Favre on win over Packers: “It never gets old to me, even though I do.”

7 10 2009

It was better than I could have hoped for. Vintage Favre — effortless 30+ yard passes, pump-fakes, fadeaways, endless time in the pocket (great pass protection, Vikings!) before finding his receivers. Running around the field with little-boy glee after each Minnesota score. Three touchdowns, 271 passing yards, no interceptions, no sacks. (Poor Aaron Rodgers was sacked eight times, ouch.) Not bad for a guy who turns 40 this coming Saturday.

Favre is now the only quarterback to defeat all 32 NFL teams. He was named Offensive Player of the week. And oh yeah, the GB/Min game on ESPN’s Monday Night Football was the highest-rated show in the history of cable TV.

The Vikings triumphed 30-23, and are now 4-0, and facing the hapless Rams (0-4) next week. Favre has never started at season at 5-0 — perhaps next week he’ll set another record.
