    Is Brett Favre Over The Hill?
    For several years sportscasters have predicted that each year would be the last year that Brett Favre played football. He would retire, go back to Kiln, Ms. and farm!

    In the event you missed last night's performance, this soon to be retired (per the sportscasters) over the hill (38 year-old) quarterback pulled off an 82 yard touchdown pass play as the first play from scrimmage in over time for a win.

    As a Life long Packer fan, I have to admire someone that has taken a team with limited talent and brought them to a 6-1 record at this time of the season.

    Still amazed by Brett. Every time I watch him. Man, he loves that game...

    Donuts: Aaron Brooks might be of SOME assistance to the Dolphins. Not much, but some.

    I am hoarse today from screaming my lungs out in celebration with that pass. My first thought when he chucked the ball with all he had was "no way in hell". When it was caught, I almost fell off the couch. LOL. That was absolutely amazing.

    When these guys start to talk about Brett being over the hill, I always internally chuckle...If you look around the league, who else is really out there as a tru franchise QB? Brady? Manning? It's sad but true.

    What most teams in the NFL need to consider is the value of a veteran QB vs. a rookie. It's a fact that almost 90% of the QB's that go into the NFL never make it, therefore when you have a franchise player like Brett F., I hate to say it, but owners need to maximize his talent as long as they can becuase they don't know when the next Bret Favre will come around...

    Look at Miami..prime example...

    However, our coach didnt do a good job during the draft which is another issue all together...

    I feel you Donuts, right there with you...

    Donuts...Does the name Vinnie Testaverde ring a bell. He is back slinging the ball and could have been the man for Miami!

    That was a great ending last night. What the Packers need to do, is find a running game, they are last in that department. And quickly. Should be priority for next year since I think with the way Brett is playing, he'll play at least another year.

    And Romo does remind me a lot of Brett and Romo was a big fan of him playing football himself in Wisconsin growing up.

    Yep, Brett loves the game, that's for sure. He looked good last night to me, so I'd put the wheel chair aside for now. As for the Dolphins, we cut Jake Plummer this year - so make him an offer and then gift wrap the footballs he uses so the cornerbacks appreciate all the balls he throws them.

    Favre shows that the best times often come when all hope is lost. Just look at the last couple of years. Four wins 2 years ago, and .500 last year. Now that the offense is getting more and more used to each other, they play great together. It was never his fault but they just needed more time as a team.

    Wow, all these Brett Favre fans!

    I wanted him back this year even if he was washed up - he brings a lot of excitement and fun to the game. Obviously he is not washed up - he leads the NFL in passing yards now.

    Well, our Ravens do have an Over The Hill quarterback - but he is NO Brett Favre. (Good ol' "Air" Mcnair has become known as "Medicare" McNair. Sorry )

    Brett Favre is far from being Over The Hill. At 38 he still has skill, talent, and most of all, class. Might not go all the way, but the Pack Is Back.

    It is obvious that Brett is far from over the hill, however the media would like to portray him as such. If that is over the hill...lead me there. This is one of his best years in the past few and he continues to do big things with, pretty much, an unknown supporting cast. Through the first six games of the season, there was no running game so the weight of the offense was on the arm of Brett Farve. I believe a true challenge is going to be when the Packers play Dallas. This has always been a game that borders on harsh rivalry and this year will be no exception. Tony Roma (billed in many circles as a young Brett Farve) will meet the old man himself and this could prove as exciting as the days when Tom Landry was coaching the Cowboys and George Allen was coaching the Redskins...it could be a real game of chess.

    HAHAHAHAHA, Beachy that made me laugh out loud. good stuff right there. That poor guy has been injury prone for years. Only thing about him is that he plays through every injury and pretty well. I have a ton of respect for "Medicare" Mcnair. Unfortunately he is on his last medicare check, as I think/hope for his own good, that he retires after this year.

    He had a great yeard but he proved to be the real Brett "The Interception King" Favre in another playoff game.

    I won't miss him if he does retire.

    I will miss him, not because I am a Packer fan, but because he is a terrific role model for his team mates and our children.

    Beating the Giants would have been nice.

    The Green Bay Packers must have done something right this year. Mike McCarthy was named Coach of the Year and Brett added more hardware by being named Fedex Air Player of the year. Would have been nice to have seen them in Arizona, but there is always another year.

    Well, good for him. He's had a 17 year career and it's been a good one. I always liked his style and his attitude. Congratulations are in order, for sure.

    It is a sad day. I loved watching Brett Favre play football. I'm glad he had a all-pro season as his last. I feel like even though he didn't win the superbowl this year, he is still going out on top.
