Farve Is out

I'd be very surprised if Favre missed the game. Of course he needs to be with family as soon as possible, but he has not missed a start in like 190 games. I'm sure his family will convince him to start if he wavers at all. No way would his dad want him to miss this game.

Personally, I'm sure I would be in no shape to do much of anything after something like that. Favre will probably play and do his dad proud.

You know, I can see Favre still starting the game and "doin' it for Daddy." He is such a competitor and he got that from somewhere - likely his father, like most of us did.


I'm guessing that will happen too.

I feel bad now for yuck yucking farve all these years now. :(

Rest In Peace Farve Sr.

How does this change tomorrow nights game???


Do yourself a favor next time and don't post something until you know for sure, Farve was never a scratch for this game, and now as it turns out he is going to play.

Favre update

Packers: Favre will play following death of father
The News
One day after the death of his father, Brett Favre is expected to take the field and play Monday night against the Raiders, according to the Wisconsin State Journal. Favre's 58-year-old father, Irvin, died Sunday of a suspected heart attack or stroke while he was driving. Services and visitation are planned for Tuesday.
Our View
It would certainly be understandable were Brett to opt not to suit up Monday night, though reports indicate that Favre has been encouraged to play by members of his family. Our condolences to Favre and his family.

Anybody think Favre will just step in and take the first snap, then walk off with a wave of his cap to keep the streak alive? Or will he play through it?

And while I'm asking questions - how short do you think the leash will be on Favre tonight? This is a pivotal game for GB.
Thank God for Football Season.

Nah I think he is more concerned with winning games for GB then he is keeping his streak going. Makes no real sense for him to play otherwise.

It could work either way but Favre has the guts to have a great game and with him being on MNF I am hoping he does well, not only just for fantasy purposes (where i need him to have a HUGE game) but for the dedication he is showing towards his team and his profession.

You honestly believe this is a good question??

His father died first of all. He decided to play.
His team is fighting for a playoff spot.

And you think he's worried about a damn streak??

Nah, Favre isn't concerned about the streak. Now, I am sure that it may be in the back of his mind, but the forefront has to be winning out so that the Pack might make the playoffs. Also, had his family not urged him to play, I don't think he would. A prediction- he will go nuts tonight. 320 yds 1 TD 1 rush TD
