    The four wins came against the Atlanta Falcons, San Francisco 49ers and twice against the division rival Detroit Lions. The losses? Well, they all came at the hands of the Dallas Cowboys. And all were played at Texas Stadium.

    The Cowboys, who were favored by at least nine in each of those games, according to Pro-Football-Reference.com, won 27-17 in 1994, 35-9 in 1995 and 38-27 in 1996.

    “I remember what the biggest issue was, we couldn’t get past Dallas,” Favre said Friday before a SMU Athletic Forum luncheon at the Hilton Anatole in Dallas. “Now, they were good. They were good. Each year we felt like we were gaining. But I always felt like, if we don’t get them at our place, we’re always going to be second fiddle.”

    Favre completed 56 percent of his passes in those games, averaging 283 passing yards per contest and totaling five touchdowns and five interceptions.

    The following season when Favre and the Packers went on to defeat the New England Patriots, 35-21, in Super Bowl XXXI, the Cowboys lost to the Carolina Panthers, 26-17, in the divisional round of the playoffs.

    Although some of his teammates wanted their Super Bowl run to go through Dallas, Favre admitted that he was rooting for the Panthers to knock off the defending Super Bowl champs.

    “I was thinking, ‘Please, please, beat them.’ I just had enough,” Favre said. “Other guys were saying, ‘I want them again.’ I’d had them enough. That was the biggest issue, we just couldn’t get past Dallas.

    I agree, the Cowboys are very lucky to have him. I admit he had more than a few ' W T F ' plays in his career with the Cowboys. :huh:

    However, he still gives us a good chance of winning most every time he takes the field.

    On the original topic, I loved how we 'owned' Fartve and the Fudge Packers in the mid '90's.

    Just like the Thanksgiving Day game when Troy was out and Jason Garrett was the starting QB. It was a shoot out, but we still pulled out a big 'W' in the end & Fartves Fudge Packers went home crying.

    :cry:

    Yeah I was at that game, went out to get a drink at halftime and Packer fans at the game were just giving me hell. Walking out of the stadium after the game was sweet. One of the best Thanksgiving games I have ever seen.

    during those days my favorite battles was when Eric Williams and Reggie White battled. Williams owed Reggie, I never seen an OLineman beat up a defensive player they way Eric would beat on Reggie.

    Wow. His dream was to be a Cowboy.


    Instead, the Cowboys became his worst nightmare.



    He was actually going into Cowboy games feeling/knowing he was "pre"-owned.... Going to lose.

    If all the players who wanted to play for Dallas had actually played for Dallas, that would have been a super elite unstoppable dynasty.

    Yeah...until the playoff game against the Vikings a couple years ago...we certainly didn't own anybody that day...well except Romo owning the turf after every other play. I still have nightmares about that game after having just killed McFlabb and the Eagles two times in a row..I was sure we would have Favre's number again.. The whole games a big purple blur..almost like getten beat by a bunch of Barney the dinosaurs...I bet purple is Tony's most UN favorite color...

    I watched that game in a hotel room in Vegas with a lifelong MINNY fan. It was the worst. And I lost $100 at the sports book.

    Favre, throwing it in the red zone in the 4th quarter on 4th and whatever just about put me over the top. I told my buddy at that time that the Football Gods don't like that stuff. The next week was the bounty game in NOLA where Favre got absolutely battered. You don't tempt the Football Gods.

    Anyone who wants him must not be considering his 5 TDs and 5 INTs in those games.

    I would rather have Romo.
