It was a d*ck move, and told me a lot about Brad Childress, and even more about Favre.
What a couple of f*cksticks.
Sorry LB but this is one of the most ill formed opinions I have read lately. You play 100% from whistle to whistle. There is no room for perceived honor in a game where the whole point is to score points. I don't see you going off on the defense and it's coaches for continueing to prevent the Girls from scoring.
When your goal is to win it all, how exactly do you go to your guys and tell them "Let up and don't play 100%" even for a play, much less the last 1/4 of a game? Is Favre and the offense playing "perfect"? I am sure they would not think so and therefor you continue to improve. You don't improve by taking plays off to save the oppositions feelings.
I hate Favre with a passion, and he is the only player I have ever wished injury on, but Favre and the Vikings did nothing wrong. I mean were Steve Young and George Seifert classless for running up the score on SD in our last SB? Bet you didn't think so at the time huh? Yet what they did was MUCH worse then what Favre and Childress did to the girls, well kinda.....errrr no I guess thats a bad example, Seifert pulled Young early........but still.......
Plus it's the cowgirls, how can you feel sympathy at all lol?
Brooking is an effin sisssy and should be ashamed to look his son in the face....
Bro...the game was completely out of reach. It was 4th down. They were inside the 20. They could have kicked a FG, but to pad Favre's stats, they went for a TD. With the FG instead of the TD, it still would have been 30-3...a historically insurmountable lead with that much time left.
The Super Bowl against the Chargers is a pretty bad example, amigo. The 49ers scored their last TD early in the 4th quarter after Natrone Means was stopped for a loss on 4th and 1 inside his own 35. Also, I should mention that the Niners didn't go for the TD on 4th down, having already won the game.
After that, the Niners began to coast, pulling their starters, and putting in Deion Sanders at WR (remember?). Their coasting ended up yielding a score, making the final 49-26.
The 49ers used to be one of the best teams in the league at running the "4 minute offense"...which was pulled out when a game was three scores out of reach to run time off the clock.
Favre is a douchebag (for skipping training camp, going to his first team's division arch-rivals, and in general being more indecisive than a 16 year old girl) and Childress is a douchebag...because he made an unprofessional call.
It's kind of ironic, too...considering that Brett whined like a little b*tch in 1996 when the Cowboys let their kicker attempt to tie an NFL record (with his 7th field goal in a game) with the game put away. It was petty, nothing more. F*ck Brett. I almost want him to make it to the SB so I can watch him lose it again.
This is not a defense of the Cowboys, or of Brooking...it is a very carefully thought out opinion. That is all.
