I was convinced the kicker couldn't make it. Too far, too much pressure. Turns out he could have hit it from another ten yards.

Matt Tracker,

I thought the same thing. I figured he would shank it badly and the Vikings would go down and score. Lost in all the talk of the game is how clutch that kick was. Right down the middle and good by a lot.



Life is hilariously cruel.

I don't know if that was necessarily that commercial's debut, but if it was, I think it was Favre tempting karma one time too many. He deserved the ending he wound up getting tonight.

I mentioned on Twitter last night that I hope his final Sears commercial ends with him accidentally buying a TV for someone else.

If I have to hear: "this kicker was making them from 60 yards in the pre-game warm-ups" again...I will be upset. Sure, I've seen kickers boot it from 60-70 in pre-game warm-ups... and about 10 yards away the QB was throwing about 32 touchdown passes and each of his receivers caught about 8 or 9 of those!

I also liked the brief shot of a somewhat panicked Tavaris Jackson as Favre was stumbling off the field in the middle of the 4th.

    True. At least Rodgers had the good sense for HIS season-ending turnover at the end of a ridiculously tense game be both IN overtime AND returned for a touchdown. Well done.


Not the turnover I was referring to, rather the other pain in the ass that comes around this time of year, Favre's "retirement-nonretirement-stay retired-alright I'll play again" crap that Packer fans like me got sick of 4-5 years ago.

That's a horrible analogy.

Commenting on how far a kicker is kicking the ball and commenting on how accurate a quarterback is when there is no defense are nothing at all alike. Sure, a kicker making a 65 yarder in warmups doesn't mean he'll make one in the game, but it does mean conditions that day are allowing him to get some distance on the ball. You do know that not every kicker can make them from that distance even in warmups, yeah?

Sounds like he's a very excitable person ...

In good times ... (Vikings vs. 49ers, 2009)

Take a knee, you can try a 56-yard field goal? I think you've at least got to try and move it closer with a timeout in your pocket.

= = = = = = = = = = = = = =

I do think he could have got the five yards back on a scramble for the 50, 51-yard try at the gun, but watching the game I can't help but feel the Vikings played better. But no one overcomes -4 turnovers in a playoff game. Favre will be back for another run, he's going to have to go out on a cart in the end.

That was a horrible pass interference call in overtime of a league championship game.

Took me three times hearing it before I figured out why Sean Payton was telling his kicker to "aim for the Florida Lee in the center".

Just saw Brad Childress say they would be fine without Favre. Are the Viks kicking him to the curb?

Indeed. Just his accent threw me off. Like Costner in "Prince of Thieves".

I've watched A. Smith play since he started in Buffalo, I thought he was a decent back, I'd even call him underrated. He's not an elite by any stretch but he's solid and doesn't make too many mistakes
