    BS. Favre is an attention whore who will do anything to stay in the spotlight.

    Yeah, he's just saying this so he can get attention. Geez, is it that far out of the realm of possibility that a football player might have actually got hit on a play?

    Nice built-in excuse for Favre.

    If he has a cracked rib - a legitimately cracked rib - then he shouldn't be playing in a pre-season game, especially when you have two capable QBs other than him.

    He's just looking for attention again... and giving the MNF booth reason to talk about what an incredibly brave warrior he is for even suiting up tonight.

    Would love for Conner Barwin to do a tap dance on "the great one" and return a "favor" to the viking's qb.

    just sayin'

    If you truly have a CRACKED rib, when you breath, you will not have "discomfort"....................You will be in SEVERE PAIN...........unless you are drugged up or shot up in order to try to play.........and then, the word "STUPID" comes to mind.

    Brett Favre: Brad - I have a cracked rib, but I'm going to start tonight anyway.

    Brad Childress: Okay Brett. Need a ride to the game?

    Nope, I believe that it is possible. But no player (a 19 year vet mind you, whos position on the team is cement) would play in a meaningless game.

    I have cracked multiple ribs playing hockey. They are a *****, if it was a real game then yea, I believe that he would play through it. But a game that does not mean squat, uh uh, I am not buying it.

    Favre is so damned transparent now. He's throwing that out there so that if he plays well he adds to the legend and if he stinks up the place he's got an excuse. It will probably help him draw a roughing the passer penalty too if any Texan gets within 4 feet of "His Majesty".

    I want to see sacks tonight.

    Didn't you know that Favre plays a doctor too. I'm awaiting his retirment from his private practice.

    How is this a meaningless game?? Newsflash, he wasn't even in camp and has barely played in pre season but for a few plays. He needs chemistry with his WR's and his team in the huddle. Hell he wasn't even there for the first pre season game. This is a "Must play" game for him all of the way if this team expects to get any good offense this season. They've invested a lot of money in Favre, and he needs to be out there going through reps with his team. And spare me with the "Well he should have been in camp then" response, because he wasn't and that can't be redone now, so he needs to get all the reps that he can if they want to have a productive offense once the season starts.

    Geez, I swear people will come up with any conspiracy they can with Favre now days. The man plays football for heavens sake. This isn't a typical situation where a QB has been with the team for several years. He just got there like two weeks ago.

    I bet with cracked rib his passes wouldn't make it across the pond. :)

    Hes Brett Favre, hes an attention wh0re and wants to make a good showing for MNF. He might just be bluffing to make it look like a Superman type feat. Who knows?

    I hope Mario get a shot or 4 at those ribs. Then we will get to see Rosencopter. He worries me more than Brett though.
