No one knows if Brett Favre will be able to play Sunday against the Giants to extend his record consecutive games streak. But here’s one thing we do know: If Favre does play, it won’t be just for one token snap, to artificially continue the streak.
We know this because Leslie Frazier told Peter King, in no uncertain terms, that no such shenanigans will be allowed on his watch.
“No,” Frazier answered King when queried about the possibility of Favre taking one snap and exiting. “I wouldn’t do that. We wouldn’t do that. And I can tell you Brett wouldn’t want it that way. That isn’t what Brett’s about. Whoever’s writing that or saying that … it’s just not the way we do things. I can tell you this: If we decide to play Brett, it’s with the mindset that he’ll play the game, and play well.”
On Friday, Frazier said Favre will be a game-time decision. He said he will look at Favre on Sunday morning, and if Favre can’t complete all the necessary throws, he won’t go. As of Friday’s practice, Favre was still not really working out his arm, at least not in front of the media. The possibility remains that Favre could be playing possum a bit, but on the basis of what has been seen and reported, it appears Favre’s streak is in greater jeopardy than at any time in recent years.
