    I just caught the tail end of the NFLN show this morning. I believe he said that he didn't blame Farve for the last interception because "he was just trying to make a play".

    What game was he watching?? This is why I don't watch that show, he makes too many bias opinions. If that were Romo or anyone else he has an agenda with, he would have hung that guy out to dry!!!

    Thats total bull****. If Romo had made that thrown every media outlet, fan, and the Pope himself would have castrated Romo. Tony is held to a ridiculously unfair double standard. Thats why I want him to win a SB so badly. Just to rub it in the face of every single media pig.

    Deion and Favre are friends, no?

    Kinda like he was against the G-Men in overtime two years ago.

    Sure he's a great competitor, but when you play 17 years in this league you're bound to win at least one super bowl. He has costed his teams dearly when it matters most 90% of the time.

    Deion Sanders is certainly entitled to his opinion.

    But generally speaking, when a Quarterback throws an interception, aren't they "always just trying to make a play".

    Also, I don't think Deion Sanders dislikes Tony Romo but I do believe he dislikes Jason Garrett.

    People just have to come to grips with the fact that Tony Romo will forever be criticized until he wins a Super Bowl.

    Once he wins a Super Bowl, he will be criticized but not as vehemently as he is now.

    All great Quarterbacks went through the same road as Tony Romo.

    When Peyton Manning lost all those Playoff Games he was good regular season player.

    But once he won a Super Bowl, it was all about is the best to ever play the position.

    Well, he WAS trying to make a play...56 yards was out of range. So Deion was just speaking the truth. Dumb throw Favre could have gotten a few yards for his kicker by just running.

    I agree with regards to Romo--fair or not, they would have buried him if he made a play like that in the same situation. Total double standard there.

    I disagree, but we all have our opinions.
    In any case, he is a shoo-in first ballot HOFer.

    Only Brian Sipe's pick in 1980 was stupider, mainly because his team was already in FG position.

    Deion is a tool.

    Thats the thing with Favre. A few plays earlier he made one of the sickest throws i've seen in these playoffs. Then all of a sudden he makes one of those big time blunders.

    Actually what blew the game for the Vikes was that 12 men in the huddle penalty. It put MInnesota in obvious passing situation to get in position to kick a field goal.

    Probably could blame his oline too. Like we did last week. Favre was getting killed out there.

    The Vikings would have beaten the Saintys easily in Minny (I'm glad they didn't as i was pulling for NO). The home field dome is a giant advantage for the home defense...huge. It looked oh-so-much like our line last week. Getting a lead early is huge for the away team.

    Brett having a strong arm has been a blessing and a curse. There are times like the last int vs the Saints where Brett puts too much confidence in his strong arm that he can get away with foolish passes. Most guys with a weaker arm would not think to do it.

    It was the earplugs they were wearing. The 12th man did not hear the coach say "shut up", he thought he heard the coach say "stand up"...then he ran to the huddle.

    I don't agree that he's a hall of famer but he has ended some great seasons with poor decisions.

    1 blinkie in 17 years, while playing on very competitive teams isn't that impressive IMO.

    He blew it yesterday, just like he did in 07. He's a good QB, great competitor, but he isn't the Messiah that people make him out to be.

    On the nosey.

    he's a product of the ESPN highlight reels era.

    His great plays are extraordinarily great.

    But he can usually be counted on to do some really dumb things at crucial moments.

    That last pass, from a 40 year old veteran, boggled the mind. Mark Sanchez doesn't throw passes like.

    Agreed, some put him up there so high that no one else even compares in their minds. That's crazy. Bradshaw, for example, said he was the best to ever play the game last night on TV. Anyway, the other end of the spectrum (and equally crazy) are those that say he is a very good but not great QB.

    He's by no means my favorite QB of all time. But like I said, he is an absolute lock HOFer.

    Close. He said "best he's ever seen." But assuming he's seen guys like Marino, Montana, Brady, and Manning play, it's still a curious statement.

    I agree with you guys, but let's give Brett Favre a little bit of a break on this. The man isn't having a good day today, it's got to be a hell of a feeling he has right now.

    I agree. Brett made a big mistakes but others made some big mistakes that hurt just as much. Fact that the Vikes did have 5 turnovers and it still took the saints an OT to win says allot about Favre and the vikes.

    while my passionate hate for favre likely coulds my opinion, there are 2 simple facts to that play.

    he could have run for the yardage. it was there and a given.

    if this is his "final" year (again) then i let him go happy that the last pass of his career was both intercepted and his own fault for a bad decision.

    i'm tired of the media slobber all over mr "yes i need to hold a press conference to say i don't know what i'm doing yet" favre. if the vikings would have won the game i'd NOT watch network TV till the superbowl was OVER.
