There wasn't 1.5 minutes left, there was 19 seconds. Even if Favre had tossed it to the sidelines, they go for the FG, miss, and give NO the ball with @ 15 seconds left at their own 37 with NO having no more timeouts. NO would have to toss a good 25 yard sideline pass in one play, get out of bounds just to kick a 54 yarder themselves. Highly unlikely.

He fucked up. He tossed it in the middle of the field with 19 seconds left to not give his team the chance to win.


You are correct, there were only 19 seconds, so Longwell would have had to hit a 55 yarder to win it. That's still pretty iffy, and the Vikes fumbles are what truly cost them the win, not the pick that might have led to a 55 yard FG that might have been good.

Exactly! Fuck! 5 fumbles....thats what cost them the game...nothing other than that. You cough up the ball that many times, and not win? on you.

Fumbles cost them the game, but they had a chance @ the end iffy as it was they had a chance and Favre blew it, point blank all other excuses Favre took their chance away from doing anything with that interception, you never know if he would have hit or not, but Favre took away their chance, point blank, i blame Favre, Adrian, WR, and also the OC or the coach for the horrible playcalling down the stretch once they got to the 35 yd line.

Oh BTW....

I will preface this comment by saying that I like watching Brett Favre play. I have always enjoyed his passion for the game. I am one of the few on this board that likes Favre...

With that said...

How did that fucking taste Brett Favre? Glad you threw that meaningless TD against the Cowboys last week. You showed them.

Favre's on the ground! Favre's on the ground! With his helmet turned sideways. Favre's on the ground!

HAHAHAHAHAH

It was the Cowboys duty to keep Favre from throwing that TD pass, just as it was Favre's duty to make sure his team had a chance to kick a field goal in the last 20 seconds of regulation.  They both failed.

 

BTW, there is another line to the "Favre on the ground" rap.

Can't see him getting much sympathy this time around after single-handily destroying his team's Super Bowl berth. That was a BAD INT Choke Job Right There!!

His team would have never reached that far in the playoffs without him, nor would have been in that situation if Adrian Peterson and the rest of the team didn't fumble the ball so much. I don't see how you can blame the loss on Favre when he was the team's best player on the field yesterday.

Love how Favre gets all of the hate for that and not what a terrible call the roll out was in the first place.


You've got a 40 year old quarterback with a history of throwing the ball into traffic in desperation time. He's already got no mobility but on top of that he's got an injured ankle and his entire foot is purple from it. He has been hit on every dropback the second half and looks a little gunshy.



So you're going to call a rollout - and not just are you going to call a rollout, but you're going to call a rollout and still have a deep receiver down the other side of the field as an option? Seriously. WTF kind of a playcall is that? You know that even if you get Favre on the edge, he's not going to run it, because 1) he's never been the type of QB who does that and 2) he can't fucking run with his mangled ankle anyways.

Favre probably convinced the offensive coordinator that he could run that play, more or less calling it himself.

This. The final should've been something like 45-28 Vikings.

It's definitely a questionable play for that situation, but Favre runs what he wants to run. Favre defenders have used that "the OC called it" excuse for years, but Bret makes those calls.  A good friend of mine was his team mate and friend for a number of years. He loves Bret but says Bret doesn't run any play he doesn't want to run. He'll run the called play if he likes it and change it if he doesn't.

Besides, even Favre admitted that running to pick up a few yards and set up a field goal would have been a smarter choice. He wouldn't have gotten much, but he could have just slid down and preserved the field goal try.  And there was a back he could have dumped it to as well and the play was moving toward the sideline so getting rid of it safely would have been very easy.  Throwing across his body into the middle of the field  in that situation is ludicrous no matter how you slice it.  He did what he has always done in those situations. Sacrificed the good of the team for the thrill of trying to make a miracle play.
