Well,I am a Cowboy fan too,I've liked them since Aikman & co. were "1 -15"   2 years before they won the Super Bowl. But lets face it,Minnesota were just a better team last year and Romo kept making poor throws out there.If your up against a better team you know that you can't make ANY mistakes at all,if you do you lose and thats what happened to Dallas last year.I'm not sure what to think about them right now,but I guess we'll see after 8 games half way through the season.

I didn't realize how much Sidney Rice means to Favre,man without that one guy Favre seems lost.The problem is that they still had Harvin out there and he and Favre were out of rhythm,thats odd.   0 -1 isn't time to panic but if they lose to Miami the week after sunday then its time to panic. Same with Dallas,if they lose to Washington Sunday no need to panic but they have got to win the next game.Nobnody wants to start at 0-2 because that 3rd game will either start to dig you out of a hole or seal your season.

I'm not being too harsh. I'll admit he's worthy of coming back one more time,
I just hate him. I like the Cowboys so I didn't like him in Green Bay either. No disrespect
to the man, I just hate him. After last years playoff game and some of the cooments he made
afterward makes me want to see Dallas do to him what the Saints did to him last year.

Of course I am going to agree with you J.D. I love Brett Favre. So much so, I take crap from everyone at work (see I live in Wisconsin). I don't blame the loss entirely on him but him not showing up to camp really showed yesterday. Last year, it wasn't an issue but this year it affected the team. The guys just seemed out of sinc. I do understand he has the ankle issue but....   Hopefully they will come together soon and things will work out. I will be cheering for them.  

Budred: I also have Brett's rookie card. I would hang on to that if i were you.

LOL! Oh,I think your being to harsh on Favre Budred,I "was" even sick and tired of the media's "drama" with the "offseason" Favre bullshit,but it wasn't Favre's fault at all. Look who the vikings have for back up QB: "Tavaris Jackson". You think "Tavaris Jackson" could of beat the Saints last night? HAHAHA! Fuck of course not! 

The smartest thing the Vikings have done is getting Brett Favre for one last season.Favre said before the season started that they may not beat the Saints in the season opener and if they don't they all go down swinging together,yet when they lose the media blames Favre and it looks like he is swinging all by himself . He even said that there are no guarantees that the Vikings will make it to the NFC Championship game,every season is different but since they were so close last season it would of been stupid of Favre to retire this year,at least he is giving it one more shot. Like him or hate him,Favre is good,he is overrated yes and he is not the best QB no,but this guy is very good and much much better than Tavaris Jackson.

i would hang onto that card budred you never know
[Budred] Friday, September 10, 2010 8:18:56 AM 
O.K., I don't want Brett Favre to get his neck snapped but I really do hope they get some shots at
him. Honestly, I don't see him holding up very long. He's still struggling from last year, he'll
never catch up this year. I have a rookie Favre card, anyone want to buy it?(LOL) Best offer gets it.
Advice to Brett!!! Give up now. Blame the ankle, you can still go out with dignity that way. People will buy it.(LOL)

I think Dallas and Minnesota play this year. I hope Favre lasts that long at least. 
After his little celebration last year I would love to watch the Cowboys snap his neck,
(or at least his ankle). I saw the pictures of him after the Saints game last year.
I couldn't help but smile and wish evil things on him. I hope Dallas leaves bruises like
that on his whole body.

[Jeanine] Thursday, September 09, 2010 10:17:33 PM 
Though I love Brett, it was quite apparent tonight that he should have tried to attend at least pre-season games let alone training camp. I love him, I hope they have a great season. Tonight was close but mistake were quite obvious on both sides.

NFL begins today: Vikings at Saints,even with the return of Favre I think the Saints are too good to lose at home,so I'm betting on the Saints to win this game.Vikings will have to go 0-1 and then build all season long to try and end up with a better record than New Orleans for hopes of home field advantage.But going 0-1 isn't going to be easy,they would have to win the next 15 games to try and beat out the Saints for home field advantage. I'm not sure if the Vikings can make it to the NFC Championship game from 0-1 but we'll see.

Being from Minnesota... Vikes can't afford to go on with Jackson, no one here can stand him. (And Childress as coach is a big No-No also...)  All of us here are still waiting for the typical Favre to actually come out and say he's done, and not his agent... Other than the Vikes, they weren't the Top NFC team this year, apparenlty it's the Cowboys (!?!?!?!?!) which I cannot see happening.. And other sources say the Pack will win the NFC, we'll just have to see...  Drew Brees "Madden Curse" to happen this year? Who knows... Remember, Favre wants vengeance on Brees . . . But will it even happen? (MN @ NO - 1st Reg. Season game)   [Show/Hide Quoted Message] (Quoting Message by J.D. DIAMOND from Tuesday, August 03, 2010 2:10:21 PM)

Have you taken a good look at the Bears roster for this year??  And they have an all-star cast of former NFL head coaches to prepare them.  I'm not saying they're gonna win it all, but don't count them out either... ; )

Good riddance Favre, one of the best!!

Finally,as of today August 3rd Brett Favre has just retired from the NFL and will not return for a 20th season. Finally the stupid drama queen bullshit is over and we no longer have to hear about "the Favre watch". Fucking irritating. Put a fork in the Minnesota Vikings because they are done,they will not even make it to the playoffs this year with Tavaris Jackson at QB. Thats weak. The Saints are going to toally destroy the NFC without the Vikings in thier path now.

LaDanian Tomlinson went to the JETS!!!!! Being a Jets fan i am stoked. I really believe that his decline came from being a little unhappy with his place and I really see a solid 1000+ yard season from LT.

Often hitting guys in NFL is like shooting fish in a barrel, The defensive player is charging forward to make the hit while the attacking player is practically standing still or moving sideways. In rugby league you have the offensive and defensive lines moving towards each other at pace making for some mighty collisions and lots of injuries, it's AWESOME!!!

Ok guys, bringing the football talk to the NFL

I think one of the differences as far as contact goes between Rugby and the NFL is that each offensive play in the NFL starts from a set position...that means the defense has more time to 'measure' an offensive ball handler up before contact is made...sometimes it's intantanious (contact), but more often than not the defender has the chance at a running start.  'Timing' is an important skill when throwing the ball and the receiver is focused on catching the ball and has little to no time to get into a position to protect themselves against a hit, so the hits are truly more dramatic and painful (even with protective gear).  And there's a psycological impact to that as well that can disrupt a game plan.  Ever hear a player being accused of having 'alligator arms'?
