Not Favre From Montana’s Postseason Records

Posted by Mike Wobschall on January 12, 2010 – 9:35 am

Okay, okay. Probably a cheesy title for this blog entry but don’t let it detract from the actual substance of the blog entry.

Vikings QB Brett Favre will start and play in his 22nd NFL playoff game, by far more than any other current Vikings player. In those 22 playoff games, Favre has accumulated a bunch of impressive statistics and he’s closing in on some of former 49ers QB Joe Montana’s career playoff records.

It would take a super-human effort from Favre to pass Montana in career playoff passing yards and TDs on Sunday, but he should top Montana’s mark for career playoff attempts and completions against Dallas and he also will look to increase his NFL playoff record for consecutive playoff games with a TD pass to 19.

If Favre can lead the Vikings to victory on Sunday, he’ll have an even better shot to top Montana in yards and TD passes.

While those career playoff records are certainly nothing to scoff at, there’s another playoff statistic Favre would certainly like to add to even more than the yards, TDs, completions and attempts records – playoff wins.

Below we’ve included the career playoff records Favre is approaching and where Montana ranks ahead of him:

Passing Yards
Montana: 5,772
Favre: 5,311 (461 behind)

Passing TDs
Montana: 45
Favre: 39 (6 behind)

Completions
Montana: 460
Favre: 438 (22 behind)

Attempts
Montana: 734
Favre: 721 (13 behind)

No. Congrats you beat the Eagles. back the F up on the purple. You can’t handle all that has been accomplished and will be accomplished from a MN proud team.

    Viking in NH. Enjoy the banter. There are Vike fans on our website doing the same thing.

    Vikes will not win, they will go down, not because of past history. Dallas has proved those stats don’t matter. It will be because of the present facts that our D will dominate.

    I know, these Viking fans do have dumb comments, way to call it viking101. The Cowboys will have to teach the Vikings defense 101 on Sunday. I think that is all they are ready for right now.

    Vikings D was ranked 6th overall during the regular season, quite a bit better than the cowgirls. The only reason yours is ranked high now is because Philly doesn’t run the football.

  13. By Canadian Viking on Jan 12, 2010 | Reply

    Philly is a weak opponent, because they have no balance.

    Joe Montana is my all time favorite QB and in my opinion the best who ever played the game. Favre is my second favorite because he is so tough and so much fun to watch (at least during the regular season). Montana tended to play better under pressure and in the biggest games. Brett historically has blown it in big games. He seems much more under control this year. Having said that, I doubt the Vikings can beat Dallas. The Vikings offensive line stinks as does their pass defense. Peterson is the most overrated running back in the league, and Childress running Peterson up the middle on first down 85% of the time is almost like starting with only 3 downs instead of 4. Even my wife asked me why they continually do that! I’m hoping the Vikings can pull it off, but if they don’t it won’t be Favre’s fault!

    Key words here are “was” and “regular season”. This is not the “regular season”. Try me on this stat, over the last 4 games of the “regular season” Dallas’ defense is better that Vikings defense. Guarantee it. Past behavior is the best prediction of future behavior. Dallas has won 3 of their last 4 games, Vikings won 1 of 4. Dallas has allowed 14 points in their last 3 games, Vikings have allowed 44.

    Get the picture?

    Brice…I gotta admit I like your banter. Only one problem. I just went to your blog site and saw 26 entries, ALL of em were ‘boy fans. Not one from a Vike fan. The interesting thing? Half of the entries were talking about how your D had better step up this game ’cause we (THE VIKINGS) are the biggest threat you’re gonna see.

    I just want to add that we are also the LAST team you will be playing against this season.

    Hey Dennis – I appreciate you commenting on the blog, but if you are going to have a strong opinion and then throw out stats, please make sure you are accurate. In your comment 2 slots above mine, you say that “Childress running Peterson up the middle on first down 85% of the time is almost like starting with only 3 downs instead of 4.” Actually, these are the real numbers. On first downs this season, the Vikings ran 267 times. Of those 267 first-down rushing attempts, the Vikings ran it up the middle 74 times. That comes out to 27.7%. You said it was 85%. I’m not sure where you’re getting your facts but they are wrong, or you’re just making them up.

    Secondly, for everyone’s information, the Vikings average 4.49 yards per carry on 1st down and they ran it up the middle on 26.7% of their total attempts this season. Adrian was the 5th-leading rusher in the NFL this season with 1,383 yards and he led the NFL in rushing TDs with 18. How those numbers equal being overrated, as Dennis says, I’m not sure.

    Anyway, the real stats I just laid out distinctly contradict the misinformed opinion about the Vikings running game that was given by Dennis.

    Brice you first state that we shouldn’t talk about the reg season because its not. Agreed. But then you talk about your last four games of the regular season. Romo won 1 playoff game and that will be it this year.

  21. By brice on Jan 12, 2010 | Reply

    Canadian, the only reason I brought up the regular season stats was because it was stated that Vikings have the best season ranked D between the teams. The point I was trying to make was that their 6th ranking was an average of the season and not a true picture of how the defense is currently playing. Much like everyone (media) talks about Romo and December…….

    To me, the thing that really matters is not how the team did for the entire season, because, other than record, the first game has less to do with the most recent games they have played. Momentum is huge. Trust me, I am a Cowboys fan, I know this. i.e. DC 2007

    FYI, Viking in NH, Dallas is not the Wild Card team. They won their division. Even if they were, Vikings would still lose. Dallas was in the same place Vikings are back in 2007 and the Giants beat them. Look for much of the same. And before you type, check your facts.

    Brice, I agree with you about momentum. It IS huge. And I don’t discount that the ‘boys have some going right now. But here’s a momentum stat you also need to consider.

    Vikings = 74 points in last 6 quarters of play (discounting the OT in NY).

    Cowboys = 27 points in last 6 quarters. (It took Dallas 13 quarters to get 72, or 14 quarters to make 79 points.)

    Yes, the Cowboys have some momentum. But I would argue the Vikings momentum is by far superior, based on that stat alone.

    To Mike, you dont know nothing about best QB in the league interduced to you Brett Favre 35 to 10 Vikings.

  36. By brice on Jan 12, 2010 | Reply

    ibleedpurple. Totally great stats but in those last quarters, Dallas did not need to score that many points to win the game, the most they would have had to score would have been 17 points. They shut out Washington and they shut out Philly and then held Philly to 14 points. Technically they would have had to have 19 points since you can’t score 1 point in a game (Philly and Wash).

    You know as well as I do that most teams start to run the ball to bleed the clock and it slows the point scoring down.

    You guys only had that luxury once against the Giants and scored 3/4 of those points in the first half, and thankyou by the way for that stomping of the She-men

    Ibleedppl, hey da boys scored 34 points in dis game alone, but dey pretty much had da game wrapped up by half time, so we started conservative mode. And also, we played against a high powered team that had a franchise record in points scored in a season, who did u guys play? Ny? That’s a joke dey had absolutely nothing to play for, boys will win big and get your backup qb ready!!!

    Now I’ll be about the 4th person to actually comment on the topic at hand, Joe Montana was an amazing quarterback, I’ve lived in the bay area the majority of my life including during Montana’s era, and I couldn’t think of a better Qb to break his records then Brett Favre. Good luck Brett, whether you break records or not, get us the W!

    Brice, nothing to hide or skew. It was six quarters ago that we started our momentum swing. You brought up momentum. I was pointing out when we started our momentum, and how many points were scored in such a relatively short period of time. I then compared the fact that it took the ‘boys over 3 games to accrue the same number of points during their current momentum change. We are the more explosive team. Your D has its work seriously cut out for it to suppress both our running and passing attack. =)

  50. By Antonio on Jan 12, 2010 | Reply

    I think there is no clear favorite in this game. On one side you have a red hot Dallas team playing with a lot of confidence.

    On the other hand, Minnesota this season has been dominant in the Metrodome and for every superstar the Cowboys have the Vikings have an equally good counterpart. They are also rested and coming off a 40 point win.

    Allen-Ware
    Favre-Romo
    Peterson-Barber

    The key is Adrian Peterson definitely. If he dominates and the Cowboys struggle against the run, Favre and co. will destroy the Boys on play action.
    It’s going to be an awesome game. I think the Vikings win 34-27.

  51. By brice on Jan 12, 2010 | Reply

    Antonio, very true. Only correction is that it will probably not be Barber vs. Peterson. It will be Felix Jones.

    Ibleedpp – Gotcha. Wasn’t sure. I still have to discount the Giants game because they were like playing Detroit by that time of year, but you have a good point. Very explosive.

    Check out my stat about what the Cowboys have allowed over their last 4 games versus what the Vikings have allowed. Not only momentum but sustainable momentum.

    Gonna be a good game!

    I will be back tomorrow. I think I am going to become a Viking website fan, atleast. More educated people here it seems.

    I hope Favre shuts all the haters up. he’s faced some tough defenses this year that have hit him hard and many times and he kept getting up. he’s the toughest guy ever to play quarterback. he’s not going to get “carted off the field” and what’s with the vicodin comments? that was over 13 years ago. I do agree that Brett needs the offensive line to give him decent protection. he has been able to move out of the pocket pretty good at times when he’s being pressured. I don’t think it’ll be a blowout either way. should be a close game. I kinda like the Vikes being the underdogs (according to the media)…it reminds me of the Cardinals, not many people gave them a chance to beat the Packers.

    OK Vikes, you all had a great regular season, too bad there is no trophy for such a thing. Brett Favre is my favorite player of all time and im a cowboys fan, but im looking at it realisticly. Favre is older and slower. We have a dominating line and our LB’s Ware and Spencer are going to cause chaos. And Adrian Peterson will fumble like in Chicago. Great year, but this is OUR year.

  73. By Nate F. on Jan 13, 2010 | Reply

    I respect Justin and TylerDCfan. You two are rooting for your team which is completely understandable. The rest of you Cowboy fans are just bashing on Brett Favre and how much our schedule was easy. No schedule is easy. If that was the case then the cowboys should have blown out the Redskins the first time. Dallas 7 Washington 6 (that’s an embarassing game). Saints should have beaten the Bucanneers. Philly should’ve have beaten Oakland. So you can’t say Vikings have an easy schedule because at the end of the day you still have to win those games. And if I’m not mistaken the Colts and the Saints had plenty of opportunities to lose earlier in the season but the opposing team kept giving yo mistakes and turnovers.

    But it’s the playoffs so let’s just take it from there

    I like how the media and everyone else bashes Favre for throwing costly intereceptions but I watched Tom brady throw 3 INT and 1 Fumble and no one said anything but “he’s just having a bad day because he’s coming off of an injury” But when Favre threw the interceptions due to a shoulder injury in his throwing arm when he was on the Jets the media teared him apart.

    NOW we see Rodgers throw an INT on his first play and a Fumble on the last play to win the game but EVERY ONE is only talking about how great he is to lead his team to a come back.
