Favre To Be Named NFC Offensive Player Of The Week

Posted by Ryan Cardinal on January 5, 2010 – 4:15 pm

Vikings QB Brett Favre will be named the NFC Offensive Player of the Week for his performance last Sunday in the Vikings 44-7 win over the New York Giants.

In leading the Vikings to their 12th win of the year, which helped them secure the No. 2 overall seed in the NFC and a 1st-round bye, Favre completed 25 of 31 passes for 316 yards and 4 touchdowns.

    Sounds like an AWESOME way to end the regular season. I know that it’s team goals above individual honors, but to me such recognition tells you that individual players are doing their roles solidly, even exceptionally and are performing. I can tell this season is Favre from over…

    What if Favre won the Fedex Air Player of the year, won the Offensive Player of the year award, won the NFL MVP, won the Superbowl MVP and won the Superbowl on top of all that? Would there be any more doubt as to who is the best QB to ever play the game? Yeah, it’s a long shot, but what if?

    Bruce, that would be sweet! youi’re right it’s a long shot. but it’s still fun to wonder “what if?”

    And one more “what if”: What if Favre could also earn a 3rd Weekly Air MVP against the Packers? That in itself would have to be a new record: 3 MVPs against the same team in the same year. Or has that team improved too much now for him to embarass them yet a third time?

    I’m glad to be reading and writing positive posts again. The Vikings got exactly what they needed to have. 12-4 1st round bye. C’mon Vikings get ready for a serious playoff run to the Supebowl!!!

    By the way. Congrats to Sidney Rice for elevating his game to elite status. Remember Fitzgerald last year, Sidney is the ‘threat’ this year. I’m glad he is a Viking. And Brett, thanks for a terrific season, now a new season begins- finish what you started!

    I am so frustrated by Favre not being considered in the pundit discussions for MVP.
    The three names I hear most are Chris Johnson, Brees and P.Manning.
    Lets review:
    Johnson with 2000+ total yareds is impressive but couldn’t carry his team to the playoffs.
    Brees is probably the best contender with the # 1 QB rating (only one ahead of Farve) but if you want to talk about faltering down the stretch 0-3 is a great example.
    Manning threw a lot of picks and is playing with a team and system he’s been with forever. They were sooo lucky in many of their wins and gave up on the perfect season that would have argued in his favor.
    Now Favre:
    Practices 2 weeks with a team he’s never been with and walks out onto a field leading his team to a 12-4 season, a first round play-off bye, a number 2 quarterback rating and the lowest touchdown/interception ratio in history for a QB throwing 30+ TD’s. Should have been a 14-2 season as Pittsburg loss on a botched screen should have been yet another Favre amazing come back win and what about the 2nd half comeback in Chicago. If strong finishes and closing the deal have any anything to do with it then tell me what NFL player had a stronger last 5 quarters of the 2009 regular season. Favre was almost the 6th player to ever pull off a perfect passer rating last week. I got the NFL on demand this year and didn’t miss one pass. He rarely missed an opportunity, threw amazingly accurately and made excellent decisions all season. He elevated Rookie Harvin and Rice to Pro Bowl status and Petersons running is much better when Favre is let go and spreads out the Defense. Oh Yah, he’s 40! Unbeleivable.

    What is the number one trait of a good leader? Someone who makes those around him/her better – maybe even better than himself. Look at Sidney, Percy and Bernard? Is Farve a leader or what? Is this considered in the MVP considerations or is it only stats?

    I am Brett Favre’s biggest fan! I think he is the greatest thing to ever happen to football!

    In my original comment, I declared the season to be “Favre from over”. In the following segment posted about 24-hours later, “NFL Weekly Countdown No. 1: Brett Bounces Back”, the commentator proclaims “Minnesota’s season is Favre from over”. Hmmm strange coincidence and I sense my word-play made one network writer’s job a little easier that day ;) MY first use. All rights reserved haha.
