After starting 297 consecutive games, Brett Favre’s streak as a starting quaterback is over. It has been the longest streak in NFL history. Last week, Favre sprained the SC joint in his right shoulder in a game against the Buffalo Bills. Instead, Vikings backup quarterback Tarvaris Jackson will get the start. Favre had an extra day to rest, after the Minnesota Vikings- NY Giants game was postponed after the Metrodone collapsed due to snow. The game will be played tonight at Detroit’s Ford Field. Although Favre made the trip to Detroit, he is list as inactive for the matchup. The last time Brett Favre did not start an NFL football game was in 1992. The legendary quarterback in the midst of a text message scandal was drafted in 1991. Be careful Jenn… Favre is going to have some extra time on his hands!
Samantha Steele- December 2012
ESPN sideline reporter Samantha Steele is engaged to Minnesota Viking QB Christian Ponder earning her the honor of December 2012 Jersey Chaser of the Month.Steele and Ponder began dating at the begining of the NFL season and both had breakout years. Ponder claimed the starting job for the Vikings, while Steele was crowned ESPN’s new darling with the departure of Erin Andrews. The couple met on the College Game Day set. When asked about the relationship, Ponder said: “The cool thing is that obviously, we’re both at the same time, so we don’t get to see each other that much. But at least one person isn’t feeling guilty about not making the effort to do it or whatever. Then we kind of have the same schedule in the off season, so that’ll be good.” Share It
