Is Brett Favre’s career dead?

Brett Favre left yesterday’s Minnesota Vikings-Chicago Bears game with a head concussion. During the second quarter, Bears tight end Corey Woottman sacked Favre, causing Favre to watch the rest of the game from the sideline as the Bears beat the Vikings 40-13. Favre missed his first start in 18 years last week with a sprained SC joint in his right shoulder. All signs point that Favre’s career is over, even telling the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, “I don’t know with this concussion, based on my decision-making, I probably shouldn’t tell you one way or the other right now. I don’t regret it. I wish it would have turned out differently.”

NFL decision on Brett Favre sexual harrassment to come by season’s end

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell says he will make his decision on the Brett Fave sexual harassment case by the season’s end. Jenn Sterger, the former NY Jets sideline reporter who Favre is accused of sending naked pictures to, said she wants to see Favre suspended or she will pursue litigation.

During an interview with NBC’s Football Night in America, Goodell said he expected a decision by the season’s end. “I want to make sure we do what’s right,” Goodell said. “We take this issue very seriously.”

All signs point to that this is Favre’s last season. During last week’s Minnesota Vikings-NY Giants game, Favre missed his first game since 1992. Is stalling the decision Goodell’s way of avoiding suspending Favre and tarnishing the end of his career ?

Vikings asking fans to help shovel out University of Minnesota stadium for Monday’s game

The roof of the Metrodome will not be repaired by Monday’s Minnesota Vikings-Chicago Bears game. On Sunday, snow collapsed the roof of the team’s stadium, and Vikings officials have asked the NFL for the game to be played at University of Minnesota’s TCF Bank. The new location would allow the game to still be played in the Vikings’ home state, the only problem is they are having trouble shoveling all the snow in time for the game.

In some areas, the snow is as much as five feet deep, and now Vikings fans are being asked to help shovel. The University of Minnesota is looking for volunteers from Thursday-Sunday to shovel out snow from the bleachers, concourse and football field.

While you will not be paid for your manual labor, don’t worry the university will supply you shovels.

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!
