What does Favre think?

Unlike his Coach Brad Childress, Minnesota Vikings quarterback Brett Favre said he doesn't have a problem with how physical the Saints were in last year's NFC Championship Game at the Superdome.

Childress, whose team meets the Saints in the season opener Thursday night in the Superdome, said the Saints played dirty at times in the game.

"I've heard that from a lot of people and you know what my response is? It's football," Favre said. "Sean Payton and I are good friends. I talked to him several days after that game. I said hey, that's a great win for you guys.

"In a roundabout way, every defense wants to get the opposing quarterback out. That's just the way it is."

Oops, too late - Breesus has NFL Poster Boy protection status. They're already retrofitting the Bradycage and shipping it to Metairie as we speak B)

Brees gets rid of the ball too quick. He doesn't need the cage...

But it does make me wonder if they were to give the opposing team an extra second or two to hit him if Saints fans would still say that's just good defense.

IT'S PRO FOOTBALL MAN!

They hit people, tackle people and bruise people.

Accept it or turn the channel to figure skating.

:wacko:

So if Jared Allen aims for Brees' knees, you won't be upset? If they aim high and low after the ball is gone, you will not be upset? I am impressed. After the way Pittsburgh took out Palmer, I would figure most fans would have a problem with another team trying to injure (not hurt and there is a difference) their quarterback.

That's the difference, isn't it? I don't think the Saints were trying to injure Favre, just be physical with him and speed up his play to the point of him being less effective.

I was under the impression that this was basic NFL until Chilly and the Vikes conveniently forgot it after their bitter loss.

I've rewatched the game several times and don't remember all these 'extra seconds'. What I do remember is the Saints going max protect as opposed to the Vikes who exposed Favre.

I'm positive most of us have admitted to the shot at the knees was on the dirty side. But most of the other hits came after the defender had already began to come at Favre. These are large men, and it's impossible for them to stop their bodies full of momentum on a dime.

Lets be honest, Gregg Williams used the national spotlight to show that it's okay to time your hits on a qb to try to end his season. Like Favre said, it's what every defense tries to do. I just don't think many defenses tried to time the hits for maximum effect. Most just run in full force and get the qb, no questions asked.

I can definitely see a lot more timing on qb hits this season. I don't know if this is a good thing or bad thing though.

It's football yes, but why flame the fire? GW has, Sharper has.... The Taints are world champions, are they that scared of Farve enough to make all those STUPID comments?

Saint got torched in the NFCC game, I guess they have to play into something to get them motivated. It just might bite them in the *** though....

I mainly feel bad for Brees. If some bad luck falls his way and he does happen to get injured in a game, the headlines will be "Karma?".

I feel there's been a reason why many DCs don't claim either directly or indirectly that they're going to try to end someones season/career. You have guys on your own team that could get hurt. You don't want to , as you said, fuel the fire, don't try to give the other team a reason to make it personal.

I think GW wants sacks more than hits as would any DC. His stated goal is to be physical when failing to get the sack. There's no timing to just get hits.

I agree with Dirtybird, every DC feels this way, but are perhaps more circumspect in who hears them admit to it.

I feel bad for Matt Moore and Matt Ryan, what with so many Panthers and Falcons fans seemingly praying for an injury to Brees. Isn't that how karma works? :rolleyes:

I'm beginning to think some rival fans are going to feel genuinely cheated when Brees completes this season without injury <_<

Obviously you've not read most of my thoughts on Brees. I like the guy, I don't want him seriously injured. You have to wonder though if all this trash talking from Gregg Williams won't light a fire under some of the other teams though.

Like his talking about Steve Smith last season, before the first game, had Steve Smith actually been injured, they would've brought the pain the first game this season in an attempt to take out someone as important to the Saints as Smith is to the Panthers.

In a game where it's already "any given Sunday", why give the other team extra motivation? I don't hear Payton Bragging almost every other week about his offense and how he's going to do this and how his guys are going to do that. He doesn't need to. His offense speaks for itself. You'd think that kind of confidence would flow down the ranks to Gregg Williams and his defense as well.

We agree on this point.

I'm not big on the coaches talking big......that's my job. ;)
