Brett Favre Impresses All
Posted August 31, 2009on:
Brett Favre in his first game as the starter of the Vikings, leads them victory. After a rollercoaster offseason, in which Favre delt with having to decide wheather or not to retire or not, played very well and impressed all in his first game. Brett Favre played nearly three quarters as promised by head coach Brad Childress and distributed the ball very nicely. He completed an impressive 13 of his 17 passes. Throwing 1 touchdown 0 interceptions. Minnesota went on to win the game 17 to 10 beating the Houston Texans. Brett Favres’ injured ribs also did not appear to be an issue, as he took several big hits and bounced right back up. Favre seems to think he will be able to deal with the pain in his rib as he expressed in the press confernce after the game when Favre stated “There is nothing you can do about it first of all, secondly, I don’t believe it is [cracked],” he said. “It doesn’t feel great but I think I will be fine. We have not done an X-ray yet. If it is cracked, there is nothing you can do about it.” Although Favre is getting up there in age and will be turning 40 in a couple of months, he is one of the best quarterbacks of all time and if he stays healthy many believe he can really help out this Viking team who is in need of someone to step up at the quarterback position.
