Brett Favre was his typical self on Monday night. He made plays to get his team back in the game, and then he made plays to take his team out of it. The man could have found Tahi for the two-point conversion but missed him, missed a wide open Percy Harvin in the final drive, and then he threw a pick six to seal the deal. Favre did what only he can — get your hopes up only to let you down, screwing over Doc Brown in the process, who had an otherwise nearly flawless week.
The true heartbreak kid was also the star of the show after the game. Standing at the podium answering questions from the media, Favre was regularly asked about the NFL’s investigation into the sexual harassment and penis photos. He declined to get into the issue, persistently trying to turn the topic back to football. Favre seemed uncomfortable every time someone pressed him on it and he truly seemed to be acting guilty. Thing is, Favre loves the spotlight and to be the center of attention so much he remained at the podium to continue talking and taking questions and he didn’t shut up until the P.R. director ended the conference.
Aside from dodging the Jenn Sterger questions, Favre also said his arm hurt more after this game than it had all year. He was seen grabbing his elbow towards the end of the game in obvious pain. Some might look at this as one of Favre’s annual excuses, but the injury seemed legit. Lastly, Brett confirmed he had been dreaming about
Jenn Sterger throwing touchdown passes to Randy Moss for the past 8-10 years and that’s why he was so excited after the touchdown. He may have connected on that bomb, but in the end he did what he always does — break your heart.
