Brett Favre is back in the game, but it remains to be seen whether he’ll be the same. On second and 8 and the 10th play of the Vikings drive, Fox Broadcaster Joe Buck said, “Favre’s still smiling.” Just like that, the Vikings
star quarterback American Hero Brett Favre dropped back and Buck finished his sentence... "He's picked off!" Justice: Served.
And to make matters worse, Favre was hurt on the play when he suffered a hi-low hit from two Saints defenders that left him writhing around on the ground. Just like a kid out there. Now, he’s back in the game, but still limping around. By the looks of it, he’s not 100%.
As Fox broadcaster Joe Buck wondered upon Favre’s return, “Can the Legend grow any more?” He didn’t mean it this way, but it works nonetheless: the Favre fawning was the stuff of legend years ago… Can it be taken to new heights with a comeback, fourth quarter, PLAYIN’ HURT victory in the NFC Championship game? Please, please please please, no.
