Man, that game was ugly for about a hundred reasons.
But I couldn't not watch.
If Adrian Peterson hadn't fumbled and the Vikings had instead scored at the end of the first half, I figure it's a vastly different game - in retrospect that coulda been the play of the game. (I also think that instead of falling apart after that, Peterson held it together really well.)
Favre had the living crap beat out of him, and you and I both saw the lane to the first down at the end of half #2. He didn't have that far to run. An easy kick. Victory.
But the guy's easily a hundred in football years, he was obviously tired and had the gimpy leg, so whatever.
His next awful pass back across the middle that was intercepted... I don' t know. You guys think he comes back again next year?
It's gotta be like climbing the biggest mountain in the world, getting to the front door of the Super Bowl.
Myself, I think we might have seen his last pass.
Which would mean Favre's Last Stand pretty much happened On His Back.
Either Troy Aikman or Joe Buck awkwardly said after the interception something like, "Favre will be thinking about that pass... maybe... for the rest of... his life."
They didn't say "off season".
But then again, we all have thought Favre was done a bunch of times already.
Anyway, ought to be a good Bowl.
