I think you mean how good he was.

He was an incredible QB but he's just hanging on now and despite what others would lead you to believe he doesn't give you the best chance to win.

He's washed up. Plain and simple.

He probably is better than what the Vikes have got. But, facts are facts, he's just hanging on. It's time for him to retire and give the team a chance to rebuild.

I disagree and I'm typically a Viking fan. Brett Favre still has plenty in the tank and is always a real treat to watch. Get a little more of that young talent to improve around him and watch out.

Sweeping the vikes last year lol, yeah that was a real feat. About the most rotten vikings team you'll ever see. I'd be real proud too flaunt that. Favre better next year than what we've got???? Well you dont say. About 29 NFL teams have a better QB situation than the vikings do. Its not a secret. Without drastic changes the vikes will have about a 5 win season next year and probably get swept again by the pack, again no secret. Then again the vikes with a rookie QB who was terrible still almost beat Favre at Lambeau so i guess its not a gimme. I said what i had too say about Favre in the other post so all i'll say here is this: In the last 10 years its been more likely that hes been a detriment too a packer playoff run than a hero. Its been more likely that he was the reason for a playoff loss than a playoff win. And with some awfully good teams at that. You wont here packer fans talk about any of this though, its all been swept under the rug.

Bret Favre:

2003 32 td, 21 int, 2 lost fumbles

2004 30 td, 17 int, 1 lost fumble

2005 20 td, 29 int, 7 lost fumbles

2006 18 td, 18 int, 5 lost fumbles

2003-2006 100td, 85 int, 15 lost fumbles

100 tds and 100 turnovers

I think the tank is on "E"

He's holding the Packers back.

He is, however, one of the all time greats. I have to admit I've enjoyed watching him play as much or more than any Viking in the last 15 years. Saying that about a Packer makes me want to puke. tongue.gif

I heard on TV today he is wanint to get Moss there. I think he could still perform with the right talent around him. Don't think Moss is the guy anymore, but who knows. Maybe he'll be a packer and add insult to us Vike fans. I don't know why they have to make such a big deal about it every year though. Just another year of listening to Madden gargle on Farve's )(*&).

Seriously. It was a real feat that the Vikes were in the game in the first place. They got 3 first downs the whole game. The score was not a good indicator of that game at all. I realize the Pack won with a last minute field goal, but they should have won by 10 points minimum.

You'd think that the Vikes fans would be happy that their D is very respectable now. There is only one big winner every year, and lots of the teams that fall short have tons of talent. Just to get to the championship (in anything) you need the right blend of talent, coaching, momentum, and some luck. To say the Pack had the right blend of talent, but Favre blew it is absolutely laughable. Their D after Reggie left was very, very average. All-Stars can steal games once in awhile, but solid teams top to bottom will always have the upper hand. And average teams end up just that, Average. But that is still better than being a loser.

Nolte is right on!! As much as I dislike the packers, they owned us that last game... The Pack gained momentum as the year moved on and stomped the Bears in the last game, what did our beloved Vikes do? Not much unfortunately. We need a QB in Minny and I'm not so sure we won't draft Brady Quinn with that first rd pick... I know it's sexy to talk WR, but I don't see them following in the footsteps of the Lions and messing up again. But thats a conversation for another thread.

That's fine! All you Queen fans can keep up the "washed up" thing! That's all you can say.

Just Jealous over someone who is one of the nicest humans and can STILL play!! You Queeners have been saying this for how many years! That's all you can come up with! One thing we can count on is the Queens will choke once the pumpkins come off the porch!!!! Look at the records in the win loss column for the....hummmm past several years! grin.gif

Look at his numbers!

I don't know what reality you live in but it's obviously not the same as anyone else.

I understand that he is an NFL and Green Bay icon but he's losing it on the field and his stats show it. 100 touchdowns and 100 turnovers in the last four years. If you can't see his ability fading then you need to re-examine your expectations of what a good QB is.

Jealousy has nothing to do with my comments. You are just grasping at straws.

You need to see the doctor and gets some meds so you can realize that Favre is WASHED UP.

Get a grip on your man love for Bret it's over.

The stats don't lie! Facts are facts!

I'm done.

Have a nice day. laugh.gif

C'Mon!!!

Obiviously, you don't watch Packers games. A lot of his interceptions are tipped balls! You can't look at those numbers as solid concrete as being "Washed Up"! If you went by the numbers of every game in the NFL (STATS) You'd be deceived. Numbers can lie! They don't tell the whole story.

Koonie!

Where are you living?

I'm not saying he's a perfect QB, but look at his other stats over the years. Gees! I sick and tired of all the Queens fans naggin and carry-on about a QB they'd wish they had!!! tongue.gif

Well we get a littly sick of all the Pack fans carrying on about his walking on water. He is great. Most Queens fans will give you that but we will point out his faults.

So you are saying his INTs are because of tipped balls. Is he the only NFL QB to have balls tipped? No he is not. So I guess that makes the stats comparable. If he has an extraordinary amount of tipped balls, then the question is why. It is either his receiving corp has stunk over the years or it is Farve's fault for forcing things into places they should not go. His receivers have been Freeman, Sharpe, Lofton, Driver, Brooks, Walker, etc.. I don't think it was because of an overall lack of talent in his receivers

You guys are all right, He's done, finished, stick a fork in him. I mean 12 other guys threw more TD than he did in the NFL last year. He's so bad that the Packer coaching staff had him throw more than any other QB in the league. Boy they must be dumb.

Stats are the most over-glorified, useless information in all of sports. You can bend them most any way you want to "prove" who is better than the next. It's still a team game, and as a team the Pack has had one losing season with Favre at center in 15 season. I'd be ecstatic if the next QB could bring even close to that success.

Being a vikes fan and livin in cheese country I get to hear the majority of the pack fans. And let me tell ya, they dont want favre anymore. (Most) everyone I talk football with over here think favres been washed up for the last couple years. Personally, I think he can still play. And yes, I am jealous that the pack has had this guy. Sure wish the vikes did. Its been a loooooooooong time since weve had a stable qb. Looks like we might be waiting a lot more. Our future for the vikes does not look promising. Especially losing Tomlin. Hope we find a good replacement because our defense was the only glimmer of hope. Need some big time wide outs. Maybe even get rid of some of the dead weight on the O line. Ill quit griping, cant wait til next sept.

are you looking at your posts before you enter them because they make no sense. Good Lord man.

My comprehension is fine, it's your remedial third grade writing and reasoning that I just can't understand. I'm sorry I can't drop down to that level.

This was about bret favre and now you're coming after me because I think he's washed up. Excuse me for having an opinion.

You really shouldn't come after others with a superior attitude under the guise of a superior intellect.

Your comments are ridiculous. If you are going to come after me with this dump because you are thick skinned go ahead. You can't stop me you can only hope to contain me.

you say thick skinned- I say dim witted!

Now I'll leave you and this Favre thing alone before I get into trouble with the moderator.

    • And when it happens it will probably have one if it's main ingredients just happen to be alcohol based. Strange how that works.    
    • LOL     Why is this ancient thread being revived?  I'm waiting for the product placement in this saga.
    • I say don't keep any gas in anything that is going to sit. Any problems with fuel are water problems not the alcohol. You take out the alcohol in Minnesota in winter you get frozen fuel lines. This was common in winter for decades until ethanol was added but they used isopropyl rather than ethyl alcohol. In fact many of the " remedies" are just other forms of alcohol. If you get so much water in the fuel that the alcohol gets saturated and phases out then you have a contamination issue and the problems won't be solved by  removing the alcohol. You will just have more unbound water sitting at the bottom of your tank building sludge.   Lots of the problems with small engines are derived from the chemicals that come up with the crude in the well. Companies blend this into the fuel rather than pay to dispose of it and that is what gunk's up the fuel system. Gumout was invented long before ethanol and carb cleaner was a regular maintenance procedure needed because of those chemicals mucking up the fuel system. Alcohol is a very good solvent and it does a good job of cleaning up deposits left from those chemicals but as a consequence of that cleaning action you will get clogged Jets and such periodically. But in that case alcohol is the good guy that is cleaning up the dump left behind by the fuel. 
    • I tell people all the time do not use ethanol at all in equipment your store for extended times. I often hear but, but I use it in my car all the time. I respond do you drive your car often? Yes they say. I tell them then your fuel did not have time to become water saturated. There is good reason wise car collectors store their prized classics with non-ethanol fuel only.
    • Bacterial growth in carb bowl filled with water & ethanol. The ethanol component of the fuel becomes saturated with water and settles to bottom of fuel tank. Over time it goes down fuel line by gravity into carb bowl as fuel evaporates out. The water saturated ethanol separates from gasoline as it is heavier.
    • Here is some of the jelly from water being absorbed by ethanol and then bacteria acting on it. Luckily I caught this early before it caused more corrosion. Will post pic of rag with "jelly" (bacterial slime) I pulled out of this carb bowl. Stihl also has some wonderful pics & warnings of damage done by ethanol you can google.
    • Oxidizers were federally mandated in 1997. Politicians took big contributions from the ethanol industry which is set up to benefit ethanol manufacturers and big operations. It has in fact hastened the demise of small and medium farms and the rural communities that depended on them. The farm belt has suffered greatly as a result of regulations passed that benefit the big operations. Small & medium farmers cannot compete with growing ag corporations who can buy seed with big discounts, often exploit illegal workers and can ship product cheaper. Corn had it's short 10 year or so boon after 1997. But that went bust as more marginal land was tilled under & overproduction was achieved to the benefit of ethanol producers. Many farms are still going bust or selling out to the big corporations. 75% of the land in production is owned by big corporate farms. 30 years ago you could flip that number around. So what has this gov't subsidy done for most farmers? Put them out of business!
    • Sorry if I came across as a bit abrasive.  Some of us can get a little surly around here and sometimes we forget we aren't talking to one of the other surly long-timers.   I get what you're saying about a more hunting specific truck with some specific bells and whistles designed with hunters in mind.  I do think the best way to get a truck like that would be to find the base model truck you like for all of the normal stuff trucks come with and then look for some sort of after market option.  There has to be a pro or 2 out there that can take on such a project if you aren't up for tackling it yourself.  I'd be a bit nervous cutting into a new truck as well so would look to hire it out as well.   A couple things that I'd like.  A winch in the bed like you mentioned.  Could be used for loading deer, portable ice houses, or other large loads when you don't have another guy to help. Some sort of instant heat or maybe an app that could start your car from the stand. Maybe some sort of gun safe type lock box behind the seats or in the floor so that if you can keep your rifle or shotgun cased and locked up.  It could be useful for times you may want to sneak out for a hunt after work and you want a better way to secure your firearm when at work.
    • Just a seasoning packet. Adjust the recipe as you see fit. A late summer batch with fresh sweet corn off of the cob works pretty well.     
    • I have a nice truck, but.... For 1 week a year there are things that I would like to change/add. Keyless start would go with keyless entry, like the new ranger boat, punch in your number and go. I can not turn off my lights on my gmc sierra. I install 12v electronics professionally but I wouldn't feel as comfortable cutting into wiring harnesses to add switches as I am tearing all wiring from a boat and doing it from scratch. I'm not trying to hide from the animals, I don't want people to know where my hunting spots are and chrome sticks out bad. I go farther and climb higher and sit longer than 95% of fellow hunters which is why I average 6.3 deer/year (legally) but people who know of my success will seek out my parking spot and return thinking that its the only good spot to hunt. Anyways... I was just trying to open up a friendly conversation about a perfect hunting rig to get people out of the political talk that HSO seems to be about. My best stand is walking distance from my house so all I need a truck for is to retrieve my bucks. Was hoping for something besides abrasive comments and criticism that seems to follow most of my posts. I'm sorry I will quietly read and keep my fingers away from the keyboard. I made it into the ALL TIME RECORD BOOK with a 172" typical public land giant when I drove a 2000 Chev Malibu 24k gold edition anyway. Thanks for reading and have a wonderful time.
