After the Carolina Panthers dominated the fourth quarter Sunday night in a 26-7 win over the Vikings, Favre acknowledged he had a "heated discussion" with coach Brad Childress.

Favre claimed the coach wanted to take him out of the game to avoid taking any more hits from Julius Peppers and the Carolina defensive line.

The Vikings (11-3) clinched the NFC North title hours earlier when Pittsburgh beat Green Bay.
"Brad wanted to go in a different direction. And I wanted to stay in the game," Favre said. "It's not 70-6, but we were up 7-6. I said I'm staying in the game. I'm playing."

It didn't work out well, with the Panthers outscoring Minnesota 20-0 in the fourth quarter.

This is not the first time Childress has been unable to pull Favre from a game according to the Minneapolis Star-Tribune. The coach tried to sit Favre during a 17-point victory at Detroit earlier this year only to have Favre refuse (in six other victories, Favre sat late in the game). Perhaps against Detroit he wanted to pad his stats. Perhaps he didn?t want a backup to get a chance. Perhaps he just ?loves to play the game? as the announcers slobber.

You just wait, in one of the next two games Chilly will set down Brett.
He has to.... it's A VERY POPULAR topic in Mpls. today.

Actually Favre did not claim it was to keep him from taking more hits. His quote is as follows (taken from ESPN):

"We were up 7-6. Yeah, it's not 70-6, but we're up 7-6," Favre added. "So I said, 'I'm staying in the game, I'm playing.' I don't know if it was exactly to protect me, or we had seven points, I'm not sure. That's his call. But we talked it out. We didn't have time, I didn't have time to sit there and say why or what. My response was, we've got to win this ballgame and I want to stay in and do whatever I can. Now, unfortunately, I didn't do that, but that was my intention."

Now in my opinion, whether you like Favre or not, that is what I want from any of my starters. In the end it is the coaches decision, but I want players that do not want to come out. I can understand the player being upset, whether it be Favre, TO, Moss or whoever.

Del, I completely agree.

What I do think is funny, No one on here has said it, but thats because most of the people on here know sports and actually watch the games instead of just see a score and assume.

A lot of my friends, when they see Minnesota on the losing end of a score, assume it was something Favre did to make them lose. Obviously, if you look at any of the games that they have lost, you will see He didn't.

This game was lost as team. The MN Defense decided they didn't want to tackle or stop anyone, the recievers didn't want to catch VERY catchable passes, the backs didnt wanna bust through the holes......It was just a bad game.
A Playoff will not be any more fair than the BCS.
No matter what happens, Favre > Rodgers.
St. Louis Cardinals = Class of MLB.

I agree with Favre. They are playing for homefield. When they were down 20-7 I would have taken him out, but at 7-6 play to win.

He said it in a confrontational way though.
