Brett Favre May Have Cracked Rib

ESPN has been told by Brett Favre that he may have a cracked rib.  The quarterback says that taking deep breaths gives him pain, and also says he has no plans to wear padding during Monday night’s preseason extravaganza.

This on the heels of Favre’s comment that he would “be surprised” if he is able to move the offense up and down the field and score touchdowns tonight.   Sounds like someone’s trying to lower expectations.

That’s okay Brett – my expectations are already pretty low.

    I think it is karma for the hutch thing. I laugh so hard. Sorry Vikes fans but after all of the he’s retiring, he’s not not retiring fiasco I think he got what he deserves. At least you have the Wild, T-Wolves and Twins.

    I saw the hits he was taking in that last game. Don’t worry panty man, this guy plays hurt more then most (all) QB’s. If they don’t get his arm he will be OK. If his is protected (count to five, slow) you will see him slice and dice the opponents. Yes, I am a cheese head (Kenosha, WI). I have never seen a QB take hits like him. But watch out! If you let people come straight at him “full speed, untouched” well yes you will screw him up!

    If you do a good job at protecting him, you’ve got a good team and running game, so I see you going all the way. Listen to him! I bet he got tougher in his old age, but he know’s how much fun it is to win.
