Favre Also Up For ‘Never Say Never’ Moment Of The Week

Posted by Ryan Cardinal on November 9, 2010 – 7:25 pm

In addition to being up for the FedEx Air Player of the Week award on NFL.com, QB Brett Favre is also nominated for the GMC Never Say Never Moment of the Week.

To vote for Favre for that award, click here.

With perhaps their season on the line, the Vikings were down two touchdowns late in the game when they asked Favre to pull off the miracle. Once again, he delivered. In his 46th career comeback victory, Favre threw for 147 of his career-high 446 yards and two touchdowns in the final 4:39 of regulation and OT to help stun Arizona.

    Brett, with all of your injuries, and your age, you did what no one else could do! Congratulations! Everyone in the team really stepped and pulled this one off! Brett, Shiancoe, Adrian, Percy, Greg, Bernard, Jared,etc., etc., etc. The whole team played at the end like last year! keep it going guys! You still have it! Sidney, we missed you, but this week, everyone stepped up and wowed us! Congratulaions! Brett, I have never seen anyone fight so hard for his team! You are a great leader!

    Great JOB — Favre you are truly deserving of the hall of fame accolades. What is with that negative first comment on this blog? No win in the NFL is easy. Cleveland at the bottom of the pack just beat the 6-1 Patriots and the defending Superbowl champs, the Saints. The Cardinals did make it to round two in the playoffs last year— LET US BE POSITIVE! TRUE FANS ARISE!! Shake this negativity off the blogs.

    The difference this week is Favre ran the offense-there has been a problem with coaching for the last few years.

    too bad favre is the interception king you wont win games like this all the time turning the ball over he just makes it harder on himself like I said he can lose games for us and win games for us so far he has done more bad than good but i’m a favre fan regardless but he needs to be more consistent.

    AWESOME BRETT– No other words for his performance– that was a comeback like few could orchestrate in today’s NFL– Can you say Brady? Manning? Brees?
    FAVRE is an elite quarterback– AWESOME –

    Thank you BE SANE & SERIOUS. Let’s stop analyzing this game and focus on the next one. The game isn’t about how many yards Brett threw for, or Cam’s strip; the only thing that matters is the final score and last time I checked, we won. I’ll take that win any day of the week.

    oh did wait he threw 2 picks this fact is being completely overlooked. I’m a straight up vikings fan but I hate favre no matter what he does he’s getting praise i’m sick of it

    YEAH- WIN OR LOSE– the negative comments keep flying. What is wrong with this picture? I have seen this for decades– every season I boldly declare we will win it all– and multitudes say to me, yeah, but we will choke. AND we do. ENOUGH!! ALL TRUE FANS ARISE!!! ANYONE WHO UNDERSTANDS TRUE COMMITMENT AND THAT ENCOURAGEMENT AND PRAISE MOTIVATES– get on board– we will take that train to Dallas. Call all your friends– let’s get enough positive comments on these blogs that the cancerous naysayers go hide in the dark. We have an AWESOME TEAM– we can do our run in the last half of the season instead of the first– everyone thinks we need to start so strong or there is no chance– well Brett brings the warrior and winner attitude we need–

    Wait what type of bear are they? I mean most bears are endangered so slaughtering them would be illegal. So how about beating them into submission then watch as they run and hide.

    It is obvious obvious this team is great, despite the record. We can beat any team, but not when the refs have timely and biased calls. Calls like the cut block called tripping taking a TD off the board against the Steelers in the last minites and replacing ir with a pick 6 on the next play. Anyone see any calls like that lately or ever? It could only get worse if they allow scoreboard malfunctions dictate our losses.

    What about the interference call in the OT NFC Title game? When reviow happens, perhaps the league could allow challenges to any calls and allow us to reject participation of refs who own them, if not change the outcome at the time. The Loadholt mask was obviously the right call, but ss was Chilly Dog’s complaint. So we see they fine Chilly after the fact. Why not fire the refs? Because they are in it with them.

    The trend seems to be for us to give 5 sentences of facts, with the naysayers response being an INANE comment based on nonsense or opinion.

    I spent several minutes going back and forth between this blog and pro football reference to show the naysayers how Childress is actually ahead of 5 HALL OF FAMERS in percentage of victories. So I am thru responding to their questions for some time.

  26. By Frederick Jones on Nov 10, 2010 | Reply

    The response to my 5 Hall of Famers was the Wade “Whiskey” Phillips also had a great record.

  27. By Frederick Jones on Nov 10, 2010 | Reply

    Wade was not given a chance in Dallas. Management talked about firing him BEFORE the last game. He was given no support. It’s not likely Garrett will do any better. History shows the replacement coach almost always does worse than who he replaced.

  28. By Frederick Jones on Nov 10, 2010 | Reply

    Like I said before, the Naysayers response to THE MANY blogs I put out, was to give 12 word INANE comments that a 3rd grader could give. They are not dumb, they just do not want to take the time to give a good argument. Naysayers just take what you give and try to be funny with Inane comments. I’ve only seen 2 or 3 comments by the naysayers that made any difference.

    Q, I’m sick of fake viking fans like yourself. Favre threw 2 picks but the one by the end zone was CLEARLY NOT HIS FAULT! Mckinney who has a very important blocking assignment, QB’s blind side, let his guy through because he faked out Mckinney and the defender hit Favre as he was throwing the ball. The ball never even made it to where it was suppose to go. The other pick was Favr’e fault because he didn’t see the defender coming across. So then Brett moves the team down the field and scores 14 points in less than 5 minutes plus the overtime winning score. He did a h e l l of a job and you praise people when they do a great job. Enuff said!

    these whiners are the type of people that live miserably. They are glass half empty type people. Sad for them. Rice is coming back, and I hope that the whiners on here find another team, cause you will be back on the bandwagon once we dominate here down the road. Your whining has been heard now go let your voice be heard on some chat line for weenies.

    Taser Refs:
    I agree it’s sick to watch refs (it only takes one ref on the ref squad) throw games. It takes just a couple of ‘timely’ bad calls. The opponents may say some garbage like “they called penalties on us too” but often it is legitimate and not game changing and obviously bad calls. LIke the packers game last time or the Saints game of the playoffs etc. When the NFL reviews these obviously bad calls these dirty refs need to be fired. Some make the point that a team can just play harder but in close match that is a lot to ask when the ref came determine the outcome.

  34. By rocksalt on Nov 10, 2010 | Reply

    another perspective on this coach:

    Former Vikings beat writer Sean Jensen of the Chicago Sun-Times, who now covers the Bears, writes in advance of Sunday’s game between the two teams that the Vikings remain chilly toward Childress.

    “We know that Childress doesn’t have our backs, so why should we have his?” one player told Jensen. “We’re playing for us, and we’re winning despite him.”

    “He has absolutely no people skills,” another team source said regarding Childress.

    Per Jensen, Childress’ post-game rip of quarterback Brett Favre following a narrow loss to the Packers pi s sed off more players than Favre. “For a lot of guys, that was a turning point,” an unnamed player told Jensen.

    be sane and serious rocksalt is just stating the truth. im not trying argue with you man. but its just the truth. yeah childress has a decent record. cool. but if you dont have the respect from your players, then it doesnt matter how many wins you have. childress just does not give respect, so why should they? that was even quoted from one of the players. like i said man im not tryig to argue with you. but i honestly think thats what the problem is this year with the lack of motivation and poor performance. and it took brett favre once again to light a fire under there @ss to get things going. he even got the defense going. the players responded to favre. favre knows what he’s doing and he has the respect from all the players. interception or td it doesnt matter. because they respect him. thats what it all comes down too man. childress needs to go and i guarntee you things will go back to what they were

    Here is how life works– there are problems, trials, and tribulations– many call them facts. Many want to focus on them. Here is how you overcome– you focus on the solutions. Whining and complaining only exacerbates the problem. It is similar to the driving instructors who tell their students to focus on the road and not the ditch, because where your focus is, that is where your destination lies.
    No one is sticking their head in the sand, nor denying the problems. We know there are problems, keep reiterating what is wrong, and you get more of the same.
    IS THERE ANYONE SANE ON THESE BOARDS that know of what I speak? I know off these boards, the most successful people in every career arena know exactly what I am talkin’ about!

    BSS-
    Correct me if I am wrong , but you suggest that real solutions only come from those who are in agreement with you.those who are not, you refer to as Naysayers and Whiners……
    What I think I disagree the most with you about, is your mantra of “keeping everything positve and non-critical…….you even go so far as to suggest that only thinking and expressing positive feedback, statements, will somehow have a significant impact on the teams performance, that we as bloggers, should not ever dare to criticize things, even though there appears to be good cause to do so.
    Unless I am mistaken, it seems that your whole attitude suggests that your way of expressing yourself is the only right and true way……..and I find that insulting.
    These blog sites do not need you to assume the role of hall monitor……Fans should have the right to express themselves as they see fit…..true, some forms may go too far, or be insulting, but the majority can weigh in as to whether such things go beyond the implicit community standards of the bloggers.
    You also , refer to the many outraged bloggers expressions as “mob rule”……sometimes, if everyon sees this in one way, and only a few see it differently, then the majority wins out, or at least forms some type of consensus…….we do live by standards within the community that are by consensus……
    Perhaps you are way beyond all of us who see the issues with this coach ….but perhaps this coach does not possess the necessary leadership skills, triats that we all know and can recognize, especially whaen such things appear to be absent.

    Rocksalt, I never said to not use critical judgment, quite contrary, in fact one has to use analysis to diagnose a problem for proper solutions to be executed. As for being hall monitor, you cannot tell me what I can or cannot blog, lest you fill that position yourself– is that not true? You simplify what I say and do not understand. Partly, I am to blame for that, obviously, but maybe you have been around positive smiling thinkers who avoid problems– not at all where I am coming from. I am practical and a realist. We want to win– we have had a lot of problems this year– one is the coaching– and having millions of fans screaming for his head does not solve the problem– so stop already.
