    Coincidence or bad news for Minnesota?

      there's just something about Brett Favre that makes you think you are looking at greatness. i don't know if it is the way he carries himself or what, but that is what i think when i watch him play.

      ouch we broke his streak yesterday. us, the lowly Cardinals!

        I have a suspicion that you're a network sports announcer when you aren't writing on HubPages.

      Somewhere around week 8 or 9 I think...

        Actually it was week 13, just like this year.

    As long as he didnt tear his bicep tended again i think he will be ok.  The Jets didnt have anywhere near the supporting cast that the Vikes do. 

    The loss of EJ Henderson is what I would be worried about if I was a vikes fan.

    Coincidence, Favre will be fine especially with his supporting cast of players. If everyone stays healthy and the defense plays it's part, Favre's job will be much easier taking the Vikes into the playoffs.

      I agree...And honestly, I think the Bears are a lot better than anyone gives credit. Yes, Cutler has thrown 26 interceptions and he makes bad decisions...but lets remember, his receiving core is young and inexperienced. So, I think the Vikings are just fine.

      Let's also add this in here...I'm not sure the Saints and the Vikings are the top two teams in the NFC. A lot of the power will be playing in the wildcard.

      And, also, there are no powerhouse defenses in either conference. Possibly the Jets, if they make it...there might be some really high scoring games!

    I definitely think it is a coincidence and I think they probably could lose the rest of their games and still make the playoffs. So that's not even a question, but some of that supporting cast got exposed pretty good last night. And in spite of how good he looked against all those cupcakes on the Vikings schedule, Favre still throws dumb passes when he is under pressure. The Vikings are at best the third team in the NFC.

    Definitely a coincidence and I think Cinci will beat the vikings in the next game. Hopefully OchoCinco comes out with a speedy gonzalez outfit after a touchdown next week.

    I brought it up  mostly because I thought it was an interesting coincidence and because of the number thirteen thing, but I was reading Don Banks' latest column and there does seem to be a pretty solid trend to Favres' late season fade:

    Uh-oh.

    Looks like he has a pretty good chance to match last year's 1-4 finish with the Jets.

      yea but I'd have to argue and say this one didn't fall on Brett. He didn't even throw an interception in the game which was surprising to say the least. I thought he'd at least do that. This game was a coming out for QB Jay Cutler of the Bears and may have saved some coaching jobs there as well.

      Good win for the Bears, if anything, a morale victory for the Vikings. They were resilient and showed a lot of effort in their comeback attempt. Even Brad Childress didn't seem too distraught after the game. I think the Vikings will be okay in the long run. At least now they should feel comfortable in knowing that the offense has to run through Brett Favre.

        Giants will beat the Vikings next week. The Vikings are deflated with the loss to the Bears. They came so close and could not finish. I think faith in Favre as the Vikings savior is quickly diminishing and they will have an early playoffs exit like Favre said if things don't change. Their defense is not getting the turnovers or is not even dominating. If Jay Cutler throws for 4 TDs against your defense you don't deserve to win.

        You don't get moral victories from almost winning against a team that came in 5-9. And the Bears dropped a couple interceptions.

        Nor was it much of a coming out for Jay Cutler. He missed two passes that would have been easy touchdowns. That was a matter of the Vikings defense being bad, not Cutler being good.

        I think the Vikings have a good chance of being eliminated by the Packers in the Wildcard round.

    Farve played great.  Its the defense that's disappointing.

    Great second half for Favre.  The Peterson Fumble was the killer blow.

    I think the fact their schedule made them look much better than they actually were has a lot to do with this season, but at some point it's more than just a coincidence that every year the team he is on goes down hill late in the season. Especially when  both the Packers and Jets players were talking about how disruptive he was after he left.

    The Vikings pass defense was nowhere last night. They made Cutler look Pro Bowl caliber. And against the teams that will be in the NFC playoffs...Vikes better find a miracle cure and quick or they will exit first game.

    ha, now now, wavegirl! Your Giants had your superbowl two years ago! And they beat, arguably, the best team in history. What else do you want! smile

        Fair enough...If Sheridan isn't fired by the end of this season, I don't know what it takes to lose your job! And, maybe you can answer this for me...with that defensive front four, how are they not getting to the quarterback more often?

    Bret is a great QB,but we'll see if he as played passed his prime on how it all works out

    Well you can thank the Eagles for screwing it all up. Never make things easier for themselves. Sigh now the Vikings get the bye.
