

    No problem Mr FudgePacker fan. Anytime I can help further prove the shoe size IQ you have, the better I feel!

  148. majikbullet says: Nov 21, 2010 9:10 AM

    Heading to the game today…..can’t wait to hear the Vikings fan boo their own team at home like always!

  149. footballrulz says: Nov 21, 2010 10:28 AM

    Wow cheesedoodle. That was really brilliant. I am impressed. Hope you didn’t burn too many brain cells coming up with that one.

    Not hard to match IQ’s against 12 year olds. Enjoy the game today. Good luck to ya. Try not to pitch too much of a tantrum if the Vikes lose. Mom will not let you use the computer.

    Snarkygurl–You’ll just have take Arcticedge with a grain of salt. If the Vikes lose today it’ll be gone for awhile anyway. There’s one good reason to pull for the Pack.
