I hope I get him in the draft. He and Adrian Peterson will be a good FF combo.

I don't care if he eats d**ks and cheese for supper if he can score.

Spell it Favre
Say it Farve...

My guess is that its a french creole (Mississippi) name that is probably pronounced more accurately like 'Fahve'... and it became americanised into "Farve"

Edit: according to some site that comes up high on the google results: 'Favre: Southern French and Swiss French: occupational name for a smith or ironworker, Occitan fevre (Latin faber ‘craftsman’). Compare Faber.'

Also babelfish translates "fevre" to "boilerman"

Didn't the NFL Commish say it wrong when he was drafted? Said something like "Fave-ruh"???

Yep, it's pretty funny. I'm sure it's on youtube. They play the soundbite on ESPN radio sometimes when they are talking about him.

There is just something wrong with "retiring" and then hooking up with a different team. I don't know what it says in the rulebook but it seems like the Jets (and Packers before that) could have traded him and at least got something in return.

I could be wrong, but I think the Pack did trade him to the Jets b/c they still owned the rights to his contract. That's why you didn't see him wind up with da Bears or Vikings last year.

I think the Jets released Favre after the draft, so at that point he's a Free Agent.

This came up last night while chatting with a Bears fan, he hates Favre and was suspicious that this was a move to position Favre/Adrian Peterson against the Bears... he felt threatened by this, no doubt. I can see what he's talking about, they're gunning for the conference.

So he feels 'threatened' that another team wants to win the division the Bears are in? What planet is this guy living on? I thought all teams (except those in Cincinnati) try to win the division they're in...

Well the Bears and the Packers do have a long history of rivalry and with Farve's drama leaving the Packs to eventually fall into the Vikings roster... maybe "threatened" wasn't the word.

Don't forget, when Favre was a Packer and wanted to retire/trade the first time, the Packers under no circumstances wanted him going to another NFC North team. They traded him to the Jets for a first round pick or something. If the Jets, in turn, traded him to the Vikings or Bears (who were both in the market for a QB) then the Jets would have had to give them something like 2 additional first round picks. The Jets released him, making him a free agent and not having to give up further picks/compensation to the Packers. So yes, the Favre to the Jets thing was a setup for him ulitmately ending up with the Vikings. <--Last sentance is my opinion, but I have a great amount of faith in it.

Favre carted off field

The 41-year-old quarterback spent a few minutes on a training table at the Vikings' sideline as staffers held a towel to his chin. He sat up after trainers applied a compress, then was carted from the field as a few fans booed.

Minnesota was beaten 28-18 and fell to 2-5.

The Vikings said the injury was to Favre's chin and that he needed 10 stitches.

Could it be a sign Brett? You're old and feeble now, maybe next time it won't be something that a few stiches can fix. You need to retire...oh wait you've done that a couple of times already.
