    I was disappointed because I was anticipating a blowout and with Brees and Shiancoe on my fantasy team, thought the second half was going to turn wide open. It didn't. I agree that AP should have seen more touches and the Minnesota wideouts look sketchy. Perhaps a Percy Harvin WR screen and a deep ball or two from Favre could have opened up the Saints D some while ramming AP down their throats. Once the Saints keyed in on Shiancoe (to my dismay) their passing game was done. They really miss Rice and if VJax can get his suspension down to 3 games, may be a player the Vikes should go after.

    I would have liked to see the Saints go deep more in the second half. With the Vikings shorthanded secondary, I thought Brees could easily exploit them and did the first drive and the TD Meachem dropped. Just thought their play calling was too conservative even though they hardly ran it in the first.

    The thing I didn't like about Favre is that I thought he took too much time after snapping the ball to get the play going. He was so keen on misdirection through fake quick passes (which is fine every once in awhile) that it took him a couple seconds before he'd hand off the ball or start looking downfield for his receivers. the play I remember most was the failed Shiancoe screen which looked to be setup beautifully but Favre had his back turned to the line of scrimmage and by the time he turned around to throw it, it was too late and he had a defender right on him. He's got to know that with screen passes, the line isn't holding the d line for long and the play is hugely contingent on timing.

    Favre is and odd duck in regards to his need to trust his WR's and his current difficulty is that Shiancoe is one of the only one's he trusts. Javon Walker was a guy Favre started to trust before Walker left GB and I think Walker is a much different player and person these days. There's no magic formula for how that trust with Favre develops. Favre played with some WR's for years (Bill Schroeder, Robert Ferguson among others) that he never developed that trust with and only targeted when forced to do so.

    Maybe if he played in preseason he could hit his receivers. Also maybe I don't root for Favre because I think he is the biggest Douche Bag in Football. You like him go ahead and root for him. You think he's the only NFL player to get hurt like that?

    Probably the only 40+ QB to get hurt like that in history.

    I never really understood how he's a douche. He wasn't sure if he was going to retire or not. Ohhhh no what a monster. I'd rate about a million players higher on the douche scale.

    Just because he was hit late a few times? He had a thigh bruise, a pre-existing sprained ankle that was aggravated during the game, and a cut on his forehead. That's not excessive or unusual. By his own admission, San Fran hurt him worse than the Saints did last year. And even if he DID get beat up, it doesn't excuse him for being a douche. He and T.O. are the only two players in the NFL who literally hold us hostage with their bullshit for six months during every off-season. I'm not saying that it's entirely his/their fault - ESPN and etc have to fill programming hours. But Favre knows what he's doing. Certain players just want the attention. He's one of them. If anything, I give Owens more respect, because at least he's honest about it and not hiding behind some "Aw shucks, I'm just happy driving my tractor" crap.

    I still don't really get why any of that makes him a douche. There are way more attention-seeking players in all sports. I honestly don't think favre did anything wrong.

    Would you have been happier if he retired and we had to watch Tavaris Jackson/Sage Rosenfels week in week out? Football is much better with favre in there.

    he's a douche to his fans, management, backups, and teammates for not attending training camp, for one thing. he looked like ass on thursday. whether he's intentionally seeking attention or not, his actions are douchey and show a major lack of respect for those around him.

    Name a bigger one over the past five years. There aren't any that I can think of.
    You know what? Maybe if he didn't make the Vikes wait until a week before the regular season to let them know whether or not he was going to grace them with his presence, they could do better than Tavaris Jackson. Does the name Aaron Rogers ring any bells? How about Mark Sanchez? This is what happens when a team decides to "move on". They can draft and train a replacement who is actually halfway decent. Then, he can take over, and you can stop spending your entire off season wondering if you are going to have a QB or not. The sixteen days a year he's on the field, he's a good QB. But the rest of the time, he's actually holding the Vikings hostage with his bs, and they are just either too shortsighted, or afraid of pissing him off to do anything about it.

    Lebron could have handled his situation in a much better fashion, but:

    1. While it's hard to remember now, up until a few months ago most people liked LeBron
    2. He's in his mid 20s and it was his time dealing with free agency vs. Favre, who is 40 and has been around the block a few times
    3. Can you really blame Lebron for leaving Cleveland to go play in Miami with a bunch of his buddies?

    Uh... Not even close, IMO. James was over and done in three months, and we won't have to deal with that shit again. Favre's "look at me" happens every year, like clockwork, and takes up Feb-August of every year. It's not that I don't think Favre is a good QB. He is. But there are a lot of good QB's who dont require year round ESPN coverage, and crippling a team in the offseason to appease their ego.

    Lol @ Favreophiles. GB fans know wassup.

    GB-Phi should be a pretty good game on Sunday. Pretty confident in most phases, but the idea of D-Jax getting matched up on anyone who's not Woodson or Nick Collins is terrifying. Covering Celek shouldn't be bad, McCoy doesn't scare me...O-line against blitzes is a little troubling and their special teams will destroy the Packers'.

    I think the Rams actually have a good shot of upsetting Arizona today, fingers crossed.

    week 1 is always the best. all the anticipation finally released, all these surprises because we really don't know which teams are good and which ones suck.

    except for my fantasy football team. there's a roughly 100% chance that it sucks.

    Hahahahahahahahaha Bengals SUCK. Poor Cincy management should have fired Marv Lewis long ago, now after last year's flukey season (and predictable playoff flameout) they have to endure at least another year of sucking.
