    Dirty Block by Favre

    That was a B.S. block by Favre... it's the PRESEASON... Chill out Brett. And he supposedly has a "cracked rib"? He's such a *****.. I understand he helps up out and "makes us a better team." But he's such a drama queen and always wants the attention on him and now he's throwing dirty blocks in the preseason... I really dislike this guy...

    Re: Dirty Block by Favre

    I don't think he meant it as malicious or dirty. He was playing hard and just had a big error in judgement.

    There are some large pieces of **** in the NFL but Favre and Jay Cutler are by far the two largest.

    You're just mad because you let a good franchise QB get away and he came back and did you in your own house.





    But though I also agree the way he went about it was very unclassy.

    Re: Dirty Block by Favre

    If I was his teammate and didn't love him before, I'd love him now. That block may have been illegal, but it took guts.

    Yes that does make it a little harder to handle, Kyle Orton is the quarterback now after all.

    You wouldn't have to hit that guy that low or hard to accomplish the same thing.

    Re: Dirty Block by Favre

    I just think it was a bad 'tackle.' Not like he practices that type of thing. Illegal? Yes. Dumb? Yes. Malicious? No.

    He's a QB...I'm assuming he does not practice blocks or tackling at practice.

    Re: Dirty Block by Favre

    I think it was more a case of a guy having no clue what he's doing spread out like that. Moral of the story, don't put quarterbacks split out wide if they are completely clueless as to what they're doing in that position.

    Re: Dirty Block by Favre

    Hell even Childress stated the same thing and said it was his fault for having Favre out there in a pre season game to begin with. I find the amount of hate for Farve disturbing. I know its the American way to build up heros only to tear them down again once they succeed but the grass roots hate movement is just strage to me. Yes the block was illegal, but I don't think it was intentionally malicious. QBs have been diving at ankles on backside blocks for decades, the only reason it was illegal is the fact he was coming from outside the hash marks. (definition of a "crackback") Favre has never struck me as a dirty player and I doubt he would wait until this point in his career to get malicious.

    Personally, and it is personal, the main reason I am upset at Favre is because Rosenfels got the shaft big time in this situation. He finally escapes the Texans, and most likely will start, and then the circus begins.

    So, why would you be upset at Favre then? He wasn't the one who made the trade.

    I agree. Stupid? Yes. Dirty? C'mon, the guy doesn't know how to block. Besides, it looked to me like he hit him at the waist or hips (by how the guy folded over him) rather than at the knees. Just another excuse for the haters.

    Re: Dirty Block by Favre

    At least Farve was smart and threw the left side of his body at the defender as to avoid hurting his throwing arm. Bad block, but definately not malicious.
