Brett Favre's return for another season is "highly unlikely, but it has been an awesome year," the Minnesota Vikings quarterback told ESPN's Ed Werder after the Vikings' loss to the New Orleans Saints in the NFC Championship Game on Sunday.

Favre, who returned to the NFL from retirement with the goal of leading the Vikings to a championship, fell just short when his pass with seconds left in regulation was intercepted. The Saints won in overtime to advance to the franchise's first-ever Super Bowl.

The physical punishment Brett Favre absorbed during Sunday's NFC Championship left the veteran QB hurting late in the game.

Favre also told Werder before the game that not one Vikings player had inquired about his future because they were so focused on the game.


So in other words...lather, rinse, repeat.

A Favre-Manning matchup would've been legendary. But the Saints are a great story. Imagine if the game had been scheduled for New Orleans.

Maybe 10 years ago.

Right now the match-up is perfect: Two #1 seeds, two of the last undefeated teams, and the leagues two best QB's.

Farve would never have won a Superbowl without Reggie White.

One of the greatest calls I've ever heard. As much as I wanted Minnesota to lose because of Favre, I feel bad for long-time Vikings fans... what a BRUTAL loss.

And to the Colts- Fins Nation says thanks. That second half destruction was enjoyed greatly by me.

I agree- they are a likable bunch aside from Mr. Pants on the Ground... But the Saints are a great story, and I'm happy for that city and those fans. They deserve it. Quick observation: why the hell does Brad Childress insist on wearing a headset that makes him look like he should be manning the drive-thru window at Arby's? He looks like a fvcking tool.

That wasn't on Fox... it was the Vikings radio announcer's call played over the TV broadcast.

He's obnoxious, unprofessional, and a cry baby. I thought "moron" was being nice.



A lot of the local NFL radio play-by-play guys are like that. I think it's awesome.
