â†µOh, you're a cute little innocent, that's what you are. â†µ
â†µNo, the gimmicks are as guaranteed as the reminders that the Gunslinger is just having fun out there. What do they have for us in this installment? Fox is going to have a camera set up at the 50-yard-line that will be trained exclusively on Favre the entire game, even if he's sitting on the bench picking through his stubble. At no point will this camera not be attached, remora-like, to Favre. The feed will be available to viewers at FOXSports.com or NFL.com. â†µâ†µ
â†µAs cheap and annoying as this tactic is, it does present a surreal football-watching experience. How much could you glean from one game by watching only one player exclusively, even if he is a supremely consequential one. What if you saw Favre doing well during the offensive possession, but couldn't figure out that the Vikings defense was getting destroyed as he trolled the sidelines. You'd just have to read his facial expressions all game to suss that out. Oh man, Peter King is gonna be all over this. â†µâ†µ
