And my point is that unless anyone posting here is Brett Favre there is no factual basis to state that definitively, much less repeat it definitively. It is entirely inconsistent with Favre's 19 year career when he has played with documented injuries for which other players have missed games.Originally Posted by RealityLovesMe;3808351;
Here are the words of Tom Jackson who played nearly 15 years as a linebacker in the NFL. If you have a source with NFL experience that backs up the claim he was 'faking it', please post it. If not, I'll take Jackson's informed opinion as my final word on this one.
"What I will take away from this game, and yes it’s a team game, but the story really was Brett Favre. The courage that he showed on the field, the pounding that he took, the way he kept standing up, bringing this football team back. The way he almost won a football game when they actually offered the ball up to their opponent 8 times, lost 5. Five turnovers and still almost won that football game. If that’s the last image that I have of Brett Favre, then that’s a great image to have. Even in a losing effort, the courage that he showed today.”
