That was a hell of a game, and another vintage Favre performance. Yep, it really looks like he can't play in cold weather anymore...LOL not.
I love how everybody is saying that now that he finally had a good game. One good game compared to 9 or however many games it was doesn't mean anything. He's lucky he faced a completely crippled Bears secondary. They didn't have either starting safety, I don't remember if another safety got hurt during the game and they also lost Charles Tillman during the game.
I like the fact that he stood up for himself and said, 'hey, i played as well as i could have.' Like him or hate him brett has a point. To sit there and pin his 0-9 cold weather record as of late or w/e ridiculous stat it is soley on him is stupid. Look at the 9 games he lost in cold weather and compare them to all his other games and I guarantee you the defenses in those 9 games gave up a hell of a lot more yards and points than they did in the other games. But you're right, that's favre's fault for not going tim tebow on his defense and rallying the troops. To say brett can't play in cold weather now that he's old because of some stupid 0-9 stat
that doesn't entirely reflect upon him
(i.e. there's 22 people on the field, hence a crap load of other variables) is like saying the Pheonix Suns can't play on TNT because they lost like 16 or 17 in a row.
Favres Stats going into last nights game with a temperature under 38 degrees:
0-7 3 TD 13 INT's 55.6 completion % 204.4 pass yards per game and a passer rating of 54.8
yeah...those terrible defenses are letting Favre down again...Favre does no wrong
All i'm sayin is this, if you packer lunatics are going to crucify favre for his 0-9 under 32 degree weather record, aka put all the blame on him, that's perfectly fine. But don't come on here pissing and moaning (like almost all of you have) when espn gives favre all the credit for leading 4th quarter come back drives and putting him on a pedistal. It goes both ways, if you're going to rip on every little thing possible about favre, then it's only fair that you let people give him all the credit where credits due or else you're all just being hypocrites.
