Brad Childress says Brett Favre will play the entire first half against the Houston Texans Monday, giving everyone a nice long look at the man some would be willing to sacrifice innocent animals to be rid of.
Starters usually get more action in the third preseason game than any other, so it’s no surprise that Brett – who, despite the last preseason game, is still the starter – would be in there for two entire quarters.
Assuming his old legs hold up for two entire quarters.
I’m sure the Texans people appreciate Brad making this announcement well in advance of the game. It will help ticket sales if people know they’re going to get a decent helping of Brett, who is already a hero in that neck of the woods anyway.
It remains to be seen how the second half will be divided up. Probably Sage for one quarter, the resurgent T-Jack for one quarter, and John David Booty SOL.
Let’s hope Bryant McKinnie and the gang can keep Mario Williams off Brett, giving him a chance to showcase his rocket launcher arm and nearly preternatural grasp of the Kick-Ass Offense.
