    Favre and Interceptions

    Do you realize Favre's last pass the past 3 seasons has been intercepted? Not sure if that has ever happened before and surely will not happen again for some time.

    Re: Favre and Interceptions

    You can say the same thing about his last 3 NFC Championship games.

    Re: Favre and Interceptions

    I think technically, his last pass in 2008 wasn't an INT but the throw before it was. He has choked a lot in the postseason. Especially in the NFC Championship game. Not only choked, but the INT he threw were ridiculous.

    Re: Favre and Interceptions

    The Giants interception was a killer. I was so ****** off then. The one last night wasn't as big. Due to the conservative play calling and then the 12 men on the field penalty, Favre had to make a play. The chances of Longwell making a 55+ FG wasn't good and Favre knew they needed 10 more yards. Last night was hardly a Favre choke

    I wouldn't have said he choked, but I think he made a horrible decision. He could have legged out a few yards and given Longwell a shot.

    Wasn't a good chance of making it, but better than if he hadn't thrown the interception

    If he would have taken off running he could have got at least 10 yards. I think all the hits he took got in his head.

    Haha. Favre couldn't have gotten 5 yards on that run. He is Brett Favre not Vince Young!

    Don't get me wrong he shouldn't have thrown that ball, but that didn't cost them the game. They were going to OT even if he threw it away. Fumbles and conservative play calling cost them the game

    Good analysis, there looked to be two defenders in position to quickly close the gap and stop him for basically no gain if he made a move to run with the ball.

    Re: Favre and Interceptions

    Regardless of how difficult a 55 yard field goal kick would be, you'd still at least like to have a shot. That interception was just deflating for the Vikings and really got the crowd pumped up.

    Favre didn't lose the game, but he cost them what would be their only chance to win in the end (Thx OT rules.)

    I just don't think Longwell was going to make a 56 yarder.
